  1. Some with planes operating from aircraft carriers. It would be something new to IL-2 serie, big ships, returning to carrier with damaged plane on i.e. TAW when your virtual life matters and you are trying hard to save the plane and the pilot.
  2. People here agreed 2d bars from RoF (which compensated feeling the controls in the hand) are ok. But what is a profit of having overheat message when you have temp gauge in the cockpit? Or damage control? Or optimal mixture control? Or flaps % if you have indicator in the cockpit? And many more. The only profit of that is you don't have to use the cockpit at all, even in most realistic servers. Just fly with you sight locked at the enemy 100% of the time. PS. Why aybody would take i.e. thermometer as additional gauge in WWI FC planes if he has tipses which are more capable and do not weight 1kg?😃
  3. Many simulators have perished trying to please casual players at the expense of simulation fans. IL-2 will never win the number of War Thunder players anyway. With bot opitons available we would have both servers for casual players with tips, artificial compas, damage control and GPS and realistic for fans of sim approach.
  4. 25% off for "Feedback Feature" functionality, valid until 20.11. - does it mean the patch with Po-2 next week?
  5. Luftwaffe Aircraft Losses By Theatre September 1943 - October 1944 4.06 times as many aircraft were lost in combat in the West than were lost in the East. During the period a constant 21-24% of the Luftwaffe's day fighters were based in the East when 75-78% of the day fighters were based in the West.
  6. Fuel tanks management was unofficially announced long time ago, now it's not sure if we we will have this feature implemented. It would be great but it has not been officially announced yet. This mechanics applies to all aircraft, not just Me-262, although in the case of Me-262 and American long-range fighters like P-51, P-47, P-38 the lack of manual fuel tank management would be much more important than in tactical planes from the Eastern front.
  7. Yes, nice detailed discription. But it won't change such a big difference of FW190 (excep tA-8) in speed above 6km.
  8. No. They say that want to keep their FM within 1% of the reference data. Not 10%. Just imagine what is 10% difference, calculate in mind. It would be like day and night. Gavrick about La-5FN: So La-5FN is 5km/h faster than average real plane tests at sea level and 12km/h faster than average real plane tests at 6km. He didn't say anything about higher altitudes. Looks like the higher the bigger the discrepancy. Looks like above 6m performence drop of La-5 and Fw190 is far too small. For now looks like high altitude performance are not modeled for this fighters. What is strange Yak and Bf109 performance drop looks close to real data.
  9. About La-5FN one of developers, Gavrick i think, said La-5FN is 5km/h faster than real plane tests at sea level and 12km/h faster than real plane tests at 6km. He didn't say anything about higher altitudes. Looks like the higher the bigger the discrepancy. About FW190 i know Germans decided to give pure fighter role over western front to Bf109 because FW190 with BMW801 struggled over 6000-6500m. It may be connected with physical engine of the game. Maybe it was not optimized to this kind of circumstances. They are proffesionals so they are aware of this high altitude parameters for sure.
  10. It's huge, play RoF and you are going to find out. With inexact small graphic bars you don't open the throttle using "pernect" not even knowing where is manifold gauge, you don't set RPM by % don't even knowing where is RPM indicator in the cockpit, you don't set the mix without looking at RPM and so on, and so no. But we are talking about the rest. Look at the table @bies placed, do you really think the right side is more attractive than the left side? Even on the most realistic servers? Contrary to all other flight sims except War Thunder (if WT is a sim at all...)?
  11. @SharpeXB Ok, for the fourth time; what you are talking about is NOT being discussed in this topic. Overall, not exact%, RoF like axis bars CAN stay. The HUD giving awareness, diagnostic and information bigger than modern computerised jet fighter in WWI and WWII plane and rendering cockpit indicators useless should be option to choose by admin.
  12. Well, the real 109 pilot actually indeed had to look at flaps marks on his wing to know to what angle he lowered his flaps (what is modeled in the game but many players don't even know about that because this technochat😂) That’s a good example of how technochat renders cocpit indicators useless to the point many players don't even know developers modeled many features nad indicators in their game because with full hud in every server there is no purpose to look at cockpit indicators Do you think real 109 pilot lowered flaps by "feel" idk. counting revolutions in his mind? Or reading percents on his binoculars? Or maybe by looking at marks on his wing? And one more time: So virtual axes without exact percent like in Rise of Flight could stay and make players without any joystick perfectly aware of every axis, even more than real pilot, but not in form of exact % but like in RoF , more or less bars.
  13. It was solved in RoF by displaying mini axes in lower part of the screen, you didn't know if you have 85 or 86% of the throttle/radiator etc. but you had overal idea like real pilot had. And what was the most important you didn't know - without looking at gauges in the cockpit - if you are overheating, damaged, leaking. You had to use gauges and other output and it was great and immersive. Adding an option to turn off technochat would be fantastic, it's already the most supported suggestion in IL-2 forum. Coding this feature would take 1 hour, it's already in the game but in other place - you can turn it off in SP (for yourself) but not in MP as server admin. In RoF, DCS, old IL-2 1946 and many other sims there is a lot of servers with this chat blocked.
