  1. What I gathered over the years from various server threads, the limits is mostly on the software end, with Dserver. As in, for example Finnish used to have various moving ground targets and a ton of scripted mission logic to make things come to life and would regularly lock up, crash, freeze, stutter and whatever else you can imagine, while only using the tiniest fraction of the available resources. The software is in desperate need of an update/rework. To be fair to the devs at this point also, it has been said multiple times that this is planned. For the BoBp update cycle IIRC, or that was the last time I saw it mentioned at least.
  2. Guess this thread is as good as any to maybe give this some airtime for those not on the discord 😁 He also said that it's going to take time, so keep that in mind. But for that we have dear Nocke and his valiant effort here, eh?
  3. Sounds good though! Keep at it and this will be something truly amazing
  4. Read dear deckerrunner's attempts to argue this in the "Game version 3.201 discussion" thread. The replies will give you the answer you're looking for😇
  5. Ah gotcha. Sorry I misunderstood you completely.
  6. No it's in QM as well. If you click on Custom you can turn it on/off at will otherwise it's enabled and disabled as Han said above.
  7. Server settings are a good enough solution I'd say. Gives people choice - insofar as there are like three servers to pick from that have any players... - and offers something to both sides. Those wishing for a 25km bubble or somrthing are of course left out, but hey... it's something? Anyway, kinda wish they had also tackled the LOD/zoom issue, but here's hoping for further quick hotfixes for that.
  8. Ok tested it, the zoom/LOD thing is still in. At least for ships. Spawned in the Anapa region of Kuban in QM, 5k altitude, ships disappear and reappear based on level of zoom and/or distance of the plane. As seen in this video:
  9. Thank you for a new signature😂 The Luftwaffle whiner in it's Red form. I love it. Yep. Was still happening to me prior to the current second hotfix. Haven't tried since. Here's hoping they fixed it.
  10. it's a GIMP work in progress file. PS might also be able to open then, not sure. /edit Oh yeah, also cheers for the template! I gotta admit I was too lazy to make one myself and was waiting for someone to do this.😇
  11. It's an issue with the LODs or something related. Happens with planes and ships as well. In VR, non VR, on my high end Nvidia card, buddy's older AMD one, you name it. I've been told the devs know about, but I haven't checked myself if it's been acknowledged anywhere.
  12. Inspired by the video above I decided to fiddle with my old reshade settings a bit and I came across a funny little twist: The LOD/zoom issue is still there. Contacts popping out and in at somewhere between 6,5km and 7km distance* depending on zoom level. Tested it with A20s, I-16s and 109K4s. So... fun. *Yes, yes, I know. It's great that we can actually see things at that distance, it's better than before the big patch. It's still not good enough than what we now have seen could be. And no, before you start putting words in my mouth, not talking about a distance of 100+.
  13. No, reshade is fine. It doesn't change any game files. Also for the gamma thing he posted in the video, set the file to write-protected afterwards.
  14. I'm on a 37" at 2560x1440. so... 😋 Dunno, maybe I'm too German and want to know the values too precisely for my own good, but even ignoring that I just hate how the game looks when fully zoomed out. The fish-eye effect making me nauseous doesn't help obviously. I mean good for you that it works and yeah, you're probably right about dogfights. I do mostly bombing runs and mud moving so that part ain't a real concern to me.
  15. Out of interest, how the hell did you manage to fly on max zoom out? I can never read any of the instruments if I do it. Been using the default zoom and head forward position for a while now. Only ever really change the height in almost all planes and move the default up and to the left in German fighters or my neck starts to hurt after a while.
  16. Which, my dear, isn't a solution. They hacked off the limb instead of pulling the splinter. Wouldn't the sane solution have been to leave it as is while they work on a fix, then deploy the fix? Instead of taking it all out?
  17. Yes. Definitgely so. Why? Because you could literally have contacts pop in and out of existence based on how far you were zoomed in, my dear. Have them pop in and out at will. As in visible at default view, you start zooming in for ID and they disappear. If you then did a reset back to default they would be right where they used to be. Not normal behaviour, that.
  18. Ye, pre-hotfix had me ecstatic for the game for the first time in ages. Not just "interested" or "yeah I feel the itch to fly something" but properly excited to be doing it. Been spamming Discord with my hyper obersvation the entire time I went out the first day. 😁 Major bummer this. It was sorta fine and acceptable when the low range was all we ever had, but knowing what is possible and how much fun and how exciting it COULD be and going back to seeing things in a little bubble is... meh. Utterly meh.
  19. That is essentially my system - less RAM on my part and a Ryzen - and I noticed nothing. It takes longer to load in, MP or QM, but I noticed that some folks with weaker systems are having problems. Oh as a matter of fact the performance on the ground, which was always a COMPLETE crapshoot for me no matter the system, is better for me! Instead of dropping to 70FPS when on the ground or very low in flight I am now in the high 90s. So while I obviously hope they will fix this for the rest of you, I'm in a good place right now with performance.
  20. Brief description: The old sound bug is back, from the Stalingrad days. No impact sounds on your own craft whatsoever. Detailed description, conditions: Happened in MP, various servers, not tested it in SP so far. First I thought it was related to the completely silent 262 as we got intercepted by them multiple times and never heard them shoot, their engines or their bullet impacts on our planes. Then I fought various 109s and had the same issue. Yet during the same fight I heard one set of impacts and I think it was from a 190, for what it's worth. Going by their nose shapes they were all new models, so Kurfürst and Doras, but that's hard to verify for me after the fact. Identical issue(s) for user @Leifr
  21. Love, love, love, love, love, love the Bodenplatte map ❤️ I am slightly salty that my home town was left out in favour of some crap holes in the middle of nowhere and now I am denied the pleasure of bombing it, but that doesn't change the fact that it's gorgeous and huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge. I've seen Jason's posts about the size but before flying it I had no real idea just how large that would be. It of course helps that I know the depicted areas pretty well, so maybe that's a large part of it. Quick question to those in the know: The elevator trim in the P-38 seems to be inverted in techno chat compared to other craft. Is that a bug in techno chat or a design thing with American craft? Sorta like the inverted throttle in the Mc 202 for example. Cheers!
  22. Heya 72AG folks, regarding the training server of yours (which doesn't have a thread as far as I can tell), I'd like to know who I can talk to with in regards to a fella that just goes around killing random people. In my case, a buddy and me that I was talking through flying the Ju-88. Really annoying and kinda against what a training server would be useful for. Sorry if I sound whiny, but it was proper annoying thing to happen after we climbed to 4k already.
  23. I concur, it's a nice mission, but it's all a bit close together and crowded. /edit Looking at the stats, on my last sortie I damaged a friendly player in a 110 with my bombs named "Bonqu". If you're reading this: I'm sorry, was an accident. And we figured it was one of our group or I would've said so in chat.😓
  24. Why would you sully this wholesome moment with facts? 😰
