  1. Heartily agree, as i've mentioned in the bombs thread I honestly feel like bombers aren't wanted in this game sometimes, all the glory goes to the fighters and us dirt turners get the second thoughts. I know the 234 is coming but, I can't see that making any difference or having anything particularly special. i'd much rather we see flyable C-47's, B-25's, and honestly a later version of the A-20. Hell, i'd like to see torpedoes added, we know they're possible thanks to mods. with a channel map coming this should be a big thing.
  2. It was a Mk.1 tropical he flew according to Scramble, he lamented that they'd been issued mk.II's only to have them taken away and given old mk.1's to fly to malta, then he had the service panel break open mid flight and spent all his time with his leg wedging the pedal open to keep her straight. I think as he was there may to november before his breakdown which means they won't have been using the established desert scheme from sep 41, rather you're more likely to find that they'll be Dark green and tan, @Lemsip has done a fair bit on this for his fantastic Roald Dahl series, usua
  3. I'll be honest, my group have all switched to smaller bombs and long drops because we've found taking anything over 100kg pointless, where before we were flying the Peshka with 4 250's now we'll instead take the a-20 with 20 100's, the 88, the amazing 4 500's and 2 250 mix we'll just take the 100's, honestly it's made the larger loads pointless, same in the 110. even offline i'm finding smaller bombs a better option now, but I guess as this is "Working as intended" maybe they don't want us using larger bombs anymore? splash damage has been utterly nerfed to death, you practica
  4. This. which is worrying as Valiant effort had plans for lancasters, halifax's, mosquito's, wellingtons etc etc. My genuine hope for Il2 is we get at least a flyable B25, (the 26 would be lovely but obv i realise costs etc), and I'd very much like to see the C47 flyable as well for allied supply and para runs. there's more of us dirt turners than people think I reckon.
  5. I'm addicted, clearly. Mid 70's high vis scheme, VF-41 Black aces.
  6. I would highly recommend (in no particular order) Lions of Kalinin Fire and Ice JG51 over Velikie Luki Langnase Dora Platzschutzstaffel Pitomnik Campaign Taman Bridgehead Ivan's war Moscow Sky The Butcher i've played a few scripted and these are mostly what i keep installed and come back to regularly.
  7. Well that's torn it, i'm going to have to do all the squadrons now... VF-84 Jolly Rogers VF-111 Sundowners VF-111 will be on HSD shortly i've just uploaded, it was very fun to put together. Spotted a mistake on my sundowners skin, corrected version re-uploading to HSD
  8. I Also wish to add my support to this request, I entirely understand the logistics of mirroring parts but it genuinely would mean so very much to us skinners, and we know we are a minority, and please do not take us as ungrateful, anything but in fact. Thank you.
  9. It'd be lovely to be able to fly the plane that drops those beautiful paras, it's ripe for a paid add on.
  10. I'm yet to fully test but I believe it is here: With wireframe on it looks ok, with it off it's almost pure black, this appears to be the bit that's causing the see through parts. if you modify these two black boxes with a lighter grey in the alpha before applying to your skin it should fix the issue. again, i'm yet to fully test this as i've not skinned the 39 directly myself but a quick download and fiddle appears to indicate this as the location. edit: worth mentioning that there's black squares on the skin template too so possibly worth lightening the
  11. This should fix standard skins, however, these ones by 216th_Cat appear to have used a very dark alpha layer for the nose inner which will basically come out as see through I had the same with one of the vents on the P38 skin tbh and had to alter the Alpha so it wasn't so dark, after that i had no further issues, happy to discuss in skins or via PM if these are your skins. edit, No cat has been tagged, i'm sure he'll update these at some point.
  12. In two weeks* *Please be sure to read this two weeks before actual release.
  13. Hi, I've recently uploaded a seafire skin to HSD based on the irish air corps, is it of any use to you?
  14. No! we're about to fly blue for the month! Hey devs can the update wait a little bit? 😄 Good update, great to see BON moving forward, the 410 model is lovely and the 4k skins are very welcome.
  15. Used my reaction quota so i'll say it instead, Thank you
  16. "Luke you've turned off your norden bombsight!"
  17. Ah, bridge over the river... wait, where are we? @Leifrwhat grid square are we in again? Wait, I see the target. - is usually how our raids go. My only concern will be the lack of air cover from our blue fighters who will undoubtedly be hovering over this new lovely frontline waiting for their next catch.
  18. because instead of ground attack, most german players flock and camp objectives stacked at 1000ft intervals in fighters crying "MINE!" as an allied plane hoves into view. obv, this is not everyone but appears to be the standard way on most servers.
  19. I don't use headtracking in DCS, but I do use wallhacks, in IL2, i have a seeing eye dog that wears my head tracker for me to even the playing field.
  20. How do we know you're not using a swivel chair?
  21. Ok, I'm keen to dive into TC however the control setup makes NO GODS DAMNED SENSE. can anyone share their suggestions/configs and provide any advice here? i'm working with a full hotas setup, warthog throttle, VKB Gladiator II and VKB pedals with a quadrant and even a button box for extra clickyness. but i see some use mouse and keyboard? honestly, would like to play this but there appears to be a wall to climb first. help is much appreciated. thank you Pete
  22. @szelljr Why aren't these lovely 88 skins on HSD man? Got a couple already but please upload the others, the world needs these!
  23. I mean, I was making a flippant joke but ok.
  24. 50.cal's won't melt steel 109 tail beams... Please be aware though that this tech is visual, it doesn't affect the physical interaction between the projectiles and aircraft and tank parts or systems. We're working on the improvements in the physical damage system as well, but we'll tell you more about that later. But they will soon.
  25. Click in the loading window of HSD then away again, it should resume loading but change focus to whatever you were previously on, I had this too. should do until they patch
