    Icon rework

    Having the option to remove the object ID / Name line and reduce the object icons to a simple colored shape icon would be huge for VR users. That would dramatically reduce screen clutter in large battles. Thanks for the reply.

    The future of Clod after v5.00, just a few thoughts.

    Your not wrong there Captain, except that computer flight sims didn’t exist yet in my youth. I’m not “making noise”, I’m just pointing out that the titles supported are very limited so it’s a good market to pursue. I’m glad to hear it’s on the agenda, so we will wit and see.

    Good to hear. I am looking forward to it. I know VR is a big pain to set up and get running, and certainly takes a sizeable investment.of time and money. It also changes the way you experience a flight sim. I would imagine the resolution and field of view will improve over time and reduce the negative aspects I have no idea what it takes to get an existing engine to run with something like Steam VR, but it is hard for me to go back and fly on a flat screen now.

    The future of Clod after v5.00, just a few thoughts.

    I”m not holding my breath on this 5.0 update to CLoD, but I can tell you first hand that it will appeal to American flight simmers. A few of you around here used to know me as Bird_brain and I used to write campaigns along with Extreme_One and some others in IL2 FB. I still fly the sim, but it’s not like it used to be when I could talk to the old Aces living in my town and get their stories and then recreate and fly them in a virtual environment. Most of them are gone now. I am particularly interested in this update since I did a couple of offline campaigns that included the Allied “Torch” linvasion of North Africa. Revisiting a campaign that could be flown from the German, British or American vantage points would get me back into flying this title. Martlets, and the P40s and Spitfires battling 109F2s and 4s. In my opinion, you will tap into a market that has been ignoring this sim since it moved it’s focus to the Eastern European front. Flying a P40, P47, P38 or a P51 is more important to an American than you might guess. To put it in perspective, I’ve ridden a lot of motorcycles but I own a Harley Davidson. It’s not the sportiest or the cheapest, or the most efficient, but I feel comfortable with it. It is ingrained in the American psyche that you ride American hardware into battle because it was built by other Americans doing their best to make sure your equipment would not fail you. No one forced them or coerced them and no corners were cut in putting your equipment together. With the increased availability and ease of access to Oculus Rift and HOTAS controls, you would be silly not to include VR support in this title. I have a VR simulator setup now and if you don’t support it, I will probably go back to DCS like most Americans or fly Bodenplatte. Just sayin’...

    This HAS to change.....

    Am I missing something here? I didn't know there was a way to fly with a live friend against AI.
  6. That happens to me almost every mission. Level 8 pilot, taking off from all airports in FW 190 with wingmen. Bombs or no bombs. I have tried giving them various commands, shallow ascent, steep ascent. no luck. I completed this mission. Bombed a train and shot down a Lagg. Who needs a Katschmarek anyway? The simple solution is an air start, but they don't bomb the target anyway. They are good bait for fighters on an intercept though. I have made a bug report. They listed it as fixed in the update log. Not fixed IMHO. First wingman veers to port Crash... 1 down 2 down last one clipped a tree on his way in.

    FW 190 A-3 skins

    Thanks, I caught that as well. I have already uploaded a revised file. I also fixed the yellow underside of the wingtips that according to a reference i found includes the ailerons, moved the tail insignia a bit and worked on the alpha layer so the exhaust stains and wear areas are non reflective. You guys don't miss a trick. Based on number of downloads, people seem much more interested in winter skins, just FYI

    So it is... and the same on the one behind it too. It looks like the cross was moved aft from how much yellow is on the rear of the canopy. I'll have to work on that tomorrow.

    FW 190 A3/U3 "Black 3" from 14.(Jabo)JG/5. This plane operated from Petsamo in northern Finland against Russian shipping in the Barents Sea west of Murmansk. On 5 October 1943, Unteroffizier Hans Gunther Kleemann bailed out of Black 3 after getting lost and running out of fuel. The crashed airplane was recovered in 1984 and sent to the United States for restoration. It eventually made it's way back to Norway for final restoration and now sits in the Norwegian Aviation Museum. It is one of only a few surviving A3's in the world. Now it's back kicking a$$ in IL2 BOS...... You can download skin file in the skins thread under pilot art.
