  1. Resurfacing this zombie thread - still really confused about what exactly the difficulty settings (and all the settings under "Options" dropdown) do in the career mode - has there been any documentation on this from the devs?
  2. Warning: Dumb question Why is removing the prop disc a sought after feature? I'm pretty new to the game and have been playing in VR, but I haven't experienced any (obvious?) issues with the prop disc so wondering if I'm missing something.
  3. All super interesting! Does this mean that there are predefined loadouts with tail gunner for the 43 version that the AI squadron commander would choose? Sorry if this is a dumb question, stumbling my way through the game here
  4. Thank you for the info! I should have specified that I'm flying the first summer career in BOS so I think this would the the 42 version. So it sounds like playing careers that come later would have the AI commanders choose the rear gunner variant??
  5. Hey all! Newbie here I've been playing with Career mode (loving the features so far!) - one item I am getting hung up on is how the AI selects load outs. I'm flying a Jr. officer, so I'm not messing with loadouts for the team - I'm noticing that the AI commander *never* selects the turret gunner variant of the IL2 for the squadron to fly. So far I haven't been super impressed with the AI, which leads to our planes flying in formation straight towards the target and taking turns getting pummeled by AI fighter cover - friendly fighter cover don't seem to be much of a help in fending off enemy AI, so it feels like we're left defenseless. I feel like turret gunners would at least help provide some defense in these situations - is there any historical reason why these wouldn't be used? Does it depend on which squadron I pick in career? Is the only solution here to just take over the squadron and assign my own load outs? (sidenote: are there any AI improvement mods out there?)
  6. Hey all, I'm not able to maintain 90fps in my Oculus CV1, it consistently drops to 45fps any time I'm in range of other planes / close to the ground etc. This is true in both quick mission and in Career mode, though I would really like to play this game in Career, so maintaining 90fps there is the goal. My system specs: Intel Core i9 9900K 8-Core 3.6GHz (5.0GHz TurboBoost) ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming-ITX/ac Memory: 16GB CORSAIR VENGEANCE 3000MHz (2x8GB) NVIDIA 11GB GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Founder's Edition Il2 Settings: Balanced Resolution: 800x600 Shadow Quality: Low Mirrors: Off Distance Landscape Detail: x2 Horizon draw distance: 70km Grass Quality: Normal Clouds Quality: High Antialiasing: 4 Vsync, SSAO & Distance Buldings: Off HDR, Sharpen & Use 4k Textures: On SS not enabled **** I'm really surprised by the performance - would appreciate any help or insight! I'm launching IL2 BOS via Steam VR (I bought the game through steam).
