    Me 262 Questions

    1. What is the 262: The Me 262 is a Jumo 004 jet engine propelled fighter / fighter bomber of the German Luftwaffe. 2. When to use it: Always, especially when the german team outnumbers the allied 3:1 and you can enjoy total impunity. 3. Where to use it: Mainly in multiplayer to show off against your victims and become a topscoring skyknight. 4. How to use it: Press ''E'' to start engines..... 5. How good is it: B 17 pilots don't like it very much. 6. What 'don'ts': Meet the Red Tails.

    Custom Alpha Channel Tutorial for Gimp (advanced skinners)

    I will try to explain it in more clear terms (to be fair the guide is quite dated and I'm not a native speaker myself). If you use high value / RGB the reflections will be stronger, glossier, 'mirror like'. This is what I originally referred to as 'shine'. Lower value / RGB will give you diffuse reflections, matt finishes, which is what I called 'glow'. If you are unsure about the effects you can take a look at the official Alpha Channel textures to see the difference between the grey tones. It is very much self explanatory.

    Real plane Vs joystick

    The more precise the stick the better. Real aircraft can be steered precisely and with little to no play to controlls. No joystick can really replicate that.

    Engine-Sound Mods and official sounds

    There are not static 'flyby' sounds because unlike 1946 sounds are generated based on physical events in BoX. Everything changes dynamicly. Basicly, if all sound samples match up, flybys should sound very realistic with FMod.

    is there some sort of helicopter worth looking at

    An undeservedly overlooked machine that could have been the first practical military utility helicopter

    Developer Diary 202 - Discussion

    The aircrafts are looking stunning but personally the map suprises me most. Will definetly enjoy flying around the new european regions if this quality is consitent.

    Stuka Dive Bombing

    Did you center your rudder trim prior rolling over? Once at speed rudder trim will mess up your flight path and make bombs land unpredictable. Also you might want to execute the rollover slower and dive with brakes to allow for more time for leading and correcting your dive attitude.

    [MOD] Cockpit 4k rework

    Nice work there. Saves a lot of time compared to recreating all details entirely and still preserves suprisingly lots of the original. Just to be sure, this is a Photoshop plugin or seperate tool you're working with?

    What about adding middle british bombers?

    Any amerucan twin engine bomber makes more sense tbh. B-25, B-26, A-20G, A-20J, ect.

    KNIGHTS OF THE AIR Multiplayer Server

    Good, simple mission design. The only suggestion I have is to add a little bit of wind / turbulence to make flights a bit more interesting. Anyways, thx for hosting & keep it up!

    What was the coolest German aircraft concept...

    A patent doesn't give credit to development but invention. It's still true that the first jet engine to sucessfully take to the air was a german axial flow engine. Since both rely on different working principles their developments were completely seperate of which Ohain's came to fruition earlier.

    What was the coolest German aircraft concept...

    The germans had operational jet engines since 1939 that were taken to flight while the British were still stuck at test stands trying to solve the issues of the Whittel engine Looking back at the outcome it's fair to say both were pretty much even in developing the first operational jet engines. For the sake of posting pictures of cool looking aircraft have a He 178.
