  1. Avimimus, Good questions. Here is my take on it: Is it harder than in real life? I’m not a pilot in real life, but I did fly a lot on commercial flights for work before Covid. Granted, the view out of the small window is not the best, but I always found that spotting ground vehicles and tracking them well was difficult until we were relatively low and often found myself reflecting that it must be hard for ground attack pilots as we were approaching for the landing. So I don’t think that it’s harder in the game. As for the aircraft elements blocking line of sight, you’re absolutely right and this makes it very difficult to hold formation in multiplayer when searching for vehicles, as there is a lot of banking involved to spot convoys. For fixed targets it’s easier and what I do is to take the time to study the map to narrow your search box when running in, and it makes quite a bit easier because you can use bigger landmarks as references. On large squads operations we also have the luxury of a briefing with map extracts, which helps a lot! Finally, I suspect that for ground spotting your settings matter quite a bit. With my current rig my settings are not maxed out and I’m not in VR. I find that for air contacts I can usually spot them before my squad mates, but for ground targets they have tally before me. Ian
  2. Bruce, I reported the same black outline as you but I noticed that few people do. One thing that I noticed is that both of us are not using the latest driver. I believe 20.4.2 is available, so I will try to update that tonight and report back if it helps. Ian
  3. 1. Your videocard model. RX-460 4GB 2. Your driver version. 20.2.2 (yes just noticed that i should update!) 3. Have you artefacts like on attached screenshots or not (answer "No, I haven't these glitches" - is very important to know too!). Yes, mostly these two: black flickering/squares appearing on ground and when flying very low & black jagged line around aircraft contour when viewing from cockpit. 4. Does FXAA to MSAA swithcing solving this issue for you completely? Better with MSAA, but not solved completely. 5. Does driver settings reset to Factory settings with choosing default GAME profile after that helps? No 6. If you're using some kind of graphics mods (migoto, re-shade or something) does turning them off helps you? No mods.
  4. I have Kuban as well, it was my original purchase a few weeks back. Moscow and Bodenplatte were the additions this weekend. so for those interested I decided to try the Il-2 scripted campaign as suggested by Fernando. This eases me in to managing the radiators, rpm and mixture (vs the 109 that I did my first career with). Following this campaign I will move on to one of the larger airplane based on all the comments here. I did a few practice runs in quick mission and then started the campaign. I’m on mission 3 now. Not doing too bad by need to improve bombing accuracy. I’m used to CCRP/CCIP remember! Thanks again for all your input. Ian
  5. Hey thanks everyone for all your input. Much appreciated! I may also reconsider to fly more online. Seems like a very welcoming community. Beazil I’ll check out your site. Thanks again. Ian
  6. Hi everyone. First post here. Long time flight simmer (mostly modern -DCS- and civilian -FSX way back-) but new to IL2:GB. Just got the game a couple of weeks back, getting to know these WW2 planes. So far it's been extremely enjoyable and this seems like a very lively community. Initially started with Kuban, BF-109 career to get take advantage of the more automatic engine management features of the german planes so that I didn't have to learn everything at the same time. I got killed after 11 missions. Very fun as I said, liked the Ironman mode, makes you take more realistic decisions and makes the takeoff/landing matter more: you don't want to kill your career with a stupid mistake. I got Moscow and Bodenplatte this morning. My plan is to restart maybe a couple of careers in parallel to have variety, another fighter pilot career, but also a bomber as I enjoyed this aspect more in DCS. Which bomber would you recommend that I start with? Should I go with a CAS airplane like the IL-2 or maybe even the BF-110 or go for the pure bombers? Single player mode for the moment, as I don't have much time to play online. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks. Ian
