  1. Dear IL-2 friends, first of all, thanks a lot! I have to apologize, my reply took longer than planned… First of all, I will not switch to Intel CPUs. I invested a bit more money in the past to go with the X470 platform, as I wanted my board to be more future-proof. I did not know that even the new 4000-series will be supported by my mainboard. In this case, I will wait and go for the 3000XT-series or the new 4000-series. I've got fpsVR and noticed hat my GPU operates at around 90-95 %, it seems that my CPU does not hold me back at the moment, with the current settings. I will do a few more flights this afternoon and keep an eye on the benchmarks. I have no gut feelings about the current workload of my whole system at the moment, but I will keep monitoring. tl;dr: I will not do any updates at the moment. I will stay with the GTX-1070ti and the Ryzen 5 2600X for now and try to do some tweaks here and there. I think it will be okay until autumn when I will check out my new options… @Alonzo: Great explanation about the simulation of a better graphic card. I will absolutely do a test flight and take a look how my system performs. My 2600X is not overclocked, as I have absolutely no experience with overclocking. Only my GTX-1070ti is slighty (!) overclocked with Afterburner.
  2. Dear IL-2 friends, I am in the process of updating my rig. Currently, I am using a ASUS Hero VII WiFi with 16 GB DDR4-3200, AMD Ryzen 5 2600X and GTX-1070ti. As I am a proud Valve Index owner, I exclusively fly in VR and need the maximum performance. I was thinking to update to an used 1080ti (as the new 3080 series will be released soon) or an 2080ti (and don't hop on the 3080 train). But then I red that the CPU performance for IL-2 is much more important than the GPU performance. Can you confirm that? Would upgrading my rig to an Ryzen 7 3800X or an Ryzen 9 3900X make a noticeable (!) difference? Thanks a lot and best regards! Marcel
  3. First of all: Thank you all! I did some test flights with 50 % fuel and it is a day & night difference indeed! This plane is great and I am so happy that I am able to fly it now! I will also check out the sensitivity settings and do some adjustments, thanks for the advice! Best regards, Marcel
  4. Hello guys, thanks a lot! I used the default settings, 100 % fuel, indeed. Will try to use less when I do a flight session in the evening. I really love this plane - it is just beautiful. Would be great if I learn to fly it. I‘ll keep you updated! Best regards, Marcel
  5. Hi guys, I felt in love with IL-2 around four weeks ago, I think this is a great piece of software by all means! I just have big (like HUGE) problems flying the P-51. It is nearly impossible for me to do turns without stalling over one wing. I have absolutely no problems flying the Tempest, the Bf-109, the Fw-190, the P-38 - but the P-51 always kills me (the P-47 too, but not as much as the P-51). Do I something wrong? Obviously, I have to do something wrong! The funny thing is: I was able to fly a quick missions today and shot some Ju-52… the flight was great! Absolutely no problems with stalling, I did smooth inputs, etc. But after reloading the mission to shot some other planes - everything went nuts, it seemed I was flying a rock… Any advices and handling tipps are welcome! Thanks a lot, especially do the developers which all do a great work. I am a developer, too, so I see a lot of similarities to my own job/company hanging around on this forum. Best regards, Marcel
  6. Does the new update requires new settings to archive optimal performance? I am using a slightly overclocked GTX-1070ti with the Valve Index and struggling to find the optimal settings… I am confused about the new AA options, if they are still needed if I use Super Sampling on SteamVR, etc.
