  1. Also a nice suggestion. I wound up flying Lvov during dusk in the rain, then I realized since the TB-3 has an open cockpit I probably shouldn't fly in the rain. So I switched from rain to poor visibility. It wad quite a challenge to find the airfields in poor visibility.
  2. Thanks for the suggestions. And yes, I am flying without mods.
  3. So, just as the title says, I'm looking for the best maps to fly as far as gazing and viewing things. I have some full missions built on Hawaii, Soloman Islands, and Lvov. But, the game has so many maps to choose from. Since building a full mission takes time, I'd like to see what the community here recommends as far as new maps to choose from. I've been flying the TB-3 and the B-24, so longer runways would be useful. But any recommendations are welcome. Thanks.
  4. We would need to know more than that to help you. What errors? Are you able to open the installer at all? Did you get the gsme installed and try compatibility mode? Also, if you have the CD key you could redeem it on Steam for a copy of the game. If not, it's only $9.99 on GOG and Steam. That's an incredibly low price for an excellent game that comes with four games worth of DLC
  5. @buster_dee Wow I really appreciate the breakdown. I noticed that when I use the keyboard commands that are set to trimming it doesn't seem to do anything. Do I need to remap the controls? Other than that, that was a very helpful breakdown. I'm coming at this with no background in aviation, and I have no mechanical or engineering background of any kind. With that said, the whole reason I wanted to get into flight simming was to learn about aircraft and how they function. So I'm sure it'll take me a lot of practice and rereading before I get some of this stuff down. But thanks again. I also have been watching the Air Combat Tutorial Library channel on YouTube just as somebody recommended earlier.
  6. Thank you for the recommendation. It looks like a very detailed channel so I will check it out! Thanks for your response! I looked over the B-24 portion of the manual and it is helpful. But beyond that, as a newcomer where should I go to learn more about the difference between oil temp, water temp, and air temp for example. I'm coming at this with very little knowledge so I don't even know what manifold pressure is vs oil pressure. More than that, I don't know how to monitor these things while flying.
  7. Just as the title says. I'm wondering what is the best way to go about learning the instrument panel and layout for the various aircraft. Mainly I'm flying the TB-3 and the B-24, and I sometimes fly the A-20 or the P-38. I'm sure the best way would be to pick a single aircraft and try to master its systems, but what I'm wondering is if there are good tutorials out there or forum posts to read. I'm also new to flight sims so I'm basically starting from knowing nothing.
  8. Well, I figured that the boost was apart of the overheating problem. Correct me if I'm wrong as I am still new to the game. I also only have my boost set to either 0 or 100 percent so I need to readjust my settings so I can increase/decrease in increments. I'm currently simming with keyboard/mouse and controller, so I don't have any type of throttle control with which to set the boost settings. Either way, it's nice talking to someone who worked on the B-24 portion of the game. It does fly nicely and it looks great in-game.
  9. I'm finding that the B-24 is a pleasure to fly. I also have trouble keeping the engines cool, however. Lately I've been using full power and boost to takeoff, then once I'm at cruising altitude I drop power to about 75 percent and open the radiators all the way, and of course I lose the boost. It seems to work ok. A navigator position would be quite interesting. Didn't know about the second pilot option. Good to know. *edit As I'm still new to the game, is the second pilot option for the B-24 only available in multiplayer? As in, could I switch to the co-pilot seat in single player?
  10. Actually since posting this, I wound up spending a bunch of time in the B-24 and the TB-3. I've been trying to get a better feel for using the radiator as well as the supercharger (for the B-24, that is). That is exciting news! I look forward to it.
  11. So my goal is to use the mission builder to simulate bringing large aircraft such as the C-47 or B-17 to taxi, takeoff, and land at the same airstrip. So far, I'm unable to spawn inside the aircraft. I can fly other aircraft fine (such as the A20 or TB-3). Is it possible to fly the C-47 or B-17 without mods? I'm new to the game and still figuring things out.
  12. If you got the game from Steam, then you can find all the manuals here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL 2 Sturmovik 1946
  13. I notice there's an issue with the chase cam on certain missions. I'm playing a pilot campaign with the TB-3 Bomber. I start my take off using the chase cam (default F8) or sometimes the F2 cam. For whatever reason, once I takeoff from the airstrip the game jumps me back to cockpit view. I've tested this out on other aircraft campaigns and this doesn't seem to be a problem (For example, the chase cam works fine with the A-20C and the B-25). I tried remapping these cams to a different key binding and that doesn't fix the problem. Does anyone have any familiarity with this issue and is there a possible fix? Many thanks. *edit* I found the detailed difficulty editor. Problem solved
