  1. haven't been playing for a while now, but there were a few servers with tags enabled. one of them in particular almost all the time had people on it and that was the "official 1CGS DED EU" server (or something like that) what a lovely response, you must be fun to hang around with.
  2. one comes to think that il-2 in its current state doesn't really do this aeroplane justice - but that's kind of how it always has been (remember the days when you were constantly stalling, even in slight turns? which rendered the plane basically useless in dog fights? ahhh, those days...)
  3. I own and use that 100 dollar non pro version and I can tell you that it is by far the best "all in one" solution (meaning you have the throttle + twist axis on it) I have ever used. now for the base of the pro version, I cannot tell you if it's good or not but given the companys reputation (regardin materials they are using and their sensor tech), I'd wager it's pretty good. what I can comment on though is the kg12 grip: it's fine. sure, it may be authentic and all in shape, but honestly, if there were a few more buttons on it I'd like it more.
  4. now I don't know whether you as a person can be as excited for this "type" of aeronautics as you probably can be for ww2-era aviation, but nonetheless, even if you are not, at least this criminally under-appreciated collab of a french artist and the european space agency might catch a few more views on this imo excellent piece
  5. it's nice I guess. a bit of a shame that we are not getting an announcement for any new lw collector planes, but I guess it makes sense if allied planes sell better
  6. I believe so, yes. but honestly, it does not need to be physically accurate as nothing in this game really is, so I still dont get it why it needs to be like that in this game
  7. regarding the thicc A-bar of the canopy, simply put, the way it is in this game is heavily flawed. the view to the front on a fw190 might not have been the best for the pilot, but it was certainly no way near as bad as it is in this game. there are quite a few videos of actual planes or reproductions of the thicc armoured front glass panel that prove how flawed the fw190 cockpit is handled in this game. the reason for this is, as far as I can remember (as has been explained by the developers in the past a couple of times), that they cannot implement it into the game for some reason. here are a few videos to show you how it should probably look like
  8. much about said server can be found here (even though it's not very well structured, frankly) other servers with similar (if not identical settings) are: aswell as personally, I'd advise you to at least take a look into the other servers aswell, especially the Oh My Dog one. not to bash anyone here, but the "official" 1CGS DED server does not really have the most active or even caring admins (and that's quite the understatement, actually) which is why the server pretty much is like wild west and getting shot on the runway therefor seems to be allowed. regarding the server being "official": I think it has never been completely explained in public, but the server actually seems to be somewhat semi-official. the admins that set it up and run it are for some reason credited in the games actual credits accessible trough the main menu. but if you ask the devs or the support of IL-2 about it, they'll just say that there are no official servers from them. so that's that. as I said, kind of wild west
  9. jokes and memes aside, I agree that Pe-2 gunners have been and probably still are too good at what they do. they still manage to land critical hits in ridiculous conditions and extremely short time frames. but, to the devs credit, it has been worse in the past. so at least they seem to be aware of the issue and try to bend it a little towards making it more believable. why of any planes it has to be the Pe-2 that has this OP-gunners issue is what is really interesting about it, if you ask me. I think it's just the AI that is absolutely overdone here, since the ammo should not be that big of a factor. regarding the effectiveness of the 30 mm rounds: yeah, those things are just beasts. but they should be. what I think is maybe a liiiiiitle underpowered is the german "normal" 20 mm rounds, you know, the minengeschosse. compared to hispanos in game, they kind of are outperformed by them. don't know if that should be the case though. the russian 20 mm rounds seem to be alright
  10. it was me, I called you lucky since you got me twice, really fast - with what I consider to be luck. don't know how exactly that "starts" anything and why I should fear any repercussions for that. regarding your ban: I assume there is a story prior to that? I mean, I don't know you since I haven't played in quite a while (am only getting back a little since they fixed this overdue sound bug thing) but from what I red here, you don't exactly seem to be the most beloved member of the community. personally, I have had no business with you except for that "lucky incident" so that's that. btw, wrong thread, since it didnt happen on the DED server. here's the correct thread:
  11. I somewhat share that "feeling". Where it is very apparent that they wanted to show the lack of resources for late war german aircraft is the ammo count for the D9. honestly, I think its even kind of silly - as if they were running out of ammo indicators by the time the D9 got into production
  12. scenery and lighting is looking really, really fantastic. looking forward to this one!
