  1. Same here, I know why, it is because I find them so beautiful. I find a Zero more beautiful than a spitfire or a mustang. My favorite is by far the D3A Val

  4. Excellent news. Keep up the good work , thanks for this update. By the way I am the only one to have thought "Is it playable?" ? when seing the Willis jeep.
  5. This duo on the same plane is priceless Take a look some precise moment here ;I set those videos on to be played on a precise time And of course the video with the U2
  6. I up-vote your up-vote for up-voting the sentence. I believe we have got a lot of answers in this post, I am convinced that this is a mix of all the reasons you all guys said. The world is changing so quickly nowadays. I Loved the old Il2, for me, it was a good balance of realism and fun gameplay. We have a much better sim now, but not the same "easy" game-play @PatrickAWlson @JimTM @Eisenfaustus Added not new new gameplay for bombers with missing functionalities or just not fun to use them in mp. @Feathered_IV @Sokol1 @Leifr @LuseKofte Added no tutorial in Il2GB Luckily , the U2 is good for beginner @15[Span.]/JG51Spartan Added the fact that people prefer to interact with screens more that interact with real people @Plank Added the fact that WW2 is more old now there is less veterans @Mysticpuma @Trooper117 Added it is an expensive hobby @=362nd_FS=RoflSeal@angus26 Added toxicity from some sick people feeling their have power on internet @Vig Added people are seeking for instant gratification and rewards @Legioneod @LF_Gallahad @Hanu Added that we feel less emotions because of the high realism @Pudu @unreasonable @Vig Added less interest in aviation, @Cunctator Added People less involved flying together @=362nd_FS=Hiromachi Added in some countries, Civilian sim is booming, but not combat sim @69th_Ustio Added bad business model @Rolling_Thunder Sorry If I missed some of you, It is a huge work to summarize.
  7. @Motherbrain Are you reading my mind? Most of what your fantasies are mine. Especially Bob and combined arms. I trully believe IL2 GB will never really be IL2"GB" without the Great Battle of Britain. For me, the future of gaming in this kind of sim is combined arms. Being able to ride on a bike with a mg42 should be fun! Using Kar98k and Mosin Nagant as well! Being able to control tank is a major step in this direction for me.
  8. I am wasting my time? Ok it seems obviously we are not able to communicate efficiently. You use a value judgement currently, so I can do the same by stating seeing expectations as "ridiculous" is ridiculous. I got what @Feathered_IV wanted to say. we all stated our opinions , I leave it here with you. I feel this is one of the reason, with the one @angus26 said, and of course others people. I sincerely hope for the best in the future for our community (more players) and our franchise (more functionalities)
  9. It is not about expectation, it is find ways to improve this game in terms of gameplay so more pilot will fly bombers . If it is "ridiculous" as you said, then explain me why devs added many new functionalities for fighter like advanced gunsight, advanced flight model to handle high speed, paratroops... The devs surprised us many times by adding new "ridiculous" functionalities that are only useful for a few aircraft. Without even talking about "ridiculous" functionalities for tank crew to come. I am glad they are doing "ridiculous" things, that is why I love and support their work.
  10. @LukeFF, Yes, but I was talking about gunsight and ready to move. On Bos it takes Two command input and wait some time which the turret moves into to the neutral position.
  11. Not expecting that sort of functionality in a game with bombers is ridiculous (I am not talking about adding b17) @Feathered_IV is talking about improving bomber gameplay so more players will use them. Is this ridiculous? to those who are not dedicated bombers pilot, it is I guess. Of course! This is just my opinion, being a dedicated bomber pilot in the old Il2, but not on Bos because of this and anti aircraft guns too deadly. To be clear, we are talking about that specific gameplay, which has to be done 1 time , and is generic for all bombers. (from Feathered_IV)
  12. I am sure he was talking about: B17 the mighty 8th The reference for true bomber gameplay. Never beaten https://store.steampowered.com/app/328900/B17_Flying_Fortress_The_Mighty_8th/
  13. @Reckoner_ Have you played the old IL2? for me the handling of gunner stations should be exactly as it was there. In addition of what you just said of course (switching gun from the same station) here is the gameplay I am talking about . It looks "gamey" but it is how it should be: Instantly look on gunsight No rotation speed restriction (except for motorized gun stations)
  14. Yes indeed, when you fly bomber , it is basically a grind with no pleasure. Yes, I totally agree In the old Il2, I was a bomber pilot , I enjoyed it so much What i liked with the old il2 is that the gunners handling was just right. Too much "realism" made using gunner position a grind. It looks more realistic, but it is obviously bad in terms of gameplay & handling This plus the fact that ia gunners spot enemy fighters at 1200 meters whereas human can spot bombers at 5 km. In addition, no new crew function you described so well @Feathered_IV Luckily I can do transport with my beloved Junkers 52
  15. In my opinion , this is explained by the clunky controls of gunners. What i liked with the old il2 is that the gunners handling was just right. Too much "realism" made using gunner position a grind. It looks more realistic, but it is obviously bad in terms of gameplay & handling (what is your opinion about that @Feathered_IV?) This plus the fact that ia gunners spot enemy fighters at 1200 meters whereas human can spot bombers at 5 km.
