  1. Not saying I don't want the map, far from it. I will be flying over it from day one, but the single player folks will be voicing their, umm... concerns, shall we say, about it. Like I said earlier, it will be interesting to see how the team deals with the aftermath of the largest amphibious operation ever attempted.
  2. That is going to be tough, any flying over Normandy in a CAS role will still reveal just a barren, lifeless landscape, which works for the steppe of Mother Russia, but will be totally unacceptable over the densely populated battlefield that was Normandy in the summer of 1944.
  3. Indeed. The game engine is incapable of running anything remotely close to the numbers of ships, trucks, tanks, and aircraft it would take to depict the D Day landings. It will be interesting to see how they deal with this.
  4. Meh, my install in 103GB. Lots of skins.
  5. No idea, they want to improve it is all anyone knows. Perhaps they want to make it more layered, or dynamic?
  6. It's the high level graphic depiction of the sky.
  7. I'm not here to justify anything, I was merely explaining what happened, in all likely hood. I have a suspicion that some fans of certain aircraft are trying to turn this into a "Spitfire uber, 109 nerfed" conspiracy thread, which it most certainly is not. I see that your nom d' guerre is entirely fitting, BTW.
  8. As I said in my post earlier. The visual damage does not match actual damage as seen by the game engine. It happens frequently.
  9. Indeed, but it's not an issue specific to the Spitfire.
  10. And, as often happens, it could be a case of the visual damage not matching the damage registered by the program.
  11. My troll detector has painted a new target.
  12. The Mustang behaves like it always has. What are you on about?
  13. Gents, as we all know, there is no such thing as a free lunch. This is one of the prices to be paid for the ever increasing fidelity, both visual and physics modeling wise, in the sim. 4K textures, beautiful landscapes, realistic clouds, hyper detailed, well, everything, comes at a price. Combat flight simulation has always pushed the envelope of what home PCs are capable of. It was as true in the original IL2 as it is today. Remember the "Black Death" track? It would grind even the best PCs of the day to a near halt. Everything in a modern PC gaming title is a compromise, and as ever, eye candy wins over some operational features for the vast majority who play.
