  1. I just noticed that forum member spudkopf has created authentic (swastika) skins for 4 of the 5 Bodenplatte aircraft. (Hopefully the 109 g14 will follow soon). The skins have to be downloaded individually, and so will need some time to put into the correct game folders. (I'm using JSGME and have organised them in the correct file structure to make it easy to switch them in/out, suggest that is best way) https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/44956-fw190d9-official-4k-skins-historically-corrected-default-skin-updated-06042019/ https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/45308-bf109k4-official-4k-skins-historically-corrected-updated-pm-080419/ https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/51768-fw190a8f8-official-4k-skins-historically-corrected/ https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/51669-me262a-official-4k-skins-historically-corrected/ Spudkopf has also created authentic skins for the 4k 109f2 and f4, available here: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/27620-4k-bf-109-f-2-template-download-and-4k-skins/ https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/51826-bf109f4-official-4k-skins-historically-corrected/
  2. Just discovered these skins. Without doubt the best il-2 skins I've seen. Thank you. Inspired to go and start an il-2 career now.
  3. 12. Spotter won't endlessly shout about the enemy; Is that what I think it is - the radio comms repeating over and over...? 😁
  4. yep...208MB update coming in. 208.99MB to be precise 😉
  5. Now that all Luftwaffe Bodenplatte aircraft are released, are there any plans to update this mod to give them authentic markings? Something I would love to see.
  6. Just had my first attempt at starting, taxing and taking off in the 262. A few issues early on with the engines. Got it together on the 3rd attempt. Taxiing was a little tricky using the brakes for steering. Nicely lined up on the runway...power....trying to keep her straight...barely reaching 190km/h... when I hit the end of the runway...panic....got the nose-wheel lifting and then hit gear up too soon before main wheels were in the air.......beautiful crash as I pancaked back on to the dirt, wheels off, left engine off, wing detached.... The 262 is a beaut. Really well done. Great cockpit too. Now to relocate to an airfield with a longer runway and try again.

    ME 262

    Direct from Jason in the 262 video with Requiem.
  8. Who is this 'Pearl Harbot' you speak of, and where was she when she was bombed?
  9. Love the Se5a and Albatros. Two favourites from Rise of Flight. But the most amazing aspect for me in this DD is the damaged buildings in Cologne. Looks amazing. And I do believe that is patterned wallpaper you can see on the interior wall of the wrecked building to the bottom right in the top screenshot....! (I'm serious..)
  10. Awesome video DD_Arthur - possibly the best il-2 BOS video I've ever seen.
  11. Recently I have had them abandon the chase and turn back - even though they were in a faster aircraft than mine. Seemed to happen just after crossing the front line too. Though before I got the pursuit all the way back to base too.

    Very excited by this. Looks fantastic!
  13. I've had situations where they seem to 'lose me' and where I've sneaked up on them. One time recently in campaign when a 109 was totally fixated on the plane he was pursuing in front and i was able to close really tightly on his 6. Yesterday in another campaign mission, where a Hs129 after initially manoeuvring to avoid me seemed to lose visual with me sitting (by sheer good fortune) in his 6 and I was able to close without him avoiding, get hits, then he immediately reacted. It was actually quite lifelike.
