  1. Here is the issue. Thanks to ala.rota.Emistico for the pictures and the bug report: (The shine/white effect can be seen from many thousands of meters altitude, much higher than shown here)
  2. I will try to make this evening. 56RAF_Talisman
  3. Server would not allow me to join EU time, so flew WW2 with a squad mate on Combat Box instead. Thanks for trying. Better luck next week. Happy landings, 56RAF_Talisman
  4. You can spot British camouflage aircraft easier than German, so flying German makes spotting easier: Aircraft LOD values appear different comparing, for example, British camouflage on Mustang, Spitfire and Tempest when compared to the Bf 109 and the FW 190. This makes the British camouflage shine bright (white) in a different way to the Bf 109 and FW 190 camouflage. As a result, the British camouflage stands out highly visible from distance at certain angles from the sun in a way that the German aircraft don't. German aircraft are much darker and harder to see. Surely this makes no sense and provides one side with an advantage over the other. I hope the developers can fix this. Happy landings, 56RAF_Talisman

  6. I will be punching holes in the virtual sky this evening for the Thursday night fly-in, European time zone Meeting up with Waggaz on the official BoS ts3 server. Happy for folks to join us if you can. 56RAF_Talisman

  8. Maybe most of us don't use discord; hate the thing and won't touch it. Happy landings, 56RAF_Talisman
  9. Exactly! Thank you Macro, I have noticed this a lot in Combat Box and other servers. Happy landings, 56RAF_Talisman
  10. You bet 👍 next Thursday. Nice flying with you Waggaz. Lets go for a 56 RFC outfit folks, even if it's on a casual get together basis to start with. So far there are two of us, me and Waggaz, so is anyone else willing to give it a try and meet up on a Thursday 20.00. hrs for a run out in the old square face (but beautiful) SE5a. Happy landings, 56RAF_Talisman
  11. My squad and everyone I fly with can see there is a problem. I use VR, but most I fly with don't and have a wide variety of PC's, monitors and graphics cards. Thanks Schwengber, I am afraid I can't make and post video; very kind of you. Happy landings, 56RAF_Talisman Thanks CountZero, I have not checked out VVS and other aircraft, but I am not surprised that you have found this. Happy landings, 56RAF_Talisman
  12. This effect is not subtle and as soon as one realises it is only certain aircraft it appears outrageous, lol. I agree with you though, but I can't make and post video. It is so obvious though if one sets up a QMB, 8 x Tempest vs 8 x Bf 109 or FW 190, in 'Realistic' view particularly. Please, I don't want this thread to get diverted to be about spotting as such, so please try and keep to the topic which is about the effect of the sun in terms of reflective shine on British camouflaged aircraft in comparison to German camouflaged aircraft. I would not want this specific thread to get swallowed up in the general debate about aircraft spotting. Thanks. 56RAF_Talisman
  13. I find it a big irritation in the Spitfire that the dev's have not allowed us to bind a key for the fuel tank button press, so that I can properly check the fuel gauge. For me, this is a huge oversight to say the least. This issue frustrates me every time I fly the Spitfire, especially when on MP and our CO askes for a squad fuel check and none of us can simply press the fuel check button Come on dev's, please give us this fundamental functionality. Look long enough and you lose your place in the squad formation or get bounced We need to be able to bind a key to physically press to work the fuel gauge. Having to stare at the bloody thing and wait is mad!
  14. Spitfire XIV also supported Normandy landings and was over Europe to prepare for D-Day and over the English Channel targeting FW 190 hit and run raids. Operations over France and Holland from May 1944, first combat with FW 190 over English Channel May 1944, operations over France, Holland and Germany with 150 Octane fuel September and October 1944. Happy landings, 56RAF_Talisman
  15. I think that is 02.00. hrs early Friday morning for me, LOL. Now I understand why I see so few folks flying on a Thursday evening over here. Will give it a go at 20.00. hrs my local time anyway. 56RAF_Talisman
