  1. We don't need anecdotal evidence of how "strong" the P-47 was there is really only the science of materials and construction methods all of which are available. We also have many anecdotes of R2800's legendary strength and damage resistance but few people can answer me what the difference is between an R2600 or even an R1830, ASh M82 or BMW 801, was it the 18 cylinder config vs 14 or 9 or the larger capacity better? some other 18 cylinder radials don't have the same reputation or is it just that there are more R2800 anecdotes ๐Ÿ˜Ž Perhaps we should look at why the P-47/Double Wasp should have their reputation with facts rather than anecdotes Cheers, Dakpilot
  2. Maybe worth a look at Intel XTU and HWbot Eplained in the vid above not exiting but persevere.. Very useful info Very useful to compare other people's settings and record/track your own, with the same hardware and the ability to adjust settings without millions of trips into the bios https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000006022/processors/processor-utilities-and-programs.html Cheers, Dakpilot
  3. Having flown and trained as part of multi crew ops in war zones I think you underestimate how well a team can function with practice and experience, when you fly and live together and your combined actions effect real outcomes. Communication and situational awareness moves to the next level when you gel (and train as a team.) perhaps not quite the same as friends deer hunting (not intended as belittling) Not entirely relevant to all of the above posts, but it is an interesting point, also a team that does not 'gel' can be at a big disadvantage regards efficiency, I have also flown in this situation and it is horrible Cheers, Dakpilot
  4. So what happens when you run at low res.. 720p or such And people will (if it benefits them) no matter how horrible it looks Cheers, Dakpilot
  5. How do you tell what settings are used before joining a server? Cheers, Dakpilot
  6. I don't really understand "pixel hunting" Spotting aircraft is hard IRL I have literally spent hundreds of tense hours scanning for aircraft, it IS hard and a learned skill that improved over my career. It should not be easy in the sim either. Cue cries of "harder isn't more real".. But easier is always more real either.. Just easy 25 k Spotting of fighters in any situation other than a very lucky glint of light on cockpit in very perfect conditions is totally unrealistic Seeing contacts at 40K and accepting this , seems to be an indication that many people want to play a different game than the Dev's are trying to produce. Suddenly expecting the issues of 2d monitors/screens to be resolved and expecting to be able to not use zoom seems very unreasonable, not the fact of wanting that, but just ignoring the reality of tech we have available to majority of users Cheers, Dakpilot
  7. Perhaps they need to sell some more new shiny aircraft to pay for the right guy Even so it has been explained several times by Dev's why this is such a hard proposition, and something they know about and would love to put time into Cheers, Dakpilot
  8. I hope they put the 3D modellers to work immediately to fix the netode That should go well Cheers, Dakpilot
  9. 49" LG 4k TV My evolution was 37" sony , Sharp Aquos 40" 1080p nd then the LG Cheers, Dakpilot
  10. Is not the big issue people are having with alternate is that you CAN see everyone at 40km and that is why people say it is unrealistic Too good is too good, not better? Cheers, Dakpilot
  11. The intent has already been mentioned by the Dev's, Li-2/DC-3 /C-47 as possible next project after Po-2 So hopefully... Cheers, Dakpilot
  12. As you know I have posted many times my R/L experiences re spotting, posted military studies and reports, and 90% of time have been told (usually quite rudely) I don't know what I am talking about, actually I don't even know why I am posting this it all seems so pointless ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜€ Cheers, Dakpilot
  13. Well I certainly don't want it to be just a game that is fun, there are many other games with that intention I find fun in the sim aspect, perhaps I am in the minority, but from the start it seemed like the Dev's and engineers strived for the best accuracy they could. Now totally unrealistic spotting distances as were reported in first patch are lauded as better because more fun Cheers, Dakpilot
  14. No just a bit rude... Even the most talented and experienced R/L pilots I have flown with sometimes overlook the obvious good CRM allows communication to bring results With the large amount of settings that can be changed it is easy to miss something Carry on Dakpilot
  15. Not always about hardware does your squadmate use the same game settings? Cheers, Dakpilot
