    The K-4 Isn't Special

    I wish there was a facepalm reaction emoji 😎 Cheers, Dakpilot

    The K-4 Isn't Special

    Yes you are... If misunderstanding how things work is doing it right, LOL Simply fly axis aircraft at max continuous power setting and you will be able to fly all day without overheat or damage Cheers, Dakpilot

    Engine rev's destroying motor is historically wrong

    Am pretty sure it would be more than just the ground crew, and it would not just be unquotable phrases when (as per usual 'gameplay') the entire squadron would be grounded for engine changes 😎 Cheers, Dakpilot
  4. Fairly common for pilots to spend a few years flying right seat with left hand on throttle and right on yoke to then get command and transition to left hand on yoke and right hand on throttle Cheers, Dakpilot

    Realism of zoom

    I understand the intention of a level playing field... But to restrict every one with the eyesight of a myopic rhinoceros seems a bit extreme when 'expert' servers aim to give a more realistic experience.. Cheers, Dakpilot
  6. I never looked back after getting a closed loop watercooler, simple to install and has worked flawlessly for many years, as far as bang for buck re over clock head room it's cost was trivial compared to upgrade to get a similar boost in performance. The software that came with it made controlling/monitoring temps very intuitive and easy. Was a now outdated H100i. Advantage also is it will be transferable with CPU upgrades, my now ancient 3570k has run at 4.45 ghz for years Cheers, Dakpilot
  7. Get a 1080 and overclock that CPU I have used the motherboard software to 'one click' overclock to 4.4 ghz, 24 hour 365 days stable, it does not have to be intimidating. Later you could upgrade the CPU and MB, a 1080 I find quite adequate, (and prices are coming down right now) also my old 3570k copes well at higher frequency. I upgraded from 970 to 1080 and found good improvements (see sig) Currently you are more limited by GPU especially as there is more performance available from your current CPU Cheers, Dakpilot

    AI Constantly Turning

    Why repost this "And how can you still support the game when there are no AI changes planned like forever? The devs made it clear at some point that there will be no AI overhaul because they are not willing to pay for a dedicated AI guy. It seems they think it is not worth the money and that they should focus on new content to keep the money flow" Clearly BS and breaking forum rules Cheers, Dakpilot

    Any possibility of future add of Fieseler storch?

    Where would one look at sales figures for Ju-52? Cheers, Dakpilot

    Things I'd like to see fixed/added in BOBP

    Drop tanks and improvements to detail of fuel system have been mentioned by Devs a number of times to be on 'the list' Whether they should be ahead of net code, AI, Career, more detailed FM etc.. etc. - All mentioned and acknowledged by Dev's - depends on ones personal opinions/preferences. Better to put suggestions in the suggestions section and complaints in the complaints section. A read through all the patch release notes will give an indication of how many bug fixes and new features that have been added in the '60 months' of development. Seriously read through the patch notes in announcements section and see how far things have come since that lonely unarmed Lagg-3 over a bleak Lapino map. The competition has come up with a single map and a handful (barely) of aircraft in the same period, give the devs a bit of a break for what they have achieved Cheers, Dakpilot

    Developer Diary 200 - Discussion

    Under Settings - Game- Map scenery distance What does this influence compared to Settings - Graphics - Horizon draw distance I never really looked Into it properly To question the above mention of Sherman and T-34, I thought T-34 was diesel engined and the lend lease Shermans sent to Russia were also diesel versions, I thought this made them much less susceptible to fires than petrol engined tanks. Cheers, Dakpilot

    Realism of zoom

    As far as I remember when in full zoom, normal eyesight is represented, we just cannot have the correct wide field of view with that detail due to hardware limitations. So I don't really see it as any form of cheating, when 'zoomed out' to give a reasonable field of view we are restricted compared to RL Cheers, Dakpilot

    Tank crew download size

    If you already have any modules it is already there, if currently updated. Buying it will just unlock the content Cheers, Dakpilot

    If you mean that a turtle would reach geriatric age during development I think you are on point. Movement of a geriatric turtle would seem speedy in comparison Cheers, Dakpilot
