  1. Think of it as a cooling down period rather than the gamey term of recharging. WEP is not a continuous power setting Cheers, Dakpilot
  2. Nope, restricted to certain time before engine damage , engines don't heal themselves after damage, Cheers, Dakpilot
  3. I think it will rather be making use of multiple internet connections ๐Ÿ˜Ž Cheers, Dakpilot
  4. Thought diesel fuel in T-34 was an advantage.? Cheers, Dakpilot
  5. Maybe next patch has something Check today's DD Cheers, Dakpilot
  6. 12.7 vs 7.62 looks a bit of an optical illusion.. Sure that's not a 20mm? Cheers, Dakpilot
  7. The film is pretty much non Hollywood Made in Britain, British writer /director British producers, British cinematographer, written from directors grandfather's memoirs, US distributor. I think it is fair to say it was a British production Think you are barking up the wrong tree Cheers, Dakpilot
  8. There are no Yak's or Lagg's of period correct type for Moscow campaign, was always hoping for release of early types to fit.. Cheers, Dakpilot
  9. Well it is the hottest day of the year so far here, about 33 c and muggy, good day for some benchmarks/testing Ran valley for about 30 mins to get things warmed up properly and did the run. Max peak temp of 6 1C with a quick cool down to 40C, no downclocking of gpu stable at stock 1974mzh and 5500. This was with standard fan curve and radiator fans were pretty much silent. CPU fans had spooled up a bit and after the run temps were low 40's, fan noise was acceptable and silent from a couple of paces. (@ 5ghz) Pump is silent and vrm fan not audible, I had planned on putting a noctua fan on the gpu but now seems redundant Overall the changing of pump and cooler and installation of kraken G12 was very straightforward with no issues and I highly recommend. With adjustment to fan speess/curves and fine tuning am sure there is room for improvement and headroom for some gpu overclock Overall I achieved what I wanted (cooling and quiet) and am very happy, it also looks nice which is a bonus Cheers, Dakpilot
  10. A lot of people thought it impossible for this "engine' to extend view distance to 150km and still have playable frame rate, same goes for 10k bubble Defered rendering may well open up some big recourse savings.. I cannot say. But for sure it has been proved several times that updates to the engine have produced reaults that were perceived as previously not possible, there was recently a change to multithreading usage for certain tasks which could bring huge impact if expanded further, Was the update to 64 bit and DX11 an update or a 'new engine'? Those updates were certainly game changing on my previous system DX12 /Vulkan new rendering and more multithreading of AI and other processes could yield huge improvement for new features Jason has said before that an iterative approach is safer so expect updates, rather than people always saying the game engine is finished and needs changing and we should expect a 'new one' Cheers, Dakpilot
  11. With the non steam version it is possible to copy paste the whole folder as per original IL-2, If you have good Internet it is easy to just download latest version from this site if lost in computer crash, Cheers, Dakpilot
  12. Technical issues and bug reports Autopilot and AI section Cheers, Dakpilot
  13. I am lazy, and we are indeed spoiled by tech today, however your magic electronic E6B will go wrong or the battery's will go flat at the most inopportune time! I had a double GPS failure (we always had two mounted for redundancy) No prob the trusty (and tested) back up hand GPS is always in the flight bag... Which also failed All this over Sudan during the civil war on the wrong side of the lines with isolated thunderstorms and fuel critical Not the best time to dig out the E6B, map and protractor. Anyway bit off topic, but if it can go wrong, it will! Anyway at least write down the pesky formulas somwhere handy ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜€ Cheers, Dakpilot
  14. Also quite handy in an emergency when your rudder drops off ๐Ÿ˜Ž Cheers, Dakpilot
