    Tactical Air War

    Looking forward to the changes/updates!

    Great campaign even though there were major patch struggles. Arguably the most balanced one since a very very long time. Respect to every Pilot who kept flying despite having a nice streak going.

    Historical planeset for TAW

    This is not a good idea because it completely contradicts the idea of limiting the availability of rare/powerful aircraft. In your example, you will never run out of La5 FNs or G-14s.

    Certain pilots are just notorious warper. Not that they can do much about it or are at fault but their ping and maybe the netcode makes warping an issue.

    TAW is not a beginner friendly server nor is it intended to be one. If you are still new to the game you can practice on other servers (mainly berloga, knights of the air and wings of liberty). The Player count can not be increased.

    DM Test: P-47 vs 37mm and 20mm Flak

    Do we have any knowledge on how flak is affecting the DM and how the ballistic test was conducted in the ADA report? Did they use the aircraft armament to do the test? The shells might be close in values but that doesn't necessarily mean that they are close in performance in the game too.

    Which DM do you like more - before 3.008 or after?

    Bringing in tanks in this discussion makes no sense. They aren't a finished product yet and i am sure they will do a lot of adjustments in the near future. I am sure they are aware of the issues.

    I think that my sources and bug report contradict that the results are believable, that is all. I totally understand that you are short handed on people working on the product and that money is probably tight too, really, i do. All people want when making a bug report or trying to bring an issue to your knowledge is something along the lines of "yeah you are right and we are going to adjust it but currently we don't have time but it is on the list" as long as the report is correct. They don't go through all the trouble to try to piss you off.

    Hey man, i really did not intend to insult you or anything. I am really trying to be civil about all of this but criticism is still allowed no? Concerning the different conclusions, i think you are aware of my bug report in my signature. You can also check out: - Rapid Fire: the Development of Automatic Cannon, Heavy Machine Guns and their Ammunition for Armies, Navies and Air Forces - Flying Guns: Development of Aircraft Guns, Ammunition and Installations Like i said already, i have no issue admitting when i am wrong if that's the case. As of right now, i have absolutely now idea on what the 20mm HE values are based upon. It is nothing game breaking and neither will it stop me from enjoying the game but i still considered it as wrongly modelled. Cheers.

    Is it a game breaking issue? definitely not. But i think it is a field that can get improved with relatively low effort in comparison to let's say increasing the render range of aircrafts. You will probably never be in the majority with these issues, simply because most people don't really care or can't be bothered to do the research on it. This is fine of course but that also does not mean that the issue isn't there. If my use of language offended you i apologize, it wasn't intended. I am not certain if this is directed at me but i never got any explanation concerning the DM. Especially why the 20mm Hispano HE is performing as it is compared to the other two 20mm HE shells. I have absolutely no issue with admitting i am wrong when it is the case, but i do wonder why all research papers that i am aware of are coming to the same different conclusion. I am not saying that i am entitled to anything but it would probably be helpful to stop a lot of people from being uninformed and repeating erroneous things over and over. Thank you for engaging in a discussion, especially when it is probably in your spare time.

    And i am one of the people thinking the DM is great, especially when compared to other flight sims. Considering that we "talked" about this a couple of days back, you should be aware of the fact that i appreciate all of the work you guys are putting in, especially when considering how difficult the flight sim market is. So no need to be passive aggressive. That being said, i am still of the opinion that the DM needs quite a lot of work and is one of the biggest issues in the game currently. Looking at the quantity of threads concerning the DM, especially after the update, i don't think i am all alone.

    quote me where i said they are? i am just stating facts.

    @7./JG26_Smokejumper you know i have no quarrels with you. That being said, i find it bad taste to (continuously) jump into other MP Server Threads to promote your campaign. If it is as great as you claim it to be, let it speak for itself.

    Honestly, who knows? The devs refuse to give any meaningful insight on the damage model. It is either not possible to adjust the values accordingly or they think that the values are correct according to their, I hate to say it, secret documents/calculations.

    Asking for correctly modelled mineshells, which btw are used by roughly 50% of all aircrafts in the game, is hardly asking for an overcomplicated damage model. I think modelling the mineshell in a simplistic way wouldn't be much more complicated than AP or HE. Even if it is a lot more complicated, which might be very well the case, it is necessary in my eyes, because simply adjusting the HE values for it obviously doesn't work. Even when you don't consider the unrealistic damage depiction (shrapnel focused). Imagine the outrage if something similar would be the case with the flight model. A good combat flight sim depends on a good DM as much as on a good FM. I can't emphesize this enough.
