  1. Same here, flyby goes bananas and keeps "restarting" over and over. At very close range too. ZOOM-ZOOM-ZOOM-ZOOM!!!
  2. I didn't even know you could have the crew fire weapons in Tank Crew. No honestly, not joking around here - I thought the crew members were just window dressing 😮
  3. P-51 has a cooler sounding engine. And that's that.
  4. Never seen it happen in-game. In real life you'd first need to penetrate the bomb's iron exterior and THEN set off a small explosion inside them. OR somehow trigger the bombs to go off by a lucky super special shot at the fuses. Could any of that have ever happened? Well, possibly. Have I ever heard about it? Nope.
  5. Any carrier action is most welcome
  6. New Guinea is a BLAST to fly over and operate in. I've spent a few hundred hours there (in P3D/ORBX), learning bush piloting the hard way. Them mountains are really high, the jungles are deep, the weather is scary...and those dirt strips man...so not for children. Yup, New Guinea is as macho as it gets. Would be the awesomest map ever if implemented for IL-2.
  7. I ran everything at max yesterday, had VSYNC and 4K activated. Barely any stutter at all at Novorossijsk, SOME stutter at Maikop.
  8. I'll just wait, can't be bothered with keys this swap that. I hope we get Moscow on Steam sometime this year
  9. It's hard work, man. And this Zetexy-guy is pretty much a pro

    Into the Void

    Nice feel to it. And we need more tankers, more drivable tanks and infantry. Did I say more tanks?
  11. Maybe later, it's not nearly user friendly right now. Will look it over when I have time though.
  12. Thanks for all the info! And maybe I'll try RO2 even if the focus is mostly on infantry, which in RO1 was pretty damn hectic...and nerve wrecking I mean even if they still got just a few tanks in RO2 - they oughta be just as good or better than in RO1. And RO1 was awesome, for example: guys were always placing their tanks facing the enemy at an angle...'cause that really mattered!
  13. @Elem: Right on! I curse myself for forgetting about Red Orchestra! I've only played the first game (very long ago) but the tank warfare was just plain AWESOME there. I curse myself again! Thanks for the refreshing reminder, might just have to look at RO2 now
  14. Hey, thanks for the tip! I had a good look on it now - not too bad but it seems it's got very mixed reviews. Graphics look acceptable but if I read the reviews it seems like it's a half-finished product (again) that didn't really hit home. Something about the AI being very dumb/scripted only and then the singleplayer part didn't really amount to anything more than 6 missions per tank (=12 in total). Of course there is always the mission editor, but from what I've found out it's pretty much like the BOS-mission editor: Not made for humans. Oh, and no manual for it either. Of course Anyways, appreciate the info.
  15. For the record: I've checked out a lot of other tank sims on youtube today and sweet Jesus they look crappy (they all pretty much have a name beginning with "Steel"). The visuals are lame, the feel of riding in a tank is non-existent, the sounds, the guns...when you fire them the tanks hardly shake at all. And there's icons everywhere on the screens, like in children's games. Yeah, it's like they were all made in 2003 or something. There's obviously a need for a new tank-sim. I for one just can't find anything on youtube that has the same level of BOOM! as this "just for fun"-project in BOS. If anyone can spot a cool looking and sounding tank sim (WWII preferably) please do me a favour and post a youtube vid of it. I know it can be hard to judge on what's cool or not, but use my latest test drive of the mission editor for it. It really bothers me that this BOS-tank stuff is put together in a lighthearted manner, merely for [censored] and giggles...and yet the BOS-tanks outshine the "serious" competition by miles! Or am I crazy stating this? Have I finally lost it?
  16. Kuban or Kursk? Why not both? Call it "1943". Two maps. Done deal, I buy! Ps I wanna fly the Henschel Hs 129. Oh and some mission with the specialist female pilots of the Night Witches.
  17. The P40 is deadly as hell if it gets on your tail. And it usually stays there (seems to handle low speeds fairly well). AI was set to Ace, but I had only half a tank of gas. That matters a LOT.I'm glad you liked my video BTW, thanks
  18. It is dependant on how much you bank. Same thing goes for the nose gunner in the Heinkel. Well, pretty much any aircraft with a gunner. You gotta level out a bit, THEN they start blasting. Watch after 4:00 in this vid and you'll see my frustration (I only understood the banking thing a few days later)
  19. I know this is an offshoot or whatever it's called but hey, tanks are cool! And they have big guns. Big guns go BOOM! Targets go BOOM! I happy, I break them!
  20. I tried 8 Heinkels, it turned into a slideshow
  21. Stable at 400-450kph? Jeeesus. I haven't even been there, in those speeds I mean. Thanks for the info Oh and about them boats, who knows? I bet the germans only let the Stukas do attacks according to their regulations
  22. Yup, running on ultra or low just don't mean a thing to my rig. Well, maybe a difference in 3-4FPS(!). But if I untick HDR and SSAO I can really notice the performace increase. Another way I improved perfomance was to overclock my CPUs, put my CPU-fans on ultra (and boy, do the fans have to work hard) and strangely enough I changed my general settings for my Nvidia card to balanced between performance and quality. That worked! But I think it's pretty damn strange that if I turn down/off everything, I still only get 45 FPS. I don't have my rigs specs but it produces silky smooth framerates in Rise of Flight and DCS. WITH HIGH SETTINGS.
  23. Hey Gruber, that tankbusting video was very good! Solid flying, right there! I think that's probably the way it should be done (and most likely WAS done), although nerves of steel are required. And skill. And time, all that swooping up and down. About them boats, I've done the same thing but funny as it may seem, you come in from a high altitude (which again is correct, it's a DIVEBOMBER) whilst I just love the groundhogging approach. Maybe I should get me a Henschel 129 But to reflect on your approach on the boats, you get TWO boats in ONE approach. Ain't bad.
