  1. Not going to lie, I basically gave up on this sim for the most part because it was just not satisfying to play for me due to the difficulty in seeing other planes. Did a quick mission last night and the combination of 8x AA and the new spotting was really superb. Spotting other airplanes still requires effort and skill, as it should, but it seems much more reasonable now. Can't put my finger on what is different (contrast?), but I like it. Well done!
  2. This right here is when I'm going to keep my mouth shut, where a younger MattS would have made an inappropriate metaphor involving household dècor.
  3. "P-39L, The submissive's choice"
  4. Same here. All of this stuff is very subjective; the only sensible approach is to try it with our own machines and our own dilapidated eyeballs and see what works better for us.
  5. Here's the thread I was remembering...not sure how it played out:
  6. Can somebody give me an opinion on the FM changes made to the P-47s?
  7. It did happen to a P-47 pilot (Robert Johnson maybe?). Can't imagine it was common!
  8. Ok, thanks...perhaps that is a change? I remember an ancient thread on here where someone thought the model of the P-40 was displayed at a different size but it turned out to be because the range displayed was in miles. Or I could be losing my mind 🤣
  9. You can change it - click the wrench. The distance I believe depends on which units you have selected in the options. km or miles I believe.
  10. Haha, yeah they suck. I know that they're not real but I still hate them to a remarkable degree.
  11. You'll notice that our AI friends don't seem to have the same level of difficulty getting out of their damaged airplanes. The degree to which this game plays favorites with the AI is a Goddamned disgrace.
  12. Personally I find the HDR to improve my ability to see the bad guys on my machine, particularly against ground clutter. I haven't done a bunch of controlled experiments, simply have played it both ways enough to have a preference. I also have SSAO selected but can't tell if that matters or not.
  13. True disappointment requires hope 🤣
  14. Haha yeah my buddy flew P-3 Orions for the Navy and has a good story about let's call it an "extremely aggressive approach and landing" precipitated by a case of the S.O.S. (Sudden Onset Shits).
