  1. These are really nice, thanks for the hard work
  2. Very impressed by the photo's of the 262, like the aircraft in the museum at RAF Cosford it has the 'beaten panel' look of the aircraft of that era. Well done
  3. Very interesting, and not to disagree, I notice Eric 'Winkle' Brown almost always commented in his articles that the brakes on German aircraft were poor. I cannot for the life of me think why that was 'generally' the case, all the excellent engineering and then your hard pressed to stop it. I could see that it could hold the brakes from start, but no idea why the either wore down quickly or the system was just not that strong from high speed. I'll have to have a try myself,thanks for posting
  4. DORA! FANTASTIC, First flight 100 % kills, landing......do we have to go over that! GREAT FUN thank you
  5. Tempest!! When? How muc....forget that, take my money!
  6. Excellent news as always, that unpainted 262 looks great. We're getting a Mossie! I'd forgotten, thanks. Heresy I know, but the tanks make me want to get a Helicopter just to follow them. You don't get much opportunity to sightsee when your trying to shoot them up. Looking forward to this year. Thanks to all for their hard work
  7. Happy New Year to all the team and thank you for your efforts, see you next year photos are excellent
  8. I must admit one of the reasons I bought the Moscow campaign, was so that I could fly round Moscow. Having been so impressed with the Stalingrad area I thought they might do the same. I understand the reasoning behind it and it would probably be a waste of resources, but it would have been very interesting. Still a brilliant sim regardless
  9. Glad to find this thread, I gave up crashing this ages back, will have a go again now, thanks to all
  10. So happy with these skins thanks to everyone. Never a need to apologise for a skin being late.....its a skill I just don't have. Quick request, I'm sure we all remember the REVELL P=47 with the black and white cowling....I'm going back to 1960's, The box art had the aircraft in front aspect as it lifted off...so it was just engine, checkerboards. My big brother built it, he was really good at that....I played with it and trashed it....but I was little, so I survived. Anyone know the skin? No worries if not. Respect to all skinners
  11. Hi Guys, Been away getting parts of my body fixed, Thanks for the comments, some great some not, I was just asking. By the way I am military vet, almost 30 years service, decorated 3 times, so no I've never done anything of note and don't expect instant rewards. (But I served alongside hero's) It was just a game question, no big deal , I love the one to close my eyes at the end, haha I'll do that thanks. Enjoy the game everyone & thanks again to the Dev's for a brilliant sim
  12. I love this Sim, BUT, I don't have load of time to play. So I do a quick mission, I blast away, usuall 4 x 2 enemy aircraft, say Heinkels and Ju.87, I love the Aircobra, Excellent results if you can hit them right, however, regardless of aircraft, I just can't win. Could we alter the scoring model please? I knock down 3, may be 4, and thenI 'TARAN' That one that was getting away, (TARAN, The honourable art of hitting the invader with your own aircraft, and hope you have enough time/height to bale out) Not always successful.... So....Failed. .....even if I almost sacrifised myself..really! Come on, I gave it my best shot, AND no one ever really got 100% on each mission. Could we make it say 60%.....hit/damage/destroy/divert/cheese off, 60% of the opposition...SUCCESS.! PLEASE. Been meaning to ask for this for ages. Wonderful sim, I really lose myself in this if I've had a 'bad day' at work! Thank yo for your efforts, and no hard feelings if it cannot be done Fllyingscotsman
  13. Yep it looks fast, I wonder how many of us will have a fire on take off when we get started, lol
  14. I do have a steam a/c, but not bought any of the IL-2 Products that way. So I'll continue to give you my money, you can keep what you deserve for your hard work, and Steam can run alongside for other games. I also get ALL of your excellent content when offered Thanks for the invite, no thank you Steam
  15. Regarding 4k, Jason also advised else where to take off Vsync, I did that but got the stutter back, so did not work for me, but that's not to say that will all our different setup's it will work for others, so for me 4K Textures is the way to go for the moment, Respect to the dev's a fine upgrade, gremlins.....they will always be the bane of the development teams.
  16. micro stutter earlier mainly with the P39 & Bf-110, IMHO could it be the size of the aircraft cockpit frames. Anyway, reduced the visual distance by one set and clicked 4k textures, using 1920 x 1080 full screen, and it's much more pleasant. Will play with V sync tomorrow, Too busy having a blast. Bought the Bf-109 G6, for test purposes....it had a wee stutter too. Intel GA Z270-hdep, Motherboard, Intel core i5 7500 3.4ghz series 7, 16gb Vulcan DDR4-3000, nVIDIA gtx 1050 Graphics card. Hope this helps
  17. My Thanks to BDS Prody who mentioned the 4k textures, I had the problem, mainly with the P-39 & BF110, IMHO could be the greater size of cockpit frames, that don't help much, but I reduced the distance viewable by 1 set, and clicked 4k Textures, thats certianly better for me. I'm sure the dev's are working on it, but thoroughly enjoying their efforts, thank you
  18. Love the update, love the rain effect, It came as a big LOL moment because I jumped in and flew before reading......ok so we never grow up, just wanna play. Great job, got stutter when viewing aircraft from my cockpit, will fiddle a bit as per the other post but yes, happy to give the devs time to patch it, big thank you to the team, just had to get the G6, for test purposes you understand ha ha
  19. Brilliant Thank you. Just tried the P-39 against He-111, 4th & 5th cannon shot tore the wing off, very impressed. 109G-4 against A-20, best result with attack from side and rake it as soon as wingtips in sight, get across to the other side as quickly as possible to see if they all get out. Did 3 stern attacks...100% failure , got hammered & took up gliding! Just had those 15 mins and well impressed, THANK YOU, Dev’s
  20. That P-39 cockpit looks so realistic, have just read one of the books by the soviet Ace's who found the P-39 very robust and talks of kills against Fw 190 's. I found it twitchy in the original IL-2 but once I got the hang of it I thought it was brilliant. Couple of weeks, no problem Re the noisy cockpit, Astronaut Frank Borman has an article where he states it's really noisy because the engine is right behind you. I was reminded in the clip more of the some of the old diesel trains we had in the uk, more of the clatter part, than the whine, but that sure is noisy
  21. The 262 was shot down on occasion, I recall some guncam footage, but you have to catch the pilot unawares and from above...your only chance to catch it. The allies started sending fighters to cover the bases it operated from, so as to get it on landing. Walter Nowotny was a famous ace killed this way, Gridiron is right the early jet engines were tempremantal and poor metal quality caused all sorts of problems. I hope though that the team keep to the a/c specs, Other sims with the 262 have the P51 pulling away! On that note, I find it a pain that whatever I'm flying, is not as fast as the opposition. Regardless of which a/c or side you chose. I hope that won't be the case here. Looking forward to it
