Am downloading now so haven't tested but being able to speed up time by only 2x in campaign mode seems more than a little questionable.

S!

 

 So that is why the game crashed in middle of a mission! Succesfull Escort mission in a Yak-1 with 2 kills, just about to land and crashed game. DL is slow as heck..

Groan. I have to ask if the plan is not to provide a pay for bonus exp model (pay to play better model) why so desperately try to turn off autopilot in campaign mode and reduce time speed increase from 16x to a 2x limit. This is starting to smell like Clod 2.0

I'm more concerned about the aim helper, and oh how I wish I can turn it off on its own even in normal difficulty.

 

Why? Because it sounds like a target lead reticule, which pretty much takes away all the fun out of deflection shooting. Maybe I'm wrong, but if not then I guess I'll be flying with HUD off pretty soon (I like being able to use external cameras).

 

That said, I wouldn't be surprised if they added custom mode for campaign soon. There's already an incentive to use normal or expert, since custom rewards no XP. But for those of us who don't care about the unlocks, custom mode would be an appealing way to fly the campaign with our own settings.

Zak said that RCTRL+I turns aim helper off.

 

Custom difficulty options would be really nice.

Yes I've been completely put off. All I want is to fly multiplayer but I've been put off doing so because of having to be forced to do an activity I do not enjoy. I'll give you one experience I had today. 

 

I flew the expert mode campaign on a long mission today. Took 20 minutes of my time to only get shot down and received zero reward. Well isn't that just great. What a waste of my time.

 

There isn't any immersion either, with this mechanic blatantly flashing in front of my face.

 

Edit (Update):

 

A mate of mine has spent an hour and a half trying to get experience and has received none because of four in a row failed missions. What fun.

Wow.

I feel so... patronised? Thanks for telling me exactly how to play this game. I always wanted to be told how to play a flight simulator.

Time to take a break and begin a crusade advising folk not to buy Stalingrad! ;)

You will play single player using only x2 time compression and you will love it!

Good news, I was waiting for some sensible action like this. Ladies, this is a bloody flight sim, it's for flying. If you spend 20 minutes doing so and you get shot down at the end then that's just the way it goes. Must have happened to a lot of the real pilots too, so how's that for simulation.

Sorry, I didn't realise that the Luftwaffe forced their pilots into wearing summer skins over Stalingrad during the winter of 1942.

some of us dont like playing single player anymore. why ? because the AI will NEVER match a human who is totally unpredictable, in good or bad decisions.

 

 

I have never done so, but to give you an analogy, you are asking people who enjoy the company of real women for quite some time, to spend their afternoons with inflatables....

With this bs patronizing attitude they'll get a lot of customers....

In all honesty they might (look at War Thunder) but they'll lose all of their good ones.

Wait...what?

 

What does this have to do with them removing autopilot and x16 compression from the campaign?

If I want to live the life of a pilot, I'll go be a god damn pilot.

 

This may be a simulator, but even study sims like DCS World allows stuff like time compression.

 

Why?

 

BECAUSE IT'S BORING.

 

Not everyone enjoys spending so much time in the air, and they know that. Without time compression, some people will get bored, or irritated, and to spend all that time doing nothing, only to get shot down at a whim, will put some people off.

The removal of time compression and auto pilot has the stink of micro transactions all over it.

I've been quietly trying to make my way thru the campaign just so I can unlock items for MP, and up 'til this point it ha s been pretty good, although I'm still in the first 'chapter'. i've been mainly flying the IL2 and so far I've been pleased with the variety- Dawn missions, ground support, airfield attacks etc. I haven't actually counted but I've seen 20 or more ground targets along the mission route and at the target area. i've been playing on 'Expert' mode, but it would be nice to have the option to have exterior views, just to see my flight or check out the damage we're doing to our targets. However, i have been making use of the AutoPilot and I have been using 16 x time speed to get from point A to point B and I would like to be able to continue to use these options if I so choose. I really can not imagine why they were removed from campaign play.

I understand what you're trying to say Madov but what you must understand is that the only reason I am playing SP is so I can use the equipment for MP. As you well know I have played many online squadron campaigns where once you're dead you're dead. I'm willing to accept that because that is what I love. Heart thumping flying where you feel like your life depends on it otherwise it's game over. However, I also have a real life and I consider my time used for something useful that I consider is beneficial to me.

By forcing us to play SP to unlock equipment and then by removing time compression and autopilot they're potentially positioning themselves to offer 'unlock packs' for X-amount of $ Don't have the time to unlock that cannon you want? No problem, you can unlock it now for $5.00.

 

Fingers crossed that I'm way out of line and completely wrong.

I have accepted that this is a for profit project and that you can't make everyone happy. But adding the aim helper is just ridiculous. Removal of time compression is also a big concern. Both of these edits are hard to believe. I payed $100 for this. It's so people can't speed through missions and get unlocks. I hate the whole unlock thing. I paid $100 for this game and at the last minute your downgrading it.

 

I can't get into CEM but I like realistic gunnery

 

Please don't let this get to the release version.

At least 'level autopilot' is still in. I can set my course and then alt tab to get some work done for the 10 minutes it takes me to get to my target (cause that's WAY more realistic). Great work.

Folk were using 16x to blast through their shit ground breaking campaign to gain unlocks for MP.

We're not allowed to do this any more so everyone must suffer.

I guess it was Auto Level that I was using, but still, whats the difference if you can go x2 as opposed to x16. Is x 16 just too fast? I hate to tell you what happened last time i went x16. I promise I won't carry scissors.

A lot of you guys really make me laugh. You actually think that because you splashed nearly 100 bucks on this EA that you somehow have entitlement to stipulate how things should be. 777 alone have that entitlement and your money gives you a ringside seat to the construction site as the edifice goes up. Your comments on the work are welcome by the crews doing the work but it's their show and they call the shots, it's their business and they have the right and responsibility to direct things how they wish.

 

If you spent half the energy that you do on the whining on actually flying the sim, and trying to enjoy it whilst you do so, you would have unlocked everything by now that you need for MP.

 

I mean for the love of whatever God you believe in, stop behaving like brats and get on with the job of playing through the EA as it is given. You chose it, I did too, and I am enjoying it loads.
