I purchased this sim as a founder but I stepped away from this sim when the unlock issue was onging.
I have just started playing again and purchased BOM and started flying online again, coming from IL2 1946
I have found the short dot range to be counter to what you want when online, as it makes it to difficult to engage in the activity you came online to play.
I have found the 10 k limit and the popping in of dots to be the worst aspect of this game.
I flew for 45 munites on one shortie when the server had 40 people in it and only found one person to duel with, this really kills the fun and the reason you bought it in the first place.
the old IL2 had most online servers set to 20 to 25 k to keep people active and having fun! the range give a person the ability to work on your tactics and also allows for better team action and interface.
I tried following other players around the map but soon relised that most it not all the action happened around the 10 k bubble of an airbase and the reason being is that we are all blind!
Every body I talked to said turn down the gama and you can see dots, ok but that kinds of kills tha aspect of the game and effort of the dev to make it look like it does at normal settings.
Why date a super model if your going to dress her in a ugly dress, raggy shoes and a floppy hat !!
I truly like the way the game looks and feels!
But the popping in of dots and low visibilty aspect in online play kills it for me!
Update ! 84 people in a server, flew 30 minutes and was jumped twice by high 109s that i just barely spotted in time. and thats all I saw during a 30 minute flight ! that = 2 minute of fun while i tried to get away and then we BOTH lost the dots.
Dev fix the dot range and get rid of the worst aspect of the game and they will come
Just my 2 cents or rather my 79.99
I know people will say get a better system and you will see the dots, but I really cant get much better than what i have.
