As I'm fairly new to IL-2 I have a question about the 109E-7 engine overheating.
I'm using the manual radiators to keep the 2 engine temp gauges (oil & coolant) down around 80'-100'.
I'm also watching the dual pressure gauge (1 must be oil), to make sure it doesn't get near the upper limits.
And still the engine pours out thick black smoke and then stops, how am i supposed to stop this occurring if the gauges don't warn me it's about to happen.
I know from the map/stat's page the time limits for each power setting but surely this should be "reflected" by the gauges rather than me counting seconds in my head for each power setting.
Cheers in advance
