What about World war 3 through 10?

Are those also on hold or can we expect them soon?

 

I believe the US is working hard on WW3, "two weeks be sure".

You mixed something up there peregrine, she didn't win - didn't he make peace with NK and Russia? WW3 only in videogames! Beside WW3 as a game (Jets anyone? 262 first!), politics aren't supposed to get discussed here.

 

The BoBP aircraft are fantastic so far by the way. Very thrilling to see them released!

Not, the A-8 and F-8, nope. Take some time to research the differences between this model and the earlier ones released.

Yes sir, I agree.  But that is in reality.  The FW's in this simulation  are based on the same model.  With a few tweeks.  IMO we need aircraft.

The A8 is great, 13mm noseguns, and don't get me started on the MK108 30mm in the wings. It's fantastic. 🤩 Just a shame that the new aircrafts aren't features as late models on some servers like WoL or TAW. I hope they'll include them in late late scenarios.

It may be a FW190 but its a very different aircraft too. It's quite different in its handling as well as its armament options. We've got two aircraft for the price of one here with the FW190A-8 and F-8 both represented. And we have the heavy bomber interceptor configuration too with the extra armor plate as an option, MG131 machine guns in the nose deck, MK108 30mm cannons optional in the wings, Panzerblitz rockets, etc.

Based on the same mode but also with quite a few feature differences.

 

Also... what do you think the devs have been busy doing?

I've heard the cold war be referred to as WW3. I know everyone doesn't, but that was from a 2017 USAF Holmcenter reader.

I’ve never heard it called that. Both world wars were shooting wars with astronomical loss of life.. It seems inappropriate to refer to the Cold War as such.

Yeah I am positive we won't see the new planes on WoL till the map drops. They go for at least semi realistic. You can absolutely fly all the new planes online in berlogas dogfight and duel server though, all three are in there right now.

I just started getting into the IL2 series but didn't have enough money to spend on multiple modules. I really like the plane list for BOBP MUCH more than any of the others and purchased it for $70. I knew it was pre-release with only a few planes but I didn't realize what an empty game it is, nothing but quickstart and being a gunner in MP maps... Now I come here and it sounds like development is very slow from the way you guys are talking... I fly strictly VR and the multiplayer chat seems broken, I can hear dings but don't see text anywhere (show multiplayer chat or w/e it is called is checked in options) and I don't get any external views in VR. The damage model is superb and so is the VR performance, there is just no content at all and the VR experience seems broken. I know many people hold the IL2 flight model in high regard but I find it is subpar compared to DCS, it reminds me more of War Thunder with all the BF-109 full aft stick flying I do. Hopefully that is because these 3 planes are pre-release. Hopefully someone here can put me at ease.

It's not slow, I think the team has managed one new game every 18 months or so. It just takes time. One year from now I'm sure there will be MP servers with BOBP planes available. Here's maybe something the devs should think of doing: run an official server with the early access planeset, or make arrangements with existing server owners to run such a server.

Press H and the chat should become visible. The problem is that the chat GUI slows down VR rendering noticeably, so you only want to show it when you hear the ding.

That's a server owner setting. Popular public servers tend to disable it, especially in expert mode. There sneaking up on someone is a big part of the game, and external views defeat that.

Opinions will vary on that, but measurements show plane performance in IL-2 is pretty close to available data. There is always at least one ongoing debate about the performance of one or more planes, but I think it's fair to say a lot more effort is put by IL-2's devs than War Thunder's devs.

WW III will be started as a cyber war by the Russians or Chinese. Not by North Corea, you can't start a cyber war with 16 Bit systems.:biggrin:

 

WWIII is more likely to start between India and China over access to drinking water.

North Korea is relatively safe, if there ever was a shooting war they'd straight-up lose it, but no-one can be arsed dealing with the aftermath.

Since the bump noise in VR has been seriously silenced in comparison to before, I have gotten FC now. For TC I'll have to wait for the hitbox issues to get fixed, as portrayed here on page 18!

 

Keep up the good work Devs, the WW1 planes are fun to fly - the capture the feeling of being very nimble quite well - especially when landing 😁

Is Bf 110 G2 usable on Bodenplatte career in any unit?

Im pretty sure no but still asking because i love that plane.

 

Cant wait to fly P-38 and its still heavy fighter and can use my CH Flight Sim Yoke for it 😊

I've thought about getting a yoke just for the P-38, wonder how it feels to fly a fighter with a yoke.

Yeah I swear some of the limits on the some of the planes have definitely been worked on, the FW190's are so much better I am positive it's not in my head. I use to bump my head into the cockpit constantly while flying either the a3 or the a5 and now they seem better than the 109s in my opinion. I don't think it's just in my head. Also the noise has definitely been toned down which is really great. I barely hear it now. Thank you Jason and the team.

I’m actually very curious myself, I always assumed it would be more stable, but I could be totally wrong.

Excellent! Any plans on Ju 88s or He 111s? IIRC Ju 88s were used as pathfinder planes on 1st January 1945.

There were Ju 88 G-1 and Ju 88 G-6 as pathfinder planes and He 111 H-6, H-16, H-20 as transport planes.

We've no transport containers for He 111 and Ju 88 G are very different from ours Ju 88 A-4 so you'll not see these planes in the career.

And I forgot about A-20Bs for the AI squadrons.

Hi Blacksix,

 

Were those Ju-87’s used as NachtSchlacht units?

Anyone else having an issue with the Fw190 A8 throttle and ATA?

ATA gauge in cockpit won't go over 1.2 in level flight when i have 100% throttle and even when I activate boost.

The technochat says I'm in combat/emergency mode but you can tell the plane is very slow and is not really using more than 1.2 ATA.

Maybe you are in the altitude where 1st supercharger speed starts losing pressure, before engaging the 2nd speed. IIRC it's around 2-3k.

Thx, I'll have to test at different alittudes then.

 

Edit: seems to work around 3000, so must be a supercharger thing.

I'm aware that we're in the early stages of the development of the Tank Crew interface, but anyways, here goes, regarding single player / multi player tanking:

I'm into the single player tanking, and am not sure if I'll have any interest in multi player tanking (meaning here, multiple players crewing 1 tank).

One of the top features for me, of the original T34 and Pz3 has been, to ride around with the hatch open, looking around, using mouse control of the entire turret to move the hatch out of way when it obstructs vision. This is particularly important in the T34 with the big hatch. Yes I see there's a realism argument against that, but I don't care.

Did some missions today in the KV1 and was quite irritated by the large blind zone to my left, created by the open hatch, which I couldn't remedy by turning the turret to the left. I'm sure a tank commander could tell the gunner to turn the turret, in order to see better. And if I operate the tank as single player, I'm all of those guys...

It would be terrible if this new interface of not being able to turn the turret when looking out, was transplanted to the T34 with the big hatch. You'd see nothing.
