KNIGHTS OF THE AIR Multiplayer Server

Recommended Posts

vad-asz was asking for impressions of the new 1943 Kuban mission, but I hadn't had the chance to actually attack anything while he was on.

So here goes:

A very good "massed assault" kinda feel, but a lot less tactical than usual. Both of these for the same reason. :)

Centring essentially all the targets for one team like that makes for a very nice dense atmosphere. AAA, planes and explosions everywhere.
I was quite impressed by how well the server was handling the sheer amount of stuff on the ground combined with basically having the entire server flying within ten clicks of that at the same time. 

Similarly, I suppose that the density of targets and planes promotes a more casual approach to fighting as there is little to no need to search for targets. Quite the show and rush, definitely, but not something I for one would want to fly in over and over again without more spread out, "slower" engagements in between.

 


One separate criticism from the perspective of level bombing, the placement of the wind, and the very low wind speed (1 m/s at all altitudes) was a bit disappointing as it took out what little challenge there is in setting the dials right, as direction and lack of speed lined up more or less perfectly with take-off and target alignment.
But I suppose this could've been done on purpose to lower the "intimidation" factor of the bomb sight a bit?

On the other hand I quite enjoyed the fact how hard it was to miss for a casual after-work flight. ;)

Yes, as a historical map, tried to "simulate the meatgrind".

@Sire due the game limitations, only people can see who already have the skin in our computer.

Hmmm ...that's a sad story - I choose a skin , and my 'mio ego' have the feeling I'm a really dangerous Russian killer !  

 

And the Russian fly around and look at me like a ordinary pilot with new polish shoes 🙄

Great server for flying in recent times 🙂

but I don't like one thing - the inclusion of the 109 G-6 and the La5-FN in the Kuban spring map and the location of the airfields. The aircraft weren't their in Kuban spring, they were there only (not even confirmed in La case) very late in 1943. I would prefer a Kuban spring without those two but with the Mig-3 and the I-16 (both were still used in Kuban) and the 109 F4. In addition the front was around the Caucasus and black sea during that time, so a shift towards them would be nice (this would allow us to fly along these nice mountains, where some fierce battles happened as well).

I'd like to see a Kuban winter map in addition (using the autumn map) with the front closer to Kerch using the current "Kuban spring" aircraft set, which would be more historical.

The current one is just a tad too far away from history.

 

Apart from that, I really like your servers, keep it up 🤗

You can improve your videos.

When in your or friendly external cam, press F8 to keep camview in the enemy, when in enemy's view, press Shift + F8 to keep camview in you or friendly.

If you keep pressing, the camview will change the target if it is nearby.

 

If combating against Spit, try to do loop intead of a horinzontal turn and... a question?
Why do you do head to head against Spit (you had advantage)?????? :dash:

thank you for the tips about cameras that I didn't know. About the head on... if you see I was texting on the chat so I recognised that the spit was turning into me a little bit too late, but I hit him with a good burst while he didn't hit me at all. I lost my wing due to a contact with its wing but he didn't report any damage from this...

Уважаемый  @VOLGA !

Приносим извинения за неудобства, мы обновили нашу систему статистики под капотом в ноябре, но мы не обновили весь текст. Наши FAQ и описания наград исправлены!

 

What do changes in this award consist in?

After a couple of months getting used to the aircraft in this SIM in other servers, we at the 334th are really enjoying our time in your server.
It's definitely my favourite.
Many thanks :D

BTW while I'm here, does your TS get populated or are you all on discord?

Does IL2 still have the problem where anyone using a custom winter skin in a Winter map will be seen wearing a default Summer skin by anyone who has not downloaded the Winter skin as well?

Swapping to the outnumbered team gives you more points, as far as I know.

I just attacked a friendly, and probably killed him. Don't know who my victim was, i just left the server instantly. Whoever it was, im truly sorry.Tired as i was, i should simply not have entered the server. I know, there is no excuse for that, especially not for a pilot like me. :fool:
