Nice video from @JorgeHFJ here -- a squadron of P47s deleting the German synthetic oil Factory in Operation Frantic. Some great ground attack shots here.

The problem with these wartime test is not so obvious but very critical to identify.

  1. The RAF test pilot flying the Fw 190A-3 didn't take the Kurt Tank's training course on how to properly fly the Focke Wulf. Thus they would not know specific nuances on how to get the best performance out of the Fw 190. As a real world example, while attending a 1-day class at AMG Driving School at KOTA last year, I was told to get the best launch from stand still in any Mercedes Benz  AMG , you need to be in "2nd Gear"!
  2. As the RAF didn't have many enemy aircraft to test at RAE Farnborough facility. Thus I am quite sure the test pilots were not pushing the aircraft to its limits as their stable of captured German aircraft are not easily replaceable.

So I would take the performance of the Fw 190A-3 and add 25% to it.

Awesome that you guys trigger big permanent smoke after destroying buildings ! 

 

We tried to model it like a real fire. The smoke doesn't always start for each building, and fires burn out at a different rate, so each time you destroy an objective the smoke will look different!

I didn't film the landing, no sense eating up the hard drive space.  I don't care about the shootdown, just curious about why it says I didn't landed there.  Also curious if you saw the p47-28 doing damage to me in the log file.  I've included a screen of the instant it hit me.

47hitonme.jpg

If this was on the DDay mission, then chances are you had just finished combat over Gold Beach and are now running away trying to RTB back to Hardjie Bie using your radio beacon. You've lined yourself up, you see an AF in front of you and deduced "surely that must be it" and "landed." Except kill log says you were shot down and DITCHED. How come??

 

Until you realize you may have just landed at the German AF objective (Grid 806)...NOT Hardjie Bie (Grid 0905) which, at a faint glance, bare a few similarities: Open fields, roughly same position, close flight times to/from Target area...

 

Note how both AFs (objective and spawn AF) align almost on the same vector if you are returning from Gold (Grid 507-ish).

 

All this may have happened to me the other night.

Just a question: Why russian tanks instead of Shermans on west maps like D Day?

Because there are no assets for that to choose from yet.

The very end of my track shows me just North of Chaltemir heading west.  My guess is I wound up at Alibay since I remember flying close to the city.  I can't see if that is the proper airfield or not currently on the server.  But I did go back and rewatch the track a few times and the P47 hit me more than once.  Not sure why that's missing from the log. @Alonzo    Thanks for map Haza

maybe i'm coming in late on the d-day invasion, 1 arty position, harbor, factory, axis airfields. were there more and they were taken out already, or do more appear as game progresses?

On frantic map, why no Stukas and bombers available on all airfields (in fact: Inyutino AF)?

 

Btw, is there any hopes to add Stuka on all map (like d-day) even if it's not "historical"...?

As of today, I get disconnected after around 20-30 seconds of being on combat box.

 

I didn't get any message except for "game server connection lost" repeatedly. Could you please take a look to see if there was a timeout or package loss or anything similar? I have switched connections recently but can stay connected to other servers just fine.

 

Thanks

We saw you repeatedly cursing other players in chat.This isn't tolerated on other servers and isn't tolerated here. As moderators/admins we do not care about who "started" anything either, this isnt kindergarten. You do have some time to think about how you want to type in chat in the future. I can however tell you that your post in this thread now is not helping your case whatsoever. Might want to rethink that.

I know that the main theme of CB is late war planes but, I do enjoy the early/mid war plane set as well.  I really like the fact that this is a server that is well put-together and also moderated. 

I also like the fact that it's a server where I get the best ping.   Would you guys consider adding a few early/mid war maps if they didn't outweigh the amount of late war maps you want to add?  It's ok if you don't but, I thought I'd ask.  I'd much rather prefer this server over others to get my I-16, Yak-1, Pe-2.35 fix.

Psyrion, do the logs show anything on why I am getting disconnected after 20-30 seconds? I was connecting and getting disconnected 10pm to 11pm yesterday, several times. Maybe there is something I can do to fix it? Or some routing issue maybe?

 

I tested Wings, Kota and Berloga and there I could stay connected.

For now the idea is to stick with 44/45 scenarios to have a server where you always find late war scenarios. Glad that you like it though ^^.

Hi Fenris, I checked but don't see much extra info in the logs. Here's a snippet:

Do you know roughly how many players were connected at the time? We are on the lookout for network problems; server performance is good so if anything is a problem it might be the network.

Nope. I was just trying to see if I could get the planes I like mixed in on CB so I could avoid visiting WoL to fly them. KOTA is alright, but it's hard to tell when it will be populated enough to actually have more than 1 Allied player vs. 5 Axis.   What can I say?  I just like the early war planes a bit more.

 

Considering that the good 'ol I-16 most certainly CAN hand a competent D9 pilot his ass if flown right, I'd say "dead Allied meat" is a bit of hubris from you.  

 

Yes, I do fly mostly Red but, that's because I rarely see times when blue is outnumbered.  That's ok. Once the P-51 and P-38 come out, I'm sure enough Axis-only pilots will suddenly defect, leaving me plenty of opportunity to fly E7s and 202s without worrying about over-stacking the Blue side.  

 

Thanks for trollposting though.

Thank you Alonzo. 

There were around 56 players active at the time. It's a number I remember.

I feel that too.  The i16 and mig3 and occasionally the la5 and p39 are the only red fighters I might not waste flying out.  I enjoy the variety BoX has and wouldn't mind missions spanning it, especially because my ping is great on il2na and its usually occupied when I'm on.  I also like the existing missions and the server settings on here.

I believe we have turbulence enabled on two out of the four maps, and it's at level "1" on a scale of 0 to 4. I'm definitely interested in more feedback. Personally I have not found turbulence to be a deal breaker but that's just me and I am only one data point. What I'd really like is proper turbulence modeling so I can say, for example, "turbulence under 200 feet is light, turbulence 200-1000 feet moderate, 1000-2000 feet light, above 2000 no turbulence" but as far as I can tell it's just one number that affects the whole air space.

Yeah, too many missions, online and off, have nearly perfect weather. Bad weather adds to the fun! I like the low cloud and turbulence on this server.

Allies side cannot capture Bagerovo airfield.

I just think it feels horrible in this game, makes the plane feel like it's moving through mud or something.

 

I don't like it at all. But apparently other people do, and it's your guys server.
