haha no :) manifold should be at 54 for take off but I can't get it over 40 whatsoever...

It needs some time to build the pressure up. It has turbocharger like the P-47.

Going from no issues testing, my best guess then if you have mixture set and prop pitch to 100%, the turbo does take lot of time to wind up.  So maybe where I just start rolling at lower MP and let it build up during take off roll. Usually I hold brakes and let it build up until brakes no longer hold it then go. From memory (still downloading) it needs a high rpm before the MP will build higher.

No not that long. Is this to taxi or even start QMB from runway ie engines running

Then you forgot to adjust the RPM. Or didn't release the parking brake.

Loading with 20Kbs....

Really annoying. With this downloads peed it will take days while my bandwidth is 12MBs. Could long have been flying... :(

@Blooddawn1942 I feel your pain man, I really do. My DL speed went down to below 2kB... Yes, you didn´t misread this... 

It is sooo frustrating after waiting... well almost two years now... sigh...

Can you hit the bar? I know it doesn´t speed up the DL, but it eases the pain... 🍻

BTW, @MeoW.Scharfi, @DerSheriff and @SYN_Requiem put up some videos already. Those lucky *******, guys I mean. Thank you three very much. Watching those videos might help pass the time. So, see you soon, looking forward to the new content and the improvements!

Question from somebody who doesn't know much about the P38: What's up with the reflecting surface on the inner face of the engine gondolas?

Great, new static planes! But wait a minute... Typhoon as a Static plane? Very interesting :)

when the wind pushes on the propeller and it starts spinning faster therefore driving the engine...

It's to let you confirm the nosewheel is down when you extend the landing gear or check it's direction while taxiing.

Overall thoughts: Very impressive patch with lots of good content. Well done team.

 

The Rheinland map: Generally very convincing and good looking. A step up for Ugra in terms of earlier efforts. Impressive scale. Large towns and cities look very good.

 

What I do find very peculiar is the utter lack of isolated farms and smaller clumps of houses scattered throughout. Hope this is something that might come later.

 

Textures overall look good, but a bit grainy down low - hope the can be an option for a higher texture option down the line. Looks gorgeous from medium to high altitude.

 

AI- behaves much better now. Awesome. Dogfights are entertaining enough, even against the AI.

 

The new voices: I am a bit torn here. The general voice acting and production is very good. However, the underlying matrix is- I am sad to say- not so great. The sentences uttered between pilots are not very believable and is something that could be improved upon tremendously. Before any point out that is to difficult to achieve, certain unnamed WW2 sims, one in particular that came out in the late 90's had more believable radio chatter (With warnings, clock calls, etc.). The voice actors are not to blame though- it is the system upon which it is built that is bad, and something that should be rewritten.

 

Haven't gotten into the newer aircraft yet. Mainly fly the Spit, which is forever my go to bird. (I am still agonizing over the fact that the pilot opens the side door when in idle power. Something I have never, ever, seen in any clip or in real life, except when the pilot enters or leaves the aircraft.)

 

Besides from these gripes, which, believe me, are meant as constructive, the overall scale and quality of content is impressive and appreciated.

No rockets for the Tempest... That's sad

 

It is pretty realistic... It kindof does motivate us to get a Typhoon eventually though...!

both I did though... when I start with engines running it works, but just not with start up. I noticed that my LBS oil gauge never went to the green line though. Something is odd.

I can't hear sounds of getting hit or enemy gunfire most of the time in MP.

 

Zooming in sometimes makes it actually harder to see far away planes (noticed this on a winter map).

 

109 F4 engine is very quiet now.

 

I also start to blackout even in relatively mild turns.

Nice, the Spitfire flap "tuck" was implemented! And very accurately so! So much attention to details.

Yeah, figured that bit out - just not recognising my file I suppose!:

 

image.thumb.png.97b452e42f85605960b89e755366a76b.png

 

I tried using the settings mentioned above for the .dds file (1024x1024 in DXT5 ARGB 8bpp with mip-maps) but it's still not playing nice. I will wait for a smart person to write a guide I think 😁

 

Yes, same black photo with me unfortunally.

Anyone can us dummies write a short guide? :)

Can you maybe record a track and upload it on the bug forums? I just checked from parked position and everything worked fine.

Thank you guys for this big update only thing ive seen so far is the wheel doors on the P-51 dnt extend when you set the parking brake... can wait to do some flying on the new maps. 

Edit: the sound the p51 makes when the air flows thru the .50cals sound great

Edit: 109-K4 has some tire texture issues you can see thru some of the tire

Owerall Looking awesome. I like the WW1 airfields. Rheinland map is huge. It needs some smaller villages and farms, but  there will be some updates eventually...

Just set up a quick mission on the Rheinland map with P38s escorting the B25s and set a few 110s and 262 on them, set my P38 to autopilot and sat back and watched from various views, oh my! Yabbadabbado!

Love the new planes, love 150 octane fuel, love the increased visibility options.

Does it work for you? In VR they're still visible through my plane.

You guys have outdone yourselves, 2 engines really is better than 1... Thanks for giving us the static objects and vehicles to make a US campaign possible!

Doesn't mean anything. Art team getting cute. I'm changing these flags soon.

I guess @Gambit21 was correct since Japan is listed with Italy as an Axis side now, I guess you don't need to make that announcement about which theatre(s) is/are coming next. I will look forward to hearing it first hand anyway. 😎

Am I the only one that cant download the patch? I have been trying to download this for around two hours now to no avail. Steam is stuck at trying to patch the game and I have no idea how to even fix this.
