Impressed with the Progress!

Recommended Posts

Things have come a long way in the 1C camp. The AI is actually fun to fight now, opting to preserve their speed instead of indulging in suicidal turnfighting and occasionally making mistakes according tot heir skill level. Well done 1C! I'm impressed by your progress and commitment.

I get why the Russians loved the p39 now.

they used to be the epitome of target practice drones, now that they fight vertically and preserve energy, they’re much more impressive

I'm currently flying a p39 campaign over kuban because I love the plane, and I still don't get why the russians loved it XD 109s feel like freaking rockets in comparison

I think it had more to do with the big center gun and not having to rely on convergence distances than its flight behavior. I dunno though. It is more of an adversary now, especially how they well they dive with you. At least till they lawn dart 😂

In the words of junior lieutenant Sevarin Arishov "Engine block makes good armor, then you walk home" yeah, my career persona isn't very funny 😁

...because it was a good aircraft below 10,000 feet.

yes, I just wish it had a supercharger. its hard to escort those bombers when my plane can barely keep up with them :P 

 

EDIT: 

 

Anyway, we're too off-topic now, 

 

I also think the the AI is much better now, but there are still many circle jerks

They loved the cockpit, the clear hood, the armament and the fact that they had receiver/transmitter radios. And as already stated it was pretty good at lower altitude.

The 109s are like rockets compared to just about everything the Soviets had, really. It wasn't until 1943 that you even start seeing the Soviet planes catch up.

Yup, radio, they could actually fight as a team.

Yep and after mid 1943 it went downhill for the germans very fast. We really need that 1944 and the 44/45 period in the game. That is when the VVS really started to play their game.

I guess in real life it must have felt better. In the game, without trackir the visibility feels too obstructed by the window frames. With trackir if feels better, but alas I haven't really gotten used to it yet, so the frames keep makibg me loose track of targets. I feel the same inside the P38.

Due to my Oculus Rift not functioning any more and having to send back my new Pimax 5K+ and being busy as hell I've only got to fly one career mission since the latest update but I gotta say I had a huge amount of fun dogfighting with the AI that time. Can't wait for my replacement Pimax so I can get back into it!

It does have a supercharger, it's just a single stage one so no good for high altitude - otherwise you wouldn't be able to get over ~30" of MP (and that only with the engine off! 😂).

AI has improved dramatically over the last year, and steadily,  which means they are working on it steadily, so it's great to see the continuous rewards from their decision to hire an AI programmer.  Career really offers some fun clashes now.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to some great careers/PWCG/scripted campaigns. It's good to see the attention to detail extending outside the cockpit in a current gen flight sim again.
