Ok gang.
To make everything simple and readable for Oleg, to give him the possibility to browse 1 thread, not 10 of them with 5-20 pages each...let`s start brand new one and make it sticky.

But...there will be a few rules:

1) Respect.
2) Prove.
3) Direct question on the issue.

Please do not post ... i think, i feel...i heard.

Make it a professional questionary of issues with FM/DM/Gunnery...etc etc. Cheesy comments and accusations will be deleted without any warning along with irrelevant questions that have nothing to do with the subject. If you have problems with me managing this thread, please feel free to contact me VIA PT. Lets try to keep this civil and keep in mind, this is for your own benefit, so don`t screw it up http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Keep in mind, that Oleg is not capable of reading this board day and night, so please don`t forget to submit your findings (possible and obvious bugs) to il2beta@1c.ru - Oleg reads those e-mails himself.

Fire away!

One big question: To what extent is damage modeling programmed in with most planes?

I have seen oil leaks, fuel leaks, engine damage, engine failure, engine fire, fuel tank fire, holes in wings, wings ripped off at various sections, holes in fuselage of some planes (BF109 and IL-2 in particular) and I can't think of anything else at the moment.

I've seen a lot, but with a game as impressive and detailed as IL2, I bet there is still more I have not seen or noticed. You should have seen my face when I heard bombs whizzing as they fell. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Ju-88 Mistal has no explosive power in dogfight maps cant be used as a kamikazi plane. does have a nice mushroom cloud though. cant make moving objects in dog fight maps. No range ring for artillery and armor in FMB needed to see if your in range of your target when in FMB. no V-1 rockets avail for dog fight maps. subs dont fire torpedos at ships in dog fight maps. torpedo boats dont fire torps at ships. no wind settings in FMB, no precip settings in FMB, although ive never been to Europe i dont think they have weather like available in FMB but i could be wrong http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/1072.gif

Ok...already mostly sent in but here's my questionables:

1) P-51D-20 skin bug. Uses checkertail for all nations except US which uses the green scheme from the D-5. Probability of being a bug: high.

2) P-63C-5 bomb bug. On initial tap (with three bombs attached) two bombs (center and wing) drop which leaves a single bomb on the other wing, creating an asymmetric load. Probability of being a bug: high.

3) Spitfire Mark V and P-51C RAF marking problem. The markings on the underwing surfaces have a yellow ring around them to which I have never seen any pictures of there being. Since I have never seen any aircraft in the game sporting more than two types of nationality markings this is likely a compromise. I'd suggest a new compromise - custom marking system like what has been done for Italian and American fighters. This already partially implemented because the Spitfire V has a three color tail identification marking when Great Britain is selected.

4) The M2 .50cal problem. Something is wrong with this gun...either the spread is huge (which has been discussed in ample detail with massive numbers of sources provided in Gibbages P-38 thread) or the damage is low...I have no specific sources although I've just discovered this site (http://www.zenoswarbirdvideos.com/) which has an American propoganda piece called "The Fight For The Sky". The propoganda is typical of WWII style...but what is important is that there is at least 30-40 minutes of gun camera footage on air and ground targets. Stuff falls apart alot quicker in those videos than I've ever seen in AEP. 1.22 was closer in this respect...in terms of a purely qualitative analysis I think things are off.

I also note that this seems to be present for all gun types. Virtually every fighter seems to take lots of rounds from every type of gun (ShVAK, ShKAS, UBS, M2 .50 cal, MG151/20, MG-FF, etc.) with possible exception of the .303 which is more powerful now than before.

Jug roll rate I have already discussed with Oleg and he's dicussed with others. Oleg has drawn a new roll chart that I've seen and others have seen and I think it'll be great. That issue is down. Virtually everything else is quite good for me...I love the game, I'm adicted...but always push for things when I see them and if input is requested it is provided if I have something to say. Nothing more, nothing less.

1. Crazyivan stated that we will be "pleasantly surprised" when the patch is released regarding weapon/DMing. Does this mean there was a bug that was identified or are things simply going to be changed. If it was a bug of sorts, was/is it an online thing only or offline as well (if you can't give any details, please just answer this if you can). To be honest it seems like it is a global problem, taking the wings off of a P-51, P-63, and others is almost impossible with anything less than 30mm and all guns short of small mg's seem underpowered. It seems there were many updates from Gibbage that showed damage levels not seen in game also.

2. Crazyivan, did you ever get an answer on the possibility of an option for the A-4 and A-5 to have the outter cannons removed without a bombrack being added to slightly increase performance?

Ivan, can't you just delete some of the previous posts to make this thread more useful. I don't mean this as a shot towards anyone, it just got off to a rocky start but the intention is good/appreciated.

And p1ngu666, the e-mail address to report bugs is in the first post of the "Attention: about bug reports" sticky thread.

You mention in many threads that we will be pleased with the upcoming patch regarding damage modelling/weapon effectiveness. Do you or can you give us some idea where they are at as far as getting the patch out to the public? Any type of insight into time frame would be appreciated.

Hows this;
Is there a dedicated server patch in the works?

When will it be ready?

Can that question be given a concrete answer?

"I am not free to make any comments, all i can say that many people will be pleased."

Why should we ask you any questions then?

What is the point of this forum thread?

Hi!

I have question about FM of Spitfire in coming patch. I wonder if climb rate of Spitfire VB Merlin 45 (1941) and Spitfire VB CW Merlin 46 will be change. Acording to Il2 compare and my own test these planes have incrased climb rate from deck up to 6000km.
According to the british test: http://www.fourthfightergroup.com/eagles/w3134.html
Spitfire MK V Merlin 45 had constant climb rate (3240) to 4,5km than climb rate start to decrase.
Spitfire MKV CW Merlin 46 had worse climb rate at the deck than Spit Merlin 45 but its climb rate should incrase to 6 km than start to decrasing.
Best climb rate for:
Merlin 45 - 3240 ft/min
Merlin 46 - 2780 ft/min
In AEP both Spitfire had similar (the same) climb rate (Il2 compare). I think its important problem in relative performance between Spitfire MkV and BF 109.

The dedicated server patch should be along shortly after the AEP patch. It has been said in General discussion as well as in ORR. Please note that Ivan isn't answering questions, this thread is to centralize the questions that are for Oleg and team to look at with ease.

One quick question : is there any way to rewind tracks with different speeds in track player ?

TX-EcoDragon
04-13-2004, 11:45 AM
Why is it still often neccessary to press the "I" key (and some say toggle mags) to restart the gravity fed fuel system equipped aircraft? The aircraft of similar vintage and configuration that I have flown require a lower G value, and longer negative G exposure (no engine burbling from turbulence for example) to result in fuel starvation, and of course because the prop continues to windmill the firing the mags continues and so there is no need for the pilot to touch the mags or starter. . . simply rolling upright returns things to normal.

EcoDragon, thats prolly a limit to the FB engine. Think about it. It would be nice but I don't see anything changing on this. I am usually wrong though. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Out of extensive online tests though, most of which have been success for my enemies, I can tell you that all that is needed to restart a starved engine is to a) right the aircraft, b) drop throttle to idle and c) press the 'I' key.

Limit! What do you mean Limit! Oleg knows no limitations!!
;-)

Seriously though, improvements have been made in the more recent patches, I just thought that I might complain a little about the need to engage the starter (on behalf of my little biplane flying friends). The point you made is a good one though, with regard to the way that the code would produce a restart.

And I will pass along your sentiments to Wayne!

Hi... I've noticed the climb rate on the CR.42 is absolutely ridiculously overmodeled... It can climb twice as fast as the i-153, even though its NON retractable, is twice as heavy, and has 75% of the horsepower! thats nuts... I hope this gets corrected..also for whatever reason I cannt post a new thread, get a JS "access denied" error in IE6.0

Development question related to the additions of Pacific theatre AC to FB.

I have seen the development updates which depict the B29, Midway Islands and various Japanese AC.

Question: Will the B29 have nuclear weapons as a loadout option?

While perhaps not all that fair to the opposiiton side, it sure would make spectacular fireworks.

Heck, the LA5/7 in the game dont even have ROCKETS even though the real ones did....

So I doubt you'll see any nuclear powered devices, on Allied Planes, anyway.

Of course, if the germans even had SKETCHES of a bomb, all the german planes would be equipped with them (in IL2)....

It's funny that serially produced items on the allied side (rockets on planes) don't get implemented, yet planes that were mere gleams of a designers eye are implemeneted in IL2, as long as they are Axis planes...

Note -- ME262 has rockets -- LA5 does not. What gives?

I would also like to fly the 110 in one of my campaigns without having to choose an entire 110 career like it currently works

As you can see ... this game is not a fad, people actually like history and love to try and recreate it and live it .. as it was, not as some think it should be .... And it is appreciated that every effort has/is being put into the development of this simulation. But I do feel that you guys are maybe taking a more backseat view of it and not allowing it to progress into the future ...

Just a thought of the moment.

Hi to everyone

This has been discussed before but just in case here are my two doubts:

1. Disappearing planes afeter landing:

Please make it optional:

http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&amp;s=400102&amp;f=63110913&amp;m=94410083&amp;r=9181 09183#918109183

2. Flak not firing when friendly planes fly closer to ennemy ones.

It happens sometimes, some people have seen it others don't...i have a FMB mission where this happens...i delete all the german planes and replay the mission and the 88mm flak just shredd the poor overflying bombers

http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=50910533&m=87110733&r=714100933#714100933

In order to get this fixed i have decided to e-mail the mission file...any precise e-mail or person to direct it from the developping team ?

very easy question. where is the AEP patch
you would think since aircraft on box was not what we got you would have had this patch out allready....

That's the question all of us are asking Gen, hopefully they'll get it out ASAP, putting aside any projects untill the patch is out, it's that important to us end users, believe me. My two cents.

Dont know if this questions have been puted here before and if it has I apology...
This are some sort of questions mixed with sugestions:

1. I-16 (SPB) is buged again. Its I-16 from 1.11 - the flying tank

For the enxt pach:

2. Will you please eliminate the muzzle flashes? if you dont have the tech just please delete the file that makes them, its simple and many many players will be extrimely happy
3. Will the Fw190 radiator auto/closed be eliminated from selection? or it is too hard?
4. Will you please fix the damage and the power of wepons? Now all the wepons especialy the german side plaines are rubber, not to mention the IAR80/81... Even the Russian/american plaines... Please fix them and make it worth evry single 30mm/20mm and even the little machine guns 7.6mm
5. Russians plaine still fly excelent at high altitudes
6. Was the 109 flew like a rock over 400 km?
7. Please do somthing so players have better fps...
Even I that have a good pc 1600+ xp 512 ram and G4Ti4400 have an average of 10 fps when flak shot, be on runway, wach destroyed items, many plaines in front...

Hey,hows it goin.I have a comment about the p-38.I went to that place www.zenoswarbirdvideos.com (http://www.zenoswarbirdvideos.com) and watched a training film on how to fly the p-38L and looked at some performance charts that I thought you guys should look at if you haven't allready.In the film you will notice they talk about using the booster pump which in the game the p-38L does not have.Also the performance chart states that the p-38's http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif top speed is 578kmph at 500m.Can you guys check in to this and tell me what you think?thx.S~

Why havent guns been modelled correctly?
There is no jamming, and they fire in G turns?

How can we really recreate old air war when guns dont act like Real Guns ???

Also why so much pandering to the yanks?

I used to love this game, but I have gone right off it ... too much pandering, bickering etc. So my valuable time will be spent elsewhere. (Occasionally I'll be back .. time permitting)

Good bye.

I dearly love this flight sim and the Hurricane, but feel she has been neglected...as you will know ,she was known as the Hurri-Bomber...Russia used her with her bombs and rockets aswell as other allied countries.
With your next flight sim being Battle of Britain (although i think the MkI Hurricane didnt have bombs/rockets...or did it?) and progressing from there through the war...the Hurricane ordnance must be addressed at some point...i would prefer to have it done in IL2 FB if it is at all possible...also i am prepared to pay for the information that you require if i have too,if you could tell me what it is you require or where i can get it from.

Thank you for your time, thank you for the best flight sim. to date...and congratulations http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I love the quick mission builder, great fun but could the fighter bombers like the IL2 and even the Stuka break formation and attack fighters if they get jumped, seems silly how they stay in perfect formation and end up getting butchered.

Also could more planes be added to it? Instead of 4 per flight group maybe 12? I love setting up quick flights and bigger is better IMO.

1. Just a small and simple guestion, why is the BK 3,7 fire-rate still too slow, it should be 160 rpm!
2. What cannon it is in Yak-9UT, cos it's not the same NS-37 as other variants.

Is it possible with the FB/AEP or PF engine to model in VMC (Velocity Minimum Control) Characteristics with multi-engine aircraft?

If it is possible, is there any chance of it ever being done? I have tested it with several multi-engine planes, namely the P-38 and BF-110.

Shut off one engine, deliberately not feather it, run other one at full power and keep pulling up until stall speed... and plane simply does normal wing-drop stall.

Major Gunner of the 361st vFG

P.S. - Thanks for making PF compatiable AND stand-alone, Oleg & Crew :-)

Hi;

I would like to know two things:

- If there's any website where i can learn how to create missions using the Full Mission Builder.
- Did the P-47-D27 use HVAR rockets in WWII? If yes, can they be added to the P-47 as they did with the P-38?

Thanks.
