Hey gib i recently copied cfs2 from my old comp into my new one and was flying the BA p38 J LO.

I dont know if you ever flew her but the nose gear wheel is linked with the rudder axis which looks amazing when turned in unison. I dont know if its too late but it would be a nice feature to have in il2fb.

IL2 has that feature. Tailwheels/ nosewheels are synced with the rudder unless you lock it. ("lock tail wheel" in controls menu).

I thought the P-38's nose wheel was free castering. ???

I don't see any planes with syched nose or tailwheels. They are all free castering aren't they?

P-39's nose wheel is controlled by the rudder. Think thats the only one though.

Yeah the p39 is the only one and probally the p39 king cobra. Im wondering if gibbage did the effect on the nose wheel.

All the others are free spining

Inferior nose wheel technology. Is it that difficult to make it steerable?

No need on the P-38. The prop wash went over the rudders and gave it excellent ground handling. Plus you could use brakes as well as the engines to steer.

ITs all up to Oleg. I only make the model, he and his programmers decide how it should work.
