After many hours of thrashing around in the Gladiator I just noticed that the cockpit trim indicator reacts to trim application. The wonders in this game never end! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hey Bear,

What exactly is supposed to be animated with the K14? I've watched the gunsight and surrounding areas while making adjustments but danged if I don't see anything going on.

Hey Bear, I'm just as clueless as Astro on this one. Could you give us a quick synopis? With 2 preteen daughters I consider myself lucky to have enough time to fly at all &lt;ggg.&gt; All the best, LongHorn

Astro and Longhorn, try setting up the K-14 for say; FW200 Condor, and you see the indicator goes to the correct position,and that the ring of the diamond expands to the correct wingspan of that planetype. Default controls are Shift+B for toggling between sight types. Shift+L and Shift+R for toggling between planetypes. Read the Control list in the game for further info.
Puzzels me though that FW had bigger wingspan than a 109, did it really?? ( must admit, I never checked)

WouldnÔ┬┤t suprise me. Somebody whose name I donÔ┬┤t recall once posted a jpg that showed an aerial view of all the fighters in the game. Some of the aircraftsÔ┬┤ sizes were surprising. The 109 is definitely much smaller than youÔ┬┤d imagine.

FW-190 = 10,50 m
ME-109 = 9,97 m

The K-14 is pretty cool to watch in action, especialy the knobs in the cockpit turning, but I dont use it, it clouds my judgement and crowds the gunsight... but I dont doubt if you use it properly, it could be very effective...

Countdown to 1337 post count = P minus 109

Actually when you look in the aircraft wiever on the frontpage here, it says Fw-190A-8 has a wingspan of 10,5 meters and Me-109G-10 and 14 has 10,6 meters, and I guess the K-14 used late war planes as reference...(109K-4 just under 10 meters though) not that it matters much, just wondered.

Just like a lot of other details (makes you wonder about the stuff you can't verify, eh) the front page viewer is a little bit wrong. All my sources (including Jane's, though it's probably biased) list all second generation 109 wings (except H and Z) as 9,924m span. (Long pause http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif ) I'll stop right there. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
