How it exactly work?

For example when flying a Yak-9 when I go over 3200 meters (more less) the engine start trowing oil(?) then reducing mixture it work ok, however I dont found much difference when using values like 20% 120% etc.

I will add that the modelling of mixture in this sim could use some work.

I wouldn't worry about that too much. There's plenty of things that are far more important that could do with 'some work'

I think you are wrong F6_Ace. Having innacurate mixture control in the game is as unreal as having an AC climbing 4 times faster than it should! Mixture control should be as important as FM in this game! The reason the germans like the kommandoger√¬§t was because it helped them concentrate on other things in the heat of combat. Russian planes and some other early allied AC didnt have this luxury and they shouldnt in the game either! I would rather see it be fixed!!

Flakwalker,

When the mixture becomes too rich, I.E. too much fuel and not enough air, the engine cannot burn all of the heavy hydrocarbons which make up a large part of gasoline. These unburned hydrocarbons are then expelled from the engine in the exhaust, which produces that brown/gray smoke pouring out of the engine.

Hope this helps,
Chris

More intricate modelling would definitely be welcome. However, I've used this feature more than once to outrun a less-attentive VVS pilot while sniffing the ozone.
