View Full Version : My il2 AI is weird

Ive read a lot of posts about the ai being stupid in il2. I myself have not noticed much problems with the ai since upgrading to 1946. (Before they would crash into the ground etc on FB)

I don't know about anyone else, but on my pc, it just seems to be western allies that are the dumb ones. For example, i set up one flight where its 4 fw190a9's v the latest Spitfire. Both teams are on average AI skill because i am not very good at flying 190's & needed to practice against a better plane.

First thing is a lot of manouvering on both sides to try & get on each other's tail. After a couple of mins, im after spitfire 4, who twists & turns, dives climbs etc. My fw190 cockpit starts shaking when executing a couple of rolls, i think im going to have to give up on him. But I do eventually kill him. Then my fw190 3 is on fire, still airborne & being chased & fw190 4 is being tailed, so i flyover, chase his chaser away, but fw190 3 has exploded with no one saying "hit the silk" so i think that spitfire 3 is still after him, but hes not, hes about 10metres behind me, shoots at me, then dumbly passes me so i kill him instantly.

Then i go after spitfire 1 which i kill after a crappier dogfight than i had with spitfire 4. Then Spitfire 2 gets behind me & shoots about 1 bullet & explodes, all in about 2 seconds! Seemed that fw190 2 saved my butt, which was quite astonishing since usually in a 109, it takes 2 a little while to cover me.

I don't know why the ai on my team seemed so much better, is this because the spitfire is obsolete compared to late war german planes, or is the FW just so good - or is the Allied Ai just so stupid.

I saved the track file, but i cant attatch it here. If you'd seen it, you'd see that performance was just too good for the "average" ai skill level.

I don't understand Il-2 ai whatsoever. Sometimes your squadron buds will "have your back" most often they don't..

try this for me will you in any plane you fly except the fw-190 because it will probably stall out doing it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


set up a quick mission where it is you agains't two other enemy pilots. Hell make it four if you like..


after the first inital head-on pass or when ever the enemy is closing in on you go into a "spiral climb" See if any of the ai piloted aircraft can match it.

It ALWAYS works for me in any Me-109 agains't p-47's and Mustangs. I just wonder if it is a blind spot in the Ai's ability with other aircraft also?


I would try this myself but my video card crapped out just the other day... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif
