Anyone ever notice when flying next to any of the ships or buildings, that your plane looks like its 10 times bigger!? What's wrong with the scale in this game? A little odd... Maybe they did that unpurpose, but I can't figure out why.

I mean you should be able to fly by a SHIP and see the whole ship slowly in full scale, but the ships are like tiny lego peices, so when you fly by your plane is actually ENORMOUSE compared to the size of the ships, which makes no sense what so ever... Houses as well. And tanks... Park next to a tank and you're airplane is like 100x bigger, thats way off.

It's like this otherwise it would be too easy to shoot at ground targets! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

You must be talking about a different flight sim, or you've got a strange graphics card anomaly? No such scale difference on my PC!

I'd never join a club that would have ME as a member!!.

I saw this in IL2 once. I think it's a very minor issue that occurs rarely. It's probably related to switching to the exterior view.

Just reboot your computer or relaunch IL2 and it should be fine again.

Hmmm odd, it definetely does happen, obviously with the outer view... your plane looks 1000x larger than the rest of the objects, it happens like every single time... I will post screenshots when i get home..

This isn't so minor in my opinion, kind of bothers me.. Do a test I garauntee you'll get the same results.

Maybe they did do it so hitting targets is harder, but thats kinda silly... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif makes it look really odd and fake, grrr.

Yes, something called exaduration /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif I'm sure you've tried it before?

Not familiar with exaduration. Is it anything like gross exaggeration?

Now now guys! Be nice! I think I have the same problem...when flying at around 10,000 feet all the houses and ships and EVERYTHING look really small. Why is this? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Backup your profile and reinstall IL2 then. The problem you mention shouldn't be happening.
