OK, I haven't played IL*2 since April because I nearly chopped off the last inch of a finger (long story) but now it's back to about 100% healed and curling my hand around the throttle quadrant doesn't hurt any more, so I'm wondering: I see lots of 1.1b this, and 1.1b that but what is the general thought on it? I have a 56k connection, so to download it I'll probably ask a friend with high speed internet to dl it and put it on a CD for me.

So let me hear the good the bad and the ugly

So you can't read for yourself? /i/smilies/16x16_robot-wink.gif

My advice is to wait for a couple of weeks until the community has solidized their views on it.

Everything is much closer to reality. it was an excellent patch. i have a small sound issue when at idle. but since im hardly ever at idle, it really isnt much of a problem

OK....me and a friend went down to Virginia to get a car of his (we're 600 miles away from Va). The car is a 1970 Dodge Dart 340 4 speed, with factory hood scoops. In pretty good shape, actually, but partially disassembled, and it's been sitting in a storage unit since 1987. We had a lot of cleaning up and throwing away to do before we even reached the car to put the body panels back on and push her out the door.
Our biggest problem was a spare engine, a badly running 318 that he had bought for spare parts on a different car he owned (he was in the Navy at the time and had this car and another one that actually ran and got him around). Well, there was no place to put the engine, and we couldn't pick it up and put it in the rented truck we had to haul the car back home, and we couldn't leave it. So we decided to yank it apart and throw it away, in a big dumpster nearby, in pieces.
The thing was, he is about 7" taller than me, and the lip of the dumpster is about shoulder level on me. When we went to heave the engine block in the dumpster, I needed to change how I was holding my end of the block. he thought I was dropping it, and grabbed the whole thing and leaned waaayyyy back. His back was arched so badly I couldn't imagine how he COULDN'T fall over backwards, with this 190 pound engine block on his chest, so, I reached over, and grabbed ahold of the block, and heaved it into the dumpster.
Problem was, He was throwing it in at the same second. The block went in the dumpster, and before I could get my hand out of the way, it came crashing down on me. It hit something else in there and sort of jumped back about a foot or so. One finger was in a cylinder bore, and that finger got chopped between the edge of the bore, and the lip on the dumpster. Blood SHOT out of the opposite side of my finger, all over my pants and my other hand. We both thought the finger had been sliced off (it was right on a knuckle, too). It looked like it was hanging on by a chunk of meat, dangling at a weird angle. I pinched the finger tip, and i could still feel it, but the knuckle seemed liquefied- I could clearly see into the finger. I couldn't straighten it out.
At the hospital, they gave me stitches and sent me on my way. The next day, we packed up the rest of the car stuff, pushed the car onto the trailer and drove home. I drove about 250 miles that night. We got to his home in about 13 hours. Then I immediately hopped in my car, and drove the hour back to my place, to call my doctor. I saw a specialist, and the tendon in my finger got clipped, not quite cut. Two months of immobilisation and waiting for it to heal fixed it without surgery, but it was a crap shoot if I would need surgery later- I didn't. The finger just plain wouldn't move when the brace came off, but in a few days it lossened up enough to use it, and now, I can do almost anything I used to with it. It will keep getting better but it will probably be a few more months before it's 100%. It's about 95% now, and they tell me the last bit is the hardest to get back.



So...tell me all about the patch

Wow!

Okay I'll give you a few impressions, downloaded it this morning here in Florida, and flew a good number of *offline* quicky tests....strong emphasis on the quicky though.

Much more fun to fly now, more touchy than before. Landing is kinda scary.

Just scared a Dora into a spin and he/she crashed from 6000 meters. Nice smoke from crashed planes lasts longer. Don't listen to the crash smoke/fps whiners, even a FMB dogfight with about 80 aircraft there was not enough smoke density to touch a single frame rate.

Trees have less grafix hit.

P~47 Fw~190 I~16 are not so uber/porked as the case may be. Still must do climb tests for FB~109 Email and I~16 and see if they got chopped.

AI seems....well they fly more interestingly, can't describe it right now. They do try to make corrections for their 6 shooting so they won't waste ammo, but they kinda seem to gyrate around doing so, wasting more ammo. Seems they worked on this. I dunno. Must Make More Tests. On the other hand, even on ace setting the ace seem very docile, just wanting to be left alone. But that was 1 v 1 tests so who knows. I did notice that my stock (never changed in weeks) 80 aircraft low-framerate FMB dogfight seemed to come out even for red and blue. Pre~Patch my minimap showed blue icons totally dominating the area, reds mostly ran out of ammo, but now reds do better. Only one test doing that though, but still its the first time reds had come out even with the blue, so I assume the results have something to do with the Patch.


Anyway you should still be able to fly finger four formation, so like what's the problem? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I agree that 3 pointers are more feasible now and that before, in FB or IL2, most of the time if you attempted to do it, the plane would stall out first and drop a wing, rather than land on 3 points. Some planes were worse than others. In RL ( I think ) in a Me109, you almost had to make a 3 point landing to land safely but I don't know if that's really true or not. Just something I read once. Something about how the plane would yaw and go off the runway if you didn't. I forget if it was left or right yaw. Because you needed the tail wheel to bite in for steering it more effectively?? Rudder alone supposedly was not effective enough.

This is GREAT, the airplanes falling from the sky are amazing now. Saw a MiG with half wing shot off falling down, smoke trail not a pure straight line but with a little wobble twist to the smoke trail.

Just did another 4 v 4 AI test, quite aggressive, but patiently aggressive. Passive aggresive? They do seem to shoot better. I dunno. Must Make More Tests.
