I've had the Me-163 over 40,000 meters,but after 20,000 or so the scenery stops changing. Looking back (F3) there was just a jagged patch of green.

even with unlimited fuel there is a limit i think around 100,000 metres or so

Good! Then we can get a Space Shuttle! I've always wanted to fly an Orbiter... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/88.gif

Orbiter is a superb little sim for anyone who has even the remotest interest in space flight - and it's free !!!

Lots of free addons too.

Great link Tully http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Nice one Tullyhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif How did this simulator slip under the radar?! I can't wait to download it but can you tell me if there are any "bad things" associated with it - spyware, or anything that could damage or destabilize my computer. I'm probably being paranoid, but you know what its like with some "free" software.

Cheers

50 km? That's chump change!
I got a Me-163 to 70+ and climbing!
Unlimited fuel required for lunar travel.

One guy entered the game and asked where I was.
I replied....
"tranquility base here, the Eagle has landed"

Perhaps pilot death over 13,000M should be modeled.
Even with Oxygyn pilots have major problems over 50,000'.
No WWII Fighters that got into service were pressurized.
A few bombers were, Allied and Axis.

Da...

Are you sure no fighters that got into service were pressurized. This link seems to say otherwise.

The software itself is in constant beta and in some circumstances will crash or lock up, but on XP at least it doesn't take the whole computer down, task manager will save the day. On Win9x some of the lockups may require a reboot to recover.

The most recent version is far more stable than when I first saw orbiter, I only recall it locking up once. That once involved close approach to one of the planets with lots of moons with high time compression on, so it was asking my CPU and graphics cards to really kick a lot of tail. I have absolutely no fear of it damaging my system though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

Well, as this should be widely known about IL2 (it's mentioned often enough!!), air density is not modelled above 10,000m.

Basically, the air as is modelled at 10k is the same air modelled at 100k.

I haven't actually tried to climb as high as possible (I would use a BI-1 if I was to do it), but I would think that unless there is a ceiling where you essentially "bump into" it and stop climbing, I would say you could theoretically fly to Saturn, cept for the fact the game would still have you looking back at a jagged bit of green http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif

whit ye looking at, ya big jessie?!?!

Thanks for your response Tully, my free software paranoia is back under controlhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
man, I sure am glad I made that upgrade from 98SE to XP. I used to think SE was stable!http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif
