I really like some of changes in the patch so far, but something seems wrong with engine overheating. Before the patch I could open up my radiator cowling to full and runn at 98% throttle without any overheating, but now after the patch all of the planes seem to overheat much faster and cool down much slower.
Is this correct?? Have we just been spoiled by the way it was pre-patch or is something wrong with the engine overheating??

Did you run your tests on the Desert map ?
If so - try them on a winter map http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

There is a difference in Temperature which leads to faster over-heating on the desert map http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

If you mean feet, then that really isn't high enough. If you mean meters, then something might be up.
