Yep, collision probability pretty high...

The typical results of a rapid execution of the Raptor Maneuvre: Heavily damaged aircraft nosed over in the middle of nowhere. In the background are two Jerries which were kind enough not to strafe me.

The failed form of landing is presented by Task Force to the left, while the correct one is displayed by myself to the right.

I forgot how much torque these rotary engines have.

Raptor breaks his engine and returns to base in a rather permanent manner.

Oberon encounters an enemy bi-plane, is wounded by the first shot and manages to land behind friendly lines.

Task Force on the other hand decides to land in no mans land...

Arclight strafes the enemy airfield and returns to base.

And with a nice dodge between two hangars, parks up safely.

I think we've found the forefathers of the Lolwaffles! :D

How you guys enjoying the game? And what settings are you flying with? :88)

Arclight 09-05-11 05:37 PM

Quite enjoying it, and flying full realism. :yep:

http://i268.photobucket.com/albums/j...__22_11_47.jpg

Kinda blurry since someone busted a cap in my bottom a little earlier, but you can kinda see a speck with a white exhaust trail chasing another speck, which would be Oberon chasing his kill, and another speck in a field just off the edge of the wing, which would be Raptor.

Raptor1 09-05-11 05:39 PM

It's much better than I expected, actually. Anyway...

What is this, a coordinated take-off? Back to flight school!

Oberon 09-05-11 05:43 PM

I believe it's on high realism, radiators, not sure about auto-mixture because the Albatros D.V doesn't have mixture apparently.

I'm quite enjoying it, it feels a lot like putting on an old pair of gloves not worn since OFF was free (Phase 2 IIRC), however the handling is certainly a par above OFF at that phase, the Albatros is a much more forgiving aircraft than the Spad.

Multiplayer is beautiful, no warping, no major lag, everything ran just lovely.

The only gripe I have is the view panning, but that has been fixed with Newview, which I'm going to have to tweak because I don't like the blind spot at about 170 to 200 degrees behind me...I just know it's going to hide an SE.5 one day.

Some screenshots from the second mission, including my first kill! :rock:

Took me most of the day, but there we go. :rock:

Arclight 09-06-11 03:17 PM

Nice. :yep:

I've come to the conclusion that Albatross > SPAD.

Schroeder 09-06-11 05:29 PM

OK, and now again for the idiots (that would be me...) how do I aim in this sim? Is there something like the Il2 shift+F1 trick? I was just doing the training mission where you have to shoot down that German balloon and my gun sights in the SPAD were obscured by the central pillar of the wind shield. I couldn't even see my target when diving at it and the game seems to have a habit of ignoring key commands to move the head when track ir is active. So how do you aim?:damn:

Arclight 09-06-11 06:02 PM

If you have TIR, displace your head to line up the sights. ;)

Should be a slider in the hangar to set the 0-distance.

It mostly comes from experience though. Maneuvering the plane while looking about and then trying to line up the sight is not practical. You'll get a feel where the bullets go and just aim like that.

(for example, in the Albatross I use the fat part of the center post in close range lead turns, can see it in the shots above)

Raptor1 09-06-11 06:17 PM

I haven't seen a button that lines you up with the gunsight like in IL-2. Usually I aim by whatever is convenient, since the Albatros D.V, for example, doesn't have a real gunsight (Well, there is one you can add onto it, but it's useless).

Oh, and do note that the SPAD has awful visibility. The upper wing and the fuselage just obscure everything (though the cockpit and instruments are pretty fancy). The Albatros is much better in that regard.

Collision damage caused by Hunter's aircraft during his mad attempt to kill the SPAD I was chasing...

...which escalated after a few minutes to this...

I'd call your insurance provider. I think you have a good case to sue :D

I would if I wasn't dead...

Biggles 09-07-11 05:29 AM

Whenever I notice I have a structural wing damage I usually lower my speed to a minimum, head for as low altitude as I possibly can get without snuffing it and get outta the combat!

Also, every aircraft has it advantages-cons. The SPAD's don't have the best visibility no, but they do have the speed and if handled correctly, you'll be able to get out of trouble most of the times. However, as I stated before, the SPAD VII has a very nasty spin, which I've never been able to get out of yet, so be warned!

LoL at Hunter!

Herr-Berbunch 09-07-11 06:48 AM

Downloaded demo, quick test last night on low settings (only GTS250 :stare:) and it seemed lovely!

Hunter - that claim is great :yeah:
