    Storm of War

    A shaky yes here, but I would welcome (need) help with the small stuff like landings, formation flying, dog fighting, engine management, and so on and on.

    DCS Spitfire - Refining your technique

    I don't think he posted them for his rudder. I just used the same curves for the rudder. as he had for the elevator.

    Here is a screenshot of my C:\Users\Tom\Documents\1C SoftClub\il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover folder after re saving load outs.

    I understand it completely. The problem is it makes no difference, the game does not see it in that folder. So I deleted it and re entered load outs in game just to see where and if there would be another user ini file created and there wasn't one. Even though it saved my custom load out. There was no new ini file created anywhere. So I am wondering where and how the game is saving my custom load out.
  6. So, it used to be you could save your custom loadouts in your user.ini file and be able to drop them into the main folder of the game and vola! You would save yourself a ton of work doing it in the game. Well it doesn't work for me anymore. I still have default load outs. I past them into my C:\Users\Tom\Documents\1C SoftClub\il-2 sturmovik cliffs of dover folder and also I have tried pasting into C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover Blitz and C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover folder and nothing works. Anyone have any ideas? I uploaded a sample of my user ini file maybe its something in it that doesnt work after the "update" user.ini

    DCS Spitfire - Refining your technique

    Well, After using your user defined curves for both elevator and rudder, I can know at least takeoff in a reasonable straight line and sometimes even land without totally losing control. Thanks for the help.

    Thanks for the advice Tom Unfortunately I still can't takeoff, let alone land with the silly thing.I find the 109 easier to handle on the ground. I used to be able to take off with it. That was several patches ago though.

    We need to talk...

    I can appreciate what you guys are going through with this topic. IL2 still does have the most content of any WWII sim out there. It is going to go away at some point. Just like Janes WWII fighters and the like did because of the lack of Windows support in one way or the other. I was not a fan of BOS when it first came out; indeed I fully regretted buying it. That has all changed because they have not only improved the flight models, but the graphics are much better, especially with the addition of the Kuban map. I very much enjoy flying BOX and a number of us fly almost every evening. With the future addition of the Battle of Bodenplatte which includes 8 Aircraft (P-51D, P-47D, Spitfire Mk.IX, Tempest Mk.V, Bf 109 G-14, Bf 109 K-4, Fw 190 A-8 and Me 262) and 2 Collector Planes (P-38L and Fw 190 D-9) that can be bought separately, I think, currently, that is where the future of WWII simming lies. Someday maybe DCS will get its act together and fix the horrible damage modes on the AI aircraft, (using simple fight models for them) until then it BOX for me. And but the way about DCS and complexity, you always have the option to use “auto start”. I never thought I could fly the A10C but I learned with the help of some in the community (that would be Capt. Jack) I found the experience to be very enjoyable. Any one of you that have or thinking about getting BOX, as Jack said, I, Perfesser, Spaulding, Gustang, wingflyer, are flying almost every evening, we’d love to see you there. I never thought I would be saying all this about a sim I fully rejected from the outset. All I know is that whatever you all decide; I will be all in with my financial support for the Dogz as always.
