  1. Nice one Chris
  2. I LUUUURRVVVVV Kermie Cam. What a beautiful aeroplane. Bring on Part 3
  3. This weeks BoS update is rather more involved than most being a complete re-install of the game. Worth a read of the dev diary; http://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/168-developer-diary/page-2#entry90146 Before sending my present copy of the game off to the recycle bin I made a copy of my control settings....just in case You can find yours in the game folder/Data/Input.
  4. P40 tailwheel works like this; If you do NOT push on the rudder bar the tail wheel is left locked in place. If you push the rudder more than 30 degrees the tailwheel becomes steerable. You only need that for sharp turns from parking spots and then use the toe brakes too. In the video - when I'm taxiing around the track to the start of the runway, with just a little speed up - I'm just using a spot of rudder to keep it going right. Only about 15% throttle. Oh yeah; once airborne you can close the cooling flaps almost completely. Be prepared to crash - a lot!
  5. Prop-pitch tied to throttle? Sounds like your game is in 'Normal' difficulty mode. This means simplified flight physics and engine management. To check - and to put your game into the same settings you'd use for IL2 1946, CLoD and DCS - go into the QMB screen and down the bottom right is the select realism button. Click on it and then select custom mode and UNCHECK all the boxes except; Object markers Allow spectators Warmed up engine Auto pilot Much nicer! Re-shade settings? I'm using the latest version which is now 3.something or other. Check out post #10 in this thread; https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/26142-reshadesweetfx-help/
  6. P40 manual? There isn't really such a thing inside the game. The link FT gives is a very handy one and gives all the aircraft specs and engine limits. Engine limits are very important on the P40! Here's one of Requiem's excellent guides; One of the oddities of the BoS series is the importance of learning how to taxi. Actually flying the planes is the easy bit. It's mastering the ground handling that takes some practise. The P40 isn't too hard but its a matter of gentle inputs in all things. It has toe brakes which makes things a lot easier but the tail-wheel steering on these things requires....familiarisation Do not be tempted to push the prop-pitch control to 100% as you'll blow the engine just after take-off. Around 85% is sufficient. During the take off run the tail will come up easily but you'll need to give a bit of a tug on the stick to actually get it off the ground. Again, watch the engine settings I'm using. At the end of July/early August there will be a major change to the FM modelling released which will hopefully have a positive effect on the P40 which at the moment - in combination with the strict engine limits we have - is a bit of a handful.
  7. Hi Snacko. The Spit comes from here; https://il2sturmovik.com/store/battle-of-kuban/ It's in early access now.
  8. Another thirteen days? They're just being cruel now.
  9. It would appear two weeks exactly; the sixth of July. To coincide with the end of their "huge summer sale". https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/29773-huge-summer-sale-spitfire-and-blazing-steppe/#entry482856 Gits! This has been the most anticipated plane release by far. https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/168-developer-diary/page-5
  10. Not next week. Bugger!
  11. My God! he's created........Frankenstick Run!!
  12. Yep, it's part of BoK but it's also a 'collector plane' so it will be available to purchase separately.
  13. Next week!
  14. I don't think I can see flaps down Jack. I can see those two big radiators and the flaps on those are fully open. Found this;
  15. Looks like the shows over for now. Had a bit of a heavy night with friends yesterday and when I came down to get the coffee on this morning there was just one chick in the nest. I then had to go and launch a Dreadnought. When I returned the nest was empty. Went and sat in the lower part of the garden and found mum feeding one of her chicks in a nearby tree. Adios!
  16. Here we go; a bit more from this morning. After a pretty wet, windy week it appears we're down to four chicks now and after another week on a high-protein diet of creepy crawlies things are looking pretty cramped in the nest. I think they've been hatched just over a fortnight now. Mum also has a good look at my camera! When she's not feeding them she's spent a great deal of time trying to see off a pair of big, clumsy love struck Pigeons that have tried to set up home next door.
  17. Lovely piccies Jabo Really hope they can get the Sea Vixen up and running again. The pilot deserves it.
  18. Great stuff!
  19. I think you're exactly right Jabo. This morning, in much better light; Definitely mum here. I've left the tripod in place now but will give it a rest for a couple of days as I don't want to disturb 'em too much. I've also loaded kiddo's Super-Soaker with one part ammonia to fifty parts water to keep next door's moggy at bay
  20. More from kitchen door cam. 9 p.m. this evening. I think thats Dad feeding 'em but wifey is convinced it's Ma.
  21. Soon.......
  22. Thanks Chet. I'm pretty sure we're all OK over here just a bit stunned by it all........
