The damage on the Heinkel, in particular in the cockpit, doesn't look like .303 hits to me....
does anyone else agree? Considering the placement of the Hurri, I'd imagine that it made the damage.

I doubt it has changed. The free 4.10 patch for Il-2 has this feature btw.

This is the second time I heard a reference to this patch. Have I missed something? Did 4.10 come out when I was away on holiday?

As long as I can turn off the image of the virtual pilot, then fine :). I fall into the category of "some people" in that I don't want to see my virtual hands and feet. Plus, I'm not sure any gauges are insignificant.

No way SoW will be able to model size 14 shoes anyway!

Best of luck in the move Mr. Maddox. More importantly, I hope things at home improve. In the scheme of things, despite the great comment about the closeness to the finished project, home takes precedence.

I know some schmoo posting on an anonymous forum doesn't add a lot of weight behind well wishing because of the anonymity, but you've brought a lot of entertainment and increased the desire for knowledge in an unknown portion of WW2. So while we aren't personal friends, your 'relation to the sim community' is an important one. Your communications have fueled a commitment to 1C/Maddox, your creation and community members.

Take care and I'll continue to hope for a great outcome for your home. To me that's more important than light effects, serial numbers and game release dates.

Fixing some bugs, last tweaking, copying the DVD's, sending it out to the world. End of November I guess. I hope 1C will make some sort of copyprotection. Even though we on this forum will pay for Sow Bob, there are unfortunately many idiots that will try to copy it.

It's not that they look like lasers, it's that they are moving in perfect pairs.

MG's do not stay in synch since there will always be one that starts firing first, or one that has a slightly higher rate of fire.

OK, sorry for the scramble then ;) I agree that the definitely should be more out of sync, as long as you don't say they should zig-zag "like they do in the gun cam movies" :)

It's just not right to look down & see nothing. Am I right?

Great update by the way!

no, you're not.

I was thinking of that while doing the math example but I was a bit unsure about the actual "speed limit" of a normal "non sub calibre" bullet, ie if the bullet has a built in problem with aerodynamic compression etc that makes 1000-1100 m/s extremely hard and that the bullet lose speed very fast after leaving the muzzle... But it sure is supersonic so I guess you are right!

Having Red Orchestra 2 and BOB next year (which is most likely) will give me an amazing orgasm.
