he also said the other planes were like balloons floating by, sounds like he had a very high end computer to render a entire formation of B-17's with no stuttering. Probably had 3dgunners=0.
I would guess the bombers off line are like real bombers, (except the few that try and dog fight you), and it was just leading the target, and flying off, leaving the balloons behind. And avoiding P-51's. Bombers on line make it hard to hit them by flopping around, but their gunners also can't get you too easy., and one bomber against a fighter if the fighter takes his time, is no contest.
I really wish that they would allow the QMB formation of four online, and let one guy flip between planes as they get damaged. Just three people flying bombers would be a impressive formation of 12.

Cheers, Do you fly on line as Jumoschwanz?

I'm il-2Crew online now, (much better name), & currently fly on the AleXserver, say hi if you are on there some time.

I have not flown on Hyperlobby as Jumoschwanz for years since I had a dispute with some of it's moderators, but I still used that handle when joining by direct IP, such as Vinni_Pu server or some others that were not on Hyperlobby.

I have not flown online hardly at all for a year or so after a member of a squad I belonged to for years died of cancer, he was the one who ran our server and after he was gone the squad quit flying.

Maybe before the snow melts this spring I will try getting online, but I am rusty and I have trouble with my eyes now, I can not see good at the distance a computer monitor is usually at from my eyes. Just like in real life, if a IL2 pilot can not see good he is screwed....

S!

Vinni Puh (a Russian server) was unfortunately neutered by long absence, the removal of 99% of the maps outside the 109/190 vs La/Yak formula and lack of HyperLobby presence, so there aren't any players.
I welcome AI planes on LetkaOrel maps for two reasons:
1. Deficit of human players. Sometimes the server is just empty.
2. My eyes are not sharp anymore so I avoid dogfights and prefer to intercept bombers. Just wish there were AI escorts to spice things up.
3. AI bring more fun and diversity. For example, hunting for floatplanes.
Agree that many ground targets are soft. But again, with few pilots in the air anything "tougher" would mean no chance to win the map.

Is Vinni Puh still online? I was active there long time ago. Stopped to follow around 2014 as too many players used the game for "political" discussions.

I'm still around, though the Pigs rarely fly anymore.

Still have '46 on the hard drives, and take up one of the old planes every once in a while.

Did another video... I have few more prepared and will put them up too... what really surprised me after all these years is just how hectic some of those fights was... some stuff were really disorienting but we seemed to do ok, keeping eye on target and also checking our sixes for possible threats.
This vid is nothing really special, the one thing that separates it from majority of my flights online is that I was uber reckless and followed another plane for prolonged period of time all the way up to his base... and still lived to tell the tale. In most cases peeps that used to do that ended up in the dirt .

EDIT #1:



LA-5 vs Bf-109Gs... just uploaded it. I guess from time to time I'll put video of some nice fights for the old times sake. We've had a blast back there and then.
