  1. Something I noticed with 2.1 is that the HUDs of different aircraft often give off a very nice ambient bloom, most noticeable in low light conditions. The only problem is that this bloom only looks "right" when fully zoomed in on it, and when zoomed out to a comfortable FOV the HUD can often look quite thick and chunky, making it hard to read and rather ugly to look at. Pictures provided below.
  2. I'm not sure how many of us in the sim community branch into other video games but I can honestly say with confidence that 2.1 has some of the most realistic looking graphics out there, massive props to ED for their hard work! :D
  3. Interesting! I'm a huge history buff and I love to learn about the smaller details like this so I appreciate all the replies :smartass:
  4. I've been looking for resources on P-51 markings, specifically during D-Day, even more specifically about invasion stripes. Personally I love the look of the black and white stripes both on the bottom and top of the wing, take Crazy Horse (one of my favorites) for example The same can be seen on other Stangs like Quicksilver, but I never see them in actual historical pictures, more commonly I see the black and white stripes on the bottom of the wing and a single black stripe on the top, as shown here Are the stripes that we see on Crazy Horse and Quicksilver and others historically

  7. It's also worth noting that now when I try to access the loadout page in the mission editor THAT takes an crazy amount of time to load too, I really don't know what to do here I'm spending more time waiting for the game to load than I do actual flying.
  8. Alright, tried updating GPU drivers and excluded both the eagle dynamics folder and run.exe in the alpha folder from windows defender, still takes 12+ minutes to load even the simplest mission. :cry:
  9. Now that you mention it I think I recall windows deffender taking a big chunk of my resources in task manager, I'll deffinetely try messing with that when I can. And unfortunately I'm stuck with an SSD but I have 1.5 on the same one and that loads without trouble. Also I don't know if it's significant but in the list of modules at the bottom of the main menu ever module says it's version 2.5 except NTTR which says 2.4
  10. So I haven't played 2.0/NTTR for quite a while and I decided to update the other day and try it out. First nothing loaded at all, missions, mission editor, any of that, so I did a quick repair, deleted my 2.0 saved game stuff and tried again. That seemed to fix the mission editor (although it still takes a pretty long time to access the loadout page for some reason) but I still experience massive loading times stuck on the "Please Wait" part as well as stuttering when I actually get to play. Anyone got any ideas? :helpsmilie: Specs: GTX960, 8GB RAM (DDR4), Intel i5 6600K 3.50GHz
  11. So I'm hoping to work for my pilots license in the near future, however living in the bay area means that isn't going to come cheap so every dollar counts. What kind of stuff would come with the best price? I love the simplicity of the Piper cub and I wouldn't mind having a taildragger. How is the price of a Cessna or something more like that compared to a cub? Alternatively I'd love to have a biplane but I feel like something more on the vintage side would cost a bit more. I'm asking on here because when I searched online I didn't get very solid prices, everything seemed to fluctuate a bit so
  12. I'm absolutely loving the new canopy lighting effect, and I really like how the paint is more scrappy and chipped, makes it feel more authentic like a real rushed wartime aircraft :D
  13. Quick question, will we be getting IFF interrogate? Or will we be relying on that handy dandy camera in the nose ;) Also how far can the camera effectively see?
  14. I think it's really funny that a bit after I post this leatherneck shows us the viggen which has exactly the same effect you and I are looking for :P
  15. Wow! Some great discussion going on :P I really wish that the game offered more fitting missions for the 190 instead of dogfight scenarios, some BnZ training would be really cool ;)
