Cruising at economical settings (0 boost, 2200 RPM) at 25,000 feet now causes the engine to overcool...

Would really want to know what "objective Facts" compare to early Model now changed so drastic? Or is it also simplify (no feel) like our new Ground Physic?

I used to often run at 0 boost 1900. not now. But we have drop tanks so my fuel conservation days a few now anyway. I made 2 hrs. I made 400 miles. Now I am cooking with grease and rockin' the throttle.
I wanted snow so I lowered the temperature of the day. Super cool city at -10C. Not good.
I am finding -2C tolerable but a lot of work diluting oil. At least a person could dogfight well in it now. It is an improvement for sure.
Thanks to those that are making this Spitfire better and better.

Everything has improved since the early release version.
It would be easier if you listed what concerned you before and we could respond to that.
Overall it is getting more and more realistic in it's behavior.
Cooling is solved making dogfighting possible I suppose.
Wing breaking is less.

It is getting more and more fine tuned as I see it.

Yo-Yo: "Немного подняли эффективность радиаторов по объективным показателям" which google translates: "A little raised the efficiency of radiators for objective indicators."
The direction ED is taking will do more harm than good..

What me Concern is we have before 180mph and in can now climb with 80mph that's not a little bit?
So either we where completely wrong before what you might be call complete unrealistic, and was before heavy defended by yoyo as no Bug...

Dogfight was before pretty easy in the Spit so long you don't do any Prob Hang Flying...

Only want to know as objective Fact we are still on DCS level with cooling of the Spit, or what this new Information changed this so drastic..

It does not overheat easy now. You can drive it very hard.
I even caught up to a 109 but I had to get over 18,000 feet to do it.

Objectively it doesn't snap the wings off near as easy although a bomb load may affect that.
You don't pass out if you breathe on the stick forward anymore.

I always climb at 180+.
Even 160 doesn't feel right in a climb to me.
80? I'll have to try that.
