Default [REPORTED]Pilot blacking out bug

After latest update the 109 pilot blacks out if the plane takes even minimal damage ( I took 3 hits from a half track ) I ran some tests in a simple mission and after the pilot blacks out the plane seems to be vibrating hard as if its pulling massive Gs but its flying straight and true. I even repeated the same test in a Spit and it took huge damage no blackout.

To recreate just place 10 excellent A.I half tracks and over fly them in a 109.

It seems that it has something to do with the engine being damaged.. It happens in the Dora too, but with no pilot black-out just a lot of shaking that I can feel in the FFB stick.

I don’t mind the vibration if my plane has been damaged, the instant black out from the damage is more what I’m pointing out. It’s like the plane thinks it’s pulling huge G forces even though it’s not. I have done test after test and it’s the same you take a few hits the lights go out and you hear a noise as if you are tumbling very very fast.

I experienced it too in the K4. Very annoying.

Had it as well yesterday - the plane starts kinda osciallating and g-forces go repeatedly from around +15 to -15 within a split second.

I´ve attached a track file.


I also reviewed the flight in Tacview - but Tacview didn´t show the same forces after the hit and furthermore the tacview replay endet soon after.


Seems to me that this might be a pilot kill which isn´t accordingly recognized / triggered in the game?

Hey guys I think maybe something from the new DM probably slipped in that should be disabled, we are adding new feedback to aircraft and pilot damage, and it's possible it's wigging out the old DM. But as BN said, we will have it looked at.

Thanks for the heads-up, gentlemen. Very much appreciated. Trying to avoid fire until it gets sorted



Have a nice weekend.
