IL-2 but this is one of few games that ED's mods really hate.

Okay, good to know. To be clear, I haven't booted up the newest release of that other sim in a very long time, though I had my fun with it back in the day. I've always considered ED's work to be far more professional, which is why I'd love to see the WWII modules become more robust. I hear there are things being worked on in that direction.

Yes, they have been working on a new damage and cooling model for some time now. I hope it's worth the wait though...

Did anybody notice missing prop disc? A8 has one which adds a lot to immersion and overall visuals.

K-4 has prop disc but very very transparent.

And because I was being lazy. Excuses, Excuses. But basically it seems that I can reduce throttle to very near the first maker above idle and accelerate at level flight from nearly any speed to around 450km/h. I don't accelerate as fast, mind you, but I've never experienced something like that.
I fly bf-109 k-4 quite often, i can say that plane will slow down when throttle is reduced, but because rpm governor is linked to throttle it will reduce rpm to minimal rpm that mean that prop's blades will be at high pitch angle, this is reducing drag by a lot. So K-4 will slow down but not as fast as spitfire or p-51. It always give me feeling that plane is not slowing down

Yes, but the 2 I mentioned are getting more and more popular. LFDM is almost full every evening and Storm of War is getting up there as well. You should probably get in there right now, before all slots are taken

There is only one way to get good in multiplayer and thats by flying in multiplayer. You are probably going to have your ass kicked at first. But you will learn and improve if you are patient and commited. If you are not being shot down then you are not getting better. You have to take risks and try new manuevers/tricks if you want to become good and sometimes that new manuever you try does not work. But you are learning and getting better.

In my opinion multiplayer is the only way to go. the community is very helpful and if you jump on discord/teamspeak(most multiplayer servers have a discord server) and fly with other players they will help you out. What makes multiplayer so much fun is not just the increased challenge of flying againts other people but also fly with team mates.

The multiplayer servers that are most popular use Normandy and assets pack. I would also recommend getting SRS(Its free) so you can communicate with other players in servers that use it(storm of war is one).

Anyway, multiplayer is the only way to go in DCS in my opinion. It's hands down the most fun by far.
