- It's ok, I will respawn.


And, by the way, in 1 g shooting you, generally, have LESS time to correct. Lead firing in turnfight gives much more time than barrage fire or especially head-on attack.
The difference it's not that big.
But I completely understand your point with head on attack. And I agree there are many more case where the little addition of elevation is not perfect. But the pilot could have the same difficulty with the original fixed settings.

As I said I change them to try to see the difference. But as I have years of flying on this one and against it, I know, when flying it, 99% of my air battle are turn fight or end in turn fight. That's why I tried this setting as it seems to follow my way to use Spitfire. And it work and I'm still able to make good AG attack with gun and good 1G shoot. The difference is not big but is far more confortable 99% of the tim I fly it. But I completely agree that it's my personnal preference and I totally agree that you and some other people could dislike this setting completely. The discussion about this could continue similarly with topic like "Blue is the best color ! No I prefer red"

We could have the same argument with the D9 as I just did the opposite. I made it better for 1G close shoot as it wasn't set for this in game. As I have 10+ years using german planes in some squadron with really hard training (following procedure and tactics of this time), I get used to never shoot at distance over 250m. Now I have the capacity to now exactly where to place the sight and when to start to shoot. But the original setting did make shoot almost impossible (for me). I make some flight with the D9 and almost didn't miss a shoot since I modify those valor. Setting the gun to shoot with less elevation because in opposition to Spitfire, I almost never do turn fight with D9 and only 1G shoot is a great thing to me.

(It's funny but, yes, I prefer original setting of D9 on Spit and the one of Spit on D9 ^^ )

If I imagine I go ask a squadron leader by telling him I'm used to shoot closer than the plane is actually set, I don't know what he could tell me. And I think only squadron leader of that time would know what to answer. Maybe he would tell no. Maybe he would warn me or try to explain me that is (for him) a bad idea. I don't know. Maybe he could say "Ok, go set your guns and come back before 10Pm"
On this forum, i think no one could tell a definitive answer about this as all squadron leader are different.

It's a difficult toppic to understand how it should be open to modification or lock in some way. I agree. But if you go for the idea of preset. It could end up terribly wrong or be completely nice.

There are so many possibilities of variation and so much variation occur during war it's hard to have a game with a complete and correct gun setting preset list. I think there are no solution 100% realist. But we have now the less one. Having no possibility to slightly change those two angles make it not correct. And I think that is a fact.

That's why I think pilot should be able to set completely personnalised gun setting** (and maybe yes having some preset to help them). And I think the Mission maker should have the possibility to lock or unlock convergence for each plane in there mission. Unlock so game use pilot personnal one or lock and use a preset the mission maker choose. This would be the best way as you could have preset if you prefer or personnalisation.

**By gun setting, I mean the two angles :
azimuth_initial
elevation_initial
(With obvious limitation)

Ps : Some talk about having feature lock/unlock linked to a K/D ratio or linked to a level. It's a way to work. But lock/unlock option in simulation world was never a good idea. (almost kill and kill some game/sim not only in aviation). That's why I think it would be a bad idea.
Or maybe having the possibility to unlock after flying x number or hours in the plane ? But nothing related to a level or to a K/D ratio. => This turn flight sim into plane FPS

Exporting "funtionality" of other "simulator"......

Where did I mean that ?

I ask to have a realistic feature.
To make it better if possible than any other sim (that how DCS could become the best)
And I said I hope DCS will not do like some other by using level to unlock feature.
I just give an alternative possibility ...

Where did I say let's copy what they do there ?

Thats is not a "realistic" feature. In fact a Ace has not gain "privilegies" over a fighter wing commander. A realistic "features" can be get responsabilities under a filght, squadron, etc by rank and "force" to the player make the "planning" and paper work as Wags talk about the dream to recreate a squadron manage rol on some day.

And about a "export" was a game (sorry to break rules) with you can harmonize guns (WW2 plane mechanical simulator), but you put the standard convergence to all guns based on the "standard pattern".

*vids*
Know it by name but didn't try. Didn't know there was a firing range to set up gun in it. (Please don't ban my comment because of this : But a similar thing would be awesome in DCS !)
But you know, Simulation is similar to other simulation. If not that would be weird.

There are Spitfire in every WW2 sim. Since it's not a copy. It's just part of every WW2 sim to simulate this plane.

But I don't mean to copy anything from other game. I hope to see just the better way to simulate things as DCS clearly say on each module : "We make simulation of xxx module that never get an equivalent before". About Flight model it's a fact (and it's why DCS is attractive). But about other feature that not the case now. Will be better and better (I believe it as I keep flying and buying new module). And as I previously said, modification of the plane (gun, miror addition, ammo belt, ...) is one of the most iconic feature of WW2. same plane on two different front were so much different.
