Spawn with engine OFF but WARMED


Recommended Posts

Can we have an option in the ME to have aircraft spawn on the ground pre-warmed, but engines shut-down/ off please?

It's not at all historical for these combat aircraft to have been OAT cold when the pilots got into them.

It might not matter for the jets, but for the piston-prop warbirds it's pretty critical that we can get airborne quickly to respond to threats.
Now that the new DM limits are impacting engines so much, it is becoming even more noticeable that people are sitting in their cockpits waiting for unnecessarily long warm ups that ground crews would have done before the pilot swung his leg into the pit from the wing.

agreed, frontline alert fighters shouldn't have to spend precious time waiting for engine warm, especially when the enemy can see where you spawn due to DCS' role select screen

What about diluting ?

Start up dilute oil then off you go.

That applies to only a few modules. Engine pre-warming would apply to all.

There is way around. Set ambient temp to 40C 👌

@grafspeeI still don't think oil dilution has been implemented. It takes the P-47 the same amount of time to warm up regardless of whether the oil dilution switch is on or off.

Oil dilution do not change warm up time, only reduce oil pressure. So you can go off at low temps.

Got it! However, oil dilution "In Game" seems to have no effect on oil pressure. With oil dilution ON and oil temps below 40 deg., you can't push more than ~1200-1400rpm or so without oil pressure jumping above redline.
