Could we please have a pre warmup setting in the options for the WW2 planes. Similar to the instruments already aligned setting for the jets so we have an option to not sit on the ground for 10 minutes waiting for the engine to warm up every time we get a new plane.

No, I would like an option in special for the aircraft to be pre warmed similar to how there are options under the AV-8B harrier and M2000C mirage for the instruments to be pre aligned. This way you can still enjoy starting the plane up without having to sit on the ground doing nothing waiting for the engine to warm up. That way people who prefer to warm the engine up can still have that option as well.

Okay, I see where you're coming from and get why because I like doing start up too, but isn't that going to result in an illogical scenario?

 

The other aircraft in your examples don't require an engine start for their instruments to be warmed up. Ground crew do it and leave the aircraft plugged into the mains until the pilot is ready for a flight, at which point the engine is started. It's representing rapid alert aircraft rather than cold and dark.

 

For the Anton, you're asking for the ground crew to start and run up the engine to temperature, keep it running so it stays at proper temp, then to shut it off when the pilot appears so the pilot (you) can restart it immediately. Even ignoring any fuel burn, that's a kinda odd scenario, right? Why wouldn't the crew just leave it running so the pilot gets into a warm and already running plane?

Planes are typically placed on servers on the ramp with engine off. So thats why I would like a setting for the engine to be pre warmed. If it had to be an option that had the engine running for you on start up for realism sake then I would be fine with it; As long as its a client side option that works on cold start aircraft on servers. The main goal is to have the option to not have to wait 8 or so minutes every time you get a new plane on a server.

While I don't know how the ground crew did it with the 190, there where several methods available for the ground crew to warm up engines of a plane without starting the engine itself.

Yes, but this way of describing it makes it seem a bit silly.
In reality, ground crews DID conduct the warm-up of aircraft, before the pilots walked/ drove out to the flight line.
This was done especially for aircraft which needed to be at high states of readiness, or were to be used on dawn sorties. The warmups would often happen before sunrise. Then engines would then be shut down until the pilot arrived. It would take quite some time for the aircraft too fully cool back down again.

The pilot would then do all the safety/ pre-flight checks before starting the engine.

This is the sort of thing we are talking about, from Pierre Closterman's "The Big Show" book:

If it's realistic as an option (it appears that it is) I am all for it. I imagine it's really obnoxious for the multiplayer folks who can't time accelerate.
