I have never seen a game were the damage is so localized and so well rendered. Many have criticized the game but there are so many positive points that the negatives ones are easily forgotten. Look at this picture I have taken after a ground attack mission where I did fly a little too low and to near the explosion of some objective. Not only did I lose part of my plane but the plane developed an oil leak and it was not long before my engine did run roughly. Thanks IL2 team.

I think "easily forgotten" may be a bit of an overstatement, but it is certainly true that the damage model is second to none. I only seldomly see the same damage and when I look at screenies from others it is always stuff I havent't seen before...

The damage model is indeed one of the best features of the sim, although I can't say if it's better than DCS:A-10.

I personally love nursing a damaged aircraft back home, desperately checking the gauges and listening to a stuttering engine or two.

If the rest of the sim were on part with the damage model I'd be a very happy simmer.

I do not like the modern air games. The jet planes are too easy to fly or to technical to enjoy if realistically rendered. It is my opinion and I do share it! They have absolutely not the same feeling than the WW2 prop airplanes with their limitations. I did play some a long time ago the last one was Lock on a nice one also. Have fun with the games you like.

I'm just being the DCS ambassador here, but I'd say that modern aircraft certainly have limitations, especially within the context of symmetrical warfare. An A-10 may be easier to fly than a Spitfire, but then again I'm pretty sure you'll never have to try aerial refuelling in the Spitfire, for example. It's true that modern and historical sims differ greatly, but I've found that mastering flying skills or combat manoeuvres in either is equally rewarding.

I agree, nursing an aircraft to a airfield can be as exciting as a good dogfight, perhaps more cerebral.

Here are a few more flying wrecks! The damage modelling is just sooooo good...

















































So it was that the war in the air began. Men rode upon the whirlwind that night and slew and fell like archangels. The sky rained heroes upon the astonished earth. Surely the last fights of mankind were the best. What was the heavy pounding of your Homeric swordsmen, what was the creaking charge of chariots, besides this swift rush, this crash, this giddy triumph, this headlong sweep to death?

H. G. Wells, 'The World Set Free,' 1914.

Maybe I'm morbid, but I'm loving these pics! The fact that the skin is peeled back, exposing the structure underneath...the flames, smoke, bullet holes, missing control surfaces...

They do have a wonderful-bordering-on-insane level of detail for the damage model. I had a good time destroying aircraft even on the ground (via script). Here's a recap of the parts you can change the state of in an aircraft:

plus an add-in to do this to yourself mid-air etc

I do hope they get the patches out soon, as reading the old posts makes me want to scratch an itch of some cool things to quickly code up.

Yeah, I know the feeling, but here at SimHQ the tradition is that people only post to b!tch about the sim, not to show appreciation of the effort by actual fans of the sim.

With that said I'm finished with reposting 1C update images, for non-1C-forum-members: nobody in the SimHQ forums gives a damn' anyway.

Being negative is so much more work than being positive, when criticizing you have to work and then you must rebuild everything you have to work again this is too much effort. Be positive it is less work. pilot

I am glad to be a positive guy, and glad that you are a positive fellow too. I know those around me like it a lot too.

As for the whiners, I pity those who must have to live around them in everyday life. Because one thing is for sure: they aren't completely opposite out there, they're not happy and positive people in real life. They are the kind of people that suck every ounce of energy out of those around them... The kind of people I do all I can to avoid in real life. Too bad we have to live with them in these forums.

Ooooh, somebody shot at a Tiger Moth... Barbarians!

Is that actually a flap of aluminium bent out from the side of the He-111 fuselage? Never saw that before!
