I've started a thread over at 1c dealing specifically with bombers and multi-crewed/multi-engined aircraft (that includes the Stuka and the 110 as well).
My goal is to get some exposure for whatever issues prevent us from effectively flying bombers in the sim and apply some pressure to get them fixed. With the graphics optimizations nearing completion and the fighter FMs being revised, two of the most popular areas of complaint for the majority of the playerbase are close to being addressed for good, so i thought that leaves room to deal with something else that's equally important but usually overlooked.
After all, fighters have no reason to scramble and climb out if no bombers are near
I'm explaining things in more detail in that particular thread so i'll cut the introduction a bit short here, anyone who's interested can read the whole thing over at 1c.
What i'm asking for is for any willing bomber pilots to read that thread, follow the posting guidelines (which are meant to help me combine the information in a time-efficient manner and keep the thread readable for everyone involved) and report:
- whatever bugs they have found
- whatever modeling errors they have found (from simple 3D modelling errors and reversed control animations, to incorrect areas of the FM, inaccurate modeling of aircraft systems and missing loadouts/equipment)
- any suggestions they have that would make flying a bomber a better experience and/or more realistic
Even if you have nothing to add to the list i have already compiled, take a moment to read it and maybe you can answer a few questions that have popped up. Essentially what i'm trying to do is collect any potential issues, test how things work in the sim, get some data on how they worked in real life and compare them so that we can determine what is a bug and what is not.
Thread is over here: http://forum.1cpublishing.eu/showthread.php?t=32592
It's quite a long read but i've split the introduction from the actual bugs and suggestions list (which starts on the 2nd post from the top), so that you can skim through it with more convenience.
I'll be personally moderating that thread and if enough people show interest it will be stickied too. This is our chance to get our bombers fixed guys, go go go! Also, any fighter boys who know what's good for them will support this effort too...the sooner we can properly get up in groups of 10-20 the sooner you'll get nice fat targets to shoot at in multiplayer
