I really like this utility that lets you compare performance characteristics of any two planes side-by-side in FB but I can't seem to find out where I got it and whether there is a newer version that includes the newer planes since the 1.1 patches.

Any idea if this great little utility will get an overhaul?

I also use this good utility, and when i downloaded it there was a statment from Hardball saying that as Oleg brought more planes into the game hardball would endevour to update his utility just lets give thhe man time as a lot of time goes into the programming. The only problem i see at the moment is that Mudmovers site appears not to have been updated since last year, does anybody know what is happening at that site?

I'm waiting to get the finalised list of new aircraft for the Aces add-on. The latest version should be available soon.

a little OT, but is there anything that shows all the aircraft stats in one place, like an Excel spreadsheet or something ?

i love your utility Hardball, and use it at least once a day or so, but i would love to line things up in one column, according to say, climbrate for example.

Thanks Hardball, again I appreciate your efforts!

One question, are these in-game performance relations or real life?

Thanks chaps, you're welcome. I've gotten so much from FB and the community that it's good to be able to give a little back.

The data is basically the same as what you find in the in-game object viewer, and if I had to guess I would say it was real-life data.

I'm not sure whether there's a spreadsheet of data available anywhere. Oleg saved me a lot of work by giving me the object viewer data in a Word document format, but only on the condition that I hard-coded it into the program so nobody could copy it.

I just don't understand that. It's already in the object viewer, so it's freely available. Well, I'm sure he has his reasons.

C! for your hard work. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Apart from Hardball's excellent viewer there's also another utility called IL2 Compare which allows you (obviously) to compare flight dynamics between the different aircraft.
Sorry but I don't have a link, but I think the check six site had a link on it for the program.
