View Full Version : Is there a ceiling in IL2:46?

01-02-2008, 10:32 PM
I was fooling around with planes i have not tried out before, and thought, why not see how high i can go...

I got all the way up to just over 99,000 (see pics) and was curious as to if anyone had made it to 100,000 or if its possible. I know it has no real use when using a P-51 or anything, but i sometimes enjoy just flying around.

I don't think so...it just keeps going. In some online servers where someone lags out and their plane goes stratospheric and you're viewing their plane from the outside the game world shrinks to a small sphere below the aircraft before the person disconnects.

Hard to say how far it really goes. Nicely done by actually flying there http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The only ceiling is that which imposed by limiting the fuel. (as far I as know).

I have tried the same thing in a Comet and reached about 145,000 feet before i stalled and fell back to earth.

A few years back someone posted a screenshot from about halfway to Mars. It was all blue sky and a little green ball hanging in the void.

after 204.000 ft I think you cant go more, you start falling back even if you still have speed.

Wow. Those pics are neat http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif I don't use the speed bar and the altimeter only goes up to 30K feet/10K meters, so I was always guessing as to how high I was going. I don't think I even came close to the 200K feet mark. That's impressive.

It's all the same above 30,000 feet to infinity. If your plane has a rated altitude above 30K, not a problem as long as there is fuel.

Many planes altimeters quit at 30K, there's no use, I guess, above that to bother making them work.

Yes, there is a ceiling. You'll bump against it if you fly too high. But you can't reach it with an aircraft if starting from the ground. It's somewhere up in space and you can only get there if you set the starting altitude of your flight ridiculously high. Try 5000km.
