Well, it appears that the patch for FB is not going to introduce realistic WEP usage...seems people will still be able to fly the 109-K4 WEP/on @103% throttle for those extended 30 minute flights.

Anyone else interested in making WEP times (and associated damage) realistic for the various a/c in FB?

Cheers,

Beta08 still looks very unfinished and probably isn't representative of the final patch. I'd be suprised if 109, 190, Hurri, etc WEP times were not fixed in the final copy.

Then on the second day, it was made bug free, and He saw that it was good.

In IL2, after prolonged WEP usage, the engine gets damaged and you gotta land of bail out. Not so in FB?

Most of the planes do overheat, but there are other planes that can use WEP indefinitely, or for excessive periods not possible in real life.

For example, 109K4/G14/G10/G6/190D9 with MW50 @ 103% power will keep running without overheat until the fuel runs out. Same with Hurricane at 110% power, Forsahz and 110% mix.

But again, the overheat code doesn't appear to have been changed yet in the leaked beta patches, and are probably not indicative of how it will be in the release.





Insert sig here.

The 103% bug is fixed in the 08 patch, so I assume it will be in the final patch too. You need to use 110% now to get top speed, and you better do it quick, because it will overheat fast. The top speed is way down now too. About 40-50 km/h on the K4. Every plane overheats much faster now, and it will do damage you don't realize if you leave it there. If you stay there to long, and finally bring it back to normal, the damage has been done, and your speed will get slower annd slower. I find the best way to fly is to correct an overheat right away. There is no plane that can just cruise all day at top speed anymore.

Well, I certainly hope the WEP/Overheat times are fixed in the patch, it's too much like cheating now...

I thought Oleg was concerned with realism, on one hand he's concerned about the forward view in the 190, then he gives certain planes unrealistic, unlimited boost without engine damage. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Please refrain from discussing the performance of the soon to be released patch based on the leaked version, it is not finished.

God I hope your right... But when you consider it took them a few MONTHS to go from

Beta00,
Beta01,
Beta02,
Beta03,
Beta04,
Beta05,
Beta06,
Beta07,
Beta00,
Beta08...

And Beta08 is still... broke... How much can they do in the few weeks left? Well, it wouldnt be the fist time Oleg and the team impressed me... but it just seems imposiable? Unless they are all EX-TRUCK drivers with thos majic little pills! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

One person makes a generalized statement and you feel the need to use your modly powers? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

This thread was started as a SERIOUS request for Oleg & Co. to think about adding realism to the game, by allowing MP hosts the ability to "turn-off unlimited WEP".

I still think this is a good idea, even if the concept of realism is fading at Maddox:1C and UBI in favor of sales to FPS kiddies...
