when you land , or make a controlled crash like in my case.

it seems that planes is not in correct ratio with other objects in game. maybe this ratio is why so hard to see and hit ground objects with ordnance?

is it me? or am i just insane?


Thanks.

Some other guys have said this too, but it is not the case on my PC. Someone suggested it could be a graphic card anomally.

How about a screen shot to prove it?

Spend a few Zloty's and get an introductory flying lesson at your local airport instead of blowing the wad on the usual. After that, come back and take a look at this post.

i'd be willing to bet houses in 1939 poland were not particularly huge?

.. and planes tend to be bigger then you think

Typical houses in the UK are about 20 feet by 20 feet
per person (i.e. 20 feet by 40 feet for both halves of
a semi (duplex)), and probably about 30 feet high to
the top of the roof.

If houses in the USSR were the same size per person
as in the UK, but were all detached, you'd be talking
20 feet square houses. A spitfire was about 25 feet long,
with a span a bit over 30 feet - i.e. bigger than a house
apart from in height.

Per family, not per person.
