I recently started playing IL2 1946 after a year or so. I love the jets as they offer a new challenge. I would love to fly online in a server that allows jets.

So far, I have not found any on HL. I would make my own, but I do not have a dedicated server and fear that nobody would play. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Anybody know of all Jet servers, or one that at least allows them???

thanks

play on 4.08 =Jets=, HH owns it, I think
its not always on cause of maintenance but I'm always online there...

HH owns it, I think

Problem is I have school and since I live on the other side of the world from the rest of the IL-2 community, people come online at midnight... but yeah

lots of fun playing there, hope to see you in the skies http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Nemesis server is also a option.

the only problem there is there's always too many players with the ME-163. the problem for me is not the ME-163, rather then that is that is an arcade server with unlimited numbers of it.

Warning: I wouldn't recommend the 4.08 Jets server in any way. It used to be a fun server, but they only play with cockpit off, which severely sux. There is no skill in playing without a cockpit, imho. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

And to make things worse, they enforce a "no boom an zoom" flying style. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif That's right, you read correctly. No booming and zooming! But the HH guys are allowed to use whatever tactics they see fit. If anyone comes onto their server and starts whooping @ss, they will tell you that you are not flying by "their rules" and you will consequently be kicked out and banned.

Be warned, 4.08 Jets is a total joke of a server and a major insult to the IL2 community.

The community would be better served by someone starting a new jets server, with the cockpits on.

my 2 cents... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I have to agree with this, while I have no problem with open cockpit, these guys run a very questionable server. Map has all icon on so you can see where every airplane is, in addition to the no boom and zoom (I don't know how else to fight at 800kph...) they do not allow bombing of any player aircraft, you can only bomb static objects or you'll be banned for vulching (they do not state this odd caviatte on thier rules).

I would love for another jet server to open up, if not full switch at least like Skies of Valor.

Hmmm. Disapointing. I like to play as realistic as possible. Allowing speedbar only. Maybe icons.

As I said, I have made realistic servers before, not dedicated though and nobody ever joins..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Yes, I played on this server the other day. Very disapointing. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif Tried the Ho-229A and could not even get off the ground due to vulching. No Flak to prevent this. And the All-seeing view due to map icons of all aircraft makes this server a joke.http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

I am going to make a all jet server and see if anybody will join. But I am not too confident as only a few people seem to fly jets here. Surprising.

Which jets are you going to include? I'll probably fly it once and awhile.

All jets. Some later props for comparision purposes. Ground targets both close air support and interdiction.

I think CZ AH dedicated run a jet map once in a while, I seem to remember flying juets there a while ago and it was a lot of fun.

Mike,

What will the server be named - so I can look for it. I'll definitely come and fly if cockpit is on.

A full switch P-80 Vs. MiG-9 server in line with Zeke Vs. Wildcat and Spit Vs. 109 would be nice

Probably will have external views, just because the jets look so cool. limited icons. Definately cockpit always on.

Yes! Yes! A proper jet server! Flying prop planes is really good and beacuse in the first line this is a WWII flight sim; but with all that interesting jets inlcluded it's such a shame there's no proper jets only server.

I really dislike arcadish style HH 4.08 jets only server.

Great news! Keep it up! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I too love pistons, but for a change I wanna do jets. I don't agree with full real, switch ect, ala Zekes vs wildcats cause you gotta fly right up to them to ID. so Icons I consider a must for fun. Also, do not believe in no cockpit, you miss all that cool instrumentation!

I love historical missions, but I tried those in the past and no body was interested.

If this goes well, Ill create some jet coop missions..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

Sounds fun. I like range limited icons as i just can't see the dots on my system-(of course it may be my old eyes)
Also like speedbar, as reading gauges is too hard. (no track IR)

Also like cockpit just for the feel of it. And they ae really well done.

I have flown on many IL-2 servers on hyperlobby and found the majority to be full of nothing but pilots flying spits and LA-7s. After a while this became incredibly boring and I considered looking for a different game to fly but then IL-2 1946 came along. It had the same old planes as before but I was thrilled to see that they added jets to it.

At first I found only one server with jets in it, it is 408 jets. Being new to the jets it was nice to have the server set up the way it was. While trying to figure out how to manage the jet engines and the weapons it was nice to have the map icons on so that I could avoid the battle if needed or find the battle quickly to try out certain aircraft. It was nice to not be boomed and zoomed by some unskilled pilot while I was trying to figure out the jets.

It was very refreshing to fly on a server where the pilots were flying in all different types of planes instead of the same 2 overmodelled uber planes. The open cockpit helped in figuring out the guns/missles and made for a fun game. I have tried flying full switch servers and found I spend all day just looking for a battle; this is incredibly boring and not worth the time I have to fly. I am a pilot in real life and I find that the "full realism" in IL-2 is nothing at all like real life flight. It seems many have forgotten that this is a game after all.

I was thrilled to see a couple of other jet servers come on hyperlobby but was disappointed by the very few maps on them and the fact that nobody ever flew in them. For some reason these other jets servers were unpopular and failed to stay around on hyperlobby. I never seem to have a problem finding a battle on the 408 jet server as it seems to be rather popular.

I don't understand the comments made here by some pilots. They seem to have spent many hours on 408 jets but they have all these complaints about it. If you don't like the server then why have you spent all this time flying there?

If I fly on a server that is paid for and maintained by somebody else I am more than happy to obey their rules no matter how ridiculous they seem. I don't like the "no vulching with bombs" rule on 408 jets but I adhere to it because it is not my server.

The folks on 408 jets have been very helpful in teaching me how to fly the jets and how to use the weapons. Being a female I have found them to be respectful as well. There are many servers I will not fly on because the squad members said so many terrible sexist things to me.

It seems to me that the real "shame of hyperlobby" are the people who complain about servers but don't even attempt to start one themselves.

Thank you to the people who manage 408 jets and thanks to the others who have tried to start jets servers in the past.

I may be wrong, but doesn't skies~of~fire have some map rotations that have jets on them? I seem to recall getting a few free sky diving lessons from Me-262's on that server. It was about 6 months ago now.. may have been another server, but I am sure it was skies~of~fire,
