If I turn on autopilot and watch the temperature gauges I see the temperature remains constant even if the autopilot goes on full trottle (easy to see watching the trottle and rpm gauge). I tested this with different aircraft (Spit, FW190, P47, Yak9), same result. Might it be just a general graphics bug? Also if I switch back from autopilot the temperature indicated beginns to increase, if I now switch again on autopilot it remains at the temperature indicated at the moment I do the switch.

A real stinker isn't it.

The AI cheats. If it didn't, it would be even more like shooting fish in a barrel when you go up against them.

You can use it to your advantage as well. Try getting out of a flat spin in a Cobra. When you think you are doomed, hit the 'A' key ( auto spin recovery http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ) and watch as the AI deftly pulls out of it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Yeah, the AI cheat, but the degree to which they cheat has become an enormous issue with many offliners. The no overheat-unlimited WEP-no dive limit-no G-limits is merely the baseline for the AI in this game.

AI routines and behavior vis a vis the player were far superior prior to the introduction of Pacific Fighters.

Bring back the old AI!

cheers

Horseback, I think it's not fair to say the present AI are overal worse then pre Pacific Fightes ones. I think for example AC like FW190 or P47 would use more boom and zoom now. Also the AI model has varied quite a lot with 4.0X patches. For me the best AI model: 4.02 beta or 4.01 beta (I don't remember) but it was the beta patch which introduced the new flight model, also the patch when Oleg told us that the AI have the same flight model with us.
