Im REALLY REALLY looking forward to Pacific Fighters but one thing that really bugged me in IL2FB is the inability to know where your radiator is at if u dont use externals or HUD.

I can't stand labels, if I can, I turn off all text on the screen in the cfg file. This puts me at a disadvantage in a dogfight as I can only leave my radiator on default setting.

Please Please Please make an option "Radiator Open" "Radiator Closed" "Radiator Auto"

Thanks in advance

That is why I fly now with overheat OFF. More realistic than HUD in your face.

Love I~185 cos you can see the radiator flaps from inside the cockpit, sweet. That makes me want to use overheat ON. Interesting gunnery challenge too.

if you dont like onscreen messages . . . . . then your going to have to keep track of your rad setting mentally

Well I suppose you could use the engine temperature gauge (where visable) as some kinda guide and I believe some cockpits do have a visual reference as to position (which ones though at the current time escape me)

For quite a few of the radial engined aircraft and the Bf109's you can actually see radiator flaps/cowling from the cockpit.
