is ridiculous that the gunsight in some planes like the la7 takes most of your angle of vertical sight for deflection shots it doesnt happen in the hurricane where the gunsight is lower than the front part of the plane so the angle of view is limited by the front part of the plane

to avoid this a real pilot just would have to move his head forward and up to dont have the gunsight metal part bothering his angle of view

in fact in the 1.0 version the la7 didnt have this problem and the gunsight lower edge was lower than the front part of the plane what gave you more angle of view

Raaaid,

I would like to see a gunsight swapper like they have in CFS1 and CFS2. That would be the ultimate thing. I did enjoy swapping out the gunsights etc.

Maybe we have someone here who can do this? Would be a nice addon.

Comments?

Some gunsights are a beauty even with marks (all german planes ) but when it comes to the gunsight for , say , p39 , la's you name it! the markings are SO thick that even if you are at 0.3 is a pain in the arse to see if the chased one is below or above your line of sight.The dot & circle gunsights are one of the best (Hurri,P40,P47,Brewster) for eyeball action. I wish I can change the gunsights markings but I was already told fecck off , which I did. Quietly http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I think this is the first time I have ever heard someone complain about the gunsight view in a VVS plane....wow, what is the world coming too? /me chuckles



On a serious note, I totally agree that the reticle lines are too thick...and in certain models of the Yak the gunsight glass is extremely dark, making shooting actually somewhat difficult.

Looks like you LW boys never flown in a LA7 in this game.

Yes it hard to deflection shoot in your oh so precious little FW190 but the monocle sized gunsight of a LA7 isn't much better for deflection shooting either.

On top of that you guys claim that the LA5FN is also great for high angle deflection shooting.
Don't you guys see the big bulge blocking the lowe part of the gunsight or don't you want to see it?

Then the I-153, well I don't think I have to go into detail on this one since the gunsight is practically useless.

Most Jak and MiG gunsights are also positioned very low so it doesn't leave much room for high angle deflection shooting.

The only plane really great at high angle deflection shooting is the Hurricane.
I hardly ever miss my target in high deflections in a Hurricane.

TX-Zen
01-23-2004, 09:58 AM
To imply that the LA series is somehow getting shafted in deflection shooting is just plain absurd.

Do you really think those planes are AS limited in deflection shooting as the 190? Do you really think they have a HARDER time shooting other planes down?

No he wouldn't cause he couldn't. There were no head room in the La-7 for proper aiming, the sight was fitted so high that the pilot would bump his head into the canopy if he tried to even look straight through it. Which is why they mostly flew with the canopy open.

Simple answer for the La-7 - don't do anything that requires deflection shooting. Which is pretty simple considering it can turn on a dime and in dives you're already inhibited.

Well, because they *are* such hot-rods (and should be) that makes them "noob planes". That's not necessarily a slight. A "noob plane" is simply one that's forgiving, easy to fly, and whose performance can make up for a lot of mistakes made by an inexperienced pilot.

As opposed to an "ueber plane" which is one that is *modelled* to be better than it should be...or it could be one that simply WAS head and shoulders above the rest. The La7 and Yak3 might also qualify for that distinction as well.

The big thing about noob and ueber planes is, IMO, getting to the pilot's motive for flying it. I don't look down at a new guy struggling to learn who flies the best plane he can get until he can fly better overall. But I got nothing but scorn for the pilot whose favorite plane somehow always happens to be that one that the boards are full of "overmodelled" posts for... like all those "die-hard P-39 pilots" from two versions ago*...and the Hurri fans of FB 1.0. And the La5FN pilots in IL-2 1.2. These are probably the same guys. They just switch to whatever helps them win a majority of the time.

The guys I respect most are the guys who stick with a particular plane, are known for it, and can kick butt in it, even sometimes against planes that are later or better than it.

I hear what you are saying Stig, but, I hate to see the nOOb label get attached to particular a/c. I got some flak for sticking to my 190A4 in '42 because it was the superior a/c of the time period.

Yes, La7s are great fighters but, can still be beaten by superior tactics and teamwork.

I'm not particularly looking forward to the comments I expect to receive while flying the TA152 when it arrives, my gut instinct tells me that alot of people are going to be very upset with it (at least if it flies like an improved D9 which is probably a reasonable expectation).

People will probably be shrieking about the P63 too...look at how alot of people complain about the P39 right now and the 63' can only be better I imagine.


For people that have worked their behinds off mastering the difficult planes, finally getting the best of the series is sort of like earning a just reward for all the hardwork put into flying their chosen plane when they could have flow much easier ones.

It will be a shame if TA152's, P63's, Spitfires and others get an unfair branding of being uber. If they were that good, they were that good and the game should reflect it.


I have a tremendous amount of respect for those who fly their favorite planes because they like them (that includes 'professional' La and Yak drivers)...and almost zero respect for people who fly only the best the game has to offer and then think that somehow they are better than everyone else. Stiglr has a good point about the motives of the pilot and what that says about them...some people have stuck with the Yak from day 1, some have stuck with the P39 also, the FW, the P40, the P47 etc. Many many others hop in the hotrod of the day and think thats it, they are the hotshots of the sim.

Bloot

If it's your favorite plane and you fly it well, you have my respect regardless of the kind of plane it is.

Than litle by litle you'll see that the FW190 and P47 etc.. are awesome to fly
even the lagg3, yak 1 ,huricane , i16etc..

Whatever cappodocian.

I can take an LA7 up in full real settings and rack up 2000 points in less then an hour. The gunsight is more than enough for deflection and lightyears better than a fw190. I can do the same in a 109.

If I take the fw190 up however, I can still get kills, but some get away due to the ridiculously nasty gunsight view.

It's silly to ask for better gunsight on the la7 as it's done best as possible in FB. Same goes for the fw190 since refraction can't be modeled in game. So I just accept it.

If you wish the la7 had a better sight then you are obviously approaching enemies at too high angle of attack. It's close to the most effective plane in the game below 4000m.

When I hear someone complaining about the la7 cockpit, they might as well being complaining that they don't have infinite photon torpedos on their x-wing space fighter. That damn plane has enough advantages already and doesn't need any more. It's modeled properly.

I fly p51 mostly and don't consider myself an axis elitist.

I can't say I feel sad that you don't want to reply to me anymore so I really hope you keep your word on that one.

BTW, your retort was very dissapointing, followed by name calling which means you couldn't find anything smart to say.

As if saying "reading is not your strong point" is in any way more proper than plain name calling. They are both insults.

I'm so glad you can think of "smart" things to say.

You must be the biggest "internet intellectual" around. Please move out of your mother's basement and buy your own house. It isn't healthy for someone your age to live with his mom.

BTW the LA7 and YAK3 ARE NOOB planes. That doesn't make me a damn Axis elitist. They were NOOB planes in real life. Easy to dominate in dogfights. So why in the hell when modeled properly in game can it not be called a NOOB plane?

Cappadocian_317, your cannot-be-effected-by-anything-including-mk108-rounds-which-are-30-mm-because-it's-wooden is fine as it is. Don't complain about the gunsight, it's position, or anything else relating to that. As it's been pointed out, there are many other aircraft where deflection shooting is harder due to the gunsight or other obstructions *coughfw190barcough*.

So if you don't like the sight on the La's, deal with it. Or switch planes. OH WAIT! That would be too much to ask, other planes might require more dedication to master, which, you clearly aren't willing to give because you can't get over the gunsight in the La 7.

And if you can't come up with a good reply to this, go ahead and insult any grammatical mistakes I have made, makes no difference to me. BTW, I'll claim right now that reading isn't my strong point http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

This place is full of em.

I did not request ANY changes.

My my, how difficult can it be ro read a simple text message Rall?

"your cannot-be-effected-by-anything-including-mk108-rounds-which-are-30-mm-because-it's-wooden is fine as it is"

I have ZERO problems gunning those so called "indestructable" Yak's, LA's, LaGG's or whatever else you have on your bias list with German weapons, so I guess I must be doing something different then.

ajafoofoo, the Noob plane BS is also getting old.

I find the P-51 very easy to fly and fight in so I guess that's a noob plane as well then?

But I thought you where going to stop replying on my posts ajafoofoo?

I guess I lied to you. As if I respect you enough to not lie to you.

And yes, I would call the p-51 a noob plane to some extent as modeled in game. It can make ridiculously tight turns at high speed and combined with the 50 cal spray it's quite easy to PK, start fires, and waste all control surfaces in high speed passes.

Actually, I bought a house over 3 years ago and I moved out of my moms house when I was 17.

You have no ide what my age is either.

This is getting really sad....lmao.

And Rall, this has also nothing to do with it:

"And if you can't come up with a good reply to this, go ahead and insult any grammatical mistakes I have made, makes no difference to me. BTW, I'll claim right now that reading isn't my strong point"

I never point out any spelling or grammar mistakes to anyone because it's BS to do that on a international forum.

English is mostly used because it's a noob language, any moron can learn it.

the LA-7 is lousy for being accurate with your shooting

it has these hugh white lines all over it that block view of your bandit

the LA-5F has a nice gunsite tho

the hardest plane to deflect with hasto be the P-39 followed by the FW-190

the nicest gunsite in-game ? , thats easy

the Hurricane , simply brilliant

Baldie, I hope I've never given the impression I don't like you. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Forgive my lack of verbosity, but your subtle, yet generally cutting-to-the-heart-of-the-matter post riposte has been something I've tried to pick up on. I may not agree with everything you've said before (I definitely got the wrong impression from the old "I am an online ace" thread, http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I don't remember if I posted on that or not.) but I generally find your posts entertaining and informative. This may find you aghast http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif, but you're one of the people who keep this place in some sort of sanity, imo. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Generally speaking, if you can't laugh at yourself, laughing at someone else dosen't have much meaning, as you're laughing for the wrong reason. Too many people take themselves way to seriously. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/mockface.gif I pretty sure you believe something similar. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

btw, can I exchange those points for my very own P-47? If so, I'll be taking donations so I can buy extremely large quantities of avgas for short flights. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
