hi there!

i have trouble staying in formation when flying offline (online you can speak to your team and define a cruise, climb, descent,.. power setting. you have the same plane & loadout => same airspeed in formation)

when flying offline i always have to throttle up and down and apply flaps to stay in formation.

is there something like a standard power setting for cruise, climb, etc. for the AIs?

i think the normal cruise power setting when on altitude is something like 50%, but i'm not sure.

can somebody help, please ?

Yes, standard power setting is 'Full-UFO power'... yes, you read right, not full military power :P

That's because the AI cheats... it's been an issue ever since the "old" days of IL2.

In the Il-2's it looks more like 68-69% HOWEVER, the absolutely do alter the settings- completey crappy pilots as I'm sure all know. You have to stay sharp if you don't want to tango with those goofs.

Cheers,

I am playing a campaign in the original IL2, unpatched. I can fly in formation perfectly at ranges that are quite realistic. It's all rather enjoyable, compared to the madness that is FB AI. The AI doesn't seem to do that speed up/down mess in the unpatched IL2, at least for the IL2 sturmoviks in my squad.
