    It looks like you can barely hear the other aircraft now. People are going to get bounced like mad on Multi-player now! (and I'll probably be one of them )

    and i just started topic on that lol. I would check for K4 and A9 on your 6 tho, those are two loudes bastiges in the game... if they are silent at least on 90% throttle, it is a really good thing

    V!

    Oops I didn't mean to come across that I didn't like it. I'm all for it as I hate it when people know I'm there. Problem is that I did rely on the sound of firing and engines to know what was going on, you couldn't ignore the sound even if it wasn't realistic

    TrackIR sales are sure to go up! And planes with bad visibility to the rear are going to be slightly less popular on "cockpit on" I would imagine.

    Well that is excellent news! Got so tired of manuevering to get behind people so they wouldn't see me, only to have them do some hard turn manuever before I was close enough to get a shot off.

    Maybe some of the lower altitude fights will be a little different online now. Like maybe the Russian fighters hanging on a little too long chasing aircraft because they "can't" hear the aircraft coming up from behind. It will be interesting to see. Can't wait to get on "close to full real" settings server to find out.

    It's really great you can even barely hear the Mk 108s firing on a Me 262.

    I was flying in a 109 G6 AS in QMB just now and this Mustang creeped up behind me when I checked my 6, he opened up and all I could hear were the rounds impacting and his muzzles flashing. Then it was straight down in flames for me wow lol.

    A plane has to fly really really close for you to even hear the slightest woosh and you have to fly at low rpms too I couldn't even hear 16 B 17s in formation.

    Update: You can hear things a lot better in an open cockpit though like the Rata
