    Hello

    If your out there Oleg, just wanted you to know this is the best P.C. aircraft simulator ever!!!

    However...and I bet many have asked this...

    Would it be possible to add more authentic engine sounds to the planes??? At least just the flyable aircraft...

    I've been craving to hear the sounds of a Rolls Royce Merlin engine for real! heh...

    Also...would it be appropriate to ask if you make the B-24 flyable?? My grandfather was a B-24 tailgunner and served 43 missions and i love the B-24. I showed him this sim and the
    B-24 but I felt kinda silly when I said "Well..There's no interior on this one" (I was flying it as an AI aircraft from external views...lol

    Sounds is one thing Microsoft did a lot better with CFS2 and FS2004 (dunno about cfs3).
    Don't think it will be very hard to make it better in Il2, but it will take some more calculating power. And Il2 already takes a lot, so i think its just not possible to have it all.
    -Good sound
    -Good FM
    -Good DM
    -Good AI
    -Good graphics
    Just not gonna work on our medium config PC's

    If you better A/C sounds, get your hand on the original IL2 !!! That was awsome, each crate has its sound i.e. the He111 diesel engines...

    It's not only the engine souds that were reduced, but the whole sound environnement i.e. in tracks, when a bullet was passing by, you could hear it !!

    Since FB all that has been lost

    Why did they remove the good sounds in the first place anyway? Performance?

    There were no He 111 versions with Diesel engines !

    I could be wrong, but I believe that a diesel engined aircraft has never flown.

    The Ju86 was a diesel engined bomber.

    I'll second this notion. The Spits and Hurricanes sound like lawn mowers!

    I'm no plane nut but even I know a Merlin engine when I hear one!

    The only thing they have to do, is to make it possible for the users to edit/add the sound they like. Just like with the skins....
    And while at it (of topic I know) but also let us (3rd. party) add custom skins to the tanks, trucks, ships, parachutes and etc. etc.
