    A pilot can easily will be able to recognazie any plane from his shapes even with long distance. I experienced that it is not hard to recognize any plane from enough distance which gives you enough time to run or attack. And with simple nav training all players can easily choose a route to target or home without any map icons. Ofcourse a pilot shold climb for his safe and best performance alt of his planes. This is the nature of combat flight actions but yes all of these can get bored new players after their years of WB sim life. On the other hand these settings will make new (and some old) players in "just join and fight" mod. Because no one need to study about shapes, navigation, throttle&PP settings, trimming etc. This is exactly should not be in a flight simulation. Anyway, i am a member of TGR squad and i will be there whrere they are in.

    it was about hyperlobby servers, no single server with good settings (for me),
    boring full realism or arcade with transparent cockpits

    you got the point i spend too much time with WB ;)

    only reason i bought 1946 and back again to flight sims was rumors about il2 server adequate to WBFH arena, servers without icons are not fun for me especially i dont want drop graphic setting to see more, with 1280/1024 max setting i usually recognize enemy when he start shooting to me ;)

    why the servers no icons have smaller success?
    see why more players is where there the icons are?
    why servers May TGR icons? :)

    I must say that servers with no icons have same or even more success than servers with icons and other stuff enabled for easy play
    do not compare WB and IL-2 they are not the same, as if I remember correctly the Idea is to bring WB game play in IL-2 and it is on right track

    If you see you have lot and lot of players in several wars like SEOW, AW (known as bellum wars, because it is evaluation ... well to keep it short..) , and in this kind of "wars" you have full realism + speed bar (somewhere)

    so the question you should ask yourself is quality of players on servers will full switch and with no cockpit or even icons, where there is icons there is high possibility of friendly kill, but lets see what we have here, if you put players from all of them on full switch and let them fight I know who will win.

    For example you fly LI-2 or JU 52 low and try to hide behind some hill and icon gave you away and next thing you are dead, and you have failed your mission, I know you will say now you did not gain air superiority but if your people still fight and draw away your opponent you can hide, I even landed on a road one time and waited and even had good cover but icon gave me away :(, after that field was closed and I could not capture it ..., ah well

    So I wanna say Il-2 is more relistic game so server should bring that too, WB style of play is great and could bring hard core players and squads so decide wisely, I just wanna add once when you learn to fly without icons (full real + lets say speed bar) , then you will be satisfy yourself more and you will even more enjoy the simulation IL-2
    I will fly FH mod for sure because I flied WB before I and my squad mates come to IL-2.


    cya there :flyer: :turret:

    Hallo Gentleman,
    first of all i have to say that i love the idea of IL2 Freehost.
    Since i have read of this idea i looked nearly every day to the server. All things a working but the only thing i missed are the pilots.
    So my question is, when is the best time to fly and meet other pilots?
    It´s boring to fly alone. Or is there an other server as this one 195.189.238.100:21007?

    Hope that we can fly together in the near future like at WB Freehost.

    cu in air

    unfortunately
    lack of scoring act as a disincentive for the majority of players

    we must be patient
    I hope the guys that work on this:)

    yet on HyperLobby

    Just logged on to IL-2 FH and was hoping to find a flyable P-38 ... alas, no such luck. There were many late 1943 planes available, but no P-38s. When is the Lightning scheduled to become available in the Il-2FH RPS?

    Guys, why isn't anybody ever playing the game? I've checked the arena like 5 times in the recent days and found it empty on every occasion. :\
