For the hell of it i increased my power and thrust scaler to 4 on the wildcat,well theres no more problems getting off the deck about 10 feet is all you need lol.When you first fire it up,the torque about throws you off the deck.Max speed is around 750-800 mph.Forget handling there isnt any after 600. Shoulda seen the japs chasing my wingmen and myself.After 5min of nobody scoring a hit it became rather redundent.We would zoom by to fast to get on target,and the zeroes couldnt get close lol.

anyone notice wings tearing off under too much stress?> I've done everything I could to provoke that in a Zero (diving from 35,000 feet) with no luck... starting to wonder...

why would you dive in a zero from 35K in the first place?

To see if it could handle the stresses

If you did, the wings should tear off, which they don't. Also, engines never overheat. I ran a Corsair at war emergency power for 5 or ten minutes, and my engine was not damaged at all that I could tell (real engines were often damaged by such operation).

Same here.

I remember the first time I was either running away from, or running after somebody in EAW or WWII Fighters and overheated my engine.

It hasn't happened yet in CFS2, even with Water Injection going.

Same with stress damage. Couldn't you rip the wings off your airplane in EAW and SDOE?

Come to think of it, I remember the first time I tried Aces of the Pacific. I went into a dive in a Corsair and my wings came off!

In the Cfs2.cfg file change the following:
StressDamage=False to StressDamage=True. This file is in the main CFSII folder. Stress Damage is under the heading Realism, about half way down the page. Then try your dive and see if you can break the plane. I don't think this feature is active.

Actually, it is enabled. The AIR files just have it set real high. We Jerry discovered this flying the 1% P-51 in CFS2. He go it up to 500mph and yanked the stick. It exploded. Unfortunately, the wings don't rip off. You just explode.

I tried this in the Corsair. I climbed to just over 30,000ft, above that and even 1000/min was almost to steep a climb. It might make it to its max altitude, but I couldn't get it there. Anyway, I hit 30k and tipped it over and dove for the deck. I hit 665kts. A milisecond later I hit the South Pacific. No stress damage on the way down, just that last bit at the very end.

Oh man, you were right. I took my 1% Mustang (converted original from CSF) up to 35,000, slewed it up there for brevities sake. Went into a dive, switched to outside view, and the damn thing went off like a grenade. I waited until it hit 600kts, yanked back on the stick, thought it was gonna make it… then bam! Too cool.
