obviously i can throttle back, but does using wep for just a moment while you were throttled back leave you back at the original throttled-back power setting?

 

or does it leave you at full normal power?

 

there's no power level indicator, and i'm unable to guess at it just from IAS...

 

 

please, Persha...  just give us an itty-bitty throttle indicator?

Please, Persha return the ui option that allows throttle setting indicator.

What's a throttle,

I'm a noob ad I am glad that WG cares enuf abote me to no cludder the UI with useless things like throttle %

 

I mean the logic is so backwards.

If you care enough about flying to use a joystick in this game, then you're going to want/need important info like throttle percent, gosh, even WW II pilots had engine RPM and indicators on the throttle to tell them what throttle percent they were at.

Be sure to check your logic privileges before posting on the forum.

I know, right? There's a billion things I would like to have in the HUD UI, from throttle indicator to acceleration and deceleration values(well, the latter are better suited for the Hangar UI, but still, they would be helpful. I personally had to turn on the detailed altitude indicator and the detailed airspeed indicator.

 

Do you know where they were found? In the "advanced" settings which come with a "warning.""These settings are intended for experienced players.(now paraphrasing a bit) changing any of these settings will result in the game being near-unplayable. (that was my interpretation of what that "warning" meant.)

 

But, no it won't. Changing the HUD UI to force it to give you at least the bare minimum of useful information(which currently, it doesn't give you much to work with by default) is very important, and goes a long way in making the game more playable and enjoyable. But WG still thinks apparently that essential information needed in real time and in a battle is  "intended for experienced players only":sceptic:

 

I mean, sure. The horizon indicator is pretty darn well useless, no matter what setting it's on, relative to the plane or relative to the ground, because there really isn't a map where you have to go through near-endless clouds, and thus you can almost always see either the horizon or the ground or both.

 

Still, even it might be useful for a bomber on a map with relentless clouds.
