I can't begin to thank A2A enough for your work. I have the Stratocruiser, B-17, and now the Spitfire. Hours upon hours of pure simulation enjoyment.
So I have a question about the oil system in the Spit. The oil viscosity doesn't seem to change all that much from flight to flight or during start-up. I would expect that on a cold day with a cold engine, that when I finally get the Merlin growling, the oil pressure would be quite high, maybe even high enough to blow a pump until the oil warms up. Also in flight when I move the throttles forward, I don't see a corresponding rise in pressure.
It's not a huge deal to me, as I love everything about the plane. Just something that I wonder about that might be improved in an update. The service pack for the Stratocruiser added some amazing things, especially in regards to oil. Perhaps that can be done for the Spit. Am I wrong in my thoughts about how the oil should work?
As I write this, my Spitfire is sitting at Heathrow airport with a OAT of 2! I've spent about 20 minutes trying to get her started!
It's funny how much fun it is trying to coax her to life. Thanks again.
P.S. Pertinent question- what is the best way to start a cold and finicky Merlin?
