Why haven't we already implemented a feature where we can cycle through our teammate's positions in a heavy bomber? I would love spitting at an airfield from an all-human TB3, but we can't! And to promote it, we could list all the 'attachable' planes as soon as you connect, and players can opt out.

Just like in BF1942, only a tad more realistic http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Why do you say we can't ? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/mockface.gif

WE CAN !

Make a Coop mission with 2 TB3's (different sides).
Get some teammates together and do a TB3 dogfight in Coop room http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It's big fun http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Huh?

Not sure what you are talking about. You can fly as a gunner on the TB3, the He-111 and IL-2s. You can also cycle through any position that is not occupied by a human.

You can in a df.Just jump to a gunner's position and fire away.Auto pilot takes over when you leave pilot position.Be warned if you get killed as a gunner you can not go back to pilot.

He meant having bombers manned by more than one human player, i.e. one human pilot with two of his online buddies manning the defensive guns.

I agree it would be supercool, but probably prohibitively hard to implement.

It would not be that difficult to implement; it's already implemented for cooperative mode. Why not simply enable it in dogfight mode?

Troll, in dogfight mode, if the player jumps to another position, he will still have to control the aircraft with the joystick. There is no autopilot for the pilot's position in dogfight mode.

Hopefully we will see this in PF as it will have quite a few planes with more than one seat.

Benny I stand corrected.I do know that if you jump to the bombardier's position you can toggle level stabilizer on and off.

Just one question. Why would you want to trade a gunner who can take out a P-47's engine out from 450 meters for a real human that would actually have trouble hitting a plane going 500kph? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Just kidding of course, It would be a blast!
