View Full Version : Strangest AI behavior yet after new patch...

I was returning from my first offline mission ever in a FWA6 and I was number two in a flight of four. About half way home, my AI flight leader was flying unusually slow and low and then he did something that had me scratching my head for hours. He went even lower, banked his wings about 45 degrees and put his landing gear down and full flaps. His low wing tip was only about 10 meters frm the ground. Despite the high degree of bank he flew perfectly straight and as he had opposite elevator. Like a perfect sideslip or something. He flew directly to the end of the runway after flying like that about 15 kilometers and landed normally except for the radical approach, which was about 45 degrees from the end of the runway. I recorded a track of the mission and never saw him get hit by enemy fighters or ground fire during play back. I'd say this is the weirdest behavior I've ever witnessed since IL2 demo came out in 2001!! Anbody got a clue as to what might explain this?? I hope this was just a fluke and this is not indicative of what we are to expect from now on after the patch. Yikes!!!

Try flying night missions. Sometimes when there are fighter tangles, one random plane will just turn on its nav lights and fly straight for a second, then just turn them off and rejoin the fight...its quite odd.

I think landing routines are pre-recorded/scripted so AI generally can't make landing mistakes but this can result in strange behavior when AI's approach airfields from difficult angles.

i ve seen similar before the patch watching a tante ju,or me 262 come in for landing.i think its the jv44 campagne but as they come in for landing they turn at least 45 degrees(the ju s left wing actualy touches the ground) then flatten out and land,lol.

After it was refeuled i climbed in.With many manipulations the mechcanics started the turbines.I followed their actions with the greatest of interest.The first one started quite easily.the second caught fire.In no time the whole engine was on fire.Luckily as a fighter pilot i was used to getting quickly out of the cockpit.The fire was quickly put out.The second plane caused no trouble - Adolf Galland (first time in a ME262)

Are you sure ST_Pawnee didn't jump in your game and take over? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Sounds like the opening clip of his really cool Solo-show movie.

I just rewatched the whole thing again but found that he didn't add opposite rudder, he added left rudder same his aileron!! But continued to fly straight as an arrow, which is totally impossible.
By all rights he should have been turning a really tight radius circle pattern. As far as the one guy who wants to watch the track, I will have to email it, since I have no space on the web to put tracks. So anybody wants to watch this strange occurance, give me your email address.
