Oleg, could you take time out to consider the following improvements to the track player in FB.

1. Some way to implement track rewind would be the absolute best improvement. I know you have said this would be extremely difficult and perhaps impossible but I also know from looking at your achievments with FB that you are a genius and maybe, just maybe you could work something out /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

2. An F1 (cockpit) view for all aircraft in a track. Only flyable aircraft and only available in track playback. People would use it as a cheat online if they could get F1 view for their enemies aircraft while playing online, so I would just like to see this implemented on track playback.

3. A 'cinema' mode for track playback which switches off all icons, on screen messages, red and blue arrows etc., etc.,...

I know you and the developers are very busy with the patch and other projects, but could I asked that you give this some consideration and a little feedback...

Many thanks for your time.

PS I know how important FM, DM and new aircraft are so forum members please don't flame me. Just exploring other avenues of this great game...

Excellent Idea, Scragbat. A rewind button would be invaluable. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

If a rewind button is too time consuming to implement, then a "restart" key map that does not require a reload of everything would be better than nothing.

It would also be nice to have a "Refly" button in single player mode that does not require you to "Quit" the mission and reload everything. When you suck as bad as I do, that's a lot of time reloading textures.

I apologize in advance if this has been addressed before but since the search feature always times out...


Is there a way to damage aircraft from the console? I hate having to fly an aircraft next to an enemy bomber or, shoot at bombers from friendly bombers, and hope the damage I'm looking for is what I get for my movie. Multiple takes are next to impossible if you want the sscript to follow a damaged aircraft. Development builds must have this, or something like it, for testing purposes.


Thanx,

-WhtBoy.

I know that the developers are now probably reading these posts to see how people are finding the latest patch and to see if they missed anything.

Please Oleg and team. Please consider what I have outlined.

I know the rewind option is probably out of the question but the icons and F1 view would just be a real benefit for track playback. A real benefit.

The whole point of track playback is to watch and enjoy a mission, dogfight or co-op that you took part in again and again. If anybody hasn't tried recording and playback, you really should. It's a hoot!

All I ask is some feedback from the devlopers.

If something as trivial as the wheel cover length on the P51 mesh will be fixed in the pay Add On. Could this at least get some consideration.

Guys, imagine watching a track of a game you were in without the clutter of icons, red and blue arrows and chat messages!

Just some feedback one way orthe other please to put my mind at rest.

Thnx
