When I saw a little sea battle (a little compared to those in Pacific) in one coop mission ...there was Tripitz with one coastal defence ship and a Torpedo boat against 2 Red cruisers and 2 destroyers...and then a dogfight with fighters started 1000 m above ships ...just 4 vs4 ...And ships' AA started to shoot ....that whole thing became too much for my comp (I have AMD xp2600 , 1Gb ram and radeon 9800pro) and my question is how PF will work couse Those battleships and carriers have 10x more AA on decks , that means 10x more tracers in the air...so is that meaning that FPS will drop to the level of unplayable game???
Just imagine attack on one carrier and 2 escorts ....With dive bombers ...so much flak and tracers that FPS will drop so much that you won't be even able to aim.

I think they need AA on ships - I had a buddy who told me they used ta get drunk all the time.. they would even drink the torpedo juice.. you know - the fuel the torpedoes run on. Buncha hammerheads http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Well I guess it was a form of alchohol..

So if AI ship AA gunners are assigned "drunk" setting, do they not fire, thus saving fps, or do they fire all the time for Fun, thus dropping fps below Zero even if the ship is not under attack?

Both! ..and er.. neither..

I guess it would depend on their frustration level.. you know.

If they had recent shore leave on some polynesian island etc etc.. they might be less inclined to fire those guns..
but if it has been a while ?.. well - you dont wanna be flying overhead then I'll warrant.
