Man o man I cannot wait for BoB to come out.. I know the theater and planeset will be limited.. and for that I still have this sim.. but that looks stunning. You will have to watch it more than once to really appreciate it.. If BoB looks that good we are all doomed. Kiss your wives goodbye and strap in.

cool...

I wonder why they don't show any "in-game" cockpit shots.

Graphics are nice. Tracer effects appear very overdone though, and the flying seems very jittery. Like the planes are moving on rails.

Maybe we should ask Oleg if the current/planned visuals in SoW will be comparable to what BoP has.

I thought it was PDG... as for the planes on rails. I was watching this thing on the military channel.. compaing the F4F & P-38 to the Zero.. they were talking about Kurt Bong & the famous Sakai vs Pug duel.. anywqay the planes looke a lot like that video.. I am talking about the live shots.

I hope that SOW will be far better then this console game.

the gun flash and tracers are very poor in my opinion.

this video was already posted here (nothing against you Bearcat, just saying).

and, Oleg is not working in this project.

this may be using partial SOW engine, and I think it's only with graphics.

I thought they said BoP used the il2 engine?

but either way there is no way you can say the graphics are bad :P forget the jittery flying, look at the scenery and the planes. gameplay is not the same as graphics http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I personally dont mind about realism of tracers, since I've never seen a real tracer (movies dont count), so I dont have anything to compare it to.

Birds of Prey uses its own graphic engine and only used some of the FM code from the IL-2 engine. I was initially concerned that BOP graphics looked alot like what weve seen in early SOW screenshots and videos, but according to Oleg, and Luthier, SOW graphics will be far superior. BOP has the best scenery I've seen in a flight sim so SOW graphics must be something else. Can't wait.

Hopefully it will come out on the Wii and I can hold a controller in each hand and hold them extended to each side and run about the room making Rata-tat-tat noises! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ... otherwise I'm stuffed because I just spent my gameing budget for the about the next 5 years on a new PC! I'll be watching the video's on YouTube! (Sob http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif Sob!)

Flight Sims have come a long way since the first MS-Flight Sim!

Thanks for the videom Bearcat. I haven't seen it before. As I often fly the Stuka I only can pee in my pans while looking at the Spitfire shooting. The video was marvellous!

I have one (funny) question...

Does this game boast IL2 at all?
I mean it's called IL-2 Birds of Prey http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif .

I was wondering the same thing. Will this be the first Il-2 game without any Il-2 in it?

Since this seems to be an dogfight-focused sim for the twitch 'n' grin console crowd, I would be surprised to see anything as "boring" as a ground attack aircraft make it in. Except maybe as AI-flown.

And the damage shown in that Spitfire wing looks an awful lot to that shown in the SoW damage screens. I mean, it's not just a similar hole, but identical at all in every rug and bent sheet of metal.

I know it isn't related at all, but it really requires a suspension of disbelief to admit it... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

I does look nice.
All we know is that Oleg and the Gaijin fellow ( I cannot remember his name) have both said (even Luthier) that BoP has nothing to do with SoW. They are two completely different projects.
SoW has much more going into it and I am really looking forward to seeing how much.
