Well, im sure some of you are rolling their eyes - but to me its new, and its like a rerun, if i havent seen it, its new to me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I noticed it after my engine overheated, and i was watching the track, and lo! those puppies moved and caught my eye!

Now i am on a quest to discover what it looks like on other planes...

Try opening rads on I-185, you can see them from inside the cockpit. Its really sweet, and you don't need the text display to tell you what rad position they are in.

The cowel flaps on the Corsair are fun to look at too.

The rotating cowl ports on the front of the I-16 is pretty cool too, as are the trailing edge radiator shutters on the Bf109s and underwing units on the british aircraft.

its really obvious in the lagg both in external view and because it handles like a dog with cowls open

the 109 cowls positions are visible from the cockpit which, until Oleg gives us a non cycling radiator control, is probably the plane of choice for "hud off" for that reason

you should watch the mustangs rad open, pretty niffty, samething on the Thunderbolt. I can't remember where I read it at, but one model of the 47 had cowl flaps that opened to a nearly vertical position.

Check out the intercooler flap on the bottom of the Corsair.

Yep, those are kewl......Also is it just me? or is everyone now able to see control surfaces moving on everyother plane wherein before we couldn't?

The thing I'm curious about though is if on the A6M2-N if the oil cooler flap opens near the front top of the main front float support...anyone?

Check out the hellcats then.

here is a funny one i like, we all know.

When you dogfight the AI , switch over by using ctrl+F2 to his plane, and you see he is watching you, all the time, hahaha now thats a good detail

I love details like this! I have spent hours watching 'AI non-flyable plane' undercarriage lowering...


(oh, and AI flyable planes too!)

Hang on! That sounds really sad!

Both of these are cool. I actually use the cockpit view of the rads on the 109's when I want to get a bit more slippery. I'll override the auto setting, close them and pay extra attention to trim for those last few kph.

The Hellcat looks pretty wicked with the flaps open.

Do you mean that hole in the front at the top of the float support? If so then no, it remains a hole with no animation.

Little details like this really make us appreciate the sim even more http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

A bit more details that I can think of:

** Yellow life raft behind the cockpit of the F4F - sometimes visible when you got a damage hole on the plane.

** If you use custom skins, parts of the plane when disintegrate from the plane still use the skin.

** Tailhook sparks (although it still spark flames on wooden carrier deck or grass runway, but it still a cool small detail worth mentioning)

** When a plane explodes midair over the water, every parts create their own splashes.

** As mentioned earlier, the AI turn their heads to look at you - if you're the flight leader or if you fighting against them. Same thing when they're fighting against AI controlled enemies.

** Attack a convoy and you'll see little guys running for their life. Still amazes me until now http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

But why doesn't it fall off the table when you roll the plane?

Another Russian object defying gravity? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
