Could we please get additional choices that would include the following in a future patch ???

1) Clear and windy day that kicks up the height and direction of the beautiful Water's waves. Have waves and swells to range from calm to heights of say 70ft during storms so we could watch them crash over the bows of the ships as they move along, hurling sea spray flying into the air! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif (Ability to choose velocity and direction of the wind and the strength of turbulance http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
2) Advancing Storm fronts with associated clouds, different types of lightening, windshear, and turbulance.
3) Multiple cloud types, layers and weather themes to enhance the depth and beauty of the sky http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.
4) Weather theams that allow weather to change over time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
5) Fall and Spring Map & Object textures for the 2 Missing Seasons of IL2FB-AEP-PF !!!

Please respond if you favor any or all of the above, or post your own weather/season related desires that you would like to see included in a future patch. Thank's IL2FB-AEP-PF Community !!!

Hey Fuser,


Aside from 5 everything COULD be covered by PERFECT WEATHER!!But we have "perfect water". http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

And fer 5 they prob decided against that cuz between the two extremes(winter,summer)and the two moderates(spring,autumn)there really isn't a diff.
Not that it matters cuz the weather engine would most likely need a whole other pc.
OR a way to link up with a major satelite weather company and have the program access real time data while the game uses period maps.Possible solution. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Oleg mentioned that in a future patch there was the possiblity for a new version of the clouds.

He said on a P4 2.2 with a GeForce 4 TI it was running with very good FPS but they were still working on optimizing it. Screens apparently to come soon...but sounds like it may have a bit of what your asking for.

But probably not all...even a visual upgrade would be great.

A "new version" meaning a rework of the existing or modeling totally different cloud types?

The SKY is our primary element. We have to "Live" in those planes until we either land or die http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif, so to have the multiple layers of different types of clouds along with the occasional up & down drafts and wind gust, sometimes solid overcast, building storms on the horizons, and periods of rain or snow, IMHO would add much needed depth, immersion and beauty to the sim.

I miss the fall colors of the land also. There are many skins out there for fall colors, however only Summer and Winter seasons to choose from. Maybe they can address that later on, but it seems necessary for me... lol

The water is great! Along with the new Splashes. I saw the splashes for the first time, and it instantly dawned on me that they could use a similar effect to turn the ocean into actual waves and swells. Now to me, I would really like to see 20 to 50 foot waves and swells at sea that were created by the choices of wind and weather settings. I believe it can be done, but perhaps they are wanting to create code that has minimal impact on FR's, so all we can do is hope for the best.

I just hope the developers actually read this and at some point address the different aspects of my request by letting me know if it can be done or not. I would definately be willing to even PAY for the patch if it was just a matter of needing to pay for programmers time to do it, so long as it turned out really cool.

Sod the visual updates. I just want weather which have the same effect on flying as it has out in the real world. Most of that isn't down to the visuals.

I wish we had separate setting for wind speed or/and direction not only this general choice "weatcher for idiots". One more I would like, really like to see carriers turning actually into the wind when we coming back from the mission. Now in bad weather looks like they do not care about wind direction.

Couldn't have said it better.

The one visual that is important is when judging whether that particular cloud is hazardous to go into/under or not.

"Sod the visual updates. I just want weather which have the same effect on flying as it has out in the real world. Most of that isn't down to the visuals."

You mean like multiple wind layers (with turbulence/shear) at different altitudes, multiple visibility layers, multiple temperature layers, multiple cloud layers with their own turbulence, variable icing conditions, and the like?

I agree it would add a lot to the sense of real flight and immersion would it not?

Dunno why you're so worried about weather at the moment, Fuser. I think you have your priorities all mixed up. Oleg really needs to focus here and I think he's completely ignored the most important element to a fighter pilot; women!

Where are all the dames? I mean this can't be realistic? Who ever heard of a world without women? I need a full level of immersion... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

LOL Raven!

You "know" how I feel about that subject! Just think of the sim time "missed" because of women! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I just enjoy talking about women, however, if I meet a woman opponent in the air, I will smile from ear to ear as I blast her and her plane to bits! LOL http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Good one Rav.

Just keep giving me God's good patch updates to this sim (Acft/Weather/Terrain/and eye candy), and I will be SOOOO happy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
