OK,this relates to AI.I don't like it when I'mlined up on the enemy and firing when one of my guys decides to fly in and get in the way.
It's like HELLLLOOO,I'm busy here!Stupid AI.
Also,heres another thing I've noticed about my not so smart friend AI.He doesn't have any honor.By that I mean when I have worked a long time chasing an enemy plane and slowly but surely have been shooting him up,and it'll only take one or two more shots to put him down,Mr. Goofhead Ai comes in and shoots once,and gets the kill.
It's like,how rude!Can you believe what that guy just did?Anyways I'm not really complaing.I love this game.AI is only so smart.
I can't wait to play online,and fly with "gentlemen".

Rodger,go with throttle up...

I hate the kill-stealing AI too but then I do it to them too now so it's all even stevens in the end I suppose.

whats worse is the ai gunners aim when flying bombers online they seem to shoot people covering you more then the enemy plane, they successfully cover you then rtb with you land first and says friendly aircraft shotdown -800 for 2 planes ai gunners tagged

I am reading a book right now by Bud Fortier who was a pilot with the 8th. From what I am reading friendly fire incidents were not uncommon. A lot of times the other pilot could not see below him that another plane was moving in on the same target. In the heat of battle very often pilots flew into each other's line of fire. Taking that into consideration you could say the AI isnt too far off.

I never keep score.

score is cool in the campaigns though and its what makes you look important and get promoted...

Waht you should do is avenge by killing your stupid AI "friends". I did that online just the other day! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I do it regularly in my Il-2 Stormovik offline campaigns. If one of my so-called "buddies" rams me, steals credit for my kill, or shoots thru me on a mission, leading to an unsuccessful conclusion, I refly three or four times, shooting the inconsiderate b*stard down repeatedly until I feel satisfied that he's learned his lesson.

It may be just my imagination, but the AI wingmen usually behave themselves for the next two or three missions.

Cheers

Good point,Bearcat,I didn't think of that.It seems to me that my guys fly in from above me into my line of fire.
I can understand how that in "the heat of battle",this could happen.With respect to "field of vision",and perhaps even "situation Awareness".
Ive even had my wingman crash into me.
Note--They crash into me Inever crash into them.... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

My principal gripe with AI...

When the wingman is supposed to be covering me and enemy is on my six my wingman just tags along. The enemy AI may be making hits on me and the wingman is flying alongside the enemy. I've even seen the enemy pass in front (not directly) and the wingman ignores him.

I think it has something to do with the mood my wingman is in. Maybe I should ask for help again...eh

Regardless, the AI are the best in any WW2 prop sim as far as I can tell. I've got about every WW2 prop sim you can buy as well,ie., CFS1,2,3, Jane's WW2F, EAW, Rowan's BOB,etc. I realize some of the other AI do some things better than the IL2-FB AI, but overall the IL2-FB are still the best of all.

Oleg has been quoted on the BOB, SimHQ boards that 1C:Maddox is seriously planning to improve the AI on an ongoing basis.

Frankly, I'd really like to see a better FMB as well...but he hasn't mentioned that. The way it is. Be glad you get what you get from 1C:Maddox.
