i'have a little suggestion for the wave after the ship, every time i switch the view on the ship it seems like the ship are just started to move because they have not trace behind them..
i'm not asking to have a very long trace behind because i suppose them should lag the game... but normal trace instead of nothing should be e very good thing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

this bothers me too but i guess it is done that way to save resources

And when switching views to an already burning plane or vehicle, the smoke just starts to rise rather than seeing an already-formed smoke stack.

You want this extra detail for 'realism', but I would suggest that switching views is not realistic at all; if something spoils your immersion, it will primarily be from using externals, not the smoke/wake effects. Stay in your cockpit and you won't have this problem!

Seriously though. I think this is probably caused by the way current video cards handle effects, rather than the game code. The same thing happens when I play Flashpoint.
