I collided with a bi-1 in a bf109 my wing went off but the bi-1 kept flying without out any damage at all, i cant imagine that colliding with another plane and still flying afterwards, seems like the russian planes survive collisions more than german ...

Well it`s easy to vent just after this has happened and write here, but I`ve had exactly this happen when flying an LA5 and colliding with a FW. It flies merrily on while I hit the dirt.

I think the collision detection just gives priority to certain aircraft depends who hits where... It needs looking at, but it`s livable.

A feature introduced to stop deliberate online ramming of team-mate, the collision physics leave something to be desired. Don't collide and it's not a problem.

If you must collide, make sure the other plane hits you from behind and that you're going a lot slower than him, that way you're (usually) the one that survives /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif .

Yes, the evil post-Commies have probably contrived a cunning plan to steal our precious body fluids, and it somehow involves the collision engine of their flightsim. The only way to escape them, is by hidding in a bunker deep in the mountains. Go boy! Go! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

tully its not deliberately done, is it. Its a problem with the collision modeling and does need to be fixed so many h2h collisions seem one plane survives.

Its just as bad as cfs2 collision bubble, but at least it could be reduced http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

NOTHING could be as bad as the CFS 2 collision bubble /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif



"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall

A couple of times I've found that one plane gets its tail section ripped off for the loss of my control surface on the wing. Its very odd, happens very infrequently...but eh...I live with it.

Most of the time its flaming ruins for all involved.
