http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif Have that guy in your avatar sit on top of your cockpit. Surely AI gunners will take notice and aim for him instead!

Really, perhaps you could step on the rudder, shaking the nose around, throwing his aim off, and messing the lead.

That might work with some human gunners but AI, not sure...

Yes

Don't let him get into a firing position to be able to shoot at your plane. If its coming from a gun turret on a bomber you are approaching too slow and staying behind for too long. Get in there fast for a few quick bursts and then get out for another run!

If they gave us 6DOF we could at least duck http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

if its bombers you are having trouble with try coming in from underneath and once teh bomber is almost directly over you nose up fire into the belly fly past and above and do the same from above .. just do not get target locked and hit him instead of flying past

Remove that Avatar and replace it with one that meets the forum rules as posted here (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/6921088204/m/4251091304)

File size primarily. At 87.1 KB it not only exceeds the 15KB limit for avataras mentioned by UbiRazz in the Test Forum general rules thread, it also exceeds the 40KB limit that applied in this forum prior to an Ubisoft wide limit being introduced.

There is also an argument to be made against the subject matter, but in light of the file size that's irrelevant at this point.

Speaking of 6DOF ... will this infact give us the ability to duck and dodge a bullet? Move our head to the side and have the bullet wisk by our ear? Is this too much to ask?

Nothing is too much to ask, I am also a regular visitor at the "head blown off, need new one" department (a.k.a., "blank screen" syndrome), but it may be too much (cost) to develop. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

In the netmessages file, there are game messages implying a headshot and other various forms of regular air-combat death:

gore_pk1 {1} is killed by {0}.
gore_pk2 {0} riddles {1}''s body with bullets.
gore_pk3 {1} meets a violent death.

gore_pk301 {1}''s chest is blown open with {0}''s 30mm shell.
gore_pk302 {0} puts a cannon shell through {1}''s body.
gore_pk303 {1}''s chest explodes like an overcooked sausage.

gore_headshot1 {0} scores a headshot on {1}!
gore_headshot2 {0} kills {1} with a headshot!
gore_headshot3 {0} beheaded {1}!

gore_throat1 {0} puts a round right through {1}''s throat!
gore_throat2 {0} shoots {1} through the neck!
gore_throat3 {1} chokes on {0}''s bullet!


But I NEVER EVER see these messages in game? Is my installation corrupt or something? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Those lines are limited to the "high gore" setting. You must set high gore to 1 in conf.ini file to see these lines in game.

A few times after being shot I had absolutely no control of the plane at all. I figured the hydraulics control system was busted, but I couldn't turn off my engine or eject or anything.

Does this mean cockpit death/dead pilot?

If you have G Effects turned on, the screen goes black when you die. If you don't, then nothing happens, except you can do squat with the plane. So I dunno, maybe your hands got shot to pieces?
