Would it be possible to add an ordinace cam? In such a way you can follow it (like pressing F2 or F3)...all the way down to its target? Much like that venerable A-10 Cuba (wow thats so old)

Secondly, also if its possible to have a camera locked on ground targets (convoys, AAs, bridges)

I had posted this same thread in the gen disc. forum and alotta ppl also asked for a fixed gun cam view (b/c i hear they were actually on the wing and not inside the cockpit)...

Big +1

Not everything needs to be realistic all the time, some things should be added just because they are cool

Well, it doesn't even conflict with realism. Afterall, who's going to find it advantageous to follow a bomb down to it's target? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

GUNCAM VIEW!!!!!!!
That would be a great thing! Activating the guncam just as in thep lanes back then.. They start recording with an focus on the convergence point of the guns as soon as you pull the trigger and for the duration of your salvo. They do not show anything else like a aiming circle or that.. just the target and your bullets hitting it (well or not in my case)

That would defenetly be a cool feature..

MY hopes aren'T too high as Oleg seems not to be a fan of immersion and motivation as well as the proper atmosphere around. He is a brilliant engineer not a story teller and that might be the reason for the rather boring stuff OUTSIDE! the cockpit.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I'd already be happy if BoB would be as IL2 jsut with an added atmosphere.. he will know what i mean if fires up the old classics as there are all Aces of/over games, Red Baron and Falcon for the campaign engine http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Go Oleg Go and prove me wrong http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

excellent point! I agree with the atmosphere bit, any good game + atmospher = great game...

i like ur idea about the timed guncam view, it would be awesome.

anyone else with any suggestions?

http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Aye mate.. thought many sleepless nights about that and always buried the idea as I don't think we will get it.. so better not get too curious for it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

And compared to the sheer amount of good ideas regarding improving the atmosphere and motivational part of the game this one might be the least important one... ..but still an extremely cool one!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Imho the flight models do not need to be somewhat tweaked.. the game is fun to fly.. but the rest looks a bit depressing..

Oh btw.. the other feature i thought about for ages was adding your victory tally to the plane http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif to identify yourself more with the pilot you'Re flying and to help sucking players into the game. Yes guys there are a LOT people flying it offline and they need to be adressed as well. To be honest I think there are more offliners than onliners, but they have no or a small lobby here http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

The games I mentioned above did that REALLY nicely with small videos, newspaper articles, less sterile menus etc..

Awww... If Aces would just have the graphics of PF http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Blame me for my next statement but all major print game magazines here in germany recognized the lack of immersion and atmopshere as the major drawback of the whole IL" series, and especially PF. And I have not a single argument against it. As offline player (although a lot of guys do great work enhancing the SP/offline experience but they have little to work with - Hats off AcesHigh,Ian to name a few) you have a hard time with the game http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Ok.. my 2 (ok, 50) cents
