Hello


I have been playing IL2 since the first came out and I still fly online pretty regularly
I'm still amazed by the amount of details this simulation has , how realistic it is, and admire the developers relentless quest to improve it day by day..

However one thing strikes me every time when I fly mission who involves attacking ships. Ships just sink! - There is no fire there are no real explosions ,except the water gushing up the air. I believe Naval attacks are one of the most dramatic attack scenarios you can have, yet it seems to be completely featureless in Il2- IL2FB.. !?!?!

The reason why I'm so astonished about this is because everything else is taken care of so well. I was wondering if you are planning to include these sort of feature enhancement in your next update?

It might not be priority looking at your excellent weekly development updates.but in any case it would be really worth while and add greatly to this superp simulation.

i totally agree. the ships really need more sinking animations. but u must remember this is not a pacific sim. its not really based around water attacks. but anyhow it would be great to see some continuous explosions, and billowing smoke coming from a ship going under. i like the way the water explosion looks when a missile hits the water in lomac.

Yeah , its not a naval simulation, but as you stated secondary explosions, fire smoke billowing are really a features who should be added - I remember years back on (TAW - F22sim), crude graphics but the ships had fire , secondary explosions and even sank point down in order where hit.that was really great fun!!..anyways ,I'm not programmer and stuff but I don't think this it would be too hard to add to IL2FB.

I agree...oil slicks alight with billowing smoke would really add to the game and the secondary explosions are much needed.

Definately cool things to add for sure. I just not entirely impressed with the way the ships take damage either. It seems to be all or nothing...I hit battleship with an entire 2 second burst from the Me-262's quad 30mm cannons straight into the bridge and all of the gun stations were still firing after I pulled up with no noticeable damage.

Minor gripe but it'd be nice if it worked this way too http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Maybe next simulation.

ahh.. just like in CFS2 .. some nice user-mods were out for sinking ships ... oil and smoke and everything ...

But maybe the next Maddox-*sim* has more naval details /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I agree!
Even on CFS3, when a ship sinks, it takes some time and it leaves a big nice spot of black oil...

Ohh well, the war on the east has always been a land-war and, there where a few ships involved but, not many.

Even if this is an eastern-front-based game, it would be nice if they paid equal attention to all aspects of the game. Like in all the MS CFS and FS games, the planes are spectacular, but the ground FX are really bad.
