WIll SOW bob have the same or similar shadowing to KOTA. From this vid http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/4281098055/p/1
you can see how the illusion of height is a ream immersion factor and makes flying seem amazingly real. Im love the fact that u cant see 1000000 mile in evry direction because of the haze in the distance and below which is real in my view.
Also the size and scale of the world looked great. the planes were ot huge an dteh trees tiny evrything looked to scale like in real life.
However i was worried top see these pics http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/4281098055/p/1
of SOW BOB and it looks like a better version of il2 but u can see for miles and the illusion of heoght and object size is not there. the planes look big but agains trees evrything look tiny. When you up high there is no feeling of height.

What is oleg **** to make the virtual world seem real? So far im slightly dissapointed

Bro, if one is up high, wouldn't everything at a distance look tiny? Jus' puttin' that on da table...

Also, when one is flying high, wouldn't you be able to see for miles and miles? Ringin' any bells?

shiffty, how can you be disappointed with the graphics in BoB when we really haven't seen much of it yet. We've seen some things but not really that much...this is why developers tend not to release alpha screen shots to the community because people just don't get that stuff is still being developed. If I remember correctly, Oleg or someone on his team mentioned that what we've seen so far is some of the lower levels of detail and that not everything has been turned on yet. That was last summer...who's to say what it'll look like in another 6 months.

As for scale...remember that WWI biplanes are tiny in comparison to WWII fighters and bombers.

yes this is true but would you see other aircraft clearly like in il2 and the pics of BOB SOW. I hope i am wrong when the game comes out but im hoping BOB looks nothing like il2. The ground is too brigh and the time of day, be it 12 noon or 18:00 does not look real. i knwo its a game but improvements need to be made. And another thing why can we just have on big europ map, would it not be easy to have a scaled map so fuel management and navigation skills would be more extensively neede adding to emersion. Im not a fan of a couple of small maps with bits an pieces of countries.

your thoughts people?
