Can the graphics engince/physics engine handle an aircraft carrier? Everything but the arrestor gear should be moddable from the current engine. I guess the cables and the physics of stopping the plane would be the only hard part.

If so, THANK YOU!

Oleg has posted on this question before. Unfortunately, his answer was, "...no, however it will be possible in future sim". By that, I take it he was referring to what is now being called BOB. He has indicated in that interview he did recently, that many theaters of the war would be added to the BOB game in future installments.

So, I think we can look forward to a carrier sim from Oleg sometime after BOB comes out. I'm sure that if he devotes half as much attention to detail as he has in his work up to now, we will all be in for a real treat. I, for one, can't wait!! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Hmm I remember reading something more like ...the game engine does not preclude carrier ops... kind of comment. Anyone confirm or deny?

Oleg has said the notion that the FB engine can't handle carrier ops is not true. He said they just haven't taken the time to do the appropriate coding...

I may have misquoted Oleg's exact remarks, however I do recall him saying that carrier ops would not be seen in FB. That I am sure of, regardless of what the game engine is, is not capable of doing. I distinctly remember this since I was one of those pleading for him to include it in a future add-on for FB, possibly a Med/N Africa theater of operations. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Yes, he said it. FB engine could be handle carriers but....there isn't time now to reach this target.

during the last Sturmovik Awards I asked him if they intended to model carriers and implement them. His answer was "no", but its been quite a while and I think they may eventually do it. BTW, Luthier's plans for a new sim based on the FB engine do include 26 ships. that is much more than the ships in CFS2, AFAIK

Some things are worth fighting for...
And most of them wear mini skirts.
