View Full Version : Quick idea for hard crashes

I was watching some China-Burma-India theater guncamera footage of planes slamming into the ground about a week ago, and something occured to me.

Right now, when a plane crashes and explodes, there's a relatively small, fast 'bang' explosion, all the parts fly off, and a greasy ground fire breaks out. It works pretty good, I suppose.

What would make them REALLY convincing, though, is if the 'sliding' fireball from the German AB250 / AB500 weapons was added on impact, and 'slid' in the direction the plane was going.

Just a small idea.

I couldnt agree more, the lightest ground hits usually explode your plane, in 1.1 The planes could take more landing punishment without exploding and slide further but it has been removed, also right now theres absolutly no point in belly landing because if your engine is un operable from damage, or you propstrike you dont get the points. But i do understand that people would bellyland all the time rather the attempting to land normally. My solution would be rather then the engine being damage and not giving points, have if a wing rips off it said you crash landed and dont give the points, also the team collisions -400 for when someone collides into you is a little drastic dont you think

Also a different texture then a bomb impact crater would be nice for planes hitting the ground and exploding

Great idea,PlaneEater. If it's implemented,I'll still try my best not to let that happen when I'm flying your P-40s.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
