Guys,

Well, my first day working at E3 with Ilya, Oleg and Starshoy was fun. I got to represent 1C to the folks at E3. I will also be there tomorrow and Friday. I left a bit early to get home to put up these pics for you, but I'm sorry for the quality. I have a new camera and I haven't mastered it yet. I will take much clearer pics tomorrow for you all. I learned a ton of new info about PF and woudl like to share. But I am starving and need some food first. I'll be back on in a few to list what I learned. Try and guess which one is me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif Here's a hint I am the American one http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

look again - the Corsair is hooked on to a trap wire - maybe the LSO is using it as a fan.

The holystoned Japanese carrier decks look good as do the redwood US carrier decks...

even though some of these pics are grainy - you can tell there are some nice touches.

Hey guyus,

Ya sorry about the bad pics. Better ones tomorrow. And yes that Corsair trapped as it bounced really high up and the cable brought it back down splat and boom ;-) You guys are gonna love landing on the carriers.

I don't know which was better, playing around with PF or when Jim from Naturalpoint came by to give me my TrackIR 3. It was Christmas in May for me.

Gibbage,

Yes I will be there tomorrow and Friday. E3 is too cool. I got a TrackIR 3 cause I have known Jim for 2 years ever since it first hit the market. I have advised him on marketing matters and other flight sim stuff pro bono. I am a Naturalpoint Beta tester along with several others. This was a gift for my help and continued testing. Also, Jim gave Oleg a unit to test with PF.

I have also tried to contact you many times Gib about So Cal events and such, but got no reply. I also tried to make the last LAN party, but family matters got in the way of me getting there at a reasonable hour. I hope to be at the next one.

Ok here is some info that I found out by talking to Luthier and Oleg today.

1. The water has been completely re-worked and now has many levels of sophistication. We now have swells, whitecaps, reflections and better color (more blue) and animation. Oleg said the waves were not finished and will look even better later on. Ilya said the water color has just been started and will be tweaked further. Also, there will be a few more notches above the Perfect water setting you see now. of course, they can be lowered for better frames etc..

2. The clouds are being improved. Bigger and more of them to simulate the scary weather of the Pacific Ocean.

3. The draw distance will be farther out to show islands and ships better.

4. There are now soldiers manning mortars, AA guns on ships and vehicles etc...they are low poly but add more realism. They may or may not become animated. Yet to be decided.

5. Aircraft carriers are totally HUGE and look awesome! Scaled to real world size. Good luck sinking these suckers. I was told there will be 9 different types of carriers.

6. There will be plenty of maps to choose from. Pearl, Midway, Phillipines, Southern China, Pellilue, Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, Wake,Tarawa, Southern Japan (Lets just say there will be many cool places) Also, Ilya says that he has so many good references and actual recon photos of the islands that he has been able to place buildings in their actual locations as in WWII.

Chew on that for a bit while I think of more things I can tell you. I don't want to give out any secrets I'm not suppossed to.

Also, all or some of this may change. You all know that already, but don't take my word for gospel. It's just what I heard today.

7. Don't count on elevators being used on carriers. No real time to program this apparently. However, on mission start there will probably be something like the first 4 planes having there wings down and locked for takeoff. Everyone else has to unfold theirs prior to takeoff. So, yes folding wings will be featured.

8. Ilya also said that canopies will open and close.

9. Oleg also told me that he prefers Nvidia's drivers for PF over ATI for now. Matter of fact the Demo was running on a GeForce 6 6800 vid card. The drivers are still very young and not super stable, but I saw a lot of cool games running on both ATI X800 and Geforce 6 6800 very smoothly. Especially the new Star Wars games that are coming out.

10. Also, it doesn't look like there will be a CFS4 from M$.

11. Kamikaze missions will be featured, but no Ohka in initial release. Also, some Japanese pilots may not have parachutes and try to crash into whatever American pilot is nearby. This may or may not be programmed, but is being considered.

12. Pitch and Roll of the carrier may or may not be modelled. No decision on that yet they told me. That may require a huge re-working of the code.

I like the "some." http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif 777, they need to be ~very~ careful here. All nations' pilots often sacrificed themselves when they were damaged far from home, over enemy base or enemy troops and ships. This is not just a Japanese Feature. Everybody did this, from time to time.

Thanks for feeding the trolls...I mean us. We are very hungry.

13. Planeset. I really don't know the final planeset and don't want to get into trouble on this. So, suffice to say there will be 40+ flyable including the Beaufighter and probably around 100 aircraft in total. Plus a few hundred new objects. Also, ILya said there will be plety of flying boats in theatre. I have no idea if any flying boats will be flyable.

14. Stand-Alone vs. Expansion: It will definitely be a stand-alone product to start. Whether or not it can also be an expansion or maybe done as a Gold Version box set has NOT been decided yet.

Gentlemen, I believe that 2nd Corsair pic is the infamous "OOOOPS" manuever. It is highly recommended that you NOT try this.

You will become very unpopular with the deck crew when they have to clean up after you.

Like I've said many times before, the landing gear spring will need to be toned down considerably in PF.

100 planes. Just for PF ? Add that to the ones we have now for FB-AEP, that's close to 250 total ? Wow.

Tell Oleg, while he's at it reworking the water, might as well do a proper sub sim too and he'll give even "Silent Hunter III" a run for it's money.

Anyway, that's a lot for me to digest in one sitting. Thanks again.

Wow.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif mmm 777 said they were still not sure about Compatibility between FB and FP. We must start a campaign over this. I mean we have I~153 and I~16 from FB so it should be able to meet the Ki~27 from FP. And all the early Japanese and Soviet bombers too. Maps must work between them too.

From what Luthier~1 said when this board first started, he said FP should be able to read and get data from FB installation. I don't know how that works but if so I will probably usually run FB stuff from withing FP. But as 777 said they are still thinking about this so...not sure. I have been really depending on this. You know when they used to use Yak~1 for Spit campaigns? Well one of the early Pacific carrier bombers or something would let us fly along with friendly Su~2 formations in an Su~2 campaign...or R~10...the possibilities when you mix these two sims is infinitely more than each one combined seperately....the FB and FP together are greater than the two seperated. Again the maps would hopefully be compatible too.

Also think of the use of FP planes for Med simming against German/Italian FB land based planes.

I REALLY hope we'll get pitch & roll following weather conditions! (and why not, even more terrible storms http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif?)

Are you still taking question requests Burnin'?

If you are can you please ask Luthier how he's getting on with the campaign data/hunt for said data etc.

(I ask as I've been trying to reach him for ages now with the requested data for RAF & RNZAF and I've got no response, so I'm wondering if they've started, or he even got what I sent him http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif )
