First, Thanks for a great sim and all the support! But the one thing that's really bothering me is those pillars of smoke every time I shoot down an air craft, they don't look very good and shouldn't last so long, can we lose them? I'd rather have longer lasting smoke and fires for ground targets...Tanks, fuel trucks, and facilities...well that's my only whine...thanks again.

Bump Ok! one other thing. Craters on runnways forcing you to chose alternate airfields! maybe for PF? air defence takes on a hole new meaning http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Is that a dangerously bad pun?

Maybe the crashes are one of the things from Il-2:2001: an Eastern Front Oddessey that just never got rebuilt.

But sometimes aircraft crash and just break up, without the column of black smoke.

I guess it could be a bad pun http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif but would be fun to come home to a field all beat to hell, when on line you'd need to leave some one back to defend...they used too just break up and explode but now I get 6,8,10 of these ugly black pillars that never go away, you take out a fuel truck and boom it's gone! no lasting fire or real smoke http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

I preferred the "smoking craters" to the "pillar of smoke" as well.

Yeah it gets to be a pretty big hit on the framerate when there's like 5 of them in the same area all at once.
