It would be good if the muzzle flashes could be reduced back to realistic levels in the patch. They are very cartoonish at the moment.

But we all know this.

We do?

cool, I thought I had no real world experience in the operation/appearance of large calibre aircraft cannon.

Thanks for setting me straight dude!

There's only one texture for muzzle flashes per aircraft AFAIK, and reducing it would be unrealistic during the night time.

It should change with the amount of ambient light, but that will most likely not appear until the next sim.

"and reducing it would be unrealistic during the night time."

Online, how many servers are set to nightime compared to those set to daytime?

Offline, I also never play at night time and I'm sure it's rather rare for many other players to play at nighttime.

if it was kinda transparent it would have looked way more realistic...

a compromise is definitely needed. Perhaps the flashes could be made smaller and more transparent, so that they don't look like fireballs in the daytime, and still show at night. right now muzzle flashes produce as much fire as a plane that is burning http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yes I think the game would be better with more realistic flashes. Not very many ppl fly night missions compared to day missions. We dont even have nightfighters in the game ffs. Please fix them.

There was about a 8 page thread about this not too long ago. 99% of people agreed they were too large and that it would not be changed. Have fun with this one.
