the smoke always seem to go straight up, even in a thunderstorm

Damn straight.

I choose option 5: Smoke should blow in the wind.

Smoke is undermodelled, be shure. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

Seems like you guys forget that Il2 engine is many many years old.

It is not smart to heavily modify old engine anymore. They should and probably are making best effort in making BoB engine better.

If they moved a little every now and then in wind, and perhaps fade more at the top, that should add to them looking real. Unfortunately, it may tax the CPU too much to do so it`s probably not workable.

I would prefer a reminder of my accomplishments in the game, such as killing my assigned ground target, rather than my failures - so many, it sometimes affects the frame rate! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Get rid of smoke columns all together! They are too much of a drag on framerates in big games where there's tons of crashed airplanes. Either that, or make it client-side.

There is no wind in FB http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif


I Vote for larger smoke clouds (offwhine play here), billowing much higher. My ATI 9200 does not notice even 30+ smoke billows even in Excellent high visibility settings.

That this Vote option was not offered suggests that the poll poster should replace his/her Trident integrated motherboard grafix chip with a ATI 9200 (called a "video card"). http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

no wind in FB? Ok well it would simulate and give the impression of wind if clouds billowed around a bit (in general the same direction of course).

It`s all an illusion and suspension of disbelief anyway!

I'd like to see FMB-placable smoke clouds. They'd be the same technique used for the regular clouds we have now, but they'd be black smoke clouds, and mission build objects.

It makes specatular shadows as long or longer than the pillars are high. Awsum effect for me. Also, the smoke pillars give some kind of feedback that you are actually flying over a recently battle contested area. There is never such a thing as Too Much visual battlefield feedback for FB.

That may be it.

With at least non~SE ATI 9200 (or Nvida equivalent) and higher you will be fine for smoke billows.

Yes, smoke should definitely blow with the wind. For that matter, why dont we have windsocks on the airfields!?!?! LOL seems funny in such a realistic sim to not have to take off or land into the wind, just pick any 'ol direction!
