I had severly damaged a HE111 in Campaign. It flew off, I RTB then watched the stricken bomber crashland.

The pilots bailed and ran off. 10 seconds later the bomber exploded. So far so good- BUT-
There were no flash fire explosion effect at all. No smoke. The plane just came apart by itself as if by magic.

I suspect this is part of the `anti-cheat` that`s caused vanishing fire problems. Not major but woth knowing.

Sorry, Oleg, but if I don`t say, you won`t know.

SeaFireLIV,

Actually this is not new to 1.22. This goes back to the first FB patch and it is, I believe, a feature to address a scoring problem. Previously, if a plane ditched and the crew bailed on the ground, the player would not get credit if the shot down plane stayed in one piece due to not being on fire. This could easily happen if you fill the wings with holes and "lightly" smoke the engines so that the E/A can keep flying but not maintain alt.

The feature now is that after a crew bails on the ground, the plane will "explode" automatically in 10 seconds in order to ensure the player gets credit for the kill.

HTH
