Has anybody ever seen something like this before?

I took damage to my wingtip in a co-op the other night. When I looked over, I saw this...

Any idea what caused it?

I don't know, just an idea.

I have seen that on the tail of a Buffalo in a Midway campaign. Odd isn't it!!? I changed the detail level (Object) and then reset it and this hasn't happened since.

What plane is that? I want to try and replicate it.

Either it's just a one-time thing, or maybe the modeler forgot to texture that part properly.

I've seen that once, too, but didn't take a screenie. Not sure what caused it.

What your seeing with the Japanese fighter is the wingtip cap that replaces the wingtip to simulate heavy damage. Since each part in an aircraft has it's own skin mapping telling the game how to apply the skin it's likely that the cap wasn't mapped correctly by the modeller or the mapping was messed up when it was imported into the game. In other words a bug.

i can explain what is happening at the tip of your wing, you see, whenever a new japanese plane comes to be, it buds from its parent plane, usually from the wingtips and then grows in due time into a full adult.

What you are beholding is a beautiful creation of a new japanese airplane...please let's watch in awe

Frizt Gryphon, that's on a Zero, A6M3 to be exact. I'm using a custom skin. If this is skin dependant, let me know where I can e-mail the skin.

This isn't that big a deal, I guess, it's just another one of those "After all this time, I've never seen that before" happenings. It just really piqued my curiosity. I think it's great that a sim this old still has new things to show us.
