View Full Version : O.M. what's about that effect?

Hi 1C
How's about an effect we actually missing in PF, but shown in the sequence below. Some kind of low-speed detonation of fuel that wraps the whole a/c in a large fireball, but afterwards the a/c is still flying further because of the low power of the explosion. Would be a nice effect if fuel tanks blow up after getting hit.

There's always been a lack of nice explosive effects in this game. This could take the game to another level of immersion.

You know the explosions one sees in the documentary's. It's there one second, the next there's a blinding flash, followed by billowing flame and black smoke, and the usual debris flying all over the place.

The game has this nicely done with a burning plane, but apply this to other objects and whoopy... "Let's go an blow up something...".

Dare I say it, but CFS2 had some nice explosions and sound effects for dying aicraft. I always found it very atmospheric, but maybe it was a little 'Hollywoodish', too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah that is pretty sweet there is a smaller smoke effect that is similiar to that.

You won't see it for FB unfortunately, Oleg has already said that any new weapons or advanced effects won't be added in at this stage.

There is always hope for BoB though. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
