And I just keep wondering when will he get fed up with questions that clearly show those who ask them dont know Il-2 either http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Here is the new portion of your questions to Oleg.


1) Will wings visibly flex? (Or even just the effects?)

When we will have in future the planes where it is visible in reality probably yes. But say on Ju-88 it is invisible (at least in flight with high G for sure)

Evgeny wrote:
2) Will any tweaking be made to multiplayer support that may take over Hyperlobby, and support ladders?
Will be new multiplayer code.
Evgeny wrote:

3) Will there be a drop down window for coops so we can save server address ?
Probably. But by another way.
Evgeny wrote:

4) Are we able to choose exactly what type of ammunition we want for our ammunition belts? What I mean is can we choose the types of bullets that we want. If we want to load Gun 1 with all HE and Gun 2 with all Tracer, or no Tracer and Gun 3 with 4 AP and 1 Tracer, or 2 AP and 3 Tracer etc. If we could custom load each ammo belt, this would really open up a lot of possibilities for the virtual pilot.
It will depending of mission. And limits defined on server.

Evgeny wrote:

5) Oleg, will you improve how overheating is modeled in BOB
The complex model of engine work is more advanced.

Evgeny wrote:
/ 6) Can we have more realistic vision effect for high G (loose peripheral vision)?
I do think we have the most realistic for the computer visualisation.

Evgeny wrote:
7) I would really like to know how the briefing / debriefing will look like and what info from mission will it contain (offline and online). If not secret maybe some pictures ?

Next year will show maybe

Evgeny wrote:

Is the flyable plane set completely decided on, (including different marks of planes we already know), or not yet?
. Completely decided. Don't ask too much. Because maybe some of them could be removed and later coming in add-ons
Evgeny wrote:

9) Will SoW take advantage of multi-core setups, dual or even quads?
Will.
Evgeny wrote:

10) Centrifical force- will this be modelled in BoB?

Example: a wing gets shot off: the resulting G-forces on the pilot may be such to keep them pinned (and disoriented) in the cockpit.The same as like if one has many coins in a sock that one spins around keeps them from coming out the open end.
Maybe. If you mean centrifugal force

Evgeny wrote:
11) I can see that doors of Br-20 aircraft are openable - does it means, that the pilot would be able to go through the doors, to get in to the aircraft, or to get out of the aircraft?
Maybe in future. Engine in principle allow it.
Evgeny wrote:

12) I was wondering about a few aspects of mission building for BoB SoW...will we have options (or AI features) like: if Stuka raid fails to remove "radar" tower(s) RAF fighter intercept will find targets (German bombers) quicker? or If AI fighter runs out of ammo he must return to base to reload?
Radars will play right role. Reload planned at the moment for online gameplay.
Evgeny wrote:

Will cloud's provide inviability from the AI?
Yes
Evgeny wrote:

Will AI fighters have a blind spot (below)?
Yes. But not a spot. Some area.
Evgeny wrote:

Will we be able to program "campaign's" with options concerning supply (if factory or truck convoys destroyed repairs can not be made)
Too early question
Evgeny wrote:

Will we be able to surprise AI defense with tricks like low altitude attack? (like a tree top approtch)
Yes. Some time in some places.
Evgeny wrote:

Will we be able to design missions in campaign mode where we have to make command decisions that will effect out come of future actions? (example: if we split our bombers into 2 groups and bomb and airfield and a sea-port at the same time, some RAF fighters will be called away to defend the first (closer) air-strike and the second German raid will meet smaller defense? But if all bombers attack one airfield they have a more difficult defense?)
Can't answer it now.
Evgeny wrote:

Will we be able to kill AI gunners in bombers and/or will they run out of ammo?
It is in IL-2.
[quote="Evgeny"]
Will the radio commands to AI wingman (squadron) feature be expanded (improved, fine tuned) in BoB SoW? (maybe voice recognition feature?) New one.
Evgeny wrote:

WILL WE be able to build maps?
Yes. But only small. Big maps we will keep for ourselves that to release new series of sims.
Evgeny wrote:

13) Will there be different versions of the Bf-109 E? E-1, E-3, E4 or E-7 /B?
E-1 Sure no.
Evgeny wrote:

Will it be possible to fly in different formations? Like the Schwarm and Vic? And be able as a flightcommander to change formation and spacing between planes inflight?
Try in Il-2. In BoB it is improved.
Evgeny wrote:

Will it look more realistic when a pilot bails out of his plane? In Il-2 the pilot sometimes goes through the plane when he bails out in the air, on the ground he exits the cockpit by jumping 3 meters straight up in the air and in water he run instead of swimming. Will this be modeled more realistic in SOW:BOB?
Can't answer it now. Maybe in time. It is complex animation of pilot at first...
Evgeny wrote:

Will your plane crash if you fly into a tree?
In Il-2 we have two types of trees - with collision model and without. These that are without are graphical feature and loads with maximum settings. It was don that to make equal gameplay of players with different power of their PC and its settings. In BoB we will have only type with collision model.

@ Kalle

About the AI reload thing I think it will be a necessity.
A dogfight map has to have some sort of limiation to the ai concerning fuel and ammo.
If they wouldn't be able to reload and refuel you'd have to have them land after their whatever pattern and then simply spawn a new plane.
Thats not really an elegant or the most practical solution, as it would require more script and trigger work then giving them the routine in question "out of factory".

Isnt centrifugal force already modelled in this sim to a degree? I seem to remember being pinned in the cockpit of my P-39 on occasion... and still depending on the degree of flatspin it will happen.

It is indeed. If you loose one wing and start rolling at high speed there is no way you can bail. It's happened to me a few times.

Kinda sad seeing Oleg having to answer questions that anyone who`s flown IL2 should know better to ask. I mean i`ve been stuck in an aircraft unable to bail when spinning. i`ve killed AI gunners in bombers. i`ve seen AI run out of ammo, etc... silly little questions from some who`ve become so fixated that AI don`t do this that they must bug Oleg about it rather than with GOOD questions.

No wonder he`s started being sarcastic with "Sure no." http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

It`s funny. just went online in the P51 - got my wing took off by an me262. The centripedal force slammed in the cockpit and I fell 3000 feet unable to bail or do anything about it. Spending 20 seconds knowing you`ve had isn`t fun, but it proves that it works in IL2!

lol Ouch. some of you guys are gonna be hitting the trees harder than Sony Bono!.rofl


What i'd really like to know is if (and Bearcat will agree with me here) as if there will Custom Squadron Insigna/Regimentals for Coops and Online gameplay. Also will there be online squadron command & control upport in the interface like current pilot rosters, killbaords, pilot records ect. for online squadrons. If not could these things be added by 3rd party.

Someone give me a link to that 1c forum plz i lost everything in the rebuild. :-(

I'm guessing that this has something to do with comoparative thought? The Human mind often relates to things in a comparative way based upon the experiance of the individual.
in other words, If a person has never tasted snake before...they have no experiance or knowlage of it, and so thier mind automatically realates it to the most common of things that it has knowlage of. Chicken being the most commonly consumed form of poultry on the planet, everyone knows what chicken tastes like.
So the mind automatically realtes & compares it to chicken.
that's my therory on it.

Shame about the trees. I like the non-solid ones.

Individual trees shouldn't all be rock solid. A lot of them should have some flex in them, especially if you just brush the tops or the sides.

I never knew the reactive force was also (or should I say properly) called centrifugal force. That makes sense. I concede that I made a misstatement, but I stand by my original assertion. Oleg was beyond a shadow of a doubt talking about the non-existent centrifugal force when he referred to it in his answer.
