I'm still kind of partial to FB 1.22 actually.

02-22-2006, 06:05 AM
4.03 without the wobbles

02-22-2006, 06:08 AM
Neither, I actually preferred 4.02!

3.04 was too "rails" and 4.03 feels like a concession back to "rails" again.

Granted with 4.02 I couldn`t hit anything and with 4.02 I can hit targets a lot easier now. But I don`t `feel` it`s as real as it was...

Roger that guys, I realise that I must make some changes to my poll.

02-22-2006, 06:24 AM
4.0 beta or 4.01.
I wouldn't comment on accuracy though.

02-22-2006, 06:26 AM
Hey, if you change your poll question now, will I have to vote again? Or will my vote remain counted on a question already changed?!

Wait a minute, are you are rigging the poll?! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

4.x for me. I like beta-testing. It makes me very loyal to the new product, when released. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif

I liked 4.01 the best but 4.02 is better than 4.02 imho by a big margin.

Agree 1000%. Exactly the same FM is better by a big margin on some days, too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

4.0 Beta6 IIRC

I like all the 4.0X patches.

It justifies my reason for getting pedals! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

4.03, but the machine guns dont feel right to me at all in 4.xx
(I havent played 3.xx online extensively so I cant say how they compare)

That track is priceless!


Wonder how he did that...

02-22-2006, 10:02 AM
3.xx seemed good and then 4.xx blew it away

02-22-2006, 10:07 AM
I hate it when you feel like your not flying (i.e. when you're on rails in 3.X) but I would like to see the exaggerated lateral oscillations damped down a bit more in 4.0X.

I liked 4.02 quite well. There were definitely some question marks, but the physics overall were quite well-done.

Don't have enough hours in 4.03 now to make an educated statement.

02-22-2006, 11:32 AM
V.4.02 for me, I'd say. The current ain't bad either, OTOH...

02-23-2006, 01:05 AM
i like the realistic

02-23-2006, 08:24 AM
I like a lot the new flight model, It's more challenging to try aiming your guns an now I'm use much more my rudder

02-23-2006, 08:55 AM
I'm still undecided. In 4.03, I bust into a sweat on landing final approach and probably stick no more than ~50% of my landings now. In that regard, I miss my old 2.04. Landing in 4.03 is like a death sentence for me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

Oh, ****, the torque effect is indeed deadly. If I am low and slow, there is no way to smash the throttle forward and fix it, this will drop me out of the sky instantly. I noticed that I shoot my landings from a longer final than in earlier versions, in order to be stabilized (not to touch anything) during the last few hundred meters before touch-down.

02-23-2006, 11:27 AM
I like the introduction/enhancement of torque, gyroscopic effect, P-factor, ground effect, flaps influence on aileron efficiency, aerodynamic focus relative to AoA (I've got an extremely foggy idea of what the latter actually may be, but I like it to be there anyhow)...

Great poll, Kuna http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
Meaningful info coming from a poll for once http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif


02-23-2006, 12:36 PM
Thx. It seems that roughly 80% players like newer physics (pre-BoB). With the introduction of v4.04, I am joining the bandwagon big time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

P.S.: For the record, my previous post was right before 4.04 was out http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Now it's possibly too early to tell, but it's feelin' even better.

02-23-2006, 02:34 PM
I prefer 3.04, the true is that if its later patch, than the game is more biased to light fighters. On 3.04 i could outclimb in fast climb with my Anton most of enemy planes, even BF109. I never had any problems with aiming so i dont see much difference in aiming, it was just 30 minutes to learn new system. Anyway, i think that the best was beta 4.00, i didnt checked all phicics there, but it was looking most realistic.

> For the heavy American fighers (P-38, F6, F4-U, etc.) - 3.04
> For everything else - 4.03

The Corsairs and Thunderbolts are very good in the 4.X series, they just require a bit more careful flying now than in the 3.X series.
