View Full Version : Anyone seen this with Floaters?

11-20-2004, 07:04 PM
In a Mission I was in a A6M2-N and on Patrol with out encountering the enemy or any fancy loop the loop flying, one of my wing floats broke off?

Now at first I thought it must be part of the mission, so I ended the mission and had a look at the script, nothing about a handicap!

So I went in again , and again I lost a wing float then the 2nd one, this is all without a shot being fired at me.

I noticed to that the plane would jerk and I mean jerk to the left a few times?

And I don't think it was anything to do with Wind Torque or any of that as I had picked Easy for the flight all real flying options turned off?

anyone> bug? unlucky twice?

I read somewhere that there is a bug with fixed gear and float planes. Supposedly these planes lose their gear and floats at 400+kph. I don't know for sure though.

Yep same thing, after reading this I went into the game and sure enough lost a float.

noticed the same thing including the sudden jerks to the left. another really cool part of this float plane though, after I lost both wing floats and safely landed on only the center float, I was able to right the plane and take off again. Really cool

Yup, all fixed gear tear off at 400km/h except for maybe on the J8A and then they go into these funky left hand jerks.
