View Full Version : tho nicest AI feature in FB

for me is that AI pilots sometimes stall and
spin. I see it happens very seldom thou. In contrast to the other features of AI, like seeing
through the clouds etc, it gives a great feeling of reality. Have you noticed this and how often?

Never, I'll trade you my AI for your AI. Yours sounds like it exhibits flaws. Mine handle the Starwars flight models well enough that gravity and framestress damage are of no concern for them.
Yep, I'll trade ya.

It's because your stick is sending spikes, poor foo's can't follow the inputs fast enough, the stick software may be smoothing it out for you, but not them. Used to get this also, could send them flipping out and smashing the dirt very easily under G, till I upgraded to a stick with quality sensors. Now they are stable as a rock, never stall or flip.

stupid ai is constantly stealing my kills.

you work your way into a good position, you are about to pull the trigger and bammm one of those bastards in a LaGG comes screaming past, ripping your target to shreds.

*shakes fist at AI*

In last patch had AI pilots bale if I stalked them long and close enough-used it to score kills with no ammo- havnt seen it so much on the latest update.

I lek it that AI can be bounced. rarely, but it heppened to me in the offline camp. My second Rotte leader dived to a group of I-16 that were turning in formation. He placed himself behind the last one in the group, blasted him, rolled and exploded another. a second later I did the same. All 4 I-16 gone even before the first hit the earth below. They simply flew, not taking any evasive actions. Just like in RL http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif
