They are totally overdone. I watched warplanes taking of from a dry grass strip during an airshow..and there was no or just a very small dust cloud! So stop this eyecandy...concentrate on FM, DM and AI performamce, please!

I like it....It is realistic if you watch footage of a well used airstrip as planes takeoff during the Summer months.

No it is quite real.. playing departing from Grass, they do cause considerable amount of dust flying.. Though I agree that taking off in Concrete field it is bit overdone /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif but only on concrete..

I like it! Heavy powerful aircraft such as these flown from dry dusty strips would generate a bunch of dust.

It would be nice though if this was sensitive to weather, time of the year...... and concrete.

I sympathize though with the need and importance in addressing all the issues on FM's.

As an example the P-39's elevator response is so non- responsive at higher speeds as to be arcadish IMHO. Presently if there is any, any, need to pull "G" I just put the elevator against the aft limit, immediately and wait. I enjoy that bird ( P-39) now less and less. There's hard data to be found, with some research, to prove or dispute all these issues, its takes digging to find it.

Regards to all.

Why'd you post this in both GD and here? Make your mind up!
Cheers!
PS Bet you Oleg isn't going to take them out because a) most people like them and b) he's only just put them in. You are wasting your time. Sorry but there it is.

Ladies & gentlemen, this is the captain speaking. Thankyou for choosing to fly Mandarin Airlines. Those passengers sitting on the left-hand side of the aeroplane please make yourselves comfortable. Those sitting on the right... please look to your left!

Gotta say, i do agree partly, sometimes the dust is too much, depends what climate your from i suppose. no dust in England just Mud, would like to see them model that, lol.

but overall, its a nice touch, although i can imagine some pcs would really need an option to switch it off, like there is an option for that for the clouds, onlne, in the option menu.

Concrete or grass, I'm sure during a war not much time was spent cleaning runways......
Now it is necessary because of jet engine suction, but in WWII I think not much energy was spent keeping runways clean. It is a bit overdone, and it would be nice to adjust for weather conditions, but it's not all that necessary to do so, IMHO. I like it, it adds to the game.

First off....the dust is great!

But...

As far as cleaning concrete runways....no...nobody did it in WW2 and nobody does it now, except for FOD. I work at an airport, and nobody ever "cleans" the runways, the planes keep them spotless. Dust on concrete is wrong, but Oleg don't mess with it, it's a great addition to the game.
