View Full Version : Possible entry for future combat flight sim?

Say you are entering the game @ fly or later to refly, and an enemy aircraft is attacking your airfield, could you give the entering player an alternative to back out (before his plane is shot) and reenter as an Anti Aircraft Artillery gunner on the field (You could be killed here too, but would have a fighting chance). Then after said attacker is downed, the ground gunner could then choose refly to acquire his aircraft of choice or continue to post himself at that ground position. Would any pilots like this alternative or is this a bad idea?

You can already do that. It's called a TB-3.

But seriously, player-controlled ack would be fun. I just wouldn't want it detracting from the flight sim aspect.

Plus, then people would want playable tanks and boats... and it'll turn into some WWII:OL mess.

Besides, it's much more fun to weave down the runway while a vulture mows you down.

Or, if the dogfighter can get into the air, he/she can fly to Defend the airfield.
