View Full Version : Mosquito Bomb Bay doors...???

05-31-2008, 09:54 PM
I was wondering why when flying the Mosquito Fighter bomber version theres no way to open the bomb bay..yet when I get near the target and hit auto pilot they open automatically, yet If Im flying non auto the doors stay shut. The ss below will give you an idea on what Im trying to stay..

Can anyone advise me as to why this is happening? Ive tried all the button configs too. Thanks.



And here they are on their way to closing once I took AP off. Strange?

Advise you as to why this is happening? No big secret, really. The bomb bay doors are programmed to open automatically when a human pilot hits the 'drop bomb(s)' command.

On the other hand, if you're intimating that you would have programmed it differently....that's another story.

Well youre incorrect then cause I wasnt hitting any weapon or weapon release key and I have adjusted any of my weapon keys. I wasnt dropping any bombs, I was simply going from auto pilot to non auto pilot.

It's the same with all AI control of planes. For some reason no bomb door open command for humans was programmed in but the AI acts as if it existed.

Oh ok well thats something anyway, thanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I was wondering my if my install was ok or if Id 'broken' a config or something.

Yeah what you say does sound a bit naff ready, why did they make it like that I wonder? After all when the auto pilot opens then you can see the bomb load there waiting..hmm :/

if your an experienced bomb attacker who knows exaktly when to drop to hit the target you might want to hit the buttom half a second earlier to allow the bomb dors time to open.

and yes the AI for some reason can open the door before they reach the drop point.

When on autopilot the AI is in control. The AI has the ability to open the bomb bays. What the AI will do is when between a regular waypoint and a 'GATTACK' waypoint (ground attack) they will open the bomb bay doors on aircraft equipped with that.

For humans the bomb bay doors open automatically when the drop bomb command is pressed.

the AI will open the BB doors if their next waypoint is a ground attack waypoint. Even if it is many miles away.

There is no delay to wait for the doors to open when a human drops bombs. It is instant.
