View Full Version : Oleg, any updates on when the F4F & F6F Canopy glass will be fixed?

Doesn't look so bad flying level, but dive on a BnZ target and the glare renders the canopy/gunsight all but useless. Are we going to see a fix for this in the next patch or so?

I'm sure lots of folks will agree on this.

It's not a bug, It's a feature.

Don't you think glass won't reflect any sunlight?

Platypus, I guess your right about that. But I would like to see that Green stuff removed.
If theirs one thing the pilots make sure to keep clean, its the windshield.

So hop in an La7 and tell me where the glass reflection is? Looks factory-pristine to me. Perhaps U.S. production quality and standards were far below that of the Soviet Union?

I can't imagine that this gimmicky hinderance would be allowed on P51s, 109s, Yaks, etc.

I've always felt that imperfections and glare should have been something 1C did not leave to the discretion of the modeller. This is something that should have been tightly controlled by 1C to maintain 'fairness'. Alot of planes have crystal clear non reflective glass La, F4U, Zero, FW190. Others have glass that is so dirty its almost useless Bf109, F4F, F6F, yaddayaddayadda.

I don't even know where these modellers think that cockpit glass would be this dirty? It was probably the only thing that was miticulously cleaned on the aircraft. If the ground crew didn't do it the pilot would sure as hell do it himself.

It's so bad that I rarely fly the airplane - even though I'd like to, it's just not worth it with the slime-glass. It's not very realistic, either.

Sorry for duplicating your thread. I honestly scanned right over it without noticing.

problem is its completely filthy, remember when the 109s had it and was cleaned.

The ki43, val and a couple others have this as well, the opacity of the filth needs to be removed.

Ahem,the urine on the Me109G6(late I think) is still there.

Hmmm, the only place that I was going is that the F6F glass is probably the worst in the sim on the slime factor scale.

Which is the "right way" to get the F6F fixed? Should I find US documents that state that F6F ground crews were in fact issued with rags and soap?

As an amendment, the F4F seems to have improved a bit, or maybe not. Can anyone confirm that? Maybe it was just the shock of seeing the F6F glass again after months away from it.

Reflect a little sunlight, yes.

Look like somebody hocked up big green loogeys all over the inside of the cockpit, NO.

Apparently, whoever modeled the 'pit hasn't ever seen the footage of crewchiefs polishing the cockpits

So this 109 "urine" completely obscures gunnery passes in a dive? And tell me how this has anything to do with a thread about the F6F.

good question why oleg didnt take that in his own hands because there is this standart which 1C has for modelling planes its a bit wierd to see it on some planes and not on others

and i agree the F6F needs cleaning along with others, keep it the same for every plane which is no dirt but only sun glare

tolwyn.com knew exactly why it appears the way it does.

But you might want to search for it.

I would like to see dirt on all the glass. Corsair was famous for oil splatter (see most F4us had duct tape on upper engine canopy.)Snow and rain and mud on russian glass and beer spatter on LW planes! more puke and piss and blood on the inside too!!!

tolwyn, is there some reason that you are being so mysterious in your posts on this subject? This is the second time you've referred to the search engine on this forum regarding this subject. If you know something about the F6F canopy problem, why not just spit it out?

Really, don't attack other planes, try to support what you say with some data, only by that way 1c will do something about it.
