View Full Version : Question abbout PF/FB/ACE combo

10-07-2004, 07:35 AM
I posted this in the il2 gen forum but thought i might better post it here.. so...

Since it's possible to install PF over FB/ACE; does that mean we will also get the new muzzle flashes and other visual goodies in FB/ACE as well?

I'd really like seeing my target from now on when i fire with the FW or 109/mk108 :|

Bump, good question. Will all the features in PF, like the muzzle flash, open canopy, and water effects be included if we install over FB/AEP? That would be incredible if it did.

Probably not the canopy...thats extra model detail.

No idea about muzzles. That may be a universal value...OR...specific to each. It'd be nice if they went through and redid it if necessary.

The open canopy - no.
Muzzleflash - my guess - yes.
Water effects - my guess - yes.

sorry mates could you explain me what is

canopy and Muzzleflash ? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

issues are simply
canopy = will old fb planes eg 109, have the ability to get the "raised seat" or "open canopy view" used for carrier landing?

muzzleflash= will the blinding flashes of yellow haze from the big guns like the mk108 be scaled down along with the new pf muzzle effects, or remain same

Although I'm also not 100% sure, my basic understanding of the technics behind FB/AEP/PF tells me that PF will do the following when installed over FB/AEP:

- add the totally new contents
- replace old content with the current stuff
For example: the water has been improved in
PF - when installed into FP/AEP, the water
will look like the current water in PF when
we play. Logic therefor dictates that same
will most likely go for teh flashes.

Think about it... and relax a little, ok? You will see soon.

A general request, gentlemen: stop bugging the devs - just because PF has gone gold doesn't mean they no longer have any work left. On the contrary, we already heard the are still working hard to get the first patch up and running (so along with maybe a few bugfixes, we will get a heap of cockpits and planes).

So please, think twice before you make a post like "Oleg tell me this" or "luthier tell me that".
Safe your energy for PF, you'll need it. And if you have a request/complaint, just hop on to the big $hitload of threads that will pop up around here after PF has hit the shelves and dozens of threads open with heaps of requests and complaints. Be sure.
