View Full Version : My screenshots of Wing over Waves demo featuring the detailed airbase.

For those of you unable to test the Wings over Waves demo; here are some screenshots from the demo.
The airbase featured in the demo is highly detailed. This doesn't seem to affect playability very much though!! (See the comments by PlusWave on the Rebirth of Honour thread elsewhere on this forum).

These screenshots are from the 3rd and 2nd missions (I think) in the demo Zero campaign. In the 2nd mission 24 bombers (B24s) attack the airbase, eight fighters (I think?) intercept the attack. Despite this I found the mission easily playable without any stuters at all. This mission has some degree of clouds too!

In fact a later mission with less detail caused far more impact on frame-rates (sorry, no specific info): and there the only objects around me during combat were an aircraft carrier (maybe a ship or two) and several other fighters (and Vals) over an empty ocean!!!

As I stated: missions are playable even in combat over this base!

My computer specs:

Intel P4 3.06 GHz.
512MB Ram
GeForce4 Ti4600

My in-game settings for the above mentioned playability:

Visibility Distance: Low
Object lighting: High
Object Detail: Normal
Object Lighting: Excellent
Landscape Detail: Medium
Cloud detail: Medium Clouds

1024 x768 screen resolution.
Anti Aliasing off (in graphic card settings).
Anisotropic filtering off (in graphic card settings).
Picture Quality :High Performance (in graphics card settings).

(These detail settings were later changed in track playback in order to take more detailed screenshots).









Nose art (demo default) is different for every bomber!

How do you know where to put thingss? I.e. what an airfield looks like. Do you have photos for reference?

Baldie Jnr is dead right

whoever made that base did a great job of it , it really looks the part . i know theres hours of work right there

ive played some coops with certian players of this game who were fantastic base makers , such detail is not put together fast , be sure!

Looks fantastic. Properly populated airbases is one of the things that I've always missed in this game. Those shots shows how to do it properly.

I wish bases like this were available for download. No missions. Just a nice base that could be loaded on the full mission editor to fly some touch and goes.

Thanks for sharing the screens.

Yeah... excellent looking shots. It looks like PlusWave is making really good job there. + their skins looks very very nice.

Well done. Does look very nice but a little overdone. It makes the island look like Newport News with the massive dry docks/facilities which were not part of the island actual island.

In catch 22 you would get a medal for that bombing, a perfect pattern out at sea http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
