View Full Version : Odd objects in clouds?

11-08-2004, 02:34 PM
When flying through clouds I always see little objects that look like falling debris. Anyone else see these or do I need to change my meds?

11-08-2004, 02:52 PM
I have seen this since PF. . . dunno what it is but many have reported seeing it.

lol i was seeing the same i guess http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif
they look like little black dots floating in the clouds ,the first time i saw them i thought it was a plane dot in the clouds but then again i cant see through clouds.

Ditto - I just figured it was bits of my plane being blasted away by the bad guys....

I think its something to do with the prop, maybe the glitch is there, I noticed that they always seem to be only in the radius of the prop, not outside it. Also I have encountered it once outside cloud in a really laggy online game.

Ask anyone who plays online, and they will point out that UFOs have been in the Il2 series since day one http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I'll ditto this, I've seen them with my own eyes!

Saw those small black dots the other night...only when you fly thru a cloud though.

I understand that pilots who record such things in their official flight reports often mysteriously disappear overnight or are suddenly reassigned to desk jobs in the middle of nowhere.

Be careful what you write in your logs!

It's a known bug,it's the center of the cloud. It has nothing to do with the prop.

11-08-2004, 04:31 PM
I had it, I thought it was some weird flak or something, but its obviously not.

Nice guess, but come on, show a little bit more fantasy!!

PS: First time I thought its AAA, but since no ship was around, that definitely was not AAA .. I really wonder ...

I thought it was just me - sometimes when I look at the clouds I see rabbits, or dragons, or castles http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It's just bugs that got in yur cockpit before you took off. try opening the canopy and shewing them out.

Nice effect, I think. LOL http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Wow! I thoght it was just me! I made a report to HQ, but they mysteriously lost it and have now ordered me to say nothing more on the subject! Let`s hope they don`t see this post! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I first saw this in the PF Beta and I actually got quite excited. You see I thought that it may be the start of a fix for AI seeing through clouds.
But they're still there and the AI can still see through clouds... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

11-10-2004, 06:36 AM
That thought occured to me too... Let`s hope they haven`t given up!

I've been lurking in these forums for quite a while... so it's about time I joined in... and I'll do it with a couple of pics of those pesky foo-fighters.



Taking some better pics is probably not a problem (anyone else?)... but I am curious if someone can confirm that this is actually a graphic bug and that it's a marker or anchor at the center of the cloud... or is the truth still out there? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

After speaking personally to the Grand Vizar of the Uthos Galactic Alliance, (I was on his mothership just yesterday), he says that these are "Vision-Bots" his race has placed in the atmosphere to observe our actions. He darkly hinted that so far they are not amused and the High Councils of Prophets are considering using Earthlings as a dietary aid.
Be warned, the end is near!
