What do I want from a 'Battle of Britain' engine? I'll bleedin' well tell you.

I want proper English gardens with rose trellises festooning the pathways, cropped-haired street urchins with long shorts and tank tops. Stirling British fighter pilots with their top buttons undone in sporty little cars with golf clubs on the back seat. I want wide eyed and terrified German aircrews screaming "Achtung Spitfuer!" "Donner und blitzen!" "All iss lossst!" and "Mutti!" through my headphones. The occaisional American interloper in long trousered tennis whites who's come over to save the day and those hilarious misunderstandings when a Polish or Czech pilot has bailed out into the middle of a group of rustic English farmhands in their flat caps and very high waisted trousers (belt and braces if you please).

I want cheery cockneys huddled round the piano in an authentic pub (note: proper, heavy slab-sided pint pots not those crappy modern ones), straw hatted and stripey aproned butchers who tell you (regional accent preferred) that 'there's a war on, you know' and can only let you have one sausage. I want windows criss-crossed with white anti-blast tape and sandbags around the bottom of lamposts (those cream and green metal ones, mind you with the inverted tulip shape around the light - not those modern concrete eyesores with the orange glow). No motorways, out of town superstores, all seater football stadia or concrete roundabouts with badly concieved flower beds adorning them. I want a proper landed gentry type who takes control of the local Home Guard, harking back to the days of knights leading bands of stout yeomen; shifty-eyed working class types muttering stuff like "Wait till this lot is over, your type have had it then, mate." (Yet a grudging respect maintained while hostilities continue).

Black and white striped kerbstones. Factory girls in headscarves and matt red lipstick, legs stained with gravy browning and crooked mascarra seam lines to emulate unavailable stockings (no, repeat no tights - that's pantyhose to our American friends). Richard Attenborough and John Mills type sailors on leave, threading their way from pub to pub, to be served by a young Sid James type only too happy to let the lads "'Ave it on the slate" (And a proper slate, mind you - like a little blackboard on the corner of the bar with nicknames - not proper ones - like 'Smudger' 'Chalky' 'Lofty' and so on).

Proper haystacks - either a bloody great dome shaped pile of straw or a neat block made up of individual bales - none of this rolled up carpet effect we have nowadays. Perhaps at dusk some courting couple - say a Land Army girl (proper breeches, wide at the top, narrow at the bottom please) and the local ack-ack emplacement sergeant (proper forage cap - or 'chip bag hat' and half-smoked cigarette behind one ear) could enter these haystacks to emerge later in an authentically dishevelled state.
Which reminds me - chip shops that wrap their wares in newspaper - no polystyrene boxes or carrier bags please.

Policemen in 'tin hats', not the ubiquitous London bobby 'tit' helmet. ARP wardens shouting "Put that light out!". I want Gaudy London prozzies hanging around dockyard gates and other sundry military installations with a cheery (that word again) "Wanna good time luv?" (Check it out- they got around). Oh, and those white enamel tin mugs with the blue border around the rim - matching soup bowls would be nice. And some spivs "Pssst! Wanna buy some petrol coupons, guv?"

Oh, and a Westland Whirlwind.

...and cute girlie clippies in black uniforms at the (open) back door of the bus saying "Plenty of room on top!"

An old bloke in a tin hat, tweed jacket and those milk-bottle-bottom round spectacles, cardboard gas mask box slung over his chest on a piece of string (a half-eaten cheese sandwich semi-wrapped in greaseproof paper to hand) winding the handle on that siren (thanks Major http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif )

Nice detail. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Maybe I should ask this: What does the "game engine" do, exactly?

I thought the GE was about motion characteristics and damage models. I'm starting to get the feeling I'm off on this one.

We should expect that no matter how good it is someone is going to find something to complain about and fill these boards with all kinds of charts and specs ad nauseum. Thats the only thing I am certain about.

No one mentions the "thx Oleg" threads and posts. I think they outweigh the complaints. Whiners just are simply louder, but they're not the majority.
