i just wonder as the game has some of best damage modeling ive seen in a ww2 sim (not that i really have the slightest idea what it was really like) but my canopy never gets damaged??

or have i just been amazingly lucky and they do fill with bullet holes??

ps. id also like to see blood splatters on the glass (inside) im sure ive seen that in another sim, it shocked me the 1st time it happened http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

blood splatter only works on a few planes, teh HE 11 and one of the BF's...to turn it on go to conf file and find HIGHGORE and set the 0 to a 1.....HighGore=1

Hmmm, if you're flying with pit on, the you will see all kinds of canopy damage in planes, ranging from bullet holes to destroyed gun sights to oil splattering...etc.

Due to 3D modeling limitations however, you don't always see the damage from an external view, that you are seeing from the internal view.

The blood effect is limited to certain planes as posted above and the main reason for that was to keep it out of a MATURE rating by the ESRB. Or at least, that's what I've read over the years.

Look in your conf.ini file. It's the 2nd line under the [GAME] section.

This section is also where the line for new clouds gets added and the line for 3D Gunners. Just FYI.

TypeClouds=0 or 1

You`ll certainly see the busted gunsight and cockpit glass sooner or later in an LA5. Best to avoid of course!

Nice to see you`re sticking with the pit view. Track IR will certainly enhance your experience once you get it!

Busted glass, plenty of times!! Bustesd gunsight in the early 109's as well. Bloody hard to hit anything without your gunsight, although i have finished one off before now, had to get relly close first though. Your instruments sometimes get shot as well, which is unhelpfull! Sometimes to simulate you getting wounded, everything becomes slightly redish. The more red, the heavier your wound. I think your control effectivness/speed decrease as you become more wounded as well.
Your more likely to see these effects earlier in the war, when people arn't lobbing around 20mm shells at each other. 303's always get me, love flying an emil v 4 acr hurris

Didn't they turn off the High Gore function with blood for good some patches ago?I think they did.

I belive the High Gore function was a test in early il-2 but they abandoned it.
I didn't need the blood but the pilot also sunk forward in his seat and that would have been ok to indicate the death of a pilot, and/or hit in cockpit.

Having the pilot slumped over if hit would be ok, after all, this is what happens to bomber gunners when they are knocked out. I don't think blood spatter would add much to the sim. There's a whole list of other things which could enhance the sim other than blood spatter.

Good Hunting,

Yes, that's right, it only worked in original IL-2 Sturmovik and as said only in a very few AC.

Do you REALLY want a Track IR 4?

I think it's the cat's meow, and recommend it to everyone.

Go to gogamer.com and buy it. When you check out put the special code SIMHQ30. This will give you a $30.00 discout off the normal $179.00. (It's in association with Sim HQ.)

With shipping it should come to about $155.00
You must be a US resident though.

Hunter (a forum member) has an online store as well Magnum...something....(dammit, sorry Hunter I can't remember the full name.)

Find one of his posts. He's a regular, and on the bottom of one of his posts you'll see a link.

(Unless someone else who responds knows Magnum's full web adress)

Well, better engine sounds, and 6dof would enhance the sim, but we're getting those in BoB (the sound, I pray). But the blood is important. It's a far better visual cue than a slumped pilot (how much can you see in a 600km+ headon?) and it's realistic. If people are uncomfortable with an accurate war simulation, perhaps they should be playing MS Flight sim. The new one looks very pretty.

I'd kick in a few extra dollars for a gore patch on credit card.
