Just have a idea of changing the men that ride trucks,motorcycle and so on.(they are very ugly now).Maybe to include some troops on the ground.And include the original uniform(Wehrmacht,Red Army and other countrys).

slightly OT...do you remember infantry running away from trucks when you strafe them...haven't seen that in a while. Is that feature still present?

If I remember right they still are with...

it was one strafe which I made and I saw them running out their vehicles - it was Crimea or Stalingrad campaign.

instead of the guys running from the trucks,there aren't any infantry.And one question: Why when I fly with Luftwaffe I can't see any trucks,tanks from my side?
And one thing more:Why behind the AA guns don't have any soldiers.
My idea is change the guys in the trucks,motorcycles,to appear men after AA guns and maybe some infantry.

I know what you mean - it's little bit of strange ( X-files ) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif when you watch those 88 guns and there is no men behind...

I have wrote my game conf.ini line, something "3dgunners=1" without those quotes http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I'm now work, so I can't check what is right line to wrote but this laid mens behind guns.

Not everywhere but still http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Yes but only for guns added with PF, e.g. the Japanese ones, the Bofors, etc .

Old guns as the German Flak 88 still have no gunners (and will never have probably)

Yes - you right but I said that not everywhere but still http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Anyhow, I remember one mission ( IL2 campaign ) where I see a truck with light AA and there sit men behind that gun http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
If I remember right it is possible one mission in Smolensk map...

The men are not hrere for several reasons.

1) The frame rate hit is pretty high on some low-end computers. The game developer decided to leave them out. When Pacific Fighters was released, an option was created to allow gun crews to be enabled on ships and a few AAA guns (I don't know which guns). Read your PF manual for how to turn this on.

2) As this is a flight sim, gun crews are almost impossible to see until you are practically on top of the gun. As stated in 1) above, the frame hit isn't worth the loss in realism for a fraction of a second view of a gun crew when you dive on the gun.

3) This game is meant to be air to air or air to ground target. Strafing infantry leaves a bad taste in some people's mouth, so it was decided to leave out most people on the ground and use the developer's time to create more flyable planes. There are a lot of FPS out there, so you can play one of them if you want to shoot people.

The men run out from the German vehicle convoys when you strafe; I don't think the same feature is available with any other army.

There were some human gunners in IL-2 and FB; I'm thinking of a Russian truck with an AA gun on the back. I have the original Sturmovik on my HD so I'll check for other examples.

The Flak 88s and other AA guns are ubiquitous and typically at every target area in 'mudmoving' missions so it would be nice to have crews on them.

As I sayd it was just a fool idea maybe.From that I read from you I think this add-on will be useless.I just give the idea and invite someone if he/she want to work on it,becouse I haven't got Photoshop or other program to work on the idea.

It´s not a fool idea. I have often wondered why we don´t have better ground detail, such as trees and buildings. But I guess they were sacrificed for low-end pc´s. On my old pc, which was extreme low end, tropical maps were impossible due to the palm trees.

I would like to see an improvement with ground detail though. Something you can turn on or off(like water settings) so that it won´t kill 75% of the gamers´rigs.
