This guy jumped at my plane because I'd had a go at him and as he passes he lets out one good ripper and my wings off and down I go...

This is surely over modelled!...

Are you sure you didn't hit his landing gear? Storch seems to have some very sturdily modelled gear

No the guy actually went through my wing when he bailed which wasn't very funny but when I played the track back and saw it like this I thought it was funny....(in a farting kind of way)

never mind...

I'm away back to flying...

No, this is normal (in FB, not in real life), Parachutists are considered solid objects and colliding with them bring fatal damage to your plane...

By the way, i never collided with a human, but once i collided at night with a young deer crossing the road in front of my car. This deer was weighing about 50kg, and i was travelling at 60kph... the amount of damage to the car was incredible, and the car needed extensive repairs after that...

Now imagine what damage a plane travelling at 300kph could sustain from a 80kg body...

yeah my dad had his car written off - hit a deer at 60mph (ran out in front of him, travelling through a forest) made a hell of a mess - dad was ok but the car wasn't and neither was the poor deer... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif had to get the forest ranger out with his gun .....

my mum was hit in that same forest about a year later - a glancing blow, had to get the passenger door repaired - days before we were due to trade the car in for a new one! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

not a nice experience....

S!

And imagine what damage a 80kg free-falling body could sustain from a 10 ton plane travelling at 300kph...

The damage in the plane is logical, it's the lack of damage nor physics in the body what amazes me -it goes on in its straight path to ground and isn't even moved by collision!

Get a Hurricane weighing ten tonne to do 300kph , and the boffins at RR would like to speak to you I would think http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Well, nice to see your interested in a flying body simulation...

For us interested in a plane simulation, the ressources of the computer are better uesd to compute what happen to the plane than to the bodies.

Thus i can understand that a parachutist have only two states, falling harmlessly to the ground with an intact parachute, or falling into the ground with a destroyed parachute.

And this way, we don't have to debate over the DM model of the body, the FM of the body, its rolling rate, and how "insert your favorite nationality" body should do more damage at the moment of collision because of mysterious reasons that have been studied by unknown people in a long forgotten crappy book.

Curious you haven't complained yet about the fact that parachutists are all modelled the same while we had many different models of parachutes. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Hey listen it's not a big deal really ...I just thought it was funny that the AI guy might have farted my wing off...don't worry about it please... it was supposed to be funny...(it made me laugh when I saw it that's all)...

Cheers for now.

No problem numpty, i was ROFL the first time i lost a wing for hitting the chute, not even the pilot...

I think it happened to almost all of us. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I want parachutists as loadouts for my p51 and p38. If someone sneaks from low 6 I can drop the para as a sort of airmine =o)

It's lucky 1 of my squadron buddies doesn't visit these boards (name withheld to protect the embarrased), he got shotdown by a reargunner of a Storch in our BoF campaign. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
