View Full Version : A little suggestion about bailing

I don't think this should be difficult to implement and I appologize if someone else already mentioned it.

So, first thing is to make player a little tougher. Sure, falling to the ground too fast is bad, but when you open the parachute and drift for 15 seconds, I think thats slow enough to survive. Make the player break a leg or something, so to make him wounded and skip a campaign in singleplayer, but don't make him dead, please! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Second is something a bit different, but I think it to be very important. When I press ctrl+e, everything is finished. Bailing is inevitable, if possible of course. I would like there to be a button to make me cancel the bailing out. It happened to me a few times that I was hit in a wing at a low altitude and the plane suddenly sunk on that side and it seemed that I lost a wing. So I pressed ctrl+e desperatly trying to save myself, thinkig how low I am, but than realized that the wing is still there. Or what just happened to me in vwf. My ailerons were disabled at very low alt, I immediatly pushed ctrl+e as I thought there is no way to roll back to neutral. Than it occured to me i still had rudder. I rolled back and pulled back to gain altitude, but the pilot bailed too early an I died. Now, I know that it's my mistake, but still, I realized the mistake before bailing so in reality I could still make it right.

Think about it please. It really seems easy to do.

Wow! Awsum Whines.

About changing mind when Bailing...

Story that sticks in my mind and I can't get rid of it. A B~17 bailout was observed from another B~17. Some crewmembers bailed out, and one man in particular was observed crawling out on wing, hanging on tight but he had no parachute--forgotten in the Panic to get out. The guy started reaching for the doorway or something, trying to make his way back inside. Just then the airflow snatched him off the wing, parachute remembered too late.

If I could quote the original it would stick in ya'lls mind too, forever.

Luthor, I was still in cockpit as I had perfect control over what controls I had left. There was no ejection seat, so it would look something like: I have to bail! (thinking of opening the cockipt, and than realize that I can still gain altitude) No, I'll bail after I climb a bit. I was not on the wing, but still seated inside so I should be able to change my mind.

OK, I'll post the original message there.

*bump*

If it was not clear, then I state now that I agree with your Bail idea.

Would be interesting to have a Strap On Parachute key, and many simmers would "forget" this, from time to time, kinda like the story above.
