Default Friday 2009-11-13 Screenshots AND Discussion Thread

Hello everyone,

Oleg is taking a much-needed vacation until next week. I'll do a short update for him this time. We'll focus on some of the lesser known planes that we model for Battle of Britain. All screenshots are from development tools. We're not going to do in-engine shots until Oleg is back.

Note: some features in the tools are approximations. There are no waves, wakes, simplified terrain, etc. This update is just to showcase our beautiful aircraft.

First off, here's the Fiat G.50 Freccia, which, as most of you should know by now, took part in the later part of the battle. It will be flyable:

And here's the Heinkel He 115B-2 floatplane. This plane is very rarely modeled in simulations, and never as accurately as ours. We used original manufacturing blueprints to build this model, so it's incredibly precise. This plane will be AI-only in the initial release.

Thanks for sharing!

The Heinkel looks nice - the interior details are fantastic! I hope somebody will make a cockpit for this plane.

Ilya would you have enough accurate references to build a He 115 interior/cockpit model from later? That plane is looking phantastic!

Thx a bunch, Ilya. You realize that you just put more emblems on my plate? Namely those of the Küstenfliegergruppen ...

Regarding the weathering effects we can see at those beauties, are they the final and "worst" state of weathering ?

How can we imagine the process of wastage of the entrence area of the cockpit on the upper side of wings? I suppose those effects won't process by flight time such as the wing edges or propeller blades f.e.

A more specific question regarding the damage model I have. Perhaps not directly related to this friday update.
As we know, planes consist of different types of materials. With different characteristics (physically). Are such characteristic values in any kind considered in the damage calculation?
E.g. the heat resistance or strength durability due to forces which occur ?
This could be fire of the engine which heats metal or fabric materials till the load limit is reached and the part fails to work or certain areas get damaged.Or simple collisions on the ground with objects or runway bumps, something like that...

(I know that perhaps gets a bit into detail, but due to my studies I'm interested in those details. Me-262 fans would be a nice topic, but hey BoB is not Schwalbentime )

I know the italian fans will flame me but... Why make the G-50 flyable if the Defiant is not? Why make the BR-20 flyable when the Do-17 is not?

In my world the Do-17 in particular was an important plane during the Battle, and the Defiant is sure a plane that is often discussed even though it was a failure... The italians where really of minor significance (but interesting for sure!).

The best would be to have them all but if we can't have them all... As the Italian cockpits are already done I'm crying for nothing I guess - but the Do-17 is really one of my personal "bad guy" favorites...

I was wondering more or less the same. Despite the Italian birds being far superior to the other in terms of technical ingenuity and sheer aeroplanautical beauty, they saw little use in the BoB indeed, as they were 5 or 6 years older than the more recent British types; one can then be led to attribute their presence in game to the need of planes that the Hurris could bag more easily than the German types...
No more seriously, my guess is that the three Italian machines could be used to build quickly other nice theaters with little effort, such as Greece, or North Africa 1940.

Just guessing.

Regards,
Insuber
