Thanks for your reply Pat.
"I have rainy days in the campaign, but they are rare. I got a bad weather/overcast/low ceiling mission just a couple of days ago in testing. They certainly flew in less than ideal conditions, but there were limits. If it was really coming down or they were completely socked in, they didn't fly. Not much to be done in a WWI crate in pouring rain with limited visibility other than kill yourself. Recon, Arty spot, bomb, balloon - can't see so why fly? No targets in the air no need for scouts.
I also don't like the way RoF (or any combat flight sim that I have ever played) plays out in bad weather. Get into a cloud - zero visibility - but the AI sees just fine. Mostly I prefer to model bad weather days as non-flying days."
I agree with you about bad weather = don't fly.
But of course, there is bad weather and bad weather!
Real bad weather = don't fly, but some bad weather can be flyed! (Some English WW1 pilots were known for flying in bad weather imo)
On side note, AIs aren't seeing through clouds anymore. Made many tests when chased by AI ennemy.
2 seaters can easily and safely hide in overcast to avoid any bad encounters.
Once was chased by 3 opponents, i quickly climbed 100m to hide in overcast, i could hear them but they didn't fired me nor followed, and i lost them pretty fast...
But i agree under overcast, in rain with poor visi (for player), AI are still seeing very very well!
Anyway, it's up to you to decide for bad weather!
I still believe few bad weathers days flying can be immersive with our beautiful ROF rain drop on googles, but maybe not that much as B career...
