Is it just me, or does the ground details on this look better than 'Red Orchestra'?

That's...pretty cool.

Not sure how useful it is, but...it's definitely pretty cool. I wouldn't mind hopping in a WW2-era vehicle and driving around a few hundred miles of realistically (period) roads and buildings and such every now and then when I don't feel like hauling out all my flight gear...

Ok the news about the FMs is a good start but the rest is again the same old stuff.
The drivable vehicles??? jeez you couldn't make it up.

Like I said in the IC forum.

"I haven't read all of the thread, but this could be very good for all of us. Someone should post this video in the tank sim forums, if it hasn't been already. This could have many of the the tankers investing in the sim now.

I realize the angst some have of these features watering down a combat flight sim, but I doubt over the long haul this will be the case. The new series is primarily a combat flight sim made by combat flight sim enthusiasts, these features will only draw in money from other genres, that will help finance the sim over a very long haul. The added monies will allow for new features primarily aircombat in nature, and even ships that are sorely needed. The longer this sim stays in development the closer we are to the SDK."

Like someone said in the IC forums and here, the ground portion of the sim will be mostly arcade while the aircombat primarily simulation. It will make for a much more immersive world viewed from the seat of an aircraft.

I enjoyed the original Red Orchestra, primarily the tank battles. This could draw more than a few from that genre, considering the size of the map, the constantly improving terrain, and the full mission builder, could make for some very interesting missions for tankers.

Using the AAA gun will be just one option. I could see them being used quite a bit on an objective based server. We have some pretty nasty flak around objectives. I couldn't imagine how bad it would be with humans controlling them. As far as the other vehicles the possibilities are endless. You could take over an airfield, deliver supplies, have obviously another tank/armor battle with the other team. Heck, you can resupply airfields with munitions/ammo/fuel etc., in the old IL2 right now. Just imagine doing it in an all human convoy of tanks, trucks, trailers, motorcycles (lol), because if you don't make it, that airfield runs out of fuel for the planes, bombs for the bombers, or repair parts.

I think this is the most phenomenal, most immersive news for any flight sim I've ever seen. This is going to be the very foundation for the greatest combat sim of all time.

Personally I won't be flying at 10,000ft much. I will be winning the war ground pounding, while your hiding above the clouds, padding some insignificat air stat. wink Although there nothing like shooting down a Spit for something to do on the way home from a successfull ground attack mission.

Until I can ride a horse, I won't consider it a fully-fledged WWII flight simulator.

Nice to see a Friday update, and keen to see a patch as per usual.
