For your viewing pleasure - a couple of pics from work ongoing on WOFF. Some balloon attack improvements, AI changes, rocket effects changes and more.

[Linked Image]


Here you can see individual rockets hitting the ballon and exploding, different to the current rocket interaction.

Looks great Pol. Happy to see the work continues. Are there any plans to have the balloons winch down. Have the crew jump out on parachutes before getting fried?
Can you give us a hint on what new aeroplanes you guys are working on? Thanks for continued support!

We are working on various things to improve, bringing some things from WOTR to WOFF etc. No plans to add more to the balloons themselves. The other info will come later.

Pol, just wondering if you have any control over the flight path of the Prieurs. Would it be possible to once in a while have one of them fly off into a more drastically random (forward-facing) direction? Or a dud, that would not fire at all and stay on the strut attachment for the rest of the mission?

Rockets veer off already to some extent.

[Linked Image]


I doubt we will be doing more to them
In that attack pictured, you can see, of the 4 left side rockets 3 are sort of merging and 1 has gone somewhere else.. only 3 or 4 hit the target . The previous attack was much worse with them all over the shop.
Yeah maybe would could make some dud and then they explode on the way back mwahaha.. just lots of things we can do and so little time.

Pol, don’t get me wrong. The rocket flight path is already perfect and random enough to make them the inaccurate weapon that they were. I’m just thinking of that one rogue one that would fly totally into the “left field” as it were. Rare occurence to an already random event.
Understood about the little time issue. Cheers.

Pol, may I ask if the AI changes are purely related to balloon attacks or AI changes in general?

Hellshade, in this post they are related to the balloon attacks, but we are looking at other areas.

I am extremely happy to hear that work is still continuing on WOFF. Thank you, Pol and everyone else for your long-lasting dedication to this project.

One tiny suggestion, if it is at all possible: tweaking the AI in order to improve its decision to come to the aide of a friendly aircraft and engage the enemy (the same could be said for "A" flight and those pulling escort duty). They seem to be just a bit too timid, I feel. "Death before dishonor" and all that, right?

Not taking anything away from what you, Rex, and WindingMan have already been able to achieve with the AI currently in WOFF. It is still the best in any flight simulator out there!

Bob, do you really want the AI to steal ALL your kills? winkngrin

Hah! Actually, poaching of your kill by one of your flight-mates is a slightly different problem. My flight-mates are not timid at all! ar15

Instead, I'm mainly talking about friendly aircraft who are not part of your squadron or flight. They all seem to be conscientious-objectors! cat
