Having seen some recent KOTS terrain, here's a short flying video.

(note the in-cockpit pilot animation and imagine the possibilities)

Oh that is sweet.

The pilot gestures at the beginning and the shadows being cast from one plane on another were the highlights for me.

Being able to see the blip smoke should prove interesting in assessing one's combatant's actions and intentions.

Is that multiplayer? (*****k comes from 'network delay' ?); if not, some of the planes are AI flown?

Looks great!

I'm guessing it's an AI follow-the-leader test. In a couple shots the DR1 in the forefront has that AI tell-tale wobble on the tail of the aircraft (unless it's slipstream ;\) ).

If it is AI then they have Neoqb have done a real nice job making the flight formation look loose and realistic. No AI on rails flying which bothered me about other sims.

I don't know if I was happier without these updates.
Ignorance is bliss and all that.
Now I'm in a state, tongue hanging out and dying to get me hands on KotS
...at any cost.

I'd say that the clip is player plus 2 AI. With the AI taking off as a pair (maybe started by the player and that gesture ). I have to agree the AI behaviour was very realistic looking. No rails there.

All 3x of them are AI controlled planes, one leader and 2x followers in V formation. \:\)

Beautiful fidgety movements of the planes, and the smoke trail is sweet as well!

Ah, all AI? - Well, it is great to see how realistically they move, being pushed about by air currents etc.

Regarding the forests, I have the feeling that they look a teeny bit too dark, and maybe also too uniform, with no roads or fire belts going through them. After all, France/Belgium at the time was pretty much covered in "culturally influenced" landscapes, not New Guinea-like jungle. I can very definitely be wrong in my impression, it is just a feeling.

The thing is that video is shoot around Verdun-Toul-Nancy area - there is the most forests covered area of western front.

pilot animation

Nice thanks VikS. We saw some hints a while back (youtube) that the team was working on bones/motion capture. I thought for ground troops though... this looks very interesting

Will the enemy pilot alongside point to the ground if he shows mercy and has captured you in the air above his lines? Wingie asked me this last night in conversation so I pass on the question

The lavender sky is a placeholder for sky-blue I hope. Shades of Microsoft. Picky but we're up there most of the time

Oi does the phrase Knights of the Sky mean anything to you VikS

Bounders of the Sky?

Hasn't got the same ring to it

See knights means chivalry. Or we sue you under the Trade Descriptions Act

Can you drop your gear to signal surrender then?

Yes I know Brigs see 'plan' note earlier. It's about engaging the enemy so he reveals more than he might otherwise, but don't mention this to VikS

SWEEEEEEEEET!!!!

Awesome that you are incorporating the hand signals and such... small detail but absolutely crucial for WW1 air combat sim!

THANK YOU for the update, glad to see that the [NEOqB] team is on track, can't wait to get my paws on this.


looks very modernishy-phoney-windows eighty-tabletty like

Glad this is still worked on. I have OFF Phase 2 to help me over but look forward to this even more than BoB:SOW.
