On the Fokkers it looks like models are selfshading.
That would be a very good thing \:\)

Will skins be userpaintable??? \:D

They are okay, but I dislike black tyres on ww1 aircraft. From looking through my Windsock collection most tyres seem to be quite light in colour, ie. light grey/tan rubber ...

But that's a minor nitpick of course.

when i was a very small boy i had the privelege to talk to the father of a fellah that owned a model shop.He was actually old enough to remember the planes of ww1 and i always remember him telling me that almost without exception the tyres of that era ,be they from a car or plane were grey.

Did anybody notice that on that start-up screen there is no button for multiplayer? That worries me more than a little bit.

I love these screenshots! Thanks a lot for digging them up Dantes!

Things I especially like:

- The German artilleryman/groundcrewman/whatever with his little forage cap.

- The pilots in their big overalls running towards their aircraft on the title screen.

- The medal ceremony screen which just has a great period feel.

All of this smells like IMMERSION to me. Lately flight sims seem to have become more sterile in this department, usually only showing hangars and medals with not a human in sight. I definitely think Aspect Sims are on the right track here. BTW did you notice the propeller hanging on the mess wall?

I'll leave the counting of aircraft cylinders to the experts. \:\)

Yea, I don't know what is up with the multiplayer option. Hard to imagine the game shipping without multiplayer though... Maybe there just isn't time to include it.

Thank-you Icer. Those screenshots look pretty, but WHERE IS THE MULTIPLAYER BUTTON??????

MY R.B. squad, the J37 Black Wolves have placed all of our hopes of a future on a multiplayer game in K.O.E.. Old J37 members who have left in favor of other interests have become active again in anticipation of K.O.E. multiplay action. We were the first R.B. squad to to announce our intention of moving to K.O.E. when it happens.

I used to worry about what form K.O.E. multiplayer would take. I thought the question of "Can you take off from the ground and can you land on the ground?" was pretty basic. Now it looks like it might have been presumptuous..

My BIG question to Aspect now is, " Will there be multi-player at all?"

If there is to be no multiplayer mode, I see financial disaster for the Aspect team who have put so much fine work into this sim.

A large portion of the combat sim community like the single play stuff, but find it no match for mano a mano multiplay against real live thinking humans. AI keeps getting better, but it is no match for millions of years of evolution that went into the human brain.

Aspect Sim Team. Please, please tell me there will be multiplayer in this sim!!!!!!!!

No worries guys! I think maybe that is an early development screen. Or maybe the internet play is distinct from the main program - think Red Baron 3d if you've ever played it.

I know that didn't help much, but this will:
""Knights Over Europe" will ship with support for both LAN and Internet play, including the ability for players to cooperatively man multi-crew aircraft. We know this has been a popular feature in past simulations that has been neglected of late..."
(from their interview at http://www.checksix-fr.com)

No worries! \:\) \:\) \:\)

I love these pictures, but I have to wonder a bit. Are these all 'in-game' pictures? Or are some of these submissions by the artist as concepts? If they're all from the game, how old are they? Also, are the planes, for example, all in-game? Some of the screenshots look like they're in the game, but some of them, with those expansive clouds, almost look pasted onto a different background.

I guess we'll have to wait and see what the game gives to us. But isn't it sad that someone has to scour the internet for a few scraps of pictures and we sit here drooling in anticipation? Give us more screenies Aspect!!!! We want more pics!

An interesting side-by-side comparison.

First, here is a picture from the KOE website. It shows a machine gun emplacement.



Next, an image taken from John MacKay's website.



It looks to me as if this is the same revettment.

So, yes, I think we can now say that at least some of the things that we see on MacKay's website have made it into KOE.

This and the other one like it are concept art, not in game. Look at the other obviously in game screenies and then look at these......totally different.



I hope the terrain improves. The current screenies show very CFS1 terrain, blurry textures with random trees. They need to do better. And before anyone says that nice terrain is just "eye candy" I think its vital for immersion. Far more vital than high poly aircraft models.

I think you're right Mogster - if you look at the section on the website, you can see the pictures are organized into two sections: 3d and 2d. Those sort of impressionistic pictures are part of the 2d section, so they're not in-game.

S! All,

There's a pretty good chance you don't see an option for multiplayer on that screen because Multi probably runs off a different .exe like (dare I say it?) Red Baron 3D.

Have any of you seen this from Gamer's Hell?

Thanks for the equally uninformed support guys. I'm hoping that's just an old start-up screen, before they built multiplayer, but if you can't worry on the "worry" thread, where can ya worry? LOL.

Yes I agree the shots look great and actually start to look like a sim \:D

I didn't like the ground textures when I first saw the game, and I hoped they were temporary. However maybe that is the terrain :/. It's looks too blurry, RB3D 1998 with a terrain mod looks as good as that almost, or SDOE with WW1 pack and terrain mods looks as good. Come on Aspect make it "stonking" not just quite good. The terrain looks much better in the shot of the N28's, I hope that's not just an artists background.

Nice pictures though!
