Just been flying on the Repka full real server (nice server), when this happened...

I had just taken of in my spit 1a and just after the sound cut out (no that's not this problem ) i get bounced by a 109 flown by a guy called "BERLIN" he gets hits on my right wing before i can get out the way.
He flys past and dives...i half roll and im after him, just as im about to fire he dives down to ground level and starts flying through the trees! i cant believe someone would do that, i pull off as i cant bring myself to cheat as well.

So i ask him why hes flying through the trees to escape?
He says on chat its a "tactic" and not cheating! and he always does it, its his "escape tactic"!!

This is about the 3rd person ive seen doing this...but i guess that's what you get, if the trees cant hurt you.

Well I said this would happen, but many refused to believe me, Ive seen it many times myself already, I guess we cant call it a sim if you can fly through Tree's, hell i dont think you can even do that in WOP. Game on the shelf for me at the moment its beyond fixing IMHO.

No hitboxes on the trees are a joke. One of many.

Odd, yes I've flown through trees, but during one crash event my 110 fussy ended up lodged in a tree

ROFL, I had someone do this to me.

I always try to keep at tree top level.

Tree your such a drama queen, the only problem for me atm is the damned sound and low fps (40Fps atm).

Maybe online umpires and referees can help. maybe 3 or 4 guys flying a Spit or 109 and painted in a "Zebra stripe" paint scheme?

biggrin Probably impractical but i am trying. Oh we would also have to make the umpire planes immune to gunfire.

Yup, Frey was right. Tree will have more time for the forums as he clearly needs to catch up, he's way behind now. smile

One reason I liked EAW so much was that the trees were big enough you could play dodge the trees when someone was chasing you. If you hit a tree you exploded but if being chased it gave an opportunity to have your opponent shoot trees rather than you. I think the trees may have been to large for scale but it was fun. Same was true for buildings.


Race you to the Mucky Duck!

lol.. if you are dodging in and out of trees for cover, something has gone extremely wrong in your combat tactics!

Vienna, 2nd rock left.
Couldn't they plant a very occasional "hard tree" in the decoration trees - would still save CPU ressources but if you can't see which one is hard and which one isn't, you would damn well stay out of their way.

I wonder if they have Colonel, as I posted earlier once my aircraft became lodged in a tree, it appeared to be stuck in the branches

That's a great idea!

Someone using the trees as a dodge would face the same consequences as using low fog to evade a pursuer. I like it! biggrin

Why you call it cheating? If the game allow to fly trough trees why should one not do it? Isn`t MP gaming on public servers about to look aft advantages you can get to win against youre opposer? If you don`t follow him or at least to try to track him until he is free of trees it`s your problem, isn`t it? I don`t want to offend you, really, thats just my view.
