You are right Pol. Engine failures are already built in and I think the failure rate is fine. I’ve just never seen one where one couldn’t take off because of it. Could it be because failures occur only a certain time after the mission starts?

No they can occur from startup. I have seen some on the start up before.
We don't put any 'broken engine flag' BEFORE you take off though (i.e. the mechanic left a spanner in there) - it only checks engines once the sim is running.

BTW some people hardly ever see failures, some see lots just the way random goes sometimes.

Thank Pol, I'll make sure to check for that spanner next time. Thanks!

I don't get how AAA developers charge $80+ for reskinning the same garbage clicky pointy faster than other idiot clicky pointy's you game but OBD lets this gem go for a song.

A_P, I think just before OBD decided how much to charge for the sim fantastic that is WOFF they fell down and hit their collective heads, really hard. But hey, we all benefit from the absolute best bargain out there.

Here's to lacking sound financial judgement. cheers

I see the same thing in the retro gaming industry. You get independent game designers writing games for ancient systems like Intellivision, Atari2600, Coleco... etc... and charging upwards of 70USD and higher for a complete in box item. I mean, I understand the cost involved and all that, but wtf...

Something the size of WOFFUE is WORTH the $70 bucks you'd pay. Not something bought that will go on a shelf, only to have someone toss it in the trash after your pushing up daisys.

But again... one man's trash, is another's treasure... and all that.

77_Scout, I sent you a PM about this, but we have made some changes to bombing in the next UE version. However I just wanted to check which bomber you see doing this the mostly (the ones particularly noticable)?

Pol, I think he means that the rally point is over the target. The flight will circle the target so that everyone can rejoin formation. Applies to all bombers, all scouts. This also occurs on balloon busting missions. Not the best place for a rally point with the Flack having a field day.

You meant a Vickers, right? Can’t wait. Free plane or no. It’ll be one epic patch.
