Ok I moved chat about what isn't or is not in WOFF or other sims to a new thread. Please keep on topic guys thanks.
See "Nothing to do with Movie thread" if you wish to carry that conversation on please.

Gotta say I really love the goggle effects. Not just the cool raindrops or cracked glass but even just the dark rounding of the edges of the screen. Couple that with the animated engines and shaking cockpits on takeoff, not to mention the other pilots heads looking around, and it's just an amazing new amount of immersion all added in at once. Not sure I will ever be able to go back once I try it.

Question about the head turning. I know the AI scan the sky instead of having a 360 degree view. Is the head turning at all synced to the area of the sky being scanned? Meaning if I see he's looking away, do I have slightly better chances to make a surprise attack on an enemy aircraft? Not actually expecting that but just figured I'd ask.

Thanks Todd, all those things really adds a lot. We have small touches like they may look down at instruments from time to time, or if they are injured they reduce scanning activity and their head may slowly drop down.

Plus the stuff we have only briefly mentioned so far - the new cool AI features too all really adds. Like the new ability to handle air turbulence or AI pilots that may give up on you and head home, but turn back at some point to re-engage if you persist and go after them. AI that are checking more and scanning more so they won't always just continue on. Gunner's "parking" their guns after a fight back to central position. AI not climbing to get to an enemy who is miles above, AI that do not chase a stricken aircraft for a long while they will usually judge how badly damaged you are and leave you to your fate (not always) and so on.

I think I'll leave that scanning as a mystery for the moment smile until you can try it.

The new effects look brilliant, the rain on the goggles, the tracer fire, the shattered glass and the engine and pilot movement.

It's all going to add to the in-flight immersion levels a lot.

Can you confirm if the issues with the medals (particularly the German ones) have been corrected Pol? That would add to the immersion levels too.

Cheers

Albert

Wings and fuselage could be—and often were—pierced in 50 places, missing the occupants by inches (blissfully unaware of how close it had come until they returned to base). Then the sailmaker would carefully cover each hole with a square inch of Irish linen frayed at the edges and with a brushful of dope make our aircraft 'serviceable' again within an hour."

Thanks, I don't believe medals themselves have changed but it will be harder to get promotions and some medals. A list of all items new or changed (that we can remember!) There's a fair number of items in the WOFF BH&H2 thread (Was WOFF2021 Thread) but a full list will be published nearer release of course.
I'd rather not turn this into what is not in the sim thread again.

Thanks for the update Pol, my thinking was simply to get a little preview on stuff you'd never see in your videos, but yes any future questions I'll put in the BH&H2 thread.

The medals themselves certainly don't need updating they look great and I like the write up's you get for each one. It's just the order the German ones are awarded in which needs updating.

Harder promotion rates and medal awarding would be most welcome, it's always been a difficult nut to crack going back to Red Baron II days, through IL2 and now here. So if you've found a way to make it work better then great.

Cheers

Albert

Been away for a while, wow wow and wow, what a pleasant surprise to have a nosy back on the forum and watch the video. Incredible guys, I’m still gobsmacked at what both you and WM continue to pull out of the hat regarding WOFF Pol.

The pilot animations, the scenery the replacement of drums etc just add a new dimension of atmosphere. There’s 2 dev teams that’ll always support and OBD is one of them. Hopefully for both ourselves and you 2 at OBD a release isn’t too long in coming. Maybe a weeks break after and then you can crack on with WOTR exitstageleft ..only kidding guys biggrin

All the best Pol, can’t wait to fire WOFF BHAH II (love the name) up.
Hope everyone here on the forum is well
Best regards Adger.

Welcome back Adger, it has been a while mate.

Yes the new video showcases several of the upcoming improvements very well indeed and I can't wait to find out more and play the finished version. Hopefully it won't be long now, my guess would be.....two weeks winkngrin

Adger... good to see you old chap!
I assume you have been back in Blighty training up all the new sprogs, had enough eh?
You must have missed getting up at 4am, quick cup of cocoa, then up over the lines, freezing your nadgers off at 12,000ft, trying to catch a hun two seater.
I know, you volunteered to come back and snaffle a new suitcase full of medals biggrin
See you in the mess... cheers
