Very nice Pol. Will the Heinkel be flyable?

Re: WOTR pics - 06/17/18 07:16 PM

Initially no. We will release full details of what is included nearer release. Not long to go now anyway ...

Re: WOTR pics - 06/18/18 12:35 AM

Very nice pictures, I am looking forward to purchasing and flying WOTR. yep Will there be a recording feature in WOTR and possibly a new external viewing camera mode? A more traditional, F2 = external, F3 = Flyby... Etc???

Yes,being able to do more cinematically would be a very big feature. Some new fixed views and a free camera would open up a lot of creative possibilities.

Seriously though my friend, this looks amazing! Can't wait to take it for a spin! Are the system requirements close to WOFF:UE?

Keep pressing on gents, looks like you are polishing a real gem!

Still hoping it will have a shiny new DX11 engine to power it as well. I get there are no guarantees, but I can hope. smile Two weeks! wink

Any chance you could let us know what phase of the war you're starting out with? From the pics so far it looks to be a Battle of France/Battle of Britain campaign.

Gentlemen,

I am not able to share my impression in words of WOTR (Beta) however Pol was kind enough to allow me to share a few pics with you. I hope you enjoy them. I don't believe I am breaking the NDA in any way by simply commenting that the sounds are amazing (no specifics) and Matt is right to be proud of his scoring, once again.

I have to say, raiding channel ships could become a new addiction for me. Hope you don't mind a few more pics. Not really giving anything away I don't think by saying that the immersion I was hoping for is certainly all there.

quoting WOTR site

'The intention is that it will eventually encompass the whole of WW2 and will be centered in Europe. From the Battle of France, Battle of Britain to the massive day and night raids over Germany and German held territories'
Posted By: Polovski

Re: WOTR pics - 07/21/18 06:32 PM

In this Phase, yes Battle of Britain. If it does well there will be more phases for the war, if not probably not wink

Key word on the quote from the website is "eventually"

Re: WOTR pics - 07/23/18 06:07 AM

This is what CFS3 needs to keep going strong. Hard to believe it's such a old sim. Still play one of my 9 installs every day along with IL-2 1946 and the many installs i have for it. Wonder how it will compare to the new IL-2 Great Battles series because it looks pretty awesome too though i don't have them yet but holding out for WOTR. If it is anything like WOFF-UE it ought to be pretty awesome. Regards,Scott
Posted By: mongoose44

Re: WOTR pics - 07/24/18 02:24 AM

Just a couple of questions.
Will the aircraft be bump mapped? Hard to tell from the pictures.
The aircraft look awfully clean; need more scuffs, guns residue around gun ports; generally a bit more worn.
Is this still going to be using CFS3/WOFF terrain or new improved terrain? Thinking along CLoD lines?

Other than that, I will love the searchlights and other effects I see there.

It's 1940, the craft are fresh out of the factory and some have first flight on them, they should be clean ! THey don't have 50 years on them.
Posted By: Polovski

Re: WOTR pics - 07/24/18 10:18 AM

But they do have some wear on them and marks from guns exhausts, scratches and so on - but not the excessive wear as seem in some sims and many of these aircraft were new, or newly replaced so some would be quite fresh as JimBob says. No single wear and tear skin will cope with the entire war supply..
Posted By: Hellshade

Re: WOTR pics - 07/24/18 10:34 AM

Without giving away anything specific, let me just say that this isn't WOFF UE with a WWII "coat of paint" on it.

Flying without labels brings with it the anxiety of knowing that if you miss seeing one bandit - you could be dead from his guns in an instant if he gets the right hits with his cannons on you. Most of the wear and tear is from the stress and fear that grinds down the pilot. wink

Are we going to see new gameplay features?
Posted By: Polovski

Re: WOTR pics - 07/27/18 11:09 AM

You mean from flying 100 mph in WW1 over the lines, to flying at 300mph in WW2 defending ships or airfields etc, or attacking Britain ? I hope so wink.

It's a new campaign totally geared for the WW2 environment and the BoB period. Very different attacks and tactics from WW1 of course.
AI has lots of new WW2 knowledge, for example like flying the JU87 and performing proper dive bombing whilst trying to hit a moving ship
AI can react differently in certain conditions to WOFF.
DM changes, you can belly land for example now.

However it is still all about single player immersion up in the sky defending your country or attacking with great AI.

You can try to belly land now...but you are taking your life into your hands because it's no easy feat to accomplish. It requires real skill, as does all of the sim.

Re: WOTR pics - 07/27/18 02:57 PM

Is the belly landing difficult because of the fences?
Seriously, will there be a need to belly land? What I mean, is the landing gear damage modelled, so that if it’s hit it will not extend?

OBD is modeling WWII with great accuracy. Belly landings are definately not in there as an e-sport. biggrin

Ha Ha...good one. I'm with you on that for sure!
Posted By: Trooper117

Re: WOTR pics - 07/27/18 06:53 PM

Well, there are times when a belly landing is pretty much your only option...
If your gear is damaged or won't lock down, (it will be interesting to know if pumping the gear down by hand is modelled)...
Or your chosen piece of ground to make an emergency landing is unsuitable for a wheels down landing etc... I've seen a few wheels up landings in real life... glad to say no one was injured smile
Posted By: Polovski

Re: WOTR pics - 07/27/18 10:11 PM

When you have to go for it you can, but it's tricky to do safely on some of the rough terrain. Yes I had to pump the gear down manually at one point in the Hurricane.
Posted By: Fullofit

Re: WOTR pics - 07/27/18 10:34 PM

Interesting Pol, without going to the outside view, how can you tell the gear isn’t down? Does the “landing gear not in locked position” indicator work on the cockpit panel?

Posted By: MajorMagee

Re: WOTR pics - 07/28/18 12:47 AM

CFS3 has always had an oil slick special effect.

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]

(The images above show the lighter, more transparent/iridescent oil textures provided with the all-in-one effects.xml that Daiwiletti and I put together recently)

Perhaps WOTR will have some additional refinements like oil that trails along in the wake of a wounded ship.

To me it looks like the original texture is still being used in WOTR, as it doesn't blend in very well and creates a discrete black/green blotch on the surface.

[Linked Image]

I love the reflections in the new cockpit by the way...
Posted By: Robert_Wiggins

Re: WOTR pics - 07/28/18 02:11 AM

Refinements will come in time I'm sure. So much to do and so few devs to do it.

Here's how nutty I am. I haven't had jack-all time to fly in forever. In addition to a long commute, my company needs 50 hr/week to meet our current backlog at least through September; and I'm still working through permotting and so on to remedy the landslide I had earlier this year in addition to the usual summer work on our 6 acres and watching the grandkids.

And I'll be a Day 1 purchaser if I see it coming.

That, my friends, is Barmy!

Engaged two Heinkels and damaged both, but my engine was hit and rapidly stopped. I was aiming for a dead stick wheels up landing at Manston.
Came in lovely, slid along on the old girls belly, no problem, she was straight as you like... then the dreaded OBD fence arrived... Hurri instantly turned into scrap metal and blew up!... lol!

I'm pretty sure in reality, a Merlin III engine would have smashed through the fence like it wasn't there, but, Hey Ho... such is life biggrin

On patrol south of Bournemouth, the usual convoy sweep... got into a scrap with a Heinkel and got jumped by a 109 who put a couple of holes in my starboard fuselage.
Didn't find out until I landed (had to divert to Christchurch as it shook me up a little)... I didn't even see the bloody 109 until he screamed past me.

Also, my grandfather told me a story of how his unit was crossing the road in France a few days after D Day when a 109 came screaming low over a hill barreling right towards him. He thought he was going to be strafed for sure and kind of clenched his teeth, but the plane just wooshed by. A moment later, a Spitfire raced by in hot pursuit. About a half minute after that, there was a loud explosion and some smoke and then presently, the Spitfire did a climbing turn back into sight and vanished the way it had come...

P.S. On a serious note. My Hat is off to OBD for the way clouds are rendered(?) in WOTR. It is the only time I can remember in a flight sim seeing a plane through the clouds. If I am remembering correctly, correct me if I am wrong, usually you are either blocked by the clouds or outside the clouds. The fourth picture here is what I am referring to as being seen in the clouds. Quite nice I think. yep thumbsup

Thank you Ace_Pilto. WOTR is pretty easy on the eyes and I jut enjoy taking pics. The down side is I hardly ever just seem to fly a mission without stopping and shooting pics. I think I am going to have to designate picture taking days and actual Campaign days so I can truly enjoy what WOTR has to offer without interruption. hahaha

Adger, it is always a pleasure to see your pictures and hear of your experiences in the different sims we fly. Glad you like the pics, it is just one of the side pleasures that come along with this wonderful Sim.


More Cowbell! I mean more PICTURES Sir!!!! yep

To POL, WM, Mat, MF and others I don't know in OBD . What a wonderful job you have done in producing WOTR. I honestly have to say after just a few missions that OBD has taken WOTR one notch above WOFF UE, and I Love WOFF UE also, but this just visually looks Fresh and feels really good in the FM department and the music. I am looking forward to entering a Campaign this weekend and experiencing what you all have prepared for me in the BOB, especially the AI. I just want to say that the pics I have posted are straight from the game, no Photoshop what so ever. What fabulous visuals WOTR presents us with. Thanks Again Guys. S!

Posted By: 33lima

Re: WOTR pics - 10/26/18 08:04 PM

Those Flying Pencils need to tighten up their formation very considerably! Looks like a stock CFS3 bomber formation there, ie same as fighters. I know it was 'close up for fighters, spread out for flak' (ie spacing could be varied depending on the threat) but even for flak, that Do 17 outfit looks way too spread out.

Re: WOTR pics - 10/27/18 03:49 PM

Formations in WOTR or WOFF have nothing at all to do with CFS3.

Like the Vietnamese army officer supposedly said to the US Army officer who observed that the latter never lost a battle in the Vietnam War, Pol, that may be true, but it is irrelevant. The Dorniers (and German bombers generally, from what I have seen) should be in much tighter formation.

Some proof:

Some proof:

Videos I don't need- it has nothing to do with not believing you. Just confirming the formations are not controlled by CFS3, little is.
So it not irrelavant, it was correcting an asumption. It can be adjusted, but that would be for all. We do not have variable formations depending on craft type and situation - that would be a new feature, maybe one day...
Posted By: 33lima

Re: WOTR pics - 10/28/18 12:06 PM

Fair enough Pol but I wasn't assuming that the formations were those of CFS3 (which WoFF significantly fixed/improved on, of course, not least the formation-keeping). Just stating that they looked like them ie too widely spaced for bombers. Variable formation sizes would be a needless feature; if anything, ketten within a staffel changing formation for the bomb run would be more worthwhile, tho again unessential. What really appears to be needed (IF the pics I have seen are representative) is the default bomber formation spacing to be significantly tighter than in that pic, even allowing for FoV.

But yes great pics. And bravo for choosing the Hurricane over the sexier Spitfire for the RAF's leading lady.

I may pick this up for Xmas tho as well as seemingly small formation sizes, I am very wary of the apparent lack of simulation of ground control interaction. Stock CFS3 didn't suffer too badly from that, due to its tactical setting (tho even there it should be present) but for the Battle, and for any tactical setting involving the player in a radio- and radar-based air defence, something better than using the TAC is needed, which CFS2 managed via scripted campaign missions but CFS3 bottled it.

I posted an After Action Report in the AAR thread above with a lot of new pictures. It is actually a During Mission Report actually captioning the mission from beginning to end as I flew it as a British pilot. I had fun writing it and of course flying it and taking the pics. Check it out here if you like.

Re: WOTR pics - 10/29/18 09:42 AM

Sure but when you say "Looks like a stock CFS3 bomber formation there," many people including me take that as "looks like they are using" which is not the case, so I am clearing it up that's it.

If people sit and wait until maybe one day it's the perfect sim with a trillion features. then we won't get there as there won't be enough sales to carry on. Everyone has their pet feature or interest and it takes years to add all the small items that half a dozen people would not like or want.

Formation spacing can be easily edited. Its the days of testing all possibilities of situations and all aircraft that takes the time.

The Plane is a bit dinged up?... Did you say the plane is a bit dinged up?.. No you didn't say The Plane is a bit dinged up did you Stache???
Common Mannn!!! Dude, you tore off both wings, bent every blade of the prop, you tore off the whole underside of the plane including the radiator scoop. This is not to mention the 3 bullet holes in the cylinder head that you can see in the panel above the exhaust manifold and then there is the gaping hole through the access panel right below the exhaust manifold!!! You lost oil pressure? Geee, I wonder how you lost oil pressure??? I thought these Rolls Royce engines had self sealing cylinder heads? A little bit dinged up! Your Superior needs to put you in Tiger Moths from now on. At least they are cheaper to write off when you ding them up a bit. A bit dinged up!!! Off to CLOD with you!!! cuss

Stache, this is how you land a Hurricane when its hydraulics have been shot up. You do it off to the side of the runway and in the grass. What is really cool is that I was heading right for some trees and then I just kicked the rudder and I turned right between them.
I am not sure how accurate this is, but as I was seeing my virtual pilots life flash before my eyes it allowed me to live to fight another day. The only problem is that the Master Crew Chief said she was totaled anyway. AAAARRRRGGGGGG ! winkngrin

Hurricane R4118 and I were doing really well. Four confirmed kills, 8 missions and no technical troubles. That was until I got peppered by return fire from a Stuka. The hydraulics were shot to pieces and I had to make a gear up landing at Hornchurch. R4118 was a write-off frown

Re: WOTR pics - 03/03/19 04:53 PM

Thanks Stache.

I'm getting there with the belly landings. Just completed a scramble to intercept an incoming raid over the South coast. I suffered engine failure but managed to make it to a friendly field and pump down the gear. Unforunately, I had no flaps and glided in a bit too fast. I ended up overshooting the runway and ripping off the wings on another Hurricane.

Re: WOTR pics - 03/07/19 04:48 AM

Nice pictures PO_Klonko. Here are a few more I have taken recently.

This first one has a bit of a story to go with it. It is the story of how good and realistically faithful WOTR is. I was flying the Quick Scenarios Scramble Mission. Our Squad took off and was turning off to the right to come around and take on the attacking huns. I was not keeping up with my Mates as my air speed was very low like 140. The first 109 past me as I was trying to turn to engage him, but my air speed just sucked! I was standing still as this monster sped by me. I do a quick once over of my Hurricane's console, prop pitch... good, flaps... up, mixture & fuel pressure... good, Oil temp & pressure... good, rad temp & pressure... good! As I did this quick scan in a matter of seconds I missed the one glaring problem that was the reason for my lack of speed, which most of you may have guessed by now, but I was also trying to keep eyes on my attacker. As I moved my eyes from console to my six and back to my console, then back to my six to pull a tight enough turn, just barely, to stay in the air and thwart off my attacker again. It was during one of the glances from my Hurrican's console to a forward right 45% movement around to check my six again, THAT I SAW THIS IN MY HURRICANE'S SHADOW ON THE FIELD BELOW ME AND KNEW INSTANTLY WHAT I HAD MISSED. This minute detail, even in its depiction of a shadow, that, yes I am a Dumb ass rolleyes , I had missed was keeping me slow. This is how good WOTR is.I retracted my gear while fighting off the 109 and then pressed the attack to get a kill of one of the attacking 109s. This is what is so endearing to me about WOTR. Never mind the sheer number of aircraft in the air, the clouds(Best in the business as far as I am concerned), the huge number of Squadrons to fly this BOB Campaign from, the AI(again best in the business IMHO), the presentation of the GUI,...never mind all of that, it is little details like this that give me great enjoyment in WOTR. Not to mention that this little detail allowed me to fight on, get a kill and return home, a humbled pilot but still alive. These are the moments a Sim pilot lives for and enjoys to no end. I captured this picture from the Fraps video I was recording of this mission. This was an awesome moment in WOTR! winkngrin

'Don't panic! Don't panic' as Cpl Jones would have said. It's probably just one of those anti-invasion obstacles intended to prevent glider landings, which proved mainly to be a hazard for friendly aircraft making forced landings. Some patriotic local citizen has likely decided this stretch of road was too attractive for any Nazi glider pilot. The thought of a bunch of tough paratroopers dressed as Nuns was probably the last straw. smile

Blade, that prang certainly ought to earn the pilot (the infamous Pilot Officer Prune, by any chance?) an instant MHDOIF, to add to his DFC (and bar).

If anyone doesn't know what that is, you now have the priceless opportunity to learn something new about forces humour, RAF WW2 style smile

Edit: - see link here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Most_Highly_Derogatory_Order_of_the_Irremovable_Finger

IIRC the book 'Freedom's Battle - the war in the air', reprinted in paperback a few years ago, contains a good few citations from Tee Emm for this award, along with many RAF doggerels like those of the RFC from WW1, but often more rude, with many unforgettable lines like like 'I didn't want to join the air force/I didn't want my *******s shot away' and 'They sent us out to Egypt, a very pleasant land/Where miles and miles of sweet eff-all are covered up with sand'. Recommended.
Posted By: Blade_Meister

Re: WOTR pics - 05/11/19 03:21 PM

33 lima, I am thinking that is a little bit more than a prang, but yes it most certainly does deserve the MHDOIF. Pretty sure this was early testing on the stall update Mark and WM were working on. For a low level stall and low alt crash, the DM for this prang as you call it is pretty good I think. yep

Re: WOTR pics - 05/23/19 05:59 PM

33LIMA;

You are correct about the size and colour. It is difficult to find just the right fonts for the skinning app. There were so many variations used in real life. Perhaps over time they can be improved. 100% accuracy to the original requires significant time and the pressure was on to get the skins out there for you folks.

We are working on releasing a Spitfire skins template so you folks can add your own.

This is up in middle England later in the war where Gen. Patton ar15 is. This is a fake airfield with blow up hangers and blow up Hurricanes on the flight line.

Re: WOTR pics - 07/19/19 10:02 PM

Blade;

How on earth did the RAF65 (YT) get grouped with the RAF92(QJ), and in addition RAF92 are all flying the same skin (A3 has letter "D") and not the (AP) skin which has the letter "A".

Very confusing mate but still a nice picture!
Posted By: Blade_Meister

Re: WOTR pics - 07/19/19 11:10 PM

Relax RW, that is not your fault. I was just testing a hopeful mod and I flew it in QC and I chose the skin because I had never seen it before. hahaha As far as all of the others being "D" , I have no idea. I assume because it is QC?
1 step at a time 33lima. yep To make this clear this is not my mod but another WOTR patron has taken on this task from my questioning him as to how to tighten Formations for me to take pictures in game with. He deserves all of the credit and will receive it if he decides to share it.

Re: WOTR pics - 07/21/19 02:29 PM

Beautiful! Fine for 109s, too. Looks like something straight out of...wait for it...the Battle of Britain! smile A VAST improvement. And it seems they can hold that formation in at least 30 degree turns, too!


If this works for bombers too - and if (on just over min spec) the latter can consistently operate a single raid strength (excluding escorts) of not less than twenty (three staffeln of 9 would be ideal), rather than ten or a dozen - I'm in!
Posted By: Polovski

Re: WOTR pics - 07/21/19 08:17 PM

Off topic for this screenshot thread but it's fairly easy to change the formations, it will just need thorough testing in various weathers, groups, waypoints etc Also the merge could be much more chaotic / collisions. We improved the AI dramatically with better collision avoidance so they may handle very close formations a little better but it would need testing of course.

BTW it may affect other things sudden turns, landing timings / collisions and so on - hopefully not.
Posted By: Blade_Meister

Re: WOTR pics - 07/23/19 12:26 AM

So far we have only seen 1 collision. The takeoffs & landings are still working fine. After takeoff when forming up most planes pass the Leader but then slowly fall back into Formation. The merge seems fine. I am going to make myself the leader and put a nine, then 12 plane formation through its paces and see what happens. Generally so far it is working well and looking good. Hangar 22 has a WIP version posted for people to test.

The different sections do get a little anxious at times, Green Section racing a bit ahead of where it should stay(far left Vic in the picture).

Re: WOTR pics - 09/22/19 10:26 AM

Lovely pics, and good to see the different individual aircraft ID letters and that the Spits are featuring both A and B Schemes on their upper surfaces. The Spitfire's upper wing Type B roundel does need to be larger, though, they were supposed to be as large as they could be, without impinging on the aileron, notwithstanding any exceptions. The unsightly gas warning panels seem to have been on their way out from about mid-1940.
Posted By: Robert_Wiggins

Re: WOTR pics - 09/22/19 07:58 PM

33Lima your comments are acknowledged but I don't believe OBD have yet implemented code to address aircraft selection based on skin changes over time. In fact It would require rework of the squadrons with many different changes based on timeframe. It is probably doable but not enough skinning staff to address it at this tme.

Just my opinion!
Posted By: 33lima

Re: WOTR pics - 09/22/19 08:44 PM

Understood and fully appreciated Robert - which is why for the sake of greater realism, it's desirable to use the capacity which does exist to feature a representative appearance, rather than an exceptional (or possibly inaccurate) one.

For example, MJF Bowyer's 'Fighting Colours' features a multi-view drawing of Hurricane I L1768 GG-K after delivery to 151 Squadron in January 1939 (before the ID letters changed at the outbreak of war) and this DOES feature SMALL B Type blue/red roundels on the upper wings (and fuselage sides for that matter). And the same book even has a photo showing L1934 OP-D of 3 Squadron with one such small roundel on the port upper wing and none at all on the starboard, which the author says he saw 'on quite a number of fighters including Spitfires'. And there's a pic of 611 Squadron's Spits at Drem in April 1940 in the Osprey Spit I/II aces book with what looks like exactly the same small upper wing roundels as featured on the WotR Spitfire. But during the BoB, most (if not all) squadron service Spitfires had the regulation, larger Type B roundel on their upper wings, so if there has to be one type of roundel in that position on the WoTR Spit, the larger one is objectively the more realistic choice. Just like if you HAD to choose a single RAF fighter undersurface colour for the BoB, easily the most representative choice would be Sky/duck egg green, not the earlier black/white or aluminium.

Not that bigger or smaller upper wing roundels would have helped with the first engagement featured here:



As for the gas warning patch, without it seems to be the most common for the period, and a vet quoted in 'Scramble! - a narrative history...' mentions seeing them in many places, but not actually on their aircraft.
Posted By: Robert_Wiggins

Re: WOTR pics - 09/23/19 02:23 AM

I appreciate your input and yes changes can be made going forward. I offered my skinning skills but I am far from an experts on the aircraft in BoB. I have utilized historical data that I had access to with limited research time given the OBD schedule.

In fact I"m sure OBD would welcome any skinners with your knowledge to come on board. The assistance would certainly be appreciated. Any effort could be put towards cleaning up inaccuracies. If you are willing, we could use your help skinning.

At the moment my focus is to complete some necessary changes OBD has asked for.

Best Regards and thanks for the constructive criticism, it's appreciated.

Ah, if I only had the skill and patience with a paint program to match the size of the modest library! Only skin I ever made was a CFS3 Ju88A to whose stock skin I added 'wellenmuster' squiggles above and a well-weathered temporary black finish beneath, which somebody must have liked as it was (with full permission) added to the ETO expansion...

I wonder if we have some similar sources - some of your excellent Bf109 skins seem to be based on the profiles by Richard Ward in the classic Osprey Aircam Battle of Britain Special, which tried harder than most to get the 109's common upper camouflage patterns right (but not quite, and still had most in 70/71/65 instead of 71/02/65 or even early versions of 74/75/76). Still a pretty good source after all these years, although thanks to it, I got the lighter undersurface colour wrong (choosing Sky, instead of the likely correct Aluminium fuselage and White starboard wing) on a model I made back about 1980 for an old workmate's dad, of his 616 Sqn Spit, L1055.

But I digress, keep up the good work.

You have some sigificant knowledge. Too bad I can't entice you to the skiing game. The effort you put into the JU88 skin looks good.

Well I can try, Robert. What's needed? Drop me a PM if you don't mind. I'm the meantime, I'll have a look at what I can find here on skinning, templates etc.

Nice picks Gents! 33lima, welcome to the neighborhood. I see you took a stroll over to CheifWH's hangar and picked up some mods. I have been severely distracted this week with GBS Bodenplatte patch and then WOFF PE. I haven't gotten out of the P38 since I downloaded the patch. Then WOFF PE had me hooked in the cockpit watching the new animations and belt feeds not to mention the step up in graphics. I wish I was retired and could spend a few hours in each of my Sims per day. I am going to have to get back here into WOTR or somebody is going to get upset with me. Going to try to focus on WOTR on Monday. OBD are working on a lot of good stuff over here right in stride with the WOFF PE work they have been doing. yep

Re: WOTR pics - 10/09/19 02:08 PM

Had to post this one as I think it's one of the best Hurricane skins I've seen so far (151 Squadron). Although it does not yet have the missing 'bite' of Dark Earth added to the port wing, and some-one forgot to retract the footstep, it is nicely weathered, has the right shade of yellow (Chrome Yellow, IIRC) on the fuselage roundels and the more common shade of grey for the squadron codes, plus a less bland undersurface than the stock scheme. And with the glossiness set low in game, I much prefer the general finish and OBD's representation of Dark Green and Dark Earth to CloD's. Nicely done!

Re: WOTR pics - 10/09/19 04:31 PM

There are two less obvious details that I particularly like on display in this picture, one of which which I noticed at the time, the other I didn't.

[Linked Image]

The first one is the way it captures the realistic silver glint on the barrage balloons.

The second one is the one I didn't notice at first, which is the dockside crane in the act of loading or unloading the ship visible under my Spitfire's rear fuselage, in the Royal Victoria Dock.

Dull grey-brown textures for dock areas and long, simple low poly quayside warehouses, in place of what's there now, would be even better.

Re: WOTR pics - 10/09/19 08:58 PM

I set it so the footstep deploys when you open the canopy. so it comes out at least when on the ground with canopy open.

Re: WOTR pics - 10/09/19 09:29 PM

Makes sense, fair enough. I understand the footstep was connected mechanically to the flap over the handgrip behind the cockpit so when the pilot put his hand in that and pressed in the flap, the step would extend. But pics of unoccupied static Hurris show that there was a way of locking the step down. There is also that pic of restored R4118 airborne, with everything hanging - including the step.

Re: WOTR pics - 10/10/19 08:27 PM

You can't have too many pictures (virtual or not) of the most iconic and beautiful warplane ever to grace the skies, so here's another one, of Gordon Olive's kite from 65 Squadron. Several of his vivid post war paintings (reproduced in 'Spitfire Ace') of his air battles from May to September 1940 show his aeroplanes, but he portrays all the British fighters with the Sky spinners and rear fuselage bands that were only introduced about November 1940. But this is how the Spits he flew would really have looked, during the Battle.

Top hole! As you can see, bally Jerry pranged his kite right in the how's-your-father; hairy blighter dicky-birded, feathered back on his sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harpers and caught his can in the Bertie. smile

But by then it was too late. The first cabbage crates hit London on July the 7th. That was just the beginning.
