Bomber Cockpit

17 posts in this topic

Just read about the work on bomber cockpits.

FRB = Full Real Battles. Bomber cockpit view is a huge step toward realism.

As it is now, Bombers have a huge advantage of sight in the game. They can direct team with full 360 view.

Going to get alot more challenging.

I like to try to use my instrument panel in a game. Helps to stay level in the clouds.

 

suggestions:

red green indicator light for gear.

make bombers open bomb bay doors before a drop and close them after. A bomber will not go as fast with open doors.

 

Just some thoughts.

 

Great job WT team..

I actually made a "thank you" thread to send Gaijin the message that these Work in Progress updates are a step in the right direction.  Instead of just raging when they do stuff wrong, we also need to praise them when they do stuff right.  http://forum.warthunder.com/index.php?/topic/31384-will-you-do-more-work-in-progress-features/

Not only for F'R'B.

 

I play HB with joystick (like 40% of HB players do - according to devs) and (ALWAYS) with closed canopy.

As soon as F'R'B will be realistic as to the spotting of enemy planes, I'll switch to it immediately.

No more mouse-aimers and 3rd person view flyers then to bother with.

I don't quite believe that almost half of HB uses joysticks.

From the latest Q&A:

 

Q:Hans.J.Marseille: The gap between FRB and HB is large and the users find it difficult to play in both modes. Perhaps a joystick only tick box.

A:Ilya/Anton- the controls can be adjusted after entering battle. So it would be technically difficult, data shows 40% of users are currently using sticks in HB.

I'm sure, that they cannot tell who is actually flying joystick or not. I think those 40% are NOT using mouse-aim, but the other control modes in HB (simplified/realistic/full aircraft controls).

This does not mean that they are flying joystick/gamepad, it is also possible that they use keyboard only or relative mouse control like in battlefield!

C'mon, he said STICKS!

And, BTW, I use full aircraft control in HB.

 

I have three bottom axis/wheels on my G940 JS (see my sig) mapped to trims...

Its great GJ is finally working on the cockpits, but notice it is a Pe-2, a small attack type, more like 110 or Ju87.

 

Wait till they try the much bigger B-17 or He-111

 

 

Still, I am REALLY happy GJ is moving forward on this!

pushing this poor thread off topic but my G940 will arrive in the mail tomorrow :D

Back on topic: I can't wait for the cockpits I've been wanting to play some more attackers.
