Developer Diary, Part 179 - Discussion

Recommended Posts

You can talk all you want about the other features, but the A-20 was a key reason for buying into the BoK.

The A-20 looks great, but couldn't those of us who had bought into the BoK early on, get this just a little earlier than the rest. Please! Pretty please!

As a Canadian I can say:

 

Bravo! I can taste the air and feel the bite of the cold in those screen shots.

 

The art is clearly something only a Russian, Scandinavian or Canadian could get right - and we appreciate it! An American studio couldn't pull this off.

I'm really surprised about the new pics of the winter graphics, quite an upgrade of the good current graphics.

Good work to all.

Maybe if I squint a lot while being chased by an MC 202 adorned with red meatballs to resemble a Ki-61 Hien, this may suffice to scratch my Pacific itch until the real show hits the Big Screen.  :biggrin:

A bit of a broad statement don't you think? It depends a lot on the artists, not their nationality.

 

 

Also there are plenty of snowy places in the US. Maybe you can come plow the imaginary snow from my driveway after the next snowstorm :P

As long as I don't have to shovel your roof. I do tons of roofs during the winter and often as not it's a giant PITA.

 

Rather be flying. :)

Do you get a ladder and climb up there or with a long extension?

 

Just got my first house, so I'm going to have to learn quickly this winter.

Ladder.

 

If you have a metal roof, be veeeery careful about ladders and extensions. A guy was killed not too far from here when he was up at the edge of his roof, pulling the snow off with the extension shovel. It was a bit warm that day and the whole roof came down in one shot, took him off the ladder and he hit his concrete driveway and that was that. And metal roofs are a ***** to shovel when you are on them too. You really need to be tied off, and tied off properly.

 

Don't be shy about hiring someone. Depending on the roof, sometimes it's just not worth the risk.

Yeah - that was a silly statement.

 

 

Excellent work as always - looking forward to putting the A-20 through it's paces.

The winter shadow work was a nice surprise too.

Winter graphics look absolutely great, but will the bombing lights on the A-20 be functional? As in, will the AI use them in a night raid in the new campaign?

The career will have it, plus I'm in the middle of building an offline scripted campaign for it (1942)

Try the UK, we get <1cm sometimes, which causes mass panic, all the shops get emptied of supplies, and the road system grinds to a halt!   :lol:

Really hoping they are. I just discovered the formation lights on the Spitfire so its quite possible that the devs have implemented something here. The 1943 model IL-2 also has a lighting system inside the cockpit for the gunner and pilot to communicate so that's interesting too.

I'll put Quebec winters against any in the world.

 

Rain, freezing rain, blizzards, and ice storms, and a chilly good night of -30.  Sometimes all in the same week.

 

A typical Monday. :P

If Photobucket didn't screw us i'd show you a picture of my Jeep with the only thing about the snow is about 2" of radio antenna. I lived in Leadville for awhile. We got snow every month of the year. Elevation 10,000ft.

 

Your winters may be tougher, but for someone to say we don't know about snow is ridiculous. People come to Colorado to ski, not sunbath.

I took these a couple of years ago after a snowstorm in Boston:

 

The way the wind interacted with the buildings left my wife's car completely untouched (grey Corolla). The poor people on the top left got the worst of it.

And BTW, wasn't there that small 49th state of the US, called Alaska, where, IIRC, sometimes there are quite low temperatures and a little snow, too. :P

So now we reach the point where we start to brag about how big our snow is?

My snow is bigger than yours and I will show you my huge snowload! :o::blink::wacko:

Only one was bragging. The rest of us are showing him he's wrong.
