Is there a better flight sim ai? BoX is better that RoF. Other than that, I just don't know.
The AI in Wings: Over Flanders Fields is hands down better than that in BOX and allow for pretty consistent suspension of disbelief.
It seems you guys have another sim. You speak about "AI is not that bad" and that it needs just minor fixes. It is the complete opposite for me.
BoX AI is some of the stupidest and boring AI ever made in my oppinion. The only good thing is that they use the same FM.
+1 the opinions of "It's not that bad." doesn't fit my experience whatsoever.
Stupid comments are usually replied with stupid comments
>implying that what Ishtaru said was stupid and/or unfounded.
The thing that throws me off about AI is how they go inverted for a long time until you are close enough and then they dive.
You can see them climbing inverted for a while (wtf??).
I was told by at least one of the "The AI isn't that bad." players in this thread that they've never seen that happen.
Quite frankly, I can't count the number of enemy aircraft that I've shot down that were committed to some sort of negative G inverted climb.
There have also been multiple instances where enemy aircraft have flown inverted for at least a klick before seeing me through the solid floor of their aircraft and split-S'ing away with laser precision.
I'm a passionate fan of the team and BOX and I'm generally reserved about making criticisms like "The AI is terrible, sucks tremendously and holds back the entire SP experience." but... The AI is terrible, it sucks tremendously and it holds back then entire SP experience.
Have you tried the 2 flight vs 2 flight (8v8) quick mission ? I like to play it with all AI at veteran, and I think this is actually quite entertaining. I need to keep a good check of my six as well as picking off targets of opportunity. As others have said fights are also in the vertical.
It's really not that bad.
Yes I have. Yes, the impractical AI behavior persists. Yes, it really is that bad.
