Haha, the flying bats. Corona bat. Bats are masters of flying, and those wings WW1 planes have are very bat like.

You can play ROF in VR with an app called VORPX I have used it for a lot of Direct X 11 games but its not quite the same. Games built for VR always seem to be a lot better IMHO

Have you used it with vorpx? Does the headtracking work?

Baeumer,

 

Maybe this deserves to be inserted in the 'Where is the Manual' section if you find it fitting.

Probably a dumb question, but here goes.  I have stand alone Rise of Flight game for many years. Now, I see it is available on IL2 as Flying Circus.  My question...is there anyway I can "convert" my Rise of Flight to Flying Circus?   I'm guessing not and I'll have to play ROF separately...but it doesn't hurt to ask !  

 

Short answer is yes, FC is a different game.

 

Why buy FC? 

1. VR support is a huge factor if you play VR.  All of Great Battles are amazing VR implementations.  

2. AI.  The development team had been steadily improving AI for years and continue to do so.  The AI is so much better now than RoF

3. FM: Flight Model is considerably more advanced and continues to improve.

4. DM: Damage model is much more sophisticated than RoF days

5. Graphics.  Especially at slow WWI speeds, they matter.  All manner of graphics improvements since RoF.

 

That is not a complete list.  FC is simply a more advanced game.  The idea of having RoF and not buying FC is fine if you are completely satisfied with RoF.  Maybe early on the differences were not enough to warrant an FC purchase.  At this stage that argument is like saying I have Red Baron 3D so why do I need RoF?   FC has moved on.

Another reason is the upcoming terrain effect that Han talked about in the latest DD.

There also has been talk about updating the fuel system in the game. I'm sure that FC will benefit from that too.

More aspects will improve in time that in RoF won't happen anymore.

And then there's the controls, as you may remember from RoF, you needed a Force Feedback Joystick to get your stabilizer centered (especially with the Se5a), they have found a solution to keep it centered without the need of a Force Feedback Joystick. (There's nothing wrong with having a FFB stick but good ones are so hard to find nowadays).

 

Have a nice day.

 

:salute:

1. All player-controlled aircraft got 4K quality cockpit textures created by Chiawei = Oyster_KAI = Liang;
4. New visual effects added for and railway fuel tanks and fuel tanker trucks explosions. The airfield fuel storage also explodes with a new effect if there is an entity assigned to it in the mission file;
11. Several cases of incorrect camera operation have been fixed (for example, when the camera remained in the cockpit of a destroyed aircraft or a tank);
24. Lighting on both Halberstadt aircraft can be turned on only with cockpit lamp modification present;

Thank you Oliver88

 

Still, 17 GB (2 hour download) does seem to be inordinate.
