Back!

a) Will specific areas that were hit be visually accurate? ATM, if my Mustang gets hit in the wing close to the fuselage, I have a hole (that rather looks like someone dropped a bowling ball through) that appears in the same slot every time? This may be important for assessing what parts of your plane are hit at just a glance at where some bullet holes are placed.

b) Someone asked this earlier in this thread, but will we get "soft body physics" for aircraft? I mean, will parts of the plane not just get riddeled with holes or vanish entirely, but BEND and fold? Wings folding in half before falling away, or tail getting bent upon a bellylanding.

I also hope we'll get better hit sounds, not those single "clicks" we have now.

I hope so, too! The new Flak Demo looks promising in regards of an overall improved and realistic theatre representation

It's not a feature of 2.5, so its release is not tied to 2.5. DM is still in testing and refining.

I have requested we get better feedback from damage, I think it will be part of DM refinements...

I suggest the sound effects from space invaders.

I may have missed some thing i.e.: DM FM, prior to the 2.5 upgrade. I flew this mission twice, after upgrading to 2.5, where you are escorting 6 B17's in the Mustang, attacking an airfield just as 2 109's are taking off I also put 3 190's in the mix just for fun. Prior to 2.5 I would come in and try strafing the 109's I would damage them to point where they where smoking however they would take off and act as though they had received no damage and also could acceierate like a bat out of hell, have great maneuverability and always managed to get on my tail.

After the 2.5 upgrade in the same mission I did my strafing run damaging the first 109 who did manage to get off the ground smoking and damaged but flying as a damaged aircraft, unable to retract the landing gear and making an attempt to land. Needless to say I showed no mercy. The second 109 was trying to get on my tail but my wing man was on his shooting him up and the 109 broke off his attack on me. Then my wing man and I just took turns shooting him up until he crashed.

After that encounter I started checking around and the 3 190's had been shot down. Looking over my 51 I noticed that I had received some damage to the tip of my left wing, a cannon hole and some machine guns holes, but the damage appeared to only be to sheet medal, prior to the update I believe there would have been flames and the wing coming off.

Any how thank you ED for 2.5 and I may even be buying the Spit. and Mustang campaigns now.
