Bombsight modifier info? - 5/24/2014 2:04:59 PM

Playing around with CMANO in editor mode is the best way to play... Just been looking at bombing accuracy. Is there anyway of providing the player with the 'under the hood' data for some of the database 'properties' that many units have?

Specifically the 'Bombsight' options. From what I can tell an aircraft can have one of a selection of different bomb sights:

1) Basic
2) Basic - Ballistic Computing
3) Advanced Computing
4) Advanced Navigation
....there might be more?

What actual modifiers are applied in each case? Accuracy, most likely but how? and do they only apply to unguided munitions.

Also the other properties like 'helmet mounted sight', 'Fly by Wire' and 'Night Navigation' - do these actually have a in-game effect?

Looking forward to the 'Weather Affects air ops' realism setting - What will this actually impact?

Hi Adam

Yeah they all do but we're not really on board with exposing all of our game mechanics. This is mostly due to we don't want endless arguments over if the value should be a 1 or 1.0000000000005 We have lives to live and you guys don't have that many people building these kinds of games anymore to squander it on stuff like that.

As far as the weather stuff try LGB'ing in a storm

Yeah, I figured that would be the answer. You're correct of course. I was already preparing myself to be disappointed if it wasn't modeled 'my' way.

I've tried the LGB in a storm setup - yes, it makes a big difference. Nice.

Can you confirm that the 'Properties' we see listed all have an effect?

What about the greyed out 'Weather Affects air ops' realism setting option we get. Is it still planned to expand on it at some point? Have you ever considered navigational accuracy modeling? Like a non or pre INS/GPS aircraft getting 'lost' in poor weather. Could be simulated by reducing it's target acquisition chances or making it greyed out and unavailable to command for a short time until it 'fixes' it's position. Lots of variables I know, but I can wish....

Have considered both, and weather limitations will be added as part of the Advanced Strike Mission Planner a little further down the road


Developer "Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations" project!
