you can easily dump a plane in the sea without dying, it goes into flames and you can get out
i agree with nocoolonesleft...it would be great to have nice effects like XWWII's...only reason why im downloading XWWII, the effects
Interstate 2004 is working on active damage models for their cars I saw a prieview movie and it looked pretty cool. It's for BFV but who knows maybe it can be coded into bf42 the games aren't that different in their coding Here is the link to their preview video: http://www.bf-news.de/downloads.php?go=saugen&lid=1149 note:their downloads don't seem to be working right now
The above situation is already possible. Getting the planes to go "half-dead" when low on health.
Currently it doesn't fall in that window much because the amount of damage required to get it there is very precise. I have the understanding that the armor, disabled range, disabled theshold, time to live disabled, ect are all settable in the BF engine. Thus the devs if they wished could tweak the values so disabled shows up more often.
