I have been playing fh for along time and have yet to find the moveable flack 88 on any of the maps I was hopeing you ppl could help me out. Also woundering if it was possible to move the bofors that on the fh website they say is portble and how you do it also
No, I don't think you can even move the Bofors at all. However, a while back in 0.61 there was a TOWABLE 88, different than the one you mention. This was on a trailer behind a truck. I hope the devs put it back in, and for the sake of mention, the Bofors has a little frame it sits on, the stationary 88 should be on it's trailer, but without the truck. Cheers, from Gemini's wurst nitemare.
They took out the towed 88 for the 88 on the back of a Sdkf. Something about the former being laggy or buggy or some such IIRC.
That thing was laggy as all hell, especially if you went to 3rd person view outside of the vehicle it would zoom way out 'cause the vehicle was so long and then it'd be a lag fest. The only way I could drive that vehicle was to be in first person view. It was a cool idea that I guess just didn't work out. :( It would be nice to see field guns play a more pivotal role in FH, ie. pushable/towable.
They have AT guns towed by truck on XWW2. I don't see why they couldn't do it on FH.
Likewise WWII online. The 88, Bofors, PAKs, and other guns can all be towed. They can also be moved (very slowly) by "pushing". The little AT guns, like the PAK 37, can be pushed at good speed by the player, which makes for great fun sniping tanks. (Better know the "sweet spot, though!)
FH used to have towable 88s, but they were bugged in some way, and lagged alot too. Would be great to see them return (less laggy that is), as well as seeing movable PAKs and AA guns. But we might have to wait till FH2.
