My first impression / A few issues noted

Post Sayuuk »

Hi,

first the good things =)

I really like the exterior model and the performance - no problems whatsoever.

I do have a few gripes however:

- the right propeller uses a different "texture", it is flat when you look from the side, the left one is 3D

- please add a repaint that resembles what a still flying 219 might look like (like the chrome ones of US fighters)
=> please WITHOUT SWASTIKAS!! (right now I can only fly the czech one, because I definately don't fly a swastika around!!)

- please add a way to tune the radios and use the OBS without the popup, I really HATE POPUPS! =P


Thanks for this nice plane!

First off, concerning swastikas, A2A is all about authenticity. And since you are flying a WWII German aircraft made by A2A, you should've known from the start that there was to be swastikas painted on it.

For the chromed textures, you'll have to wait for the paintkit to be released.

Secondly, for the "modernized cockpit", I don't think that A2A will release one. As I mentionned earlier, it's all about authenticity.

And lastly, you're right about the exterior model, it' S-W-E-E-T!

@swastikas: I know, I wasn't complaining, I was just asking for them to include another repaint without them as some (like me) like the plane, but don't want to fly around representing Nazi Germany (and I am German, so I can talk about it =P )

@modernized cockpit: not what I meant, let me explain:

=> I like popups if you use them for setting up your plane before flight - like you do with the "normal" A2A planes. But if the only way to use the ILS-indicator is to use a popup that is definately too modern!

1. What I meant is that one could setup a small display (vintage style) that shows the current NAV frequency/com frequency and 5 knobs (Nav Mhz, Nav Khz, OBS, Com Mhz, Com Khz) in some unused corner of the cockpit. I think this would far better integrate than the popup does right now and it would in conjunction with the following addition allow one to completely operate the plane from the VC without any popups.

2. add two additional switches next to the "autopilot master" for "wings level" and "current ALT hold". This would really make the popups obsolete.


Sorry for being unclear the first time, I hope you get what I'm going for.

I think these changes are not too difficult, so maybe AF could make them with the next update, I'd surely appreciate it.


Stefan


edit: spelling for the pitot tube gauge is wrong, this is called "Staurohr" (it says "Stauohr" in the game)

About swastikas - it must be as it was. It isnt here swastika as "political symbol", here is "historical painting/skins".
So it is two different subjects. Do not confuse it.

I'm not saying you should remove them.

I'm asking to please provide more alternative repaints without them. I'm sure that others will do just that when the paintkit comes out, but it doesn't do any harm to ask the developers directly!!

And about historical/political: I as a German feel the obligation to not for any reason use these symbols! Be it in a game or on a model! Everybody can decide for themselves that's why I'm NOT saying remove them completely, but rather add some additional "normal" ones...

I like the plane because I feel it represents the German engineers and genius of the ime, they just built it at for the wrong people. That's why I'd like to have a few more repaints without those damn swastikas!

READ/UNDERSTAND WHAT I WRITE BEFORE YOU ANSWER!!!!



Stefan

P.S.:
AN alternative would be to provide a set of textures for the stock repaints WITHOUT swastikas. I like the version with the drop tank for example, and if those swastikas are removed, I'd use it gladly. This way everyone can decide on their one.

shouldn't be too difficult to remove the swastikas, I'll do one for you if A2A won't. Which texture would you prefer (send me a pm)?

There may be other people that want it, so I'll post the link here.
Here is the texture file for the black bottomed UHU without the swastika's. I didn't test it, but it should be right. If not, please tell me so, OK?
Link is good till 27 november. Make a back-up of the original file first, and then overwrite the texturefile with the one in this zip.

Anyone else confirm this?

EDIT: I just checked all models. None of mine exhibit this issue. Anyone else see this? Can you take a screenshot?

edit: to clarify: this always looks like that, it wasn't just once. And no matter where I position the camera, it stays like this.
