vid analysis: training flight..

Post by DrZebra on Thu Oct 16, 2014 12:59 am

A very comon mistake of those that fly mostly offline is the urge to instantly to the tail of an enemy after a diving attack.. The ai tolerates this, as it has bad defensive behaviour and no heuristic situation analysis. It can not realise and catagorise the state of its surroundings.. (like it flies into a hill instead around it)

Human players online will instantly punish that, as they realize your mistakes:

because when you are in a dive, you trade altitude for speed.. and when your speed is high, your turn rate increases and trying to turn tight will burn a lot of your energy advantage. Despite the fact, that even in a good turning airplane vs a bad turning one, the slower still can have a tighter turning advantage. So instantly buring through your advantage just to try and stay with him is bad. If you pull up, you convert airspeed back to alt, so you store energy and can then change direction fast.
the disadvantage of this (in an environment with many) is that once you ´re slow, you are a good target.



allso included: my pushback fail.. in the up-down oscillation that you encounter behind a plane, I do not push the up cycle away enough for the prop to clear the wheels...

ah, it is a lot less embarassing when you realise that like 99% of all mortals go through that when coming from singlplayer to multiplayer in a flightsimgame... Man, I got murdered so bad when I first tried red baron online, with all the guys playing the game for years.. in all those games there are just some hardcore folks..but the good thing is that the respawn button is all you need to get better ;=)
..and you do have made good progress.. just look at our survival rate!

very interested to hear your experiences... many swear by it, but when I tested it with a friend it wasn´t really totally my cup off tea. But maybe it takes just time..

I´ve also looked into the pushing-over-the-line matter, and found that my technique of pushing the wheels up, with the upper wing, is wrong. If there is enough space between leading edge of the wing and prop, the wheels need to go infront. It is very stable on the w12:
