New FlightGear Bombable AI Scenario Movie!

Postby Vodoun da Vinci » Sun Oct 16, 2011 4:54 pm

The developmental movies have been deleted and a new, permanent movie complete with music soundtrack has been uploaded. This one primarily feature head on attacks by custom P-51D Mustangs over Sochi, Russia.

Watch on Youtube

The code in the Mustangs has been hacked to make them aggressive in attacking head on. My favorite style with my FW-190 D9 Dora supplied by Detlef Faber. The clips have been recorded with time set to evening and morning (dusk and dawn) as this provides the kind of dark and contrasting sky that best suits me for hunting.

Thanks for looking!

That looked amazing! They come really close. What would happen if there was a collision? I think this is your best video yet, the skies looked really cool too.

Unfortunately, I have not had any luck in having collisions register in Bombable - In the past, if you hit an AI aircraft it registered as a crash but in the present release it does not. There *are* collisions in these. It's unavoidable as the 'Bots are tuned to attack relentlessly.

They look pretty vicious indeed. :)

Are you planning to release all the AI work you've been doing sometime?

Wow..one of my movies and the Bombable concept has made it to the FGFS newsletter? :shock:

I'm shocked and absolutley thrilled. Thanks so much, Hooray, for contributing this for this very busy and overwhelmed FGFS/Bombable aficionado. I'll try and update or add some commentary as time permits. :D

Sealbhach: I intend to release my AI Scenarios and custom aircraft at FGUK as soon as we perfect our hangar/upload concept and such at FGUK. But beware...an aweful lot of my scenarios and movies make it "look easy" and there is a terrible burden put upon potential combat pilots to replicate a lot of these stunts and flying. I have designed these scenarios and I have piloted the aircraft and painted the aircraft and tweaked the code to give myself the ability to capture these things as my mind perceives aerial combat. I have interviewed a few pilots of WWII vintage era combat and tweaked the Bombable parameters to approximate some degree of what these warriors have handed to me.

To achieve similar results would require that virtual pilots in FGFS proceed from the same perspective that I have and this is unlikely. I will release my hacks but I'd be surprised if others will will appreciate the complexity and spirituality I have designed.

Sincerely, Thanks for Looking!

Hey um can I have your AI scenarios? I really want those with the P-51s, P-47s, and P38s!

Soon. But still a few weeks out....also, I am tweaking code a bit yet in the AI' Bots and apparently the newest Bombable (which I have not yet loaded and tried... :oops: ) has the ability to move any scenario to anywhere you'd like in the world. So this changes my concept a bit.

But yes, I intend to make available all the custom stuff I have which includes 6 different liveries of FW 190 AI 'Bots as well as the custom liveried P-51s, P-38s, P-47s and even a BF-109.

Perhaps you should wait until the overhaul of the FW 190 by D. Faber is done....

It will be a while yet...but generally speaking I don't "wait" on outside interventions, improvements, or development and make movies as the time becomes available and the mood strikes me using what is available to me at the time. :D

Waiting for something "better" is a never ending wait in FGFS...there is always something improved or better 6 months or a year away. :wink:
