Good for you Jabo. I agree 1000%. I just can't stand waiting and not getting update reports on a weekly basis.

Note: EDITED (6/14/19)
How could I forget this. It is so obvious yet we never miss it when it's not there.
Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men ... The Shadow Knows!

The graphics look is the most important feature of this game and should include:

* realistic vehicle shadows. Not heavy or solid, but barely visible ... and it should be an option.
* realistic terrains (as mentioned there will be actual physical locations)
* trains, trucks, tanks, vehicles, ships, bridges, buildings and better vegetation/trees
* highly detail cockpits
* highly detail aircraft skins
* detailed pilot faces and heads (perhaps pivoting)
* realistic glass (cockpit) reflections with a little bit of "smoky glass" effect
* lights on the wingtips (is this realistic?)
* spinning prop visibility
* realistic engine smoke and damage smoke trails
* cockpit interior and instruments visible from outside plane
* awesome clouds and sky
* realistic water effects including coastal effects like waves
* flak explosions and smoke
* fantastic exploding aircraft
* bullet tracers and better looking shell casings
* better sound effects (no cartoon bail screams)
* a few more exterior view options like chase view
* engine flames (both for jet planes and piston engines)

Very unrealistic without shadows...

This is too hard and sharp. See next example.

Shadows with soft edges is nice, but options could be: soft, medium, hard
The current .dot commands for shadows is not working on my Mac.
.shadows 0 | 1 | 2 | 3

I also feel that the designers of the new game should share their progress
and efforts here in the forum and let some others of us have input. Can we
see images of what's going on?

Check out my FaceBook page (below) where I will post images (like cockpit glass,
engine flames, spinning prop, clouds, water and waves, etc.)

Click on the link below and then go to Photos. In Photos, go to the Album: New Warbirds 2020.

One thing that online combat games struggle with is making the graphic settings fair for everyone. Lots of top gamers use ultra-low settings to help them detect the enemy first. I think having options for shadows, non-game crucial textures or clutter is good but people running without all the bells and whistles should not have an advantage spotting or detecting enemy vehicles. A new game engine for WB2020 would allow lots of cool effects only dreamed off before but if people running realistic cloud effects are at a disadvantage to those not running them it defeats the purpose of a fair and even playing field.

Hope All Works Out.;-)))
Tried To Play Some Of The Newer Flight Sims, But Could Not Get X52 Stick To Work, So Quit Trying.{ Cliffs Of Dover}
Hope This New Game Does Not Have The Same Problems.

Are any of the ideas presented in the thread being implemented?

Here's another one. Ear Candy!

How about some snippets of wartime music in the tower. Random
selections every time you exit to the tower. Listen to this real
catchy tune.

After watching the video, I think this is another one for the wish list.
How about showing the wings being blown off and detaching in slow
motion. Not just snap off like it is in the current game.

... From May 24th ...

Just wondering what areas of the new game have been worked on?
It's about time to see some more Terrain screens. Andy W. and I would
like to be doing something with plane skins about now. We can't just
spit them out at the last minute. They take time to do and we might
still have to learn new code issues.


Time for MORE INFO.

Lets make sure we get the revolver in the chute back.I actually shot down a plane in WB 2 with one. Also, the old Tower view is missed. Was a great way to see the entire field from the tower.. Also after all these years of waiting, how about an actual engine startup sound file? Theres been a slider in the sound settings for years to adjust it but no file ever added. Would also like to have a feature from Hellcats where there was a stuttering engine sound with reduced performance when hit and engine oil that smeared over the windshield when hit in the right places making it really hard to see and land etc. A few small things that would be great if added..
