Strafing Tests

Post  Wolverine on Thu Dec 05, 2013 1:13 am

I've just finished some strafing tests and I've got a neat setup that's going to make our missions in The French Connection more...explosive.

I tried to record a track to show it off, but the explosions don't render in the trk files. Nuts. You'll see it soon. It's going to make strafing targets like ammo dump buildings and such quite exciting.

I assume that it will be like the explosion on our last mission, indistinguishable from Oshkosh's "wall of fire".

Something like that.

A little more detail:

If you strafe a target, let's say a bomb holding pen, and you get a glancing shot at it, you might start a fire or cause light damage, maybe a little grey smoke.
But if you give it a good shot in the right spot, it will go up with a bang and debris flying into the air with large black smoke following.

The different will be quite clear. The cool thing is that the big explosion happens almost like the gun camera footage you see. A small fire blooms and then suddenly there's a massive boom that almost instantly fills the air with bits flying in all directions and smoke following.

I've achieved this result through secret 401 herbs and spices....

Wait till you try strafing a moving fuel convoy. Haven't had that much fun since shootin' jack rabbits as a boy. They swerve and squirm away and some shoot back at you, then after you pass and they think it's safe, they line up nicely and head down the road to do it all over again.
