Artificial Intelligence

Q: What will be the main changes to AI?

A: New AI.

Q: Can you tell us about changes in how the player can command the AI?

A: No. Too early.

Q: Do you still plan to have a “bubble” system for the AI, to simplify the flight model and AI of aircraft outside the player’s action radius?

A: I never told such thing. It is too free interpretation of my words.

Q: Will the other crew members in multi-crewed aircraft (like the gunner in a Bf-110C) be more useful, like warning about a bandit behind you?

A: Yes we plan it, if you are speaking  about AI gunner.

Q: In a large battle in FB we typically see 90% losses to the losing side, but in reality that was very unusual. Will that change in BoB? Will morale play more of a factor?

A: I think in FB  if you will set all for maximum and will make maximum settings for enemy – then I don’t think that you will see the total losses. However the campaign mode that ships with the sim need to be middle level that to allow casual users to play it normally and do not drop the sim by the newbies that just tried for the first time flight sim. This is a must be feature.

Q: How many planes will fly with you in BoB in your group? Will it change from the 4 in FB?

A: Any number.

Q: Will damaged AI planes RTB?

A: They RTB even in PF, when they can do it and you don’t attack them. Yes will be.

Q: Will outnumbered aircraft still always attack?

A: Depending of order. Why not? Or you would like to say that British pilots never did that? I 100% know that German and Russian pilots were doing it.

Q: Will damaged AI planes get runway priority? At the moment they circle with the others and often crash before they land.

A: Probably. I would say that we plan it.

Q: Will AI level bomber planes in your flight drop bombs when you drop in BoB?

A: Yes. By a command like “Drop Bombs Now!”

Q: Will night now affect AI behavior?

A: Yes.

Q: Will clouds now affect AI behavior?

A: Yes.

Q: Will AI aircraft run and hide in clouds?

A: Probably. I would say it will depend of situation.

Q: Will it be possible for the player to hide in the sun from AI planes?

A: Probably.
