Because they aren't sup-par. They actually look very realistic when turned up to full. I even mistook a screenshot someone posted for an actual photo before I took more than a casual glance at it.


Now, are the effects slightly sub-par? Depends. Some are about as realistic looking as what the competition puts out. And its several orders of magnitude more realistic looking than what World of Tanks and World of Warplanes uses.

But it doesn't give you the same push-button explosions, with shrapnel flying everywhere, which is what I suspect people want to see.



If you care about explosions and shrapnel to the point where you would rather have that than new game content, then you're playing Aces High for the wrong reasons, and are missing out on so much of what the game has to offer.

look up 5 posts... that is fully turned up. If you can mistake those for real pictures you should get your eyes checked.

The "display horizon" box is checked. I read that as it is on when checked?

Please enlighten me oh great one? And how do you know what I can and can't afford? Why cant HTC do artwork like others? That's all I'm asking for. Better art work. The FM is already in place, just redo the artwork or hire someone who is capable of doing it. Our current designs are OK, but clearly dated.

Graphics of that level would cause me to cancel my account.  Not because I don't like really nice graphics, but rather because my computer cannot cope with graphics of that quality.  My system is more than seven years old and while I would like to have long since replaced it, I cannot afford to do so.

I don't think there are enough teachers in the world to accomplish your request.:)

But per the first question.

Coad =code I.E. program with joke that most programers spelling is less then stellar.

I don't think it would. I am not a programmer nor a graphic artist but redrawing the cockpits to look more realistic shouldn't tax you system any more. Now lighting effects, reflections, and shadows will, but not just the drawing. Please correct me if I am wrong Hitech. I am speaking of purely the artwork, not necessarily the effects.

For instance look at the differences in just the cockpit canopy frames. I can't imagine that canopy frame will tax your system any more than our current version.

Yah....I was hoping something like a brutal Sitting Bull vs  Custer  outcome

(aside....more intense graphics would require more bandwidth as well?)
