Over flanders phase 3 (fun removed)

Recommended Posts

In over flanders phase 2 you could watch your plane crash into the ground or try to land it despite being shot to pieces. I was most surprised after getting phase 3 to discover this is no longer shown. All I get is a message saying no more goals and bang dumped back to a screen saying you’re dead injured etc. Why was this feature taken out? Can the programme be hacked to restore the screen as in phase 2 or is this just a bug?

Try these settings in OFF Workshop:

 

Auto Exit CFS3 - ON

Auto Exit Mission - OFF

 

There are still times when OFF 'auto-ends' a mission but with these settings it usually waits till you are on the ground, dead or alive.

 

(not sure if these are Hat in the Ring additions to the Workshop, tho IIRC they were introduced earlier, with one of the patches to BH&H, so you shoud have them even without HitR)

PS in finding the above settings let me avoid arbitrary mission endings, it may make a difference that I play DID - 'Dead ISN'T Dead', aka 'Pilot never dies'. I think it's much better. Each to their own, but I for one don't buy the macho stuff about dead is dead being for real simmers, or more realistic, or making you more circumspect. It didn't make me fly any more carefully - maybe if my seat had a trapdoor under that plunged me 2000 feet or so to my demise if I got shot down, but short of that...no difference. Die roll on death I didn't like - nice idea and good to give players the extra choice, but to my taste, results are WAY too arbitrary, making 'fatal' crashes routinely survivable and minor prangs too often fatal.

 

With 'Pilot never dies' OFF works quite cleverly - it puts you in hospital, or as a POW, so you get a time penalty as it were. It's not like other sims, where if you don't feel like letting it end just then, you can just re-fly the mission, which is a lot less realistic. I can choose to accept the penalty and fly on, which I usually do, or decide to call it a day. That's how I like it. 'Pilot never dies' is NOT the same as invincibility, far from it.
