Crash After Takeoff Bug

Recommended Posts

Anyone experiancing AI nose diving after takeoff. Was toying around with a created mission and noticed that B-52s like to nose dive towards the ground a few feet after takeoff. Is this a bug? If so how long has it been?


*Note: I tried messing with the wind speed/direction, loads, and fuel; no avail. What usually happens is that the lighter loaded BUFFs just crash shorter than the heavier ones.

UPDATE: Tried a few other heavies at the large Russian/Bomber transport base, and the B-52 seems to be the only aircraft that does this after takeoff. It does not appear the stall out or loose airspeed after takeoff, instead the AI deliberately nosedives into the end of the runway

I just tried it and it did the same to me. Might be a bug worth mentioning on their forums.

      I've been having this HUD problem on some of the planes I've downloaded. Is any one else having this problem??
      here is the problem--- 
      here is a mod plane with a working HUD---- 
      And to my knowledge all vanilla planes are fine. I have also tried to put other aircraft HUD in to the no-working planes but so far been unsuccessful. 
      P.S. sorry if this is the wrong place to post this. Also I have searched for an answer here and else where before posting.      
      Thanks for any help u can give!!

      I've just got back to SF series after many years and will have to relearn everything.
      So I went and start a new campaign, any campaign, the game crash if I choose 'non' for service markings, is this a known problem?
      I've narrowed it down through trial and error, keeping other settings the same it seems like this one crash the game every time at the campaign name stage.
      Is there a way to fix it?
      I've patched it to 2013 patch and using Win7 64bit

      Hello Masterful SF gurus and Fans!    haha!   I had a question reguarding the enviromentsystem.ini file.   I have Stary's awesome SARCASM 2 installed and its great for clear, broken and scattered flying but I find it to be a little too bright during overcast and inclement weather conditions... I tried myself to no avail but does anyone know the proper values to adjust in the INI to make rainy and overcast days a bit darker?  Thanks a lot!

      Heyo CA!  So I bought the RAZBAM A-1 skyraiders for SF2 and did my best to update them to SF2 standards but the AI does odd thing with them... they attack at like 89 knots almost at a stall and that leads to crashes, and when they do pull off an attack without a crash they then always fly out to exactly 4.5 miles away from the target and turn around to reattack, now in game time thats a heck of a long time in a skyraider at 89 knots haha, As a comparison I have noticed that the third wire skyraiders tend to do close to the same thing... anyone have a fix?

      ​Hey CA!  So I have been playing around with a lot of fun WW2 addons but one thing that I have found that's a little strange is when flying escorts or intercepts on heavy bombers like Flying Fort's or liberators their bomb runs are exceedingly Slllooooowwwww... I just don't think its accurate that a formation of 17's would be Nose high almost at stall speed (like 70knts)  while dropping bombs on targets.  This also makes escort missions VERY LONG as well haha.  This seems to be an issue for any and all SF2 B-17/24's I haven't tried 29's yet.  I love the work done on these great models and not trying to belittle anyone's hard work just trying to make it even better!
