is it normal for the helos on the original FA to float in the air when landed the V-22 is probably the worst. also the CH-47 is about the right size i think, but the V-22 is like the size of a C-130. is that another FA screw up. I thought the helos might float because their "damage Box' where missles and bullets hit is bigger than the helo.

Yes he does... What he is referring to is the scale problems with some of the shapes in FA. Some aircraft and ground vehicles and scenery the wrong scale...

Also the V-22 vertical center is misaligned and the shape is actually centered several feet to high making the aircraft landing gear several feet above the ground when landed...

Well I think they may have done it on purpose so the blades clear when the V-22 is 'hover taxing'...

That's interesting... I noticed it, but thought it was only a matter concerned to a testing shape, not more.

yeah CAG that's what i thought because when it is (V-22) taxiing the blades clear the ground. and the Rah-66 although does not apear to have gear looks better when landed. A CH-46 is almost the size of the V-22 rotar and wing body in the real world, but the CH-47 in the game it is tiny, and the CH-47 is almost 14ft (about 4.5meters)longer than the Ch-46.
I also noticed that the objects you see more of are better quality than others. the A-4 and A-7 both have moving edge flaps and no other planes that i saw have them. Also the fuel truck compared to the humvee has better overall quality. and fuel tanks more than the castle. the Nimtz more than the oil rigs. and so on; i understand why, it's just something i noticed.

i did some research on FA the V-22 is about 745ft wide and the CH-47 is about 300ft long Exclamation and the V-22 sits about 30ft off the ground making it about 50ft tall; and by my calculations that would mean it is 502ft long. so if it was to scale with the Carriers which i think are a 1nm (CAG should know) would make the CH-47 594 feet long and the V-22 510ft wide (roughly) Rolling Eyes. LOL. that means everthing "Carrier Scale" is/should be six time as long as in the real world. So that would make a F-14 bigger than a real world AN-225. and the B-52 would be the size of two carriers. this game is messed up Mr. Green

Yes the game has scaling problems, but you must remember that FA is really several different sims combined... and each of these original sims had its own development team and scale settings...

no i didn't know it is multiple sims put together. i thought it was one horribley big mess of a game and that is why it is "special" in its own way.

Duke you one crazy guy!?. you need to read with both eyes open and more than a quarter of your brain working.I am talking about FA not FAF.
Any way im guessing the Kuril, Vladivostok, Vietnam and Ukraine campains are separate.

there is no real way for me to remap all the shapes. but you are right CAG I just kinda rushed through it and lost myself. But you have to admit Duke's post was kinda out there. He's been on this forum longer than i have and i know that FAF is a remap. (this is not in any way meant to offend Duke but.......yeah) so sorry Crying or Very sad
