Fire effect on water?!

Postby Frankie_WC » Sat 27 Apr 2013 11:55

Hi there,

Just wanna say that I pre-order this game on steam and have been playing the beta since. I am absolutely loving it.

I was just playing around with units from each nation today to get a feel of them. I was absolutely stunned by the beautiful fire effects in the game. And I came across the idea of dropping a napalm bomb on the sea, then this is what comes out of it

I mean burning fire effect on sea probably won't affect the gameplay but I just thought that this game is simply beautiful and I just don't want to see this kind of unrealistic thing happen in game

Does this bother anyone else too?

Yes, this has already been around in WEE, not sure it'll be improved...

I'm not totally sure but wouldn't napalm actually float and burn on water?

They do. But even the HE shell from arty or airplane can set up a nice campfire on water in ALB, which is impossible IRL. :(

Go ahead, try it. And bring evidence that it cant be done in real life.

NAPALM is a gel that floats, also the bombs explode in mid air. So, the game got it right. :roll:

Guess not since explosive material used in shells consumes immediatly after the ignition, whereas napalm (which is fuel) doesn't.

Makes sense for napalm, I should think. But if HE shells can start water fires that ought to be fixed.
