Just a thought, could we reduce an unfair advantage and make the game more realistic?

Would it be possible to program the game such that when two aircraft that they are both destroyed?

In real life, normally, when two aircraft collide midair, they both are destroyed.

We have too many players that are confusing piloting with BUS DRIVING!

"We have too many players"  Where? This subject has been a dead horse for at least a couple of years.

​Since when are bus drivers known for head on collisions? :amazed:

As WARHOG already stated, this has been tried along with a smattering of other variations over the past 5 years. The problem with using the mechanics you describe is that a pilot who is almost dead in a light fighter could ram a healthy HF or GA and kill them. Does that seem fair? It sure didn't when they tried it, and after many iterations, we were left with the current model which is probably about as good as they can get it.

 

The best way to avoid a RAM is to not go head-on with other planes. I can be flying straight & level in a full-health GA, and a quarter health fighter will try and attack from head-on. The fighter is, of course, disintegrated instantly when we collide, and the fighter pilot will invariably cry, "Rammer" because I didn't turn my healthy, armored GA away from his nearly dead fighter. That fighter pilot is a fool, and any of his/her comments should be disregarded.

:honoring:

The old collision mechanics were too harsh for an arcade game but I feel that the current system is far too arcadey. 

I used to have a handle on life until it broke off.

I think the damage cause in head on collisions should be higher. Maybe not instant kills, but more than it is now. Conversely, the damage from bumping team mates should be reduced. So tired of "friendly" bot heavies flying into my fighter and destroying me from full health.
