Random bug, the white trailing sight in the bombsite view of bombers is not there sometimes.  This has happened to me on several occasions only on the first plane, after I die and respawn the bug goes away.  this makes is impossible to bomb from altitude.

Got to drop the bombs by instinct.

 


What we say to death?

Yep, happens quite frequently even ... both the ring in the bombsight and the aiming circle on GA and MR with bombs.

Been around for months ; did anyone ever report it officially (and not just in bug forum topics) ??

Hi,

 

What is altitude when this happens? If the altitude is too low it is OK for bombsight to disappear as bombers aircraft is encouraged to fly on high altitude. 

 

I would greatly appreciate it if you could send me a replay with this situation.

 

Thank you!

Also happens at high alt ...

I know that the circle disappears when you are very low, it just shifts out of view at the top of the bombsight. And like I said, the aiming circle also disappears for GA and MR in a shallow dive to drop bombs.

 

I'll see if I can fly tonight (we're having a heatwave in Europe my PC room is very hot) and make a screenshot.

At high alt as well? I see. Then probably something can be wrong. It would be great if we could get a replay or at least screenshots. 

 

I will be waiting! Thank you in advance.

first is normal circle that turns yellow when to drop

second is no circle at all !

third is normal crossed circle (no bombs) - bit hard to see (enlarge with ctrl +)

I've got replays but for some reason I can not switch to bomb-sight in replay ??

Unfortunately, the given information was not enough to reproduce this situation. However now we are getting more reports concerning bombsight and hopefully the problem will be addressed soon.

replays won’t do you any good because of how the replays work you don’t see the pilots view through the bombsite.  

 

I suggest making the trailing site on a On/Off toggle so we can reenable it if it turns off for some reason.

Problem still occurs about half of the battles I start as a bomber ... only solution is to go very low and bomb on visual.
