Better/more realistic particles for aircraft hitting the ground
Assigned, WishlistPublic


What we have now is chopper/plane exploding after hitting the ground on high speed. It would look better and would be more realistic if plane/choppers would crash to the ground kicking up ground and dust particles up in the air rather than exploding in the hollywood-style.
At least exploding should happen much more rare.

I propose to use some dust and ground particles along with the debris flying caused by the hit to ground. There could be some fire and smoke - but explosion looks way too unnaturally and exaggerated.

Also when helicopter crash, there could be dust and debris flying just a little bit longer till the engine/rotor completely stops working.

As for destroyed models of aircraft I would propose more detailed predefined ones rather than ones with darkened textures.

In most cases planes don't explode when hitting the ground - fire is caused by ignition of jet fuel.

Neither do helicopters, see this crunch
