Strange under 100kg bombs behaving
« on: March 17, 2013, 11:20:52 AM »

Hi,

I hope I'm writing this strange subject on right place. Actually when I drop bombs from some 10-20 to 50 kg of weight on ground targets like troops, vehicle columns etc. They explode only if bomb hits target right in a middle of it, in center other words, but if they fell 1 cm near target for example, nothing happens, just like I drop them in water, here is a picture, my opinion is that should be fixed cause I doubt it's normal and real...

Though in some situations it is more realistic that way, I would prefer to see a little less difference between the two...

Laufer, this is actually the section for discussion of new WIP plane FM's, not for other existing problems with existing planes.
it's no problem, i will move it soon.
in future, such questions are best asked in the Tech Help: Using Mods section. ;)
