S! All

 

JG1 Server is running the Tarnopol map. This is the map for FIF XXII. This is not the plane set that will be used. The planes here were done for other tests.

 

This is to test Horses and wagons as a target instead of vehicles or tanks.

 

Grab a strutter at Ankjzobov, southern Russian base.  At the end of the runway is the standard buildings used for a target. Around the buildings are several wagons and horses. Kill any 4 and you get a target killed message. The server resets in 30 seconds..

 

The test is not so much killing the horses but also how well they can be seen from a distance.

 

 

See what you think.

Sounds cool! What will the planeset be for the next FiF? Also, which side are we flying - Entente or Central?

Thanks,

Tried the mission today. The horse-wagons seemed easier to see from a distance than the trucks we were hunting last session, mainly because of the dark brown color of the horses.

Also, as a side note, I personally thought it was tougher to kill the horse-wagons by strafing. Could be just me though. Bombs however were as effective as usual. :P

Hi Hotlead,

It's still being decided.  But expect earlier aircraft.  This should be decided by next week.
 

Also, which side are we flying - Entente or Central?


This is still being decided too. ;) But more than likely, the sides will switch.

Has it been set in stone if the E.III and S16 won't be in the plane list? I do like my lawn mower!

I wouldn't mind flying Alb D.IIs personally, but the E.III is lots of fun to fly too. The Eindeckers would just have to work in groups or the S.16s could quite possibly have them for lunch. O_O

It's still up in the air.  But the tournament coordinators are meeting next week to discuss the plane-set.  So this should be resolved by the 26th.

Tested the S16 and E.III in SP and they seem pretty well matched. The S16 is only $6 to buy. Would be a good match along with the Halb D.II against the Russian Nieuport 17.

Right now, we're looking at the second week of September. But things could move around.

Should be fun!
