  3. Your right @Snaggle I don't use it in game either, only planning. With "No operation plan survives the first enemy contact" in mind I draw 2 separate lines (one N and one S) from an easy recognizable point like e.g. the city Lens or the river in 0205 and make a mental note of the 2 directions. With that I can always find back my way to the planned home base /friendly airfield. If I have enough time I put the directions in my custom_photo.dds and stick it in the cockpit. Yeah, I know I'll have to fly without my sweetheart.😩
  4. Just a note this is a fine planning tool. Some pilots fly VR and unfortunately using a map outside of the game is impossible, unless I'm missing something which is a possibility.
  5. Let us know if you ever change the file names, Daedallus. Some of them are hard to tell they belong to you.
  6. are those spoke wheels on Dudley's?!!
  7. Agreed. Although it wasn't quite as much of a problem for the uber-Camel to eventually catch up to that D.VII(F?), he practically flew right over us without engaging. Luckily he flew a rectangular pattern and stayed in his sector, so at least we didn't have to chase him all over Hell's half-acre.
  8. Great find, Heinrich! Looks like a fine tool for an ambitious mission planner. 😊
  9. So, I'm doing an Slovakia campaign and I want to, at some point, make American/British columns to appear from the West side of the map. This is easy doable. However, when they die, they will spawn on the East side, as the RUbase is there. So is the solution two bases, make specific dead columns in specific places or have I forgotten something?
  10. S! I really liked the Mauve green upper wing done by Heinrich. Here is a redo for. Maushake, Lee, Vickner, Hotlead, Labroisse, Butzzell and Dudley. New paint made Dudley's plane really fast.No pics for Hotlead and Labroisse. Only change there was blue under wings instead of lozenge. Akso pixs for Genmarkoff Dr1 and Halb. Underside of wings on both planes is mauve and green. ! JG1 AlbatrosD5 Butzzell.zip ! JG1 AlbatrosD5 Dudley.zip ! JG1 AlbatrosD5 Hotlead.zip ! JG1 AlbatrosD5 Labroisse.zip ! JG1 AlbatrosD5 Lee.zip !

  11. Hi Hope these are right, I've never done this before with skins I've cretaed These are the links for my latest (26 Jan 2020) personal skins - Daedallus all painted by me except the Camel which was by Szelljr Abatross https://drive.google.com/open?id=1jpVmU7wtPLcXCr8IqWdSclaxUKchgEVn Dr1 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ulPW58Ra71iQVyV2701NbeS8FaZxuATr/view?usp=sharing Pfalz D3 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CR_oVfR5hCYbFm6OKiOMVmoTuLpMWT3F/view?usp=sharing Camel https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ik8QJJkWYHValPeypzogXjK1JGM7o0xX/view?usp=sharing Se5a https://drive.google.com/file/d/1h_AjRtkVkRhzCVSXPBy6MZpy-IqFvGwW/view?usp=sharing Dolphin https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mIUPRzutfexe7kLJzOxCq2clFZFuNzKI/view?usp=sharing Thx for the work you put in S! Daedallus
  12. I favor 4K skins, with more pixels it is easier to be precise. The idea of skins is recognition and not "Look what I can do with Photoshop". Therefor I agree with Luftritter, I see no reason to have more than 1 skin per A/C in a early and late version. Maybe the early version can be less colorful but still have the typical identification markings and color of that individual pilot.
  13. No problem with finding the airfields, orientation and navigation is part of the fun. Take that away and what fun is left for the recon, trench map and pick-up pilots? They already have an inglorious life to live. Maybe pilots can try to use this: https://il2missionplanner.com/#arras
  14. Yes, but now we do not need to return home for a successful ending of the mission. The spy marker appeared as it should, and the flares, flak track and everything else worked fine. The ''problem'' reported was someone trying to do the mission after it has already been done. Better mission coordination is needed, so as not to waste effort on already ''killed'' targets. The mission in general worked fine for me and for the rest of the J2s I had been flying with. The refuel, yes that was a small problem because it gives you instantly 100% fuel. Great job puting FiF together for FC. Respect!
  15. The spy pick up or General Capture Icons only go away after the package is delivered to a friendly drome. The HQ or all recons must be done Higher than 2 k and lower than 4 k. Not sure what else would do it. You can not circle it. The radius is on 1 k so by the time you get the first message to make a second pass you should be good. It will take several sessions to see how things work and then we can change themπŸ˜‰
  16. Yes. Fastest fill up I ever had.
  17. A plain old goat is not as much of a threat as an AngryGoat πŸ˜…
  18. 2 per person seems more than reasonable to me; you could have an early skin and a late skin for every plane, even though few planes were in service long enough for that to be appropriate. As for the rest, I've stated my opinion elsewhere. S!
  19. One thing that should be addressed hopefully before the official start, is something I forget to mention during the post-session con-flab. When I went to refuel at the south Entente drome, the thing gave me 100% instantly (in my Camel). The thing did not work like before when the refueling process took some time, giving you a progressing reading that allowed you to stop when you reached a reasonable amount of fuel . No idea if it worked like that everywhere for everybody; but I know that the way it worked before was a lot better.
  20. We have been discussing 2K vs 4K skins. I had originally decided to do all skins in 2K. 2K size is approximately 1/4 the size of 4K. My reasoning is that I can't tell much (if any) difference between the two at regular view distance in the game... even when fully zoomed in. As the amount of skins increases, I was afraid that the folders would get very large. My current game skin folder is about 23 GB (with several other squads skins included). I would like to hear what others think. In that vein... we are thinking of restricting a maximum of two individual skins per pilot per plane. Again... thoughts?
  21. @AngryGoat I changed a couple of your skin names as @Luftritter suggested in order to keep with the naming Dicta. Please change them in your files in order to have everyone see them: Changed the "Early" and "Late" DR1s to... ! JG1 FokkerDr1 Goat.dds and ! JG1 FokkerDr1 Goat B.dds. Also changed the lowercase "se5a to uppercase (I don't think it really matters for the game to recognize... just for consistency purposes)... ! JG1 SE5a Goat.dds and changed "Sopwith Camel" to ! JG1 SopCamel Goat.
  22. It was a good turn out. Hope to have more next week. No lag or frame issues, did notice a few dropped players. 'Dromes are just harder to find in general. It's a navigation skill, part of the game AFAIC. I had one contact that did seem to disappear as I zoomed in. Someone said that alt vis was on, that's when I commented. I think it was just more of the normal zoom issues discussed in forums. Spy pick up was a misunderstanding I think, maybe an icon issue. We did the pick up, and he said it was successful. The problem,(I think), is the icon failed to be removed and was tried again by someone else. Just as you said about Hospital icon. Cuban also did the HQ recon, but was shot down while RTB. He did it again, but couldn't get a subtitle on his 2nd or 3rd pass. *edit* Is it possible that the plane that the plane doing a mission like the Hospital or spy has to LAND at a field before the icon is removed? Did anyone get hit by flak? We had 1 or 2 damaged by ground fire but no casualties that I know of. Enemy Ace was not very aggressive. Had to get REAL close before he would engage. (and that aint easy when tryin to catch a Spad w/ Dr1's & PD3's) Some players,(including me), are a bit hazy on some of the objectives, we shall have to remedy that ourselves. Flyin Central isn't going to be very easy in this one!πŸ˜‰
  23. S! All Very nice turn out. Some good fights right up to the end. Did anyone have a serious lag or frame rate issue? Was there a problem in finding a friendly Aerodrome? Do they need any additional features? Maybe a Balloon? Remember , if you can see it so can the enemy. Alternate visibility was not on. Were there problems? Problem reported with Spy Pick up marker. Still looking at that. Entente Hospital marker did not deactivate when mission complete. Will be locking load outs so people do not have to worry about having the wrong load out. Next week we start killing each other for real !
  24. Last week
  25. You're still good to go. Red Team with JG1.
