    Hi guys! What do you mind to join Adler Legion in small event in ROF this Friday? Do you miss WWI heavy bombers and adequate DM? In short, the event is dedicated to Gothas and their historic raids on cities in England. Several Gothas take off from the mainland and fly to Dover to bomb strategically important targets such as the port infrastructure, railway station, etc. The port is protected by small Entente fighter forces and flaks. We flew this event in December 2017 and it was quite interesting. Having the stupid situation with DM in the Flying Circus, all our pilots, without exception, jumped back into the ROF and decided to gather in such chamber event. And we invite you to join us and we will be glad if you do. You can fly for either side, no restrictions. In general, the more Gothas we have, the better. By this link you can see screenshots from that flight in 2017 - https://riseofflight.ru/forum/topic/45472-event-london-gudbaj/?p=635887 . Despite Germany's superior forces, the Gothas couldn't destroy all the targets in two flights. Dover was protected by few Hanriots HD.2 with assistance of several AI Sopwith Pups. At the moment, we're discussing options for the Entente fighters and the Gothas' cover fighters (if any). Anyway, this will depend on the number of participants. The flight will take place on Friday this week. At 19:00 Zulu - briefing, at 19:30 - start. Treat this event as a cozy, interesting flight in the company of old friends in an old favourite game - no any serious requirements or hard trainings for that. What do you think? S! Baron *more details soon

    BoX update out !!!

    Did you expect some? The improvements are replacing the alternative visibility server setting. What did change is that you can set the MSAA to 8x. Looks nice but you will get a fps hit. For me it went from 144 to 130-135 fps. As for visibility I can see on the J5 Flugpark from Beugnatre a dogfight going on over Arras. Not bad I think. The aircraft are more visible over the front and dont blend with the lanscape textures that much.

    @Butzzell @Heinrich @Dudley Thanks guys for the paticipating in our small cozy event! Here is small gift for you for your coming Guys flew for Entente have received their own awards. Maybe this also helps to attract another pilots of your squad to join the next round. I remind it will be on Friday this week, same time at 19:00 GMT. There will be same massive Gotha flight to an English town to bomb strategic targets there. An Entente defence is included This time, there will be another town, more targets to bomb and another weather conditions. Hope see so many of you as possible! Everybody welcome for any side!

    Posted on SCG forum: Please accept my condolences also to all of SCG, Diana, Joe's family and all who knew him. So very sad to lose another compatriot in this hobby that has so many rewards beyond the gaming. Many of us are at that certain age that it's comforting to know that we will be remembered by our friends in the community upon our taking that last flight.Blue skies Joe!

    @Firefly Seeing as you mentioned it I thought I'd check out Warsaw from the airfield you listed. How does this look for a comparisson? Perhaps not quite the perfect position for a 1-1 comparisson but close enough I'd wager. This isn't a "hand crafted" location either, the building/tree placement is purely auto-gen based off of satellite imagery.

    Greetings JG1, just wanted to invite you guys to a mission. Sunday 2:30 PM Eastern Time This mission will be an attempt to recreate a defensive hold against an American attack on our perimeter located north of Aachen. Currently I'm designing the mission with the hopes that we would have enough air combat interest to allow for player vs player in the air, however in the event that is not possible the player element will be Luftwaffe only, assisting our panzers in holding the line and launching a counter attack. The battlefield area is limited in this one, so the flying would be fairly concentrated over a particular sector of the map. There will be flak to ward off ground attacks on artillery and entrenched locations, so the flying can get dicey in the combat area. Let me know if you have any interest in joining us so I can plan the mission around the numbers I might have to work with. More to come as I work on this one. I'll get back with you on the plane set, but I think we might go with Panther on the tanks, against AI Shermans, since the AI has been acting up on some of the other tank sets. If you guys prefer MkIVs let me know. It's just that they haven't been holding up very well. Thanks, Neun

    Counter Attack on Aachen

    Better know as the Second Battle of Aachen was an attempt by the Germans to retake the city of Aachen after it had fallen around mid October 1944. For purposes of our mission, we will be using the 506th Heavy Panzer Battalion to spearhead an assault NE of the city. We will be facing the 2nd Armored Division and the 745th Tank Battalion along with the 26th Infantry Division who will be positioned in a defensive posture and poised to hold at all cost. This is going to be a tough mission and make no mistake, the enemy AI in this mission can make you toast in a heartbeat. We will have our Luftwaffe overhead to deal with American fighters and Jabo aircraft. Those damn P47's will be out on the prowl. Positioned throughout the countryside will be plenty of American AT along with the long ranged 155mm field guns. In addition, our Luftwaffe will be ground pounding defensive positions in our path. And of course....there will be plenty of American armor to deal with as usual. We invite JG1 members to come on in for the fun, 8/30/20 at 1430 hrs, EST. You can either fly Luftwaffe or grab a Tiger or a Panther if you prefer. Our SCG unit will be using Tigers however, they last longer...and heck we are a Heavy Panzer Regiment. Our server always starts with SCG TS=comms.simulatedcombatgroup.com pw= enjoy We have SRS Radio working, but will not be using it for this event. Salute, Neun

    Counter Attack on Aachen

    FYI, I had such a blast yesterday. I love the joint missions; it is incredible to see the ground troups advance and do their thing from the air. Even better when there is actually some useful complementary action between the air and the ground troups. Also, it was great flying with the SCG pilots who were most courteous and hospitable. We had some great moments yesterday and I'm looking forward to repeating the experience when there will be another occasion to do so (soon?).

    Thrustmaster MFD - Cube Sim Project

    Kameraden, I've been wanting to have proper functioning MFD's for Falcon BMS and DCS for awhile now, I had spec'd out the components and was looking to 3D print the parts and build from scratch. Recently found the Cube Sim folks and turns out the product was cheaper than the parts I was purchasing. Here's a little bit of the work I'm doing to get these going, I'm using the MonsterTech MFD mounts. I will have to do some milling to open up the vent fan and mounting cutouts on the back. It is possible that I could mount a 3rd one for the F/A-18 setup, since I have the grip as well now. Unpacking after arrival: Initial setup: Protective cover still in place: Socks: Both bad boys: Test install with keyboard shelf (super handy): More to come.... S!

    Klaiber's USB woes

    Here is my tale of woe. So, wanting to still have the use of the front USB connections, I called a PC repair place today that was recommended to me by a co-worker. They said they knew what was wrong and that I should come in with the PC. So, I took personal time from work, and headed out there. I got to the shop. They looked at the front panel, and then said "We don't do in-house repair work here. We can't help you." The guy was nice, and I was feeling generous. So I thanked him (despite the fact that I drove out there with a 50lbs tower, and took off work for something that they mislead me on, but whatever. Water under the bridge.) So, I called a second place that had decent reviews on yelp, and asked them if they could fix the front USB ports for me. Over the phone, they said yes, and to bring it in. Fantastic! So, I get there and re-explained what's going on. The guy at the counter says they'd "have to run a diagnostic on the computer" which would take 3-days and cost $30.00. I said, you don't need a diagnostic. I just told you what's wrong. He said it's company policy. 🤡 He also says that they can't / won't restore functionality to the front USB ports. "That's not what we do." I said "You told me on the phone that you could fix the front ports" He said, "Well, we can disable the USB ports for you. Then the PC will start." Me - that's not what I asked you on the phone. He says "That's all we can do, and it would cost you $130.00." For fuck's sake. He then says "And in order to make sure everything is running correctly, we'll need your PC's password.'" Even though I'm telling you what the issue is and it has nothing to do with my OS or Hard-drive? Then I read in the fine print of their form where it says that they can "delete the hard drive at any time without asking permission." I left and took my computer back home. Once home, I disconnected the USB wire to the motherboard (5 seconds, disabling the front ports). The ones in the back still work, because they're attached to the motherboard. I then charged myself $160.00, which I paid myself because I earned it. And using my money I bought a 16 port 3.0 hub from Amazon which should come Friday. PC repair shops are the absolutely freaking worst... 😡 And, yes, I'm back up and running.

    Klaiber's USB woes

    In case your repairs don't work, there's always the option of using the Russian approach to problem solving. Do note that the film depiction isn't entirely accurate, as the real-life procedure involves the use of magical incantations (i.e. an unbroken chain of Slavic profanity for the duration of the process) for maximum effect. I used this technique many times and I'd be happy to give you some pointers. I'd recommend starting with a hammer. On a more serious note, good luck with those repairs.

    This game is AMAZING. There is a location icon for Los Gatos, CA, that starts you right next to my highschool and they must have done a custom job because the game can't actually be good enough to do this on its own...can it? The screenshot is of my highschool and it is startlingly accurate. The building layout is exact, you can see the team logo on the football field and even the new solar panels in the parking lot (notice the ones pointing the wrong direction lol). My parents cul-de-sac looks exact (except for the trees) down to the white gazebo in my neighbor's backyard. The nearby strip mall is also almost exact. The game can't be that good, right? Maybe it has to do with the fidelity of the satellite imagery, and the SF Bay Area has been extensively captured in high res. So I tried going somewhere I knew, but wouldn't be as high res and...that house on the corner there is my grandparents house. I know most buildings are supposedly generic but...that's startlingly close. Flight feels good, too! Haven't tried setting up hairy weather conditions, but the 152 and 172 handle a lot like I remember. So far the only downside is that my crappy internet connection can only stream data live off peak hours. So I have to pre-download areas if I want to fly any time other than 11pm onward.

And no, it's not historic... it's the Bone Crusher skin! P47-D28 Red nose Bone Crusher skin: v_!_JG1_P47D28_GenMarkof.dds ---------------------- P47-D28 Red nose Bone Crusher 2 skin: v_!_JG1_P47D28_GenMarkof_2.dds Cheers, GenMarkof AAR on our last Sunday missions (on the Finnish Virtualpilots server): 1st mission We took off from Gelendzhik-1 AF in the South near the Coast with 2 x P47 D28 (with each 2 x 500 pound bombs). To make our way to our target (rear Fuel Depot), we took a safer path near the Coast. After reaching our target in sector 0815 tac 5, our flight leader (AngryGoat) gave us the sign to dive down and bomb the German rear Fuel Depot. All 4 x 500 pounds bombs hit the target and we made our way back to the Coast to RTB and make our way to our landing AF 1419 tac 8. -------------- 2nd mission We took off again from Gelendzhik-1 AF in the South near the Coast with 1 x P47 D28 and 1 x P47 D22 (with each 2 x 500 pound bombs). To make our way to our target (Front Panzer Base), we took a safer path near the Coast. After reaching our target in sector 0916, our flight leader (AngryGoat) saw a Stuka passing just over our flight... so he dropped his bombs and went after the Stuka... and got some real good shots on him... I did the same, but forgot to drop my bombs... I did get a few shots on the Stuka before my plane got fire... At that time, I jumped out of the plane and made my way down near the enemy Panzer Base. The flight lead was able to make is way back home, with some minor holes in is P47 D22 wings! Note: we are looking to get 2 more pilots on Sunday Night... if you would like to fly the P47 D28 or D22... you are more then welcome to join!

    ROF v. FC

    With the talk about the Gotha scenario, I went back and made sure that my ROF installation still works and flew a few missions. Is it my imagination or is the AI in ROF way better than the AI in FC? Sure seemed that way last night (not that they killed me, they just took more work 😁) I know the sounds and visuals are much better in FC, but I sure do miss those old planes.

    Hi, I'm applying for membership in 2.JS/JG-1 "Fritz Schmenkel". What is your Timezone? I'm from Germany, so Central European Time (CET) Do you have a joystick or HOTAS? TM Warthog stick and throttle Do you have TeamSpeak installed, as well as a working microphone? Yes Do you have TrackIR, or a FreeTrack system for view control? Yes, TrackIR What sims are you currently flying? Currently only DCS, before I also used P3D and XP11 alongside, and I'll probably use MSFS soon. How did you hear about JG1? On the ED forum, got in touch with "Jonne" a few months ago about your recruitment call there Is there anything else that you'd like us to know? I have most DCS modules (except for I-16, JF-17, P-47 and Channel map) I spent much time in the F-5E and the UH-1, currently I focus on Su-25 and MiG-29A (because I didn't have much time lately and wanted to keep things simple) I'm interested in Cold War scenarios and older flying hardware, SPAMRAAM, -9x and the like are a turn-off for me I have a RL, non-professional flying background of 500hrs so far I have these severe stutters with the MiG-21 radar on and will not revert back my drivers, so I can only fly the MiG-21 when Magnitude comes up with a solution I plan to become proficient on the L-39 first to somewhat re-enact pilot training in the LSK/LV, then MiG-15 and -19

    Exactly correct, to get a 172 or 152 to spin you must hold it in the spin. The moment you release the controls it will come out. Remember the washout in the wingtip incidence... that was a BIG deal when the plane was produced early on. Spin training was something we all thought SHOULD be taught, just in and of itself.... but it was rare 50 years ago and non-existent now.

    I have really enjoyed reading this thread and knowing you guys are having so much fun with it. Hey do me a favor and let me know if you find something for a Phenom 100 or 300 (EMB-500, EMB-505) because it is really handy for clients that need to spend some time being familiar with the jet. I have been recommending low time guys to follow this path (they can afford the jet, the sim should be low cost) and it really does help them procedurally and general familiarization. We are seeing guys come through with 500 hours total time getting typed in the jet.... wow......

    Painfully accurate. I do honestly wonder what rock home buyers are under when they buy property along the flightpath of a major airport or military installation then complain about said activity. The aircraft were flying overheard long before you arrived to the area, yet now you feel as if you have the moral authority to complain about it? Le sigh... In relation to the trees. Asobo have said they're already working on improving the AI for tree placement (and the types of trees it renders). So I would perhaps expect things to improve as they gather feedback from a wider audiance. It would seem that they have quite a bit in the pipeline yet, including rotary aircraft. I do wonder if they released this a little too early, perhaps under pressure from Microsoft to release prior to the new console launches. Maybe in the hope it would garner more interest in the XBSX.

    Your parents have a fine taste in cars, I learned to drive at a ripe old age of 13 in my mum's Legacy Outback of a similar vintage and in that exact shade of dark green. I'd love to check out my neighbourhood (directly to the south of the Warsaw Babice airport aka EPBC) from the air. My parents' home is in that partly wooded area of pentagonal shape right behind the airfield. The forest in the upper right corner is where I walk my dog on weekends. Note how one of the old runways was turned into a public road. As a side note, EPBC (now a civilian airport reserved for general aviation and sailplanes) was once home to Poland's first tactical jets (Yak-17s and 23s). Sadly the airport's days are numbered, as the local councillors keep complaining about the planes flying over their heads... Bloody fools. I bet they can't wait to get their hands on prime real estate for housing development...

    Have you gents had much chance to do some flying? I'm hooked, been flying all over the place. Been doing the Yosemite bush challenge, flying VFR in the Cub which was very gratifying. No radios, no GPS. Just you in the most basic aircraft you've ever set eyes on... and a MAP. Completed the first leg with no issues, great fun! Note: I'm flying on primarily "high" settings, with a few "ultra" for things like volumetric clouds at 1080p resolution. Getting upwards of 75-80FPS here. Can recommend flying out of Innsbruck to Fusen, via the Neuschwanstein castle. I visited Fusen a couple years back with my dad on our motorcycles, the place looks spot on. Could even spot the location of the restaurant we had some amazing salmon before heading back! Really spectacular terrain flying through the alps. If you do the flight in the Icon A5 you can also make a water landing on the lake just next to the town. Flying out of Reykjavik was pretty spetacular too, the tonal variations in the terrain over there are crazy good looking. Oh, and here's my house! We've got a couple of trees by the house, but the AI really went overboard here lol. Fun fact, when we moved here in 1996, there was part of a BAC Lightning fuselage in the field to the right of the house. I'm afraid for my wallet, I feel like I'm about to dive down a rabbit hole with an infinite number of terrain/scenery and aircraft packs soon to start releasing. Already bought the ORBX pack for Innsbruck airport and the city itself, was tempted to get another but have to restrain myself for the time being!
