    What is your Timezone? - CET (Germany) Do you have a joystick or HOTAS? - VKB Gunfighter Mk.II MCG / X-52 Pro Throttle Do you have TeamSpeak installed, as well as a working microphone? - No TeamSpeak (but shouldn't be a problem to install) and yes, I have a microphone. Do you have TrackIR, or a FreeTrack system for view control? - TrackIR 4 What sims are you currently flying? - Mostly DCS L-39, once MiG-21, sometimes MiG-15 and Yak-52 How did you hear about JG1? - ED forums Is there anything else that you'd like us to know? - Based in Eastern Germany, I'm highly interested in the history, planes and tactics of our former air force. I used to fly the MiG-21 once (about 500 flight hours) but at the moment I'm flying the L-39 (a lot) and the Yak-52 (a little). Flight dynamics, flight and control techniques and navigation tasks are just as interesting to me as weapons delivery. If I have the time, I try to read and learn a lot out of historic original documents, to get to know how the "ancestors" have done it... Thanks for reading

    FIF is going in new sim, some will gone, some will come. Its too early to have a decision about it. But i can say exactly the we have to use ROF core in FIF.

    Love is a delicate thing. So too are side balances in campaigns. See how things sort out this time. Everyone will understand that adjustments may need to be made later. I seem to recall that the side swapping only came into being in response to the RoF FM/DM changes being perceived as making the plane sets very inequitable. Now with FC (and the resurrection of allied Entente players and new units due to the much improved and more equitable plane sets in FC compared to RoF) it may even be possible to consider at some point in the future the possibility to going back to Central vs Entente to build each sides familiarity flying with long lost brothers and sisters (could still swap sides of too many people would still want to continue doing that).

    FIF 2020 Winter Skinpack

    I'm planning on compiling a skinpack for the upcoming Winter 2020 FIF. This will be the first time for FIF on Flying Circus. The skinpack will be similar to what I did for J5's Black September and will be a zip file with all skins in their proper folders. In fact, those who have already submitted their skins to Black September need not submit skins unless there have been changes since then. This is purely voluntary. Custom skins are not required to participate. (I would encourage everyone to install them though... you DO want to be able to see who you are shooting down... don't you? šŸ˜ˆ). Please submit links to your skins before Tues Jan 28. The pack will be posted with the link on this OP on Thurs Jan 30. Please see the submission rules here: FIF 2020 SKIN PACK (29 January 2020) UPDATED: Full Skinpack is updated and zipped. Download here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/pfy1nmgxfcv3y41/AACE82augCfpOXhCE4hZ-rzBa?dl=0 This is Flying Circus FIF Winter (V2). There were some mistakes and omissions in the original file. If you haven't yet installed the original file Flying Circus FIF Winter just download and install this one. Hopefully all is fixed šŸ™„. Sadly... another error. There is a "data" file within the main "data" file. If you installed as is into the game folder, move the secondary "data" into your main game folder and allow overwrite. The Flying Circus FIF Winter (V2) has been fixed but probably too late for today's FIF. If you did install the original file, you don't have to do it all over... download and install Flying Circus FIF Winter Patch(1). Download here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/66c3reqjqpt82np/AAAwVvGuvqfcb6Ui3-q81Jcra?dl=0 Allow overwrite. There were SPAD skins in the Camel folder for 28th Aero Squadron, 93d Aero Squadron, 103d Aero Squadron and 213th Aero Squadron, as well as z 3PG. Please delete them. Also, please delete the skin file called ! JG1 FokkerDr1 Luftritter B from the FokkerDr1 folder (note the "B" on the end. Do not delete the main file that has no "B" on the end). Both are in a zip file with the architecture: data\graphics\skins\*with the individual plane folders* You should be able to unzip it into your IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad game folder and it will auto populate. However, I would suggest unzipping it into a temp folder first just to check and if everything looks good then cut and paste the complete data folder to your IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad game folder. Allow overwrite since many of the files have the same name as prior skins but have been changed. Let me know of any additional mistakes or issues šŸ˜. Salute!

    FC V2? Maybe and maybe not

    Continually flooding J5's server, even having it within the top 3-5 online servers is doing wonders for recognition. Our own pilots, that currently only fly WWII, are noticing and becoming interested in FC. If that's on our guys, I bet it's bringing in interest for random online players, as well. It is a fine point regarding the offline concentration of purchases. If we go by online players, alone, they've sold a couple hundred copies of their game...

    2K vs 4K and Multiple skins

    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?

    S! All Locking weapon mods. Sorry, Kinda new at some of these features. In the past we have had "Honor rules" in which we ask people not to take certain load outs or weapons mods. With FC, the game can take care of this. It has taken me a while to figure out but available weapon mods are locked and you still get to pick what you want instead of being forced on you. Banned weapons, like the Becker are not available. This should work as the player expects. You pick what you want. Two seater pilots can pick the bomb load that fits them best. Please recheck the server and see if this is what you expect or if changes still need to be made.

    Second Flight: After a couple shots and a quick smoke. it was back in the air. still determined to find the squadron... I headed towards the front. there they were. circling over cappy. I noticed tracers a little north of the field. I went to investigate knowing friends were close. there was a dogfight down low and that's when I noticed the 2 seater. I jumped down on him and we began tumbling and turning to shred each other apart with bullets. that's when the calvary arrived. Klai and Brit swirling down from above the Bristol was doomed. Like a pack of Hyenas we take turns tearing chunks out of him. eventually we were done playing and Britchot drove the last nail into the flying coffin. beware the pack of Dreideckers

    First flight: took off lone wolf looking for the squadron... when I noticed our balloon being attacked. both observers parachuted out and I gave pursuit to the SE5A. He noticed me coming in and turned for a head on attack. A bullet grazed me and I was stunned for a second. when I came to my senses I noticed him slightly under trying to get his sights on me. I kicked the rudder and went on the offence. I drilled enough bullets into his machine where it's powerplant finally gave out. Saving my ammo, I leave him to glide to the ground. with my impaired vision I did not notice the danger lurking above! another SE5A circling above watching everything play out. He rolled his wing over and began to dive on me with vengeance. By luck I noticed our flak had not stopped. at the last second I glanced up to see the fighter with his fangs out. instinctively I pulled the triplane into a sharp climbing turn to throw off his attack. the SE5A pulled up to correct his path and the G force RIPPED the top wing right off! causing him to become a spiraling dart. Now low on ammo and still weary about another attacker... I head for base. Gave the boys a thumbs up to let them know i'm a little banged up but alright... and to line up a round of shots

    FC V2? Maybe and maybe not

    Yeah, to me it seems like a no-brainer to make an offline career. You have the ROF version as a template and Pat Wilson's dynamic campaign as a possible resource. You make the expense because it expands your brand. And then, add aircraft slowly. We don't need a new map right now. I think half the reason sales of FC might be slow is because people see it as a moonlighting project by the developer that takes away from the "real sim". That's of course wrong. But it's on 777 and 1C to prove them wrong, both through PR and investment. If they're not willing to make a financial commitment to support the product they've already financially committed to, then the results are on them. My only hope is that FIF, Bloody April and Black September are able to help jump start interest.

    ALL: Just wanted to call your attention to this post concerning the main JG1 FiF skin pack: If you overwrite your existing files with the skin pack files, it's possible you'll lose correct, current updated versions of my files. If that happens, you can correct it by downloading the updated versions of the problem files in that post. If you're at any point confused, you can always get the most updated and correct files for ALL of my skins HERE You can't go wrong by overwriting whatever you have with what's contained in that download. Apologies for the confusion, many thanks for your indulgence. S!

    5 Staffel Painting updated

    Before you start updating go for colors found on A/C and in the correct time period as used on the Western Front, even better as used by JG1. No East Front markings and no winter camouflage as this was not used in the West. Maybe better to wait with all the work it will take because we working on a Default/Basic/Standard skin per A/C. Upon that skin artists can drop their personal identification. I know how much time it takes to create a correct skin and I would hate that you have done all work for nothing.

    And now for something completely different šŸ˜ U-2VS Fictional German Skin. A lot of hard work went into this one, I hope you'll take a look. Could be personalized with this as a basis. I was thinking of adding a stork-carrying-a-baby emblem, keeping it simple. One minor point of failure was that I couldn't find a way to make the spinning prop not green. I swear there is nothing on that file that changes that. But I stand to be corrected by more experienced experts. Enjoy! U-2VS Fictional German Skin Entente skin to follow if there's any interest....

    After a couple more weeks of struggle I'm beginning to get a handle on Blender. It's not totally accurate since I was unable to find good blueprints for the gun installation (and figuring out how to model the intricacies of the various individual parts is yet a bit beyond my ken šŸ˜Ø) but still, I'm pretty pleased with the results and think it will work to give the illusion that I'm looking for. My intent is to do some "art" pieces using BOx screenshots melded with 3D modeling to pay respect to the ground crews with the internals exposed. They (we) don't get the recognition that the pilots normally do. After more tweaks to the guns, the next project is the engine...

    MSFS 2020 Discussion

    Who else is excited for MSFS 2020? The videos look insane...and it turns out that those views are too good to be true on an offline machine. From what I've read, MSFS2020 will require streaming data to fully function, in excess of 25Mbps. This would be okay news except that I live in the country and have a 4G cellphone connect that tops out at 6 Mbps. Will, I be able to fly MSFS2020? I dunno! But it will suck if I cant. I would expect Microsoft to have preload options but who knows. I know a lot of you are dedicated combat pilots with less interest in Civ flight. What do y'all think about this?

    FiF Winter 2020

    S! All We had some really great fights as shown by Daedallus in the video he posted. There were 59 players on the server at the same time. The server was running an SPS that bounced between 49.9 and 50.1. The tick delay was 11.2. There was a problem in the Spy pick up mission. The practice server is up with three Central airfields in the rear of Entente territory. They are air start so people can quickly do specialty missions. If you want to restart the mission on the server you kill the balloon at the two seater base. When the server restarts the mission it takes almost 2 minutes to go through the target selection process. Wait a couple of minutes before spawning in. Please remember that the special missions require the use of the plane named for that mission. An HQ recon can not do a Trench Map recon mission. We dearly miss the RoF recon program done by AnKor. FiF uses a limited plane set. The purpose is to make people remember that their life and plane are special. The overall goal is to have fun flying. Red team ran out of scout planes. The main reason for this is that they got shot down. Curse you Blue team! The other problem is that people are surviving crashes much easier than in RoF. In the past many people that were shot down died. Also as mentioned above we have more players in the session. It may take some time to figure out the appropriate number of planes. For now we want to keep people flying that can fly. The plane availability is being increased by 6 planes for each side. We will see how this goes.

    If it fits more for Jasta 10 to have no checkers on the tail, then let's do that. Thanks for the advice. If there isn't one, a checkered line on the bottom of the lower wing would be good too for identification. A period appropriate Taxi (carriage?) emblem would be great, even if my checker stripes might be a bit before their time. Perhaps my exploits in the air inspire NYC taxis. I like the "Public Hack" one. Maybe polish the metal a bit in photoshop so that the lettering stands out brightly. If possible change the number to "10" for J 10.
