  1. S! Goat. That goat is very intimidating. I really like what you did on the wheels. Move the goat forward and make the Schwaben guys bigger with more color?
  2. Will leave black stripe off of future planes. That will make room for a larger skull
  3. S! I see your point. The black band does look more like Jasta 18 than Jasta 11. Looks like Jasta 18 is an adaptation of the basic J II . Jasta 18 was stationed in the Verdun region so they knew they would not confuse one another with a Jasta 11 plane. They were mistaken for Jasta 11 by Rickenbacker. I was going to leave the fuselage stock but the contrast with the white looked stronger. The fuselage is not all white. I did the rear fuselage as black to have it blend in with the tail. I really like the Vertical stab on the PD3. Originally I had more dirt over th
  4. The map is really a Quake map for fast combat over a particular area. There is a lot from RoF that has not been transferred to FC.
  5. S! All I was working up some skins for Genmarkof. Pattern is the same on all planes. Underside of wings is green, brown, purple. It is a little dark in these pictures. Zip files are proper name structure. You can download here and unzip into actual skin folder. ! JG1 AlbatrosD5 Genmarkof.zip ! JG1 FokkerD7 GenMarkof.zip ! JG1 FokkerD7F GenMarkof.zip !

  6. The area is a Blister covering a generator for the radio...... if you have a radio. Not all Halbs had the radio and so it is missing in many photos from the period. The game takes this into account. If you load the radio in the game you get: The blister is hiding in the cowling area where there would be a cut out for the engine. You can find it when you turn on the wire frame:

    S! Oorpii, There is a parser for FC. It is the same parser used for all IL2 GB games. The JG1 stats page is here. For the next two months the JG1 server will be running FC. Occasionally it will run an IL2 mission for testing. At this point we have only two FC missions running. Hope to add more in a week or so.
  8. There looks like a bit of Kent on the Normandy map.
  9. That is a picture of the factory where there will be tanks. The thing is that the factory shape is different than the factory that you bomb.
  10. S! All Saturday December 7 we will be changing from Midway to Pearl Harbor. Ooops that is for next year after PTO comes out. This will be the last FiF for this year. Blue team is Entente and Red team is Central. It will be the even map. After FiF the server will be changed to a preview of FiF for FC. There will be no 15 minute wait before first takeoff, no death penalty and unlimited scout planes. South part of the map has the closest airfields to the front. There are a few changes some are visual and some are game mechanics.
  11. Wow. So nice to hear good news. Big CONGRATZ !
  12. S! All We had a mission with no big disco dump. We still do not know what caused the discos. We will run the same mission on December 7. Even map. Blue team will be Entente and Red team will be Central. This will be the final mission for this campaign. Sorry we have had these problems. FiF is in transition to Flying Circus. For those that want to see a preview, after the Dec 7th session of FiF the server will be changed over to an FiF Flying Circus mission. It will take about 10 minutes to change it over. More about this next week.
  13. Mods are controlled in two ways, You need the mod placed in your mods folder and you use JSME to activate the mod. Then you turn on mods in the settings on the launcher.
  14. Still mods off for now till the new fields get fully tested. If we can not get rid of the soggy ground, most tournaments will probably go mods on.
  15. We are at a fork in the road. Stay the course with what we have or go to mods on for new maps. Flashy showed me how to place new aerodromes with solid ground. This allows for new fields in the north part of Arras map. It also allows for FiF missions like Spy, general capture and Prison Rescue. On all maps I have placed machine guns in trenches. This is not a solid line but groups with spaces in between. WW II ships replaced with WW I river barges. They do not shoot and are only good for bomber practice. Trains are WW I with an single AAA car at the end. Car does not shoot but lo
  16. S! All The Admins have not been able to find why we have the disconnect from game server. The game server has not changed. The server files have not changed. We are running the same mission we did in phase A. Only the planes and some subtitles have been changed. We run the server for FC Thursday night flyin. We often have thirty or more people online and we do not see the disconnect error. Plan moving forward: November 23 at the usual time we will run Session 2. Red team is Entente, Blue team is Central. At least targets will be in new places. IF, big IF this ses
  17. Roads are OK if u stay on them.
  18. You have a less than 50 percent chance of landing without crashing, Even if you land you have a good chance of damaging the plane. If you do manage a safe landing you still have a large chance of damaging it or crashing trying to take off again. The soggy ground is more like a programmer saying "Look what we can do." Wonderful but is it needed ore useful? Nobody has yet mentioned any benefit to soggy ground.
  19. S! All, FC has several problems with the new objects. Many do not work as they did in RoF. One of the greatest hindrances is the soggy ground. It prevents map makers from placing additional airfields on the map. If you spawn in now, your wheels are all bogged down. It also means we loose missions that require a plane to land behind enemy lines such as the Spy, General Capture and Prisoner rescue missions from FiF. I posted a poll on the IL2 forums. Please vote.
  20. S! All Admins have looked over the rules and the rules say the score stands as is. The result is that the admins have thrown out the rules and rightly so. Session 1 has been scrubbed from the records. Session 1 will be re-flown on the next regular scheduled time. The massive disco due to unknown causes was too much to to accept. The event is designed around fair play. The missions on each side are not the same and many missions require special planes. The loss of these planes and the time limit of the session resulted in a completely unacceptable situation. Special n
  21. S! All Not sure what happened with the massive game server connection lost event. The server did not go down and was not affected. There was a lot of confusion. People were caught off guard about what to do. FiF Administrators are looking things over and will have some decision in a few days. Definition of few: More than 1, less than 6.
  22. S! Practice server is up and will stay up all week.
  23. S! All Congratz to Blue team in a hard fought win for Phase A. We had some great fights. It was a real nail biter right down to the last few minutes. Next week starts Phase B. Blue team is Central, Red team is Entente and we get new planes.
