  1. 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.
  2. 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 looks good. Balloons do not flare so I have a vehicle on the ground that does. Actual WW I tanks have replaced WW II armored cars. All Flak is WW I.
  3. 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 session is OK, then we will try session 3 on December 7 at the usual time. IF this session is OK, then we will use the scores from these two sessions and that will be the end of the Fall Campaign. Should the November 23 have the disconnect problem we will end the fall campaign at that time. Sorry for the problems. JG1_Butzzell_J11
  4. Roads are OK if u stay on them.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 note: Any targets destroyed or missions completed after the "Hostilities are over" subtitle are not counted towards the score. This keeps the time available to complete missions the same for both teams.
  8. 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.
  9. S! Practice server is up and will stay up all week.
  10. 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.
  11. S! All If you saw the movie "Fury" , this is a must - "If Fury was a British Film"
  12. ? We used the Bodenplatte map Thursday and there were some micro stutters associated with the clouds which have been removed. For the most part, we had about 25 people on at the same time.
  13. S! Sounds good. Will try and set up rotation so that the Morning patrol starts around 9:15 pm EST.
  14. S! All Yes another subtitle error now fixed. Major problem. Invisible object was found at Prison 1 on the Entente side. We saw these on the England side of the Channel map. GameCock, sent me pictures of location. Normally I place a water tower there to show people where it is. This time I removed the Aerodrome structures and replaced it with a different model. It worked ! Invisible object gone. The invisible object is some sort of problem with the model and skin of one of the aerodrome hangar models/skins.
  15. S! All Brief update. A target subtitle was found to have the correct name but wrong location. Corrected. The "Bridge Killed" message was being displayed during the first target list update after the flare. This was thought to be a subtitle error. Nope. A counter error. Nope. A display array error. Nope. A bad truck.Nope. A bad bridge? Yup. The AAA truck was not going up on the bridge. It was going through the bridge and into the river where it died and gave a "Killed" message to the counter. The bridge had to be changed for a different model.
  16. S! All Hostilities begin this Saturday, 12, October 2019 at 2 pm Eastern USA time. Blue team is flying Central and Red team is Entente, Good luck to all !
  17. Ahem,,, and an S! You know of course that red nose and yellow tail are the colors used by Lothar von Richthofen. Quite the coincidence.
  18. Dear Snag, Please let me know when you go on vacation. Leave a key to your house under the welcome mat. Have truck will travel Seriously, I think this is a way to go. The motion control seat with VR is about as close as you can get to the real thing. Back in the 90's I saw the motion control rides in Vegas. I think there is a whole new world of entertainment there. I imagined venues with several rides. There would be team events. Let's go national!
  19. S! True confession. I really like the Goat emblem and the paints look Grrrrrreat!
  20. S! All Leaves are dropping. Days are shorter. There is a chill in the air. Bullets are flying. Bombs are dropping. It must be Flanders in Flames Fall Campaign 2019. All the particulars are posted under FiF tournament information. Of special note will be the map for this series. If you have flown Jasta 5's excellent series "Bloody April" you will recognize it as the northern half of that area. We have not used this area for an FiF. We use it now because of the great variety of rivers, roads and rail roads. The plane set will be early: N-17, N-17 GB, Strutter, RE8, Halb D.II, Halb Cl2 and Roland Cl2. We will have a Dry Run on 5, October, 2019 at the usual time.
  21. Monitor? I do not see a monitor. There is some funny big box that he put a picture of a screen on to fool us.
  22. S! Vonrd Great job on putting it all together. Works very well. Easy to download and install. Download did not take all that long.
