  1. S! All After a long hard fight Blue Team emerges with a decisive victory. We had many great engagements with the early plane set. There were epic battles over some of the targets. Over all it was great fun and very exciting. Big CONGRATZ to Blue Team. Well done.
  2. S! Luft Yes, time does fly and it is because of you and the others listed above that we have such a good organization and a lot of fun! Both congratz and thank you to ALL !
  3. S! All Only one more session. We have had some very good fights. Unfortunately in the heat of battle things can get out of hand. We have seen some unfortunate things said in chat. This is not good sportsmanship. Accusations in open chat are not acceptable. Participants engaging in this behavior will be sanction according to the rules and code of conduct. If you have something that needs attention please go through your team commander
  4. Voila Will probably be in next release. Expect in about 4 weeks.

  6. S! All This week we switch sides. Blue team is Entente and Red team is Central. To all: "May your plane be swift, your aim be true and your enemy vanquished." good luck !
  7. Welcome. Not to worry. While many of us have been doing online flight sims for years, we are all just beginners. FiF = Flanders in Flames. It is the name of the tournament. It is a 2 hour event on Saturdays at 2 pm Eastern time. There is no German team. There is a Blue team and a Red team. One plays Entente and the other Central, We play two sessions and then the teams switch sides. The Entente become Central and the Central become Entente. This is to even out any advantage or disadvantage in the plane set or map design. After 4 sessions the plane set is upgraded and we do 4 more
  8. S! All We are in phase B. Our first session was very exciting. The fight at the end was epic- planes everywhere. More like the battle of Midway with both teams throwing planes at each other. Unfortunately with that many planes all in one place there were several collisions. I am sure there are people on both sides that think some of it was intentional. It is easy to say that it takes two to tango. That is not always the case. Planes get damaged. Pilots get wounded. Wings hide other planes. Someone has a higher ping. Shit happens. I would hope no one is intentionally ramming another pilot.
  9. S! All Congrats to Blue team on their victory in phase A ! The early plane set is always a challenge. We had some very good fights. In session 4, the Red team had two planes hit invisible objects. One was found at the hangars of the airfield for Prison 1 on the Entente side. Still trying to find the other object. Now it is time for phase B ......... new planes, new challenges!
  10. If someone makes static models that just sit on the field, yes. If they have t be AI planes, no. BoX hates AI planes. The new AI eats up a lot of CPU time.
  11. S! Yes, FC allows many things to be changed for the better. One example will be bridges. The bridge will be the target. No AAA on the bridge. There might be an MG nearby. Also if it is like BoX, there will be people walking around the airfields. Much more life. The map will be much easier to understand.
  12. S! All IL2 Update. Mostly bug fixes and minor features for multiplayer. Some Tank Crew fixes. No new planes Read it here.
  13. S! All We have gone through the first half of phase A. Now we switch sides. Blue team will fly Entente and Red team will fly Central. Please remember FE2b is allowed two guns up front. The Roland and W-12 are not allowed two guns in the rear. Only one gun for the back seat. We have seen some glitches where a secondary mission is not activating. I have checked, checked and re-checked. No explanation. Sorry.
  14. S! All They posted a quickie patch for IL2. Now it shows previous chat. Other small fixes.

    FC Skins

    S! All Template for U2 is out I did some cheesy skins. They work and are the default skins on JG1 FC maps. That means you do not pick a skin or else they are under custom- not sure. Download link is in FC thread at IL2
  16. S! All Big sale on IL2 products. Anywhere from 25% to 60%. Update fixes several bugs. game should run much better.
  17. S! All Session one got off to a rocky start because I had corrupted the server file somehow. Fixed now. Blue team had a problem with the rescue mission. When completed, it did NOT give a secondary. Well the mission is perfect. Naturally. I flew the mission and NO secondary. I slapped the guy around and he would not talk. I looked the mission over. The trigger for the complete subtitle also activates the secondary mechanism. Not only is there a single trigger but there is a backup. I replaced the primary and backup and it works fine. ( famous last words ) Red team had a secondary su
  18. S! All This Saturday, 26,January, 2019, there will be a Dry Run for Flanders in Flames Winter campaign. It may be Winter but the map is set to summer. Blue team starts as Central. Red team starts as Entente. Because this is a Dry Run, there is no death penalty other than the usual 5 minutes before you fly again. Special features for this campaign: Central will be using the W-12 float plane for spy pick up. The Spy may be on a submarine in the large northern bay. The Spy plane can land along the coast line or rivers on the Central side to complete the mission. He does not need to
  19. S! All We are getting things ready for a Dry run on 26 January 2019 at the usual time. Information about planes, maps, rules, schedule etc. The JG1 server will be running a practice map on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. This will allow people to get familiar with the map and planes. The in game start time is 13:45. If you get on the server and there is not enough time to do the mission you want, you can restart the mission by killing a balloon at the two seater base. Saturday after FiF, Sunday, Monday until 9 pm Eastern North American time and Wednesdays
  20. S! Larner I love the historical look combined with personal numbers. The 4 k skins look great in screen shots but yes 2 k work very well. It is easy to make 2k skins. After you save the 2 k dds, resize to 2048 pixels and save this dds in a different folder. Suggestion for all skin post to work now and in the future. Start a post with your squad name Ex: JG1 Skin pack Folder 1 - 4 K combined skins of last update and new skins posted in folder 2 - For people that have not downloaded any of these skins. Folder 2 - 4 k New skins not in last combined skin pack - Fo
