  1. Imagine what a single, low flying D.H.4 could have done in that picture Recent reading has also made it apparent certain plane types weren't even flown by specific Jastas. It is sad to contemplate that the Dr.1 was never flown by J10. As such, they were the first to get the brand new D.VII. Therefore the very earliest paint schemes (and cross styles) for that plane have special significance in J10. Also the Pfalz D.IIIa, which was ever-present alongside the Albs at that time, got at least as much use in J10 as anywhere else.

  3. For all J5 and JG1: I was wondering if anybody in JG1 would be interested in flying as part of the Red Team (Entente) in week 3. J5 "sacrificed" and flew Entente in week 2 to even teams up. If this is needed in week 3, I for one would love a chance to fly Entente. I'm also under the impression that J5 has flown on the Entente side more than they might really have wanted to in many events. I like the fact that this year's event isn't set in stone, and even though I prefer to fly with my squad-mates, I don't mind switching sides at all (if my mates are in agreement), to keep everybody happy....and give J5 a chance to fly on their native side. In fact, the chance to fly with new team mates is pretty cool, within an event, IMHO. If you're in agreement with me or just plain want to post an opinion of any kind, please do. I'm having a great time either way. It is nice to know ahead of time though, so I (we) can get some practice in the "enemy" crates. S!
  4. Bump- Luftritter Fokker D.VII post updated, link activated.
  5. Of all of the other pilots, I found your J10 scheme on your CL.II the most recognizable in the air last week, Vonrd. Great job!
  6. It seems to me the devs of DCS deliver with a lot less BS. Of course the cost is higher....(or is it?) It has always been hard for me to like this Jason fellow's attitude.
  7. What connection does DCS have with the whole GB franchise, if any? With regard to Loopy's original post, it appears to me that this is a tactic that the devs have been using for most of the history of RoF. Before we even have a complete sim, they're already threatening to say it's over and defunct. You buy everything possible and STILL they claim it's not enough. Well, I am tired of it. MAYBE, they have been looking at the purchases and server stats for FC so far and have already decided that it's unprofitable. Even though it's not yet fully completed! They don't care about the core. I don't think they ever have. It's not enough for them. We've just been lucky enough to have been dragged along with whatever marketing ploy seems viable for them at any given time. Buyer beware. I guess only expect the bare minimum of what they advertised (i.e.: volume one). I think what almost any of us wanted was an extension of RoF. If you judge by their posts, we'll be lucky to get the bare minimum of volume one, no more. The sky is falling! The sky is falling!! etc. End Rant
  8. No, as you can clearly see, it's so I can tell left from right 😄 Seriously though, we should keep this thread just individual submission posts, so the administration folks don't have to scroll through a million posts. I hope the Admins will move these commentaries to a separate commentary thread. It is not a bad idea for folks to make comments or post opinions so that we can maintain a standard of quality, to some extent, before the skins are actually added to official packs.
  9. Coming soon: Standard Fokker D.VII for Luftritter. I request this be added to our official skin pack(s). Luftritter Fokker D.VII Excessive Thanks to author, Larner!! @Vonrd, link activated, photos updated!
  10. I remember that Vonrd suggested that we have such a thread, and since I haven't seen an official one yet, I will start one and also request that it become a sticky in the "JG1 Skins" section. For discussions regarding paint schemes, post here.
  11. Bodenplatte Templates Look under "Battle of Bodenplatte" (below "collector planes") 🙂
  12. That is very decent of you, and I plan to be there, regardless. Even if I only get to talk to people waiting, or the organizers, I still want to be there. Flying will be secondary, but nice, if possible. I feel the same as you, there are others with no or little flight time that need to get a taste of the fun before me, next week. S!
  13. I really don't think that's any big deal....I'll bet you could simply register on the stats server, whenever; and I doubt anybody at all would have any beefs. So long as the server wasn't completely full and both sides were reasonably balanced. This event, this year, seems a lot less formal and hard-lined, since it is breaking new ground and things are being learned as they progress. Of course I won't speak for the organizers, but it's a simple matter of asking, and IMHO the chances of a no answer seem pretty remote. I personally like the way it's being handled and think they're doing a great job. Everybody seems to be having a lot of fun. I think it's going to be well-remembered for a long time. I would definitely recommend trying to get in on it if at all possible, before it's over for the year.
  14. True. But he did seem to know, though.... 🤷‍♂️ I think next week, if we have even more JG1's show up (which I suspect and hope will be true), I'll hang back to let others have a chance first. There is no reason why I should have a guaranteed spot every week. Truthfully, in the poll, I actually stated that I'd fly either side; so I'm not really sure how I ended up on the Central-only list. If we are lucky, they may increase the limit for next week....they've used that plan in the past; so if that allows everybody to fly, I'll jump in. If not, I've had a good amount of flight time in the first week, so I can step aside. In addition to those who flew in week 1, I think we may see Hook, Hotlead and maybe Labroisse and Lee. If Brit continues to show up, we may even see an obscure new recruit called "Klaiber" appear before it's all over!! 😄 👍 S!
