    Did some more colour testing and I think there's been a marked improvement in all the squadrons in terms of recognisability. Still not quite the fully desired effect (I.E. instantly recognisable from extreme range) but I think I've got the squadrons looking as good as they ever will as far as recognition is concerned. The 213th's new "orangey-red" does the trick quite nicely, and one aircraft in particular is pretty much immediately recognisable from almost any range! 


    Speaking of the 213th...I stumbled across the old "1st Edition" 213th skins the other day...was really cool to see how the skin pack has changed since then!

    I've just tried this out and it works as advertised. Chief advantage is that your view doesn't freeze while your typing in chat.

    S, all! 

    With Flying Circus Vol. 2 right around the corner, I thought it would be nice to revisit the early days of Flying Circus to remind us how far along it's come (DMs and other craziness aside!) 

    For that reason, I put together a brief history of Flying Circus' first organised community event in a little "Mini-Book", to be enjoyed by old FC pilots and newcomers alike. 

    You can check it out Here ! 

    Enjoy!

    I recall seeing something weird like that when I was using that mod for VR zoom. Every time there was an update it messed with that mod.
    If you have used mods in that past I would check your mod install folder or JSMGE to see if there is something there that is no longer supported or needs an update. What about shaders.

    Remembrance Day poems
    In Flanders Fields by John McCrae
    In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.
    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
    In Flanders fields.
    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.

    My favorite poem from the First World War, posted in remembrance for Veterans Day / Armistice Day:
    http://www.greatwar.co.uk/poems/ewart-alan-mackintosh-in-memoriam.htm
    In Memoriam, by Ewart Alan Mackintosh (killed in action 21st November 1917 aged 24)
    So you were David’s father,
    And he was your only son,
    And the new-cut peats are rotting
    And the work is left undone,
    Because of an old man weeping,
    Just an old man in pain,
    For David, his son David,
    That will not come again.
    Oh, the letters he wrote you,
    And I can see them still,
    Not a word of the fighting,
    But just the sheep on the hill
    And how you should get the crops in
    Ere the year get stormier,
    And the Bosches have got his body,
    And I was his officer.
    You were only David’s father,
    But I had fifty sons
    When we went up in the evening
    Under the arch of the guns,
    And we came back at twilight -
    O God! I heard them call
    To me for help and pity
    That could not help at all.
    Oh, never will I forget you,
    My men that trusted me,
    More my sons than your fathers’,
    For they could only see
    The little helpless babies
    And the young men in their pride.
    They could not see you dying,
    And hold you while you died.
    Happy and young and gallant,
    They saw their first-born go,
    But not the strong limbs broken
    And the beautiful men brought low,
    The piteous writhing bodies,
    They screamed “Don’t leave me, sir”,
    For they were only your fathers
    But I was your officer.
    . . .
    On the evening of 16th May, 1916 Lieutenant Ewart Alan Mackintosh and Second Lieutenant Mackay of the 5th Battalion Seaforth Highlanders led a raid on the German trenches in the sector of the front line north-west of Arras.
    By the end of the night there were sixteen British casualties, which included fourteen wounded and two killed. One of the two dead soldiers was Private David Sutherland.
    Private David Sutherland has no known grave. His name is commemorated in Bay 8 of the Arras Memorial to the Missing at Faubourg d'Amiens military cemetery in Arras.

    the "shanty Irish" were the poor, who were presumed to live in shanties, or roughly-built cabins.
     
    The "lace curtain Irish" were those who were well off.

    This is a fairly popular thread, as you can google search "CH manager win10" and find it.
    For all guests - my experience was that disabling the Microsoft Store (either temporarily or permanently) was the best possible fix.

    Hello everyone! 
    As you all know, WW1 aviation has long fascinated me. I believe the story of WW1 (and even more specifically, WW1 aviators) tends to be overshadowed by WW2 and doesn't get as much press as it deserves. I also enjoy reading/writing and now that I no longer have to write college papers (woo hoo! 😁), I occasionally get the itch to research something and write about it.
    That being the case, I present to you, "Climbing Higher" - my personal blog on all things WW1 aviation! Every so often, when I have the inclination and free time, I'll be posting articles about WW1 aviation to my personal blog (linked below):
    https://rookieace.wixsite.com/climbinghigher
    My first post is a book review of a rarer WW1 aviation memoir: "A German Airman Remembers" by Hans Schröder. To see my thoughts on this unique read, just click on the link below!
