Thanks Klai! And congrats and thanks to the other awardees.

 

I really hope that we can continue to build on this momentum. Perhaps a WWII tournament in the future? I still have hopes for GS but it seems to be on hiatus at present. Sure... BOX has warts in multiples but, as I've said before, I think it has maybe the best potential for tournament. (Probably more FIF than GS maybe). As Barton has illustrated (and I definitely confirm) the stall / post stall behavior is wonky. But ROF is even worse I think (pump the stick, shut the engine off... etc, etc to recover) and FIF on saturdays is, at least well populated and popular. We've learned how to live with the foibles and still have a great time. I encourage those who are still resistant to BOX to give it a try with us who are practicing. It may be more palatable when flying with your squadmates. Hold your nose maybe  :P

S! Congrats to all.

 

Like Vonrd said, we are always happy to fly with more JG1 pilots.

At this time, most of the flying is done on New Wings BOS server (to get better at flying, taxing and landing).

But, we are waiting for some maps/missions from Butzzell & Danudet.

Let us know guys when your missions are ready to be tested (even in BETA stage), we will try to setup the JG1 server.

 

Cheers,

Gen ;)

The JG1 training mission I made is ready.  I finished it on Tues.

 

On request from last night, I started on another training mission for high level bombing practice.  This one will have 3 levels of difficulty.  The first is located in the north of the map and has the targets in a straight line, with little to no Flak defense.  The center of the map will have staggered targets, with light to moderate flak defense.

 

There will only be 2 targets in the south.  One high value target (maybe a Supply Depot (many targets within, but still tightly packed) moderate to heavy Flak defense.

 

The final target is a factory complex within a large city.  I'm thinking of making a Multiple aircraft joint attack. (A Recon flight goes in to locate and activate the target.  Will possibly encounter light to moderate Flak, and maybe a single or element enemy fighter patrol).  A 110/109 Jabo strike package against the nearby airfield.  Success or failure of that mission will determine aerial opposition for the main bomber strike and her escorts.  The bomber force will be intercepted inbound to the target and outbound from the target.  Over the target, will have heavy Flak, and based on what the recon pilot can relate to the group, they will have to pick the factory out from within the city proper.  If I can make it work (mainly with the size of the city) I'll put in 4 different targets within the city, the recon flight will activate 1 of those. 

 

What do you all think?

All that detail is impressive and can easily lead itself to a campaign setting

 

I have already started a campaign/Tournement level MP mission.  "The March on Moscow".  Starts in Aug 15 1941, on the Velikiyeluki Map.  The LVII and the XXXX German Panzer Corps attempts to retake Velikiyeluki after loosing the city back in July.
