It has been suggested before to create such a list. So I have taken the initiative to set up this thread.
Consider it an opportunity to draw attention to your interest for features not currenly in WOFF, and not a forum to requesst fixes for features already there.

Any suggestions added here will only be suggestions. Devs will act on them at their discretion.

Also be reasonable - asking for a new game or engine does not belong here - this is about additions / changes to WOFF within its current context.

Best Regards

Features which I like from other sims:
1. Adjustable waypoints and altitudes
2. Selectable wingmen or lone wolf
3. Play back mission on map with text descriptions of events as they happened. At same time, able to hover mouse over airfields and cities to see their names.

1. Working cameras for recon missions.
2. System for directing artillery fire for arty cooperation missions.
3. Bombsights for aircraft that had them in real life.

Those would make two-seater careers more interesting and popular, I'm sure.

4. French two-seaters.

Almost forgot that one. biggrin

I fly fully zoomed out. This represents the most realistic view for me.

The problem, as most know, is that the enemy might not be drawn at this zoom level until rather close.

We all know that you may be looking at a section of clear sky at one zoom level and it becomes occupied when you zoom one level up.

Devs: Can we please draw aircraft as dots (not the visual aid "dots" but as grey dots) no matter what the zoom level please? I know that ROF was able to do something like this and it improved gameplay so much.

I want to remove system now of aircraft only being drawn if you are zoomed in.

Thanks for the great sim.

1) Straight & Level Autopilot OR Customizable in-flight Waypoint system.

2) Individually mappable key command slots for Gunsight View, pilot map view, etc.

3) Profit.

1. Historically accurate aerodromes. I know this couldn't be for them all, but some of the most famous are well documented. Operating from bases we know so well and recognize visually would be awesome.

2. Parachutes for Germans in 1918.

3. Albatros D.I.


BTW, love the idea for expansion packs. Looking forward to The Fokker Scourge! IMO, Schlachtflieger and Independent Air Force expansions would be great.

1. I'd like more of a warning sound before the wings on my Sopwith Pup, Sopwith Triplane or Fokker DR1 snap off, if possible. They seem mighty fragile. There are some creaking sounds before hand, but then nothing for awhile and then all of a sudden - snap!

Definitely looking forward to the expansion packs. Can't wait for Gothas & Zeps!

1--It'd be great to have a different sound when a target's wings are ripping (ripping fabric sound), as opposed to my own (even perhaps just a fainter/more distant sound for the other plane) so that there's no confusion as to whose plane is being damaged.
If I'm in a dive and I'm shooting and then I hear that sound I dont know if it's my wings or the targets that are ripping....

2--A one button view to zoom in on the gun sight, and one button view back to cockpit view.

3--Ability to use control F1 or shift F1/F2 to switch to enemy plane/enemy vehicle and friendly plane/friendly vehicle, with the option to continue pressing to continue cycling

WoFF's already terrific....and looking forward to released add-ons and mods!

Broadside your wings ripping should sound much louder than others.

Yeah, some improvement here would be appreciated.

You should check out the Nieuport 28C. It's even more fragile than the earlier Nieuports and a moderate turn at 150mph can rip it without warning. I know it's top wing fabric would rip off in extended dives but even the short dives can be deadly in that thing.

Made me wonder if it has the same speed->wing damage modelling as the older Noops, despite not having the "half wing" twisting weakness that the earlier ones did. The higher cruise speeds make it approach that danger area faster, too, and it seems to be about the same danger speed as N24s and such.

1. Slower rate of promotions. It seems you can still get promoted extremely quickly, the same thing as in OFF P3. You can go from a lowly NCO to a captain within a couple of months game time.

2. Visible rank insignia, maybe a complete uniform or something. The new medal art is impressive, but promotions get only a very short mention in the debriefing. Obviously this is pure immersion stuff, and definitely not even close to high priority!

1--screen shot or complete plane viewer of plane skins.
There are so many great skins, and an ingame viewer would be terrific! (you can view the planes separately with an external viewer, but only the plane parts can be viewed, not the finished product--very frustrating and mostly a waste of time.

1. In the intell screen (or even in the briefing screen) I would like to be able to click on enemy aerodromes and see what's there instead of having to click one squadron from a list not knowing where on the map it will show up. So the aerodromes would already be visible and just clicking on one would pull up the relevant info.

I know it's currently possible to equip some planes with flares and then the player can fire them, although probably with no actual purpose in the current game.
So maybe it could be possible to have AI flights regularly use flares to issue commands like rejoin, assist or rtb. I think it would be very cool and add to the immersion and situational awareness of the player, besides being historically correct.

Please make a legible tactical map in the briefing room that would reflect the layout of the terrain in 3D in your area of operations. It will greatly increase the immersion for those flying with the paper/on-screen maps.

Thanks,
Dirk.

1. Better inflight map.
2. Option to see also friendly squadrons on the intel screen.
