This is the looong thread of the "DiD Campaign Revival" - Rules updated last on 3 May 2015.




















[Flanders map by from RAF_Louvert. Download link and division line by Robert_Wiggins.]

Full-size Map for download


BELGIAN CARREER

The Belgians are now in the campaign. Since there are no Belgian units, each flyer must find himself
a French unit near the North Sea coast, which used the desired aircraft the Belgians also used.
We must improvise. The Farman pushers will be represented by the FE.2b (Farman Experimental 2b).
The Hanriot can be "played" by the Sopwith Camel. Nieuports and Strutters are available.

RAF_Louvert and I will provide Belgian flyers with several standard and ace skins with Belgian markings.
These skins will be available in the "Donload Section" at COMBAT ACE, or as a JSGME-ready version
provided by Robert_Wiggins.

FRENCH TWO-SEATER TIME

There seem to be no French two-seater units available in June 1916, which is a real pity.
For this reason, the French pilots must absolve 3 hours of training flights.


CHANGING NATIONALITY or LEVEL

You can have only one pilot at one time.
You can only change the NATIONALITY or the LEVEL for each new pilot, after the demise of old one.


Campaign Start

The "DiD Campaign Revival" will start on June 7, 2014.
If you still have questions, pls ask - but make sure you have read the first page of this thread -
there might be further updates over time.

PILOT ENLISTMENT AND RECORDS PAGE

Just use this link, enlist and send your pilot's records here:

www.attrill.co.za/WOFFcampaign.htm


Flanders North or Flanders South

To help you determine if your pilot's area of operation is Flanders North or South,
I have made the above Flanders map after RABU's original OFF maps.


NAVAL RANKS

As a German Marineflieger (Naval pilot) you start with the rank of "Vizeflugmeister".
The British RNAS pilots start with the lowest available rank - there are fewer ranks only.


VICTORY VALUATION

Since we saw, that victories would sometimes be 5 or more in a single sortie in WOFF.
Not the flyers' fault, and therefor they can hardly do much about it, when such fights happen.
To come to more realistic-looking victory tallies, the counting of victories will be like this:

1 - 3 victories per sortie = 1
4 - 6 Victories per sortie = 2
more than 6 vic per sortie = 3

Each pilot will count his victories accordingly, and report the result then.


ADDITIONAL RULES - Use of time compression and auto-pilot
Both are allowed for B and C pilots. For A-pilots they are both forbidden.

Sound like fun!


MACHINE GUN FIRE: CAMBRIN by ROBERT GRAVES (September 25 1915)

The torn line wavers, breaks, and falls. 'Get up, come on!' the captain calls 'Get up, the Welsh, and on we go!' (Christ, that my lads should fail me so!) A dying boy grinned up and said: 'The whole damned company, sir; it's dead.' 'Come on! Cowards!' bawled the captain, then Fell killed, among his writhing men.

Thank you Siggi for the original idea and of course to you Olham for keeping this dream alive. This encompasses what WOFF is all about. We can not go back in time, but we can do our best to experience the war in the air like WWI pilots did. Some fought for glory and victories, yet most I believe fought to survive, to be free and to go back to their families and friends.

This brings us close to that reality as anything can and that survival mindset is what's at the heart of this DiD campaign. I look forward to this Olham and I want to take a moment to thank you for your hard work and effort to bring this to fruition.

Thank you, Shiloh, but I am not doing this all on my own.
Siggi (where ever you may be now) built the original idea.
Shredward helped me with dividing the war months and zones into "hot", "medium" and "quiet" time zones.
RAF_Louvert will help with the Belgian carreer and medals.
And many others from our fine community come up with tips and ideas to complete the task.

In the end it will be a community product for us all to enjoy, I hope.

That is going to be huge! Count me in.
About two-seaters and fighters. If I get it correctly, each fighter career must start with a 5-hour two-seater run?
Do we keep "Transfers always approved" option On for this purpose?

Yes, "Always approved" should be on for the transfer.
I will work out more rules and advice for settings tomorrow, and I will point that out.
Thx for the reminder!

By the way: if anyone should prefer to get transfered to any unit without any own choice -
you can always do that, and let the sim select, where you will be sent.

Absolutely terrific, Olham! Thank you, Shred and Lou for putting in the time and effort to bring back and enhance DID Campaign.

I generally fly with the DID mindset..so I might do well here..since I think I have had only an embarrassing two or three victories since WOFF was released :>)

I hope we can start on Saturday, 7 June in real life. That would mean we would start on 7 June 1916.

Nope. June 1916 is perfect.
The air war only just begins to become a lethal business, and we will witness all important stages.
In the beginning, the Germans only have Fokker Eindecker scouts, but their time is over, and the
Entente has the better fighters. But soon, in August, the Germans may equal the balance with the
Halberstadt; and then in September they will gain superiority with the Albatros D.II for a while.
Starting in June 1916 will bring us most intetesting ups and downs for both sides IMHO.

Summer is coming, this will be "mostly away from PC time" - not talking about the World Cup between June 12 and July 14 ! Not a time for me to pick up new flying duties, will catch up in September and read your high deeds in the meantime smile

No problem, Corsaire.
I guess many will still fall early - flying WOFF is just a tough business.
It may be easily possible to catch up with the earlier flyers.
