The Italian Front with flyable Austro-Hungarians would be awesome.

Why not the middle east front? Australians and Brits flew there. I would think regenerating a desert would be less time consuming since when I was in the Middle East, there wasn't much scenery copter

Gah!
You guys are killing me. Those are all side shows.
The main event is in France. Once my fantasy of all squadrons and all aircraft types for the Western Front (1914-18) is fulfilled you guys can have these other fronts.

Did not read the whole 37 pages, but:

I would like to see a add-on pack that is containing more early war planes, like Moranes/Farmans/Pfalz-E models.

And think this will not be a big seller: a Belgium add-on pack.

Not exactly a wish, but some information that might be used to adjust the 'hardness' of wooden fences and chance of injury/death from combat related crashes:

I have just received the new edition of Henshaw's "The sky their battlefield", and this 2nd expanded ed. has a great deal of information now on accidents, with the appendix "An analysis of Western Front accidents: how many 'walked away'?".

Using 13,900 Western Front aircraft casualty reports (RFC/RAF) Trevor Henshaw calculates that of 8,044 crashes and accidents involving no enemy involvement, 6,678 'described or inferred the airmen walked away with no injury' and only '17% resulted in any injury or death to personnel'. Where the crash was the result of enemy action, this increases dramatically to 74%.

He drills down into the data further, and gives the chance of not 'walking away' for each type of aircraft used by the RFC/RAF. For the Sopwith Triplane, for example, the % chance of injury or death from non-combat related crashes is 44.4%, whereas for the BE2c it is much lower at 11.8%. Aircraft types used predominantly for night flying have a correspondingly higher chance of injury or death from crashes.

Lately, when I kill an enemy pilot, I just don't like the sound he emits as he dies.

Homer Simpson having an orgasim and then heavy breathing.

It has been toned down in patches, thank you, and I tweaked some in workshop, but I miss the other sounds by doing so.

I miss the louder train sound.

Since the planes have flares I was wondering if Baloon AA could also be given flares as a sort of flaming onion. Just for the looks, no damage needed.

I wish the Realistic Claims were more ... realistic.
This:


is neither realistic nor fair.
I couldn't care less if my kill was stolen. I have enough claims to be awarded The Blue Max twice in the same month, but my wingman is devastated. He can't eat or sleep. He's consumed by the stolen glory.
Anyways, can we have another look at the claims allocation? I know it takes only one bullet, but this is going overboard.

The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,

This is great information, Bletchley, and I hope will precipitate a change in WOFF fence lethality. Right now I don't use "random engine failure" as an engine failure means almost certain death. If it meant a 17% chance of injury or death (assuming I've landed my plane correctly) then it would be a fun challenge.

Perhaps this has been posted in this thread previously(haven't read through the 38 pages), but I would like to have the ability to land, and not have the mission end, then take off again and continue flying. Would add immersion and reality to WOFF IMO.

Thanks Robert
I do turn the engine off. Can't restart afterward. But I unfortunately always come in too fast, don't circle and hence have shut down as I land. Perhaps I'll try more patience and leave the engine running.

I recall in RB "back in the day", one could turn the engine off and then restart. FS as well.

Anyway thanks for the tip.

Arty Gun muzzle flashes. Maybe MG tracer across no mans land. If it isn't done already Explosions in No Mans land are fired from an on map Arty Unit. Lots more Arty Units. Different explosions in No mans land depending on size of calibre. Shrapnel burst clouds from shrapnel rounds over no mans land. Actual Land Mine explosions at the right time they went off in the right part of No Mans Land.

A kind of time advance in game so when on the way back home you can have an option to teleport (time is advanced accordingly) above airfield unless you are attacked or have the opportunity to attack and the your taken to that point instead after being warned. This way when you haven't much time to play you can speed up the mission abit.
