Haven't played RoF for a while, where do I set Distances of Career missions, i.e. Minimum, Small, Medium or Large? Says I should find it in Settings, but don't see it. Thanks, SW

I didn't think the Career was configurable. Where did you read that?

I think Pat Wilson's CG might have those settings, but not the one in ROF itself AFAIK.

Many years ago when I first found RoF and OFF/HITR it got me going on WWI again. I think I did a Free to Play RoF and copied a User Manual called Iron Cross Edition, which says that you can adjust the distances of your Career missions. Probably not possible as you fellas say. I like the option since RL doesn't give me lots of time to fly missions, so I need to hurry them up a bit. Guess I'll use the [ to move some time along. Thanks SW

You can set the distances of your Career missions in your Settings.
There are four choices:

  • Minimum – Your plane appears in the air near the objective of the mission. The
    return trip will be calculated from the settings. The average flight time for this
    kind of mission is only 10-15 minutes.

  • Small - Your starting point is on the ground at an airfield at a distance of 10 -15
    kilometers from the mission objective. The average time to perform the mission is
    about 30 minutes.

  • Medium or Large - Your starting point is on the ground at an airfield at a distance
    of 15 - 40 kilometers from the mission objective. The average time to perform the
    mission is 30 - 60 minutes or more. These missions are the most realistic kind of
    missions in ROF. The distances flown are very similar to those of the actual
    missions flown by the real pilots of WWI.


Tip! You can use the Autopilot mode to ease your flight navigation to the target area.
Autopilot mode is fully automatic and makes flying to the target area or mission
objective very easy. You are simply along for the ride. To activate Autopilot hit the "A"
button on your keyboard.

Tip! Another tip to ease your flying is to activate the Auto Level function. The Auto
Level function simply levels your aircraft and prevents it from drifting up and down.
This is very helpful on long flights or planes that have a tendency to pitch up. It is
simply designed to maintain your course and altitude. Activate the Auto-Level
function by hitting the "Shift + A" keys on your keyboard

I don't believe these settings aren't available anymore, they are for an older version of RoF.
I suspect before the current Career implementation.

Would love someone to prove me wrong though smile

I downloaded the current manual from the RoF website and you do seem to be correct. I couldn't find anything in it regarding limiting the distances either.
