Good Morning All,

It's been a crazy busy couple of weeks here for me but I did manage to get in some time on this project. Just a pair of teasers before heading out again for the day. Thanks as always for the support and kudos folks, really helps keep me focused on such affairs as this.

Later!

Lou

Lou, an excellent piece of work as usual! I might just enlist your skills for a redecorating of my DiD pilot's digs biggrin

That is really marvelous, Lou. Thanks so much. Can you, pls, include this juicy target into the WOFFScenery/Period/xxx/Targets list?
Speaking as an Axis bomber pilot that would be very appreciated.

Absolutely gorgeous, Lou. Great work as always.

Be careful, Jara. I bet Lou will be defending such a juicy target with plenty of guns! I also get the feeling that your puny bombs won't be able to put much of a dent into such a formidable structure.

Speaking as one of the English Lords, it would be very much appreciated if you would bomb that for us. Save us a lot of petrol, as the Citadelle de Lille is a considerable distance into Hunland. We could spend the day dressed in ladies clothing, having tea and crumpets instead.

Thanks for the feedback gents, glad the place is looking good to you all. And Jara, as Shredward has pointed out, Lille was under German control for nearly the entire war. Also, the Citadelle was used as a prison for the hostages who'd be taken by the Hun to insure the obedience of the city's inhabitants, so it was not targeted by the Entente forces for that reason.

Because you’d bomb it anyway. Itchy trigger finger and all that. winkngrin

Great work Lou! Can’t wait to see it finished with the sheep and cows around. But ... why is there Pentagon near Lille? rolleyes

Lou, this is amazing stuff. Then again, everything you've done has been amazing stuff.

I've been having some issues with the combined airfield mod of late, so I haven't been able to appreciate the work as much recently. I was getting a crash to the mission end screen after about 5 minutes of flight, and it was occurring sporadically, about once in every four or five missions. It might simply be overloading my CPU, I've removed all mods and begun reinstalling them one at a time. So far, no issue with the populated airfield mods, but the crashes resume when the combined airfield mod goes back in. I spoke with Robert Wiggins this week and he's going to check the mission logs for me.

Do you think Mossy Face Wood will ever be a standalone mod?

Raine, yes, for sure, my plan is still to offer Mossy Face Wood as a standalone and I am hopeful it will be soon. If things go well here I would like to finish up the forts mod and Mossy Face and get them both posted within the next two weeks*.
As to your CTD when using the combined airfield mod it may be an overload issue, though I tend to doubt it. Have you tried installing just one standalone aerodrome mod to see if the issue occurs in that situation?

Fullofit, the Pentagon, just as the Statue of Liberty, was a gift to the U.S. from France. Lille is where they mocked it up first before sending it over in pieces to us - yeah that's it that's the ticket. winkngrin

Lou, that's my next plan -- installing standalone mods to see if it's a problem I can isolate. But I tend to think it might be an overload. The only odd thing about the overload hypothesis is that in my last DiD pilot's career, I'd get the same crash while flying behind German lines well north of Reims, and I can't think what the thing would have been trying to load in that location.

I'm not working at the problem very hard at the moment because I have time only to fly Corderoy's DiD career, and there is no way I'll risk a mission-ending crash with a British DiD pilot; the crash would be highly likely to drop the fellow out of the air on the wrong side of the lines.

Thanks for your reply! It's always great to have you back in the campaign thread.

Seasons Greetings All,

I am getting close to wrapping up my "WOFF UE Forts 1.0 Mod" and am working on winter textures right now for le Citadelle de Lille. Here's a chilly teaser for you.

[Linked Image]
The view from 12,000' - man it's cold up here!


The first release of this mod will contain this facility as well as adding in the ring of forts around Verdun. I will make available future updates to the mod that will include additional landmark forts elsewhere in the WOFF landscape.

Cheers All!

Lou

Lou! What a lovely Christmas scene you have made for us. I can't say that I've modded WOFF before but I am definitely going to have to try your forts - they look phenomenal.

A very Merry Christmas to you and yours, my friend.

Cheers!
