Didn't we used to do Rick Rawlings Challenges? Well, I can say that the new one continues apace... but for reasons both esoteric and just teric, the going is slow. I am working on it however:

I guess the good news is that this is the last one I will be making a full intro for, I have successfully scratched that itch, it seems, so subsequent challenges should appear at more regular intervals. Perhaps even...*gasp* two per year!

Carry on...
salute

Edit: I also don't know how to use the new image tools, obviously... duh

yayyy! Not only a new Rick_Rawlings challenge, but new textures and shaders, too, by the looks of it...! And a new prototype model Be_2...H? or is that an RE-8Q? It looks like the obs. is in the back.

The upper plane is in the way to properly distinguish the pilot and Obs, but it is quickly getting close to that time of year that one might expect to see Snoopy in the cockpit aye what?

It's my (bad) attempt at a "Harry Tate", and 80 men tried and 80 men died and they are buried together in the countryside...because their RE 8s got them killed!

Basically, U fly a in a unit, Missions, from an AF, under conditions that some one else has chosen. I have never made thru any of Mr. Rawlings challenges,but always had a lot of fun. The challenges also gave me a lot experience in cashing and burning including running into a few Trees.

They're great fun and an honor sytem free for all....but a great opportunity to measure yourself against friends (here) and foe (here). Love to see another one Rick......they were marvellous. My prize....second place, years ago, was a skin which I still fly today. Thx

I can testify that these are a lot of fun. I'm still using the skin that Lou designed for me after winning the Albatros Dos challenge.

Don’t start without me! I need some time to get back from my vacation. Rick, are we flying Harry’s? This is going to be a slaughter!

AHHHHHHRRRRGGGGGHHHH! Um, it's still a bit off. I had a brief bout of Silent Hunter 5 that I am in the middle of recuperating from... *cough* and no, it's not Re8s, communism was just a red herring!

*edit: I'm sure it will show up just in time to screw up Robert's hunting season... duckhunter duh

Howdy, been awhile....

Game crashed one day, and I explored the CFS3 underneath and became caught up in WWII....and building balsa tissue rubber powered airplanes...and just living life.
Think I might uninstall and reinstall WOFF, but probably not compete with you folks...if I'm up and running I'll ghost play, and probably die quickly from lack of practice/familiarity with the sim..

Just dropped in to say hello, rumors of my demise were exaggerated, somewhat...lol
