Pilot viewpoint mod is obsolete. Use WOFF UE Multimod 1.7 for view point settings - you can set pilot viewpoint (zoom) in or out as you wish.

This will be another off topic rookie question but I had my most glorious career so far come to a sad ending while diving down on a DFW.CV. I came in so high and fast, felt I delivered a solid burst before the tail gunner could even shoot but one quick burst from him delivered amazing accuracy to my chest and died lol. I have not had luck anytime I engage these fellas any tips or strategy on how to achieve the best probablilty of success? Should I always try to attack from underneath ? Sorry I’m sure this is a really novice question but have done great against fighters so far but am ignorant to the beat strategy against these rear gunner huns?

Cheers

Bunny

Bunny,

I feel your pain. Behind and below works, but it will be hard to avoid drawing up level and getting hit. Target fixation happens easily. I've had good fortune with attacks from 10 or 2 o'clock, where the enemy's own wings shield you from his gunner. Aim well ahead and let the 2 seater fly through your stream of bullets.

Yes attack from low on the two seater's six. Come in close and then pop up just enough to rake his belly. It will take practice because it is very easy to come up too far and get nailed by the gunner. Anothere option is to come at him from a 20 degree angle head on and then dive down under his nose and stay low so the rear gunner can't get you. No matter how you call it, two seater's are hell if they have skilled pilots and gunners. The skill level varies though, so watch how he reacts.

Best Regards

Jjj I can’t seem to find the “multi mod 1.7” where is it exactly ? Also the cloud mods I haven’t tried yet and was looking to give a go. Any recommendations on which mod to use and will it possibly slow my gameplay or stutter ? Are they pretty taxing on the cpu? Once again apologies for so many questions haha

You can select a skin in the briefing room (custom skin option) before any mission. You can change it every single time if desired. The last skin selected will stay in effect for all future missions until your pilot gets assigned to a new plane.

You did download the free skin pack, didn't you? It's not included in the installation of the game. It must be separately downloaded and installed after the game has been installed.


Regarding cloud mods - definitely try Buckeye Bob's very impressive cloud mod. It provides a wide variety of sky conditions and doesn't affect FPS or stutters at all, as far as I can tell.

Bunny;

THe following mods are Java based and so do not use JSGME. If you have any questions about these mods contact JJJ65 by PM as he is the Java expert who programmed them, and they are phenominal even if I do say so myself.

WOFF UE Mission Editor (can be found on the mods page in the "Tools" section)

The following mods can only be found in separate locations in the "Mods" forum. If you can't find them, contact JJJ65 directly by PM as I stated above.
WOFF UE Encyclopedia
WOFF UE Pilot Log Editor
WOFF UE Multimod
WOFF UE FM Roll damp patcher

You will need the latest version of Java installed (i think minimum of Java version 8). JJJ65 can help you with any questions on this.

Hope this helps.

Multimods here Bunny.. PS..you need Java installed http://SimHQ.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/4348058/woff-ue-multimod#Post4348058

I personally recommend Buckeyebobs optional clouds mod (ver 2.8) (i dont use any of 4LOMS cloud mods) there are people that do use them though mate
Also the Consolidated Custom Facilities mod is a must have.
Ground Season Textures ver 2.0 by 4LOM is another one i use
New Effects Mod ver 1.10 by 4LOM
News mod ver 4.5 by 77scout
Mk-1W Bomb Sights (Version 1.4)Created by:'JJJ65'(based of original by 'RAF_Louvert')

All the above can be found on the mods page Dont forget the JSGME Mod Enabler utility (Version 2.6.0) which is brilliant to swap in/out mods And Roberts invaluble User Files Backup Utility(Version 1.5) Also found on the mods page
Hope this gets you started pal



Edit: Robert beat me to it regarding the Multimod and Java...the mission editor is a brilliant piece of work i never fly a campaign mission without using it
Regarding performance issues i dont see any personnally with a I7 4790K CPU i suppose it depends on your CPU mate

I use IrfanView. It is free. You can just scan through them one after another.

There are also mods with custom skins available on the mods page. All these skins are in ".dds" format, so any program that can handle ".dds" will work. Personally I agree with hoongadoonga that "irfanview" is the best I have found.

Welcome Bunny! As has been said, starting in an early war campaign is really more about simply getting off the ground, flying, looking around, trying to complete your mission, finding your home airbase and getting your crate and yourself down in as few pieces as possible...Don't worry, you'll die soon enough.... salute
