Hello Gentlemen

I have been a member of Sim HQ off and on for the last seven plus years under different screen names on various sites for different sims during those years. I’m not one to reaaly post a lot of messages on the various topics in threads of interest but enjoy reading what everyone had to say about anything to do with those other various sims and now subsequently WOFF. I am an old Flight Sim player stetching back to Red Baron, Red Baron II/3D, Wings of Glory, Etc...I just left playing Rise of Flight I/C with Pat Wilson’s campaign generator for single player campaigning, which was quite excellent that is until I purchased WOFF UE plus the aircraft skin download and Mat Milne’s great music for this Sim. This was around 6 months ago. I just want to say that this Sim is just lights out fantastic in every which way!! Those words just don’t do it justice. I find myself drawn to it like a moth to a flame every day always wanting more!! It’s the best sim out there as far as I’m concerned. I’m currently flying a campaign with 66 Sqdn in March 1917 and preparing to enter bloody April!! My pilot has been blooded and tasted victory 3 times during March, so I head into this upcoming month of April with much optimism of getting out alive relatively in one piece. I’m hoping to lift some ale in a pub with some mates on leave in London to regale one another, not so much as to our glorious victories but just how lucky we were to survive and continue on....As always I find great assistance from everyone here when reading posted threads on fixing issues; New Mods, wish lists etc to make WOFF even better..if that is even possible. The banter and sense of humour from everyone is quite top notch!! I look forward to reading and now partaking in discussions plus posting the odd thread. On that note Gentlemen I take leave of your fine company until the next time!!

Cheers!!

Deej

Welcome to the WOFF Ready Room sir!
Sounds like you have plenty of game experience already but, if you should have any questions, please ask away.
Plenty of like-minded fans here who love the sim (I sure do!) and are more then willing to give you a hand.
Again, a hearty Welcome aboard!

And a hearty welcome from me as well! Glad to have you join the Squad!

Like Duke said, any questions or assistance needed, you will have no problem finding answers if you post your issues. This is by far, the greatest bunch of forum members I have ever had the chance to interface with.

Oh, and as our dear forum member RAF_Louvert would say, the new man buys a round of virtual drinks for the forum members! Soooo, I will jump in here and order three fingers of Balvenie 16, thank you very much!
Three cheers for the new man and I raise my glass in recognition!!

Best Regards

I'm peripheral, pop in once in a while to read up...or when I break something and need help.

Can affirm what has already been said; a group not often found on the internet today.

Welcome.

Welcome to camp Deej, glad to have you with us! From the sounds of it you are already quite round the bend for our favorite WWI combat flight sim so you should fit right in. As Robert has most importantly pointed out, new lads buy the drinks, and to that end I'll have three fingers of the Aberfeldy 21 and a pint of Guinness on the side.

Cheers Deej, and watch your six!

Lou

Deej, welcome to the fray. Always glad to see new folks for the grinder. Red Baron 3D, those were the days. I’ll be a bit generic, George Dickie with Sprite, heavy on the Sprite. Oh, and just a short squeeze of lemon.

Gentlemen please keep partaking in drinks until my wallet achieves its proper state of thinness!! My sincerest thanks for having included me in your fine lot! Cheers friends!!
I’ve instructed the barkeep to keep the tab open and drinks flowing accordingly and upon my return square up said tab! As I finish my last Guiness I take leave of you fine gentlemen!! Stay thirsty my friends!!

Welcome indeed to the meat grinder Deej. You've come across arguably the best single player sim ever created.
Combine this with this brilliant forum and your onto a winner.
Any question no matter how trivial it may seem will almost always be answered by one of us.
Enjoy also some of the great mods that really enhance this incredible sim.
While your buying il try a Guinness with a neat Jack Daniels chaser thumbsup cheers

Deej, Adjer, I like it that you're Guiness men! I've been a near teetotaller all my life, and never had much of a liking for beer at all, which fro a man with a much Irish as I have seems a bit odd. The I was at one of these snobby beer places with my boss, and they had nice, fresh Guiness on tap, and I found the only beer to date that I like. But it MUST be fresh, mind you!

Funny thing about Guinness. I never cared much for it. I tried it bottled and canned here in Canada, but when I was over in Ireland a couple of years ago, I had more than a few pints of it and it was quite delicious. Decidedly better than here at home. I asked about it when I was there and the reply I always got is that "It doesn't travel well" and that the "Irish water" is key to the taste. I am still perplexed by that experience.
