Been real busy in RL + this time of year is always busy with house/yard stuff. With all that said I have decided to make today a WOFF day as it’s going to be hot. Been a while since I treated myself. Love this game.

With all that preamble out of the way what career is everyone doing right now?

Trying to decide which to lead off with: 56 Squadron (Se5’s), 1 or 60 Squadron (N17’s), or J11 (Alb DIII’s).
Of course I have many, many more Squadron/Jasta/Aircraft favorites but I don’t want to bite off more then I can chew!

German, September 2016, Jasta 8, currently flying a Halberstadt. Other planes are Fokker E IVs.

Here's a save of my boring looking Halberstadt.

Seems like we have a lot of “early air war” (pre-1917) fans here.
Why Jasta 8? And good luck!

But no skins!
Yes I have always wanted to try the Bentley in campaign mode. Checked all the RFC-RAF squads and none used it - only the RNAS -RAF units.

Sadly no flying for me recently.
My Pit is totally disassembled for staining/painting... why did I make so many pieces...

Getting her ready for WW1 Rendezvous in Dayton.

Before this I was flying a Snipe campaign.

Guess I am the only one who does the “famous” squadrons. Usually do the old “Hat in the Ring” for that time and nationality. Course I am probably one of the few who like the N28 too!

one pilot in the DID challenge, which will soon be over.

Mostly SH3 these days for me. Sort of lost the flying bug after years of playing.

SH3 is an awesome game. Currently have it installed and have spent many an hour on it.

Skipping the end of the 'DID Challenge' thing, as it's too late in the war for me. I've started my own series of careers for the 104th anniversary, as it was August 3rd when Germany declared war on France. I have two careers running so far, one French and one British, both using the January 1915 campaign start but using Single Combat scenarios to represent August 1914. When I get caught up to 1915 I'll start the actual campaigns.


Some people are born stupid. I've had to work hard my whole life to get this way. I'm proud of the job I've done

Duke, maybe I should try SH3. Is it the best of the series in your opinion?

Cheers

hard one to answer. Check out subsim forum where this question has been gone through many times now.

I play sh3 because its well modded and easy to play.

SH3 is certainly well modded and a great game. The graphics (least your crew) is starting to look a bit dated.
Easy to play? Dunno. Guess it all depends on your settings and mods. Try manual torpedo calculation and shooting!

SH4 is another excellent choice and equally mod supported. Graphics are better. Both games have a dedicated and active following. If I had more time I would be playing both a lot.

SH5 I have not tried nor even looked much into. It was a departure from the previous “game style” (may have been modded since then though) and the online requirement (now gone I believe) made it DOA for me in addition to all the great stuff being release for 3 and 4. Didn’t figure it could get much better.

Oh. You can get both SH3 and SH4 on Steam for about 20 bucks IIRC.
I have them both on disc of course but bought them again on Steam just for the convenience.

Thank you sir. I will investigate SH4 on Steam. There seem to be a few tasty supermods available smile

oh, and apologies for slightly derailing your thread Duke smile

I'm flying an N11 in Escadrille VB 103, based at Malzeville, south of Verdun, currently in May 1916. It's a super airfield location, perched on top of a hill, surrounded by other hills and valleys. It always takes me a while to settle into a new pilot career. I usually start and stop several before one finally fits my mood and grabs my interest.
