Direct x 11 got my vote. But more planes would be nice. Italian and Eastern fronts? Yawn.

Hellshade, you have one glaring omission on your list of choices: le Aviation Militaire Belge. GASP!!!

I'd really love to see the aircraft that are noted as missing from squadrons in the game, such as the FK8, Dolphin, Siemens-Schuckert, etc.

Eastern front, NO, no market for this front, we all see the disaster on the Sikorsky WW1 game, no buyer for this front.
Italian front, sure I would like to see, but also here to much effort and no extra buyers, then ok here a go again: better to go for the Belgium air force. :-)

More planes, lots of planes already, to keep the effort for OBD low, I do prefer as
-] There are planes listed in red when using squad deployment in the campaign mode and of course I would like to see those planes in the game, but I wonder if we can use substitutes added to get rid of that red not to be use planes.
-] Go for easy meal: introduce the engine variants, think of the SPAD scouts or as a base the SPAD two seaters. Combine the D7 wings and the Dr1 fuselage to create the Fokker D6 as a sample.
Zeppelin, I think it is rather boring to fly this object, so I think no extra buyers despite lots of effort it will cost.

Multiplayer, I can not remember that the OFF3 multiplayer was crowded, but time do change and maybe new players do like it, I do not know, for me only limited use so a NO only from me.

So yeah, voted #1, but if converting, Ankor, why not skip DirectX11 and go straight for the last DirectX12, the few Win7 users could stay to DirectX9, eventually they have to move to Win10-64bit.

High over the Front
Whew. This was tough.
Of course we need more planes: Sopwith Dolphin, Alb 2-seaters, etc.
Of course we need DX 11 with 3d clouds. Bet FPS would go up.
But ultimately I chose “Other” as I would like to see the Campaign Engine fine tuned a bit: 3 flights for the Allies, Flight and Kette integrity, better mission waypoint selection, better AI (not tougher but smarter), etc.

I’ll pay for all of the above though except multiplayer and Eastern/Italian fronts. You can keep those thank you.

Agree with Duke, but voted before I read his response.
This was tough, was in the same train of thought.

But Voted for DX11 and Clouds (but not VR) as the cloud flicker is now the biggest graphic issue after removal of the blue triangle.
There are so many planes now, it is hard to enjoy them all, but would like to see a few of the missing ones.
And agree that while the AI is great, it seems to have a few quirks.

No interest in Italian or Eastern Front.
No interest in flyable Zeps.
Single Player is WOFF's claim to fame - Unless it can have some sort of on going war, co-op missions, etc, I see no point in competing with ROF/FC in Multiplayer.

As noted, I would love to see some of our more glaring gaps filled - Alb C class, Halb CLII, LVG CV, Roland DVI, Pfalz DXII, Shorthorn, Gunbus, Dolphin, Big Ack, Noop X two-seater, SPAD XI, Salmson
And, continue adding to the landscape with aerodromes, landmarks, iconic structures and towns.
Cheers,

We will remember them.

X2.. my exact thoughts (surprised? LOL!). There are a ton more planes that can be added to fill- in and expand the sim further... and yes. The Belgian Air Force is a must with the Hanriot HD-1 required.

Not an easy vote. I chose more planes because there are still some important gaps to fill in.
But another option (If possible) Would be multi-core cpu support. This way the heavier air activity would become playable with less stuttering. Dont think multiplayer Would have enough players to support it. And italian and eastern front? Think its better to finish the western front first.

Just voted for DX11 and volumetric clouds gents', although there is something charming about the flat, intersecting clouds currently in use too. My no. 2 vote would go for more plane types, with a distant third vote for Italian/Eastern fronts - not much need for those since there isn't as much interest in them. Don't get me wrong - I love my obscure theaters and strange aircraft but RB3D and more recently FE2 already more than cover those obscure fronts - and WOFFue seems to be more western-front based anyway so it's best that it focuses on further development in areas where it excels. Speaking of more aircraft types, what happened with some (beta) tests that were happening to import the Morane-Saulnier type N from FE2 into WOFFue? Any news on that front?...I think there was some testing of Longhorn/Shorthorn types as well....

Happy flying,
Von S smile2

I’m so torn. I really want to welcome that third decade of the Twenty-First Century with new graphics in WoFF afforded by DX11, but I’m sceptical about those 3D clouds. Every other sim I’ve seen that uses them doesn’t look that great. Just a shapeless mass of cotton. I’m more excited about all other things that DX11 could do better. Better smoke and more of it. Imagine entire section of front covered with columns of smoke, with little impact on frame rate. Mustard gas. Animated rain droplets on the windscreen that leave streaks. Better bullet trails with that vortex rifling effect. Better fire effects. The possibilities are endless, but I went with new selection of airplanes. I don’t care about the Zeps, or driving them. The new airplanes don’t even have to be flyiable. I’m more interested in a greater range of targets. The number and selection of planes is WoFF’s strength. Besides, why couldn’t we have DX11 and eat it too? While AnKor performs magic with the graphics, core OBD team could concentrate on the planes. What’s wrong with that?

The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,
From out of my arse take the camshaft,

A legitimate concern - personally I don't mind the WOFFue clouds at all, they seem to have volume but are very crisp too - in FE2 we have DX10 clouds (volumetric) and it has been a pain trying to get them to look realistic finally (semi-transparent, varied, etc.) - previously they were like the cotton balls you mention.

All the 3D clouds I've ever seen in any flight game other than WOFF look like "#@*&".

I fly through 3D clouds in WOFF all the time (I have cloud fog" on), and they look fine just as they are (they actually look like paintings)

If OBD is going to put **** 3D volumetric clouds in the next version of WOFF, I sure hope they give us the option of keeping the excellent clouds we have now.

I too voted for more planes. So many two-seaters to be had, The SPAD A.2 is an oddball favorite, as well as the XI and XVI. Vickers Gunbus, Altabros C.I, C.III, C.V and C.VII,


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

I voted for online play.

This has to be the most important thing in my view. We have enough planes ( never enough ) etc, but it would be great if we could actualy wage war together.
