I see that WOTR has an additional workshop option for Player Flight position. "Never Lead"

We definitely need that for WOFF.

Enjoying the new "grassy airfields" feature in patch 1.36 -- might I recommend also adding grass to the odd meadow, field, etc., to make the transition from smooth fields to grassy airfields less jarring. No need to add grass everywhere but broader presence of grass will help with landscape realism and variety. Capability Brown thanks you in advance.

Good landscape cultivation to all in WoFF,

~ For my various FM/AI/FPS/DM Mods. for First Eagles 2, WoFF, RoF & WoTR, and tips for FlightGear, recommended is to check over my CombatAce profile (https://combatace.com/profile/86760-vons/) and to click on the "About Me" tab while there. ~

Wish list for new WOFF Expansion: A way to turn the ground war down in later years (1917 -1918) so that when approaching and flying over the front lines, there is less of a FPS hit, similar to how there is an option to reduce Air Activity from Heavy down to Medium, Light and Very Light options. Only the Devs know if this is possible or if the increased ground war is what is even responsible for the dip in FPS around the front lines...but that is my speculation and hope.

Another wish if it could be done - when set to Easy claims, it lists the actual make and model of aircraft shot down.

In the next expansion, I wish it were possible to make the top wing guns for N17s, SE5as, etc to be able to be fired at different angles as they get lowered and raised.

This was posted earlier:

"When your pilot dies, I'd like to have the option to continue playing as one of the computer-generated wingmen currently assigned to your dead pilot's squadron."

If possible:

I would like to add to this by actually having an option to be the replacement pilot assigned/reassigned to the unit that you were in at the time of your death. One could then maintain a type of campaign function with that specific unit moving forward with the same NPC's and thier corresponding records.

Exactly that's already in ;-)

Thanks Creaghorn, just jumping back into WOFF after a lifetime away. I will have to research this to see how to go about it.

In Pilot Dossier menu, scroll through pilots to the deceased one you would like to be a replacement pilot for, then under the pilot's page, click "re-enlist".

Would it be possible to make a mod that would allow you to lower the windscreen so you can see where you're flying and to land. It would make things easier. I looked in the settings and didn't see anything labled 'Enter-W'. Just a thought.


We used to have the Nieuport 17 and 11 windows open/close, however it's not compatible with the oil on windscreen effect anyway now, so unfortunately no we can't do that.

Well you can't quite but you can re-enlist as a new replacement pilot in the same squadron with same people around you (see two posts above this one).

Not sure I've ever posted in the Wish List thread before but two items came to mind...

1) It would be amazing to be able to save a mission mid-flight. Now that I'm older and RL is increasingly chaotic, I've had to abandon more missions than I can count due to needing to take care of something. A mid-sortie save would be incredibly helpful, or barring that, a way to abort a mission.
2) It would be great if we could listen to Matt's beautiful soundtrack mid-flight. I know it's not super realistic and I do enjoy making my flights as challenging as possible, but the atmosphere he adds is too good to pass up.

Cheers guys!

Doing the reading the other day, an idea occurred to me.

In BHH2, if your plane crashes, you die.

There are a number of incidents recorded where the pilot survived an almost certain death.

Sideslipping a burning aircraft to fan the flames away from his body, sometimes even putting them out.

Unfastening the safety harness and putting your feet in the seat, so that when the plane hits the ground, you fly out like a cannon ball and have some chance of surviving.

Even jumping out just before the aircraft hits the ground.

How about a random chance of surviving an almost certain death?

With a lot of luck, you actually *can* put out the flames on your plane:

I found quite by accident if you end the mission before you smack into the ground quite often you will survive. Also if you manage to land and exit before the plane stops rolling you may survive. The latter may be the equivalent of a Jerbear ejection wink
