...trying to get a detailed AAR.
This was a QC in free flight:

did you do this by hand or does WOFF have a feature that charts your path with comments??

WOFF produces a quantity of data, recording the flight path of the player and various events. I'm writing a little program that should allow the player to display such data after each mission.
The image shown is a preliminary result; there's still quite a bit of work to do, but we're getting there smile

Hey Nibbio, that looks amazing! You're fulfilling one of my wish list items I had made. Actually, I'd like to read the AAR instead of viewing it. That way, if it spits out a text file that would pre-fill a combat report template, I can just edit it a bit to include inside my logbook.

I know, it was also one of my wish list items smile

As for the text file, it could be done, although the info would likely be a little sparse and impersonal. OTOH a picture is worth a thousand words, you can zoom and pan and then, if you want, you can save it for future reference. Trust me, it's way cool cool

This is terrific modding! Who wouldn't enjoy seeing their actual flight path in a mission?!!!

I would love to see this implemented as a mod, or even better as a modder-dev work. It is saying, RB3D and "can be done" way too loud to be neglected.

Nibbio;

Would you consider adding the time stamp to the significant items you record on the map. I know it's in the file.
It would greatly enhance the concept of time passing and when things happened. I agree with you. I have been looking at those files and there is a plethora of info there to play with. I wish there was a way to have access to all that info before putting a claim in. I also wish there was a way to fill out a mission report as part of the pilot log in which much of this info could be noted where pertinent. I may just add all this to a wish list for WOFF's future. If I had the programming skills I would tackle it right away.

Best Regards;

Guys, this feature was already in OFF; not sure why it was left out of WOFF;
maybe it wasn't used much; or the performance was needed for something else -
sorry, nibbio.
You could see your course drawn, and everything that had happened during
your sortie. Even kills appart from your own ones were assigned with little
symbols.

Little test: can you figure out what happened in this mission?
(on the right hand side is the alt scale in metres, x and y axis units are in km, the thin black line is the frontline)



couple of zoom views:

In OFF you had a "Replay" button. When you pressed it,
you would see the course line being scribbled bit by bit.
It stopped at every event and you received a text like
"Player, flying Albatros D.III, fired 50 rounds at Nieuport N 23".
You could zoom in, and replay it.

Yeah, that would be great! As I said, I put it in the wishlist for WOFF.
In the meantime...

Well, I based on summarization from all three pics, I would say you have been in combat and hit by rounds from a FE2b, and I'm surmising that you were forced down by damage or fuel loss at which point you came a cropper on a fence.

What do I win if I'm correct??

Maybe you could win a crappy little piece of software, hastily patched together, that should allow us to analyze mission events and performance biggrin

1) took off from Bertincourt in an Halberstadt, leading a flight of Albatros DII, and headed NE
2) as soon as we turned NW, after about 7 minutes of flight, 2 DIIs collided and crashed somewhere in the vicinity
3) we followed the waypoints climbing steadily and circled over the patrol destination, S of the river, at about 3500m for about 20 minutes
4) then descended to 2500m and went N towards Bapaume
5) 15 minutes later we met 2 FE2b North of Bapaume at about 2000 m, heading West; attacked from the rear left, scored some good hits on e/a #2B, but #2A shot down my engine
6) after shooting some more towards #2A, with engine dead, I turned right and searched for a good place to land towards the East
7) as I was trying to line up with the road, my a/c stalled (the little arrows are a representation of the velocity vectors, short length of the arrows indicates slow speed) and fell like a brick. Dead.

Didn't we say that a picture was worth a 1000 words? smile
