Let me know what you think.

It's great to know my first day out of hospital will be the first flyable day from what I've been told of the weather forecast. This way I don't loose too much time on other competitors ! yep
In the meantime nurses take care of me...

And I hope I get wounded soon so I can meet your nurse wounded

Was just a bit unsure as how to proceed since I didn't see the "A"pilot listed as DID on the summary board. All's good now; new pilot is enlisted already.

Hi Lou, what we maybe need is a 'Dead' and bar medal. When one of your pilots is 'deceased' you get the medal, and get a bar for every one that follows! Maybe the medal should have a skull on it!

Just the luck, Rain today. No rest for the wicket , I was made Supply dog so off to the farmers for eggs and maybe cheese. Speaking of LMF heard a good one about a Fee driver (18 Sqn ?) being chased by 2 fokkers. seems his own flight did not engage they were 3 NM in the distance so the chap drove over under a flight of DH 2,s 29 Sqn) and they didn't engage as well. The chap made a forced landing (wrecking his bus) to finally escape.

Hmmm, correct me if I'm wrong Jim, but I think the idea is to try and stay alive. winkngrin

Oh, I do, I do! But I don't see my first 'A' pilot lasting much longer. It's tough out there for us newbie pilots. 6 sorties so far, forced down and ditched, for the rest I run for it!

Based on the DID simming philosophy and mindset, sorties can get really intense..at least for me :>)

My first pilot died and crashed simply because one of the rear guns jammed. Two N 11's I think, sitting on our tail firing away but on on the side of the jammed gun. Between frantically switching guns and going in and out of rear view auto to try and get away, I completely forgot to which key I mapped the un-jam button! So here is my flyer being shot up, while pressure and confusion ruled..engine get hit, quits and down he goes..DID!

This will usually get you killed fairly quickly; just my opinion. The AI rear gunner is very good, and best to leave him to it. I stick entirely to the cockpit and fly the plane ... we are supposed to be re-living the pilot's experience after all. Besides not messing up the immersion by switching characters mid flight, I like to think that my skills are best used in maneuvering the plane to give the gunner a clear shot and dodge the enemy. Also ... no worries about pushing the wrong button (grin).

I have come to expect such excellent work from you Lou. Fantastic. Also like the fact that you recognize the "Organizers and Contributor" as without them we would not be having so much fun!

Lou, these medals look just stunning! Excellent, beautiful works of art, Sir!

Now I don't know about a medal for the making of the campaign - I'd feel a bit embarrassed,
but maybe you didn't have me in mind, but the devs? They sure would deserve them!
Or perhaps - as you are a contributor - you wanted to make sure you would at least receive
this medal? Mmuahahahahaaa!!!
Me, I'd just be happy if I could make it to the 25 or 50 hours ones.
Thanks a lot for the fine work !

Olham, in campaigns I've worked on in past years it has been common practice to recognize all those who contributed to the organizing and running of the event. And yes I definitely had you in mind, along with Jim and the entire dev team, and no you should not feel embarrassed about receiving such recognition. It is well deserved.

They would be nice to see as an avatar under your photos guys or at the bottom of your postings. Just a thought. With all the fine work put into the medals, it would be a shame to not have them constantly visible.

Oh, by the way Lou. knowing how judicious you are about small details, I'm sure you have an answer for my next question. Just what is the meaning of the colours on the medals ribbons?

OK Olham, deal.

Robert, I do have an answer. Three of the five countries' air services that flew on the Western Front had red, white, and blue in their markings. One had black and white, and the other had red, gold, and black. All are represented, with the amount of each color apportioned appropriately.
