a shack in da woods
SW of Buhl-Lorraine, just before the 1st RR tracks, hill top grass land patch, I'll light a bonfire.

Edit....just double checked my directions, no RR tracks, just a road.

Look for a wooded patch and a finger of a lake pointing to it




Inclined slope, land uphill



I'll start a fire near the hilltop.

The shack is in the woods...a short walk away.
HAHA.. sweet pic, Olham

Hope you brought your Gewehr 98 for deer hunting in the evening.
Fresh fish from the Lake, berries, and fresh baked bread are all I've to eat. Plenty of drinks at the shack

Edit about RR...The RR tracks run from the North side of Buhl-Lorraine and split the gap between the lake and the wooded spot.

Grilled fish should be fine!

Gee, tomorrow the hospital time AND the bad weather will be over for me,
and I will be able to fly again!

The pics I last posted are from this DiD mission today.

I bumped up to 85% fuel for me
The weatherman must be a morphine addict. Stupid weather for flying.
We made our way down there until the Hauptmann change course and we flew home. No enemy contact.

Congratulations to our flyers RAF_Louvert, Scout_77, Maeran, Corsaire and lederhosen -
you guys can be regarded as aces!
Lou, you are heading straight for the British equivalent for the "Blue Max", it seems (did they have any equivalent?).

TO ALL PILOTS

Gentlemen, we cannot change the LEVEL during one pilot's life, like Carrick did (from C to B).
The reason is simply, because this change would suddenly valuate your points differently,
which you had flown under easier conditions.
So, Carrick, your pilot will remain on LEVEL C. Only if he should fall, and you
then enlist a new feller, then you can choose a different LEVEL (and also a different
nationality, if anyone wants).

Gentlemen, here is the Sunday chart for 13 July.

Lou should get the VC because he has so many kills and it's only July 1916.

A DSO may be proper at this point, but I think the VC would be a bit premature. I do appreciate you looking after me though Hasse. smile2

I think that we're going to see historically inflated victory scores for the remainder of the year.
The behaviour of the AI is more appropriate to 1918 than 1916. I usually seem to be flying in 4+ flights and meeting similarly large groups of Eindeckers.

The AI is quite aggressive so it is often a case of kill or be killed. I have only been the attacker in one of my victories.

The greater chance of being killed in 1917-18 will even things out.

Thanks, Jim, you were right - sorry, Piedro!
I have made me a stencil for your screen capture, Jim, which I use to go through all the pilots in the graphic
chart, and for changing their values. But I totally missed the thought, that a new pilot might be in there.
Geeze - how many mistakes can a single man make???

I'll work on it later today.

I had to add another row in the sheet and make sure it was correct - that all the other rows stayed right. He is of course the first new pilot we have had since the start.

Congrats to Germany on the footy match. I only watched half of it. Like Brazil supporters I was on Germany's side, mainly because I didn't want the Argies to win. I still haven't forgiven Maradona for that 'hand of God' thing. Blatant cheat and proud of it.

Carrick, as I said - next pilot could be in a different LEVEL, okay?

Welcome over Flanders fields, Piedro - hadn't seen you here before.
I hope you like it!

And welcome to the DiD Campaign, Robert - I wish you all the best o'luck!

I flew two missions today. The first one was a bombing attack against British trenches, and we were even assigned a flight of Eindeckers from SK Sachsenberg as escorts!

Weather was terrible, and I think that is what saved us from all the usual trouble. We didn't see any hostile aircraft and apparently they didn't see us either, because the all too common slaughter in the clouds didn't happen in this mission.

I think the main reason for those extremely bloody missions I've experienced in my DID campaign is that the AI pilots see too well and behave too aggressively, as was already mentioned earlier in this thread. This also probably explains the ahistorically high kill numbers we're seeing in the DID campaign; another thing is that we have the tactical formations and doctrines of 1918 in the summer of 1916, which also results in a bloodier and more dangerous environment.

My second mission was a recon flight, but it was cut short only a few minutes after taking off by engine trouble, which forced me to land and end the mission prematurely.

A whole day without casualties in MFFA 2! I'm happy. smile
