Robert, congratulations to your WOFF Military Cross!
Guys, I can't take any medals away from you all, which you have received in WOFF.
They will all remain in your logs, and there you own them.

The DiD awarding system is something to be regarded like a "parallel awarding universe",
where you can also receive the same medals, but were the valuation is different.

But Lou and I are discussing that right now - the DiD awards mean a lot of work for him,
and we are wondering, if you guys wouldn't be even happier with the WOFF awards as they
come in the sim.

I like the idea of Lou's awards for DiD time and hope they stay.

I'd like to see the other awards stay too, but can understand both sides, pro & con.


Aarik Bachmeier took out a balloon on a balloon busting mission that he was tasked with leading. We took a back door approach and didn't run into any enemy planes with all of us surviving the mission.

Good flying, best of luck to you in your new fighter!

Olham, I am reminded of how much Lou has contributed to DID every time I fly and look at his wonderful map. If it is getting to burdensome for him, we can live with the WOFF medals. Easy for me to say, The only one I will ever get is the hospital stripe.

If Lou's parallel medals are eliminated, I hope this doesn't throw a monkey wrench in Jim's survey as he will need to add in a question about medals.

Bombing Nieuwmunster airfield? Well, I can tell you there's only one pilot and his observer there, along with one shot up Aviatik. Try again tomorrow, we should have some new replacements by then. biggrin

I'm probably never going to get any medals in MFFA 2, but if Lou feels like it's too much work to keep a separate awards system for our DID campaign, then I'm sure we can all live with the system already in place in WOFF. That being said, I think the awards made by Lou are gorgeous! smile

For my last mission/sortie I changed the air activity to 'light' which is allowed according to the rules. We set off to attack a railway yard led by Major Lanoe Hawker with A flight along for the ride. I fired about 170 rounds with 74% accuracy so it says and we never saw an EA! So I didn't have to do my 'going home for tea' bit. winkngrin

Don't know Piedro, but I will let you know as I will be the 1st one there. Good luck on your "B" pilot.

Attacking buildings usually improves your overaal shooting accuracy ! They are faily large and don't move... wink

For the "light" activity, I would say it is not only allowed, it is also strongly advised !

How did you manage to get a pilot number 0 (zero)? I have 12 mostly deceased but they run from 1 to 12.

I also notice that you and I both have the date in the future. This is normally caused by having the 'auto date' set on instead of 'auto/manual'. What happened to me was that I installed a new version of WOFF on my SSD and forgot to change the settings in the workshop - and I didn't notice that the date was advancing. It will come right in a couple of days.

Good eyes, Jim! Carrick, pls stop flying, until you caught up with the date, okay?
I like that little Teddy Bear - but how can he work the rudder pedals?

When posting our pilot pages after completing the last mission of the day, the date will have advanced to tomorrow's date. It's not necessarily an indication that anyone is flying ahead of the current date, just how it works out.
