Welcome to the World of WOFF, CodeRed.
I guess with "mission mods" you mean any aids being left out of the A-category of this DiD Campaign?
Well, they are LABELS, TAC (kind of radar), additional gauges and other aides,
and they simply don't belong to a 100% WW1-simulating flying, which the A-category is meant to be.

Are you flying WOFF already, or just visiting?

Funny, that we have no French pilots at all - they have the better planes (Nieuports) against the Germans.
What happened to the French patriotism? I almost feel tempted to start a French carreer if my pilot should
fall. (Well, almost - I'd have to give up my Albatros for that). And no Americans either.

Jim, my addition of the pilots nationalities makes 14 pilots - where are the other 2 flying?
I hope you only send me the chart tomorrow - I'd like to make 2 more sorties today - I need to cross the
20-hour-mark.

Olham, I am like the Russian counting his cows - every time I do it I get different numbers! Time to open another bottle of vodka cheers I will take the last chart tomorrow morning Berlin and Joburg time. This should be about midnight US time so everyone can get their answers for Sunday in. You can then do the chart and publish Monday or Tuesday.

Yes you can, but only one under your SimHQ ID 'lederhosen'. If you want to do this you would have to register again here on SimHQ under a different ID.

The reason is that the results are compiled on your ID and not the pilot's name.

Olham,
yes, I bought the game and addons, but I'm a casual flight simmer. I like the slow dogfights that WW1 provides and this sim is perfect.

I was actually referring to "MISSION TYPES by BLETCHLEY" since these are only text files, they seem harmless enough not to break anything.

Great, thank you Jim!

lederhosen - no, sorry; so far it's one pilot per player.
Everyone should be fully focused on the survival of this pilot.
If we had several pilots, that concentration might be slipping,
and we wouldn't handle our pilots with the same care.
Like: dies the French, I still have the German.

The posibilty to change the nationality is just a sugar cube for us, when we lose our flyer.

I dont think it would be a good idea anyway (having multiple DID Pilots). Was toying with the idea of a French one but when I saw just how few aircraft they had at start I said non. Was going to start a Hun one but didn't. Anyway, I never thought Basel would get this far, and now I don't want him going west either.

Lederhosen, the war will be long, and you should carry on with good little Basel.
One day he may fall, and then it may still be time to go French.

The following flyers have crossed the 25-hour-mark and are thereby recipients of the "DiD Campaign 25 Hours Medal":

Maeran, Robert_Wiggins, Corsaire31, and Carrick 58.

Congratulations, gentlemen, 25 hours are quite something.
But I'm afraid all prognoses of a short war will prove wrong, and you may have to hold out much longer than that.
Carry on in the same spirit, gents!

(I should have awarded you already on Wednesday or Thursday, but the paperwork...
Thank you for the reminder, Lou!)

I'm french (at least it says so on my passport...) but I hate flying the Nieuports. I will gladly start a career as soon as we get real planes ( Spads ) smile2

Gratulations to all the promoted and awarded Pilots!

Sadly for me, I have to inform you that Bernd Guth died in a horrible takeoff crash at Premont this morning. one of the new replacement pilots was not able to take of straight away, touched Bernds wing, while he tried to evade, made him crash to the treeline close to the field. Nor Bernd, neither his Observer survived!

Sorry for the loss of your pilot, Casey - c'est la vie en guerre...
I hope you will find a new unti to enter - French, German, British or American?

That is a bummer, LtCasey.
Had a few close calls myself. Now I take off later than the flock.

Carrick - aerh - Snodgrass, old boy - congrats to your latest successes! Shall we visit the mess and have a few - on your slate?

Casey, there was only one French Escadrille which was full of Americans - the Escadrille Lafayette.
Enlist there, and you will be in good company - Charles Nungesser was flying there, among others.
