The one and only thing which I dont like in WoFF, is the in-cockpit zoom which actually can only be made in steps and not smooth, like the zoom function in the external view.
Maybe this could be adressed sometimes in the future?

I wonder if record function will ever be implemented. Just imagine how many cool and beautiful videos we could create to spread the word!
Of course, we can record what we see from the cockpit and sometimes more (risking our lives) but nothing compares to thoughtful editing after the heat of the battle calms down. + some aftereffects and we could make great fan trailers.
Is it some game engine limitations? I remember even old Il-2 had this feature. I would gladly pay for it.

It would be also great to somehow control overwing guns' position. As I imagine it - either we have 2 positions (normal and 45 degrees upwards) or we could take control over them just like we control observer guns - with our joysticks - while the plane's flying in autopilot mode or something like this).
I'm sorry if this had been mentioned already

I still feel that small icon underneath only the flight leader would be superb here.It could change to signal him giving hand signals so that a small ^ is taking off while >/< signals in flight/rtb and + signals enemy spotted engage etc.Small * under the flight leader of a flight you are tasked to escort would be great also. ahoy


Also,when you enter into observer position you have option to grab the gun or release the gun and when you release the gun the mouse still controls your view but you also have ability to fly the plane using WASD.This could simulate that the observer guided the plane by hand signals.Simple thing yet could add something big IMO.The controls of plane should be sluggish to simulate just guiding rather than flying the plane.

I'd like to wish that WOFF fleshes out it's role playing side to give it a more personable feel to the game. Also, to make you feel insignificant to the War's cause and your missions are only a very minor part of the war.

WOFF Role Playing Game (RPG)

1. Squadron Introduction through an interface similar to OFFbase 1.1.1

2. Missions are flown in real time

3. If crash and survive behind enemy lines then automatically exit aircraft through "J" key and run towards NML. Chance of capture is calculated every 5 seconds until you reach your own trenches. When you successfully reach your own trenches, open interface similar to OFFbase to communicate with your base to pick you up.

4. If crash and survive on your side of line then exit aircraft through "J" key and find your way back to base. Option to encounter troops, convoy, or take the train, etc... which will open an interface to allow you to choose if you want to be escorted back to base.

5. Once at base either by landing or through other means, then exit aircraft, convoy, train, etc... through "J" key and you have freedom to enter any building to get chance encounters with squad similar to OFFbase.

Main purpose is to interact with people in your squad, know when someone dies and is sorely missed, get angry at the person who stole your kill or almost collided with you and enter your mission story into your dialy diary.

Hello,
old OFF Phase3/HiTR owner who just bought both WOFF and Expansion, so it's hour and a half or so fresh impressions from top of my head:

-mouse controlled views -but can't say if CFS3 engine allows that for us yet-to-buy-TrackIR users (if there any beside me)
-as mentioned earlier some kind of even permanent small label indicating flight leader
-smooth zooming transitions in the cockpit view

Birds would add great to the overall athmosphere!
We have cattle and horses which is great.
But I would imagine, that some lonely birds of prey or some flock of Birds would do an amazing job to enrich the allready living world of WOFF!
I cant remeber if this feature has ever been in an sim. Wasnt it in FSX?

I'd just like to say that I had wished for Wind Buffeting and that wish has been fulfilled! The new wind buffeting effects are fantastic! Many, many thanks to OBD!

Just two wishes, please.

1. Dedicated gunsite key, that switches between the "flying view" and the gunsite view only, without having to cycle through the two other views in between them that currently exists.

2. An option in the workshop for "minimal labels." Currently, when the aircraft reach the closest setting in the workshop, the labels display the aircraft type and the pilot name. I would love to have the option to display only a small red icon for enemy planes, or green for friendlies, without aircraft name or pilot name.

My ageing eyes just need a little help when in combat being able to distinguish enemies from friendlies. I think the current system that includes aircraft name and pilot name is a little overkill.

I don't know if this is possible in WOFF and would be unrealistic but fun IMO.

Dynamic frontline which you can affect, meaning you would get a mission to attack infantry on frontline and when you kill % of infantry or trucks at target the front would move after the mission and you could check the progress on the intel map.

Seeing you single handed have an impact on war is good for gameplay.

Since the "Wish List" is filled with some wild ones I'll will add one:
Activity on the flight line prior to take-off and after landing. People, mechanics, vehicles, etc. Make the aerodrome seem more alive.

And the darn gunsite key of course!

I agree. Surely there must be a way somehow to increase the size of the dots to something that I can also see???

Is the Straight & Level autopilot still under consideration? Or too much work?
