We put zee Bosche down today. A section of three a/c went up to the Peronne area and didn't see anything. I led a 2 a/c section up to our eastern side of the lines and engaged 2 Recon 2 seat machines. I can confrim my flight leader Housseman,s Kill as it smoked a great deal as it headed down. I closed on mine ( remembering what a fellow aviator told me about staying low and behind) I started firing at 100 meters and banged on my second drum at 50 The last drum was nose up and stalling as I fired and saw him spin out of control. Leveling out I saw the e/a spin into the ground.

Way to go Carrick. Looks like Banjoman's bum-rush tactic works well.

Oh, it works really well. The problem that I'm tackling now is how to disengage without getting shot to pieces. So far, the only thing that works right now is flying straight ahead but diving. If you turn at all the observer can blast you.

Gentlemen,
Just wanted to take a poll of all pilots flying for the Entente if during your fights anyone has seen any German HA pilots other than Gustav Leffers. Between the 2 careers I am flying in 1915 I am still to see anyone else than him. Let me know if you're using any Ace Redux mods or not.
Thanks salute

I've only seen Leffers, but I am using one of the Ace Redux mods so I probably wouldn't be the best one to ask.

Thanks Banjoman,
Is Leffers actually on your mod list? Is there any way to check that?

If you set the mod to 50, let's say, then how it works is the sim will only use the top 50 aces from the list for that country. If I remember correctly, the stock files that the sim provides are in descending order by top ace to the last ace and the name of the ace is included in that file, so you should be able to see which aces are being included with your mod. A lot of words to just say, Yes you can.

Banjoman,
So what number do you use to limit the HA's in your mod if I wanted to check if Leffers should be there or not?
Thanks for the score report BTW.

Deacon211, I'm a little confused by your Pilot entry. FFA 18 isn't flying Fokker E.Is and it is an army unit, so how do you have a Naval ranking? Anyway, I think you might want to take another look at your entry in the status report.

Fullofit, it looks like I've forgotten what mods I'm using for the the Aces Redux. It turns out that I modified the British and French to have only 100 HAs but I left the Germans alone. If I remember correctly, since I was initially flying a Brit, I didn't want to have many British HAs in my squadron, but I did want to have all of the Germans. Since I'm now flying a German I can see that my thinking was a little short-sighted. Anyway, Leffers is Ace180 in the German list.

Hope to get back into the skies soon! I installed a new CPU and motherboard and didn't realize that my new motherboard didn't have a connection for my (very old) dvd drive, so i was unable to reinstall WOFF frown. The new drive arrives today so i should be up and running.
