I can confirm what ArisFuser said. A very impressive improvement in performance. I don't know whether people with those brand new space ship sized graphics cards and super computer processors notice any difference, but with my old rig it's very obvious.

To me, this alone has been worth the price of WOFF UE. smile

Great shot Hellshade,the winter trees look incredible not sure what you've been doing to your kite though,flying through barns maybe? biggrin

@Arisfuser that sounds incredible,il be picking up UE hopefully very soon. I grabbed my discount code from Mark at Support last night but I'm having a couple of issues with my net at the moment (having to type using my blinking mobile at the minute).

@lederhosen...not gonna happen would be my guess pal. The WOFF UE new shaders are just that mate,it's all part of that package..similar to the new shaders we got from upgrading from WOFF 2 to 3 cheers

Cheers mate,yep sent a quick email with my WOFF 3 order number to support@overxxxxx.com and had a very quick and pleasant reply from Mark. But then last night when I was about to purchase my net went down (been having on and off issues) with it for a bit now. So I'm waiting for a VM engineer to come an sort it. I don't fancy downloading a 4.5gb file while my nets the way it is...WOFF version 20 would be out by the time I fully downloaded it thumbsup

Edited support email adress

Did you have to log back in to their support site for the reply, or did they send you an email?

Silly question if I may, why is it that the splash screen depicts Rene Fonck highlighted and "Champagne" title added?

Pol can answer best but given the nationality of both of the new two seaters and the better integration of the french into the war as a whole, it's a bit of a french "flavored" release.

Exactly so. UE is a bit mundane. Champagne captures both the flavour of this release, and focuses on that portion of the Front that until now, had not been as fleshed out as Flanders and the Somme

Guess we will see.
For the first time I have started a "French" career (Escadrille Lafayette - did I spell that right?) so I have never been down south in the French sectors. Think April 1916 is Verdun though.

Also have a April 1918 American career ready to go with the "Hat in the Ring" squadron but I am not sure if that is the Champagne sector either.

In any case it's nice to have these options with WOFF UE.

Yes, escadrille Lafayette campaign I liked very much in WOFF. To be allowed to fly side to side with all historical aces recognized clearly by their authentic airplane skins was really very immersive adventure. I have simultaneously read Osprey's book Lafayette escadrille, so I was really in and literally lived inside. It was as real as it gets. Thanks OBD for this breathtaking experience.

On my first UE flight with them now and approaching the front. What adventure awaits?

Edit: Besides the adventure of the so-so weather its was a no-contact patrol except for the AA fire.

Oh...My...God!

I just bought UE. I was given the discount code, but had trouble entering it, ran out of patience and figured I'd take the plunge anyway.

I'm telling you: The French two seaters are nice, but minor. The airfields and terrain are a nice touch. The performance improvement is what completely changes the game. I don't even feel like I'm playing WOFF but a worthy successor.

I just finished a 10 on 10 battle at low altitude, late war planes, basically daring the game to bog down. The only time it stuttered was when I first swivelled my head, and I think that's Track IR trying to figure out what's going on. After that, the entire battle I never broke below 50 FPS. At one point in a 1:1 on duel I was over 70, and I landed at 79 FPM. The fight just felt different, the planes just a little faster, the movements much smoother.

Time acceleration, which was always enough to bring me to 2 FPS but a necessary evil for making sure my teammates got home on campaign? No longer an issue.

I get that it's a major investment. It is for me as well. But I promise you, if you love this game, then when you're finally ready to take the plunge you won't regret it. Kudos OBD!
