I believe PR is working on a new version of the BT mod Mike from a earlier post by him.

" Adger:
I have already created a new set of my Scenery Improvement mods for PE that does three things:
1. Eliminate the dreaded BTs (which you can still get if you use the wrong combination of settings in PE).
2. Improve the Scenery Density all the way out the the new "fog horizon".
3. Increase the FPS over the stock OBD PE settings (magic).

It is being tested at the moment, but I am always looking for a "few more good testers" to see if the are any problems. PM me if you are interested"

Just downloaded PE and looking forward to my first test flight this afternoon.

A few items on the improvements list really caught my eye ... patrols will now be flown along the front (Yay!!!) and all the waypoints will now be shown in the briefing (more yay!!!). So much other great stuff to unpack.

Thanks OBD!!

Bought it earlier this weekend. The game runs smoothly even on my rather old computer, and the animated machine guns are a great touch. The AI is still challenging and you have to work to get kills and to survive. I'm glad this game has gotten yet another update - the longevity and passion rivals the old Red Baron series with its own long line of upgrades.

Just checked a campaign mission file. Impressive! Very quick loading of 100 active flights (barely a few minutes wait) from the time I clicked go to field until my plane was waiting on the airfield. The red circles in the briefing covered a distance from Nieuport to Reims on Ultra heavy setting! May 1917. Anyone know why there are two red circles (small one inside a big one)?

Well, I found it. GMail had it hidden in some bizarre folder, and no, it wasn't Spam. Everybody said "Check your Spam folder." That was the very first thing I did. Anyway, I have it now, but now I can't open it. It's proudly boasting that Defender protected my computer.I turned off the firewall, but I'm still getting the same message. Maybe I'm not meant to play this.

Don't turn off the firewall Sailor_Steve, just Anti Virus. If you get a report of a virus in Toolbox please report it to the anti virus vendor as a false positive.
Contact support with the details please.

Turning off the anti-virus didn't work. It was the situation where Windows doesn't recognize the publisher, and refuses to install the program. If you click on "More Information" another button pops up, saying "Run Anyway". The only problem was that button wouldn't appear. I looked online and tried different solutions and none of them worked. Then, while looking around my computer data I came to the Information page. Much to my surprise it said Windows 10 Home. I was surprised because I've always had the Pro version. I looked around and then remembered I have the Product Activation Key the original installation came with. I plugged in that key and sure enough it shut down and told me not to fiddle with it while it was Upgrading. When it came back on it now said 'Windows 10 Pro'. I disabled the Smart Screen and installed the program. Now I just need to find time to play it.

I have played PE for a few hours now and I'm liking it. It looks great and runs great. I didn't think the flickering clouds could be fixed as well as they have been. Cockpit updates are a welcome addition. Am I imagining things or have the windscreens been made a bit more transparent?

Ability to edit waypoints and better waypoint display are great to have. Would be nice if the waypoint altitude could also be seen and adjusted. Good expansion! I'm looking forward to the future updates.

Hello,

what does feature #34 mean, please?

34) Revised the Slot/Rank Breakpoints and optimised for each Nation to allow better allocation of the 3 Aircraft slots by Rank.

Also, is #39 a separate feature from pilot bleeding out? and does it also apply to AI (I know bleeding out applies to AI from a previous response by WM)?

39) Implemented Pilot progressive health deterioration if wounds are severe (Progressive DM).

Lastly, will the AI turn back and fight if they are attacked while landing (and/or returning to base)? If so, will the rest of the flight also help out the one who is being attacked even if they are in the landing sequence?

Thank you in advance.

I've been flying this since the day it came out and am very pleased. The new textures and visual range really enhance the experience. No more buildings popping up and disappearing after you fly over them, it also seems the density of the building has increased a lot. Flying over London is pretty mind boggling.


More Scotch and Stogies for my Wingman!

Many thanks to the OBD core team and all the many other people involved in bringing
WOff PE to completion.
I Can't imagine the many hours and days of work involved but Bravo for your work.

I have been flying for several days with Jasta 2 and RFC 24 near the time of the Somme
and enjoying the beauty and having no problems.

I have a question just to make sure that I am not imaging things with my ears.
I may have even forgotten that I mentioned this previously a year or two ago.

In Woff and Woff-UE ,just after landing and shutting down the engine, sometimes after an early evening

mission, I have heard the sweet sounds of music coming from some where. Perhaps the mess I thought.
The music is quiet like in the distance and does not happen after every mission.
I don't think I have heard it in Woff-PE yet as I have not flown many evening missions.

So please tell me,am I hearing things or is it real ?

Thanks,
Tango

I am in love with the Lone Wolf button. This is an excellent addition I didn't even know I was missing.

Thanks again OBD!
