It's that time of year again gents' for an FM poll, for a future ver. 5.0 of my FM update pack for WOFFue/pe. I will let this poll run for about a month. Simply click off what model you would like to see tinkered with first - I look forward to the results. This will give me an overview of what tweaks are more important than others. (Typo: Siemense should be written Siemens in the poll, sorry - don't know how to fix that now.)

Happy flying,
Von S smile


Ver. 5.0 FM Tweaks Poll
single choice
Pfalz Parasol (look into top speed, climb rate, control movement sensitivity, etc.)
0%, 0 Votes
Morane-Saulnier Parasol (look into top speed, climb rate, control movement sensitivity, etc.)
5%, 1 Votes
Fokk. D.II (look into max-g loads, top dive speed, top speed, climb rate, controls, etc.)
5%, 1 Votes
Fokk. D.III (look into same things as for D.II variant)
5%, 1 Votes
Halb. D.II/III (look into max-g loads, dive speed, level speed, climb rate and controls)
0%, 0 Votes
Nieup. 17 (check over max-g loads, dive speed, top speed, climb rate and controls, also wing loading)
40%, 8 Votes
Nieup. 24 (check over similar things as for Nieup. 17, particularly controls since the Nieup. 24 was somewhat slippery)
20%, 4 Votes
Fokk. D.VI (look into doing a 160hp-approx. Siemense-Halske variant, with better climb rate and top speed of about 200 kph, a very rare type)
10%, 2 Votes
Se5a (see if possible to make a rare, engined-up variant of the Se5, keeping the four-bladed prop. but giving 2300 rpm, 190-210 hp on the Hisso, better climb rate and top speed than on the Viper)
15%, 3 Votes
Total Votes: 20
Voting on this poll ends: 12/25/19 03:51 AM

Gotta abstain from this one, I didn't even know most of those were in the game! The sim that keeps on giving.

Yes, WOFFue/pe has a great variety of aircraft. Pleased to see several votes for the Nieup. 17 already, and a couple for the "Albert Ball Special" version of the Se5.

I would look at both the N.17 and the N.24. It would be useful to do them together because people often progress from one to the next, the result being you want the flight models consistent both with opponent aircraft and with the next aircraft in the Nieuport series.

Pleased with the latest poll results - looks like the N.17/24 will get a look-over first, and will then tinker perhaps with the Se5/5a. Yes, the Nieups. will be looked at together - the 24 and 27 sported a "newer" airfoil than the 17-23 series, so the 24 will get a climb rate closer to the 27. The only big difference between the 24 and 27 is a thicker v-strut and thicker single-spar in the lower wings, on the 27. Top speeds should be similar on the two - high 180s kph.

For the Se5...I will think about approximating either the lower-compression 200hp Hisso with four-bladed prop, or perhaps the early Wolseley (the "Adder"), that also had a four-bladed prop. According to Dan-San's post on TheAerodrome, the four-bladed Hisso was the best performing of the Scout Experimental types.

Good tweaking times ahead,
Von S smile

Many thanks for your votes gents' - even though voting is still open, it looks like the results are clear. biggrin 8 votes for the Nieup. 17 and 4 for the Nieu. 24, also 3 for the low-compression Hisso version of the Se5/5a. Will therefore do FM tweaks for the Lewis and Vickers-armed Nieup. 17, Lewis and Vickers-armed Nieup. 24, and will tinker with an approximation of the "Adder" or low-compression Hisso variant of the Scout Experimental - for a ver. 5.0 of the FM pack.

The Fokk. D.VI, D.II/III, and some of the Parasols - I will comb over in a later ver. 6.0 pack since those are not pressing concerns.

Happy flying,
Von S smile2
