Had a bit of free time tonight to enjoy my FrankenWOFF 4.18 install at a more leisurely pace - so I thought I'd post a few pics. to refresh this thread. WOFF sure is lovely in all of its iterations.
For those who like technical details, this particular installation is heavily-modded, using the wonderful mods. produced by the many talented modders working on WOFF (thank you RJW and company for the consolidated airfields mods., JJJ for the MultiMod and MissionEd, BB for the clouds/weather mods., Xjouve for the water patches and terrain meshes, etc., etc.). You've all done very well (as said by the young Mr. Grace in that classic 70s sitcom that some of you may remember).
I am also running the subtle bloom modification of the Bucksnort SweetFX mod. in this install (as well as backported textures and aircraft from WOFF PE). It also runs a slightly modified variant of my WOFF GPU Tuner Patch, etc. I've "borrowed" an earlier copy I had of the Pilots folder, from PE 5.03, so we have Ritt. Kiener "reanimated" again for some escapades here - but perhaps that's fitting given the overall theme of Franken-WOFF.
I'm also using the various wind tweaks mentioned in the relevant "air turbulence" threads here - and I've manually brought over some of the autumn trees done by 4L0M several years ago (from one of his JSGME-friendly packages), and have interspersed them in the relevant, autumnal season folders in WOFF 4.18.
Missions are proving challenging, also mysterious if not downright spooky, with several of our Aviatik 'crates and pilots, and observers, disappearing this time around - as indicated in the flight office report. Also entertaining as always are the after mission write-ups, giving that nice historical flavor that WOFF richly recreates. The only thing I lose in FrankenWOFF when compared to PE are animated gun belts, and I have to keep the prop spinning with a ctrl+s if I land on a meadow somewhere, even at a 'drome - if I want to be able to re-start my engine again - but these little challenges add to the fun - as does the extreme deadliness of trees, and fences, in ver. 4.18. If I find more free time I will maybe post further pics. and brief mission synopses here, on occasion - should provide for a nice change from the previous and more regular escapades flown in my moderately-modded WOFF PE 5.03 install.
And Franken-four-eighteen will be an interesting bridge, eventually, to the more mature skies of BHAH.II.
Cheers all and happy flying (whatever your current flavor of WOFF),
