70 weeks OMG I have just loaded the Webley.

OK first snippet:

This is an expansion so you will need to own WOFF UE already. We MAY (TBC) have two upgrade paths, one at a much lower price for PE owners.
Anyone reading who has not yet got hold of WOFF please don't hold off buying we need your support - and it's needed to use WOFF 2020.

Here's one of the changes...

1) AI 'Landing' or 'Going Home' are now more aware of enemy activity and react accordingly with 'Urgent Defence' on 'close proximity threat detection' even before a potential attacker shoots etc.
They bypass any Morale Factors as it's an Urgent reaction.
Note: AI pilots may sometimes still not see the enemy approaching and then may still not react.
Note2: Aircraft that are Landing - if they are "On Beam" Final Descent to runway/field) then they will not abort the Landing.
Many variables for reaction to 'close proximity threats' when 'Landing' or 'Going Home' such as
Skill/Weather/Visibility/AI Vision/Fuel/Ammo/Aircraft Type/Health of Pilot/Aircraft Damage

I'm sure it just might be ''two weeks''...

Love this “Urgent Defence“ mechanism. Finally one will think twice about camping over enemy aerodrome. Even following a retreating enemy won’t be an easy kill anymore. Thank you Pol for this gift. Please Sir, may I have some more?

The AI improvements sound good. With the upcoming aircraft assignment will the game also automatically assign one type of plane to any one flight rather than the current mix where low rank player might end up being lead by a pilot flying a plane with much better climb rate and cruise speed?

I also have a question about the contents of WoFF Platinum Edition: The list of new features on the PE store page mentions "New aircraft coming in 2020" which I assumed were part of the product but here I'm getting the impression that they will be part of the next paid update instead. So does PE actually include the new aircraft or not?

The aircraft assignment is totally different including Historical Aces so you will just have to wait and see. The point of the new options allow YOU the player to change any aircraft in your flight so really it doesn't matter. You cannot change aircraft that are assigned to the HA's, and only stock you have can be assigned (or put on order).


The new aircraft coming 2020 referred to more future addons and was a tagged line under item 28 which had new squadrons to allow new aircraft etc.

But actually as always things may change, there may or may not be new ones in WOFF 2020, even if there are not there's a possibility there still could be more new aircraft in 2020 and 2021 - depends on how much content we have by the time of release and what is finished.

Urgent Defence sounds like a fantastic new layer of realism and immersion to the WOFF experience. Awesome new addition. Thanks for the info, Pol! Much appreciated.

I'm in shock that I threw out a crazy idea and Pol actually did it! That is awesome.

Nice. One other odd AI behavior I've noticed most of the time, is the AI fighter escorts run away when they spot attackers.

You mean all this juicy info was posted since the 11th and nobody noticed? Oh, the shame!
Looking forward to the new rotary engine models. Does this fix that weird look when the airplane model was seen from further away? You know what I mean?

Yes it seems to be so Fullofit - if you mean the rotary engines seem to show through cowls at a distance sometimes.

This update will be a huge leap. Woff is a wonderful sim. Absolutely the nearest thing to a time machine!

It might not be quite the sort of new feature you could splash across a big announcement all on its own, but Lewis guns having to be reloaded with new drums is easily in the top three of the announced features for me. Can't wait for this to come out!

Oh man, mechanics at the airfield and extra activity! Maybe the bike will be back. I love all the immersion upgrades coming.
