Request for Pol,

Any chance you would be willing to make a single thread for WOFF 2020 content updates. Doesn't mean you need to make regular updates, etc. Just that when you do post them, videos, pics, written info, it will all be in a single thread for us folks to comb through. Just a thought. Thanks for all that you do to keep this sim growing and the WWI flight genre in general alive and well.

Sure, we as usual weren't ready to post anything major but I posted a few snippets on the Facebook page and some in reply to particular issues etc but will try to post in a thread here.

Just reposting Pols video for the WOFF 2020 work in progress. I really like how the pilot's head doesn't just turn, but also looks up and down like he's scanning the skies. The engine animations and light wing buffeting really add a lot to the immersive of flight. I am very excited to see these added immersion factors put into the sim.

From Polovski's post on the WOFF Facebook page

Dev Update 1st May 2020.

I have been working more on the SE5a - improved exhaust, engine area and radiator (also added scoop underneath). WM has added more cool features to the runtime code and is currently adding more to WOFF manager including some nice changes to how player, squadron and ace craft are allocated. We also have now various different faces/scarfs in the aircraft - currently test in SE5a and Albatros D.III. More on what's added and a video later...

Dev Update 25 April 200

Work continues on the next WOFF adding and testing animations and so on. But to help a little with the boredom here's a small snippet here, new updated radiator for SE5a. Other parts may be worked on too.

From Polovskis post on the WOFF Facebook page

17 March 2020

WOFF Development Update

Hello everyone, hope you are all staying safe.

Currently, we are working on a new expansion of WOFF. Full details of its contents and how it will be available will appear at a later date. We believe it’s going to be yet another game changer as several areas will be worked on and improved.

One important area is our AI - already the best in WW1 flight sims - this is being overhauled further and improved in many areas to up the immersion! New AI code to allow new appropriate decisions. Dogfights are more dynamic and intense, and now often lasting longer. During a fight, AI Pilots will still at some point try to escape the fight (at great risk to themselves) to get back over their lines as really happened in WW1, however they will be more aware of the fight around them and will re-engage combat if necessary whilst looking for their exit!

AI are more aware of enemies in all the various tasks they do and will be able to defend themselves better. For example when landing or taking off they will better able to react to immediate threats.

The Observer gunners are improved, for example new code allows the Fe2b to operate as a fighter! Gunners will be more responsive.

We have added a new REPLAY function so after the mission you can see what happened, with many filters and slick ways to watch it.

There will be new aircraft and some updates to many other aircraft.

These are just a few of the new changes, and we hope to post more details in the future.

[in a comment from the post he stated the following]

Over the last few days we have, with the help of Dan Holtz, been adding 'nice to have' extras for example ability to reload the Lewis gun and so on - it has been proving trickier than we first thought, but we hope to have this and other features in there too!

To the best of my knowledge, we are up to date on all that's been teased or released so far. If anyone is aware of other posts by Pol or WindingMan specifically regarding WOFF 2020, please let me know. Exciting times are still ahead for WOFF.

One from the other side, and a new inspection window added with glass etc. We aim to redo some parts of the textures, for example to remove some parts that are now more detailed etc and add some parts.

Pol... I see the Albatros mentioned...hmmm. what updates are we going to see

I've been thinking it might be time to refresh the old D.II. it's really long in the tooth at this point in WOFF's lifespan.

Well I will do as many as possible before the glue wears on this seat. The DIII has been updated with new anims as per the vids etc, and I improved various areas on there as the vids above. Not sure I can do all the Albs but will see.

On thing I would like to ask the dev team on campaign is to play a "replacement pilot" when the player pilot is killed:
If a pilot is killed, offer the option to the player to create a new pilot who would join the player squadron the day he is killed, or at the expected date of replacement.
This is something very immersive because we have the feeling to follow the history of the squadron as the squadron would retain the history and what happened during the previous career.

An excellent idea - the current way, for example, Kiener was one of the pilots based at Ghistelles, flying with v. Pranz. After v. Pranz lost a wing in an unfortunate balloon attack, I had to open up a new pilot profile, for Kiener, and set him to the day after Pranz was killed. The problem there is that all of the other, old names that were based at the 'drome also disappear once a new pilot career is opened. I don't mind doing this the manual way - although it is problematic if there are successful kills assigned to one of the "wingmen" in the duty roster - and then that wingman goes back to zero once you start him up as a new pilot profile, losing his previous kills. Although I can always make up a story that the kills were pending but never verified. But your idea is a fine one - more immersion for a squadron that way.

OK thanks for the suggestion, we may consider it for next time, probably not for this. No more suggestions in this thread please, there's a sticky thread above for "wish lists".

You can use Pilot Log Editor. Simply create new pilot and transfer him to existing unit. All pilots will be preserved and you come to the same squadron that your dead pilot left.

Here's couple of pictures of the updated Albatros DII and DI.
Of course they have animated a pilot, various vibrations in the cockpit and externally.

YES!! YES..yes..yes!!! Now that's what I'm talking about!! Looks #%&*$# good!

I saw the Alb D,II up close and personal at The Vintage Aviator... and this is as close as realistic as it being right in front of me again! Great job!!

Thank you so much for bringing it up to the new standards of WOFF PE!

Just noticed the breathers on the sides of the cowling and engine area. Nice details. Looking forward to the new Albs!

Thank you for this info. JJJ - will give it a go should I lose a pilot and see how it works.

Great updates on those early Albies Pol, very nice.

Small interesting update for WOFF 2020....

WM added the ability to re-enlist in a squadron to be, in effect, your own deceased pilot's replacement.

Jara, can you use PLE to transfer a pilot from Esc. Lafayette to other U.S. unit when it is disbanded?

From any unit to any unit, even to enemy .-). However, we are spoiling this thread, sorry. For any question let us move to Mods/Pilot Log Editor thread.

Which means if you die you can continue at the date in your current squad and with the same AI-mates with a replacement pilot. cheers

And look who's getting a well-deserved facelift. I have to say that the quality of the model Polovski has made for this and the D.II is fantastic!
Base skin was originally done by Paarma and myself ages ago... but I've been reworking it with new insignias, wing patterns, and many other smaller details we missed back then.
So nice to see this one and the D.II with this level of quality in WOFF.

Not sure I mentioned this new feature - don't have time to read through wink but as posted in another thread..

WOFF 2020 has around 70+ new features and changes already, one of which is a much improved inventory management options and one of those cool new features allows you the player to assign any general squad aircraft that is in your current squadron inventory to yourself or to other pilots. So if your squadron currently has 3 types of aircraft you can assign any of those 3 to anyone (although you cannot change historical Aces).

That sounds amazing! Over 70 new features and changes including aircraft inventory management? Sounds like an expansion not to miss. Thanks for the update Pol!

This fixes one of my recent pet-peeves. When deploying a new pilot in a campaign, I choose an aircraft I want to fly and get assigned (randomly) to a squadron where the plane is starting to become available. As the new guy, I get assigned one of the older planes, so I don't get to fly the plane I asked for.

Well done, you're fixing things before we complain about them biggrin.

Hiya Shred. Makai never saw the D.I. Paarma and I did a mish-mash of parts between us to quickly slap together a skin using the wings from my Alb D.III and Paarma's wood texture.

On the D.II, I will however preserve as much of Makai's insignia and artwork where possible as a show of respect and appreciation to our old friend. I remember all the emails we sent back and forth when he was skinning that and I was cutting my teeth on the Triphound then a very early crappy looking D.III skin.

Jeeze...time flies ..

Hi all – it has been quite sometime since I have posted here or been flying woff but back into it and absolutely enjoying everything again - with the upcoming potential for aircraft assignment – may I ask when I go out with my flight is it possible that each plane can have a unique ID number even if sharing a skin – to keep the immersion up rather than flying with a bunch of “carbon copies“

I am not sure if that is at all possible or even possibly occurring already?

Cannot wait to see what is to come - Certain to be brilliant as always

Thanks to the developers and all of you for all contributions and ongoing efforts
Cheers Ron
