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".

Nevermind. Pol beat me to it by 1 minute. LOL. Hopefully we can get another tidbit or two soon.

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.

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!

Looks incredible, would the new aircraft need new skins guys? Cheers

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.

Hahaha... That was a great day!! I still remember your helicopter story... And how we got to see the WWI display up close and personal a la "New York" style.

A memory I'll never forget!

Again, you can use Pilot Log Editor.
