Would anyone else pay for an expansion that improved the ground war aspect. IE varied arty explosions including shrapnel bursts. Bring Gas clouds back. Arty Batteries you can spot and once targeted Fire is directed onto them as if your calling in arty fire. Improved trench system and soldier animations. Historical mine explosions!!(System killer though I expect). More visible ground combat between sides, so tracer fire, be cool at night.

I'd snatch it up.

I'm happy with the AIr combat side of things esp after next expansion. Yes new planes are always welcome, but I'd really like to see more immersion regarding ground aspect. It's something no WW1 flight sim has really got to grips with to any major extent.

Also why did Gas clouds get removed?

I believe gas clouds ate frame rates for breakfast, if I remember correctly.

The ground war killed my FPS...even on my new(er) rig.
1918 was impossible to fly.

We are looking at various things for the "ground" in the next WOFF and we will be looking if there’s a chance to bring the gas back in a better way - no promises of course.

I would love expanded ground war effects. That much more immersive!

Yes...but no....but... behindcouch

Would like...but very fearful. It's not the most advanced engine under the hood and we are already having to brute force it to get good fps as it is. If it gets to WOTR or worse fps because of it, I would be disappointed and would want to turn it off and go back as I struggle to maintain what I have in my more modest system.

So for me, it would be very much dependent upon how much of an extra load is added.

Or better yet, a optional check box to set the amount of Ground War like we have for Airfield Trees.


CPU = i9 9900K, GPU = RTX 2080 Ti, Monitor = 32" 4K G-sync

It would be a good addition, especially if, as I personally suspect, the Halberstadt CLII is among the new aircraft being introduced. It would make possible a whole new type of career as a Schlacht-Flieger, sort of a spin off. But I think the Devs have their hands full as it is.

The reason I thing the Halberstadt could be in the offing is that some Schlachtstaffeln are assigned that aircraft but it shows red on the pilot recruitment screen because it is not YET available, which means it was planned long ago. Same goes for the Roland DV!.

You sure it wasn't amount of aircraft in the sky rather than ground stuff?


I find the years give a bigger FPS hit due to more air traffic.
