Scramble missions while flying a British squadron. It would be nice if the bombs were not dropping on the field and the threat is long gone by the time the flight gets airborne. Maybe a little advance notice. Thanks.

Same thing happens when you're flying German, MFair. It's like the first person who notices them is the guy cleaning out the latrine at the airfield. Approximate altitudes on intercept and scramble missions, too. Within maybe 10% of the actual altitude, so we know whether to climb like 773H (rotate it 180 degrees) or to look low fast.


Speaking of altitudes, I think a mission briefing would include the altitude at which we're supposed to link up with an escorted/escorting flight.


SALUTE TO ALL!

It suddenly dawned on me today that the Sopwith Dolphin is yet to make an appearance in WoFF! That would be a very cool plane to have!

+1 on the Dolphin. Was hoping to see it for the BHaH2 update, especially with the DID campaign entering 1918.

2000 produced, 2 squadrons operating it in Feb of 1918 and another 2 by March 1918

Snipe by contrast had 497 produced and entered service in September of 1918.

Having said all that, I can only imagine the hundreds of hours necessary to make a new AC.

+1 on your post

There are a number of aircraft missing from the squadron components of Campaign in WOFF. That has been a long standing item and hopefully the missing aircraft will arrive in the not too distant future if POL and WM ever find the time, but as you have already said "...I can only imagine the hundreds of hours necessary to make a new AC." .

A bit of a technical, behind-the-scenes wish, so to speak - but it would be great if WM could do some magic and maybe harness the power of a second core on CPUs, for WOFF - no need to harness an entire second core if not possible - but something like, let's say, 20 to 25%, ought to do it - to spread out some of the computational/processing work that goes on behind the scenes in WOFF in the heavily modified CFS3 code - should be of benefit for later-war scenarios especially (1917, 1918, etc.) - also when flying across areas of the front lines that are being pounded hard by artillery.

Cheers all,
Von S smile2

Note: not referring to setting of "affinities" across CPU cores for regulation of background processes, with the post above, but instead to tap into some actual, two-core or core-and-a-quarter/half possibilities.

Hello.
My new wish list.
Improve the overall performance of the game.
Incorporate some aircraft, such as the Dolphin and the Pfalz XII.
And finally - I hope they don't attack me too much - to be respected as a consumer.
BH is not a new game, it is modified WOFF. Surely the FM has been changed and "special effects" have been added but it is not a new game. It is an update from WOFF. It won't seem honest to me that WOFF PE owners are made to pay for BH as a complete set, because it is not. I can agree to pay for an upgrade but I don't honestly see BH being presented as something new, it is not.
Greetings.

Isn’t that what each FIFA, Madden..Hockey, NBA2k is every single year though Asam? It’s a rehash of the previous years title..I should know pal I purchase some of them for my lad. Most of the time there just a squad /roster change maybe a few “special” moves. Yet there classed as a new game there certainly not sold every year has a DLC. They then have the gall to charge consumers extra money for “points” to open packs of cards etc.

I’m certainly not here to attack you far from it, you’ve put your points and I’ve put mine..Which we are both perfectly entitled too.Like Pol has previously mentioned there’s plenty of life in PE yet,if there’s a discount for PE owners brilliant, but has always its down to your individual choice as to whether you think BHaH II is worth purchasing or not..I agree with the Dolphin that’d be awesome, performance? I don’t have any real issues personally but yep if it could use more CPU cores similar to what VonS has posted above that’d be brilliant
.

Agree 100% epower the Dolphin would be awesome, I’d also personally like an Italian front, I’d definitely pay a price for Aircraft DLC for BHaH II if it was made available in the future.

The developers have a tried and tested formula for their product that works for them, and continues to give people like us one of the best WWI aviation experiences around.
I doubt they will change that formula, (unless they want to go out of business).
New content in the form of BH&H is very much welcomed and we all wait the release with much anticipation. yep
As to it's 'classification' whether new game or add on dlc is pretty immaterial. If we want new content, it's down to the individual whether or not they will buy it of course, but if WoFF goes to the wall, I fear we will never see the likes of this type of genre ever again.
Anyway , all being good it will be available in around 14 days!

Couldn't agree more. There's nothing fundamentally wrong with WOFF that requires a major root and branch overhaul and to risk one needlessly puts the whole project in jeopardy if it didn't work. There are a few tweaks that can be made and these have been pointed out. But from what the new videos and screenshots are showing us, we are getting major new improvements to gameplay, graphics and effects and they're only the ones we can see or Pol is letting slip at this point.

The Dolphin would be a good and historically significant addition, other than that I think early war is more important than later on.

This is the only WW1 sim I know which allows you to fly throughout 1915 and into 1916 which is amazing, but that being the case we could do with more two seaters to provide career options during that period and targets too. So for me, the Albatros B/C series and the Voisin would be wonderful additions and would raise the immersion factor even higher than it is already in this peerless sim.


"A great deal of an aeroplane could be holed without affecting its ability to fly. Wings and fuselage could be—and often were—pierced in 50 places, missing the occupants by inches (blissfully unaware of how close it had come until they returned to base). Then the sailmaker would carefully cover each hole with a square inch of Irish linen frayed at the edges and with a brushful of dope make our aircraft 'serviceable' again within an hour."

+1 on this. A Morane-Saulnier Type N (Bullet) would be welcome for early-war scenarios, also the Longhorn/Shorthorn (I believe there were some videos on YouTube a while back with such experiments under way by modders but the project then fell under the radar).

On the other topic -- with an Italian front - also the eastern front and middle eastern fronts in place - WOFF would be the go-to encyclopedia simulator for WW1. For the eastern and middle eastern fronts, mostly the same aircraft are in use as for the western front (but smaller numbers and obsolete types). Some new aircraft would have to be done for the Italian front however (Aviatik Berg D.I, maybe also the Phonix D.II for late-war scenarios, plus the Austrian Albies, etc.).

Happy wishing,
Von S smile2

From what I understood from those 2017 videos is that the Bullet FM is fully modeled, I think the actual model needs to be polished up though. Something I definetly look forward to, since I die for Early War. Also, am I too based being Italian to dream about our front being added?

As one of the members who was working on this project with OldHat and Robert Wiggins, please allow me to clear up a few points. First, I did indeed post pictures, not videos, of both a flyable Bullet and Longhorn on this forum, although I can assure you that they could indeed fly. While we had flyable models of both planes, the damage model was limited to just one or two boxes for the entire plane.

Originally, this project was initiated by OldHat. Both models were based on previous models developed by someone else, who gave OldHat permission to use them. Unfortunately, after OldHat had put dozens, if not hundreds, of hours on improving the 3D models and developing a rudimentary damage model, his computer crashed and he lost all of the original models. Both models would have to be built again from scratch. Understandably, he chose not to continue the project. This is sad, because I felt we were very close to releasing a workable mod for both planes.

There were still a few additional problems that had to be ironed out. In addition to the lack of a detailed damage model, there was the issue of getting the planes to show up in the campaign. This would have required both JJJ's mission editor and the user's willingness to modify the mission.xml file in order to get the planes (user or AI) into the campaign. Another problem was OBD's relative coolness towards allowing third-party flyable plane mods into the game. From my own point of view, this was understandable, given concerns about quality control, protecting the "brand" etc. However, OldHat took this more personally than me, and I sense this is another reason why he chose not to continue the project.

Theoretically, we could start the project from scratch all over again, but we would first have to find the person who developed the original 3D models, get his permission to use them, and then find someone else with 3D experience to agree to work on refining the models so they could work in WOFF. I would volunteer, but I am hopeless when it comes to visual model building. Plus, my eyesight is not good enough now to do detailed work on a computer screen.

So there you have it. Later today, I will try and post a few screen shots of OldHat's Bullet and Longhorn models in action. I would post videos, but my model of motherboard doesn't support Shadowplay, for some reason, and I am too lazy to d/l Fraps.

@BB, thanks for the detailed info. regarding those projects. Yes it is a shame that that computer crash happened but it is what it is. The vid. I was initially thinking of was by the way this one. In terms of the Bullet itself, the model was initially built for FE/FE2, developed by Vernon "p10ppy" Bowden - but he hasn't logged in to CombatAce since 2010. The Longhorn/Shorthorn pack was developed by another modder called "Bortdafarm" who also hasn't been active in FE/FE2 for more than a decade - so I can understand the impracticality of getting permission for model exportation, from said modders - and I agree that at this point it would be counterproductive to begin those projects from scratch. Slightly off-topic, but here is another link for those interested, to a nice Bullet replica.

Thanks again for the info. and happy flying all,
Von S smile2

And yes I have TrackIR and lean over to the site, not convinced its helping my accuracy, but would like a 1-button solution if possible.

Yes I agree about the gun sights. I use head tracking, and avoid any plane with offset gun sights. I have my tracking set with a small dead spot in the center, but leaning to one side means I'm leaning down to the right, never quite finding the sweet spot, Literally a 'Pain in the neck'. Even the Bentley Camel can be hard work hunched down trying to line up.
A 'one key toggle' for 'Gun Sight Center' would open up a few more aircraft to someone who dose not want neck ache. This is the ONLY game I have played for the last 7 months so I know all about neck aches in a 'Spad' for example.

Yes a few more options with the labels would be good..
