I recently bought a VKB Gunfighter MKIII L and I went into WOFF PE tonight for the first time to test a mod, and one hundred and twenty four minutes later I was landing a BE 2C? in the dark. But my plane didn't have an observer? Not sure what plane that is???? Anyway, the first Campaign mission was just a flight around the Aerodrome. The second mission started in the dark and I thought oh great this won't fair well. First off let me say that I did not know Combat Flight Sims could be so fun until I have now experienced them(IL2 GBS & WOFF PE so far) with this VKB Gunfighter with the 200mm extension. So far I have about 8 hours flying on it and this is the best addition to my HOTAS setup since I purchased MFG Crosswinds a few years back. Back to my screenshots, I took several pics in the dark but they just don't look that great as a screenshot so I am only posting one. BUT I flew for 2 hours on this Airship over England intercept mission and what a challenge. Just keeping close formation with my Flight Leader was hard enough, but we also flew through two separate rain storms and on the last leg of the return trip my engine started to sound like it had a carpenter inside trying to get out. Luckily I had enough altitude to limp back to Dover Aerodrome and land my tired lass. Maybe I am crazy but just before we arrived at the midway point in our mission where the serachlights were searching the night sky, I swear I saw an Airship but it slipped behind the clouds and I never saw it again. Needless to say I never broke formation with my flight leader for fear of never finding him again or finding my way home. Said all of that to say this, this was the MOST immersive set of missions I have flown in WOFF PE in a long time. I was mentally tired from that night mission and the last third of the way I just wanted to get home and land . I then started a late 1916 Campaign flying the Morane-Saulnier L?? whatever is in the pictures. I lasted 1 mission and was shot down by 3 voracious Eindecker EIIIs and I died of my injuries after successfully landing my crippled crate. Thanks Mark & Mark for this superb WWI CBFS. I had more fun & stress tonight than I have in any other CBFS in a longtime. I will graduate to BH&H II sometime in the near futre, but in the meantime PE is still serving me well. Here are the pics. I did lighten up the gama in the at night picture to make it a little more acceptable to view.

Sandbagger has hosted/posted version 3 of User skins and Alternatives.

Pack 3 has 193 new skins/all the older skins have had an image quality upgrade and some rework. Some misplaced skins were removed from Pack 1 to Alternatives or deleted. So now there are 279 in there and 149 in Pack 2 and 124 in Alternatives.

There are skins for Kest 1 and 3/some Fokker DVII {Alb) with five color wings and fuselages and t here are skins to fill in the BH&H2 gaps in Jastas 4/5/10 15 and 18. I made some early Pfalz DIII factory camouflage crates for Jasta 10 and put some in Kest One, just for Fun (poem).

Pictures are posted in the screenshots thread here and on Combat Ace Forum.

jerbear, YOU ARE THE MAN!!!! This awesome. One question, so I assuming it would be wise to just download all three and replace the old 1,2 and 3 alternative skinpacks to keep up to date with your changes Sir? Thanks again as I am just going to fly mission to in my Official 94th Squadron Campaign as Douglas Campbell. Thanks so much Sir for all of your 'Hard Play'!!!

S!Blade<><

Edit: Think I got it, I just uninstalled all of the old and JSGME'd the new ones in. Thanks mate!!!!

Hiya Jerbear,

The J28w Arthur Merz skin you created that uses my 5-color Alb skin with his markings pulled from my OAW Fokker D.VII skin.... where did it show that he flew the D.VII variant, let alone the Alb Built? The Alb built Fokker was just some "smoking mirrors" work I did to give the extra variant and add the 5-color lozenge. There really is no "Alb built" it's just a Fokker V.II with the Alb colors and factory markings. We missed a lot of skins because of the way we interpreted the datafiles. I noticed this in the last set of Alb D.I/D.II skins I made as I was testing.

Is that how you found it? I don't know that the Alb built skin is correct for Jasta 28w. Did they fly that variant? The Alb built D.VII (not the OAW) was mostly assigned to the higher Jasta numbers.

Also... when you make these skins.. don't pull all of the markings... mix them up with each variation of plane. Meaning, if a pilot (ace) flies a D.VII, OAW and D.VIIF and you have nothing to go by but one skin... dump some of the markings, add a stripe, move them to different locations.... change the colors... etc. It wasn't often a pilot stuck to the exact same marking on every plane he was assigned. Not sure why, but they tended to change them a lot. Some did not... many did. Josef Mai, Ernst Udet, Herman (Fat Ba$tard) Goring, MvR, to name a few. Every plane Udet flew looked totally different...same for Mai with his crazy paint jobs.

Thanks,
OvS

Thanks jerbear!!!

Blipping on my approach to the Aerodrome. Love the smoke effect tied to blipping. A nice touch OBD. Just look at that 94th Sqaudron skin, #10 Douglas Campbell got 2 Alb DV kills in his first mission. Great work/play jerbear!!!

Lovely pics. of WOFF PE there Blade, and of the excellent airfields mods. by RJW, Lou and company. By the way, engine blip smoke effects are toned down as far as I remember in the BHAH.2 edition of WOFF.

Happy flying,

I certainly hope not. I like the effect very much the way it is in PE. Upon letting go of the Blip Switch the rotary first belches out black smoke(un-burnt fuel) immediately trailed by a Whitish/bluish(maybe a little more bluish tint?) smoke(the castor oil that wasn't burnt) in a most convincing fashion. The smoke even comes from the bottom of the cowling as it should and clears up very quickly as the rotary resumes normal combustion. This looks most convincing to me and if OBD did tame it down from what PE has now I hope they will consider changing it back in a patch. Would love to see some pics of it in BH&HII, but you have to be quick on the pause button to get a good pic of full effect.

I have to say these certainly add a lot to the game on the German side. Wow.... so many holes plugged. And they look circa! Awesome. Thanks for doing all these.

Keep it up!

Sorry James…somehow I missed your 29 July and 3 Aug postings. Just saw them this morning.

Yeah…I know your 5 color fabric DVII fuselage is just markings and not a model of the Alb variant, but the smoke works well enough.

I wanted to do something that was all 5-color and swiping your fuselage, filching the the 5 color wings and undersurfaces from the nice Schuster, Jasta 17 DVII, (by the way...any idea who made that?) then making my own upper surface for the horizontal stabilizer. Which seems to adequately do the job of creating the illusion I wanted, if not perfectly. Lazy way around.

Yes, I find a lot of missed skins, but I figured a lot of that is because units and pilots were added after the skins pack came out, cant catch everything when the situation is that fluid.

I don’t know if Jasta 28s flew the Albatros variant or not. There are huge gaps in what we know about these units since we bombed the cr** out of the Potsdam Reichsarchiv. So, could’a.

I presume that with any military supply system, they send you what they have one hand and if that happens to have been built in Johannesthal, then that’s what you get and be happy about it.

I’ve been making the changes of position and markings you mentioned along with some things like cowling adjustments since I learned how to jury rig a template to use with them but still have a number of older ones that need work. I go back through them to make changes as I go along, continually improving here and there.
I also do some of the things to change the markings for the same pilot on different machines, leaving out or adding something, changing to a different marking sometimes or even taking over the markings of someone who has left the Staffel. I think I read that Hans Muller used to change his markings up every so often because he heard the English were putting bounties on the heads of known aces and he didn’t want them to recognize him.

In answer to the 5 Aug posing, glad you’re enjoying the skins, pack 4 coming out soon with another 170 or so, probably this week.

Just wanted to share a shot of some of the new things from the Custom Consolidated Facilities Mod.  This is Nieuwmunster Flanders Aug 1918, Seefrosta I.  This nice aircraft shed is on the takeoff end of the airfield.  Lots of nice detail to the shed itself and to all the ground personel. These are details added to the standard aerodromes by the Mod.  Very impressive, well worth a Control-Tab walking tour.   

Thanks all you CCF Modding guys, beautiful work.

Tried to post this on Combat Ace but it's too large [Linked Image]
