Hey there chaps. Was wondering…Since often pilots began their careers as observers and gunners, I was wondering if something along those lines would be possible within the limits of WOFF. I tried once, documenting my stats for myself and using the name of the AI observer, but barely the fact that observers often switch between machines made it rather undoable. Is there any possible workaround to this?

I fix to one observer with help of Mission Editor. There is a feature in Pilot roster window to set your (Player's) observer. The only condition must be met - it must be done when WOFF is not running. So, zou must close WOFF first an then run ME, open your pilot's latest mission file, assign your observer in Pilot's roster and save. Then start WOFF and check your assigned observer.

Could you not simply set auto pilot on and then hop in the back as the gunner? Not sure how long your career might last in that circumstance ...

That's what I used to try and do, but it's more of an issue that I'd have to keep track of a random gunner the pilot I create gets assigned. And if I wanted to change squadron I couldn't keep the stats for the same one.

I see. The game does appear more oriented toward the pilot end of things. Sounds like it might be moddable but I'm not expert in these matters.
I wonder if the Devs might be able to code a permanent Pilot - G/O pairing without undue hassle.
