Look up your pilot name in here: http://174.34.143.214:8080/index.php" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://174.34.143.214:8080/index.php

It will tell you what killed you if you drill down to the sortie.

For ping, everyone should be at least yellow as it's based in cali

Updated post #2 with the planesets for each mission. If you have a favourite plane/planeset please check post#2 to know when it's running.

Updated missions recently several fixes.
Target rebuilding is now not so fast.
Extra scripts to protect bases if they are all being bombarded heavily. Destroying several bases at once is now much harder.
All planes ground start except for one bomber + an escort (non-uber plane).

Dropped in to try your server and had a blast guys, really nice.

Only had a yellow connection, but didn't notice any warps or banding. It's West coast US I think, but I'm showing a better ping to there than to Syndicate (was only a couple of yellow bars, so not significantly better ping I suppose) which is a little closer to UK.

Updated missions so that the rear two bases are mutually exclusive, there can never be all bases destroyed no matter how determined a bomber formation is. If the middle base is down, the back one comes back up. If the back base is down, the middle one comes back up.

We are starting to run missions in chronological order, based around the dates of historical battles. The missions are not strictly historical, but the dates of the battles at the location are historical.

Every mission includes the two-seaters, as they were the key planes in the air during WW1.

Every second mission includes the favourite Camel/Dr1 combination.

The Heavy bombers are used in the 1918 missions.

The new mission rotation is:

Battle of Hill 70 at Lens - August 1917
Entente Planes: Sopwith Camel, SE5a, Spad, Breguet 14
Central Planes: Fokker Dr1, Albatros D.III, Albatros D.Va, DFW

Moselle River Offensive - November 1917
Entente Planes: N17, N28, Sopwith Triplane, SE5a, Breguet 14
Central Planes: Albatros D.III, Albatros D.Va, Pfalz D.IIIa, DFW

Second Battle of Picardy (Somme) - March 1918
Entente Planes: Sopwith Camel, SE5a, Sopwith Dolphin, Spad 13, Breguet 14, HP O/400
Central Planes: Fokker DR1, Albatros D.Va, Pfalz D.IIIa, Pfalz D.XII, DFW, Gotha G.V

Battle of Reims - August 1918
Entente Planes: SPAD 13, Sopwith Dolphin, Nieuport 28, Breguet 14
Central Planes: Albatros D.Va, Pfalz D.IIIa, Pfalz D.XII, Fokker D.VII, DFW, Gotha G.V

Any keen bomber pilot/gunner should take this offer up, WolfPac is the best bomber and bomber/gunner in the sim in my opinion!

I stay well away from his bombers if I'm on the opposition :o

We are adapting our missions to be smaller because of the low turnout on weeknights.

They will still be the same basic mission content, i.e. lots of missions for bomber targets, fighter pilots, and anyone. Also plenty to do while waiting for people to join. Either attack AI planes, balloons, or do some ground attack runs.

New missions are finished, just two so far but they better combine close-base dogfights with some frontline activity and bomber missions.

If they work out, we may put it in other locations as well.

Also due to popular demand we're trying the server with Nav icons OFF. Navigation is now easy on these missions because they are smaller, and have a central river which to follow.

Updated missions:
-AI 2 seaters will patrol the lines at 3000m
-AI fighters now patrol ALONG the lines instead of random, although they can be diverted when they see things to attack.
-Some other tweaks and improvements, bug fixes etc

It should now be better when there's not many players around - just fly to the lines at 3000m and attack the fighters or 2-seaters

Added Dr1 to the final LATE 1918 planeset, alongside D7f to help balance the camel.
Also have limited the Bristol F.III a little.

Now it is 3 Dr1 & 3 D7f vs 5 Sopwith Camels. This should be enough for typical population, with a 5 minute refresh for each one.

Wind reduced slightly in Moselle River due to the wind bug issue.

I was on your server last night and it was pretty nice how the Dr1 and Camel became available later in the mission. It surprised us. I guess we never knew it could be done.

Thanks for the server!

Yep, there are three planesets going from Pfalz D3/Alby/SE5a, to Dr1/Camel/Gotha/Brisfit/etc to then Dr1/D7f/Camel/Brisfit/HP/etc

Every 90 minutes they upgrade.

For the team flying issue, being a squad ourselves we think it is ok to fly together. I wasn't there but the common way to do it is generally to have your group join the weaker side and announce to the chat that it will be unbalanced for a few minutes while the teams shift as new people join.

We do have a team balance rule but it's fine if you do as above.

Did the server crash or something around 9:23 CDT tonight? I was in and suddenly the screen froze and I got a lost server connection message. Dropped back to the server list and I didn't see Oceanic Wing in there anymore.

Also, the first time I logged in, I was getting some strange multicolored flashes whenever flak bursts occurred. I dropped out and restarted the game and logged back in and then I didn't have the problem. Not sure what that was all about.

Server sometimes crashes since last patch, we just have to restart it.

For flak flashes I've seen in several games on many servers when I overclocked my video card or on a hot day. It's from graphics chip over heating I think. Reboot normally fixes it.

It's OK regarding the server crash. I just wanted to confirm it as I have also been getting RoF.exe errors in the new Career. So, I just wanted to know if this was something happening at my end or not. ;)

I don't know if it crashed at that time, we're on a different time zone to CDT :)

But the easiest way to check is look in the server browser after the error, if the servers still there it didn't crash

Just to put It in writing for you Taipan, on playing the Somme mission I noticed that the two Central Balloons can not be shot down(the ones that are close together), the other ones worked fine.The Message that balloons have been destroyed does come up all the time.
I enjoy your Missions a lot and do my own training on them.I find the addition of Ai aircraft great!

Keep it up ! :S!:

Ps I corrected this thread as it was the somme mission not the moselle mission!
