Flew the first mission.. Great atmosphere. Traffic on the roads on the way to the front. Trains on the move, flat beds loaded with tanks. Populated airfields, aircraft on route to and fro, ALG with flares going off to signify aeroplanes taking off etc… very well done, a mission with some character :)

It'll take me days to install all the community historical skins. :D I'm starting right now! See you in a week. :P

Outstanding. Just finished the first mission. Really good atmosphere. Liked it a lot.

Also Box.net is a good site. No difficulty at all.

Did anyone else see a convoy of trucks over the lines and shoot the beezezus out of them ? It wasn't historical, but that SE5 strafes so well. Lucky no huns above that day

I almost attacked a convoy after I had flown over the 'old front lines'.. but remembered that the front had moved on since then, so I stopped myself luckily. :)

Yeah, I was tempted to attack the convoy too but realized it was friendly. I am playing with the no flak mod so the old front is more believable with no AA bursts.

I managed to shot down the hun two-seater (ripped his wings using upper gun), but had to land in a field few miles after, due to a "lucky bullet" in my engine. Only thing I noted was my entire flight returning home right after the first waypoint. Did the mission alone. So far, so good. :)

Done the first 3 missions. All I can say is wow!
Brilliant (free) campaign. There is obviously a lot of work gone into this campaign.

My only gripe is that the AI in my flight don't stay with me. On all three missions they disappear through the overcast rather than stay with me.

Am I the only one who is weirded out by the location of no man's land? I understand the historical context, but surely there would be more to go by than unscathed fields and forests!

Great campaign, though!

Hello Everybody,

Any ideas?

Thank you for the great campaign! Works fine, but I can't find the late McCudden Se5a skin. I have the 1.028 historical skin pack but that skin isn't listed. Is it somewhere else?

So that convoy was friendly. Oops. I think I'll just stay at altitude for a few missions.

I have vol.1,9,11 and i have this skin. Also, i think there is a readme with the skin list of every skinpack :S!:

Any hints on what planes i will meet there? Or it's anything that the Germans (and RoF ;) ) have that time like Alb. D.III, D.Va, Pfalz D.III, Dr.I, Halberstadt, DFW, ?Gotha ?

Regarding the second mission… Your wingmen fly above the cloud layer instead of staying with their leader. Also, is it me or weren't there any enemy aircraft in this mission?

I never lost sight of my wingmen. I guess you just aren't ready to be a flight leader yet, gabbyguy. Keep that throttle away from the firewall. :mrgreen:

If you read the quote at the end (which came right from Flying Fury – I'm cheating and reading each mission in my copy of the book before I fly it :oops: ): "We flew up and down the line for an hour, but no sign of any Hun Machines about….") you can figure out what's coming.

What is done very well in this mission is providing the ground combat action McCudden describes in the book. Very nice recreations of real missions!

Nice to have an actual war going on down there, too. :mrgreen:

I like the trucks, cars, kites and personnel loitering around making it look more like a "living" airfield. :) This is a promising sign of things to come particularly with Vander & Co's excellent wip on static objects. But my, those trenches look increasingly bad while the general scenery improves!

Prangster's done a fine job with his Flying Fury campaign. And I thank him for finally pushing me to install all the community historical skins. :oops: But it was well worth it! :D

Tested. Missions #1 and 2. It was a blast.
Although I:
1) Fly alone;
All other stayed above those thick clouds and
Ofc, I didn't want to follow them - how could
I orientate myself then? this is not IL2 where
you have wonder-radar field mod, mind you)
2) Never saw any of the enemies;
(but considering my pilot skills that
wasn't a bad thing, mind you. again :mrgreen: )
3) Didn't notice any… "actual ground war";
(what was that actually - actual ground war?) :roll:
4) I lost it. Waypoints I mean. :oops: (although,
like I said, I DID fly under the clouds to be
able to orientate)
now you'll probably start to wonder "so what
in the God's name was then there to be so…
blasted off ??" :evil: Well, really… dunno…
It's whole atmosphere.
I guess. Vehicles, convoys, that dude with his Image
signal pistol, and, just maybe… :P
those magnificent weather situations (how in the
world did he manage that? I could never produce
those atmospheric occasions,in those rudimentary
"quick flight" section !?? :? How did he ???
That, and the little fact that I KNEW that I just :mrgreen:
didn't done it the right way, that it's up to me,
truth be told. But missions are really wonderful.
Another thing that gives some weight is that
they - historical. How could you ask for more ?
Keep up. :|

Please. Image

Thank you a lot for this new campaign.

Is it possible to use it for playing cooperative in multiplayer or is only for single player?

I have all of the Jasta 5 skins (so far as I know), but I haven't seen any green tailed Albatrosses. All of them have the default skin. Aren't Jasta 5 skins included in the campaign missions?

Wow! I'm really impressed!

The movies, the images, the atmospheric music, the story and the whole presentation are great! The best campaign I've played in RoF. That must have been a lot of work.
As long as user realize such projects remains my purse for official campaigns closed. You show here how it's done!

Thank you Prangster

(P.S. 777 should hire you. For your next campaign I would also pay)

Thank you all for your kind words and support, it's nice to be appreciated.

In my haste to publish the campaign I realize that I didn't give enough credit to the people who help and inspired it.

First of all I'd like to thank SYN_Vander for coming up with most of the original ideas for the videos and briefings in his superb St Mihiel campaign. If I hadn't played that I wouldn't have been inspired to try his techniques myself. I'd also like to thank him for his video tutorials, if you want to try mission building they are the first thing you should look at.

I'd also like to thank SYN_Bandy for his lovely maps of the front that were so valuable when designing the missions. They are also included as printable maps for each mission and I've now added a belated acknolegement on each map.

Finally I'd like to thank Moggs, Malc, Badger and all my squadron members from The Tangmere Pilots who beta tested the missions for me.

So thank you all. :S!:
