I'm going to try and see if I can continue to put them all into one post, let's see what happens icon_e_biggrin.gif

Thanks to Trupobaw my tutorials are now nicely organized on steam!

 

I highly recommend reading the steam version over the forum version because it's organized much better and doesn't have posts in between.

LESSON No.1: "LIFTOFF"
ioizc1.jpg

ek22qt.jpg

Unfortunately this terrible new forum has a very low limit for pictures added to a post, I've updated the thread which now has "LESSON No.6" on page 2.

What I'll do is make some sort of page to combine all the lessons into one page by page booklet, but for now the lessons are in numerical order on this thread.

Glad you like it, it's a bit "wordier" than I would have like it to be, but I plan on working on that. I'd like to see what some new guys think of it (if they ever find it :lol: ).

Looks good Lib. Simple, straightforward, and I think the illustrations are quite helpful.

Stylistically, it looks almost like it could be notes from a WWI veteran's note book.

I like it.


Regards,

PS> If you put a bunch of these together, maybe we could bundle these up into a handy link
on our web site, just as we have with Requiem's videos, if you're so-inclined.

I started off wanting to make it look like a comic (as you already know) but I found that my handwriting on un-lined paper doesn't quite go straight :lol: I remembered how much people in my class (including the teacher) liked my notes which I had been writing in a graph paper pamphlet, so I decided to go in that direction (I'll probably add some jokes and puns along the way to keep it interesting though :lol: )

Image

If I do get a bunch of these done, I think it would be cool to put them into a pamphlet or a PDF file maybe. Once I get through the basics I can work on more complicated maneuvers & tactics as well for the "not-so-newbie" players. Maybe see what other's would want tips on?

:S!: everyone

Sounds, good. I'm sure we'll chat some about it next time I see you online, but I like
where you're heading with this - should be quite helpful.

Hopefully I'll get better at this, I feel like I'm missing out on small tidbits of information, it's a bit harder to go back and fix things written on paper… in pen :lol:

Lib, for the future.
1. Diving technique, for specific planes,your techniques on how to keep track of rpm(tips?), how to slow diving speeds, angles, pulling out of dives, dives to runaway. I have more trouble diving and not killing my engine or losing ailerons, rudders, elevators or whole wings. I would really appreciate your input from your experience on this topic.

There are SOOO MANY newbies that think just pulling back on the stick will get you off the ground and they ALL end with the same result, it's not even good timing its just the sheer number of people that don't understand angle of attack (which might be my next topic).

Blade, that is another issue a lot of people have trouble with, expect to see it within the next week or so :S!:

:lol: didn't even notice that, I more or less just put that airfield in for aesthetics but it could confuse people… I can probably flop that sock around in Photoshop.

Do you guys have any ideas for another one of these basics tutorials before I start getting into dogfighting tactics & maneuvers?

Alright…alright lol. Maybe my suggestion wasn't worth a drawing. :lol: But I have been flying about 2 years and never knew what the trim was and how it operated until very recently. ;)

…Now how about one for cocking the guns? :mrgreen: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Lib, lesson 4, especially 4b is priceless. I have never tried that method. I have always made adjustments out of game and then come back in and tested. Your method is absolutely priceless. Thank you Sir. I look forward to future installments. Thanks for taking the time to create and share these tutorials.

S!Blade<><

Edit: You might want to add a footnote that once finished adjusting the response that you must push the apply button at the bottom, otherwise the adjustment will not reflect in game. That can be very frustrating for a true noob if they don't know it. Just a thought, S!

Glad you liked it, I've always found that to be the easiest way to adjust the trim with curves :S!:

Also, good idea, I was actually thinking about that as I was writing it but forgot by the time I was at the bottom.

Fixed it, surprisingly comic sans matches my penmanship fairly closely… not sure if that's a good thing though :roll:

Lib, have you considered putting these in guides section of steam edition of RoF? Most of community activity there is new players trying to find their way through the sim.

Hey Lib,

These are looking great.

You might want to put one together on Engine Management which covers Manual mixture and radiator,
trim, temps, rpms (and over-revs), and maybe even some discussion on the various gauges available.

I know that has some crossover with your engine start page, but if the chat logs in Wargrounds are any
indication, newbie pilots have little or no idea about those controls, how to use them, and how to get
maximum reliability and performance by setting them properly.

Keep up the awesome work!

I can't because I haven't purchased RoF through steam, so it won't let me post things on the RoF Steam community.

That's probably a good idea, would definitely be a loooong one… my problem with that too is (as you know) most of my knowledge and experience in RoF is in Entente' planes, I really don't know how to read the German gauges and I can't read metric. If you would like to write some instructions for the German planes and send them to me (with screenshots or pictures) then I can probably put them in.

I might be able to do some basic stuff just on keeping engine temp, overreving, etc… Just add on to the mix controls I had on lesson 1.

Can I post it as your guide then, or better, post and make you co-author so you can update it without buying the steam RoF? I was in the same situation once (more steam-specific guide, though), so Jorri posted it and made me co-author so I could take over.

Sure, I'll put something together for you on those gauges that you can use as a reference
to convert into your particular style.

I'll give it to you at the Fly-In tomorrow.

I actually won't be in the fly-in to-morrow, or for a while actually if I get into the classes this semester… they go from 4:30pm-11:30pm (unfortunately), but I'm waitlisted in them so I don't know if I'll get in yet or not.

You can send it to me via PM and I'll see what I can do.

Ahhhh… Sorry you might miss the Fly-In. Have fun in class if you get in.

In the meanwhile, I PM'd you the article I put together on those gauges.
Hope you enjoy it and find it useful.
