Dear pilots!

 

We welcome you to the new and improved Rise of Flight website! We’ve done quite a lot of work in all directions - from complete replacement of the technology to all new graphical style - to make the site more convenient, easy and enjoyable for you. At the same time all you profiles have been kept in tact, so be sure that your old credentials are working here as always.

 

The new free-to-play version, Rise of Flight: United Edition is at last much more accessible now, and can easily be found on the main page. So if you decide to offer your friends to try out ROF, simply lead them to riseofflight.com, they won’t miss the right button. And now a few words about the store that received quite a lot of positive changes.

 

Firstly, we’ve added the long awaited virtual shopping cart. From now on you can put in it as many items as you can and, of course, get a discount depending on how many of them you’re buying.

Secondly, starting today we’re removing the border between field and weapon modifications. That old system was not particularly convenient, so we gathered all mods in packs for each plane. Furthermore, everyone who had only one type of modification on a plane gets the other one for free.

St.Mihiel campaign is now available for free. Vander, thank you again for this generous and kind decision.

 

To celebrate the launch of the new site and store we’re sending personalization packs as gifts to everyone. These are not just fancy attributes but an essential part of WWI combat aviation history as well, and we believe we should share them with the community more widely than just by selling these items. Also, field modifications for Focker E.III and Airco DH.2 are available for free from now on too.

Note that some prices on planes have been reduced slightly. For instance, $6.25 price tag turns into $5.99, which is nothing like a drastic change but still this saves you a penny or two. Rise of Flight forum has changed completely. At the same time we moved as much of the previously created forum content to the new forum engine as possible and established new and perspective boards for all WWI aviation fans and ROF players for many years to come. While moving the only content that left untransferred was polls and user pics. So let’s settle in already and upload new images. Speaking of the looks of the forum - we’re planning to change its skin to make it adequate to overall website style, game interface and the old colors you’re all used to. Please, pay no attention to the current forum skin - it’s a temporary solution because just like you we’re still getting used to ROF’s new home.

 

Enjoy the housewarming everyone! We believe that the new home will be kind and hospitable to both old friends and new pilots.

Nice job on the site, guys, and thanks for the free mods for the E3 and DH2.  In videos on the main page you don't have Reflected's "Flags and Lies" trailer.   I don't know how copyright works but I watched that most when considering getting into ROF - it really makes the game look cool.

Congrats!

 

Zak, have to be looking at the wrong places but where is the "Usefull stuff" download page now?

 

 Like you mention somewhere that the Vanderstock Campaign can be downloaded for free now ...

Thanks Kelp! We're uploading all the useful stuff to a more troubleproof hosting. And the St.Mihel should be already available in the game interface.

Nice update to the webside and forum. I prefer the new look, splendid so far!

And all in all I very much love to see that RoF gets love and attention again.:)

Now lets hope, that we may see some new content arriving at some uncertain point in the future. :)

It looks so bland now... and the controls seem more complicated/glitchy.

Couldn't changes have been made without altering the core feel of the website?

While moving the only content that left untransferred was polls and user pics. 

 

 

Does that mean the old private messages are accessible somewhere? My mailboxes are empty, and I was using these to keep information.

Also, I don't see the demo upgrades in the store. Are they no longer in sale? Will old gift / retail codes for them be working?

I like the new look, and goodness knows it's long since time a Cart function was needed for the store, so kudos! :)

 

One item of concern for server accounts -- Where is the section to manage remote bans?  (It used to be in  Profile -> ban).

That is an issue because it means there is no way to ban a misbehaving player unless you actually catch them in real

time in-game -- that's a significant problem (imho)

PS>  : icon_e_salute : is  *too* long to type...  :S!:  is much more convenient for something used so often - any chance for a change there? 

 

PPS> Unless, I've missed seeing it somewhere, a button to go to the main RoF site from the forums would be handy too...

Edit: DOH! I did miss it - That BIG   "Rise of Flight" title at the top is actually a link -- tricky... :icon_e_biggrin:

I like the changes, although I'll miss the "oldie look". Now just waiting for the "usefull materials" is back to go on with skins and mission editor lessons (yes, i'm the nerdy one learning the ME  :icon_e_deadman: )

It's exciting to have the website open again and thanks for the Personalization pack! I'm glad I didn't decide to buy any of them at the last sale.  :icon_lol:

 

 

 

 

 

Speaking of which, is the occasional sale still to be expected at the RoF store?

 

 

 

 

Thanks again, guys.

Very nice work on the new site, it is a step in the right direction I think, I will miss the 'active topics' and some other things will be a while getting used to though.  Progress has it's casualties:)

One word though, myself and probably a lot of other members have unused gift codes, I can't find a way to access them.

Cheers

Rod

 

One week on and still no clue where my gift codes can be found.  Have they disappeared?

I t looks like you need to purchase something from the store in order to access the freebies. Since the EIII and DH2 mods are the only thing I dont have I'll have to wait until a new bird is released.

... Also, field modifications for Focker E.III and Airco DH.2 are available for free from now on too. ...
 
 
Good news for me, I have bought both the planes (without mods) since December 2012.
I can see DH2 mods in the store as it is shown in the first picture below. I have this mod.
 
ROF_01B_zpsrom3rzll.jpg
 
But ...
This is what I see in my profile - I don't have this mod.

ROF_02B_zpsiiwsepka.jpg
 
This is what I see in the game - the modifications are not available.
 
ROF_03B_zpsd8zjxmsf.jpg
 
 
It is the same with Fokker E III. Could anyone advise me how can I activate these free modifications please?

I read your post above, of course. But it is your estimation there, isn't it? If you are right, then the labels "FREE" and "You have" in the store would be little bit funny. :)

Eh, no. If they aren't showing up for you, send an email to customer support. The appropriate information to do this can be found on the Support page.

Hey guys,

My gift list still has a number of planes that I purchased on it and I have no idea how to access it anymore in order to give those planes to people, does anyone know how we check our list in this new format?

O_Rod, You are not alone, unfortunately. See here:

Hope they fix this soon, still no reply to my ticket. Anyone else lost the gift codes? Please chime in.
