Shame it wasn't the Channel map, just for a change from that bloody Island !

 

Agreed on that sentiment - although I guess a lot of newbs won't have the Channel map?

 

There's a great Vintage Mission using the Channel map - called "Channel Bombers" or "Bombers Channel" or something like that, which focuses on submarine hunting. It's so much fun! You have to try and spot the sub's periscopes, which is insanely hard but very rewarding when it happens. You then bomb and try to surface the sub, then destroy it.

 

I have no idea how hard that was to implement, but if there's any way we could modify the existing "Sub Hunt" map to feature it, that would be so cool.

 

S! guys and thanks for keeping these servers going. I will try the new map on Ma & Pa's tonight!

That would be a fun map but with the S-16 with or without the D.H.2.

Gentlemen,

     Please help me welcome the newest member to the =NFF= Team!

     He is flying now with the name '=NFF=Ace Rimmer.'   He's been enjoying and helping on both of our Servers for well over a year.  His competitors and companions speak extremely well of him.  He is known for his flying skills and competitiveness.  But, he also takes time to assist with newer patrons of 'Multiplayer.' 

     He resides in the Czech Republic.  He is well known as a historian of WWI Aircraft Colors and paint schemes.  He and his wife also own and manage horse stables where they teach riding techniques and discipline.

     He is a welcome new member of our small group. 

     Take care Gentlemen and enjoy having fun on both our 'NFF' Servers.

     Sincerely,

     Philemmett

     Phil =NFF=Patriarch

I wonder could you clarify; is he a fully-baked admin or another ROFCON jockey?

:ph34r:

 

I regard it of paramount importance that when addressing an apparent administrator, the clientele has an inherent right to be aware of that individual's level of exhaltation. For instance should one discover something (relatively) wrong in an NFF server, one should be able to discern whether the person to whom they report the problem is actually in a position to effect a remedy, or is but a base underling, constrained in his powers and obliged to suffer the humiliation nay ignominy of having to pass-on the report to another, invariably via the server's forum which anyone could do just as easily.

That's how it concerns me.

Dear Arty, I've figured it out (ana bout time too). What you speak of is an internal matter, so you can take your prop anger elsewhere...

 

But we all know you love to fly and hang around NFF servers - so why not hang around some more, show a little aptitude for helping out the noobs, then maybe soon you'll be invited to wear the prestigeous =NFF= tag too !

Considering your obsession with all things NFF it would be the logical next step for you to take.

 

You do realise that your life is ebbing away with every breath you take ? So I'd ask yourself if all this NFF huffing and puffing couldn't be put to better use..

 

=NFF=Effem - it does have a certain ring to it ;)

So I was thinking you guys should have a tournament of some sorts, Maybe have 2 vs 2. Pick a wing man and have different category's. every one fly's the same plane then allied vs central and so on. You could use both servers. Not sure how your servers will handle too many players at once so you might need to have time slots for so many fights.

 

Wasn't there a tournament like this at some time a while back, Maybe you can use that set up if it's still around.

GrahamshereGT,

    Your suggestion is taken with a 'grain of salt!' 

    We have had, in the past, different offerings for pilots to join others in contests i.e. obstacle course challenges, timing exercises, competition shooting, and various 'teaching' sessions on interesting and complex topics.  All of which, initially, were well attended and received.

    Over time these 'forums' turned into exercises much like 'herding cats.'  It was very difficult to maintain structure and commitment. 

    The Gentlemen who were in charge, over time, became frustrated and worn out from all their efforts.  I suspect that's a natural phenomena of trying to organize people from different age groups, countries, and background.  They were very successful as long as they lasted.

    It became evident that our purpose if offering =NFF= was to encourage people to do just what they wanted to do.  The 'organized' portion of all of our Maps is to allow skilled and soon-to-be-skilled individuals to learn the art of flying these ancient aircraft.  Many times these fun exercises turn into very competitive 'shooting opportunities.' 

   You must understand that both =NFF= Servers are 'Open.'  We have no restrictions on flying with us except civility and honorable behavior.  People who violate these simple rules of conduct are quickly 'banned' of 'kicked' from our Servers.

   There are no current plans to offer additional, organized programs. 

   We sincerely thank you for suggesting some offerings in the future.  Perhaps you'd like to be the sponsor of one???

   Thank you for interest in =NFF= Sir.

   Philemmett

   Phil =NFF=Patriarch

Really good idea with the bombing and striffing map guys, But can I suggest with the air start can it be higher like 6000ft, or pull the airdromes back further so we can climb. Would be great for high alt bombing practice.

Gentlemen,

     It is truly encouraging that some of you were disturbed that both '=NFF=' Servers were temporarily off line.  It means to us that some of you sincerely care about the availability, creativity, and the challenge of our 'Maps' that our Team provides. 

     We hope that some day you'll understand that providing this is gratuitous.  No-one is ever charged for their use.  The Gentlemen who put them together do it out of their own free will.  The time and effort they extend is for your enjoyment and pleasure. 

     It is our sincere hope that you'll help some of the 'Newer' pilots enjoy all that 'RoF' has to offer. 

     When you find it necessary to criticize our efforts, we'd ask you to think twice.  When you take the time to analyze any of their construction, take a little more time to add some constructive suggestions. 

     The Gentlemen who spend so much time creating them would sincerely appreciate positive recommendations.  It is a waste of your time, and theirs, to extol 'pot shots' at them that are not constructive.

     Our wholehearted thanks go to our 'Magician' who keeps them running at full speed 24/7.  Without him there would not be =NFF=.

     Enjoy what we have to offer.  That's what we are all about.

     Very Sincerely,

     PhilEmmett

     Phil =NFF=Patriarch

So I'm new to multiplayer but thought I'd give it a shot.

 

Twice now, I have come on to this server and have been team killed without anything being done about it.

 

The last round, a guy named Tristan strafed the German aerodrome, not even letting people take off. He shot at more than just me. He was identified and nothing was done about it. It was suggested that I should just join allies.

 

Real fucking nice guys. Very few people left wanting to play this game, I would think that you would do more to keep new players interested. I think I will steer clear of this server.

You're by no means the first to have such a disappointing experience, and consequently to be unimpressed by the lack of regulation in that environment.

Fortunately there are some more-elevated alternatives; inevitably the cream rising to the top. it's really just a question of aiming higher in one's selection.

It happens spacemarx, but fortunately not that often. You just need to grow a pair and get over it, and swearing on this forum is just as much a no no as team killing on a server btw.

Were there admin on at the time (=NFF=) ? Did you vote to kick them ? Have you been to the NFF Forum ?

 

The reality is that NFF is, and has been for a long time, the most populous fast action server.. although there have been changes of late which have made it not so 'fast'.

As for the "cream rising to the top"... well just look at the numbers !!

 

You need a thick skin and a brass neck to play this game sometimes, just remember it is a game.

And btw I have no problems returning friendly fire if any comes my way ;)

I was on when this happened and there was some confusion. Was it team killing or vulching ? Personally I haven't seen Tristan misbehave in the past.

The same thing happened to SpadjockeyGT, a few guys jumped in an HP and shot him up while in a camel on the field, happed twice then he did a dumb thing and shot back, they voted to kick him and now he's banned for 30 days.  Guess he was frustrated and can't blame him on that.

That shouldn't have happened. Was the ban set by the moderators or is that the time set by getting kicked ?

 

I shoot Gary's rudder off with my pistol while he's parked almost every time I come in....haven't been banned tho.

As soon as he got kicked from the server he got banned, no admin was on the server. Just him and 3 others. He got the countdown for so many hrs, adding to 30 days. I know Spad's a good guy and never causes any problems so I was surprised he got banned. Hope an admin can look into this for him,

The others probably just voted to ban him rather than kick; it would still have displayed as a kick followed by a ban. Either way it's only a profile ban, since NFF just runs as a zombie server with no assisting application to enforce account exclusions. If he really feels the urge to return, all he has to do is use another name.

I'm sure you wouldn't have this kind of behavior over on arty's server, spacemarx. Simply because his server is perpetually empty.  :icon_e_wink:

There is nothing to set straight here. NFF offers two servers for anyone to fly in, 24/7. The only way to get banned is to break one of 2 or 3 rules that they have in place. There is no "donate here button" anywhere within NFF's website, nor will you ever be asked for anything except your participation in the fun of the game.  There will always be trolls, or ass hats trying to ruin someones experience in ANY game. GET OVER IT !

As far as "just running a zombie server", call it what you will. It remains to be one of the most populated servers in RoF, most of the time.  This is not kindergarten, and people shouldn't have to be monitored or told not to run with scissors or they will get a time out in the corner. If someone pushes hard enough, they get a player ID ban, or so I'm told. Nobody has ever been perma-banned from NFF. Not because they can't do it, but because they wont do it. All I would say about the complaint at hand is, if you don't like the server you are playing in, find another server that suits you.

Sorry, didn't want to start a war. But as we all know Spadjocky is a great guy, did something wrong by shooting back at 3 others in an HP and on the same side, but they did this repeatedly so he got fed up. They decide to press ban and next thing you know he's banned. So looks to me that you can get a bunch of trolls in and ban pilots they don't like.

In case your all wondering what I'm talking about with Klugermann being my wanna be little sister, seem he like's using my last name in his little fun and games. Which is fine, soon as he has no one else to look up too.
