Greetings all! Just wanted to update all on the status of the Vintage Mission Sunday server. With the initial success and building momentum of Flying Circus Vol.I, the original Cuban/J2SteveF Syndicate Server along with our stats page was decommissioned.
I have reinstated it temporarily on a US based server and have plans to keep running it (minus a stats page) until we at least get an Arras map for Flying Circus. We will mainly focus on early war maps that give us a plane set different than we currently have in Flying Circus.
Dont worry US103, we'll provide Spad 150's on the early war maps when we can
This is to provide a broader experience for the sim community and to minimize overlap. Of course we'll still run the occasional Channel Map, as this is exclusive ROF content as well I hope to run all the favorite maps at least one more time before we consider shutting her down, but of course it all depends on numbers.
I have personally only flown one multiplayer session in the new FC during Jasta 5's great Black Sept. campaign and I must say it was impressive. I'm very optimistic that once we have a map and perhaps a few more aircraft, this sim genre will experience a rebirth and generate great multiplayer action in the virtual skies once again! I really think great things are just on the horizon for our small community.
Of course at some point, old must give way to new and we'll retire the VM Sunday Missions, perhaps with a grand finale Eagle of Lille Tournament event, courtesy of Jasta99.
Until then gentlemen we will continue our great Sunday afternoon/evening tradition of great fights, narrow escapes and a little friendly competition, as always. Thanks to all who have flown and continue to fly on these epic maps, provided so generously by the original Syndicate Squadron of ROF.
J2 SteveF and myself have been pleasantly surprised at the participation and kind words over the last two years and have been honored to host for you all. Hope to see you all in the air soon, Salute!
