Approach from the west
a railway bridge on your left


I did the same Nova did, coming from the west I took the first best road and did the touch and go while the road you are describing actually runs north-south if I am not mistaken. You could actually zoom in on the map and draw it in next time ;)

There is a railway bridge to the east and west of that city btw, at least in the summer version.

Here is the video, still being processed by youtube though.
Never said I was a good map reader :lol: but that street looks just as difficult so either counts each snarlers choice, impressive video Imp, looks like I gotta make another medal, I'm gonna have to find something real hard for a challange, what about a touch and go train can it be done :?:

It was mentioned about the EFC award invirted under a bridge that is only one way of winning the award it can be anything deamed as Exceptional Flying, i.e dipping a wing tip in water without crashing, touch and go on water without crashing, lets see those exceptional flying videos and if its nail biting, edge of seat stuff we will look at a EFC award, go for it snarlers :idea:

Oh right, wasn't sure :D In that case I am honoured to accept the award :D :D :D


This is really great, if people ever start using real medals in their signature they will have a hard time competing with these :lol: Imo this is a tiny bit like the achievements on steam :) apart from the lovely ones we already have ingame of course

With your medals looking better and better the recent challenge seems almost menial to get the recent one :)

Is this to your liking now? For future medals maybe you could try to have a height of 300 pixel and something bettween 180 and 240 width for better resizing to match with the current ones? The lastest one turns into 91x100 for reference, the other two are 70x100 and 60x100 respectively.

I was thinking of a challenge for snarlers in the theatre of Last Man Standing for the LMS award, but it would take someone who new what they were doing in mission making (that's not me), but I'm not sure if it would effect your leader-board standings?
The plan is a selected area on a server all meet there and one massive shoot up at the OK coral, last man standing wins the award, but it would mean shooting down friendly as well, hence not sure about your leader board ratings, anyone who wants to expand this idea jump in, I will try to make a medal of outstanding quality for this, what do you think good or awful idea :? :?:

Sounds great :) Somebody needs to make a mission and then we need to agree on a time and on the planes involved. I suppose every player should spawn on it's own in a starlike pattern so we don't shoot each other during take off? We should also set a fuel or time limit so people don't just fly off.

For the plane, I'd like to suggest the Albatros D.Va. Everyone has it, it's easy to fly and it can't carry as much fuel as some entente planes. The Dr.I would be the obvious choice but this way camel/entente pilots can also participate.

I was thinking no shooting till say reached the area a preselected umpire (one of the players) says go then its a free for all, to alleviate the luck factor have it over 4 rounds on the same night, in the event of a draw out of the 4 rounds, the 2 equal shoot, it out while the rest spectate, if you get a runner they must return to the area within 2 Min's or before time out or they forfeit :twisted:

Excellent idea all in a DVa makes it fair, gives the less experienced pilots (me) a chance against the camel & DR1 experts, who's the volunteer to set the mission up, I will get onto the medal right away.

Do you guys think it would be a little too easy for someone to stay outside the furball until there is just one other person left (who is low on ammo and has a few holes in the canvas)? Then it's just a one on one.

Yea, good catch. We need a defined zone that cannot be vacated, something like 500 or 1000m radius, Sensenmann did this in his duel mission I believe.

Should also think about setting minimum number participants for the mission to grant an award. If three guys show up, it's not the same as if there are a dozen, IMO.

Will this be held once, or monthly, or on-demand?

I'm good at asking questions. I leave the answering to others.

Monthly sounds good and if we set an amount of times won, it would be no problem to make an award to be held for the year, suggestions welcome for the name of that award, probably with a very arty certificate to hang in your sim room.
