Is this what trolling is about? Can't really remember anymore, blocking people works too well in the forums I usually visit.

Hey buddy, are you asking me to be banned from this forum? Aren't you taking on too much of this? Maybe you should leave this resource yourself and go to the forums that you are used to?

S!
 
People in North America, especially the USA have some concerns about the glorification of past heroes that had questionable actions or deeds.  Specifically, some people are calling for a Native Americans day Holliday. They condemn  Columbus and wish to change Columbus day to Native American day.


People who have preserved their minds and remember the covenants of their parents must already unite to repel the maddened. Not only in the name of preserving the great history of America, but also in the name of preserving our history, our traditions, we will soon have to take up arms and wash with the blood of these morons, burn them in hell.

Здравствуйте Emely.

 

I wish to change the subject back to FiF. You will have to excuse me.

 

Can you please upload what ever track record you have of FiF ?

This was my first ever serious RoF event and would like to have a 

look at some of the action that I could not see. : - )

 

My duties in the mission were patrolling for enemy and intercepting them.

Luckily I was with Markov S! and we seemed to work together as a team quite well.

( for the short time we actually were able to...)

 

I did get one kill though! A Breg that was on a sneak attack. Unfortunately  

our AAA kill stole it off me! The swines. : - (

 

Next week I will be more ready! Learn the map, the objectives etc.

 

играть хорош !

 

S!

 

Knalp.

Attached File  Map fif - even map - 004.jpg   146.78KB   0 downloads

 

I am looking at a high visibility map, one that is instantly readable.

The in game maps are not very good. 

If it were possible to delete the quadrant lines and the "sector" numbers .. that would be awesome.

Also the "target icons" are naff, and the Roundels Crux etc.

 

It's an experiment but being stuck with not so great stuff baked in is a pain.

 

Also I need some kind of Anti Aliasing filter I can apply to make up

for Windows Image viewer not having one buit in.

( windows image viewer win 7 is the easiest viewer as it zooms with scroll wheel and  

move with left click.... what esle does that ??? )

Here is my next idea...

 

I just started spraying over the scruff with MS Paint.

 

Possibly a mod that removes all the loud nonsense?

What about tidying up the map? Hmm....

The stuff in the oval has been "fixed", compare to the rest of the map.

S! Butzzell.

 

Yes, the map I am looking at in the previous post, is the even map which you have posted above.

 

You may need to look at it closely to see the difference.

 

Attached File  Map fif - even map - master x 4 - grids - close up.jpg   254.55KB   0 downloads

 

Grid numbers in the top left corner, removed from centre.

Big round circles removed.

Clearer grid and quadrant lines.

 

For a small map where there is clustering it makes the map easier to read ( in my humble opinion )

a fan of the in game maps I am not.

 

It is of course a vanity project and no one needs pay any attention, however if   

people like this kind of thing I can try harder to make a good version.

We all like maps, right?

 

S!

 

Knalp.

 

PS I thought it might also dilute the arguing on this thread....

Butzzy, how many people were online in the FiF event?

 

I'm sorry, 4am start (for me) is a bit of a struggle. 

 

It looked pretty good going by emely's vid. 

 

I hope it continues and grows whether I can attend or not.  :icon_e_salute:

Hello ! My name is Aлександр ) There is not enough memory to record the entire event. Therefore, I turn on the track recording either on the beautiful takeoffs of all our squadron, or on interesting moments like the collision in the north this time. If you are interested, I can send you a recording of this battle as a track from the game in a private message on a google drive.

We had 46 total pilots.  Teams were fairly even.  Will get really interesting when we flip sides.  I have a feeling the tournament phase is going to be really close.

You're on the Blue Team, and Blue won that specific mission.

 

But... we still have three more missions to go in this phase of play.  And things are going to get really interesting.

I am pretty sure I saw thing come up in game saying Entente had won? ( Blue was Central for that mission )

or did I dream it.

 

Never mind. WE WON !!!! ha ha ha. I have never been on a winning team for anything !

 

I did my bit ! Attacked a Felixstowe and a Breguet !

S!

Hi! Now you can see that on my and on your computer the situation in battle is slightly different. I knew right away that you did hit my engine, although I saw that your bullets went far behind my plane. There is nothing wrong with that, the usual data desynchronization when the server is far away.
Nevertheless, even though the fight was short, it was more interesting than anything else that happened in this session :-) This is the first time I used HD.1 in an action, and I found something new for myself in the old game ;-)

And if someone say FC is a future of WW1 sims, nice joke :)
 

At the moment FC is a spoiled thing, which I personally am not able to use because of the new DM and of course also because of the limited set of planes that turn flights there into "Groundhog Day"

Currently ww1 simming has no future anywhere.

Not so much time will pass, and we will all die .. And then, the question of the future of ww1 simulators will completely cease to worry us)))

S! All

 

Update: 

 

We have done our first two sessions. For our next two sessions we switch sides.  Red team will be Central and Blue team will be Entente. That will be the end of Phase A. For Phase B we will advance the plane set and do four more sessions.

 

A glitch was found in one of the Central  Arty Spot Secondary. The vehicle unit at Bip was not spawning. Error found and corrected.

 

Regarding flying outside of the area marked on the map: You can fly anywhere you want to go. There are no rules on this.

It can be very dangerous. The map area shows the borders of where you will find targets. Inside this area flak AI is set to low. Outside this area flak AI is set to high and is very deadly.

The point is, I didn't want to talk about really bad and unforgivable things. There is also their silence .. it is long, insulting and humiliating. And it causes me to protest and anger. But let's not talk about it here, and you and I are well aware of these circumstances. Here is the theme of the FiF event and it is really successful this season! So let him remain so in the future)

We have already said a lot about this on another forum, and all possible words on this matter have been said. You are well aware of my opinion on this subject, your opinion is known to me. I would write a lot more - but why? I repeat again, this is a FiF theme, you shouldn't use it too often for other purposes. It's enough that whole squadrons have shit in their pants for fear that they will be suspected of protests against FC)
My suggestion is to voluntarily limit the topic to communication only about Rof! Rof is beautiful))

But onto brighter things .... RoF is beautiful and has a sale going. Should I buy the Hanriot? And the Sikorsky S-22 and S-16? I think they're the only crates I don't have.  :)

Buying a new plane at RoF is always something interesting)) However, only a few of them are fashionable online. You can meet Hanriot both on nff and on vintage. But s16, even in the past gay days, was almost impossible to see in a set of server aircraft.

Thanks for the feedback. I guess the S-22 hasn't been used much online either if at all? It's slow and poorly armed with just one Lewis. But it looks sensational! I must have it.

Good show. You are on Sir! I AM buying it, make no mistake.

 

I have it on good authority that Smiladon may start up the old Oceanic server. :) At last. Just when I thought we southerners were sunk!

 

We can fly at a civilised antipodean time ....  ;)

 

I just gotta work out how to fly a four engined flying machine.  :huh:  Keyboard I guess. I don't have all the accoutrements. I'm a simple simmer.

S! All

 

One more week of Phase A.

 

A few quick reminders:

 

A flak fence runs down the middle of  No Mans Land. You want to be at 1000 meters or higher. ( This means you Gen Markof )

 

Flak inside the playing map is set to low. There is flak outside the borders and it is set to high. Not just along the front but around the borders. You can fly outside the map area but it is dangerous.

 

WARNING!  Time change in Europe. For European players, the start time will be one hour EARLIER.

 

Plane set for Phase B is being finalized. It will be posted very soon.
