How did you get swatstickas on your plains? are they just skins or can you turn them onn and off?

@Seth

Pleeease, next time, dont quote all them pics, unneccessary load to the thread. :up:


And as for the swastikas, yes those are painted to the skin, BUT you can get them to show up for the stock markings by using a program called IL2Stab:

It also changed few more things, like adds the correct finnish markings (blue swastika standing on it's foot).

@Tater

Nice, was just yesterday reading the 2 BoB map threads "over there" and only goes to show how lazy Oleg and his mapmakers were for IL2. Very detailed work coming hopefully soon. :up:

Another 2 good sorties last night with JG53, just forgot to record track from the first sortie. :damn:

Anyways, the 2nd sortie on 27th of October 1942 was a task of JG53 escorting a captured Russian Yak-9 fighter, flown by Gefreiter Morts from our home base to a more safe, rear airfield for study and test flights.

We had 8 escorts + the Yak-9 on our flight. We made contact with the rather large force of 11-14 Russian fighters somewhere around midtrip to the rear field. The losses for us were extraordinary high, with 4 BF109s wrecked from which 3 resulted in a KIA (2 109s were lost in an midair collision during the dogfight).

We downed all of the intercepting fighters and despite our heavy losses, managed to escort the captured Yak-9 to our target, where it was slightly damaged on a failed landing.

LT. James Plainviews first kill in his new Sopwith Camel. He is by far the highest rated pilot of RFC-46, with his 31 claims and 16 comfirmed kills! Let's see how long his luck will last...

Yet another furball over Ypres! The town has seen alot of these since the third battle of Ypres (the Battle of Passchendaele) was fought. Although the battle is more or less over, the germans send alot of patrols in the area.

And once again, Captain (former LT) James Plainview is victorious!

I have to tell you lads, I'm getting rather fond of him. 41 claims, 21 comfirmed.

Biggles 04-10-2008 05:00 PM

Sorry for doublepost...

Nearly the end for a promising pilot! Out of ammo, and then I got hammered by an Albatros on a low altitude, managed to take down the bird in a hurry, was leaking fuel like nothing of this world. Plane beyond repair. Lived to tell the tale though.

Another ace goes down at the hands of James Plainview! 48 claims, 33 comfirmed. February 1918.

Major James Plainview makes history (or, to be more precise, changes it) when he shoots down Manfred Von Richthofen a.k.a the Red Baron, over Ypres, February 1918.

Thank you i appreciate it. Ill try and remember not to quote unncecary pictures too. ty

Three questions:

Does your AI squad in Over Flanders Fields score lots of kills? Or do they rarely shoot down other pilots?


If Franz von Hohn and James Plainview had a dogfight, who would win? :hmm:



Is that German gunner in the two-seater wearing a watch cap?

HunterICX 04-14-2008 05:49 AM

1: Does your AI squad in Over Flanders Fields score lots of kills? Or do they rarely shoot down other pilots?


A: They do on the scoreboard which is in the campaign menu, but I dont think the have the same scoring system as you have when they score a kill in the game I can be wrong ofcourse as I havent really kept an eye on it. also In game Phase2 I have the impresion that the friendly AI is rather dull, they seem to improved it a lot in Phase 3 (Payware thought) so the AI is more active then they are in Phase 2
check out the Phase 3 Trailer here: http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=132553

2: If Franz von Hohn and James Plainview had a dogfight, who would win?

A: one of them for sure, but I think the outcome would be random.

3:Is that German gunner in the two-seater wearing a watch cap?

A: havent flewn in a German 2 seater so cant answer that one.

1. They do score some kills. But they're not very good at the flying part though...during dogfights on low altitude, they have a tendency to hug the ground, with no real reason...

2. James Plainview, if he flew his Sopwith Camel. The Camel can out maneuver any Albatros with it's incredibly sharp right turn (really lads, that right turn of the Camel has saved my butt a whole bunch of times).

3. He was referring to one of my earlier pictures Hunter (I guess...) I really don't know, I do know that he managed to get some hits on my Pup, but nothing near as fatal as I usually get...

Oh, and here is James Plainview, shooting down a Fokker DV.II, arguably the best plane of the war. Since these buggers started to show up around Douai, things have turned pretty nasty for the lads of RFC-46.

Wow, You beat Lothar von Richthofen of Germay's record of 40 (confirmed). :up:
That puts you just above Georges F. Madon of France as the 24th best WW1 Pilot and the 6th best British Pilot :up:.
