  1. And to think, No.24 is a borrowed ship! Definite KP duty.
  2. During the fly-in? Odd. I saw lots of players.
  3. New 3rd Pursuit Group USAS skins are here (US93, US103). Current link you have is outdated - we don't use those skins anymore!!!! JG1's FC skins are here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ah9909uyne0zdpa/2020-0605_JG1FCPP.zip?dl=0
  4. Thanks again to J5 et al for setting up the communal awards system - it's added a great element to the community and chasing those medals was tons of stress fun! The prospect of eventually getting my paws on the 'Big One' certainly influenced my flying and added a whole new element to the game! There were plenty of pulse-quickening moments along the way - to be exact, my ship caught fire on no less than two occasions and somehow survived three collisions (two in Hunland, which I only just managed to glide back to my lines from!). Thankfully, despite all the Hun bullets I've caught over the last few months, she never broke apart on me in the air, even after the new DMs were introduced! I must just be lucky 😉 Salute to the Bosches, who never made it easy up there
  5. That pesky "Real World" has been getting in the way! Things over here are starting to stir back into life as the Covid lockdown has been easing, so I've had some catching up to do That being said - I've finally gotten around to getting issue No. 30 of the Chronicle ready! Apologies for the delay, all!
  6. The good thing about the 4.007 DM thread being shut down was that everybody got the chance to let the discussion breathe and get a little more in-game context. Personally, I think the following: 1) In the "weak" planes, you absolutely can keep your wings on, even after being seriously damaged - but, if you have someone engaging you then you essentially have to choose between tame manoeuvres and getting shot in the back, or proper evasive manoeuvres that pull your wings off. 2) Control surface damage still seems to be, just, far, far too frequent. During one training night I was doing a bit of sparring with one of the 103rd guys. We must have had about 20 duels - about 18 of which resulted in me shooting out one or more of his controls, or vice versa, with the first burst that landed. It might not have been clear from my comments regarding the DM in previous discussions, but I actually like the direction the Devs are taking - introducing more complexity and different outcomes to battle damage - I think it's great, and can create a more interesting experience! However, the current implementation of the new features does feel exaggerated to me. At the moment I think the Pfalz and D7 are exhibiting pretty good DM characteristics in the wing-shedding department - they are tough, and can certainly take a few bursts and continue to manoeuvre pretty hard - but doing anything extreme will take your wings off. I'd want to see the other planes come closer to those characteristics. Talbot & I are just about done collecting data from USAS combat reports and other period sources, with illuminating results. We're just working on formatting what we've collected into something presentable!
  7. Yep. Ain't like RoF - those Fs will get ya unless you clear out early enough!
  8. Keep meaning to do it, but keep forgetting! It's pretty amusing - looks like every piece that breaks off the D.VII 'spawns' an extra engine
  9. All dead, I'm afraid! Apart from one, who was just off having lunch 😄
  10. Awesome! My fave is "against all odds" I think I was in the middle of that big fur ball - I distinctly remember a very similar scrap and seeing two D.VIIs falling in flames within seconds of each other....and spotting a certain sky blue Camel in amongst the excitement Ended up cooking another D.VII down low before high-tailing it home! Ah, wasn't the old DM such fun?
  11. Bullshit. EVERY KNOWN SOURCE proves that the SPAD could easily withstand a bird strike. This needs fixed now.
  12. Yeah, just fired it up to look at some skins I'm working on...defo updated
  13. I think we should all pool our research together and write a book on combat damage during WW1 dogfights...raise some money for 1C to release FC Vol. 2
