  1.

  2. @Cthulhus I wouldn’t worry about the FC mission success or failure notifications. File your combat reports, kills or no kills. You will be able to generate and move on to the next mission regardless. Any mission you survive is a success in the end! 😜
  3. Ya, it's a bit odd. It matches the artist's illustration, even though the date is Mar.'18. https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/40237-szelljr-skindeposit-ww-1-®/ I’ll look into it when I get back to my desktop. S!
  4. Currently, I’m trying to knock out as many Jasta default skins as possible. Let me know what ur looking for and I can move it to the top of my to-do list. S!
  5. You’re welcome, Vander. I’m still trying to track down some more but I’m having difficulties accessing @GCF’s skin directory. Hopefully I can wrap up the Dr1 skins later today. S!
  6. I would definitely hope Flying Circus is not in its “final state”. It has just been released, and I would expect many more improvements and added content in the near future. Cheers!
  7. I've been trying to fill out any missing Dr.1 squadron defaults, and I noticed a problem with the Dr.1 template (my old nemesis, the "Grease" layer in the Weathering group), which wouldn't allow colors to be visible on one edge of the elevator surface (see the attached image below). It existed on all of my previous skins that had colored tail surfaces, so I've updated those Dr.1 skins to eliminate this error. Obviously it's not a big deal for those who have previously downloaded any of those old skins, but the names are the same so you can always download and replace any of those old skins if you wish. Some of the older skins may have had a few minor improvements included since my working file has progressed over time. I've noted the skins that have been updated. S!
  8. Thanks for pinning this post. Is @GCF still adding skins to this? I thought (maybe) @US93_Larner has taken the baton since last summer? Not sure ... * still dreaming of our own FC historical/fictional threads in the skins forum *
  9. @Picchio The answer to your question is a resounding yes. FC has just been released, and I think Pat had about a week to incorporate all the new WWI elements into PWCG. Pat is constantly updating PWCG based on FC updates and improvements, combined with all the user feedback he receives. I enjoyed RoF career mode, but it couldn’t hold a candle to PWCG after it developed over time. Whatever limitations PWCG now has will soon be forgotten history as long as 1C doesn’t completely cut off FC development. I’m sure you will see more and more content and better mission variety in PWCG, just give it a little time. S!
  10. FYI - it’s not even possible for me to wear glasses in the Odyssey+ headset (the frame fits, but the O+ lenses are too close to my eyes so the lenses touch). I guess it’s not too expensive to have prescription lenses made for your VR headset though. How cool is that? https://widmovr.com
  11. Hi, SeanD. I have the Odyssey+ and I don’t have any problems using the headset without my reading glasses. I’m not sure if it’s the same for those who are short-sighted. Anyway, I don’t feel I can offer a completely honest review of VR due to my system being a bit too weak for VR (i7-3770k & GTX1060). I knew I would need to upgrade my pc eventually, but I will say that my experience with VR has been positive enough to convince me to hurry up and spend the extra money for a really great system. The immersion is fantastic and you can really feel the speed and altitude of your aircraft, and for me, landings are way easier in VR. I just miss the resolution you get with a monitor. My graphic settings are pretty low, so I’ll be thrilled once I have my new system up and running. I’m guessing it might be a little painful to make the switch to VR from a 34” 4K monitor. Hope that helps! S! Edit: I just watched a YouTube video today on the subject of VR and flight sims. You might find it interesting.
  12. I'm bumping this for any Central skinners who may have missed this originally. S!

  14. I like the sound of the ai improvements; 16. AI pilots won't crash into the ground while doing a defense spiral maneuver;17. AI pilots won't get stuck in a shallow dive during a defense maneuver;18. AI pilots won't attempt dangerous evasion maneuvers at low altitudes which caused them to crash; including my favorite... 19. AI pilots won't get too excited following a falling target and crash into the ground after it; 😂
  15. +1 We don't need 1C to distribute them, just please allow us to post them in the forum, separated by: Game, Historical, Fictional, and Plane Set. Loosen the restrictions and voting on fictional skins, and set up a method to support and utilize historical skins in game.
  16. This may be a dumb question, but can we not download official skins that appear in Flying Circus like we could in RoF? If they are not available to distribute, how can mission makers (like PWCG) assign them in campaigns or missions? Thanks in advance for any help. S!
  17. I’ll start with all of the J11 DR1 skins. If I didn’t already create them, I know who did and where to get them. I have an early J11 default (based on MvR’s 127/17 DR1) that I’ve never published. I’ll edit this post with links to my skins, or the original painter’s skin (provided they approve).

His Dr1 425/17 was thought to have been photographed at Lechelle during that time, but there are others that believe the all-red Dr1 was actually 177/17 (which is why there are two different versions of 177/17). More to come ...
  18. @SYN_Vander I’d be happy to provide any DR1 skins you need. I’ve been putting off making squadron skins long enough, but I can turn them out quickly. The aces probably already exist, but I might need to update a few with the iron cross. Either way, I’ll provide the links (for the existing skins) or modify those if they have the balkenkreuz. S!
  19. Not to derail the talk surrounding @SYN_Vander’s noble efforts to provide even more SP campaign support with his excellent mission creator, but I would like to respond to the original post ... At first, I would probably agree that it’s not unreasonable to feel a little disappointed in FC at this stage. But as others have already pointed out, we are comparing FC to RoF that had years of post-release development. I feel that if 1C invested the same amount of resources into FC that 777 did into RoF, this argument would be way less viable. Personally, I would have preferred they started with a 1917 plane set and DFW’s and RE8’s as the backbone of the 2-seater operations. I feel like that would lend to better mission variety, but maybe 1C will offer them as collector planes before embarking on FC2. Even with any minor disappointments about the initial state of FC, the improvements are very noticeable after spending a few hours in the game. I’m amazed at the improvement with the damage models, particularly when planes drift into each other in air and their wings don’t disintegrate like they did in RoF. It looks and feels so much more authentic. A lot of players have pointed out the ai improvements and I would agree 100%. I would love to see them continue to improve, but they are already better than RoF. The map is small, but it is beautiful. We’ve rid ourselves of the scourge of ambient flak, and added the bonus of shelling in NML. Speaking of no man’s land, they’ve also added details like pill boxes and barbed wire, and even though they kind of look a bit too bright to me, it’s nice to see and better than what we had in RoF. Hopefully some of these things will be improved graphically in the future. Overall, I haven’t spent that many hours in FC but I’m already convinced to invest in a new PC that can better support my VR headset (another bonus over RoF), and I will eagerly support more offerings from 1C for FC. I’m hoping I have a lot of company in that regard. S!
  20. Cool! Thanks, Panther! I’ll definitely check it out. S!
  21. @Gordon200 thanks! I’ll try that method.
  22. Yeah, don’t even get me started on that issue. Where do these headset manufacturers think the hdmi plugs are for our headsets?! There’s no way I’m gonna slide out my desktop and navigate through a dozen other cords to plug in my headset every time I want to use it. Would it be so difficult to give us a power on/off switch for gosh sake?!?! i digress... anyway, I leave it plugged in all the time and I manually close the WMR window after I start up my PC, unless I’m going to use VR right away. It wakes up whenever I actually put them on, so it always works great the first time.
  23. Thanks @CDRSEABEE. Are you able to get back in? I can’t unless I restart my PC.
  24. Thanks for the reply. I do close everything, and then I perform my usual VR startup sequence (which may or may not be correct), and everything seems normal until I launch IL-2. When I do, instead of seeing the exploding triangles graphic, the split screen IL-2 window opens up and I don’t know how to exit the beach house and enter the game. I probably need a new way to launch IL-2. The best way that I know how, is: 1) I put on my headset and I’m told to look around and then I’m sent to the WMR beach house. 2) I navigate to my desktop display that is projected on my beach house wall, and I select my desktop to activate it. 3) I double click the IL-2 icon on my desktop and click on START once the launcher is done loading. 4) I see the exploding triangle graphic as IL-2 loads and I am soon inside the hangar where I am asked to login or play offline. Like I said, maybe there’s a better way to launch IL-2. I’d love to hear of a better way, especially if it doesn’t require removing and refitting my headset repeatedly (which I don’t need to do with my current routine). S!
