    JG1_Hotlead's official Twitch stream thread!

    We had a highly-eventful night that started off with a bang...quite literally lol! (I crashed into JG1_Butzzell while we were maneuvering for a shot on Baer. This was totally my fault and could have been avoided.) However, up until that point, our 4 ship Halberstadt flight did very well against enemies from above, shooting one down and sending Baer away with bullet holes and more than likely picking pieces of Halberstadt out of his flying scarf. Afterwards, JG1 switched to flying Albatrosses and patrolled over enemy lines, bursting balloons and looking for trouble. I had one moment where I dove on a Nieuport 17 and then he completely disappeared, probably due to disconnection from the server. We concluded the evening in Rise of Flight by facing off against SPADs in a well-fought draw and then returning to base. Despite my dumb collision earlier in the evening, I managed to add 1 enemy aircraft and 1 balloon to my latest "streak," so we shall see how it goes from there. In Flying Circus, Butzzell, Talbot, and I conducted more outfighting tests with the Dr 1 and found that it seems to have an advantage over the Camel in a left turn, when both are loaded with 50% fuel. We also discovered what may be my new signature move...you'll have to watch the stream to find out. See you next week on Wargrounds!

    Last Thursday's Rise of Flight night started with...Metz. Ugh. Since we'd been on that map quite a few times recently, JG1 decided to trade German fighters for Allied bombers and knock out all the targets to roll the map as soon as possible. There was level-bombing, dive-bombing, and even some epic Handley-Page-vs-the-world dogfights! Afterwards, we returned to the German side of life and had some good coordinated patrols. All of us scored some good kills; personally, I ended up adding 2 more victories to my One Life to Live streak and my wingmen and I RTB'd safely afterwards. Well done lads! After that, it was off to Flying Circus for some more dogfighting tests between the SPADs, Camels, Dr 1s, and D.IIIas. Really looking forward to the new planes, they'll add some new flavor to the dogfighting scene! Anyway, here's the archived livestream: See you all on Cuban's next Thursday!

    Lol! Salute back at ya! I happened to be limping across the trenches in a Handley-Page and saw it go down. Nice shooting! Last night started with...Metz. Ugh.

    What is this update?

    Finally! You can also change the opacity of the map now too! Thank-you for listening, 777/1C!

    Work + college studies combined to make me a bit late for last Thursday's fly in again, but once I joined I got right into the action! Low overcast ceilings made for some very interesting fighting for sure! Bristols bombing targets down low, Dolphins causing mayhem at the cloud base, and SPADs lurking in the clear blue above - no matter where we went, there was action! Afterwards, Butzzell, Dudley, and I were joined by Baer as we tested out the new Camel's capabilities in Flying Circus. Our conclusion? The Camel there seems to have a pretty shocking flat flight to instant climb ability! Most engagements, I could handle 2 foes simultaneously and have a good shot at winning; when I was 1 on 1 with anyone, I could pretty much outclimb, outturn, and outspeed them. Dare I say it...but I think it may need to be nerfed juuust a tad. [Takes cover and puts on steel brodie helmet.] Not to the extent it was in ROF, but maybe just taken down a bit? Or perhaps it's fine and the competition (looking at you, Dr 1 and Pfalz) needs to be buffed just a bit. Following this, I had some entertaining Camel on Camel duels with GCF!

  9. All too often, the boys in the bombers get overlooked when compared to their more glamorous fighter counterparts. As a self-avowed fighter pilot myself, it's easy for me to watch them from a distance and not really appreciate all they do. With that in mind, this video is dedicated to all the mud-movers and ground-pounders in Rise of Flight. Long may the enemy ground forces tremble at the sound of your engines!

    I got on about an hour late for Thursday night's fly-in at Rise of Flight, but I got to participate in some nice furballs on the first map before we switched over to Gothas in the next map. We got 5 Gothas in a high-altitude formation at one point and level bombed an airfield, which was good fun! After this, I switched to Il-2 and tried some tanks. Conclusion? I suck as a tanker! To cap it all off, I went to Flying Circus and had some really entertaining 1 on 1 duels with a gentleman named GCF. Was a pleasure flying with you Sir! You can see the archived livestream here:

    Salute all and sundry! As some of you know, I run a weekly livestream on Twitch that focuses on WW1 aviation. With Flying Circus Vol 1 now in the books, I thought I'd start posting my livestreams in one consolidated thread here. My links stay active for 14 days, and then Twitch deletes them from the system, so I will make sure I edit this original post each time to feature the latest livestream. Latest Livestream: We had a highly-eventful night that started off with a bang...quite literally lol! (I crashed into JG1_Butzzell while we were maneuvering for a shot on Baer.

  13. Hey guys! Per the request of @GCF, here is an update on the Sunday fly in. JG1 server is now operational again and fixed. Apparently had some trouble with the .ini files that cause the server to shut down every 5 mins. @JG1_Butzzell has it all fixed now. We should be flying for a few hours from now. Salute!

    What Do You Listen? - Music Thread.

    @LukeFF That is one of my favorite Audio Adrenaline songs! 😎 Yeah, they never really were the same after Mark Stuart left. Have you ever heard of Seven Places? They're a lesser-known Christian rock band from the early 2000's. They didn't make many albums, but they ones they did make are really quite good IMHO. Their drummer went on the join Kutless, too if I remember right.

    @LukeFF Nice to see TobyMac and Michael Tate together! 👍 As far as Christian rock/pop from the 90s, I've always been partial to these 2 bands: Currently, the band I'm listening to most at work is Switchfoot:
