Thanks for the up date.  Esp. 12 & 17.  Flying FW190 just became much more enjoyable.   :)

Cool thx. I like the sound of matchmaking in an online MP campaign to allow casual flyers to join a dynamic campaign server against players with similar skills. I don't have hours to spend in MP like in the old days, taking twenty minutes just to form up before heading across the Channel, getting shot down and then waiting for the mission to end and doing it again... One hour max from sign on to parachute out of my flaming wreck, that's my hobby time these days :)

 

My ideal? I'd love to be able to sign into a dynamic campaign, find a formation of He111s or PE2s on the board/map (can be on the ground, taking off, or already en mission) comprising either bots, or players and bots, frag into the cockpit of one of the bots, and take over the machine to join the fight.

 

The mission scenario doesnt have to be sophisticated. Waves of bombers/fighter bombers/escorts attacking target, squadrons of fighters defending, your team wins if enemy target destroyed X% before your own is target destroyed. We have these on CoD servers (without the bot/matchmaking thing).

 

I know this would mean MP players having to put up with some percentage of bots in their game, but if it actually meant you got to take on formations of escorted bombers in the MP instead of just the usual Team Deathmatch, or Capture the Flag, wouldn't it be worth putting up with a few bots, never knowing if that dumb bot you are chasing might suddenly get itself a live pilot?

 

Would be a bit like Agents in the Matrix.

Finally FM fixes (FW190). Thank you for that team!.

 

 

 

As soon as I realized the great potential of Rise of Flight with its Digital Nature engine and high fidelity simulation of flight

:o:

Every experienced mission builder and server hoster knows its limitations since first ROF days (forget large MP battles)....not to mention ME which is made for pros only...But I dont want to spoil the party, great update (Im talking about fix list)

Thanks guys for the updates, particularly 12-17 and 21. I won't be able to fly until tomorrow night. Does 12 mean the supercharger switching has been fixed? Does 21 mean there are some new SP, non campaign, missions? If so, excellent.

 

My confidence in the game is being restored. I'd give you an 8 right now. Lets get it up to 9 before release ;)

 

Thanks again.

Supercharger-Claim was deemed false in 'FM Claims respond: 3.'

It addresses 'FM Claims respond: 2. Fw 190 A-3 climb rate in game is less than it's noted in reports.', though.

Good update with some very important points, thank you Zak and team for all your hard work! Also very nice to see SYN get the attention they deserve; they have done a whole lot for BoS before it`s even released!

That was a regular occurrence in the Eagles Nest server, and often in the current Syndicate server :)

And finally, they fixed the 190! :biggrin: I just wish my settings wouldn't change after every update.

no connection to master server - anyone know if it's down ?

 

You guys do realize they are pushing an update out today, and this could well be them preparing the server for the update maybe??

On one end you've got fanatics like me where these guys walk on water (all due respects to the world's best) and feel the product is way underpriced, especially considering it's the most important piece of software on the planet; And on the other, you've got the fanatics whose lives have been ruined because they can't refuel and rearm after RTB without re-spawning, especially considering it's the most important piece of software on the planet.

 

It's an impassioned community.  We want it all, and we want it right now.

 

Finally, you've got these developers, who fueled by their passion for software, aviation history, and maybe a few 'test' flights, do their own special grind for us. 

 

The product will stand tall on its own merit.  We begged 777 to do a WW2 sim, and if they've yet to deliver beyond our wildest dreams, the best is yet to come! 

 

I salute the world's most demanding community, 1C , 777, and especially the DEV team for delivering a truly amazing experience.   

 

Thank y'all!  S!

Which fits the Eastern Front perfectly.

 

so no BoB or 8th air force scenarios for you? At least you will save money on expansions you wont have to buy....sorry mate I had to take the piss out of you on that one....you didn't think that one through :)

Well, I suspect that's a few years down the road and by then we'll see another evolution of this engine I'm quite sure. It's just not applicable until it happens, you know?

 

That's supposing the devs don't get burned out sooner than later. Everyone remembers the famous head of the previous series, and he bowed out. Too much headache from so many unrelenting and demanding individuals for so very little return.

What dragon76 was ultimately saying was that less planes in MP is a step backwards not forwards, I cannot find the video but there was a guy who put like 300 TB3? ME323? in a co-op for 1946...that was 46 then there is CloD

1946

CLoD

 

100 planes over London.

 

my 3 main concerns right now are

1. FMB

2. skins

3. no mandatory unlocks for MP arena.
