hi all

The Flying Circus weekly mass dogfight event is on this Sunday again for its 3rd week, this Sunday. the first week we hit 17 players online, second week, we hit 23 players at one point, for 4 hours i was online, there where 16+ players online stable for over 4 hours before i had to leave.  

 

Thank you very much to all who participated !   S!

 

The plans are, when more servers come online, we will swap every 2 weeks to a different server, to keep it fresh and to show case new severs as they come online, if anyone would like to nominate a new server, please feel free to contact me. if anyone has any new ideas or thoughts or feed back, negative or positive, please feel free again to contact me.

Please share this event far and wide, all i ever want, is more people to fill me full of lead ! i have started a scrap lead business. so " Bring Out Your Lead !"

 

There is a Poll to chose the name of the weekly Flying Circus Sunday mass dogfight event, it will end 1 hour before the start of the event on Sunday, feel free to get you vote in here

 

Last Sundays event was the first Flying Circus Custom Skin enabled mass dogfight event, was great to see all the custom skins flying in the air, great work and a big thank you to all the Flying Circus Custom Skin Designers, your work is excellent and adds a whole new dimension to the game when you can know you you are fighting against and who is who in the air.

if you would like to see skins in game, enable the in the in game settings to enable skins. also please feel free to download the Mass Flying circus custom skin bundle, made up of most Flying Circus skins on the forum, around 200 skins now , being updated every few days, NOT made by me , i just collected and bundled them, the thread is here

Hope to see you all in the skies on Sunday !

 

S!

Paul

Central time US/Canadian??? No one knows when THAT is (except for the Canadians I guess)! :russian_ru:

 

Can you give also server time or Greenwich Main Time?

good morning all !

 

since this is now going to be a weekly event, i am interested in a name for the event, i was wondering if anyone has any suggestions, for a catchy event name, please post here, any names that you would like to nominate, i will, after the event on sunday, post a poll with these suggested names in it.

any ideas and suggestions would be well appreciated, think it would be nice for the people who partake in the event get to choose the name of the event.

 

S!

thanks

Bit long maybe, and sorry for para-phrasing Bonio (your local UN Rep).

very good, i like it, not only a catchy name "Sunday Bloody Sunday" but an event headline as well "This Is Not a Rebel Event, This Is Sunday Bloody Sunday"and fits in excellent with the disagreements about this event. my hat off to you Sir, well thought up. i will deffinately include it in the poll !

All event name suggestions will be put up, for the members to choose from, in a poll, that i plan to start after the event on Sunday night, it will be a three day poll, ending Wednesday, as i would like to give the results of the poll Wednesday night and then start advertising the next weeks event with its new name.

so feel free to let your imagination take over and post your ideas, either single ones or multiple ideas, all will be included and appreciate.

 

S!

what about mixing Talbots idea in it:
"This Is Not a Rebel Event, This Is Sunday Bloody Gunday"
?
Could also clip it a bit:
"No Rebel Event, But Sunday Bloody Gunday"

Or if you were smart, you could just drop the Under a Blood Red Sky meme altogether, and stop the sloganeering stuff.  People will embrace a game on it's merits.

"sloganeering" i must admit i had to google that one, if i understand your comment, i think you get the idea wrong no trying to convince , preswade, or codule any one into anything, just needed a name for event, and thought we could have a bit of fun deciding on it together, instead of me just making one up. 🙂

Yup, today was great and I could fly for 3 hours, with more than 20 players for almost 2/3 of the time. But I did not have time to load most of the skins! And the Camels did some catching up lately, although the Dr.1s are still dominating the turnfight. :dance: And it is good to see some Spads for a change (but the D7s are coming!).

I had tons of fun flying around in the Spad this afternoon.  Took the Camel out once... Gonna need more practice in that one. heh.

 

I think my favorite map was the Kuban one.  The landscape is just really nice with the greenery, mountains and water.

Amazing to see so many of you online last night! Also great job to those who organised it.

 

sorry to those of you I headbutted. VR and no icons/target distance is taking a bit of getting used to! If only I had one of those newfangled German silk bonnets

Sometimes forcing the title can be a bit difficult. I think you can take it two ways:

1) Go for something dramatic and a bit exciting (or alternatively a bit silly). A Gathering Storm (symbolic of Flying Circus' slowly gaining players and content). Or.. Jasta Joust sounds fun.

2) Go for something more descriptive. Flying Circus Sunday Fly-In. Or just Flying Circus Sunday Dogfight.

 

I'd go for the second kind of name if you want to communicate the goal of the event quickly.

Skin bundle?

Did I miss something?

Just a bit, here is the link to the bundle post

 

On 1/13/2019 at 2:38 PM, GCF said:

good morning all

i did a lot of thinking and work on organising an easier skin bundle system, i will upload the first, full complete and fully catagorised master skin bundle. it contains a total of 124 skins.

if everyone could please download this bundle and install it into your skin folders, so we all start with the same carbon copy. if this bundle contains your personal skin with a prefix zzz , could you please use the zzz prefix skin as i will then show up to all players. once you have installed this master skin bundle there will no longer be any need to download a big bundle again, as i will release,  every day or two just a mini bundle update file containing only the latest skins to be added, to your skin folder. in all bundle downloads, you will find jpeg of planes in bundle. i hope this helps to simplify Skin update and helps everyone to be able to see all skins used in game .

if you have any suggestions or ideas feel free to pm or post.

here is  what the The master Bundle contains please see attachments.

 

here is the link to the 7 zip compressed file https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vQjY7buF8KEX2I6x0Lwf0UN_9yDiIR0b/view?usp=sharing

 

here is the like to an uncompressed folder https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/16UNqrnsUOgGSG7fo9P3s-aNyJuYKwdJ5?usp=sharing

I think it would be better to create a new thread for the skins (separated from the event). Just write a short text for the time being and attatch the files to the OP. I was also going to ask you where are the complete files :biggrin::dance:

It's a bit messy to follow all the different topics, hijacked topics, sneaked in posts etc. concerning the FC online events.

Currently it feels viral, spreading all across the forums (and elsewhere too).

As much as I understand the need to raise other's attention, I'd suggest to tone down the advertising style a bit and rather resort to some streamlined activity, preferably in one dedicated thread.

'Cause the way it is right now, posts and topics popping up from everywhere just tend to cause users like me to add this kind of stuff to the ignore list.

hello all i appolligise for posting all over the place, just getting used to this forum, i will try and tone it down a bit and stream line it a bit, just dont know what is the right way and the wrong way on here, please help.

i have 4 FC projects on the go at once right now

1 the FC skin Bundle, (which is orphaned, trying to contact the OP where i am posting). i reall dont know what to do for best here, SP1969 came up with the idea and thread, so i ran with it, did not want to start new post as he came up with idea, but also dont want to highjack his thread, so waiting to here back form him, in a but of a quandery with this one).

2 the FC sunday Event (Has its own thread)

3 the FC sunday event renaming poll (which i am posting now as a new thread.)

4 the FC mass dogfight screen shots and recordings post ( already on site.)

 

any ideas and help would be appreciated as , one person says i am making to many different Threads, the other says, stop posting like a shotgun all over the place, so a bit confused on forum etiquet here.

 

Sorry and my appoliges if i have been posting like a mad man, and for any anoyance cause, i will cut back on my postings, and tone it down. i will only need the four threads going. sorry for using 4 but they are different subjusts. and i will post less on the forum.

thanks for advice

I already voted, but I just think it should be "Flying Circus Sunday Dogfight Event". "Sunday Blody Sunday" alone (whitout the previa) works as well. In my opinion, just keep it simple.
