Just found this server in the last 2 days and having a blast.. apart from the spawn killing last night.

 

The missions are well set up and it’s not a long slog to get into the action.  Plus the people in the server have been polite and friendly for the most part.

 

Is the Friday flights on every week?

Hi Swing

 

It can take what feels like quite a while (especially Prok map) to load, I thought about pressing escape just as it loaded 1st time I tried this server, so I suggest you click on 'join the server' and go make a cup of coffee, it is worth it 😉

Since the last update My server has developed Issues, mainly crashing every day.. If I host the Flyin tomorrow I will make sure both GCF & Darkowl have the same maps ready in case.  Once it starts crashing then it continues, so if it goes down during the event I am done for the Night.   Blue Skies  OG_FC

@OG_FC and @GCF

 

Could you add the setting in your server that you must land the plane to finish mission with a 5 second time delay? It's a bit silly otherwise, you can just jump out of a dogfight or crashing plane unscathed. I only found out about this rather late, though I was wondering why indeed everyone seemed to make it back in one piece. :D

 

Other than that, fun missions!

I parachuted a couple times yesterday and crash landed and a shot down was awarded to the opposition. Is that it?

 

I wish the stats could be more sophisticated, because sometimes you just want to land on your side and the plane breaks its prop or something and someone gets a kill because he had put a couple bullets on you at some point. 

 

To award a kill, I think it has to seize the engine or run out of gas on air. I think the silliest of them all is when you bring the plane home (in some maps it takes forever), it prop prongs for some reason and you still awards a kill. ROF is king on this regard.

That’s how I found out about it too. I rammed a Camel twice (more or less intentionally with a Pfalz), jumped and the kill was immediately awarded to the opposition — understandably since jumping means conceding defeat — however the pilot in the stricken Camel didn’t die. In fact, he never even hit the ground. It’s only then that I found out that you don’t need to land or bail to finish mission, which completely defeats the point of trying to stay alive in a dogfight.

 

I can confirm that this is not the case on the J5 server, however you can bail out of Entente planes and still survive without a parachute, provided you don’t hit the ground within 5 seconds.

I had no idea (haha!).

 

But are you saying that I can end the mission in midair by clicking on "end mission"? I imagined you had to disco.

So boils down to server settings while no way in BOX/FC to consult those on entry.
No longer need to give in to the Dark Force in order to get a parachute while beating the dangling-could-go-both-ways part? )))
So next time on a server remember the frist mission end count down time;

Since the Last Update My Server has continued to have Issues, to many crashes!!  I don't like the update, I did not buy ROF 2014, I bought Flying Circus 2018,  I will no longer support 1C or 777 with my funds. I have met a lot of Great people on Friday Nights and I wish you all the best. Both GCF & Darkowl have my Missions. I will no longer be running a server in Flying Circus.. Blue Skies.. OG_FC

That's a shame OG, you've put so much work into this.

Have you raised a ticket or anything like that yet ?

 

Maybe you could take a couple of days out and re-visit this..

 

Salute !

The server is just another one in the List of Issues I have talked with 1C about. With the update and the change of the flight models it is just not enjoyable for me to fly any more. I hope in the future updates they will fix what ever the issue is but I guess I have just given up any hope.. Blue Skies..
