I flew there yesterday on a map featuring Tomahawks and Hurricanes vs. 109F's and Mc202's and I have to say that it was a very good map and quite a lot of fun....

A nice alternative to Spit vs 109 and I really never took to Warclouds so it is good to see a very diverse map rotation. That is one of the things that draws me to UK Dedicated...diverse mapset but now for US players, there is great ping and I have very little warping or lag last night.

Hope more folks visit and the server stays strong. Also, a good number of people on TS which really helps the fun.

I've flown on the server once. Yes, I like it. Unfortunately it seemed to get a bit choppy for me when there was a lot players on. Also, my ping went a little crazy for a while. Usually it's pretty low. Anyway, yes, great server. I'll have to try again.

Glad you guys are enjoying the server. For those who have not yet tried it, we specialize in historically plausible scenarios, with realistic plane-sets. Ground attack is a key element of every scenario so, if you enjoy ground pounding you will find plenty of that here.

We are always open to suggestions, so please feel free to let us know what you would like to see on the server. If you have any problems with choppy performance, please let me know which map you detected this on, as we work hard to keep the server and the maps smooth. This server has 100mb of bandwidth, so we seldom see this problem.http://www.fallenangels.dyndns.org/images/articles/20060318200701137_1.jpg

Can you guys please explain the claim made at the top of this thread that your server has 100 MB of bandwidth; 100 MB upload and 100 MB download?

The fastest I have ever seen is 1 to 1.5 MB of upload and 10 MB of download. I suppose anyone can claim anything, but can you provide any documentation or other evidence of such great bandwidth? It seems that you could increase your player limit to 100 with all that bandwidth.

BTW, I have flown on your server several times and it is very cool. No complaints. S~

Thanks, Ikkyo!

I know I am really foolish, but can anyone explain what Mbps refers to? Is it mega BITS per second or mega BYTES per second? Doesn't MB refer to mega BYTES, not bits?

Also, uplink port speed is not exactly the same as upload speed, is it? And 2000 GB Bandwidth does not quite equate to 100 MB upload and 100 MB download, does it?

And no lag? Is it possible to promise this on any server? Of course, if someone claims to have seen some lag, would Ikkyo believe it? I think such a claim would be foolish.

Last time i checked, we are in year of 2006, where data centers are capable of 100mbps up and down with ease. Hell i am getting 30 down, 2 up in 2 weeks (10x1 now).... and that`s residential hehe.

Selective reading must be fun, guys!

I was merely asking about your bandwidth claims. Why be so insulted by this? I was amazed by the numbers you posted and I wanted to know if it was possible. It's no big deal. Your server is obviously a good one. The reaction I have gotten from all three of you is hilarious and extremely childish.

AKA_Hitcher, your question could have been answered by use of their TS server, a PM here, or even an e-mail. One thing's for sure, we would have saved some forum space.

I just wanted to say again, this is an awesome server. I have not seen lag in any quantity. The reason this server rocks isn't because of the maps, or the support, though they contribute. This server is awesome because the people who fly on it are cool, respectable people who do their best to help everyone have a good time while flying.

WOW easy guys.

For one of the few times, I'll side with Hitcher on this one. I for one didn't read too much into his posts, from my take he was genuinely curious about the specs. Responding to him sure could have been handled more softly

Hitcher, the numbers you are reading are that big http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif , a huge pipeline, up and down. Dont be confused by the gigabyte spec given , thats bandwidth alloted per month (or data transfer in and out)

This is nearly the same server STS has, (from which we were hosting those FS missions) now you know why they ran so smooth hehe.

As far as the 'lag' in the game, well thats very depended on how the dedicated server is setup also. I won't go into it at all here though.

Great to see a new server (Winds of War) off to such a big start, good job fellas.

One little critique...

I really doubt that the VVS put up 20+ Spits on the Kuban, ever.

Adlerangriff
03-30-2006, 06:35 PM
Somewhere around 143 Spit VB's were delivered through Iran and into the southern front of the VVS in May'43. The Soviets assembled, trained and put the lend lease equip out a few months later. If they did have 20 up at once in the Kuban, they were '41 planes with high usage.

As far as historical go, if we have '43 spits in the Kuban in 1943, we might be giving the VVS a little too much pop. Yak7B's, LaGG's, P-39's down south. P-40's nad Hurricanes up at Murmansk and the Finnish front.

My research agrees with yours. The plane set on the Kuban43 map, currently running on the Winds Of War SuperServer is the Spit MkVb. Will see if I can limit the number of pilots who can select it.

Maybe increased distance to the hot spots on the map will basically do the same thing. The better the fighter, the further from the action you start?

This is a GREAT server -- just tried it last nite for the first time. I've been on most of the "Full Immersion" servers, and this one is the best.

I do have one observation I'd like to share:

I don't know if this still applies in 4.0x, but I remember reading a looong time ago, that one way to keep maps smooth is to remove static cameras, or at least reduce the number of them as much as possible. I made a track last nite when I was on the New Guinea map, and when watching it I noticed there were many static cameras, mostly at the airfields, and some airfields had 3 cameras in the same location.

Anyway I don't know if this really makes any difference. It was very smooth for me, even with a big furball with over 20 A/C. This server is HEAVEN! Decent bunch of pilots on, too.

Hi Baron, glad you are enjoying the server.

I also really appreciate the input on the static cameras, and will make sure I go back and remove them. I put static cameras on the maps so that I can look at the objects, as I place them, to ensure they are in the correct position, look realistic, etc. After the map is completed they are no longer needed, so I will go back and delete them.

Thanks my friend.

I had actually changed the top post, which was mine, from the info that I had received. This is what the host has told us and know what?.... seems to be better bandwidth than any other server out there. Really shouldn't matter what it is or should be a big deal the "actual" spec. It just has better bandwidth it seems and that's what I was relaying across to the community. In saying that however, there seems to be some concern from people what bandwidth the server is using and I will try my best to get you the very detailed information to ease your heads.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

I'm sure no icon servers are great if you are on comms. But since I cannot use comms (dialup sometimes as low as 24.0), I end up being too unsure of who to shoot at. About all I can do on these servers is loiter around the airfield, and wait for AA to tell me which tiny dot is a bad guy. Shooting down friendlies ruins my day.

No offense to you guys, I just wish GreaterGreen would fill up once in a while.

One thing that bugged me, on the Normandy Map, was all the static aircraft so closely lined up along the sides of the runway. You take a minor hit such as the rudder out, there's no way your going to take the risk at what would normally be an uneventful landing. There is no where else to go, and the risk of a friendly kill is too high.

Fuel drums or something that won't trash your efforts would probably make a better barrier. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Hi there. Good question. In buliding a Dogfight server I believe it isn't possible to choose each side's markings which only that marking will be in the list.

In CooP's you can make each side have certain markings.

Great DON! here is some ( hopefully ) useful info I have from a book on Kursk that you may find useful.

Excerpt:

To support the mighty armoured force, the Luftwaffe had assembled 1,800 aircraft, representing some two-thirds of all aircraft available in the east. In particular importance on the southern portion of the bulge was the crowded airfields around Orel, Belgorod and Kharkov. At these fields were grouped He-111s, Ju-88s and for the last time EN MASSE, the Ju-87G Stuka. These planes were from groups KGs 3, 27 and 55. Fighter units were drawn from JGs 3, 51, 52 and 54, flying Fw-190A-5s and Messerschmitt Bf-109G6s.
On the Soviet side of the line, many new fighters made their combat debutes during the Battle of Kursk. Fighters such as the Yak-9D and La-5FN, as did the improved Ilyushin Il-2m3 mounting a 37mm anti-tank cannon.

i very much enjoy the server! what i like best is that it isnt the "latest plane set" every single map. nor is it an arcade style everything uber shooter. its a nice blend of aircraft you have to deal with, because most likely your "other server" fav AC is not there. sticking you in the squarely in the seat of comfortable aircraft...that your not familiar with. so you have to learn them to be effective on every map, but without the steep learning curve of taking on a totally new AC.

I'm not so sure about this. You can edit your conf.ini, and your video driver settings to achieve remarkable results.
One way to make plane visible is setting
land detail to lowest and playing on 640x480 resolution.
Of course this kills all the immersion but I'm sure some guys online use some kind of tweaks to achieve better visibility...
For me it's the bigest issue in this sim.

The well respected Gennadich server uses icons at 1.5km, that's just the distance where plane turns into a LOD from a dot. For me this is much more correct. I think it's much more unreallistic to loose sight of a plane you are following and shooting at, just because of game limitation. Close range limited icons are so far the only way to cure this problem.
Another approach would be to set all planes skins to white or void ones, but I think this would kill the immersion much more...

Are you perhaps running 1600 X 1200 X 32? If you are that is surely your problem.

I don't recommend anything past 1152 X 864. I run a very fast rig viewed on a Dell 2405 FP and that's the resolution that provides the best balance for me for crisp cockpit guages and gunsight, and eye candy.

I can spot dots over any type terrain this way.

I can run 1600 X 1200 keeping high frame rates, but lose long range dot detection. This may be true to an extent at 1280 X 960. When I set up my new rig a few weeks ago, the first thing I did was set the resolution up high and went on line. I'm flying around for about 15 mins mesmerized by the graphics detail (but scanning the skies religously) when all of a sudden "bam, bam, bam" - screen goes black - TUSA/TX-Gunslinger has been killed message shows up. I went back and looked at the track and found the bogey in front of me and even in my gunsight for minutes, before he saw me, reversed and sent me to kindom come. Changed the resolution to 1152 X 864 and that fixed invisible plane issue.

Also be careful maximizing AA as you can smooth the dots so much you lose a bit of range in the process.

Maybe resolution is not your problem, but if you are missing dots/planes at that range you absolutely have graphics issues of some sort.

Maybe ground detail is turned up too high - Trees = ?

Like the other fellow said - it would be good to see that screen shot zoomed and in wide view.

Hello all.

I fly on Winds of War, Spits v 109s, Zekes v Wildcats, and only recently on War Clouds. All are great environments. Personally, I love the excitement of bearing down upon someone and having to identify the form and markings of the plane. My heart races. I worry about waiting too long and getting spotted, about friendly fire and yes - even about ramming the guy. When the icons are on, I loose this excitement.
