Your room has been empty 90 percent of the time for the last week. How about re-enableing cockpit off?

As much as i hate to see slammin's awsome server empty, its his to do with as he pleases, and you guys should try to remember that. Everytime i want to go whine to slammin about something, i remeber he's funded the server entirly out of his own pocket.

It's no biggie BS87, I actually welcome ALL input, good or bad - will make me a better host for our hobby.

Too bad the FR folks never come in and say why they don't join when I set to FR settings, though I'm pretty sure I know why they don't join.

I think there are two extremes in FB, and not much in the middle. If you go FR, then go all the way, including map, plane set, etc. to be as historically correct as possible, and of course difficulty settings. ANYTHING else = not FR.

It's all good. We have hosts in FB that could be, if not adctually are, full-blown historians of the era we fly in. Since I just cannot dedicate that much effort, I'll gladly leave it to the folks that can.

But, do not trip out when you see my settings change here and there. I just do that :-)

Yes, very mixed results. Was cockpit on, ext. off and server was mostly full for like 2 days, then empty again for 2 days. Back to Full Fun settings for a bit.

On Slammin's server ... can't remember when I laughed so hard on comms. Stayed around for a long time after my inevitable death and watched the action ... Shift F2 ... Ctrl F2 ... "what a hoot." That's what my brother-in-law says.

The 131st was in it nearly all night Thursday had a blast short the map rotation was too quick for Bombing but we tried like heck anyway. We actually made two full runs with sucess. One of them was cut short just as we were coming in for landing. We tried the He-111 but to frail of a bird even in formation. So we cracked out the B-17 and tried like crazy to stay in formation. And we got through a few times. Just have to do a low level run at target though to expect to hit with out a bombsight. Oh we flew thwm like Bombers the whole time. held tight stayed on course and relied on cover and our crews. None of the flying around exploiting a wacked FM.

Slamm, if you wanna try hosting near FR, try axis vs allies, no AI crap and leave only minimap, externals and limited friendly icons. Back in the day i was hosting with externals and it was full house. Also give each side more then 1 base and welcome vulching http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Servers come and go, we use to run a busy server in Hyperlobby with out allowing the none **** pit view, we have never allowed Icons and never will, we built virtual battle fields, we did allow out side views so you could enjoy the inherent beuty of the game, we always got a full house (20 players) about 6 months ago for nearly a year.

These days while waiting for the Aces release in IL-2 FB we are having fun taking off and landing on Aircraft Carriers, in Lock On Modern Air Combat, flying the SU 33 Jet fighter.
We are building Virtual Battle fields in this Ubisoft game as well, only its better the ships ground vehicles, and even Ai aircraft and Helicopters move in Multiplayer in real time.
A Multiplayer game that you can join, at any time provided its not full, stay in if the host allows crash recovery in the settings or leave at any time you like and re join later perhaps, mean while players comming and going can impact on the over all Virtual Battle field situation I have just discovered.
Not bad I must admit.

We flew the Me 262 Jet Fighter in Il-2/FB, and Lock On is another UBI Game.
In Lock on you can almost sense Oleg trying new Ideas for Online Play.
For Example everything can move Online in Multiplayer, from ground vehicles to ships to AI Aircraft, and it happens in the equivilent of an IL-2/FB DF server.
That cannot be done in Il-2/FB except in a Coop.
I noticed in Lock On you host in Coop Mode and allow crash recovery, and players can stay if they get shot down or crash and come back into the game, then they can come and go like a DF server in Il-2/FB.
That cannot be done in Il-2 FB.
Hats off to Olegs involvment in Lock On, what a great Idea.

Slammin I hit ur server when I can get in. I enjoy all modes but if I had to would fly pit on always. But I also enjoy externals on. To be able to watch the action is a simple pleasure I take sometimes.

This happens quite often in scripted dogfight servers i think. FOr example, i seem to remeber some map maker posting about how as russian artillery advanced on German occupied town, the germans respawned father back, outside the city, not in it like thye origionally had, as if they were beeing pushed back

Well I have built a lot of Missions in IL-2 and IL-2 FB, and I cannot get any AI vehicle ship or Plane /Helicopter , moving in a DF server in FB.

I can in Lock on modern Air Combat, not only that, if I spend the time ( and I will) I can create a Scenario off line then Host a game on line where I have opposing AI forces on the move engaging each other in Battle, into this Scenario enters the individual Online players, that connect to my server in the Hyper Lobby.

Teams and or individuals can then impact on the out come of the Battle.
Do not get me wrong I love IL-2 FB and have been flying Online since the day the original IL-2 was released.
Probably to the point where I have become bored, so I decided to try Lock On as a lot of other IL-2/FB guys are doing, and to be Quite honest, I just never got back to Il-2 FB because of its limited mission building capability for what I call Virtual Online Battle Fields.
At the Moment I am having fun taking off in a Russian SU 33 Jet fighter from a Russian Aircraft carrier ploughing through the water at 30 knots, and thats just the begining of the fun in this online Scenario I built in Lock Ons Mission Editor.
This is the sort of Multiplayer Scenario I can host Online in the Hyper Lobby, right now.

Left feeling totaly Amazed!
Never did I think another Air Combat Sim would draw me away from the Brilliance of IL-2/FB
Oh and I do not care about what anybody has to say about Oleg, the water Graphics the finer detail of the land scapes of the Crimea and Kuban areas, the adjustable weather at different altitudes every thing about Lock on smells of somebody greatly improoving on what they did in IL-2/FB.

Crikey!
I just found out that in Multiplayer you can Impact on Naval Battles in Lock on.
I built a Scenario where Naval forces on the move as part of supporting a land battle Invasion, and I discovered the Naval forces started to engage each other at extreme Range.

I took off from the Russian Aircraft carrier on an anti shipping strike, and my target the USS Tigodaroga launched a cruise missle at one of my carrier escorts at extreme range, anyhow I found I was able to engage the cruise Missle at low altitude mid way to my target that launched it.
While all this is going on somebody in spectator mode (because I allowed outside views) commented on two other players that joined my server having a dog fight between an A10 Wart Hog and a Su 27 Flanker.

Lock on has a Spectator mode in Multiplayer!
Awesome keep finding out new stuff every day!
