For those interested in WWI
There is a new WWI server
Heres how it works
I have taken the campaign concept created by JTMF and applied it to a FBD dedicated dog fight server on hyper lobby

Inspired by the skin work and campaign concept of

"Bloody April"

The Guts and Glory Server presents

The Air Battle of St. Mihiel
(Mission author -=FA=-RaVen)

In the words of JTFM:
" classified as a faux World War 1 Mission because. Obviously Forgotten Battles is a World War II simulation that does not contain World War 1 airplanes.
The means of overcoming this, and the heart of the Mission is the prodigious use of WW1 skins. When applied to several airplanes already contained within Forgotten Battles,
and with the player suspending a certain amount of reality, these skins enable World War 1 to come to life within the confines of a World War II simulation,
thus providing the player an exciting return to the seminal years of aerial warfare.

Planes used and represented

WW1 airplane skins transform the [J8A,] [CR-42 ] [I-153] [P11c,] and [TB-3] into the Albatross D.II/III, Sopwith Pup, SPAD VII, SE5, Martinsyde G.100, Nieuport XVII, Morane Saulnier, BE2c/d/e/f/g, RE8, Sopwith One-and-a-half-Strutter, Albatross C.III, Gotha G.IV, and HP 0/100. All skins were meticulously researched to represent these airplanes as they appeared in April, 1917. Skins include planes from Jastas 2/5/11/30 and KGIII; RFC Nos. 1/3/3N/9/13/16/19/27/34/43/52/
56/59/60/66 Squadrons; Aviation Militaire N3 and SPA124 Lafayette Escadrille. Skinned ace airplanes include Manfred von Richthofen, Lothar von Richthofen, Kurt Wolff, Karl Emil Schäfer, Karl Allmenröder, Werner Voss, Hermann Frommherz, Joachim von Bertrab, Adolf von Tutshek, Hans Berr, Heinrich Gontermann, Albert Ball, Billy Bishop, John Andrews, Lloyd Breadner, Edmund Pierce, Raoul Lufbery, René Dorme, Paul Tarascon, Georges Guynemer, and many others.
All so a complete set of Flyboys JA skins by TripleA007.
(very nice work as well)
plane sets are evenly matched Dependant on map, its more pilot skill against pilot skill . IE there would not be a I-153 on a map were there are Cr_42 and Ja's . ect Plane sets are balanced no uber out of balance stuff going on here skill on skill it the concept here.

The difficulty settings only mini and speed bar are available
no icons ,no external.
This is dog fighters heaven you need to Id, then hunt the enemy this this is were the skins shine. The feed back has been just great, its very immerse.

New maps also in rotation are The Eastern fronts, one and two.
and The Ammunition depot raid



WHAT THIS MEANS IS:
YOU NEED TO GO GET THE SKINS TO PLAY ON THIS SERVER.
There is a net cache file that if used will totally eliminating any skin load lag on the server. Please see details on web site.
WWI Skins DOWNLOAD HERE (http://www.ravenskins.com/RaVenskinsWW1.html)

As most of the aircraft are the same on both sides the only way to differentiate is to Id the markings and skins. This adds a terrific amount of immersion the the mission.

Tried it tonight. It was just great http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Reminded me of Baldie's server when both sides had the same plane, and only the pilot would make the difference. And the skins look so good in flight. Great having to look carefully for the right markins on the first pass before shooting.

You can't go wrong with the older planes in IL2 anyway. The dogfights are just as exciting as it gets in this game.

Two suggestions:
- The map was a tad big, specially for older planes like the P.11 (very slow). Perhaps picking bases closer to the frontline would be enough.
- Red's didn't have the P11, and blues the Falco. Could both sides have the same planes?

Oh, and before I forget. The frontline was very nicely done. I loved the baloons, the ground units and all that smoke. Top job!

RaVe_N
03-04-2007, 04:03 PM
Thanks for the input Capt_Haddock
was great to see you in there

There are P11's on both sides just not both bases on each side.
blue p11 represents the Floker
E III and
the p11 on red is to represent the
Morane.

The bases are almost equidistant to the front and once the map routs are understood, it takes 2-3 minuets tops to get to the fight.
Recon wile at the same time you may run into an enemy bomber formation along the way. Re con maps will help and are available on the forum.
when the server populates the bases are almost to close but with 3 or four best to head for the front line http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

more maps on the way though . its a work in progress

Speaking of WW1 my wife brought home the movie 'Flyboys' today. We just got done watching it, and it was a whole lotta fun. I'm sure it has gotten a stinking load of criticism as usual, but I enjoyed the heck out of it. Good movie.

@ flat spin.
I will try to keep it going 24/7
I'm counting on the mature pilots to be sure and keep guys in check with skins and markings.
As without the rules followed ,the immersion gets tainted.

@ Buzz its the same AC on both sides.
they are very evenly matched this is more pilot on pilot fun.

03-04-2007, 07:26 PM
@ Avont there are no WWI aircraft in il2 so we need to Hack them ie use the ones in game and paint them like wwI. Take another read above and it will be clear to you.

@ buzz
the set is well balanced they are a good match. also both are fun to fly. there is a good mix guys fly Ja and Cr it dosn't get lopsided.
Try it youll see. its a blast if you like to dog fight

Just one question about the skins.I've extracted both files to :
C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\PaintSchemes
The file NetCache is in there as a seperate file, but the skins file has 'bounced' back to my desktop. If I add the new skins file to paintschemes, there will be two skins files in that folder?? should I copy and paste the contents of the new skins file into the original skins file ?

No, just unzip it to the paintsckeme folder. The skin and netcache folders is both in that folder. It will only overwrite files with same name (eg. you already meet someone flying with that skin)

The full switch is interesting, external views would be nice.
If that aint happening, how about installing some static cameras at the airbases and target areas?
Also, move the arty far enough back so they dont shoot at each other non-stop.
Nice to prevent as much lag as possible with the skin download packs, keep it up by preventing wasted memory rendering the artillery.
Had a good time today, flew for an hour or so this AM and this afternoon.

@ Hawg good point about the artillery, its 7.9m small arms fire only one on each side. there effects are not an issue. I did removed them when I was testing the maps... no change in FPS ect.
So I put the two of them back in for effect. Its kind of cool and we get lots of pos ++ feedback about the rat tat tat sound. also helps the new guys find the front line. There is no worry of lag with the skin packs.That's due to the net cache pack. Its a non issue also.

To the static cameras point, I would like them also, it would be great .
But unfortunately they really really drain things.
So I cant use them on that map.
On some of the less demanding maps I can get away with it. As you know some maps are inherently more demanding on memory and FPS with out any objects at all placed on them than others.
So far feedback really has been great on lag issues and over all smoothness of the server on that map.
I'm on the next map. it should tolerate the static camera. Testing will tell.
Hope to see ya in there again soon. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Is that the only map you have?
Want more? I've got a ton of **** plane maps already to go- same plane sets as a matter of fact. All flyables mapped in various areas to reduce spawn lag further. Easy bomb targets etc
You could mod for the TB3 airstart (great idea btw)
Most of mine are the plain "online" maps optimized for dogfighting instead of scenery.
Last night was a dueling TB3 evening

what a bummer, rare to see anyone in there.
Have you thought about setting the allowed number of players to 8? This way, with on or two players in the server, it will show up higher on the list.
HP sorts servers by how many are actually IN the server comparing that to how MANY are allowed.
2 in 8 will be very close to the top. 4 in 20 wont, eh?

Raven, question on the I-153 skins. For me they went into the I-153P folder (which has 20mm cannons), and there are no skins for the I-153 M-62 (which has four MGs). Was this intentional?

Great idea, looking forward to trying it out online.

Even if everyone flew the same plane so what..... as long as they download the proper skins and fly on the correct side for the skin they are wearing it shouldn't be a problem, after all.. like Rave said.. there arent any WWI planes in this series... so it is all a matter of compromise just like it was in IL2 before we had Mustangs, Spits,Corsairs etc........ besides... that would only mean that it would boil down to the better pilot... which is how it should be any way.

We RedTails ventured in the other night and had a pretty good time. It's REAL HARD to fly with just minimap. Even with TrackIR4 I could never see who was on my 6. With 6DoF it might have been easier, but as it is in this sim I was just skrag bait. Never could get anyone or anything infront of me save the occaisional barrage balloon. May try it again sometime.

For those interested in WWI
There is a new WWI server
Heres how it works
I have taken the campaign concept created by JTMF and applied it to a FBD dedicated dog fight server on hyper lobby

Inspired by the skin work and campaign concept of

"Bloody April"
by "JTFM"
J.F. Miller

with his blessing

The Guts and Glory Server presents

The Air Battle of St. Mihiel
(Mission author -=FA=-RaVen)

In the words of JTFM:
" classified as a faux World War 1 Mission because. Obviously Forgotten Battles is a World War II simulation that does not contain World War 1 airplanes.
The means of overcoming this, and the heart of the Mission is the prodigious use of WW1 skins. When applied to several airplanes already contained within Forgotten Battles,
and with the player suspending a certain amount of reality, these skins enable World War 1 to come to life within the confines of a World War II simulation,
thus providing the player an exciting return to the seminal years of aerial warfare.

Planes used and represented

WW1 airplane skins transform the [J8A,] [CR-42 ] [I-153] [P11c,] and [TB-3] into the Albatross D.II/III, Sopwith Pup, SPAD VII, SE5, Martinsyde G.100, Nieuport XVII, Morane Saulnier, BE2c/d/e/f/g, RE8, Sopwith One-and-a-half-Strutter, Albatross C.III, Gotha G.IV, and HP 0/100. All skins were meticulously researched to represent these airplanes as they appeared in April, 1917. Skins include planes from Jastas 2/5/11/30 and KGIII; RFC Nos. 1/3/3N/9/13/16/19/27/34/43/52/
56/59/60/66 Squadrons; Aviation Militaire N3 and SPA124 Lafayette Escadrille. Skinned ace airplanes include Manfred von Richthofen, Lothar von Richthofen, Kurt Wolff, Karl Emil Schäfer, Karl Allmenröder, Werner Voss, Hermann Frommherz, Joachim von Bertrab, Adolf von Tutshek, Hans Berr, Heinrich Gontermann, Albert Ball, Billy Bishop, John Andrews, Lloyd Breadner, Edmund Pierce, Raoul Lufbery, René Dorme, Paul Tarascon, Georges Guynemer, and many others.
All so a complete set of Flyboys JA skins by TripleA007.
(very nice work as well)
plane sets are evenly matched Dependant on map, its more pilot skill against pilot skill . IE there would not be a I-153 on a map were there are Cr_42 and Ja's . ect Plane sets are balanced no uber out of balance stuff going on here skill on skill it the concept here.

The difficulty settings only mini and speed bar are available
no icons ,no external.
This is dog fighters heaven you need to Id, then hunt the enemy this this is were the skins shine. The feed back has been just great, its very immerse.

New maps also in rotation are The Eastern fronts, one and two.
and The Ammunition depot raid



WHAT THIS MEANS IS:
YOU NEED TO GO GET THE SKINS TO PLAY ON THIS SERVER.
There is a net cache file that if used will totally eliminating any skin load lag on the server. Please see details on web site.
WWI Skins DOWNLOAD HERE (http://www.ravenskins.com/RaVenskinsWW1.html)

As most of the aircraft are the same on both sides the only way to differentiate is to Id the markings and skins. This adds a terrific amount of immersion the the mission.

Skins also donated by

JTMF
TripleA007's fantastic FLY BOYS SKINS
VPmedia
IMME
FBS
RaVeN

In server screens
many more skins

By request we have tried externals on the server but unfortunately it Completely kills the inversive nature as well as the spirit of the great dog fights.
Skills needed to prevail such as well implemented air combat maneuvers (ACM)
Are no longer effective so we will be leaving the settings on Full switch other that mini map and speed bar.

I f you haven't taken the leap I would highly recommend a track IR ,as it will elevate your flight Sim experience to a new level.

I got TIR this past spring and its great, but before that I used a tool called FB View Plus for years with great success. I pretty much only fly FR settings and with FB View I never felt I was at a disadvantage whatsoever. What it does is allows you to pan smoothly as if you was using you mouse. It allows you to look where you want when you want and has speed adjustments as well as a center view key.

O.K., O.K....I miss those Continuation War TB3 duels so much. Now I gotta get in there. I DL'd the skin packs months ago and just haven't been by.

I'll be in tonight.

I just looked in ASE and didn't see it. Is is up 24/7? or is there a time window?

Also, is it o.k. to join via direct IP? If so, what is it?

This is a great server for many pilots to get a break of the regular planes, At first it's frustrating due to planes limitations but... when you accept that it is a ww1 scenario all make sens and this is where this server shine,.. well when i say a "break" it doesn't mean cruising around... it is actually the opposite it's very demanding on your flying knowledge, nerves and tactics... You will have to go to a ww2 server to get some energy back to your brain.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

To me #1 WW1 server by far.

That was an extremely fun Labor Day holiday of doing nothing around the house and just flying. I started at about 9 or 10AM and finished at 6PM. Whew...haven't done that in a long time.

Great fun Raven and great flying with all you guys.

I've been trying to get in there for days so I can fly that big beast above, but on All Seeing Eye it says the server is inop (or words to that effect) and via Hyperlobby all the little bars are red and I cannot enter the server, no matter how often I attempt. Never see anyone else in there, either.

Please advise what I am doing wrong! Thanks.

Rave N, could I ask you to ask JTFM to make a mental note, that when he does release the offline campaign, that he release a version without skins as well, as many of us have already d/l'd the skins?
I'm keen to join in the online fun, but my ping is just that bit too high at the moment, and am lucky to get into the odd coop, until such time as I find a provider with a slightly faster connection.
Soon, I hope!

The thing that you dont expect is that the fights are much more heart pounding than mono wing AC.

Oh yeah, definitely. Been playing with biplanes alot since I got started on Sea Dogs... Boy are they a blast! Only gripe is that the top wing kills your view. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Feeling much better now (Well, relatively speaking... I can't remember what it feels like to go to sleep without feeling like I'm suffocating), so I think I may hop on either tonight or sometime tomorrow.

Whoo, just got off after an hour or two (Lost count about the time I was trying to dodge some TB-3's gunner) of faux-WWI biplane goodness.

First time online in, well, longer than I'd like to admit!, but I managed to rack up quite a few points, with only a couple dented props on landing! (When I lasted that long, that is)
Had some jolly good fun with some of the BlitzPig crew and RaVeN, dogfighting and bombing and trying not to kill myself all at once.
And besides, this is all very helpful research for Sea Dogs. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
