when you say "historical" do you mean by dates only, or also by theater? can i fly the hayate on your 1944-45 map, or will you have a western front map only?

The missions are historical by dates, theater, planes and locations. And yes, you will be able to fly every plane on all available fronts although planesets for each individual map is limited to suit the historical setup.

First off, I would have historical match-ups.
No German versus German for example.

With that said (I don‚'t think that was what you were talking about), I would set it up to roll from ‚'39 up to ‚'45 then back down from ‚'45 to ‚'39 the back up from ‚'39 to ‚'45 and so on. That way the extreme years have longer runs together so that the players who prefer extreme early or extreme late wont be thrust into the opposite extreme instantly.

You are right, there is no German vs German or the likes. All the maps use historical setup.

If your player base is mixed (meaning in their preference for theatre or planeset by year) I'd suggest a more random rotation so that no-one has to wait too long to get a plane set or theatre they like. A lot of pilots have limited time and can't wait around for 3 or 4 map rotations to get a plane set they like.

But with it random they wouldn‚'t know when their plane set map number would be drawn.
With it set they could estimate when the rotation would be around to them and plan accordingly.
With it random they‚'d have no way to tell, they could only hope.

Let me clarify "random". Random for our map rotation means roughly:

mission1_1939
mission2_1942
mission3_1945
mission4_1940
mission5_1943
mission6_1941

But in a scense you are right Gemini, players don't know how many mission there is left until their favorite period comes along. On the other hand it is seldom more that 3-4 missions away.

I definitley have to agree with Tully on that one. Although I would prefer the maps in chronological order I don't like empty servers either, so to keep everyone happy a mix should do it. 5 maps for one year is far too long a wait for most people.

I really can't wait for the dedicated server to go back up, the old F16 was by far the best server in Europe and I'm sure it will be again. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Virtual Pilots is good too so why are all the good servers Nordic? What would we do without the Swedes and Finns?

Historical Matc up for sure. Then if you have a mixed bag I prefere limited icon of aircraft type only at 2000, mo distance or anything else. Stricly so you can decide to avoid an uneven match or take on the big guy.

My oppinion to waiting for your favorite plane set is a waist of time. A good pilot should enjoy all the planes available, and deal with what has been handed to you. In real life you got assigned to a squadron and you flew what they had. Deal with it, and enjoy. I take pride in being able to fly them all.
I'm a jack of all master of none.

But on the other hand there is no reason at all not to have a favorite and excel at it, for sure.

Historical matchups are essential. To many servers allows Japanese planes to be flown by Russians versus Germans in Yaks.

Choosing side means choosing planeset. Much more fun this way. So thanks for doing it this way.

Im sure it will be good, whatever the outcome.
But I hope there will be a 1939 to 1945 for a more total experience and a thread running trough the missions... so that there wont be to much leaps in technology.
Flying I16 in one mission, and P51D in the next...
well well.. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
