AFAIK, add-on planes don't work for the current release of OFF, being designed for earlier versions (phases 1 and 2) which used a CFS3-style convention for aircraft use and naming. Since Phase 3, planes are named according to a certain convention - I believe this is [planename]QC1 = used in quick combat, AC1-5 = used for aces, SQ1-5 used for non-aces, Sqd used for the player's plane. You MAY be able to get earlier planes to be picked up in Quick Combat by giving them (and their .xdp and bdp files etc, files, inside the plane's folder) a QC1 suffix, but more work would be needed for them to show in a campaign and this may not even be possible without access to the inner workings of the OFF campaign manager and/or a working knowledge of CFS3 and OFF game files.

Welcome to OFF, blackbaron!

You could download the user-built mission "Gothas along the Thames!" by RAF_Louvert.

There you'd have to intercept the big bombers with S.E.5a from Sutton Farm, England.

So you see, at least as AI craft they DO work in OFF.

In the new Phase 4, we will be able to even fly them.

Or fly "Olham's Gotha Escort Mission", also made by RAF_Louvert - here you escort Gothas

in a German Albatros scout.

If you send me a PM with your hometown & country/state, I'd like to add you to our

"OFF Forum Pilots Maps".
