  1. Nah, I don't think I'll start another project - even though I do love modelling. The thing is that I'll be having my exam session at school soon and after that I'll be going to the military service for 11 monts or so... No time, unfortunately :/
  2. Sopwith 1-1/2 Strutter will be here soon, let's say in a fortnight. What I really miss is the terrain suitable for late 1916, early 1917 era (the end of Somme and Bloody April campaigns, the frontline was quite static then). I've been working on a rework of the existing Cambrai map (changed the front lines), but I'm not good at terrain editing...
  3. Great job indeed. But what about some earlier, 1916 skins? (say Fokker D.II/III, Halberstadt)
  4. WIP Strutter

    Indeed, it's best to keep it simple. So yes, most probably the best would be having two versions, 110 and 130hp ones that are for both British and French. Tam-di-dam
  5. WIP Strutter

    Heck: Unfortunately the unarmed version for Strutter cannot be produced in that way, because in addition to the gun removal (no problem with that) the cockpit edge/padding/whatever it's called should be altered too + a windscreen should be added. It's no problem for me to make different models, as it's an easy change, though. Let's hope it gets flying soon... Oh, and I've added two in-game screens
  6. WIP Strutter

    Also, how do I make a transparent glass? Just setting a texture with opacity doesn't seem to work.
  7. WIP Strutter

    whiteknight06604: The single-seater was bomber only, I think. And the removal of Vickers would need some more than just .ini editing, the cockpit needs a few minor changes too. Heck: I guess you're right. Perhaps, then, three versions? British two-seater fighter-recon with Vickers and rear Lewis gun French Sop. 1.A 2 (In most pictures I've seen, these didn't have synchronized gun. Only rear gun. Comments?) French Sop. 1.B 1 (single-seat bomber, most of them, I think, had only unsynchronized gun on the top wing. Am I right?)
  8. WIP Strutter

    I've been thinking about the different variants of Sopwith 1-1/2 Strutter lately... There seems to be many. But I (and I think most of the simmers) wouldn't want 8+ variants of same aircraft listed in their menus. That means, we should make a decision. At the moment, I have a completed (only 1 LOD though) model of two-seater with synchronized Vickers and Lewis with the Scarff ring. That would be the most used/popular one I guess? Let's say, it's the Sopwith 9400 series... This of course had different engines (mostly 110 and 130HP ones, is there a correlation with date, ie. early and late Strutters?) Then, a 9700 series, 1-seat bomber would be needed. Most of them had synch. Vickers, I think. And again, different engines. I don't know what was the difference between two-seater fighter and reconnaissance versions, anyone clarify this?` We cannot exclude the French ones either, as they were really numerous. They had three general versions: SOP. 1 A2 (two seater, recon?) SOP. 1 B2 (two seater bomber) SOP. 1 B1 (single-seater bomber) They all had different engines throughout the war, ranging from 80HP to 135HP. Again, any relation to the date? The French ones were a bit (but not too much) different from British ones, eg. not all of them had synchronized MG etc. Also, the earlier variants of Strutter didn't have Scarff ring (Nieuport rings mostly then?). I care more for early/late differences, as I love 1916 scenarios mostly (and fully armed and fast, late 1917 Strutter would be too tough). But let's discuss! Oh, and let's exclude the Comic at the moment. Perhaps later. :)
  9. Wow, looking great! I'll try to get my Strutter ready soon... Just have to find some more time.
  10. FE Sounds V.2

    For me at least they are audible in-game too.
  11. Hmm... I still get these 'clicks' with some sounds... I tested with two soundcards (SB Audigy and ESI Maya44) and with my regular speakers (some Creative 2.1 set) and headphones (AKG K141 Studio). It's quite strange situation. I do like the sounds though.
  12. I like those sounds alot, but some of them have annoying crackling sound (lerhone, lewis, spandau and vickers). Or am I the only one?
  13. Try to lower graphic settings. Those "unlimited" settings might give such a problem, I've noticed.
  14. Let's talk about tactics

    Wow, thank you all for helpful recommendations, I shall try to put them into practice. Yet, it seems all those hints and tips can probably be summed up in a single word: discipline. It takes a lot of discipline to maintain one's height/speed advantage and not to fall into turning fight; only after that are the masterful tactics of any use. Thanks again!
  15. Hi all, I love WW1 flight sims, I've flown them since Red Baron (the original game). But my tactics haven't evolved since, I guess. I exclusevly use the good old turn fighting tactics. But I know that I should develop some new manouvres, especially with planes like SPAD or Pfalz, they are both very good aeroplanes, but they are not for usual turn fighting as it seems. Someone please tell me, how should I learn the "energy fighting" method? I've seen some instructions for IL-2 game, but couldn't use them very well on WW1 planes. And the second thing, I think it's linked with my turning tactics problem, is that I fail to shoot down 2-seaters. Getting on their 6 is easy, but usually I get shot down if I don't stay low (and I can't shoot from there very well). So, tell how do YOU fly those fast and perhaps not so manouverable planes and shoot down those 2-seated devils. :)
