We'll be launching an official version of our Wednesday night ruckus with JG-1 starting March 13th. This coming Wednesday will be a "dress rehearsal" to make sure everything works.

It will be on our server and we will need to host, starting a passworded server at 2050EST and run it for 2hrs and 10 minutes (-ish).

Details to follow, but this will run for 5 weeks. So, for awhile, we will have 2 official tournaments running a week, This and Bloody April. This one will be like we've been playing, and Bloody April will be hard-core. We'll have a good idea in a couple months which way we want to go with the Battle of the Lys River.

Suggested campaign ribbon for this match. Maybe a victory "V" in the middle when we win. Big Grin

Hey fellas S!
I am a little behind on the rebuild because I think I was giving myself to much credit... I am just to slow (overthinker). I still however feel I may be on for Monday night and certainly for Wednesday so count me in at this point.

Salute

Do we have any idea what plane sets we will be using? I was going to suggest we train tonight using the planes from what ever set we will be using.

Butzzell said it will be the same as we've been flying the past few Wednesdays...but on a different part of the front to freshen it up a bit. I think that makes it Spad VII 180 and Pup with DH4 vs D.II/D.III and DFW.

I think this will be Spads (early) and Pups, similar to what we have already done in the past.

But yes train.....train.....train....

S!

So how did it go last night? Did the setup work other than not being able to re-plane? Did the arty spotting work? Inquiring minds want to know!

Technically, everything worked. Butzzell had a couple questions but they were answered and we were able to determine results.

We need to get stats up and running on the sever and we'll be ready to go.

Both recon and arty spotting went well! Cando the arty spot in a single run if we use 2 planes for it.

Since I had to leave early...

What was the results of the discuss about re-planeing?

Set number of planes and take enoung fuel for the entire mision?

Make sure all setting are the way you like them before getting into your plane as getting out to make a change kills off that plane?

Butzzell is upping the plane numbers at the fighter bases to 12 each. However, for the remainder of this tournament, we will be "Dead is Dead" — so if you die, you are out. If you return to base alive you may replane. Butzzell also found some coding issues that he fixed that should make the replaning issues we had go away.

So when we return from a bombing or recon mission and rearm we lose a bomber? There won't be enough to complete all the missions if that is true.

Yes, a flown aircraft is done for the day.

And we had/have plenty of planes to conduct all missions. The bomber bases have more planes anyway.
