Thanks, however I get the feelng that "dogfight" is all that people want to do, and they won't venture online unless others are also dogfighting. It devolves everything down to the most basic level, unfortunately.

Me and my Squadron we seek a WWII experience, the most real possible. So if we take off an found some enemy we fight, if we must go for a ground target we go for it and if, like in reality some times happen, we didn't find nobody we flying back and see You next time... This is what I call a "WWII experience"

Yes, I very much have that feeling too and I think it represents the desire that guys, who have a limited time available to participate, to get 'down to brass tacks' straight away rather than involving themselves in the full spectrum of a mission's activities. Certainly, I prefer the latter but the pursuit of the former manages to quench the thirst of those more time limited individuals.
So the solution must somehow involve making it more dynamic and stimulating to occupy oneself in the complete flight from startup to shutdown, as you do in your videos. I can see the ethos behind Storm of War clearly myself but how you portray that vision is the critical factor.
I think the essential quality of mulitplayer is teamwork and squadron effort but unless exposed to these elements then many new virtual pilots simply assume that it's dogfighting prowess that is the pertinent factor.
Perhaps a sign of our times Phil. Your work is a beacon of optimism for myself and I am sure there are many others who feel likewise.

Hey philstyle, I have tried the server in the last couple of days; I really like it. You may have found another regular
PS. The AAA is ruthless! I was 'sniped' and shot dead while casually passing well above Isigny. On a different server I can strife more or less safely, here I need to pay a lot more attention. Frustrating, but I like the challenge

AI Wingman (with P51) did not want to follow me on the runway. I took off and waited while wingman drove to the opposite side of ayrfield. Is it possible to add a German scout at a high altitude, closer to the coast of England?

All,

I plan to update the server as quickly as possible on Wednesday night so that we can run missions with the new FW190 A-8 model. I expect to have something up around 19:30 UK time, assuming the patch is released around the normal time of late afternoon.

The server will go down tonight (tuesday night, June 4th) in preparation.

Please note that we also have a new SRS address, which should be more stable than the one we have been suign for the past few weeks. The new SRS hosting is kindly provided by Redline.
alpha.digitalcombatsimulator.world:5002

The new SRS address is also stated in the Server name, which you can read from the multiplayer serverlist.


As usual, server updates are also posted on the SoW forums here: http://stormofwar.org/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=29

Server update delayed, obviously.

I will keep an eye on the patch situation witha hope to install if it gets released today at all.
If it is delayed until the weekend, I might have to delay updating the server for a week or so, due to imminent private-life committments.

F8? Not seeing it in my mission editor, or did you mean the A8?
