      Forum Upgrade Phase II Beginning.   06/01/2020

      The initial phase of the forum updating has been completed.  We will now be moving onto Phase II: Software update:   The current forum software is in need up an update to current version.  We have been testing the newer version, and are ready to update our live forums.    Themes: The Current WWIIOL Theme will be retired as part of the forum update.  It is non-compatible with the newer forum software.  A new WWIIOL Theme will be added after upgrade (as part of the upgade if everything goes smooth).   Once the update is completed the forums should look the same, but perform significantly better.   We will also be able to potentially expand functionality to include features and add-ons that are not available with our current version of the forum software.   There will be a few hours of downtime during the upgrade process, an exact date has not been set as we are working to align schedules.

excellent team work! having the bombers hitting target right as the paras were leaving the plane was pretty cool to see! would be great to see some more videos or screenshots

I feel like I'm seeing a rise on the total amount of missions that are paratrooper based. This is really great to see and I hope it continues to go up. The thing is, people continue to want to play as paratroopers however, the total amount of pilot submissions available don't always allow for those players to get into those type missions. So anyone who knows how to create a mission and fly a paratrooper airplane definitely consider the people who are on the side line just waiting for your mission. These are one of the great things that World War II online has that many other games do not have.

That.. but it also has to do with the get into the battle time thing... most people dont want to wait for 5 to 10 mins (to gather all the paras), then fly off to target (if its 4 towns away for example) another 10 mins... then drop.. assuming we dont get blown out of the sky... and do drop... and land.. (not in front of an ai tower) and run to a depot... and *poof* .. getting killed...   

So thats 20 mins of "doing nothing" and then getting killed. 

I notice that whenever i set up a paramission wich is just 1 or 2 towns away.. i get a lot more paras and quicker on my plane then when heading off to a more distant town....

Did everyone drop south of town on purpose?

No... sorry.. i was dropping in too quick (and amazed by all the bombs dropping next to and in front of my plane)  and called out the go a tidy late... :P

Paratroop drops, Armour columns, grouping of infantry etc. is one thing I would like to see build into the game. If that means a new UI, or Command center with missions and incentives to carry out those missions by HC ( or by vets with experience) with rewards from points, Medals, Ribbons exp points etc. should be something on the white board. right now that all happens at random.

P.S. Thank You rats for the new Balancing measures like AO's based on the underpopulated side, this has been broken for too long.

One of the best things of BGE!

 

What would be great it In-air spawning, but some distance from target.  But that can have some big technical hurdles.
