Besides squad wars I don't need anything else but a bug free game.
To sort out all bugs and to get apple, android, and windows to work together or separate windows from the rest like the noobs have been should be on the top of the hunnydo list.

When thats done I like the planes to have model specific performance and rudder.

Ice on the lakes in the winter. Ice that you can bomb to sink the tanks running on it.

Ability to display your nation flag or your countrys airforce tag on the planes.

The gun of the sodier should have the same firepower in the chute as when it's on the ground.

Maybe a destroy/defend the train. Some tunnels for the train (also to circus fly in)

But all I want for Christmas is a BUG FREE game.

We had 10 player games for a while, a short while, and then it went away. I definitely remember it though.

Before that starts again, the team allotment for even teams really needs sorted out. I don't mind the occasional 7:1/6:2 game, but 9:1?

On the subject of even teams... Please just make the numbers even and ranks random. My most enjoyable games are when I fly with squadmates. If it were limited to one high rank per side, I'd never fly with my closest DF buddies, but against them. As the number of 29-31 ranked pilots increases the ranks for each side should even themselves out enough.

Zup, why don't you chime in here and let us know, from what you've seen thus far what's possible and what's not? Or what you believe are unreasonable request? Give the ideals a obtainable direction. :unsure:

7:3 or 8:2 could result in enormously high kills per game :evil:

Ok, i've read them all and began creating a list. Lot of cool ideas and some can be done some cannot. It depends on the time and $ I need for it all.

Bugs that are repeatedly mentioned, that I know about and that will be fixed:
Spawn crashes and imbalanced games.

Bug mentioned a lot that I believe was fixed last week:
Ghosting on windows 8 and windows phone. If you still see ghosting, let me know, I haven’t for over a week. It was a pain to fix this one.

List so far of potential new additions (up to page #3):
Blue Max Young, tKestrel: Add Fokker DVII and upgrade the tri planes, or add purchasable upgrades for all other planes.
tKestrel: mission protecting wwi bombers. A figure in cockpit. Own custom squad insignia.
Worcester Sauce: control guns on carriers. Maybe control the zep.
Manfred: make graphics options more detailed so that we can adjust it better.
Madtothebone1: darker water/greenish brown with reflections.
2storm2: all I want for Christmas is to fix ghosting = Santa already fixed it, isn’t it?
Whosethisguy: a MORAF paint job on the allied side. Finish the moderator panels.
Kevy: bomb the base games allow for carriers take off (maybe new type of mission)
General Jackson: anti aircraft guns controlled by soldiers.
Dixieconfederate: don’t leave the carriers so defenseless.
Big tex: playable two seaters and redesign the tanks for WWI. Add the option to switch planes after you respawn.
Frank Baracca: some way to see the chat after a game has ended. Move the bomb view on the right so that it doesn’t cover the chat area.
Vonkopp: zep games should be 2, one for each side.
McFate: some missions ideas like capture the flag, capture airfield, etc.
Davy Crockett: a couple of UFOs fl.. wait, it’s Davy.
CalvinIsAwesome: some kind of prisoners mission.
Madtothebone1: video capture
Slenderman: more planes and upgrade options to spend the gold coins in.
Big Tex: team chat and practice rooms for noobies.
[ws]hd: option to get out of plane and walk around
J4ff: gain points for sitting on carrier. Team Dogfight.
Gizmo541: lights on the trees for Christmas
Cricket: a clock that shows up how long the round lasted. Radar towers to limit radar range.
JohnII: option to adjust sensitivity for each: plane, person and tank. Destroy convoy mission.
Stuart: he wrote a phd thesis. Page #2
Davy Corckett: I just want a couple of UFOs… wait, davy again.
ZandorHawke: when planes crash, both should crash. When it crashes on parachute, bring down the parachute too.
Wigbomb: a balloon busting mission. Terrain variations.
McFate: mission to check off certain way points, land at places and destroy certain targets.
Longrifle: overheat the guns to prevent long bursts.
Avma: put a server indicator so you know which zone you are in to be able to reconnect
This is it so far, up to page #3, keep them coming! I’ll post more when I organize a bit the ideas.

I think it would be cool to have a stat for how many planes shot down from the chute.

I found the PERFECT url link listing all of the World War One Bombers with an artist picture of the WWI bomber.....

www.wwiaviation.com/bombers.html

You can select which country who fought and see the artists list of the specific WWI bombers...

Zuperman...I think if we added either 2 or 3 additional planes that happen to be bombers for each side that participated in WWI it would be great......for example for the Germans: Gothe and a Zeppelin-Staaken R.VI (I prefer 3 on a side....2 different Gothe's and the Zepplin-Staaken) and for the Allied side: British Bristol Braemar and the French Caudron R.11 (I prefer 3 on a side....Bristol, Caudron R.11 and British Vickers Vimy)

Yesssssssssss

Low signal boot. No signal=no play

Also an inactivity boot. No respawn=no play. If you sit and don't play----gone.

Still like the clouds on all the time. (No removing clouds on graphics settings)

And still like "return to base" rather than auto-destroy. Quit/Return to plane.

I would think it would make graphics actually run better. The giant white puffs would obscure some of the more memory taxing terrain. Then again I don't design games so I don't know squat about it. Have you ever played with them on? It is a whole different world. Everyone can see you through them and kill you though. :(

A few months ago i did fly with them on then somewhere around update 4.4.38 my graphics started crashing in game and i had to shut all my graphics off to play. Yet i still see everything you do in game except for the low altitude clouds and shadows

I keep all graphics off. The only thing I keep on are plane sounds and machine gun sounds. Simple cockpit view for a greater field of view. It is a shame to let the graphics go but I would rather have the game function well. Explosions and smoke trails make my iPad glitch and its a 4.

i got another idea. I know im pesky, but i love this game and have nothing better to do but play and/or think of new ideas. How about different tanks, like a germon style or 2 for germans and an allies side or 2 for the Brits/French/Italians. righjt now there is one type of tank and it looks like a ww2 german tiger tank (dont know much about tanks so dont quote me there)

also the ability to bail out wihout being shot down, but to prevent cheaters, have a range limit around the carrier so u cant bail right beside the boat and insure a tank shell into the boat.
actually thats a goodidea, scrath the bailoing idea, could we have a range limit around the carrier like we do for the bases so when campers or pilots around the boat get shot down they cant hit ur boat unless they r out of the carriers range.

31 has become sort of an ol folks home retireee community

this would be very easy to implement, minimal time required

number two

more trees n buildings between the two bases

copy paste if you have to :)

Artillery:

A gun that cannot move.
It does not have your name in red above it, so it's hard to spot.
It fires shells at the enemy base.
It has no camera so you have to rely on your team-mates to tell you if you're close.

Hi Z! First off - LOVE the game.. & although I have only been here a short while there are a couple of things I would like to see happen..
1. Line of sight viewing only - if you & any other player have a mountain between you neither one of you can see the other regardless if you are in a plane or tank. Same goes for if you are inside the carrier. This will give sneaky players in a slow plane like me a chance to bomb more hangers/destroy carriers etc. and will make teams have to put out scouts looking for 'em!
2. The option of hanging out in a battle room & chat with other players after the mission is won/lost - just make all guns stop working. Will increase camaraderie and allow players to discuss tactics, gamesmanship, or just last Monday Night's Footballs game.. lol!
3. The ability to trade in your old planes for new ones.. i.e. take the Red Baron plane & the Nieport XI and trade both in with some points on a upgraded plane.
4. Additional game rooms with different topographical features.

A simple one - how about a N02 button for boost? Forgive me if I'm wrong - and waaaaay to lazy to check my facts - but I think it was WW2 that nitrous oxide was first used in plane engines to give fighters a speed boost during engagements. After the war ex fighter pilots started using NOS on motorcycle engines to try and get that speed rush they were missing, and now today we use it on the streets to race red light to red light against little punks with Subaru's and Mitsubishi Lancer Evo's, eventually earning such names as "Reckless" and "Dangerous". I prefer Reckless ;)
Anyhow, a speed boost would be more than welcome on long bombing runs, and period accurate.....I think.

It wasn't nitrous it was direct water glycol injection to cool the engine so it could provide more power for a short time. W1 planes didnt have that. It was hard enough to make the timing gear work properly so they wouldnt shoot off their own props

What do yall think of this?

Sounds tricky. Its harder to get through with bombs since torpedoes could be lauched from farther away. Maybe flip those hit values around? Or have a fleet to sink?

That's what I get for being waaaaaaay too lazy to check my facts lol! Hell I don't even know which era the game is set in lol! But thanx to you I learned something new - and on a Sunday no less!

Zup, could we get a direct water glycol injection button for a speed boost? It would come in handy on long bombing runs ;)

How about half of the players be pilots.
The other half be AA gunners. With flak as well as bullets! :woohoo:
you could instead of timing it,
Have the battleship go from the far end of the bridge lake, to the end closest to the south base.
Like port to port.
And planes would fly from north base.

All this talk about torpedoes and bombing ships at sea for the game got me to thinking some more. I wasn't sure that there was any naval warfare in the First World War involving airplanes, especially not on the scale of the Second. But I did a little research and found out there was actually quite a bit of experimentation. It's even documented; I found these on YouTube by searching for World War 1 In Color. You need to look for Episode 3. Here are some screen shots from very early in the film, it's about 45 minutes long.







Pretty interesting stuff.
