You are right REDNOSE, since I've been trying to learn how to dogfight real good it has become apparent that the ipad is no competition for other devises.

There is nothing to give or help any user on any platform. If you don't have a fighting chance in apple you won't in any other platform. You need more training :p

Hi Zup,

Thanks for the encouragement!
Heard there is a way to choose the size of the letters above the planes in the game......

Where do I change that?

Thanks!

Great work on this game,very addicting and we love it! thank you Zuperman!
So I thought this would be really cool in addition to a tank as a choice,adding a hovercraft or ACV (air cushion vehicle). This would allow access over water! It shouldn't have the fire power of a tank since you could pull up to a ship but maybe a machine gun for use on reds. I understand hovercrafts weren't around when baron was flying but neither were gps/radar mapping, but we all love them!
Someone mentioned earlier about the gray/white plane direction indicator on the map, I also have issues reading that, the arrow type indicator he suggested would be awesome!
And I second the notion to keep in game chat relegated to your own team,just like squads have the advantage there. I also see a lot of cussing in game which I think this could help reduce i.e. no typed threats/cussing towards enemy whether spelled out or implied.
Thanks again for all your consideration!

Hi Rudolph! on my galaxy tab its under settings in a graphics tab.in there is a slider like the sensitivity one and a sample text so you can see the affect.pros and cons I found. con,I set it small and it made all others tags tiny and I had a hard time acquiring reds at a distance. pros;up close,reds and blues were easier to distinguish and was not a jumbled pile of squad names and tags,it was cleaner.I'm assuming it makes your tag smaller but how would I know unless someone told me.
hope this helps!

I believe that a fuel option, or a timer, would limit a lot of the abuses by players camping and spawnkilling, in this game. Allow enough time for a player to fight their way across the map, fight over enemy base for only a short time before they have to get back to home base or crash. On a more sophisticated level a bomb dropper who only wants to "cover the bombers" could lose a portion of their fuel thus hindering their ability to linger over enemy base. Fighters in reality have always had shorter legs than bombers, and were tasked with defending their bombers on the way to the target, not flying to the target and waiting on the bombers.

1) balancing of player distribution B)
2) smaller maps. Major part of the game is just waiting for your plane to get to one place to another. not really the plane on plane fight.
3) maybe every 15 or 30 minutes, the game is interrupted and all the players are entered into the dogfight game or all players are given the basic plane and race to the finish/find flag or something? then taken back to the original game once mission has been completed.
Can't bring down faster and better planes? MAKE THEM CRASH.

Hi all, thanks for your support. But in settings, graphics there is no such option to change fontsizes.
In the latest Apple update, that is.

Any more suggestions?
Still......puzzling.

Could show you the picture of the setting menu, but the forum wont let me.

I really hope we can get a sider for the chat-combat log text size as well. Or some other adjustment to make it less intrusive as it's changed in the last few weeks. If a long name kills a long name that message can stretch to mid screen now, and a long sentence will stretch the full width of the screen. The text height is about 10% of the screen. This makes for a dangerous vision impairment. Not having chat on is a poor option as I'll lose the combat information.

I keep forgetting to add this one. Can the name tag above the plane it's self disappear as soon as the pilot parachutes out? This would help greatly with the name jumbles when many planes are close together by not having double names.
If this also set the plane to a neutral object of sorts (and not still a red or blue plane) it would be perfect. The parachuting pilot's allies who are now having to return the killers fire are penalized if they strike the now burning empty plane just as if they shoot their team mate. The team mates will still have to work to avoid the parachuting ally still of course.

Ive tried to go through the list, but man what a list it is!

I like the game. Got hooked on it because of its simplicity, yet realism at the same time.

My opinions;

Graphically its good. Start trying to add more and it gets to where the lagging might become more of an issue.

I think adding to the realism, while keeping it simple, is the way to go for "improvement". Although its a good game in and of itself.

Adding more planes, of the WWI era, is probably the best approach I can think of and does not take away from the game as it is. I think adding 2 seat planes, such as the AEG C.IVN(although not technically a fighter, I think the Aviatik C.I looks better and would serve the same function of the AEG C.IVN) and Whitworth FK.8, would provide the 'cool' factor of having a true tail gunner. In fact, I believe both those planes carried more than one bomb so that would add the "bomber" type plane to the pack that people would like to see.

I also like the idea of the AA guns. It is a real thing that would serve a purpose and would not take away from the game at all.

Add in some night missions. Not sure if that has been said yet, but man that would be cool seeing the bullets whiz by you or seeing a plane going down on fire.

All in all, unless it is too complex, keeping teams even is the best thing to do. But along with that, anything that would help promote 'team' work would make it more realistic. I am sure there were a lot of renegade pilots out there during the war, but most of the time they worked together.

Oh, I like the choosing the plane color thing. It might not be period correct, but it would probably make some people like it better if they could choose their own planes color. I would personally stick with the colors on them already, but that's just me.

I'm sure whatever you come up with will be great, please just don't take away from the simplicity of how to play/fly. That is this games #1 advantage over other games I believe.

That's about all I got to say about that.

One more thing, if this was to get adventurous. What about an option, like the multiplayer one, that says squadron instead. That would take you to a server or a game set up to host only squadron fights. I know with one of my routers I can mark certain addresses and send them certain places. So maybey the server could see what squadron your in and send you to a game where there are other players in your squadron.

I'm sure there is a lot of detail that may have to go into something like that, but it seems reasonable/doable. Lol

Apple? I have made it into the top 50, using my IPad2. Blue Max uses an IPad, he is #6. I don't think apple is a disadvantage. DAVY Crockett#3, also plays on an Apple.

Thanks Von,

You are right about Davy using an IPad, he even has a topic started on it (need help to dogfight).
First I thought he was kidding, of course....but he said he is serious about buying a Galaxy Thingy, just to DF.

It's not that I dont love the iPad, but lately it's a bit like it's outclassed, or the update is outpreformed.

Just to point out a disadvantage, I started the thing on fontsizes above planes...
In the Apple you cant change it, and you fly into a mush of red letters.
Android, windows and such do not seem to have that.

The gameplay just seems slower than it used to be, and Davies and others story seems to confirm that.

Still realy love the game.....and there IS an upside to it all!

My humility grows every game, and finally my hand-eye-coordination can keep up with it. Lol!

I had this idea come to mind last night too, two Ton!This would allow squadrons to have showdowns all the time! I was thinking you would select "squad fight" as you said,then your squad pilots would populate the game until each side reached a cap of 10 pilots,that would seem reasonable,20 total players(15 might be better so graphics/frame rate would improve),then the game would begin.
Two mission choices;
1.team with highest cumulative score wins,say 200 hits for example(thats 20 hits per player or cumulative).
2.Elimination! Last pilot(s) flying! this would be cool,you get shot down 3 times and your out!
Chat would have to be relegated to each squadron,this is a must.
Later!...Templar...

Game almost perfect. Anti aircraft guns good idea from someone else. Also more planes. The one thing I would like is a disclaimer stating this is a COMBAT SIMULATOR, and as such shooting a plane on takeoff IS NOT spawnkilling. You already fixed parked planes from being shot down. I miss it personally. Otherwise all good. Maybe more maps. Please dont make them smaller because getting to the fight part of war. Thank you so much. Keep doing what you are doing

I've got a lot of ideas for you Zup, so hold on tight!
bring back the town
bring back duckwing monument
add option to climb out of plane/tank and walk
fix spqwn crashing
add upgrades for all planes
allow tank to drive and turn turret at the same time
fix the issue with laptops and coins/squadrons
move bomb view over to right side
lower lake w/ bridge water level...there is a random patch floating in midair to the southwest because it is too high
coordinate system on map for locations
add paint jobs for the planes that you can spend your coins on... top players have nothing to spend them on
have a team chat in game for strategy
make soldier able to run and walk
at the plane selection screen, enable any plane to be chosen
during plane selection show the number of players on each side
before/during plane selection show what mission it is

for now I think that's it
I hope you at least put some of this in, but I understand if you cant do it all!

I've got a quick one I just thought of. It would be nice to see the planes you have, and that are available, in the hangar without actually having to go on mission. Make sense? If I spend too long looking at my planes then it gives me a server connection loss.

Hey Zuperman, I know you have alot to do concerning DF...but I thought it would be cool to add this plane for the german side....

www.buscinfo.com/EZ-PhotoAlbum/Album10_WWI_Ger/Gotha_Bomber.jpg

Sort of the same idea with the zepplin...just one person flys it it.
Possibly include another person as a gunner....I know its very complex but I thought it would be cool...
