Understand that I know nothing of programming or anything else, but here is an idea to change the maps a little.

First add trenches from lake to lake. They can be static as in the train tunnels. Wasnt much movement in them anyway during the war. This would just be scenery change.

Second, here is the fun part, randomly generated anti aircraft guns. AI controlled maybe. Both sides could have them and if you flew too low over one you might get shot down. Thats how the Red Baron got his. And the death would count in your stats.

Like I said, I dont know anything about programming, or code writing, or whatever, might be a nightmare to put into place.

That sounds pretty cool. To take it a step further have the trenches generate anti aircraft fire if you fly too low. With that, one trench could be allied, one German.

Ive always though that randomly moving the bases to different spots on the maps. Would be fun.
It wouldn't be just down the valley of death any more
If zup could pre select where the bases are for a game it would be like having added new boming missions. Same maps the bases are in different spots.

Ffs... some times ago there was players begging to get the old good Dogfight back, Everyone that think they needed to venting their dissatisfaction made this also... pointing out all the bad desicions made by Zup that coursed all the problems and made the game more or less unplayable...

Now it seems to be totaly forgotten...
Zup! It would be good for the game if you do this or that. Thats seems to be the new litany...

For good sake let the game get more stabile as it need to be... let zup try do some more fine tuning so it really might give the same experience that it gave us when DF was in its prime... will you ?

I make no claims that it would improve the game, no demands for this or that. Simply making a suggestion that Zup might consider, in future updates. Possibly one he has never considered. No harm in an idea is there?

That is true, there were some bad times for the game, whether bad decisions, or poor ideas. My idea could just as easily become a bad one, lots of room for it to go good or bad, adding lag for instance. Maybe the AI guns would be too good, or have too much range. But without an exchange of ideas all progress would slow to a crawl and little would be achieved. Likewise without input from players, Zup has no way to know if there is a problem or an area needing attention.
Wouldn’t you agree?

Of course he need input on things that no working as it should... thats not the same as suggest do changes ingame
Might be best to do a beta version before publishing a mayor change or add on... think theres several players from all platforms to do testings before launch it in public... this way it might be less damage if the updates that been made is working poorly instead of was ought to do

I figure the bases are already in the game. Would it be that difficult to move both bases to different spots???? Like one game has them where they are and the next game they might be in totally different locations. And in the years i played i found some spots that would really change up btb missions .if zup could put them in different spots just to try the idea it shouldn't screw up things .just the players needing to learn new tactics .

Zup could use the same btb map. Just move the bases so there would be a few different btb missions .

The idea that would do most difference is if you Zupp made the bases random.
everyone that have been playing for a while knows what i talk about... the central axel players have more favors that the allianze...in missions in air aswell on ground...


Time to make the allied start winning...lol

Hi

Keep them coming. I'm always open to new stuff.
Actually about the bases, I thought about adding or changing them long ago. That's why the map is so big and "unused". It was planned for several different missions (the random horse next to the train station was there for something... now on pending status). There are several problems when adding/moving bases though... they have to be balanced (not one side be on way more advantage than the other due to the terrain) and I also have the flatten that area for a base and wait for everyone on every platform to have the same update so that everyone sees exactly the same.

Same goes for AI guns and such. Anyway, thanks for the new suggestions I keep a list of things and what most people thought would be a good idea and from time to time I add new stuff.
