It's hard for me to participate during the week. At best, I get a game in at lunch and maybe 30 minutes at night. Weekends are a little better, but depending on work emergencies and honey-dos, it could be just as sketchy. If I happen to be in game where someone is playing, I'll help with screen shots.


No worries and thanks for helping PH. This round will be much easier with a photographer since many will need at least a witness or someone to see all the planes in flight.

BIG NEWS! I have decided to give everyone a fair chance and Big C a chance to have internet, the Scavenger Hunt will run from:

Thurs July 18th Noon EST - Monday July 22nd Noon EST


This scavenger hunt is a little different. You will need others to complete a lot of it so points will be awarded to all who are involved in making the items. For example, for planes on the carrier tower everyone on the tower gets points. The photographer sadly doesn't. The one with the most points wins!

Easy - 1 point each

1. To be announced when it starts. This must be the first screen shot of your items. Any screen shots taken before this one will not count. It's how I make it all honest.

2. Inverted Chute - Shot of someone in an upside down chute

3. Fly through hangar. Must have shots of before, in hangar, and after plus a witness.

4. Mountain face landing. You must be stopped and parked on the vertical face of any mountain

5. Inverted plane flying over normal plane

Intermediate - 3 points each

6. Tank on carrier Tower

7. 100 kill game

8. Perfect Dogfight 15 kills 0 deaths

9. Plane Triangle - 3 planes with top wings formed to create a triangle. Wing tips must be no further than 1/2 wing span from each other

10. Plane Square - 4 planes with top wings formed to create a triangle. Wing tips must be no further than 1/2 wing span from each other

Advanced - 5 points each + Bonuses

11. Soldier on top of plane on top of tank (Bonus: any more items you can stack 3 points for each extra item)

12. Dogfight Triple Crown - hit a soldier in chute, a plane in the air and bomb a carrier or hangar with a single tank shot (Bonus: hit more items with the same shot, 5 points for each object hit. Must be plane, tank, soldier, carrier with bomb message, or hangar.)

13. Plane wing geometry - Create a Pentagram with top wings of planes as you did for numbers 9 and 10. (Bonus: if you can make a hexagon 6 pts, heptagon 7 pts, or an octagon 8pts)

14. As many planes on the tower as possible. Wig says 6 has been done. 1 point for every plane

15. As many tanks as possible on the carrier tower 2 points for every tank

16. Letters of the alphabet. Create letters of the alphabet with planes. Must be obvious what letter it is. Points will be given by the number of planes used to make it times 2.

Hey I'm game for being a target, but it can't just be a kill... Gotta come up with sumfing better. Double tap? Consecutive plane and chute kill? Kill my tank with a bomb or tank shell? A kill at the enemy hangars/carrier?(maybe they'll unwittingly let me through just for the chance :whistle: ). Make it harder? I'll fly incognito as any one of Jimmy Buffett's song/book characters... That way they have to figure out that its me? (I can send you a list of character names, whip). Let me know Whippy and I'll play along.
Fuck this place. Second rate hack playing in a yard that's too big for him.

Hey Whip, I am taking a suggestion from those Asiana pilots. Will doing something like this bring in many points?

Ok I will be nice. I do welcome them here and I hope they have a wonderful experience. I am a bit concerned about their mental and emotional states of mind though. I like Pluribus and he is a good pilot but he can be a bit of a downer. Maybe some one should fill them in ahead of time about Plurs tactics. Just sayin.

OK here is what I think, first thanks so much for being part of this guys! Now I am saying 5 points since you only get 5 for hitting soldier, plane and carrier with one tank shot so I would say figuring out who you are plus shooting you down is probably less difficult. So, make up whatever you want as the requirement...fly as another trick name with a clue or some sequence or particular way of death and just let me know. I have Paul down as his name will be: 'Who developed AC current as opposed to DC as the norm?'
should I put you down as your name will be any one of Jimmy Buffet's characters?

Very funny...no! I wish we did have exhaust that we could spell things with but no. Letters must be formed by the planes in the air.

Let's go with the "Double Tap", a plane and chute kill of a JB-related named pilot (i.e. margarita or Ellis Dee). I may use some obscure references to make it a little more difficult, but I'll start with some obvious ones and change it up as needed. I also promise to chute as I usually do (often, but not always)

Whippy,

While I'm not able to participate due to my limited "IT" ability, I did provide some "scavengger hunt assistance" to the pilots participating. Annonymous should have a wonderful pic of about 5 of us plane that landed. While in game it looked REALLY cool
