Just wanted to say this, because after the AEP the greatergreen servers disappeared, there were almost no lag, no icons over enemy aircrafts which makes it even more realistic and so on... is it any chanses that it will come back??

I think theyre waiting for the dedicated server patch. It is definately the best server out there if u can get on it.

They are waiting, as are we and alot of others who "used" to run dedicated servers.

I miss it too...but Warclouds has stepped in and filled the void VERY WELL!

Thanks again to the Warclouds server team!

Txmx are you guys going to include a TS server? That would be great if you did.

I miss gretergreen too. Warclouds has stepped up and runs great servers, especially the Touch of History one. I wish they would turn off enemy icons on that server.

Yeah, Warclouds is a great replacement, but they really should turn off enemy icons aswell as making the server run better, sometimes it just megafreeze

All are correct. the greatergreen server is alive and well. We are simply waiting for the dedicated server for ACES which is purported to accompany the pending patch.

We have done a few new maps and tweaked some of the existing ones as well so, after the patch release all should be right with the world again.

I would like to "mark out" on behalf of the warclouds server as well. I've spent a few hours flying there as well and would like to say thanks for a fun server.

Good to hear its coming back, been my favorite server since IL2. Best maps, best plane selection, best settings, etc. Waiting in anticipation.

the A6 is scheduled to be IN the patch so, any of the maps we've made to date actually won't have it. It WILL be incorporated though...rest assured.

Yes, Xnomad, we are looking into the possibility of running TeamSpeak for the users on the server as it really adds to the teamplay factor!

LOL Thunderbolt, that is Elfunko's sig. He was on a mission to get the FW-190A-6. I think his sig was Oleg's reply.

Definatly greatergreen was the best server on HL, for now the only alternative is Warclouds44+ but it needs some more missions, historical planesets and gg's friendly only label settings for TS purposes.

Im going though the greatergreen widthdrawls too. Its been more then a month its been down becuase of the wait for the patch and dedicated server.

Wow...I thought it only "seemed" like a month or more as I've been the homeless-nomad for all that time http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Ditto to all that has been said, but one thing (Warclouds has been doing a great job in the abscence of GG, need more missions, blah, blah):

Whenever I fly in Warclouds I NEVER see icons (which bugs me since my ID'ing ability sucks). H

How come I DON'T see them and you guys DO? Is the "Annoy" setting on?

i bet you're talking about different "icons".

btw, if you're gonna remove the icons, it's stupid to remove it only on enemy planes.

i think the warclouds icon setting is perfect as it is.

I don't understand why you would say that. If the enemy icons are turned off, it then becomes possible to properly "bounce" an enemy or even dive away and escape without being detected...like in real life.

Of course, you have to have externals and padlock turned off too, but we do that...so the point is moot.

Check and see in your controls section if you have your icon ON key mapped. I use Shift F11. Cycle through, they're there.

I'm also going through GG withdrawls, but have to say Sparxs is doing a nice job with Warclouds. In fact, when I couldn't get on GG (which will probably be the case once its up and everyone needs to nurse the fix) I used to get on Warclouds through the UBI server. Lotsa fun.

in real life, can you see the friendlies better than the enemies? no. therefore uneven icon setting is not like real life.

Its nice to be able to positively ID enemy plane types when you are on comms. It makes group tactics far more sensible. If you're teamed up with several people, and you see a dot, it helps to know what it is. Most times you can all survive because the proper tactic is chosen by the group.

An example is a group of lightings with a bombload. If they know that the enemy plane is unable to stay with them in a dive, the whole group survives by running balls-out for the deck. If they can't outrun, they call for help, and if it is available, there is a good chance that most of the group will successfully make thier run, if not all.

Relying on in-game rendering would require you to get unrealisticly close to figure out what type of plane is coming for you. This pretty much assures loses for no reasons other than technology limitations. There really is no fun in that.

The current icons on warclouds is perfect for team-play.
