Everyone's giving Oleg grief about what they think belongs or doesn't so here's mine:

How about an Officers' Club with a bar? Sure. Make it so that at the end of a mission, you hit Control+B and head to the bar.. Perhaps, when you do the cockpit flies open, you jump out, and can walk around. I guess first you would have to stop off for debriefing, but then you can head to the offivers' club to unwind. It could look and work kinda like MOH (simplified) and you pull a chair up and see all of your buddies sitting around the bar table. You can type in the chat window or use RW or whatever..

I'd even pay for it as an add-on to the game. I mean when we aren't flying we are all in the forums anyhow. So make it a little more social and bring in some of that cheap wine, or whisky or vodka. Off to the side you got some of the boys throwing dice, near the window is a guy writing a letter to his gal, etc... Oleg? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Ok. Another idea is that when you bail out, you actually have the option to decide to trek back to your base, just like they did back in WWII (the ones who made it). If you make it back safely, And it could take hours...hell, on some maps even days, you get to keep your kills.. Then when you make it back to base, the first thing you do is hit "Control+B" and you're RTB!!! Just hit me up fellas, I gotta a million of these... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Ok, here's one more. Airborne Infantry. Instead of dropping bombs you drop men! Maybe they can have objectives like securing a bridge or seizing an airfield which can then turn friendly if they succeed! Then you can play FB for total map domination! Maybe one day.. Right? Then men could even be selectable...

Crazy idea .) I like it a ingame game a place for a rest with card games ,game of darts other entertainment. A pinboard with current missions stats and maybe the setup for the next one. (Briefing and Debriefing could be there too). Maybe a brief visit to the mechanics that fix your plane(or that what is still left) after your last mission.

Well, I don't know about selected the men, but there are paratroopers in the game already. Select and Li-2 in the QMB and set some paratroopers... you can watch the fun when you shoot them down /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Great idea.....

Would it be possible to download a pint of beer....??

This would be a winning feature of the next patch....

....any beta testers??....perhaps we could measure the 'pour rate' of russian versus german beers and start a virtual whine club??

....in 5 years or less this may be possible....


Cheers

...this has got me thinking................

What about the girls behind the bar??.......

Should the best chat-up line secure her favours??

How virtual should this get??


Another patch to wait for.


In anticipation

Yeah but how would they regulate it? You see you gotta think about these things..Otherwise we are getting a little ahead of ourselves in what is actual possible.

Unless, online pubs could get their e-Liquor Licenses..No, I take it back, it is entirely possible.

Dropping troops, and even supplies to repair bases and tanks, is already in AH and WB - - so no for FB, but I heard Oleg was doing a WW2 RTS with all kinds of units and the FB graphics engine, and that he was distantly planning for a MMOG Sim.

Maybe in this life (and BTW AH2 is coming up, AH already has mannable tanks and flaks and troop dropping, even commandeable carriers etc http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif , this time with an overhauled graphics engine and FM)

FB: 666th Redskulls Sqdn. (http://www.666th.com), 666_dtx
AH: JG301 "Wilde Sau" (http://www.jg301-wildesau.de), dtx

Great! And if you get caught you get to play some kind of minigame which tasks you with resisting the German torture and/or escape. Then when (if) you get back home you get another minigame which tasks you with survival in a Gulag (which you were sent to for getting caught by the Jerries in the first place - gotta love that crazy Stalin /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ). Then if you pass both these games you are awarded with the title of hero of the Soviet Union ('course you can't fly anymore, since the war has long ended).

Is this a great idea or what!? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Actually one of the things I liked about the old European Air War game (a GREAT game) and Billy Gate's newest Combat Flight game (a flawed game that isn't so bad with the 1% models) is that they sort of feel "alive," whereas Oleg's game, as good as it is, seems a bit sterile.

A Bar scene, like in the old Microprose stealth fighter game would liven things up a bit...
