WW1 Guts_Glory Server Event!!

Hi chaps,in an attempt to boost numbers im organising a WW1 event for this FRIDAY 7TH SEPTEMBER 9PM GMT on behalf of Raven, who runs the server.I tried it for the first time yesterday and found the dogfights excellent fun on the equivalent to UK3 settings.Here are some screen shots involving Raven, myself and Sporran.(who are flying in the black knight skins)

some more info on the server:

The Guts and Glory Server presents

The Air Battle of St. Mihiel
(Mission author -=FA=-RaVen)

In the words of JTFM:
" classified as a faux World War 1 Mission because. Obviously Forgotten Battles is a World War II simulation that does not contain World War 1 airplanes.
The means of overcoming this, and the heart of the Mission is the prodigious use of WW1 skins. When applied to several airplanes already contained within Forgotten Battles,
and with the player suspending a certain amount of reality, these skins enable World War 1 to come to life within the confines of a World War II simulation,
thus providing the player an exciting return to the seminal years of aerial warfare.

Planes used and represented

WW1 airplane skins transform the [J8A,] [CR-42 ] [I-153] [P11c,] and [TB-3] into the Albatross D.II/III, Sopwith Pup, SPAD VII, SE5, Martinsyde G.100, Nieuport XVII, Morane Saulnier, BE2c/d/e/f/g, RE8, Sopwith One-and-a-half-Strutter, Albatross C.III, Gotha G.IV, and HP 0/100. All skins were meticulously researched to represent these airplanes as they appeared in April, 1917. Skins include planes from Jastas 2/5/11/30 and KGIII; RFC Nos. 1/3/3N/9/13/16/19/27/34/43/52/
56/59/60/66 Squadrons; Aviation Militaire N3 and SPA124 Lafayette Escadrille. Skinned ace airplanes include Manfred von Richthofen, Lothar von Richthofen, Kurt Wolff, Karl Emil Schäfer, Karl Allmenröder, Werner Voss, Hermann Frommherz, Joachim von Bertrab, Adolf von Tutshek, Hans Berr, Heinrich Gontermann, Albert Ball, Billy Bishop, John Andrews, Lloyd Breadner, Edmund Pierce, Raoul Lufbery, René Dorme, Paul Tarascon, Georges Guynemer, and many others.
All so a complete set of Flyboys JA skins by TripleA007.
(very nice work as well)
plane sets are evenly matched Dependant on map, its more pilot skill against pilot skill . IE there would not be a I-153 on a map were there are Cr_42 and Ja's . ect Plane sets are balanced no uber out of balance stuff going on here skill on skill it the concept here.

The difficulty settings only mini and speed bar are available
no icons ,no external.
This is dog fighters heaven you need to Id, then hunt the enemy this this is were the skins shine. The feed back has been just great, its very immerse.

New maps also in rotation are The Eastern fronts, one and two.
and The Ammunition depot raid



WHAT THIS MEANS IS:
YOU NEED TO GO GET THE SKINS TO PLAY ON THIS SERVER.
There is a net cache file that if used will totally eliminating any skin load lag on the server. Please see details on web site.

Let me know if you are interested and I shall add you to the list as I am also posting on Battle-fields and SimHQ forums.(Max 28 players)

Had a blast Monday Rave! Awesome experience. The skins, A/C selections and map arrangements really come together for a different and totally enjoyable experience.

The quality and sportsmanship of pilots was 1st class all the way.

After flying for a few hours there, I came to really understand the necessity of all the "gaudy" paint schemes in WWI.

Great break from 1940-45 period too. Everyone should do themselves a favor and fly this server for a couple hours every week, particularly if you're getting a little bored with your usual "period".

I flew Gladiators and CR-42's mostly. Absolute blast with just enough variety to change styles every so often, while keeping performance believable.

You and Jaws flew brilliantly together as always.

Great Job

You and Eco were a great team as well, I'm glad you all made it.

Also Thanks to Tim http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif for the help in setting up the upcoming event this Friday.

Ya, it was a blast, (pardon the pun). That bomber run was great fun, too bad I could keep formation that well. We should do this again sometime.
