- Fixed (bug or feature who knows....). However, when an aircraft is hit, a self destruct process is begun.
To model, especially if burning, the degradation over time of the ac structure due to the damage.
This damage is inflicted by the "SYSTEM" and does not count as damage inflicted by the shooter.
For a kill to be registered to a specific player, the player must have inflicted more than 20% overall damage
to the opponent. In the new FW2 damage model this resulted in that sometimes, a single incendiary round could start a fuel tank fire,
with the corresponding fire damag inflicted by the system and that inspite of a good hit the kill was registered as a system kill,
and did not count a a kill for the shooter. The percentage is now set to 5% inflicted damage to get a score for the downed aircraft.
Still, to get credited for a kill, a fluke bullit probably wont be enough. TY Grudden for finding this.

Finally a new release....
Been busy working on ships new aircrafts etc.

This release version 2.43 adresses the problems many players had recently with their inventorys.
The inventory save and recovery system has been redesigned totally and hopefully most of the recovery problems
will go away.

If this works ok, I'll go back working on the new arenas and stuff.

A new release is coming out now.
A few bugs have been fixed and player numbers online is now shown in the hangar.
A new early war furball map has been added. Intent here is that it should be the next
logical step from flying the texan only.

If you see Macchi's 202 and 205 flying around, no worries, it's just Mino testing the flight models
for a future release of this aircrafts :)

Hi all!
As most of you already have figured out. I've been busy preparing a new arena.
The new arena hopefully keep everyone busy for months if not years to come.
Finally I managed to get most of the game play mechanisms that I originally
planned for FighterWing into the game engine. Still, there's tons of stuff to add,
but now almost anything will be possible.

The "advanced" is highly configurable, almost everything is possible to
set by a configuration message (from scene admins) or from prepared scenes loaded by the advanced server.
This will make special events or recurring events (like the famous BOB) possible, with different rules, plane sets,
weather, time of day etc. etc.

I really wanted to release something before Christmas this year (2015 for the record), and I will :). It's not finished (far from really),
treat it more like an open beta, but here it is.

A short description of the new stuff to be discovered in the "Advanced" arena.
General game play in the first (default) Advanced arena:
The goal it to control/invade the opponent country. This is done by occupying opponent airbases by
landing on them when all local opposition i.e. (all buildings, except the tower) are destroyed.
This is easyer said than done. The AAA is in full swing doing their AI best to protect their airbase.

Radar. Radars post are placed at strategical places and feed radar plots of friendly and enemies. If a radar post are destroyed,
that area of the map will be with out the map radar plots (arrows are still there). So it is important to
kill enemy radar posts.

Rebuild. When buildings and ships are destroyed or damaged a rebuild is started. The actual time it takes to rebuild
a certain object is dependent on the team war production facilities. These are factories and merchant vessels
(yes merchant ships). It is important to keep destroying the opponent´merchant ships and ultimately the factories.

Each airbase has ownership of nearby radar posts and factories and if an airbase is captured, it's owned radars and factories
will get into the hands of the occupying team.

The advanced briefing. here you have an tactical map, like what the allies had during the BOB.
It's similar the the friendly arena with some additional features. The map is enhanced with a grid, I will get back to this later. An info button providing a brief of the current scene settings. An armory button,
here you may add ordnace to your aircraft hard points. The ordnace will cost a few funds. Hopefully this will make
old time playes where funds have piled up busy doing some low level work before engaging opponent aircraft and
let noobs start playing as fighter escorts. Then unlike all other arenas
the advanced briefing has a team chat. The idea here is that returning from a mission, to change airport or load out
every one can acts as a team controller, giving a message to the in game team players about where the enemy is heading
or if a team assault is on its way, give warnings of enemy aircrafts or ships etc.

The armory. ordnace or fuel weight will affect aircraft performance as both fuel and ammo load now are part of the physical model.
if you add a lot of external ordnace or fuel it will make the aircraft heavy and possible quite difficult to fly.
When stuff are dropped, ammo fired or fuel burned the aircraft wil get lighter.

Releasing ordnace. A new weapon select button will toggle between guns, fuel, bomb, and rocket. The release
is done by the ordinary "fire" button. Default one actuator signal is sent to the hard points for each press
on the fire button. If more than one is desired, there's a command to set the desired ripple. If two rockets are to be fired at
each trigger press, the command /RIPPLE 2 will make that happen.

Naval forces. Right now we have a coule of merchant ships cruising the channel for both teams. For the protection of
these traders, there's also a couple of destroyers cruising the same shipping lanes. To figure out if a ship is on your team
is not hard, if it shoots at you, it's not friendly. After a while you will see that alpha and beta merchants
use different models and that ALPHA team use an British z-class destroyer and that BRAVO use an s-class German
destroyer model.

The scene will reset when one team has fully occupied the other. Scored in AA and AG are recorded, I've
just not yet figured out how to display the score tables. Actually, I've been thinking about how to display
the monthly/yearly scores for all arenas anyhow. Probably I need to create a FW score web....

Anyhow, keep the great input coming, even as I don't reply all the time, most of it are read and if I miss anything,
I'm pretty sure the community will get the message thrugh.

Thanks, Merry Christmas and check six!

Hi a close follow up release of the new advanced arena. Several issues were found after a few hours of playing for real, and most of these are fixed in the release.

Stuff fixed:
- Most severe were the fact that ordnace cost were withdrawn if aircraft crashed
or ditched and that ordnace cost were withdrawn if a failed attempt to enter the arena,
like if wrong aircraft was selected. Pm me on the forum or send an email and I will fix
inventorys that suffered from this.
- The advanced briefing map is now much more responsive.
- Rearm reful now work in the furball arena.
- Friendly player names are now displayed in the briefing map correctly.

From now on, no hacked apk's or extended lag periods (indicating a switch) will be allowed online.

Nor any mofifications of the game resources. It's considered a cheat to replace or modify graphics or other resources.
