Storm of War 5 Campaign - Coming Soon

Post by Admin (Reddog) »

Hi all,

As was posted over at IL2 forums yesterday, I'm intending running SoW 5 starting in 2020. There are still a lot of things to do before we're ready and I'm intending on posting here what is and is not going to be implemented.

For now the list of critical things to do are (green is done) :
  • Delete and reset all squadrons & groups
  • Recruit command teams
  • Set starting aircraft and positions
  • Update to include 4.5 aircraft set classnames
  • Update the "SoW Mechanisms" post to explain all the mechanics for players.
  • Determine the balancing of aircraft supply etc
  • Publish an explanation of the goals of SoW and any victory conditions.
  • Decide whether to run 24/7 or events only.

Just an additional note in the case it could be of help.

Starting from patch 4.57 the AI behaviour depending on the experience level set/chosen has been heavily modified so, if you are using " old campaign files " about them they should be updated too otherwise you'll get AI aircraft super sticky ( at higher experiece levels it's almost impossible to scroll them away in certain conditions ) ;)

S!

I am really looking forward to this!

SoW Cliffs of Dover Campaign flying has been sorely missed by me and several friends of mine!

Glad to see it is coming back!

There was me ruined the 129th group when I heard that Storm would no longer be on the BoB platform. Not better. :lol:

That's a good news,
Surely a good reason to get back on clod... IMHO event nights should raise the greatest player base. Back in the days on last SOW I remember the peaks of players on sundays due to double points or something.

Just a question, TOPHAT system will be online or won't?

cheers
