Flying Circus

Postby SYN_Mike77 » Mon Jul 30, 2018 1:17 pm

The first two planes of Flying Circus are out now and Skydance, Spud and I had a go with them yesterday. Great fun! The game already looks and feels excellent and it's very early days. I hope that more of us get back into WW1 flying as this game matures.

Bonus!!! Those of us who bought into Rise of Flight back in the day get a discount on Flying Circus if you buy soon! I think most of us will qualify for the whole 20% discount.

imho, Not much to see here, at the moment. I supported this project but I'll be sticking to RoF for my WWI fix, for now I think. SO many good features of RoF are missing it ain't worth flying this atm for anything other than novelty reasons. Someday maybe...

It's sort of interesting to set up a QMB of, say, one 109 F4, vs. 8 SPADs. Results are not surprising- a turkey shoot.

The BoX AI is such absolute shit though, maybe I could shoot down 8 109s with a SPAD.

As we were talking about FC planes behaviour last night:

Looks like the actual FMs are not supposed to be WIP....

A tidbit from that thread (from An. Petrovich):

Hi guys,

We conscious come back to FM before the update of RoF 1.034 (December 2014), where the characteristics of a number of planes were changed for the "game balance" because of under the pressure of players on the forums. We don’t want to repeat such mistakes anymore, therefore, performances of all airplanes in the Flying Circus are preserved as they were in reality.


So that's good, I think!

Not sure if that's a good thing. Maybe that means the game will be tedious for one side and fun for the other.

I know we dream of realism in flight sims, but I think it should be fun and balanced first of all. Realism goes further then " accurate" fm only.
