    Alright.
    I wonder if they'll have a good AI for solo play.

    Added to front page, this is big news !!! Andrea says the A.I is good either in solo play mode or in groups up to 8 (that's as many as he has play tested by the sounds of it)

    Well, the game seems well done. Vedy faithful to the table, real game. Three fighters and one two-seater available at the moment for Germans and the same for Entente, each with three color schemes. Dogfight, tecon, bombing, ground attack scenarios available. Multyplayer or AI. July 21st is not so far away, you will soon see.

    Added to my Steam wishlist. We need an Aerodrome "clan tag" so we can all find each other and set up private games... hopefully Dire Wolf provides something so we can record and post replays.

    No idea of their future plans. Maybe they will also depend on how successful the release is. Let's cross fingers.

    Can players submit custom skins for the planes? Hmmm?

    Like for favourite pilots/squadrons?

    I wouldn't think it would be instantly uploadable, but a process where community input could be available?

    Definitely would be nice, but I guess Android Play and Apple Store require closed code. PC version could be different question.

    Skins/pilot profiles could be uploaded by updates through the Play Stores. There could be a link to an API (online database), depending on how the app is coded, that would allow access to different planes/pilots. It all depends on how the app is created.

    I had this dream of doing a solo app for Battlestar Galactica, that would preload all the ship types and pilots. The app would have allowed custom pilot/ship combinations, as part of the set-up, even allowing picking a pilot level (Aim Bonus) and selecting Talents for a custom pilot. Yeah, I made it too complicated, and beyond my level of ability. But it is doable. Could be something available in the Direwolf app, if they plan ahead for it.

    Interesting, Mike, I didn't know about this possibility. It would be nice, hope the games will have a success and DWD will support it as much as possible

    I do not think so, plane movement seems to be prerendered. It is 2d game basicly.

    A digital version of WoG, and on Steam, and playable on Mac too? It's like Christmas in the summer! I added it to my wishlist immediately, so that I will get a notice when it is released. My gamer group just doesn't like WoG and I never get to play any more. But this is WONDERFUL news.

    I know! I’m eagerly awaiting the same. Should be good for trying different match ups & possible encounters for when my WOG plans take to the skies with the miniatures. Happy Days!!!

    Not a word yet. But I would buy it anyway. I remember "good old times" when we were playing online with missaak's java app on PC and it was great to play our beloved game with friends from far away (Nightbomber was my opponent, if I remember well).

    One of the things that excites me is the fact that true competitive play is now possible. Accidentally bumping a plane a milimeter can decide the game, and it's easy to goof up and forget about the Special Effects affecting your plane.

    What I would like is if, in the lobby, you could tick boxes that stipulated what kind of game you would like to play; i.e.: what planes are options, removing the Boom card, etc.—both players have to agree.

    Also, hopefully, if digital product, such as planes, have a price, then we'll be able to redeem them via codes inside the airplane packs/physical product.

    Next time I exchange emails with RdM, I'll ask about/suggest cross-promotion ideas like that. Wizkids did the same thing with Sony Online for their Pirates CSG...

    That is sad that your gamer group does not like WoG. Did you try them with the simplified one card at a time movement rules? Are there any other gamer groups you can look at in your area?

    This can be VERY interesting!

    Here are the planes that we have:

    Airco DH.4
    Albatros D.Va
    Fokker Dr. I
    Fokker D.VII
    Roland C.II
    Sopwith Camel
    Sopwith Snipe
    SPAD S.XIII

    I get the impression that one can choose any Ace, for any plane, because Max Immelmann appears to be a choice. I fear that that is going to cause aneurysms for some of our historical accuracy sticklers!

    But, Ace skills potentially allow any plane to be competitive!

    Well, this looks promising! July 21st can't get here soon enough. Do they say anywhere how many can play? I love the idea of AI for solo but multi player games would be best.

    Simple fix for that, mock and ridicule the powergamers who do things like "MvR in Fok. D.VII".
