rb_steamA RED Baron Pack has been released on Steam fr $9.99. It includes both the original Red Baron and the Red Baron 3D releases.

I just tried the Red Baron 3D and it works really well – just click on “Glide” in the settings to get slightly better graphics 🙂

Albatros PosterIt has been far too long, but I’ve combed through the site and cleaned up our links. Also added some excellent new sites as well. Be sure to check them out when you get an opportunity.

In the meantime, keep on flying, and Happy Holidays!

A NEW Red Baron!

New Red Baron“Red Baron is back! The best dogfighting flight sim of all time returns from Damon Slye, the original creator of Red Baron.” This is what we found on a Kickstarted site after LW_Ronin forwarded us a link to the amazing news recently. And while myself and many of the Lone Wulffe have contributed, this is what I found when I checked in at the Mad Otter Games Kickstarter Campaign site today:

Greetings Backers and Red Baron fans,

As some of you have noticed and mentioned, the Kickstarter for Red Baron hasn’t been quite as successful as we had hoped. We are a new to crowdfunding, and in turn the Red Baron campaign didn’t quite reach as many ears as we needed.

That being said, we are going to cancel the Kickstarter campaign… for now. We will still be moving forward with Red Baron with the plans to relaunch the campaign early next year.

In the next few months we will be honing our message and vision, along with improving Red Baron based on the feedback we received from all of you.

What we need you to do is help us grow awareness and community. If we want Red Baron to succeed then we need to get the word out. We will be doing our part, improving Red Baron, but we need your help as well. Please tell friends, invite others to one of our social platforms, share us, tweet us, whatever it is that you do, please do it!

So I am posting this, and if there’s anything anyone else can do to get the word out, by all means do so! I will do my best to keep you posted (a little better than I have been of late…)

Lone Wulffe Fokker Dr.1Just added a link to a VERY handy new page that lists the status of the current Rise of Flight servers.  If you click on a server name, you’ll be able to see who flying within as well as what aircraft are available at a glance.  Very nice.

New features include new videos (Dr1 and Camel Dueling at Dusk and Mikael Carlson’s Fokker Dr1) posted to the Media page, and new historical aircraft (Walter Bonin’s Albatros D.Va), new squadron aircraft (Ronin’s Fokker Dr.1) and new single player missions (eight in total, all posted with permission by their creator, sweeteye) on the ROF Resources page.  Finally, updated and added new links under a new category called “Commercial.”

Back From R&R

on January 26, 2012 in News | No Comments »

Red Cross FlagSorry for the long delay in updates and posts. Had a bit of a scare late last fall that I am still recovering from. What was supposed to be a routine appendectomy turned out to be almost a month-long stay in the hospital, over a week of which was spent in a coma.

I could barely walk and get around once I came to and am still recovering my atrophied muscles. Needless to say, I’ve been grounded for quite a bit (as other priorities have taken over), but am starting to get back in the cockpit again and also hope to start painting our aircraft again shortly as well.

S! Jupes

Lone Wulffe Fokker Dr.1Historical and Fictional Community Skin Packs Vol.8 were just released concurrently with Version 1.012 for RoF.  What does this mean for Lone Wulffe squadron?  Our first official squadron skins for our favorite ride, the Fokker Dr.1, were included in Community Fictional Skinpack Vol.8!  Included for our squadron are the generic skin for the squadron as a whole, and skins for myself, Amish, Dumbo, Fish, Flozzie, Hoss and Malhard.  Once you download and install the skin pack, you’ll be able to fly proudly with your Lone Wulffe colors using “Mods Off”.

I have skins ready for squadron approval for the Fokker DVII, Fokker DVIIF, Albatros D.II early, Albatros D.II late, and will be starting the Albatros D.V series shortly.

Gentlemen, it’s time to get these crates in the skies 🙂

TeamspeakAs a squad, we’ve been seeking the best form of communication once we are in a multiplayer server; and while Teamspeak was on the top of our list, we had no way of implementing it without our own communications server.

I am happy to announce that we now have our own squadron channel thanks to =FB=Vaal, who very generously has not only established a Teamspeak server for the ROF community in general, but has also established a channel just for Lone Wulffe!

So fellow pilots, I highly recommend you download and install the Teamspeak client at your earliest opportunity.  This will enable us to start practicing… hint, hint…

PropellorWell with summer here, things on the virtual side of life move a little slower as real life interferes a bit more.  Nonetheless, I managed to complete squadron skins for the Albatros D2 (both early and late versions).  They are posted on the Rise of Flight Resources page.

I also added a “Media” page to the site.  This is actually quite a bit of fun as you’ll see if you are any kind of World War One aviation fan.  You’ll find embedded YouTube videos of airshows, replica aircraft, original aircraft, historical documentaries and a video developed from Rise of Flight tracks that is very creative.

I’ve watched a few of them dozens of times now 🙂

Albatros D2VERY happy to announce the addition of Malhard, and the return of Padre – welcome to Lone Wulffe Malhard, and welcome home Padre!

In other squadron news, I’ve completed the squadron skins for the Fokker DVII and DVII F, so pilots, when you get a chance, please review them/try them out and let me know your thoughts in the Wulffe Den.

Our Fokker Dr.1 squadron skins made it through the voting process at the ROF forum with a final vote of 18 positive to 2 negative.  Pretty good for fictional skins 🙂  The next skins I’ll begin work on will be the Albatros D2 (early and late versions).

Finally, I’ve added quite a few more links and downloads over the past couple of weeks.  In particular, you will find quite a few additional downloads available in the ROF Resources area.
