    I play a WW2 PC air combat game called Down in Flames. Fun little game. Here is my idea, not sure how many will be interested.

    1) You choose what nation you want to fly for. Each of the listed countries have several models, of planes, as the years progress so do the planes.

    -USA
    -UK
    -Germany
    -Japan

    2) I will make teams for each country, ideally which I can get at least 5 members for (but I can make it still work with less members on a team, just more the better).

    3) Flight leaders will be named on a first come first serve basis, plus I will take into consideration seniority (Mods I will make you always a flight leader if I have a open space on a team) at first (longer you have been on this site better chance you will start as a flight leader......at least until you are killed in action). Once you are killed, then you have to start most likely as a wingman (depending how people join in).

    4) The more experience you gain as a pilot and avoid being killed, the more skills you gain as a pilot and the better planes you get to fly. But be warned as you get better so does the AI PC enemies you fight.

    5) I will fly your plane for you vs the AI to the best of my ability. I will play no favorites whether it be country or person.

    6) I will give a small story of what happened in each battle as I play them. I will take turns between all countries teams and players....no favorites. If your plane is able to fly and is combat ready you will fly. If you plane is still not repaired since last flight you sit until repaired.

    7) Lets all see and get a laugh who leads us in kills. Most kills per mission. Most times shot down and survived. I will post what you killed or what killed you. Etc Etc.


    Sound interesting? Let me know, post here if you want to play. Join in any time. This thread could of went into the game section but I could not find a suitable place for it, Mods feel free to move it if you want.

    This thread is light hearted and for fun only, no one take it too serious, it's just a game. This a PC game that I never made so don't complain if you don't like the "unrealistic results" LOL. It's just for fun.

    Who will be the greatest Ace on this forum?

    You?

    PlanD you for sure are a flight leader, glad to have you on board.

    Wilbur you need to tell me what country you want to fly for, then I will be happy to assign you a plane.

    A guy named Thor is a flight leader for sure.

    Warhawk? No problem it fits your character to a tee.

    Ok at this point I have the following:

    -No Mods yet interested

    -PlanD is flying a Spitfire (UK)

    -Thorlifter is flying P-40 (USA)

    -Njaco is flying Bf-109 (German)

    -Wilbur I am guessing he wants a P-40 but he never actually said (USA)

    -Hunter368 is flying a Ki-61 b/c no one loves the Japs but me LOL (Japan)

    I have room for 4 flight leader per country and 4 wingman per country. I will start flying missions for guys and people can feel free to join at any point just post here what country you want to fly for and I will get you a plane.

    Japanese please.

    And I'm feeling a tad depressed at the moment, so I'd be willing to volunteer for Kamikaze duty.
