Hello gentlemen, here's the fourth page of the diary.

  • Small focus on the first of the service vehicles: the tow truck. Useful to reduce the time needed to dismantle wrecks and not keep the mechanics busy for long.
  • But the main news is the introduction of fatigue and stress management. Now it is better not to always send the whole squadron on missions, but it is necessary to leave the camp to rest the most tired pilots.

Hope you like it and thanks again!

Might be more realistic to have excessive stress lead to RTB's due to reported malfunctions (that can't be found by the mechanics).  Extra penalty for ignoring stress is phantom problems with plane wasting mechanics time!

Looks pretty neat. Welcome aboard.

Praying for you and your country.

Good news - the prayers are working.

Bad news - you're praying for the wrong country...

Hi again guys. Here the fifth page of my diary.
  • There is a little focus on pilot ranks. Each pilot gains XP after a successful combat and new skill bonus will be unlocked.
  • New dogfight: I dropped the dice and replaced it with a more strategic and interactive turn-base combat. Also the maneouver set will be different for each plane.

Thanks and hope you enjoy the video!

This looks like a great game! Reminds me of some of those games on smartphone where you are mechanics on normal cars? I'm not big on those and they tend to be more realistic 3D - but I'd enjoy this one and am a fan of the retro graphics style.

I gave it a spin.  It's an enjoyable little romp.  The best thing the game has going for it is the planes:  I'd love to have a better feel for how different planes affect the outcome of a mission.  The combat is fairly basic, but it's obviously not the key part of the game. 

Having flown a couple mission and made my way through maybe 14 combats, I don't have much idea what I'm doing.  If there is some way to make the outcomes of each combat a bit more "shades of gray", that'd be great (e.g., chase off an enemy plane vs. badly damage an enemy plane vs. shoot down an enemy plane).  If I'm able to make choices in combat that balance difficult trade-offs, then the combats become much more gripping and the outcomes more rewarding (when I score a key win) or upsetting (when I go down in flames!).

I like what you have so far.

Here I am with the 7th page of the diary. Based on the feedback received during Steam Festival, I made some improvements, expecially on reconaissance. Now you can control directly what your scout is doing and choose the right target. Also a new mission is spotted: Artillery bombardment, in which you have to destroy some enemy artillery in a row. Hope you like the video and thanks again.
