Currently on: Week 9 - West New Guinea Highlands
-----------------------

We've been talking about doing something weekly for a while now, so here goes.

Have a new technique you've been itching to try? Want to try out a new plane? Just need some good solid trigger time? Then Monday Night Fights are for you!

Every week we will pick a new locale that is outside our normal flying areas. Why? Because a large terrasync folder is a happy terrasync folder. Also, it's great to see all the amazing scenery that this Earth has to offer. There are some amazing places out there.

Teams and game-types will be impromptu and depending on who's on mumble, but a return to basics is encouraged - a la Capture the Tower (we may need volunteers to add towers beforehand if this is a popular option - adding towers is easy! Just ask Leto =] ), Team Deathmatch, and Bomb the Base.

General Info

When: Mondays, ~16:00 UTC to Tuesday early morning UTC - come when you can, don't stress if you can't. The time is more of a general suggestion.
Where: Check this thread for location info!
What: Dogfighting centric awesomeness

Now...

MONDAY NIGHT FIGHT
WEEK 1 | WEEK 7

THE RWENZORI MOUNTAINS

Situated in the heart of Africa, these majestic mountains are home to glaciers and are one of the sources of the Nile. Situated on the border between Uganda and the Congo, a large river valley is entrenched by mountains on either side for hundreds of miles.

I did some flying in the area last night and took some cool footage in the Vigen and Mirage. After watching I realized even though I turned my mic off on OBS, mumble was still recorded and there was a lot of Leto talking to himself. ;) Whoooooops!

Are we going to do this thing or not? I haven't seen any replies other than what 3 people? I'll hit up whoever I see On mumble and see if I can get some participants.

We had one solid game yesterday, only it was in Alaska and not the Rwenzori Mts due to some scenery issues or something. Hopefully next week we get some more participation.

Also, pro tip: load up scenery beforehand. =]

I didn't even think anything was happening last night, by the time I got to turn I turned on mumble everyone was gone except Leto asleep in his chair.

Are infantry and RPGs implemented? If so, will this lead to a MANPADS? Just trying to clarify what was said and meant there.

SNOWY1, it was meant more as a joke. FG doesn't have man-portable air defences (yet). Could you imagine a walker with a MANPAD and a AKM? LOL
