I changed the little plane icons because I run out of new ones. Being not a graphics artist I got permission from Todd 'Wingstrut' Comeau to make some new plane icons out of his excellent W.W.I aircraft profiles. Please, also check out the originals on his website.

Also I have put up a new screenshots page for 'Red Baron II/3D'. The screenshots shown are taken with kind permission of Kessler from the Promised Land.

Thank you, Wingstrut and Kessler!

Click to enlarge I posted some screenshots of the upcoming W.W.I flight simulation title 'Dawn of Aces III'. These are preliminary screenshot as the game is still in development. Check them out here.

I have added a downloads section where files for general use can be downloaded in the future. In the meanwhile the OpenGLide Glide wrapper can be downloaded there, which translates 3dfx Glide API calls to OpenGL calls on non 3dfx graphics cards.

Especially useful for Red Baron 3D players who do not have a 3dfx Voodoo card. It works pretty good on NVidia GeForce based cards but not so good on ATI based cards. Bear in mind that the wrapper is still in development and that there is still room for improvement.

FS-WWI - Click to enlarge The FS-WWI Team has released the new Plane Pack 3 (Testversion 3). It consists of the FS-SDOE Patch 1.5, FS-SDOE Patch, FS-WWI Nations Pack, a revised Full Somme Terrain Pack and the FS-WWI Plane Pack 3 (Testversion 3) with either 1024x1024, 512x512 or 256x256 textures.

You should read the installation instructions and follow them properly or you could run into troubles. You must install FS SDOE fresh and then apply the patches. Read the readme files contained in the downloads.

For downloading the files you can use the freshly revised resources page in the Open Plane W.W.I section (should be FS W.W.I section by now but I have yet to do new section graphics).

I have reworked the tutorials and resources pages for the Dawn Of Aces section and put them up. Besides I hope to bring more information about Dawn Of Aces III soon.

Today I have added the technically revised links and squadron pages for Dawn Of Aces. Some of the links aren't working anymore. I have to do a time consuming internet search for the new link locations first. If someone could point me to the right link locations I would be thankful for this.

Added new sections for the 'Target: Flanders' and the 'IL-2 W.W.I' flightsim projects. Little is known about these efforts but I will try and get more information. Progress is slow on the website as I have a job that takes up much time and a family that I am willing to spend much of my leisure time with voluntarily ;-)

Just hang on …

There is a W.W.I Project for the IL-2 Sturmovik W.W.II flightsimulation underway. It will cover the Eastern Front with their respective plane types on the German and the Russian side. Visit the IL-2 W.W.I Project Forum at to read more about the project and one thing … if you are a plane designer or modeler your help is needed.

Kessler has posted the great news that he is finished with his Promised Land All Seasons Superpatch for Red Baron 3D. Go grab it at his Promised Land Site or at alternate mirror sites.

Its size is about 50 MBytes. Incuded are new terrain files for spring/Summer, autumn and winter, new effects and objects, improved sky, new railroad skins and much more. Due to download-bandwidth problems there will be several mirror hosts.

Visit the SWWISA Forum for more details.

A couple of important things related to Red Baron 3D happened during the past few days.

First off, Flybert did a warpaints squad update for MMP. Go grab the files at

Second, Rebs_Rens did some intensive programming and brought up a secure server for Red Baron 3D. It is not finished and still in development but you can download it here. Read more about this server software in this thread over at the SWWISA Forum. Messages 1 to 75 are the interesting ones.

Third, there is an effort for an improved patch utility for Red Baron 3D. You can download version 1.04 of RBPatch here. Read more about this utility at

The Wings with Wires team released a statement where a release date of 4th quarter 2003 for their WWI flight simulation 'Birds of Prey' is expected.

Quote: "So our new time line has us shooting for a release in 4th quarter 2003. We really try to set a date that makes some sense, but this date is based on our having time to put in… and in this new plan we have assumed that we will have less time than we used to have, so this seems like a good date to start with. Waiting is hard… but I think we can make it more than just a passive waiting."

Welcome to 'Wings Of Honor'. The site just has reopened.

I made an agreement with John 'Jupes' Hansen to host Wings Of Honors here on my webserver. Thank you, John.

It will not be possible to restore the site for 100% but I will do my best. Not all sections are open yet. It is a huge site and I needs a lot of time, work and space. The Red Baron Ressources Section for example can not be restored in its old form. Besides I don't have the necessary webspace uploading would take forever as I have a phone line only, no cable or DSL. I will think about another solution.

I chose Delphi Forums as the Site Forum, but Delphi seems to be folding now. I will think about setting up another forum. But for the time being you have to stick to the Delphi Forum, sorry.

Anyways have fun …
