Have we lost our momentum on the way to change? Having flown our MP trial flight last week I think its time to outline our next steps.
As I see it we have yet to verify a stable server with enough bandwidth to carry 16-20 players, there are 4 possibilities at this time: 1.Tiags server, 2.Dmans server 3.Wolfman has a lot of bandwidth that is a possibility and all these failing setting up a dedicated server (like AMVIs, admit I dont know what this entails).
Tiag has set up a trial flight Sunday (see ATO) and Dmans tried once, please mate set up another try. Wolfman we can try yours too. Only problem is you need multiplayers to test a multiplayer server (alas no short cuts!!) so please Gents lets have some cooperation it shouldnt take to long and we need to know were we stand.
Of course there is still the basical question if we believe BMS to be our best choice to move forward, my personal opinion, having logged a few hours on BMS (and on A10) is that BMS is the best choice at hand, not flawless, with quite a bit of developing yet to be done but certainly a step up from AF. Of course we could wait for a new multirole AC sim to come out or go to A10 or any other AC sim for that matter, but being F16 jockeys by preferrance I think BMS is our best bet at this time. Talking about jockeys bets and steeds, I will now "hedge my bets" by saying :the difference between AF and BMS is not so big as to make it impossible to fall back on AF if for some reason BMS should flop, but big enough to make going to BMS a big (and much needed) step forward.
If we can solve the server I think, next step would be to make a decision to "take the plunge" and immediatly fly Sundays in BMS reinstate Thursday Campaigns (BMS) make the necessary changes in IQT and start enrolling new pilots. There is a surge in interest as can be seen on the BMS forum and the 185th should be an attractive option for any new pilot. By the way cheers to Griffin and Lumper for seeing that we are still on the list.
Finally, no intention of stepping on toes, am afraid that even in BMS writing TEs wont be my cup of tea (to put it mildly) so will just have to live with my guilty concience and try and contribute to the squad in other ways." F4ever"( liked from the BMS forum)
Cheers gentlemen of the 185th, Mango

@Mango

We are already working towards the next BMS TE. I already wrote two more TEs (just need to finish the briefings). Vosene and FLs were already contacted and we are now setting a new date: 30th October or 6th November. I believe Vosene will announce that in the next few days.

Just to return to topic - I think I stopped active flying with 185th in 2005/6 ish; the main reason being that unforunately a lot of other things were needing more attention and online flying was the first to go. About this time I had a change in career and an addition to the family - so a lot going on!!

However the urge to fly again online is still there hence the odd visit to the 185th to see whats brewing. Flying online with other live flyers is a tremendous rush especially in the heat of the battle - drew a few comments from the other half whos sat in the other room watching TV!!

For me giving up 185th was due to RL commitments and not lack of interest, certainly the comeraderie on the squadron was next to none, boosted by the physical meets.

Maybe the interest in flight sims is declining?

Anyways to you all, keep it up, the 185th is a great online community.

Regards

Peebs
