We I'm just thinking, but when we release we are gonna have the thousands of people who will hear about it jump online, all within possibly a few hours, it's likely that we will outclass most real games.

So, if you are starting your clan/squad, you better grab your buddies and start it, because your gonna have tons of oppisition. :D

Ok shall we start one now then, Any web site designer out there for a squadron or wing roster.
If the BRL guys dont mine we could be their offical online squadron with honourally positions for all Devs maybe ?

On the note of a ladder that would really rock.

We need a CAG for starters and and 36 fighters '3 squads worth' and crew cheif :)
Title: Online Viper Squadron or Wing
Post by: slslookout on August 09, 2006, 04:56:25 PM

lol well i'll take the job to you find someone better or i get killed lol

No no MAIA right maybe we should have a poll for CAG then get a few members and dish out flight leaders when we get enough pilots.
We're need a website unless the Blr crew have got something dream up they seem to be ball all the time : )

So Call the ball pilots, what do you all want.

ill hold off on joining anyone until the demo comes out. for a few reasons:

1.i might have my own squadron (FFF name could actually be a possiblity) with some local friends.

2.i dont even know how good i am with my flightstick, i havent used it since... '01. and i might buy the x52

3.i want to fly with the people i join up with before i join up with them. i want to see the teamwork before i join the team.
Title: Online Viper Squadron or Wing

I'm with Sir Monster on this one, for the above reasons... plus, I don't know about how commitable I'd be for regular flights.

anyone got crimson skies for PC? we could all try and everyone right now get teamspeak so we can ll talk. if no one has crimson skies combat flight simulator will do.
Title: Online Viper Squadron or Wing
Post by: David Pym on August 10, 2006, 04:31:29 PM
Ts would be a good idea but no rush, even if we just practice team play on game like counterstrike.
Lets just get a forum up and website looking good then when demo hits we can sort our flights out.
Lookout lets have a page for Mark II and IIV and battlestar with info and tech readouts
http://www.battlestarwiki.org/wiki/Viper_Mark_II get all info off there.

Once the forum up each pilot can give a quick bio and bio avtar for web site profile on pilots and such.
(http://www.battlestarwiki.org/en/images/thumb/8/8c/Bsg-viper-1.jpg/200px-Bsg-viper-1.jpg)

Also Dog Squadron i dont like it any other ideas ? like White Knights, Tigers, Red Leo's,  Flying Cougars, Spitting Vipers just throw some ideas out there guys throw some back.

ps. i do wish we get a few Devs in squadron :)
Title: Online Viper Squadron or Wing
Post by: David Pym on August 10, 2006, 05:49:06 PM
Ok White Knights is great name if we use it this what our arm patch would look like.

I wouldn't be so hasty to discard the option of having a forum hosted by the same group that hosts the mod dev boards... this way you could "keep it in the family", as it were.
Title: Online Viper Squadron or Wing
Post by: Draco429 on August 10, 2006, 07:01:41 PM
True enough, sls. This would be MUCH better suited to a Viper squad than my site... no one's heard of StellarES.com, but GameWarden's a pretty well known site in the game community. They'd be bound to find the squad here, and I'm sure MatthewPapa could set you up a forum. No one would need to reregister, either...
Title: Online Viper Squadron or Wing
Post by: David Pym on August 10, 2006, 07:09:00 PM
i would indeed rather be a sister to Game Warden.
Your hard work Lookout means alot to me and the Squadron.

On different matter MatthewPapa want join up :)

Post by: slslookout on August 10, 2006, 07:13:54 PM
well if you guys could set up the get the page ill put in all the pictures and rosters where you want me to. I usually just use freewebs as storage and a basic concept.
Title: Online Viper Squadron or Wing
Post by: frost on August 10, 2006, 07:17:16 PM
i might have to take you up on that offer, matt.

still, i'd want my wing to grow a bit before requesting webspace... right now we're about four pilots strong--but the cool thing is that they're all local friends (until summer ends and we split and head for college). =[

still, the 88th Arctic Wolves are coming for you.

For all that want space, forum and/or web, PM me with your squadron name and your desired ftp login info (username and password) and I will get you set up.

As far as forums go, I will probably just make a subforum group in these existing forums for you to use. You will be able to customize your forum style etc later once we get it all set up.

better change my rank to captain then lol,


I think the Wing Commander's rank should be at least Colonel if not a Commander for a few reasons
1) 1st the show seems to indicate (at least to me) that you go from a Viper squadron command to a position of a Battlestar XO or Commander

2)Apollo was still the CAG after being promoted to Major

3)RDM has seems to try to tie the BSG as close as possible to a CVN, on a CVN the CAG is a Captain just like the ship's commander. The difference is they had different career tracks, one chose to go become a ship handler (the carrier's CO) after a tour as a squadron skipper, the other (the CAG) chose to stay with the air wing.

Quote from: David Pym

So far (and I could be incorrect) I don't think I've heard them refer to squdrons or flights by color, but I know they did in the original series. I don't think those are the names of the squadrons eitherway. I think they are just radio callsigns, so the squadrons still have thier nickname (example Black Knights) but are called by colors while inflight to more easily differentiate flights, or in case a squadron is broken up into multiple flights; the Brits do this with thier squadrons. So if you have the Black Knights, but have 1 flight in one place and two flight in another, and two flight from another squadron out there too, you make it easier by calling them Red, Gold and Green flights.
I hope that made sense.

we should have all the hosted wings under game warden be a part of a battlestar!

for example: the white knights, the arctic wolves, etc. etc. are all squadrons serving under battlestar gamewardenica. :p
