Storm of War server - il2 Cliffs of dover ..... not dead yet and getting better.
I decided to post this message for those Warbird sim flyers who still fly il2 cliffs of dover.
Moreover, if there are a few flyers who need an excuse to return to the sim or new flyers who maybe passed over the title, perhaps SoW has something that may be attractive to you.
I would like to draw attention to the work 92 "East India" Squadron has undertaken with the Storm of War server.
92 Sqn Reddog is the coding wizard responsible for much of the features and functionality listed below.
This is a prepared note from one of the main folks behind the new offering, 92 Sqn. Philstyle.
" ....... Over the past 4 months the Storm of War server and website have undergone a number of important changes.
We are now ready to open the server back up to the Cliffs of Dover community. Firstly, please note that we have a new website and forums here; www.stormofwar.org The old website is now going to be re-directed to the new URL. The server itself has undergone a large number of important changes too, including;
Improved Player Stats, including "pilot career" tracking
Improved Bomber Stats
Squadron v Squadron stats
New realism features and target types within the missions
Downloadable / printable mission pdf briefing files for all Missions with target photos and maps
Player controlled mission rotation
New RADAR and aircraft tracking systems (both in-game and on the website)
Friendly aircraft tracking system to assist bomber/fighter escorting
Missions that provide safe spawns for Bomber pilots
Luftwaffe Directional Beacons
AI aircraft with scaling features
To explain most of the changes we have made, please watch these two YouTube videos .

Video two : http://youtu.be/WjvKC2SaGlw
We welcome all Cliffs of Dover players to the server and the new website, particularly those players who are members of online Squadrons. We would also love to welcome back players who have not played Cliffs of Dover for a while, and who might be looking for something new in the multi-player environment. A new campaign is also being planned. More news on this will follow in time. Salute, Storm of War .
Hope to see you online. Everyone is welcome ......."If it's ain't broken, break it and then fix it !
