Ok, i tought you guys in TFS run your own test by now, now when i know we are talking about my rcording i understand whats confusing you.
So you say you see airplane on my track hit that place and loss wing? thats me hiting a tree that i SEE on my very low, thats crash at the end of track you talk about, is that correct ? if you talk about that crash, i hit tree i see on veary low and thats why i crash a end, recording is from my PoV and im using veary low. You see how he loses wings when he trys to pass place i pased with no problems before, thats the place where there is 3-5 trees i dont see but he see on veary high.

Look at point of recording where i start to shoot at ground, im shooting at place where is planty of trees on veary high, pointing that place to Ripgrunwald, and i pass that place with no problem even though Ripgrunwald who is hosting server and has trees on veary high see trees there and colids with them, but i can pass trough that with no problems on veary low forrest. I try to pass that place again but i was not alighnd correctly, and i abort and do third pass from south from other direction at that cross section of 3 hedg lines, and then on end of flight i hit a tree that i see (from hedg line on picture you posted) and lose wing only then, as i hit a tree i see on veary low, its not invisable tree that got me there.

I uploaded pictures so its easyer to understand what you se in recording:

This is place where is many trees on veary high and i pass with no problems on veary low:
Image

on this picture you see that Ripgrunwald loss wings when he pass same place, hes on veary high forrest.
Image

on this pic i pass that place again from south, planty trees in that place when you fly on veary high but i pass ok as im on veary low and dont see them, and no invisable tree get my wing:
Image

Now this is from same recording, i just befor runing recording put forest on veary high and restarted game, so you see in recording what trees im passing with no problem, what trees Ripgrunwald see me passing and he cant (same area from first picture):
Me shooting at that area before i pass troug trees
Image
Image

Me exactly in trees that cut ripgrunwald
Image

me pasing them with no loss wings:
Image

Rip try to do same, he has veary high in game on time of recording, and you see he crashed.
Image

Also neer end before i crash you se me also pass this line of trees with no problem:
Image

So in total on that replay you see me flying on veary low forrest, on server that has forrest at veary high, passing trough trees 3 times, and ripgrunwald who has forrest at veary high cant pass trees i pass with no problem, and on end i dont loss wing from invisable tree.

UPDATE 8th JAN


Despite the Team Fusion hotfix for the netcode, there remains an underlying issue as far as I can see with players reporting lag and banding and fps issues on both ATAG and ACG in anything from 40+ players. This is obviously no good for us.

While the SOW code has been successfully migrated and tested there remain significant issues that haven't been addressed in the Blitz edition and nor has a full change log been forthcoming.

Most worryingly player numbers are much lower than competitor games despite the new release and the absolute requirement to use steam opposed to both BoX and DCS also being standalone products.

Storm of War will therefore be sticking to our original decision and will not be running a Cliffs of Dover Blitz server and campaign. (We will of course continue to keep up with any developments from Team Fusion and should the situation change we will rethink.)

In the meantime Storm of War are looking into running some events in DCS, in both the Korean and WW2 eras. Further info on these should be forthcoming in the next few weeks but it's likely they will not occur until after the "merge" is finally released.

Shame, but not a surprise. I look forward to hearing more about the DCS events!

Bad news.
But if sow can bring a good number of people over DCS ww2 and if ED can put out a decent DM I could take a look at that.

Well, Rob from 71st_AH has done a large amount of work on his 1955 server already and Phil and Dietrich are keen on the WW2 stuff. I'm hopeful we might be able to bring a few goodies to the table now I've got working a database connection and some basic stats type stuff and we already have done some work on slot reservations which should allow reserved Sqn aircraft etc.

It will take some time of course and it won't be a direct port of the concepts we are familiar with but the plan is to have some one off organised events like in the early days of SoW to get us going.

Some, not all, of the reasons
1. BoX do not allow everyone to have a server yet - 1C have specific rules/requirements for server operators
2. BoX mission editor is frustrating/ limiting
3. BoX does not talk to external databases like CloD/ DCS can
4. SoW is interested in other stuff besides just WW2 - although we still love WW2 flying
