But some awards, like the Prussian PLM, had to be confirmed by the ruling monarch, and of course Kaiser Bill was no longer available after November 9. Bad luck if your application was still stuck in some bureaucrat's office on that date. smile

Yes, a lot of members stopped posting for a pilot who was dead and just carried on with the next guy. Then it is easy to see what happened. Lou, if you wish I can send you the excel spread sheet of ALL the captures I received. There is about 1120 of them! I normally sort the whole lot by capture date and then delete those of more than a month old. Then I remove the duplicates just keeping the latest ones for each pilot. One has to keep an eye out because one userid can have more than one pilot in the same month, normally with one dead one - but not always.

If any user wishes to get their own individual Excel sheet I can do that and put it on dropbox. Let me know if you want that.

Well done Gentleman!

And last but most certainly not least, posted below are the names of the many brave pilots who were either killed in action or are still missing and presumed dead. It is a sobering tally

(right-click on image and open in new window to view it full size)


This was a long, hard-fought campaign and it illustrated just how thin the odds were for the pilots and aircrews to survive the Great War in the Air. We should again offer our utmost respect to those who actually had to do it.

Now on to bigger and grander things!

Thank you for your hard work as the Gong Fairy of this DID campaign, Lou! The artwork is once again stellar. I'm sure we all greatly appreciate your efforts. The campaign wouldn't have been the same without your awards. smile

Now, when can we start the next one? biggrin

Wonderful! I have been waiting with eager anticipation for the final scores. Thankyou Lou and Jim for your work on the final scores.

And a round of applause for Olham for bring us this great campaign.

I always wanted to know what happened to Guenther Mahlow. Of course he must have survived, but where did fate take him?

Hasse, you aptly wrapped up our thanks to Lou. His contributions to this campaign truly added significant realism and immersion.

A personal thanks to you Lou, and I raise my glass to all who participated for all their contributions.

Well done!

Well, not to steal this thread, but one of Mahlow's relatives is interred at Roucourt in the soon to be release Roucourt Mod. If you look closely while flying the field, you may just find his headstone. biggrin It's the least I could do in payment for all the historical input Olham gave me as an aid to developing the aerodrome.

Cheers

Flying that low over Roucourt cemetery would probably make you another resident there!
Thank you, Maeran, and thank you Robert, for all the patience you had with me!

Jim - thanks a lot for the tireless collecting and posting of the result charts.
Without your contrbution it would have been too hard a calculation-job!

Great job, Lou - thank you for carrying this all into the finals; good job!

As for Hasse's request: feel free to create another DiD Campaign, gentlemen.

Lou, thank you not only for these wonderful gongs, but for your continuing support of WOFF and the WOFF community. Kudos, too, to Jim Attrill. The amount of attention his role demanded is not to be forgotten. Olham, thank you for all your work. Lou's recognition is well deserved and we all echo it, I'm sure.

I really loved this DiD campaign. Perhaps it was because it evolved into a real club of excellent storytellers who immersed themselves into their characters and into the period in a way that brought that long-lost generation and their world to life.

I for one would do anything it took (save computer skills for I have none) to start a new "storytellers' campaign." What ideas do the rest have? There is probably no need to change any of Olham's rules.

I'm willing to start a new DID any time. And I can think of only one change to the rules - being able to start as an officer for improved storytelling possibilities.

Here is a new URL to capture your flights. I presume you will start in August 1914 like last time, or maybe it would be better to start on today's date but in 1915 ie 9 Jan 1915. The aircraft are better in 1915 I reckon.

Hasse, my last pilot (Cairns) began as a sergeant in-game in accordance with the rules, but in my stories I wrote of him as a second lieutenant from the beginning. I kept writing of him as a 2LT until he was promoted Lt in the game. It got me out of the rut of writing another "working class boy gets a commission" story, and the longer period as a 2Lt was more accurate historically.

I used the same idea in writing of his squadron mates. The flight commanders were always Captains in my stories, regardless of their in-game rank. When the game named a new pilot as a sergeant, I checked their backgrounds (at least for HAs). If they were NCO pilots in real life, I wrote of them as sergeants, but if they were officers I wrote of them as second lieutenants. Most non-HA pilots were written of as 2Lts. I referred to them as sergeants only if the squadron historically had a number of NCO pilots.

Occasionally the game will appoint a Major. I would write of that pilot as a captain unless he was the historical Squadron Leader.

I took some other liberties in the stories. Occasionally I changed the birthplace of non-HA characters, since the in-game biographies for British pilots drastically under-represent the pilots from the Dominions. So I'd create the odd Canadian or Austrialian, and in one case a Newfoundlander.

Raine, I suppose that's a good solution to the "from rags to riches" storytelling problem. I usually fly for Germany, and historically they did have quite a few NCO pilots also in frontline units, unlike the British. But I don't want all of my pilots to go through the same routine of starting as an NCO and then suddenly getting a promotion to a "Temporary Gentleman". smile

Count me in for a February 1 start! I already have a couple of tentative ideas for my new pilot.

I'd start again but we already have a "centenury" campaign going.
I think we all gota sit down and perhaps agree to run just one for the "Whole" Communtiy.
I can't fly two campaigns and the nice little RIR one too.

For what it's worth, if another DID is going to be started, it would be a nice change of pace to start it as early as WOFF allows which, if memory serves, is very early 1915. Just my feelings on it.
