The War Effort needs You!

During times of war the people unite and make sacrifices so that the men on the front lines doing the fighting have the materials they need to win! Gentlemen, I tell you that War has been Declared on WWI Flight Sims. In the past few years, they have been dropping like flies until now only one is left standing that is still in active development.

I tell you that all it will take for the likes of Battlefield 1 to sweep away the last vestiges of true WWI Air Combat simulation is for Good Men to stand idle! This, I cannot do!

Therefore, I declare from this day forward that I am sacrificing one pizza a month ($15) to keep OBD in the fight against the travesty that is bubble gum chewing first person shooters thinly disguised as WWI combat experiences. I expect no tangible rewards for my sacrifice to the War Effort. My reward will be the opportunity to buy more add-ons as they become available. Gentlemen, not everyone can contribute in the same way or in the same amounts to the War Effort. $10, even $5 per month adds up over time. So too does going to other forums and spreading the word about Wings Over Flanders Fields Ultimate Edition. Posting and sharing screenshots and videos in appropriate threads outside of the Official WOFF Forums is another noble undertaking. Let not apathy be the reason Battlefield 1 thrives while true WWI Air Combat simulation suffers.

Act Now before Trumpets Fade!

As posted earlier on another thread:
"Well whilst we are on our knees financially at the moment - hang in there - as we are actively trying to sort that out and thus to continue working on what to us is a labour of love and passion.

So hopefully... on to the next 10 years of OBD combat flight sim production!

Realistic WWI flight sims are a very niche market. In fact, they are a small niche market within the already small niche market of flight sims in general. Those "flying games" that are successful these days are mostly arcade style combat such as War Thunder.

OBD is still developing WOFF out of passion and they have more plans for the future but some additional $$$ never hurts. WOFF UE is already the most content rich WWI flight sim ever produced but there are many of us who would like to be certain that whatever other ideas, planes, features, content or improvements that OBD has in mind will be certain to make it to market. We might be a small player base but we are nearly as passionate about WOFF as the developers.

Well Hellshade I just donated yesterday but, after that clarion call to action, I see my country...err...community needs me. How can I refuse?

Was going to match you for two months of pizza but, as bonus points for using the Lord Kitchener poster, I will make it 3 months worth.

Lemme fire up the WOFF machine and head over to PayPal. As WOFF is my only vice I can indulge. And maybe it will bring me some luck in the air today. Weather here is horrible - perfect for WOFF'ing!
S! to all that contribute.

Why fairly close to you sir.
And horrible may be relative. It was beautiful yesterday. Windy and cold now.
Besides, I don't need much of an excuse to get some WOFF in.

Good man Robert.
Who's next? And yes all you lurkers here are being put on the spot.
Every little bit helps. You don't have to be rich to help out.
Every dollar adds up.

WOFF is the simulation I have waited most of my life for.

It is worth a a lot more to me than what the sale price cost.

I donated once in the past, but this thread is a good reminder that I need to do so again. Thanks for the kick in the ass smile

Done and Done. A recurring monthly contribution to help keep the boys in the air... No one will accuse me of shirking on the home front and dallying with our brave airmen's women!!!
