200 German aces ( including pilots with fewer than 5 victories, who are specially difficult to implement) already added ( or improved with new info), including biography (when missing), victory list (using Rick Duiven´s Datafiles, VanWyngarden and Henshaw books, ) and photographs from scanned books of my collection when lacking. Jastas 1, 2, 3, 4 ,5 , 8, 10, 11, 12, 15, 17, 18, 22, 26, 45 (and some others I may forget now...) fully done from 1914-1918. reading

Agreed. When it was mentioned “make a mod” I thought it was a joke.
But it’s really gonna happen. And incredibly cool at that.
As much as I want to throw this into my mods folder NOW I must say take your time and don’t burn-out prior to
completion. But thanks

There are 906 german pilots in the database (many of them without any victories though), so there is a LOT to be done yet.

ArisFuser, incredible work! I remember asking the devs about this a long time ago. It seemed an impossible task but for a handful of aces, but you are blitzing through them! Big thanks for all your hard work!

Work goes on smoothly, at this point, at least regarding german pilot database, things are really beginning to take shape. 350 completely new pilot Victory lists added, 200 new biographies and several photos. Shredward created a monster database with the love and dedication of a WWI passionate and the strictness of an historian but at this point I am afraid some data will be impossible to include in the mod, specially biographies. Even the tiniest piece of information about some pilots is impossible to find even for historians (sometimes is hard even for aces!). Anyway, I hope to have beta a mod * that ,hopefully, will increase the inmersion factor while keeping historical fidelity as high as possible in about a week.( yes, 7 days wink ) .

* This will be my own personal mod, that will include minor fixes by Shredward but will not be official in any way (not yet, at least, if ever), so it will not be endorsed or supported by OBD.

I can't wait to see the results. This will really up the immersion factor!

Now, when are you going to get to work on the English and the French, not to mention the Belgians, the Russians, the Austrian-Hungarians, the Italians, the Serbians, the.... dizzy

ArisFuser, a belated but sincere thank you! This is a wonderful addition. I'm curious whether, when the victory information is present, the WOFF campaign engine can show the correct current victory count for the current campaign date when you look in the duty room.

I have a copy of "Over the Trenches," which gives at least a brief bio of the 5+ victory RFC, RNAS, and RAF aces. PM me with names if you're missing some. My time is bit limited but I can help.

Yes, it will count correctly in respect to mission date.

Thanks for the help Raine. As Jara said, the campaign will show victory information for current date when you look in the Duty room, so it will update historically. Regarding ace biographies, at the moment, I have some valuable sources for pilots with 5 or more kills, the problem is for those that scored 1,2 , 3 or 4. I will try my best but limitations are obvious when looking for almost anonymous guys born 120 years ago.

Outstanding! Thank you Aris. Any chance to get this in a zip or rar format? I’m not too fond of the exe’s.
