I can truly empathize about the rest. I've been a part of SubSim's '100 Years Ago Today' project since the beginning, which is what prompted me to buy these books in the first place. I've been chronicling both the aviation and the u-boats. With "Bloody April" last year I found myself having to drop the u-boats. These days just logging the air battles is taking up to six hours of almost every day. I won't see the end of that until November, and to be honest I'm looking forward to it. Enjoy your rest.

I am to release version 1.2 next week (or the next one). I will try to include all french aces for this version. Hundreds of french aces!

Wow. Allow me to fawn at your feet and say you’re “awesome” again.

Version 1.2 is nearly done, I already modded 1500 files, yes 1500 ...There are like a gazillion of French aces with 5 or 6 victories and biographies need to be translated from french to english so I will delay this until next week. After this release, Commonwealth aces will be added and the final version will be done, then some holidays in sunny Spain...

Aris, thank you for this monumental effort. I owe you a beer.

The connecting rod out of my brain, my brain,

I've finally been able to start playing WOFF, and being pedantic I started as early as it would let me, which so far was March 20, 1915. Now, looking at my squadron list (MS 3), I begin to see what you've all been talking about. My Escadrille shows two aces on the roles, at a period before there was one ace anywhere in the world! Does the game auto-generate "previous kills" for the pilots it creates? If so, I'd love to see that part go away.

My first post, just two above this one, shows me offering to help and saying I have the two day-by-day books, for the French and Germans. Now that I've sat and read the thread in its entirety I see that just a couple of posts above mine Shredward says he already has those, and has been sorting and comparing information. I feel a little silly now, but I'm still willing to help any way I can. This looks like quite the project, and now I understand what's going on I want to see how it all turns out. And I'd like to be a part of it.

Patiently waiting...

I downloaded the file but could not unzip it (7-zip says there is a problem with the file).

The download and zip worked just fine for me a couple of minutes ago.

Wow! What a piece of work. Unzipped fine for me and seems to be causing no problems.

I'm flying in Jasta 8 in August 1917 and Gottsch, who had one victory, shot up to 14 and now is right on my heels!

Oh! And the colorized head shots are a very nice touch.

Kudos!

I have been out for the last two weeks so work on this mod has been slow. So far Britain aces are pending (of which I have already added more than a hundred) but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Once finished I will post the final version here. Just posting here for whoever may be interested.

This newbie is also interested. For several years over the past decade I worked on a similar project for Silent Hunter III involving historical names for ships sunk. I've slacked off in the past few years, but with almost thirteen thousand ship names I feel somewhat proud. I've played 3D airwar games with models for several decades now, but since Red Baron I haven't played a computer WW1 sim. WOFF has me very excited and this super mod is such a great concept. I'm glad to see someone actually doing this.
