I have modified this first post to attach my Historical Victory mod versions here.

Version 1.2 is ready. (May 21, 2018)


Zipped, non executable version


This modification adds almost all French, American and german aces victory information files, short biographies and photos that are missing in WOFF database. All german, American and French aces in the game have their proper scores and they will update historically as you fly with them. No more “N/A” in the Duty Room. The mod will be updated periodically as I can get my hands on new information sources. This version focuses on pilots with 5 or more victories, although many non aces have been added too, in order to have all squadrons update historically, when possible. Many British, Australian, South African,...etc pilots have been added too.
I feel it will improve the sense of immersion and historical authenticity of WOFF.


Thanks to Shredward for all the help and corrections.

Enjoy, and post your impressions, or bugs you may notice in this thread.

Thanks,
Aris.

Great idea, ArisFuser! I was thinking about the same but I do not have sufficient access to historical data and enough time to implement it into WOFF. But you can freely add this data to WOFF and release it publicly as a mod (if you are so kind, of course).

Kills file description:
Quote
22 - number of records (kills)
9 - number of lines per record (do not change, it mut be always 9)
AlexanderKill01 - pilot name and kill number
02 - day of kill
06 - month of kill
1917 - year of kill
C - type of enemy plane shot down (here type "C"), enemy aircraft,unit and pilot name, if known
NA - unknown (let it reads NA)
OOC St Julien 10N Tripe N5487 - note - location of kill, unit and piloted plane at the time of kill

EOR - EOR - end of record - it must be at the end of each kill record
AlexanderKill02
04
06
1917
Albatros DIII
NA
OOC NE Ypres 10N Tripe N5487

EOR


Do not forget to save any new kills file as "PilotsnameKill.txt" put link to it into related Aces file.
If you have any question or experiece any difficulties, let me know it. I would like to see those additions in WOFF.

It´s time consuming but it ´s worth it. Seeing your squad mates victories update historically adds to the realism and inmersion I think.

Will be anxiously awaiting the mod for all 2000+ Aces in the game.
Next weekend?

Nice work gentlemen, this adds a lot more realism in you squadron.
It’s no fun to see an historical ace at the bottom of the leaderboard If he already has confirmed kills to his name.

Lol, next weekend sounds like a too optimistic timeline, 3 weeks is definitely more realistic wink. For a single person, not retired, this could take a lot of time!

And that's why every pilot ever does not have the stacks of detail in there - it will take a lot of work and time to fill those all in for all pilots still needing it. But go for it and we can one day incorporate it maybe wink

Super Aris. I won't mention how many squadrons are left but Shred did many of the Aces in various places so should be easier wink

Updating the kill files, and the pilot bios and pics, is my next project
Cheers

We will remember them.

One hundred new aces already done. This is one crazy task to do for sure! Jasta 4, 5, 6, 10,11, 18 and RFC 1, 46, 57, RNAS 1 fully modded. smile At this rate I hope to release a first preliminary Mod in about two weeks and keep on adding "packs" time permitting.

DiD campaign pilot Aldi Schwarzkopf from Jasta 18 salutes you on this initiative. Way to go! Hals und Beinbruch!

Would you, pls, correct also ZanderKill.txt file? The "Null" in the date causes problem in WOFF:
