While waiting to enlist my pilot (damn weather!) I'd like to add my opinion to this discussion about awards. WOFF already has a pretty decent awards system, so I'd love to see this kept as simple as possible in DiD. IMO, there's no need to make it any more complicated than the nice-looking DiD medals Lou has made and which will be awarded for hours flown. The rest of the awards should come from WOFF.

If you wanted to make it completely historical, the awards system of the German Empire alone would cause quite a headache for anybody trying to model it as realistically as possible.

Let's keep it simple!
