Wow. How about the "WOFF: Well, That Escalated Quickly" Edition.

Here’s another take on the whole naming thing.

Originally our beloved sim was simply called “Over Flanders Fields”. There were numerous tweaks and patches, but it remained OFF until the first major upgrade, “Between Heaven and Hell”. It was then referred to as OFF BHaH, or BHaH for short, (at least by us here in the community), throughout the next batch of tweaks and upgrades. Then came the massive rework that was eventually released as “WINGS: Over Flanders Fields”, and notice the colon as “WINGS” was still considered another version of OFF, in much the same way that BHaH was. Said colon appears to have been dropped from the naming even though “Over Flanders Fields” is still the official product name, at least according to the website address.
Now then, what with the various “Editions” that followed, “WINGS” took on more the aspect of a series name rather than just another rework or upgrade name. So, with all this in mind, and given the massive rework we are again about to experience, perhaps it is time for an entirely new series name. Consider the following:

HEROES: Over Flanders Fields
BATTLESKIES: Over Flanders Fields
WAR CLOUDS: Over Flanders Fields
SKY FIGHTERS: Over Flanders Fields
WINGED WARFARE: Over Flanders Fields
WINGED WARRIORS: Over Flanders Fields
SKY WAR: Over Flanders Fields
THE GREAT AIR WAR: Over Flanders Fields

etc, etc, etc, ad infinitum

Once you’ve landed, (pun intended), on the new series name you can then add the new “Editions” as they are developed, just as you did with “WINGS”.

Just a thought.

How about “Winged Victory”?


In homage to the best novel about air fighting in the Great War, bar none. If you haven’t read it, I very strongly recommend it. Indeed, so did TE Lawrence (“of Arabia”). A semi-autographical account of a Camel pilot in 1918, it vividly describes both life on the ground and action in the air, while dispelling any notions that war is fun without being any sort of pacifist propaganda.

Author Victor Yeates contracted “Flying Sickness D” (TB) during his service, and died in his thirties, so he wrote the book on borrowed time.

I agree Mike, Yeates' masterpiece stands as one of the best of the best of the contemporary WWI works. An absolute "must read". And I happen to own a lovely 1934 1st US edition of it. smile

Yes but what about the German Airforce ? By the way, he had the idea to namie his novel "Wingless Victor" ,his first name being Victor, but the editor did not find that very enthousiastic !

If they really want people to buy it they could just call it the "WOFF: No More Fences" Edition...

And a good one at that. It also fits with OBD web site URL too.

How about:

Dawn: Over Flanders Fields
Battle: Over Flanders Fields
War: Over Flanders Fields
Scourge: Over Flanders Fields
Weapons: Over Flanders Fields
Warriors: Over Flanders Fields

OK just to steer it, we will keep Wings:Over Flanders Fields as is, so WOFF: xxxx is the best format for now.

Thanks for the great thoughts all. There are a couple in here that firmly on the good potential list smile but keep them coming if you can.

@Wodin, I think this is the spirit of what we need: Edition names. You've created my favorite so far:

WOFF: Maxim Edition



Thanks:)

WOFF: The "Will I Have to Upgrade My PC Again?" Edition

I've lost count...I think I've upgraded 4 times since Phase 2 to keep current with WOFF.

Keep up the amazing work!

I feel like I remember that you had to have someone make you a copy to get in on Phase 2, and I was going to do that but then Phase 3 was about to come out as a retail product, so I just waited for that. Is that about right? (The way the phases worked, I am aware that no one will remember my internal thought process at this remote distance...) This is where someone should throw up a Phase 2 screenshot to remind us of how far we have come...
