The War Effort Needs You! Donate to keep our men fighting on!

The War Effort Needs You! Donate to keep our men fighting on! - 11/19/16 01:54 PM

The War Effort needs You!

During times of war the people unite and make sacrifices so that the men on the front lines doing the fighting have the materials they need to win! Gentlemen, I tell you that War has been Declared on WWI Flight Sims. In the past few years, they have been dropping like flies until now only one is left standing that is still in active development.

I tell you that all it will take for the likes of Battlefield 1 to sweep away the last vestiges of true WWI Air Combat simulation is for Good Men to stand idle! This, I cannot do!

Therefore, I declare from this day forward that I am sacrificing one pizza a month ($15) to keep OBD in the fight against the travesty that is bubble gum chewing first person shooters thinly disguised as WWI combat experiences. I expect no tangible rewards for my sacrifice to the War Effort. My reward will be the opportunity to buy more add-ons as they become available. Gentlemen, not everyone can contribute in the same way or in the same amounts to the War Effort. $10, even $5 per month adds up over time. So too does going to other forums and spreading the word about Wings Over Flanders Fields Ultimate Edition. Posting and sharing screenshots and videos in appropriate threads outside of the Official WOFF Forums is another noble undertaking. Let not apathy be the reason Battlefield 1 thrives while true WWI Air Combat simulation suffers.

Act Now before Trumpets Fade!

As posted earlier on another thread:
"Well whilst we are on our knees financially at the moment - hang in there - as we are actively trying to sort that out and thus to continue working on what to us is a labour of love and passion.

So hopefully... on to the next 10 years of OBD combat flight sim production!

Realistic WWI flight sims are a very niche market. In fact, they are a small niche market within the already small niche market of flight sims in general. Those "flying games" that are successful these days are mostly arcade style combat such as War Thunder.

OBD is still developing WOFF out of passion and they have more plans for the future but some additional $$$ never hurts. WOFF UE is already the most content rich WWI flight sim ever produced but there are many of us who would like to be certain that whatever other ideas, planes, features, content or improvements that OBD has in mind will be certain to make it to market. We might be a small player base but we are nearly as passionate about WOFF as the developers.

Well Hellshade I just donated yesterday but, after that clarion call to action, I see my country...err...community needs me. How can I refuse?

Was going to match you for two months of pizza but, as bonus points for using the Lord Kitchener poster, I will make it 3 months worth.

Lemme fire up the WOFF machine and head over to PayPal. As WOFF is my only vice I can indulge. And maybe it will bring me some luck in the air today. Weather here is horrible - perfect for WOFF'ing!
S! to all that contribute.

WOFF is the simulation I have waited most of my life for.

It is worth a a lot more to me than what the sale price cost.

I donated once in the past, but this thread is a good reminder that I need to do so again. Thanks for the kick in the ass smile

That will be an OBD call.

In the meantime who here has been playing, and enjoying mightily, this sim and has not stepped forward?
Think I see a couple of you in the shadows back there. Hey! Stop slacking.

I always need another pizza, despite my trouser size. But I give up at least one pizza a month because I need my WOFF UE + future Add-ons fix even more, my good sir. biggrin

That aside, the passion and generosity of our community never ceases to impress me. Whenever I come here, I know I am surrounded by true gentlemen dressed in rascals clothing and for that, I am very thankful. I would have it no other way.

Thanks to all who have already contributed to the War Effort (in many ways) and thanks to those who are soon to do so. Donating now, one time or monthly, doesn't just support OBD. It supports this community and ultimately ourselves.

One of the most important keys to Joy in Life is recognizing a rare and wonderful thing while you still have it and then doing what you can to make sure that it doesn't go away, for once it is gone it does not come back.

Sometimes that support means a little extra effort or a little extra creativity. Those who are wise enough to recognize the source of their rare joys and support it will get the most out of them for the longest possible time. Gentlemen, let us continue to be that kind of a community. Thank you.

Such donations have already happened several times but they generally go to longtime WOFFers who have supported OBD with their own purchases over the past few years. If you are getting into WOFF for the first time, there's no better time than the present with WOFF UE containing all previous WOFF 1,2 & 3 Expansions plus all of the Add-ons, plus new features, planes as well as visual, audio and performance improvements. Considering all that you get, it's well worth the asking price. I recommend saving up for a couple of paychecks to get started.

Re: The War Effort Needs You! Donate to keep our men fighting on! - 11/21/16 08:55 PM

When I buy the WOFF UE "DVD Disk" I will spend $100 and you keep the change.

I gave $100 a while back as a donation to keep the home fires burning.

Count on me to do this once a year or so ( more often now as it looks like you "worker bees" need to stoke
the stove as winter gets close!

With out that disk I am a dead duck stuck with WOFF 2 ( still one heck of a flight sim ).

Great news OBD congratulations it is a well deserved development. You have been a premier sim developer with few peers in my book. You have always back your sim with timely upgrades and patches. You have always offered great support, I know this Sponsor is getting a well developed team and I hope we see many great things from OBD.

Silly me - I was looking on the forum not on the WOFF site rolleyes

Pitched in for 20 bucks a month

Like I said on another thread last week
Flight sims are now a real niche
WW1 flight sims a niche within a niche

If we really want this we need to help keep it going - I really do not think there is anyone else out there willing or able to do it (especially not up to the massively high standards the Devs have set already)

As we don't know what that project is, I would be grateful if someone could confirm this point.

I don't know if it's possible to separate the two, Trooper. They need to stay in business in order to keep developing for WOFF and they have said future Add-on packs are in the plans for UE. (I am hoping for a Snoopy vs the Red Baron edition, but it might be tough for them to get the licensing on that.) At any rate, I think the best I can offer as a pure outsider is that the money is going to keep their doors open so they can indeed continue to produce UE content.

I'm sorry to sound like a damp squib at this point, but the donation button is on the WoFF site, so I'm assuming all donations will go to WoFF.

I have bought all the OFF and WOFF products and will continue to buy anything else connected with the UE etc...

The devs have stated they intend to continue developing Add-on content for UE. Your dollars will help make that happen, sir.

Re: The War Effort Needs You! Donate to keep our men fighting on! - 11/22/16 09:34 PM

WOFFUE will continue and addon packs are in the pipeline.

We have been working on our new project at the same time as WOFF for a year now.

Alas WOFFUE income even with donations cannot keep us afloat and we cannot develop another project - that we hope will keep us afloat -without income.

We do need to eat and live.

Hi gaw1, That is the correct place to donate - I had the same question on that email address the first time I donated also.

I miss read your first post. As JJJ65 below states and I stated in my original post the donate button is on the overflandersfields home page.
If you want to donate to OBD use that link and not the link in this forum.
Should say you are donating to lemon@...... .com and not Donate to SimHQ, LLC

Thx Stache....so SimHQ donations and lemon@over...... donations wind up in the same place? That's fine......thought OK, years of SimHQ forum checking for WOFF stuff......maybe I gave worthy folks a small shot in the arm. If my donation serves both purposes....so much the better. Cheers

I think the SimHQ donation is exactly what it reads: donation to SimHQ forum. If you wish to donate OBD, go to their home page at http://www.overflandersfields.com/index.html and use "Donate" button there.

gaw1 that's very generous of you. However on your question... No, donating to SimHQ is exactly that - it goes only to SimHQ - we won't see that. So you need to use the paypal button on OUR web page on www.overflandersfields.com and it goes to lemon@...

(Stache I will edit your message above to remove the email address as spammers scan forums for emails).

Can you contact SIMHQ and tell them you sent it to the wrong one please?

Many thanks.

I bought another WOFF UE disc even though I already have it. Does that count? lol Actually, I'm going to build a new rig so I can play at 'max' settings so getting a new WOFF disc to go with it.

Just sent mine in. Thanks for all the work you guys do, OBD.

One of my credit cards was compromised and apparently it messed up my monthly donations of $15.00. They are back on-line again, perhaps providing 1 pizza or 6 pack of beer per month to a starving or thirsty Dev. biggrin

Bring us Wings Over the Reich and if possible, bring the advances made in WOTR back to WOFF UE!

Oh yes, and Merry Christmas to everyone - developers, modders and pilots alike.

Another year has rolled around - made my $100 donation to OBD.
Hope any of you that are able, will also.

Had a great year experiencing and flying WOFF UE.
And WOTR has been a blast, really liking where it is going.

salute to OBD, Mark Fairchild, Matt Milne, the WOFF modders and supporters for a truly enjoyable product.

The link to donate is near the bottom of the WOFF home page at: http://www.overflandersfields.com/index.html
or WOTR Home page at: http://www.wingsoverthereich.com/

(Warning: if you donate in the forum link on the right side here, you are donating to SimHQ - Still not a bad thing, but not OBD.)

Well done, sir! I have continued to donate $15 a month to the war effort. Thanks to everyone who helped make WOFF UE what it is today and that continues improving it for tomorrow.
