Unofficial WOFF 2020 Name Suggestions [NOW OFFICIAL! - Pol]

Unofficial WOFF 2020 Name Suggestions [NOW OFFICIAL! - Pol] - 11/09/20 06:28 PM

This post isn't anything official. I just don't want to flood / hijack the WOFF 2020 dev update thread with a bunch of name suggestions, but until the devs do put up an official poll or whatever for a name, I figured we could blow off some steam by posting name ideas here. If you have some new WOFF edition naming ideas, let's hear them. As good a way as any to pass the time until it releases.

I'm kind of partial to WOFF: Winds of War because with all the updates, additions and improvements, it seems like WOFF:WoW would be an appropriate name. wink

A fine idea Hellshade, but you may have already nailed it with WOFF:WoW! smile

None-the-less, here we go with a few more.

WOFF: A Gathering of Eagles

WOFF: The Great Air War

WOFF: Tumult In The Sky

WOFF: The Airmen's War

WOFF: The Sky Their Battlefield

Oh yes, to be sure Hellshade, we break nice things, or at least severely bend them.. But to the new WOFF release copies and whatever they're titled, I must add: They're real, and they're spectacular.

I wonder if WoW would cause confusion with the old Nexus game "Wings of War" (the original name for Ares Games: Wings of Glory).

Re: Unofficial WOFF 2020 Name Suggestions - 11/10/20 09:28 AM

Thanks Todd. Already some good ones here. OK let's make it official, post your name suggestions for the next iteration of WOFF here in the thread, and if we choose one for the next WOFF the person suggesting it will win a copy of the that new WOFF. It will run until we think we have a winner, or ideas fizzle out wink

If we choose a name based on a name posted here then well give the prize to that person suggesting it.
If we chose a name not here then we'll still pick a favourite name from here for the prize.
Obviously we won't be able to give the prize until WOFF is released.

OBD Software's decision is final, and all that...

Since this thread is now official, I recommend:

Wings Over Flanders Fields (Excelsior Edition - Sparkling Red)

Should be a natural development that way from the Ultimate/Platinum Eds. - Champagne - and keeps us around the vineyard, pruning and tweaking things (a nice metaphor for our hard-working developers at OBD).

We could use plane and/or ace names. This would give enough options to cover most of the alphabet.
WOFF: Albatross Edition
WOFF: Ball Edition
WOFF: Camel Edition
etc.

Although now that I write it, it's starting to sound like the Ubuntu naming scheme (Artful Aardvark, Bionic Beaver, ...).

Re: Unofficial WOFF 2020 Name Suggestions [NOW OFFICIAL! - Pol] - 11/11/20 07:44 PM

Hallo All,

nice ideas!
My favorites are "WOFF Diamond Edition" from @Wodin and "WOFF: Exelsior" from @VonS (so far).

My own suggestions:
1. "WOFF: Quantum Leap", because of the many new features and improvements.

2. "WOFF: Iridium", because the actual name "Platinum" is an metallic element and there is a Platinum Group with the elements Ruthenium, Rhodium, Palladium, Osmium and Iridium. And so you can use "Iridium" -or one of the other names- for the new version.

3. "WOFF: Beyond The Horizon (more classic simply)


Greetings and nice evening!

Firstly and again - thanks to everyone here, developers, modders, posters etc for keeping the evolution of this the greatest ww1 flight sim progressing as it has, and is - collectively we are all very fortunate to enjoy your efforts smile And have such an open, welcoming and helpful forum.

A few ideas in the spirit of its continual evolution

WOFF - Death’s New Dawn or Death’s Next Dawn or Death’s Dark Dawn

WOFF - Hell on High or Hell in the Heavens or Closer to Heaven

WOFF - New Horizons or To Never Surrender

Sorry if others had posted similar already!

Re: Unofficial WOFF 2020 Name Suggestions [NOW OFFICIAL! - Pol] - 11/12/20 01:46 PM

In light of the fact that the new expansion seems to be adding a lot of immersion from the pilot's view in the cockpit (turning heads, better AI, wind buffeting, improved scenery, etc) and the fact that OFF/WOFF has been improving for well over 10 years now I suggest:

WOFF: War is Personal.

Re: Unofficial WOFF 2020 Name Suggestions [NOW OFFICIAL! - Pol] - 11/12/20 02:55 PM

Some more to consider and overload the thought process with, this time incorporating Pol's idea about including "2021" in the title.

WOFF: The Great Air War 2021
WOFF: War in the Air 2021
WOFF: Rise to Glory 2021
WOFF: Between Heaven and Hell 2021 (a nice throwback don't you think)
WOFF: Heaven High Hell Deep 2021

And/or simply add "2021" to the following, some of which I mentioned earlier.

WOFF: The Sky Their Battlefield
WOFF: A Gathering of Eagles
WOFF: The High and the Mighty
WOFF: Fire in the Sky
WOFF: Endless Flight
WOFF: Tumult in the Clouds (Fullofit, this is the 'PG' adjusted version)

You could also place the "2021" ahead of the new title if the flow is better, such as this - WOFF: 2021 Between Heaven and Hell; or as this - WOFF 2021: Heaven High Hell Deep.

From the poem "Wings of the Morning" by F/Lt Jeffery Day, RNAS – WOFF: Wings of the Morning

The poem captures the images and impressions one will get from the next version of this stellar simulation…

On the Wings of the Morning
By Jeffery Day

A sudden roar, a mighty rushing sound,
A jolt or two, a smoothly sliding rise,
A tumbled blur of disappearing ground,
And then all sense of motion slowly dies,
Quiet and calm, the earth slips past below,
As underneath a bridge still waters flow.

My turning wing inclines toward the ground;
The ground itself glides up with graceful swing
And at lane’s far tip twirls slowly round,
Then drops from sight again beneath the wing
To slip away serenely as before,
A cubist-patterned carpet on the floor.

Hills gently sink and valleys gently fill.
The flattened fields grow ludicrously small;
Slowly they pass beneath and slower still
Until they hardly seem to move at all.
Then suddenly they disappear from sight
Hidden by fleeting wisps of faded white.

The wing-tips, faint and dripping, dimly show
Blurred by the wreaths of mist that intervene.
Weird, half-seen shadows flicker to and fro
Across the pallid fog-bank’s blinding screen.
At last the choking mists release their hold,
And all the world is silver, blue and gold.

The air is clear, more clear than sparkling wine;
Compared with this wine is a turgid brew.
The far horizon makes a clean-cut line
Between the silver and depthless blue.
Out of the snow-white level reared on high
Glittering hills surge up to meet the sky.

Outside the wind screen’s shelter gales may race;
But in the seat a cool and gentle breeze
Blows steadily upon my grateful face.
As I sit motionless and at my ease,
Contented just to loiter in the sun
And gaze around me till the day is done.

And so I sit half sleeping, half awake,
Dreaming a happy dream of golden days
Until at last, with a reluctant shake
I rouse myself and with lingering gaze
At all the splendour of the shining plain
Make ready to come down to earth again.

The engine stops; a pleasant silence reigns-
Silence, not broken, but intensified
By the soft, sleepy wire’ insistent strains,
That rise and fall as with a sweeping glide
I slither down the well-oiled sides of space,
Towards a lower, less enchanted place.

The clouds draw nearer, changing as they come.
Now, like a flash, fog grips me by the throat.
Down goes the nose: at once the wire’s low hum
Begins to rise in volume and in note,
Till, as I hurtle from the choking cloud
It swells into a scream, high pitched, and loud.

The scattered hues and shades of green and brown
Fashion themselves into the land I know,
Turning and twisting, as I spiral down
Towards the landing-ground; till, skimming low
I glide with slackening speed across the ground,

Pleased to see this thread whizzing along nicely gents’, with stimulating suggestions.

@Raine, I especially like the “Wings of the Morning” idea.

While I’ve already given a suggestion (and thank you Becker for the support regarding “Excelsior Edition - Sparkling Red,” to carry the wine metaphor forward), I was feeling a wee bit eccentric today biggrin so I thought of another few possibilities that may come in handy:

WOFF: Linen & Brass Tappets Edition (LABTE)

WOFF: Laminated Propeller Special (LPS)

WOFF: Improved Aerofoil Extravaganza (IAE)

WOFF: Most Intensive Addon and/or Missing in Action (MIA)

WOFF: Extra Horsepower Expansion Pack (EHEP)

WOFF: Thin Moustache Upgrade (TMU)

WOFF: Land of No Return (LONR)

Happy flying,
Von S smile2

Re: Unofficial WOFF 2020 Name Suggestions [NOW OFFICIAL! - Pol] - 11/13/20 10:44 AM

.

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 !

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...)

The homage to the autobiographies of those who were actually bloody well there in the suggested names is something I think very worthwhile and honourable to pursue as a theme for future editions.

Maybe it's not marketable but it's meaningful.

So,
WOFF: Sagittarius Rising
WOFF: I Chose the Sky
WOFF: Flying Fury

and all the other like titles previously suggested, i.e. et cetera.

Another suggestion. It's a little long-winded, but I think it captures things pretty well...

WOFF: Fabric and Steel (The aircraft and men of WWI)
or
WOFF: Fabric Wings and Iron Men

Years ago somebody suggested "Wooden Crosses, Iron Men." Maybe that was even you?

I don't think it was me. Honestly, I can't remember!

Consciously or not, however, it likely served as the inspiration for my most recent effort.

I have a feeling they have already chosen a title.

Last two from me

We are pleased to announce the next major release of WOFF will be called:


WINGS OVER FLANDERS FIELDS
BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL II

I believe it was RAF_Louvert who suggested BH&H so a free copy will be winging it's way when it's released.
