Is there any deadline for the EXTRAS, or can they be added any time in the future? I'd be happy to do more but at a reduced pace :lol:
It's not so tight becourse it is additional featuring. Plus - Career release may be delayed a bit (VERY complex thing…).
So, now I may call end of November as best TO-DO date. Also, please, post completed newspapers right after you completing them - it is very helpful for me - formating your articles and images and implementing them in configs - this work requires significant time.

THANK YOU!

Okay.

In many instances I saw stories I would have liked to do but the two slots per date were filled.

I'll go back and do some of those in the coming weeks.

I'm not sure if anyone has posted this (33 pages is a lot to trawl through lol) but in the example paper

the title 'Italy declares war to austria-hungary' is bad english.

It would be better to be 'Italy declares war on austria-hungary'

Yes, but it's excellent Russian!

Maybe we could get Viper and B-24 Liberator to proof read all these?

:lol:

Seriously, it should ALL be proof read before the final version goes into the game. Everyone needs an editor. Always.

And Austria-Hungary and English all should be capitalized ;)

I would be more than happy to offer my proof reading skills if you guys want it. I am native English speaker with a good command over the written language, so I would be capable of spotting grammatical and spelling errors if needs be. Just let me know :)

Just because I can give multiple orgasms to the furniture just by sitting on it, doesn't mean that I'm not sick of this damn war: the blood, the noise, the endless poetry...

HT and everyone else - it's been a pleasure working on this with all of you sorry I couldn't help you all with the final finishing touches!

Han - it's great to see everything in green. I can't wait to see the finished article (pun intended) in the game!

I'm tied up on my thesis and other issues a lot at the moment but will work on extras (Particularly key aces dying? And maybe new planes launched at the front??) as and when I can.

Thanks guys great efforts all round… [High fives!]

We even finished (almost) on time!

I'm going to crank out some extras over the next few weeks but not at that break-neck pace again.

Hope you're as lucky with your thesis as I was. The dean of the college loved it and made that clear at my orals. Everyone else on the panel quit asking questions after the boss said his piece :lol:

Stay in touch!

To be honest I'm not sure my name should be there - in the end I was only able to contribute for a single day, as unfortunately October ended up being spent house-hunting and looking after the missus as she came down with tonsillitis during my fortnight's annual leave.

Excellent work HT and Tom C - thanks for really shining on this, guys. You've done some cracking work.

Luke,

One of the more interesting (to me as a retired newspaper reporter) aspects of doing this project was spotting the differences in current style (the Associated Press Stylebook is The Bible) and how it differed almost 100 years ago.

Back then, war ship was two words. Today it is warship.

I found lots of similar style changes and always chose to leave them the way they were written at the time, just to "preserve" the flavor.

For example, there is a story about Rickenbacker recruiting racing car drivers and mechanics to join the Air Service. He calls them "mechanicians," which totally befuddles my spell check, but I left it as it was because it is authentic to the time period :lol:

I appreciate anyone reading through these stories and posting any typographical errors they find here. It would be a shame to see any carried over into RoF. Please post any you spot.

This was a style change and I decided it was a "stet" (leave it as is) ;)

Thanks!

Good Catch!

Tom-Cundall did all of 1918 so I can't open it to edit it. Most (but not all) of 1916 and 1917 are mine.

Maybe Han can fix it!

Thanks!

Not the best place to put it stick it in the 'general discussions' as a new topic - I believe they were called Black Flight and they flew Sopwith Triplanes for 10 Squadron RNAS.


Collishaw was probably the best-known exponent of the Sopwith Triplane's superb fighting qualities. A Canadian, he was given command of "B" Flight of No. 10 (Naval) Squadron on April 1st, 1917. This was the famous "Black Flight", as redoubtable a fighting unit as took the air during the war. Between May and July, 1917 it accounted for no fewer than eighty-seven enemy aircraft. All the pilots were Canadians. The original members were Flight Sub-Lieutenant E. V. Reid, Flight Sub-Lieutenant J. E. Sharman, Flight Sub-Lieutenant G. E. Nash, and Flight Sub-Lieutenant W. M. Alexander. The Triplanes of the Black Flight were named Black Death, Black Maria, Black Roger, Black Prince and Black Sheep.

In a combat on June 26th, 1917, Nash was wounded and forced down behind the enemy lines by Lieutenant Allmenroder, a German pilot with thirty victories to his credit. Next day Collishaw avenged the loss of his friend. In a fight which began near Courtrai, he shot down and killed Allmenroder, forcing his green tailed Albatros to crash on the outskirts of Lille.

In twenty-seven days during June, 1917, Collishaw shot down sixteen enemy machines. All, except three, were Albatros and Halberstadt single-seat fighters.

Not sure if they are in game or not. Welcome to the forum - hope you have fun!! :)

Han, I have over fity advertisements for WWI era items. Things like ads for Crossley Automobiles, Carapace Flying suits, AVRO aircraft, various magnetos,spark plugs and other odds and ends. I can send you some or all if you'd like. They are all black and white and look like they come from local newspapers of the time. Could be used as filler.

That would definitely add some colour to the game and add a bit of backstory/immersion effect, go for it. :D

Edit: How did you get them?

They are mostly images, although some have text articles written within them. I would treat them as images. They are in the back of a flying manual that came with a copy of Flying Corps Gold. Its a reprint of "Practical Flying" by Flight Cmdr WG McInnies, RN. Temple Press, 1918
Heres an example

Good stuff Steviant. They're advertisements of the period and would add to the overall feel of the era if used in the new career :)
