Attention Pilots!

As most of you know already, you can purchase airplanes and other add-on content as gifts and send the activation code to a friend or family member. This was a feature requested by the community and it’s been available to all ROF users for a while now, but we still get questions about how to do it properly, so are detailed instructions to make it easier to understand the process.

All you need is an ROF player account and an activated copy of ROF to participate.

Here’s how it works:

1. In the ROF Store you will now see an option to Buy as a Gift on each product page. You can purchase more than one if you would like. Simply follow the usual procedure for purchasing a plane or demo upgrade from our website using a credit card or PayPal.

2. After purchase your account will now list the license(s) available to send to your friend or family member. To see the license(s) simply click on Profile and then Gifts while logged into the ROF website. You will see a list of codes purchased by you and whether or not they have been activated yet.

3. To send a Gift code to a friend click on Send and then enter the person’s Forum Nickname. Hit Send and an email will be sent to the email address associated with that person’s ROF account.

4. If our automated email fails to reach that person, you can always send an email to them yourself or send a PM through the forum with the proper code.

5. To activate a Gift code code simply click on Profile and then License while logged into the ROF website. Then enter the code into the Gift Activation box and click on Activate. Now launch ROF and Login Online one time to sync your account and then that plane is available to your ROF account forever.

6. Once a code is activated by a recipient, that code will show as activated on your Gifts page.

7. Currently the Gift feature is available for individual Airplanes, Campaigns, Maps and Personal Packages. Due to the complexity of unlocking Field Mods and Weapon Mods gifting of these items is not currently available. Gifting of Demo Upgrades is also not available, but we will hopefully change that in the future.

We hope you will enjoy the Gift feature and help us spread more Rise of Flight joy to the flight-simulation community!

Salute<>

Have been enjoying the weapon mods and wanted to buy the set as a gift for a pilot. Any idea when the gift option will be available for the weapon mods?

Thanks,

I was given Iron Cross Edition of RoF, I presently have the "Free" version and want to update it to the gift I was given. It will not work by putting in the "Gift Code" because its a License not a gift like an a/c or map.
I'm told to enter profile and then license and add the code there. The only place to enter numbers is in the Gift Box and they state Invalid when entered.

I've purchased a few planes and worry of losing them by starting from scratch, thus losing the planes and settings.

Any help or advise appreciated.

Send an email to rof@777studios.net (they're usually very quick at sorting these problems out, but they won't be in the office over the weekend and the holidays may delay things).

Wich "Gift" icon? I have went to the "profile" and I can just find the icons for "purchases" "profile" and "license keys". I bought the Nieuport 17GBR as a gift to my friend but I don't know how to send it.

If a bear can be in the artillery, why not in the airforce too?

Yes, the store/gifts interface has changed since this was written. 

You can find your gifts in your licence keys tab of your profile, here: http://riseofflight....e/license-keys/ . Look at very bottom.

 

If your gift is not activated, there should be a "send gift" button next to licence key for your gift. Press it, and you should be able to type in your friends forum nick to send gift directly to him. Can't check how exactly it works, I have no unsent gifts.

The error-free way is to copy the key of your gift, send it to your friend via PM, email or chat, and have him activate it by pasting it in activation window on top of his licence keys page, again here http://riseofflight....e/license-keys/
