I have managed to create a new icon but I discovered that it was unnecessary because the icon in DOF is much better....

How can I test if my new medals work correctly?

I had stopped my work on it due a lot of 'work' last autumn and after it I got the damn covid that left me with annoying issues from winter until now....but you're lucky....I'm again able to work a bit in those days and this project is just resumed!


I'm glad you have recovered and that you are able to continuing this important update for WW1!  ]thumbsup[

Small update....

Actually from new units to existing countries I change the target of the project to add WW1 air services to the game....

ATM the Central powers are in advanced development (I hope to have them beta tested on late april and ready for may):

German Army Air Service : done all units , ranks , medals and icon now developing pilots images , names and places of birth
German Navy Air Service : same as above
Austro-Hungarian Air Service : done all units , editing materials collected for ranks , awards and the pilots
Turkish Empire : done all units , collecting materials

The other nations 'll be:

Royal Flying Corps (up to april 1918) about 150 Squadrons
Royal Naval Air Service (up to april 1918) about 20 Squadrons
Royal Air Force (from april 1918) the megred of the 2 above plus Squadrons established after
Royal Australian Air Corps (4 Squadrons)
Aeronautique Militaire (France)
American Expeditonary Force
Belgian Air Force

On later stages

Italian Air Force
Imperial Russian Air Force
Greek Air Force
Serbian Air Force (their 3 Squadrons anyway done)
White Russian

Small update....

Central powers nations almost finished and optimized as new nation also for Dgen....

ATM the allies are in units development.....RNAS is done (All Squadrons Wings and Naval Station plus independent flight that are deployed in maps we have in game) and I'looking at the French Air Force.....and here I have a big question.....

French Esquadrille were both numbered and identified by the type of their assigned aircraft.....this mean more than 1 entries for each squadron....

As in the administrative registration and documents the type of the aircraft is not usually reported....I plan to build the squadrons only by number and not by number&type....do you accept this solution or is better to have the other approach?

I'll add a poll to hear your opinion.....

I have made a research of the French Esquadrilles....with the aircraft prefix (N , SOP , MS and so on) I have to build 530 different units....with the Groups Ithink to be at 550+ units....a big task but could be done in some loooong weeks....

UPDATE

Still at work....I'm doing all the units with their prefix....ex the squadron 124 'll be composed from 2 entries: N 124 and SPA 124 respectively usable when equipped initially with Neuport and lately with SPAD....

At the moment I have completed the sequence until squadron nr. 173....SPA 173 to be precise....

In the next future squadrons series 200 that were dedicated for long range artillery fire direction....

I think still a month or so on....after this one the RFC and the RAF....as wrote some post up the RNAS is done....

P.S.

ATM the AR squadrons and the SPAbi squadrons aren't included because we haven't those aircraft in our game....if in the future they 'll be added (I asked to include in DOF the AR-1 developed from Aviaskin mates) I'll update the missing squadrons too....

Thanks mate!

Today I collect info about the American Expeditionary Aero units and I plan to build their files between friday and saturday...

Next should be the Italian Air force but I haven't find any useful source about which of it's Squadriglie was active....

I think that I could have a public beta ready for september (with all nations included and with the DGen countries with all their files ready)
