Ribbon-Blue here, hoping that your holiday season was made a bit more enjoyable with the Project: Lighthouse fan translation of the prologue for Ace Combat: Ikaros in the Sky. Though it was released just three days ago we are already receiving valuable feedback. Alongside some edits, info we can use to better manage future releases and streamline the process has also been obtained. As the next wave of materials is being prepared for translation, I will discuss this information. Click "read more" for more information and photos.
Seasons greetings and happy holidays from Project: Lighthouse. This is the first blog post for December and one of two posts to be made this month. This post includes updates for the Ikaros in the Sky Translation, an aircraft skin design contest and a original aircraft magazine.
Ikaros in the Sky Update 02
Translation of the prologue of Ikaros is complete. Translation of other story materials has also begun with the translation of Chapter 01 starting in January 2018. We are aiming for a December 25th, 2017 release of the prologue and other introductory story materials. The translations will be posted into a soon to be opened area on this website specifically for the book.
Aircraft Skin Contest
An upcoming aircraft skin design contest is to start in January 2018. Contestants will be presented with a blank three view of an aircraft. Contestants will have the entire month of January to add their own design to the aircraft and send it to Project: Lighthouse through the designated contest page. The submitted paint schemes will be featured on the Project: Lighthouse website with a winning design selected. This winning design will be modded into Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception and Ace Combat X2: Joint Assault. The event page for this contest will be opened on January 1st, 2018.
Original Aircraft Magazine
Various members of Lighthouse have begun constructing a magazine style presentation of their own original aircraft designs. The magazine only features aircraft they themselves have designed from the ground up on paper, with 3D graphics programs and through other means. Development of the first magazine has begun.
Ribbon-Blue here with an update on the official beginning of our translation efforts. A poll was held this weekend concerning the beginning of our first translation project. Of the three titles selected, Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War was selected. Rather than start with information available on the official Japanese websites, Lighthouse has decided to use its unique access to the Ace Combat Zero Perfect Guide. I will also be discussing our other translation efforts, which include our effort to translate the book: Ace Combat: Ikaros in the Sky.
Greetings and thank you for your continued support of Project: Lighthouse. Over the past few days since our official launch, we've had quite the influx of members from around the world. The Lighthouse media team has created a multilingual article demonstrator to continue our support of members and guests from around the world.
An example of the swipe and drag function of the demonstrator.
Please take a look at our full demonstrator page for all information. We look forward to receiving on our Facebook, Twitter and Discord channel.

Welcoming Aces From Every Sky
Greetings and welcome to Project: Lighthouse. A year ago this website was just a wishful thought. Today, it is a reality. This is our first step. Going forward this blog will inform our guests and members about our new releases, website updates, announcements for community events and much more. The information available on this blog will also be made available on our Facebook and Twitter accounts. The introduction to Lighthouse can't be summed up in a single blog post. Our introduction can be seen across the articles, interviews, photography and other content that is currently available on our website. This defines who we are going forward.
