November 11th, 2018. The one year anniversary of Project: Lighthouse opening its doors to the public. Thank you for your continued support over one year of operations! Throughout this week announcements concerning long term and near future Lighthouse plans will be made. For the first post we start with anniversary aircraft skins and new icons.
On that note, Ace Combat Fan continues to work on the second entry of the video series. This weekend he is prioritizing audio work and other editing. Once the video reaches a certain point in its completion, a release date can be confirmed and announced.
As mentioned in the announcement for the Second Aircraft Skin Contest, the live stream in support of the contest is now live.
A live stream is being hosted on November 2nd 2018, 7PM Eastern Time (GMT-4). The stream will primarily focus on creating a custom skin for use in Ace Combat X and Ace Combat: Joint Assault. One of the skin creators that is a part of Project Lighthouse will be hosting the stream and creating the skin. Other skin creators that are a part of and are friends of the group will also be attending the stream, offering skinning advice and other commentary.
The launch of Ace Combat 101 took place on October 23rd, 2018 with the first article and video made available. The presentation of Tomcat 171's video on The Basics of Flight set a high bar for video production in the project. Ace Combat Fan is already hard at work on his video which will be the second entry in the video series.
Project Lighthouse has begun writing the second article that focuses on Strangereal, the original Ace Combat world. Condensing Strangereal history, it's development as the franchise grew and information beyond what is found in the games is no easy task. Though work on the article has begun, discussions with a potential fourth entrant into the Ace Combat 101 collaboration project are currently in progress. Their participation in Ace Combat 101 would primarily deal with the Strangereal article. If confirmed, this fourth entrant will be announced in a follow on blog post.
