Our next wave of website updates for April 2018 are here. Many of them focus on building up structure for some future projects that are now having their groundwork built. For this post, Ribbon-Blue will outline these updates and discuss upcoming and in progress projects. Discussion about the Infinity Memorial project, Forum development, April artist focus and the 1st Aircraft Skin contest.
Greetings Ace Combatants, we have some exciting announcements to make!
Firstly, today marks the first major update to the Official Lighthouse Website for 2018, and we do sincerely apologize for the long wait this has been. Hopefully, with these major announcements, we can more than make up for lost time. So, without further ado, let's get started!
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.
