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.
