The first update for the month is here. Update July-2018-1 is the first step towards an entirely new level of Lighthouse operations and content creation seen on our website. Ribbon-Blue, part of the administrative staff of Lighthouse, discusses the July upgrades and explains changes that were gradually made over time in June:
The updates this time around are extensive with quite a bit of testing, redesign and even more testing behind them. During the process of this update, our team members were more active than ever assisting with website development, project planning, and content creation. Though some of this content is not available in this update, it is coming soon. Let's focus on a few particular areas:
2018 Front Page Layout Introduction
The new, noticeable changes to the front page format were a long time coming. This layout had been tested and redesigned since June 2nd, 2018. The design was officially finalized on July 2nd but a last-minute burst of heated effort on July 8th caused yet another redesign which created what is seen as of the time of this post. This look and functionality is something Lighthouse has had in mind since its conception. Getting it to this point is special for us. As always, please send your feedback to us with the information available on our contact page.
ACZ Ace Pilot Profile Translations
Alongside Ikaros in the Sky, translations of the Sky and the Ace Combat Zero Perfect Guidebook were our initial goals for translation. This was stated many months ago in 2017. TaskForce23, who assisted with parts of the June 2018 Famitsu Interview translation, joined in our efforts at Project Lighthouse. Shortly after joining, TaskForce23 translated the Ace Pilot Profile section of the ACZ Perfect Guidebook. The second highlight of this release is the accurate recreation of the Belkan and Osean military identification cards created by Cae Lumis. The ID cards are featured alongside the translation and show an immense level of dedication to accuracy.
Article Format Adjustments, Changes
An unforeseen problem arose in mid-June which caused the deletion of some of our content within the Articles section of the website. An emergency quick fix was applied which then broke the uniformity of our article formatting at that time. Our article format was adjusted throughout that month which resulted in a change of the look and function of the Articles page of our website. Thank you for supporting us through this brief rough patch and we hope you enjoy our new article format.
New Website Content
Two new articles and three new galleries are now available on our site:
-Article: Points of Importance About Ace Combat 7
-Gallery: ASEAN Air Forces
-Gallery: Tour of Planet Ouroboros
-Gallery: "Welcome Back"
-Review: Japanese Otaku City R/C Flight
Future July Updates
Our second planned update, July 2018-2, will feature information about the next guidebook material being translated and an important announcement concerning 2018 Gamescom in Germany. A third July update is currently in planning stages but may be held off until early August 2018.
As always, thanks for visiting Project Lighthouse and communicating with us through our various Discord servers, email, and social media.
Until next time,
