Things have been a bit negative lately or so it seems to me. So I just thought I'd like to say how much I enjoy the awrds that Oleg & crew have come up with for the Japanese campaigns.
Considering that Japan didn't give it's pilots awards like most of the other combatants this posed a problem I imagine. But the Sake cup, certificate & the signed Hi-no-maru are just brilliant. Quite a bit better than medals in my opinion.
Somebody should buy those boys a beer!

Very good point and well said, but getting the pistol and the holster separately, as different awards, is a little odd. And, why would the holster be a higher award than the pistol?

I do find the pistol-holster as different awards not very succesfull too.
I would prefer a commendation which was not rare or a silver watch.

Havent gotten those yet, but yeah that does seem odd.
Also I like the idea of a silver watch & commendations. 1C always tweaks FMs & adds new planes, but I wonder if they'd be willing &/or able to make changes to the awards ?
Someone created revised German awards (historically correct including the swastica) so I suppose the graphics could be changed by a third party & I wouldn't think changing the text would be all that difficult....any talented volunteers ?

I'd love to do some texture work for the game if I knew it would be included.

I did a medal for a IL-2 related competition recently. Was the first time I've done anything like it.

Yes, it`s nice to hear positive news. People tend not to post and say when they`re happy with something, yet the shouts are loud when they are not happy.

But we must try to point out the deserving of praise parts, not just the bad. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I guess because a holster would be a pretty silly gift if you don't have a pistol to put in it.
Took me a while to realize that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Guess I just assumed all pilots would have a pistol. & they might have, is the pistol award especially sharp looking ?

I think a Wakizashi and a Katana would make very interesting and appropriate rewards as well for great deeds in combat, to honor your accomplishments as a Samurai of the 20th century. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Japanese pilots did't ,normally, own their pistols that were part of the unit's arsenal,except if it were spoils from downed enemy pilots(which was a very common practice excpecially in Chino-Japanese War)
