Every week I try to lower my expectations regarding these "updates" but every time they manage to disappoint me again.

By now I've just given up on trying to understand what Luthier&Co are doing there.

Do they honestly believe to reach a broader audience by integrating some kind of tank game into a flightsim? That they could actually take away a share from the guys who play World of Tanks or Red Orchestra 2? Do they actually have ANY idea how the whole thing should work from a gameplay PoV opposed to "wouldn't it be totally cool if"?

And all that with the very limited resources that have plagued the series for years? So that we'll get a 3rd-rate tank game added to our 2nd-rate flightsim?

I shake my head in disbelief...

Must be one helluva creation..


Well it starts with creating it in the FMB and recording it as a track, switching between camera positions. I should think that reloading the mission and re-recording it would do the trick but perhaps there are scripting issues? Who can say till we get it and see what they mean. I remember that tracks I recorded in 1946 didn't work the same after patches sometimes. Whenever I try to record a track in COD my game crashes.

I find this quite exciting - I figure it increases the probability that they'll model collisions with trees... (given time)

I got Pacific Fighters because I wanted to try flying the Ki-43, but more importantly, because it would lower the daylight muzzleflashes on my Mig-3... The dev's can't please everyone: If they announced they were making a submarine sim - I wouldn't be thrilled, but I'd still be excited to have AI submarines which dive when under attack wink

IMHO, at some point you have to decide between a glass-half-full or a glass-half-empty. The first is more fun.

I envy you for your optimism, Aimimus. I really do.

I'd actually be happy if I had a glass half full. At the moment I feel like I've ordered a glass of water, got a tambourine instead and get told that I'll get a pair of sandals to go with that sometime in the future. That's probably great if you like tambourines and sandals but I just want a glass of water thank you.

I am actually beginning to think that these "updates" were made simply for the sake of saying "something". For starters PR has always been the red-headed stepchild of MG and with Luthier at the helm it's only gotten worse so I guess they don't want to invest more than the bare minimum of time. Secondly I have problems imagining what kind of update would actually pacify the community - and especially how that would look like. Performance vid? Too dependent on the hardware. FM? Can't be shown. Bugfixing? No screenshot or vid potential. It would, essentially, be a list of fixes ... and I don't see Luthier sit down to actually compile such a list. Not that it would end the criticism, since it's quite clear that not all the problems will be solved with the next patch. blush

We hopefully wanted to see how the 'flight simulation' side is improving.. Is it me? Am I assuming too much by wanting to see some actual air combat simulation progress?.. if so I apologize in advance.


It ain't just you....


I want to know when I can see "massive air battles" you know....like in the Battle of Britain.

By the time this is possible my 3000 worth of gaming rig will be worth about twenty quid...good job I bought it for surfing the net as well eh pitchafit

Their answer to world of planes mmo? Tanks and planes seems a common theme at the moment, perhaps luthier is just getting an edge on the competition.
