I just read the interview with ROF developers, concerning the past present and future of this sim.
An interesting comment was that the new Channel map was just "perfect for Spitfires and Messerschmidts."
All right, he did add, "I can dream, can't I?" But still, why dream? They're the people making the sim. They can do anything they want. DCS added a P-51 to a jet sim. Just cause they wanted to. But don't stop at Spits and '109's. How about Thunderbolts? Razorback Jugs and B-17's, the early days of the 8TH Air Force.
I'm even fooling myself into believing that its the whole reason for the map. You can't develope a WW1 sim , forever. Although you can certainly do it for a long time. When they've had enough, the Channel map is perfect for continuing on into other areas. I'm just imaging a Thunderbolt done with the same care and loving detail as the ROF airplanes have been given.
Just thinking out loud. Like the man said. "I can dream, can't I?"
"From our orbital vantage point, we observe an earth without borders, full of peace, beauty and magnificence, and we pray that humanity as a whole can imagine a borderless world as we see it, and strive to live as one in peace."
