I concur with everything HumanDone so eloquently stated. Well done, sir. Capt - I hope that you can get the interviews you are looking for, but good luck pulling them away from WOTR development. The devs have been quiet as field mice this past year or so and I am sure that means every spare moment is working on pushing out WOTR. Hopefully we will at least get some more work in progress screens soon. That we haven't gotten any preview movies yet like we did with WOFF leads me to believe that they are still some time away from completion. Hopefully in the 3rd quarter of 2018 - but that's just me hoping, not the devs promising anything.

As for how I got back into WWI flight sims Soppy, you sent me a Phase 2 CD and I have been hooked ever since. Thank you for that remarkably kind gesture. It's just one of countless acts of good will that this community has displayed, making the community itself every bit as special as the sim.

I always forget that I got you pulled into this odd band of fliers, Hellshade! I was just paying it forward. OvS sent me my copy of Phase 2 back in the day as well - I've kept it for sentimental value as he signed the sleeve the CD came in. My feeling on WOTR is shared with yours - and I've always had complete faith in OBD that "it'll be done when it's done." Frankly, with grad school and insane life schedules over the last five years, I'm still barely scratching the surface of what WOFF:UE has to offer - so I don't feel lacking for gameplay at the moment. I think I'll start writing a piece on twenty years of playing WWI flight sims. I begged my parents for a copy of Red Baron II twenty years ago this fall and well... here I am. Should be fun and hopefully the folks around here would like to read it.

Thinking about firing up a super-early war campaign with the French, maybe give some reconnaissance work a try for a change. Should be interesting!

Flying WOFF UE is like standing on the "Everest" of WW1 flight sims, IMHO.
Don't believe the future for WW1 sims will hold anything further; but if so it won't compare at all.

I have been flying WOFF for years and years; still find it totally immersive, "relaxing", surprising, and getting better with all the modding that is going on.

WOFF has to be one of the coolest games on my PC.

Thanks to all of you for the kind words. I'm very glad to see RAF_Louvert post - and humbled by his complements. Raine, Capt. Sopwith, Hellshade, MFair (who put his money where his mouth is) - I stand among those greater than myself. Truly. All of you have done far more than I have to support this work. Ace Pilto, thanks for the drinks! bottles

And yeah - this is the Everest of WWI sims. It can only get better! Soppy, I hope you get time - and material - to write your article. It's amazing that you could probably do your interviews from halfway around the world via Skype or something similar - as long as one of you was willing to get up early or stay up late!

Well, I got this conference paper that was due last Friday, so back to work. I feel like Charlie Brown dragging "War and Peace" around with him all Christmas vacation!
