Gotcha. Well, I will follow this with interest. I'm hoping some folks in beta test will have some lower end machines to provide a valid range of specs.

Nice work so far.......

I've never been happy with the feel of prop-planes in the SF series - have you been able to work some magic with their flight models.
Assuming no demo, any chance of releasing a single plane as a demo so we can try it out in SF?
Cheers,
Keith

We have modified the flight models. They are complex programs. The model has the features TK wanted it to have and does not have a few others.

We incorporated some things that Wolf did that cause them to act like airplanes but we are not certain that sim flyers are prepared to play in that world. Accelerated stalls, being behind the power curve, snap rolls: these things that are part of flying high-performance prop planes. If you pull too hard on the stick, you are going over on your back and if you don't recover, you are going into the dirt. Overshoot and you are going to be a target. And if you don't fly a P-40 like Chennault told his pilots to fly them, you will be hitting REFLY more than you wish. We will advise the players to fly like it's WWII, not WWI. Get into position, take the shot, break off.

If we make it too real, we will eliminate the vast majority of players who shy away from flight sims because they do not wish to have to learn to fly.

We have concentrated on armor and armament to try to make a kill more realistic. You can still get a lucky shot but in most cases you have to out-maneuver the opponent to get enough holes into him to kill him.

As far as releasing one of our models, we will send the game out to reviewers.

Please allow me to just add a tidbit here. You know how in Yankee Air Pirate and WOV you were always told never try and turn with a Mig?
Well let me tell you, with the early fighters, never try and turn with a Zero in Rising Sun. No matter how hard I haul back on the stick, they always get inside me, and I see tracers whipping past my canopy and then hear that dreaded thunk and rapid tink, tink, tink. Too much fun.

OK, will wait for the SimHQ review smile
I'm kind of wierd, handling in the circuit and landing is as important to me as dog-fighting...
Cheers,
