Hello dear pilots!

Autumn came and it means that we have reached the final part of the development. In today's update will be fixed some bugs and will be added a few new elements, they are not big and will not have a special effect on the gameplay.

Today we'll give the latest beta version to a certain group of players. It will turn into release candidate after passing of process of debugging and thereafter it will already turn into release. The campaign has a lot of bugs as any soft built on random generation, it's extremely difficult to check out all the options. We'll focus on this process all our efforts now.

The exact release date of the project will depend on how the debugging process will go. We'll announce it as soon as we can. At some point, release candidate will be public and you will see it too, but it will happen only after major errors will be corrected.

Many thanks to all who helps us to create training videos and texts, many thanks to all who helped us in the first week after a release of the project in Steam. Flight simulator game called niche, it so and probably someone says so finding it's a shortcoming. But on the other hand this is the great strength of the genre. When the players are no longer gamers and become pilots, creating a unique community.

So when I prepurchased to play beta builds I guess that was a hunk of horse manure. locking of missions for special players, locking Single player for special players...I don't care if it nukes my install, I paid to get the latest updates.

You've misunderstood. You have update 78 which is the latest.

There is also a debugging group which gets the updates for the next couple of weeks in early form. They then (hopefully) find the worst bugs which means less problems for you and complaints from you when you get the fixed version when it's ready. These test versions have issues that you really don't want so let them fix them and get them out asap.

You didn't pre-purchase to play beta builds. You pre-purchased to have early access. No one told you that we'd have anything but early access.

I guess since I didn't read the EULA, it probably says that. Early Access (alpha build) which is what was being offered at the time; Seemed to me like I was being sold a product like steam early access, and how 90% of those run. That's all. Some people hate it I enjoy it.
I'm just stating disappointment here, we can all put away the note pads and legal documents...

I probably assumed you've been around long enough to know better, shadylurker. Not everyone keeps up with every detail of development from the start. I'll put the note pad away.

No "beta/early access" game gives you the latest dirtiest version of the game straight off the developer's hard drive. I'm afraid you'll have to get a job there if that's what you're expecting...

One glorious day a sim will come out that will put single player campaign first and you onliners will have to wait for the add-on!

Not one day, more like "a day in the 1990s". smile

One bad thing about the rise of broadband vs dial-up is that MP gaming took the crown from SP.
