It's a sad fact that flight sim development is so difficult and complex, and it takes lots of years for independent developers to make a working one.
I really, really hope initiatives like this one, and Seven-G will prove fruitful.
Another sad fact, combat flight sims are so niche a market, bigger software houses with enough resources won't have a thing to do with them anymore. If I'm not mistaken, only two actively developed commercial combat sims remain today, in their respective areas.
Monopoly is a bad thing, alternatives and competition are good, I really wish there were more options to play with in combat flight sim world.
While I love community efforts like BMS, CloD : Team Fusion, and EECH updates, and enjoy them in my PC, a more modern, commercial product is something else, and much easier to coerce other people into.
Here's hoping we'll see this one in our computers in a year or so
. Any update is better than lapsing slowly and silently into dark depths of developmental abyss, so it's nice developer honestly spoke of difficulties but also added he is continuing on. Will it prove fruitful? We'll just have to wait and see.
