Not much shrieking like a 14-year old girl, more like shrieking like a mid-30s male... wink


The only thing I can safely confirm is that there will be A LOT of shrieking!

It doesn't matter what you call it, the planes in FC3 are still far lower fidelity on the modeling side from the others. That's why they're cheaper.

I'm not even saying they need to release them at $10 each like those are, they can charge $20 or $25 and I think they will do well. No clickable cockpit, no fancy avionics or cockpit systems, but a decent FM and DM are still there.

Ford, Toyota, and Volkswagen wouldn't be where they are now if they'd insisted on taking the route of Ferrari and only making small runs of overly sophisticated sports cars.
ED is not Ferrari, nor are the 3rd parties. Make some lower-priced cars for the masses already!

+1

This would be espcially good for adding a flyable heavy to the sim. You dont simply jump into a C-17 or C-130 and have it up and running in 5-7 minutes. It's a 30 minute process, minimum.

More of these FC3 level aircraft are an easy way to fill gaps and keep the interest fresh. For instance, the upcoming A-4 Skyhawk. Knowing full well that it will not be a fully clickable cockpit, the subject is drawing a ton of followers. The A-1 Skyraider from the same team, even more so.

Its the subject that captures peoples eye, not just switch flipping.

GM has been bailed out by the government as well and they filed chapter 11 in 2009.

Higher volume/lower priced products are still a sensible product to bring to market. Assuming the businesses can be managed successfully.

I completely agree with you. Most often than not, I don't even feel like going through all the switches, be it either in P3D, Falcon BMS, or DCS, and I just want to fly. That process would also add desperately needed western fast jets to multiplayer.
Get me a Strike Fighter 2 F4 Phantom and I will be happy as #%&*$#.

Ford is named for the man who created the company.

Neither GM nor Tesla are.

Ferrari was.

ED was not.


Anyone else have any irrelevant factoids to interject here?
