Way over in Perth, Western Aus...
Maybe by 2025... and it will only have AIM-9 and Mk-82s and no AG radar...

The video all looks very nice but I'd like to see some of that running on normal machines people have to see framerates and stutter rates, especially on MP servers...

They keep advertising and improving the graphics of DCS, which was never a point of complaint of DCS. The complaints stem from the horrible air defence AI, AI SFM for aircraft, and broken and uncompleted modulegalore.

As long as ED gets run as a hobby project, instead of a professional company, this will never change. (And ED will never get run as an actual business, considering the pispoor attitude of its employees and attrocious track record since the first -buggy- LockOn)

I don't know why I cannot watch scenes of destruction with that kind of music - even of the simulated kind, my guess is that somewhere in that video there is a viper, if so, when and if it is completely done, I mean by that bug free and affordably priced I could at some point, free time allowing, consider it.

coming in 2019 and beyond....looks like the focus is on a human controlled B17 to me with 7+ seats of multiplayer positions more than anything worth projecting, so"lets fill in the last 10 seconds of the video with some suspense to keep the consumer keen"

I'd have to agree with you on that (which is a first) biggrin The choice of music was extremely poor and I'd rather stick with default engine noises. Easy fix... turn the volume to '0'.

I just deleted DCS for good so I'm going with a no too.


I debated a flat earther once. He got so mad he stormed off saying he would walk to the edge of the earth and prove me wrong. He'll come around eventually.

Edited to add: I have no doubt it will look absolutely stunning, and I'll enjoy seeing screens/videos of it. However, gameplay will suck because DCS gameplay sucks. A button simulator does not a game make. Falcon will still rule in the gameplay department.

A DCS viper would be "shinier"...but still wouldn't compete against the full package that BMS is.

Yup,I sure am. In actual fact I deleted it purely because my interest in flight sims has waned significantly,not because of any sort of DCS hate. I should have stated that and then just saved you a post.

I predict it will have a great start-up sequence and there will be opportunities for great screenshots.

However, it will have an early release before the F/A-18 is finished (and will effectively signal the end of development for that module) and the same old people will be shouting 'take my money'.

It will never get finished.

Because why make a decent product, when you have a legion of sheep eating whatever cardboard you throw at them?

Sooner or later this whole situation will blow up on their face if they fail to delivery all those promises.

I'm not an ED fanboy, however this negativity about a possible F-16 seems to me, for once, a bit too much.

If they're able to deliver a ground radar and a sniper pod for the F-18, there is no reason why they would fail at copy/paste (with any minor adjustment needed) it to the F-16.

Ofc, don't preorder anything from ED as long as you're not satisfied with previous products, but if/when hornet is complete, I'll have reasonable trust in a quality viper release.

It's not really a case of what they can/can't deliver.....it's actually finishing/polishing a module before the release of another in early release.
