From their site

'MicroProse – World Exclusive!
Earlier this year we learned that MicroProse had been re-launched. We invited its CEO, David Lagettie, to take part in an interview to discuss his plans for this iconic brand.'

the illustration on that magazine shows it - maybe even though they don't own F4 they still can make a new version of it.

No point in a new version of Falcon 4. All they need to do is sign an agreement with the BMS crew, use what they've created and then have the Microprose engineers create a new terrain/graphics engine to integrate all that with. Something where the terrain is one layer, and then there's a second mesh layer to simulate the Falcon 4 engine's terrain system so everything BMS is build around including the campaign engine can snap in with the new terrain.

I don't write code anymore, but that's what I would think of doing. A modern multi-core system could be used, so you have one core doing traditional BMS stuff, another doing new terrain, and a third doing the layer. Think of it as a kind of wrapper, but for an engine within an engine.

BMS is awesome.

that is what I hope they do - it would be such a great idea and one that is almost a sure success.

Anyone knows latin or knows what this message is? They have it hidden in the page source smile

Well, the Google translate result is disappointing:

Quote
My sorrows to them in that any mistake through the rest of the we must be optimistic, to him, the use of epicuri say nothing of the satatus, so as not taught to aim for anything. To obtain the minimum abbreviation for that timeless


I don 't quite know what to make of that.

Its just text used as a placeholder.

Web designers commonly use old latin texts in estimating spacing of webpage text due to its rather uniform dispersion of text elements.
Its usually a piece of text repeated called Lorem ipsum

This obscure is not from the classic Lorem ipsum, may have been snipped from another page or whatnot.

This graphic is the main content:

The quote of Cicero translated is below
Quote
But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing of a pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?

On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammeled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse.
