There are a lot of "holes" in the combat flight sim landscape right now. If you could have one new such sim today, which of the listed most interests you? If the list doesn't cover yours go ahead and vote for the one closest and then explain what you really would like to see. Personally I haven't even decided which one I want most...

Which do you wish for the most:
single choice

Great topic - only popped into my head the other day as found the 30th anniversary of Gulf War 1 mod for Strike Fighters 2 was released. I downloaded it and it scratches the itch for me.

On a similar note - what aircraft do I wish had a devoted sim for it? For me it's either the Tornado GR1, F-111F or B-1B.

What I wouldn't give to play a sim devoted to either of them - not even a study sim, something less complex than DCS for me would be so good if a good campaign was included.

Absolutely I want a WWII Mediterranean/North Africa flight sim. I want to fly Italian planes dang it!

I assume you played the Tornado sim by Digital Integration? I played the heck out of that.

Yeah that was an awesome sim.

DANG. I have painted myself into a corner... I cannot see the results because I have not voted.... and I cannot decide between Vietnam and WWII PTO!!!

OK I voted for the closest to the outcome I am most looking forward to actually - the new B-17 sims on their way. I know The Mighty Eighth released recently but I've held off that - even though I had very good times with it in the past - because the redux is not too much different from what I already have. That might change I guess we'll see.

But I'm really looking forward to that game in VR. I don't know to what extent it will be VR'd, maybe we can clamber in & around the vehicle, maybe not and we just switch playable positions. I hope for the former, that alone would make me happy to be able to do that. Coupled with flying, navigation, gunnery & the Norden handling should keep me busy for a good while, I also hope for it to support single-player.

The upcoming 100th - I don't know if that will be sufficiently different but maybe it's got a longer development cycle and so will have correspondingly more content & abilities.

Yeah I loved that and the GW add-on. But I want that with nowadays tech.

I tried it on an emulator recently and I couldn't get back into it.

Yep I too played the heck out of the DI Tornado sim on the Amiga. And I did read about a week ago that someone is developing a DCS module for it, early stages yet though. Will be a few years before we see it.

I can certainly understand that considering that the sim was released in 1993! As for any hopes for a new Tornado sim, I really don't see it happening unless a third party developer makes a Tornado module for DCS.

I voted for Korean War. This brief period between props and missiles is such an interesting intersection. MiG vs Sabre is a dissimilar, yet evenly matched, sort of thing that is endlessly interesting. Asymmetric.

Gunzo jets is my vote.

It's a 5 way tie thus far!

I voted Vietnam because I am excited about the DCS Phantom, but I am equally jonesing for a PTO sim.... which no one has voted for frown

The DCS Phantom will be nice but I want a complete full-fledged VIetnam sim which means Vietnam maps, at least 2-3 flyable planes (from both sides) and a pilot career mode.

I would love boosted AI in Battle of Stalingrad(and companions) along with a Wing Commander style wrapper, dynamic campaign included.

That'd be sweet.

Toss in the Pacific theater with some ground branches (after bailing out) for rescue/survival/etc. for extra spice. All with the same level of fidelity that BoS/Rise of Flight set. We don't need full real switchology like DCS for this to work.

As a Brit I wanted a Falklands conflict but we know how that ended ( Jet Thunder, not the war itself).

I decided to vote Korean War.

Absolutely. And an F-105... you cannot do Vietnam without the Thud.

Korea is my tope tier two choice, after my tier one tie of Vietnam/PTO.

I would dearly love an updated Persian Gulf campaign for Microprose F-117. The hours I poured into that was insane.
