Well, if it was truely a new game, I think it would have caught on, but it seems to be F/A18 PSF with new scenery and a few visual improvements. PSF promised a lot and was little more than a re-hash of Hornet Korea. The lack of a dynamic campaign is a killer. Just playing missions is fun, but it is so much better when there is a campaign, preferably dynamic in nature. Just my two cents.

I had actually offered to build a campaign generator, which would have been capable of doing semi-dynamic campaigns (next mission based on results of previous mission and other "war" factors) or a linear campaign (won't let you proceed until you finish the current mission).

Pretzel was extremely helpful, but I also contacted Graphsim for help and got no response. The offer still stands, but I have a lot less time to work on it now since I've got several other projects going on.

It would be a fun little project. Maybe something will come of it....someday. ;\)

When it turned out to be nothing more than Hornet 3.0 in 3D with a textured database and new user interface............

Still a fun sim but aged as to its realism and containing many of the same problems that were found in Hornet 3.0 and Hornet Korea (also PSF). :rolleyes:

Airfoil, a campaign generator would be great, but I hear you. Not getting a response from GraphSim sure is frustrating, especially when something very positive could come out of it. I do hope they do get in touch with you, as this would be a great addition to this sim.
