Hey, never mind Pretzel. It's all been tried before and by people much smarter than I'll ever be, no need for me to waste anymore time even thinking about it.
Ya know, when I started flight simming again in mid-'03 (with JetFighter IV [if you call that "simming"], and then PSF), what I was really searching for was a "replacement" to Microprose's F-117, the only flight sim I'd played until then. And BOY did I play the heck out of that sim!
It's just now occurring to me (almost three years later) that TAW was always that logical replacement to those Microprose stealth sims. It boggles my mind why I haven't realized that until now, even after messing around with the TAW demo the past couple of years. I must be slow, eh?
Anyway, my search for flight simming Nirvana has finally ended except that I hope one day we get another Hornet Korea with some real improvements. I'll always keep an eye on this board for just such a thing, although I've moved my rambling to another board.
