    I don't understand it either. Especially as it is not nearly as hard as making the latest photorealistic graphics, flight models and cockpits. Lowengrin's dynamic campaign generator started as a simple Visual Basic app for CFS2, and was light years beyond everything Microsoft had shipped.
    Just by using features that were already in the sim anyway. I think every flight sim should pay only 1 guy who does a campaign like Dynamix/Rowan, it would be no problem.
    For some reasons they always end up hiring 15 guys who all work on graphics, flight models and 3d cockpits. It's really hard to understand. They always channel all their resources into the flight sim, and the game (campaign) part becomes a mere afterthought.

    Over Flanders Fields does an amazing job by the way. I love how you always see things going on on the ground and in the air, just by using what was possible in CFS. Microsoft sims had immense potential, and it is strange that only 3rd party guys ever made use of it.

    The joke is on 777 I am afraid. Laying the groundwork to a worthy successor to IL2, and then ruin it with absolutely retarded things ..

    Luckily I did not preorder it. This was a result of the (equally lame) decision to stop selling the Basic Edition during early access.

    So I won't go through the gulag. I'm still young, and I can wait. I probably couldn't run it anyway.
    Perhaps next fall, when the promised SP campaign has materialized.

    I see no reason yet to bury the head in the sand. The monetization model for Rise of Flight changed several times. From always online drm to freeToPlay with the option to buy planes.

    Apparently this has the best flight model, so hopefully things turn around.

    EDIT:

    but probably not:

    And this Jason dude is the producer/moderator?
    :lol:
    No use how good you are, if you have such asshats. He probably starts snapping at you if you provoke him with a stick.
    On simhq they also claimed that it can only be the arcade model, then other people came and said it happens in Expert mode too.

    One thing I keep noticing in videos is that ppl are using turn and burn tactics until the enemy is in their sight.
    Planes also seem to accelerate like jets during takeoff. So I would not be surprised if the flightmodels are based on a fraction of the weight that the planes should have.

    What 777 is doing is a fine example of "Suicide from fear of death".
    They decided to make a successor of the most successful non-arcade flight sim, and that it would be as realistic as possible.
    But they are also afraid that there is no market for such a sim. So they decided that it must also be an arcade game.

    The only sim worth playing currently is wings over flanders fields, the graphics might not be the best and the flight model from the past era but it got the most servicable single player campaign. the new upate 2.0 that is coming soon is bringing new graphical tweaks and more stuff.


    If only this had the flight model and damage model of rise of flight it would be the best sim to this date, but alas it's running on cfs 3 engine.

    Yup, that is exactly what is happening. At the same time, they are throwing most of their pre-order customers under the bus. They also cannot seem to comprehend that MP is a massive thing for their playerbase, not SP.

    It has turned into first rate drama. If you're the type of person (and I know you are) who gets pleasure from seeing other people fail (especially people with inflated egos in the first place) this is a goldmine.

    And so on.

    I think only sacking CEO, PR people and moderators, and announcing a total new start could rescue this right now. But since it won't happen the game can be considered dead as a dodo.
    When people defend their decisions like that, they will still even stick to their stupid decisions. I have seen this happen before with certain garage type games that introduced always online DRM some years ago. They linger on with a few hundred people who are too ashamed to admit that they have been screwed, because people told them and they did not want to listen.

    Seems its better now




    There are 84 player servers and in the works there is a 24/7 online war where you can just jump in and jump out and the war continues without you. Just like in old il2 the old ADW wars those that remember them.

    . Gonna get this now probably, also the new expansion is coming out soon.

    Don't you read? The game was released half finished and the campaign is an unlock gulag.
    Also they pissed of 90% of the sim community and now a live in the ivory tower of their censored forums.

    I wonder how many years have to pass before they toss out the DRM.:roll:
