The standard caveat (if you don't know what it means, look it up!) from Oleg about every patch release is that the date is not promised. He has explained time and again that the reality (look that one up too, it's got something to do with not always being just what you want) of development is that something wrong may show up that requires further change. So there are and never have been any firm release dates just because Maddox Games would rather have it as right as possible.

Code isn't like painting a wall. You can't say "it took this long to cover half so the whole will be done at this time". Only people who have no idea or are MORONS try to set firm deadlines for anything but the simplest creative tasks of any kind. You can't rush art, you only produce mediocre crap that way -- go look at anything Microsoft has ~cranked~ out if you really need to understand, unless you'd rather put in a few years in the industry yourself. Any good sim or game is a form of art and not some paint by numbers job.

People like you remind of the WORST customers I ever had.

As someone with an IT background I can somewhat relate to what WWMaxGunz wrote.

What some say is "wrong" others say is "right" there is never 100% customer satisfaction, 80% is a miracle /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif .

Programming a flightsim for the consumer market is a tradeoff between usability and realism. Hell, NO CONSUMER LEVEL flightsim really models all the factors according to scientific laws. To run a fully realistic simulation you must have actual physics modeled, i.e. aerodynamics, thermodynamics, etc., plus joe schmoe wants it to look good.

Unless you wanna shell out tens of thousands on supercomputers, and buy a simulation for a few thousand more it WILL have flaws, and WILL NOT BE perfect.

In short quit yer whinnin' folks.
