Does anyone know what happened to the WW1 sim
Knights of the Sky?
I saw something on line saying the wing fell off,
but that was a year ago. Surely, a sim with that much promise
would be back on it's feet by now.
Any news on this or any other high quality WW1 flying sim?

Last I heard they were looking for a western publisher.

That was the first flight sim I ever had - the one that got me into this madness. Crikey! Where does the time go?

KOTS was awesome, still have it to this day, in fact, I still use it from time to time, thanks to a program called DOSBOX (dos emulation)

But it wasn't my first sim, that place is taken by F-19 Stealth Fighter

I agree, it was great. I recall the campaigns, they were great and immersive, including what happened if you got shot down. And it shipped with a GREAT hardcopy manual.

Games used to be great. Now it's all about eyecandy, and online play. Good gameplay (to say nothing of good box contents) is a thing of the past. It sucks really.

But you don't have to play that - unless you just love it for some particular reason. You can get your kite flying fix on something more modern that looks MUCH better and is a pretty serious flight sim physics engine to boot (rumor has it Oleg even considered it for IL2 but found it was too CPU intensive for what he wanted to do).

It even works with Hyperlobby. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Those two have their hands in each others' pockets... guaranteed.
