Little by little, they prepare us for B.o.B.
Wonder if every patch will contain small amounts of BoB'ish Flight model?
If so, its a good thing so we get acustomed slowly and get a peek at same time.
It has been a fantastic jurney and development so far.
I like what they did in 404. Smooth, air'ish. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
Personaly I hope we get even more torque effect so it's possible to get thrown out of the climb or turn when slow or on top of the climb.

It's great for us long term experienced simmers, but there've been a few threads recently in the PF forum that give some idea of just how daunting a truly realistic flight sim would be to someone completely new to flight. It is not the sort of game that appeals to casual gamers which is to our detriment.

It is for this reason that I'm glad Maddox Games have chosen to make the difficulty settings so scalable. As much as the "reality" proponents will scoff at those using easy settings, for those new to this genre and with little prior knowledge of flight those modes are verging on essential given that there's no really useful tutorials or training aircraft in the manual or the game itself.

While I agree with Tully about new folks being intimidated by the flight model, I await the day that slamming the throttle forward in a Corsair on final will roll it over on it's back. It's not everybody's cup 'o tea, but the more realistic, the better I like it.

I can't wait to see what BoB will bring! Thanks for all the good work, Oleg & team!

I am with Tully and vocatx... and you too Ob.. I think it is great the way thois sim is developing. Even now this thing is so scalable you can go from cant die, cant crash, kill everythimg with one shot plus radar... to hair raising, watch those temps, head on a swivel, better get closer one shot black screen of death. I think it is fantastic. In my opinion the only way for this genre to really survive and keep attracting new blood.. is, scalability i=on the samne curve as realism. The more realistic the more scalable te sim will have to be. Then they will sell themselves...... anyone worth thier salt will love it for the challenge alone... one of the reasons in fact i would say the main reason why this series is so popular is because of it's complexity, and it's scalability to reach back to the fliers who arent used to the more challenging settings.. yet having enough umph to keep the hardcore diehard experienced simmers craving as much immersion as they can get satisfied..

And ditto here. The complexity issue reminds me of Falcon 4. It is what keeps that community thriving. Always seeking to get the immersion factor upped. Although I do find IL makes you pay more attention to what your bird is trying to tell you. That is a plus, mind you. Really looking forward to what the future of this franchise brings us.
