If I read one more freaking post about LOMAC, a WWI sim, or how badly the .50 cal. is undermodeled, I will be forced to roll my eyes while saying "sheesh".

What's worse, I could even end up pounding my desk close-fisted in frustration.


Please don't make me do it!

What about the newest FW complaint - is that one ok??


I know what you mean - I have never seen such a group of whinners - I seen people post their age - and their next post makes me wonder if they lied about their age?????

The overmodelled FW190 roll has caused such a state of hysteria you would think Orson Welles just announced aliens had landed in upstate New York.

I need to find some 1950s era movie posters of people running and screaming.

Hey personally, I am looking forward to LOMAC !!

Cant wait to see another decent jet sim make it.
I was hoping (beyond belief it seems) that it
would have a dynamic campaign, but alas....
I'll just have to live with it the way it is.

Be nice to have something other than Falcon 4 SP 3
to fly around in. And the A 10 sure looks nice !!!!


Feel better now ??

LO-MAC will suck. Look at the debates over planes that have been in the public domain for decades. Modern jets are all classified in terms of their performance (well, most would be I'd imagine). It will be little more than a pretty arcade game.

WWI sims rock. Those kites were flown by real men! Cloth planes with lots of fuel, open pits, sketchy engines, and little armor shooting at each other with no parachutes. And of course, a flying dutchman showed the world how to make fighters. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif Doesn't mean anything, but still cool. lol



190Fan - The more I look at your sig, the more pissed I get at Oleg and this crap with the La's vs the 190s. I see almost no difference between those RL 190s and the FB Las. I do see a disparity between those RL 190s and the FB 190s though. Funny how a plane reknowned for excellent fit and finish, clean lines, and low drag, can have so much E bleed. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

I disagree. While many things are indeed classified, its typically the full extent of a piece of capability in the jet rather than its flight models. With Flanker 2.5 in mind, one of the most realistic jet sims of its day, its hard to suggest that the same team would dumb down the flight models. Modeling a jet sim is going to be harder than a WWII sim thats for sure...the large numbers of electronics that need to be modeled...often using declassified data and a bit of imagination to fill in the blanks.

I doubt LoMac will suck. It may quite possibly be the best jet sim we've seen yet.
