Oh well, I guess its better than waiting for a bugged product. Please, Oleg, help us in this time of disappointment by releasing the update ASAP.

To avoid the frustration of misfortune,

whats the hurry? as with any other game, it will need a patch to work properly. the patch will be delayed for several months, only to be titled as 'beta' etc etc etc.

i dont even get excited about games anymore.

I may just pick it up as a benchmark for if/when I finally get a decent pc. Of course, been flying modern sims as well for years and I love the F-15C and A-10. The one thing about LOMAC that is appealing to me is that it at least seems that they have finally listened as to the shortcomings of the Flanker series. The sound was not great, the ambiance not great, the campaign size not wonderful, etcetera. yet it was arguably the better flight model of the genre. It was a sim, but not a great experience. If you were into straight simulation without much ambiance, it was your bag of beans. If you wanted a little bit of uuuumph to take you there, it was a little dry is the best way to describe it. (Flanker 2 in particular) It seems like theyve boosted the interface now, the sound, the ambiance overall. For that, I applaud them. Im not talking dumbing something down or making it easy, im talking... once your done with the sim part of a combat flight sim, you really need to add ambiance. And that doesnt mean just 'new' graphics utilization of the latest directX API, it should mean.... the little things we hold dear like in IL2 and other sims. Even medium core, even LIGHT core sims, if you add a good amount of the 'little things', it adds up. If im in a mid core sim that has a lot more uuumph (even if overdone) it can be infinitely more enjoyable then a balls out hardcore sim that hasnt taken any time to "take you there". IL2, is above the rest, in that its hard core, yet it takes you there on so many levels, its insane. Ill be honest, its got parts it still can improve on (gassssp!) ... but, they are slowly moving towards those areas that need a little pick me up. (the campaign which is greatly improved now, and by looking at VEF2 format, im sure a great deal of that will make it into the 'next sim')

Well, thats my thoughts on sims today... even though this is a lomac thread.

Allthough I don't like to wait even longer to get my hands on LOMAC (it was supposed to be released last year, remember) I still think this is a good thing. It shows that the developpers want to take their time to release a good, (almost) bug-free product. I respect them for that. I really don't want to go through the whole falcon 4 (or more recently Strike fighters) experience again.

And you're surprised? It was first advertised with teh original IL2 and was supposed to come out like right after it. 2 or 3 years ago!!!

Ubi seemed very optimistic in their announced release dates for FB. If Lock On is in any way similar then I wouldn't expect to see anything before early summer 2004.
