Is there a way to make you're own things, then put them into PF? I heard its possible with CFS 2, so I was thinking, if you could do it with FB/AEP/PF, you could get a much larger community, as well as it being more fun.

Nope, totally closed code. Skins, missions, servers, and various "helper apps" are all that is possible. Open code means open season for cheaters, which is even less fun.

Geee.....that kinda sucks. Limits the possibilities, and limits peoples interests to missions, skins and the like. Perhaps the only bad thing bout this game.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

I agree, it sucks, but I also see the logic. I can't remember the times I was shot down in CFS2 by a biplane with 16 .50 cals on the wings, doing 487mph. It would be the same thing here, so I suppose the ones to blame are the bored children who think cheating is amusing. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Im not sure if you meant that you cant make your own skins and missions. <-- Those you can, you just cant add models and the like. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I used to fly in another closed-code flight sim - Dawn of Aces, Warbird's "little sister" - and I remember wishing that we could add some more aircraft. But DoA was notoriously unsupported by its owners, unlike the IL2 series which is constantly being revised and added to.

One guy managed to work out a simple cheat whereby his plane could disappear at critical moments and then reappear, usually on your 6. He was arena champion for months until someone found out and he received a hefty ban - and a lot of people felt pretty sore about the affair.
My point being that open-source coding would, as Frat says, lead to a cheats' feast which is something we could all do without.
