I mean how are we to get any fresh meat... err, I mean cannon fodder... errr, shooting practice... err, never mind, you know what I mean http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

If you're going to be nasty you'll scare them away, and then they will not buy a PC, joysticks, TIR and will never join the real boys. We've all have been bitten by the 'upgrade bug' type thingy

Yes, I guess this is a small reference to me. Or maybe not.

Sure, we shouldn`t be too hard on them and I guess I was. Next time I`ll tell him that to be Supreme Master he can play against easy Ai with all realism settings set to off, WW view and Unlimited ammo until he decides he wants to fly like in real life in 5 years.

That`ll keep `em coming.

5 years of that and the bad habits will be so ingrained he may -never- fly right even for sim.

There is no becoming real on any PC sim I've heard of yet.

yes, yes, I know the real or not real argument, but for the sake of this topic I needed to keep to the very basics. And no, I`m not going to argue about every single word I use.

I must have missed something, but...

The so-called "realistic(tm)" combat sims should be designed around both arcade and the realistic(tm) gameplay, possibly under different titles so people could pay more to upgrade, although that would make it a little bit harder for the arcade players to try out the realistic(tm).

The point being that a vast number of arcade players may be attracted to the arcade side, and as they learn more, trade up.

The popularity of the arcade version with the vast numbers of arcade players would easily pay for continued development of both the arcade and realistic(tm) versions, much like Offline play pays for Online play in FB/PF, and how many Offline players eventually trade up and go online for new human side vs blue side experience.

But there is a danger. With the vast numbers of arcade buyers paying for the sim, The Devs might get in in their mind to simply abandon the realistic(tm) side of the game. Perhaps, make that more expensive if its a different upgrade version.

He will still get the bad habits to fly right for IL2, even at less than full switch.

Unless that is objectionable?
