New planes are good and fine, but the Tempest is going to be an AI-only plane? I remember seeing a near-complete Tempest cockpit in a development update quite a while ago. Does this really mean it's been scrapped?

You saw a near-complete cockpit, not a complete one. It's not flyable until it's cockpit is finished.

Yeah, currently the Tempest will not be flyable but the Dev. Updates are not set in stone. I hear the Tempest Team is currently putting the final finishing touches on the pit. You may get to fly her yet..../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif


EDIT: Whoopsy,looks like she won't be flyable in time for the Jan. add-on after all. Just saw the "update" of sorts on Netwings by Alex.....

I really hope the Tempest is flyable. Is one of my all time favorites. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Just saw the update from Alex (who is making the Tempest) on Netwings. The Tempest will be AI only in expansion pack and will be made flyable at a later date. Apparently the deadline for the expansion pack is coming soon and it would be impossible for him and Hammerd to finish the cockpit on time. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Still, I'm just grateful (thanks guys) that it will be flyable eventually and it makes things easier for my 190. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

"88 keys" jippo01 and others have dropped hints that another addon is planned after the January addon.

Dispointing but understandable...I guess I'll have to be hunting some FW190's at a later date...

So it will be flyable? That's GREAT! It really doesn't matter how long it takes. I was only concerned that what looked like a beautiful piece of cockpit work had somehow been abandoned.

Its at 90% apparently. Close yet so very far away. We'll see it yet methinks!

The cockpit as it was in the images above was only about 70% complete, and also many parts were reworked since then.
If we eliminate the reworked parts, i would say it was only 50% complete.
