Replace "I'm convinced" by "I want to believe".


I wouldn't be surprised if they say that they wish the MiG-21 module had never existed.

Not only that. Some of the bugs and fixes needed are very simple. Some of them with a couples of hours of work time.

I doubt they have any coders left tbh... Anyway I partly blame heatblur for the MiG-21 as well, after all, many of the issues that exist have been there for years, long before the split. Heatblur could well man up and buy back the rights for the MiG-21 and finish it.

I'm beginning to think the Mig-21 would certainly be in better hands there. They did a stellar job of the Viggen and the Tomcat looks to be shaping up nicely.

I mean no offence to Leatherneck/Magnitude, but the communication here has been minimal at best. Teams like Razbam and Heatblur are very open about their progress. Even Aviodev, despite their slow progress, have been honest and upfront.

I really hope the Mig-21 will continue to be supported.

The problem is no one would spend money to buy the rights to a product that is not generating revenue...
To be fair, I think the MiG-21 should be a very popular module, but probably many people in this community already have it, not sure how much more there is to chew.
It would be great if someone could buy it, fix it for good and re-launch it (of course we already paid, so we just need to be delivered the product we bought...not pay for it again)

Nobody that worked on the Mig-21 works for Heatblur, apart from Cobra which, IIRC only worked on the art. HB isn't to blame for anything.

My guess stands true for most 3rd party DCS dev teams: they've got shovels of artists, yet next to no programmers. Feels like M3 only has half of a programmer (probably working part time). Same thing applies for Razbam. They've got a ton of announced modules with artwork being done, but system programming goes at a slow pace.

Anyway, there's way too many long standing issues with the -21. People praise them when they release their bi-annual patches because it fixes 2-3 problems just because we're not used to seeing any updates from their part.
