Speculation on my part - It's possible that Belsimtek got pretty close with the F4, and were working on getting their AI to work (that much we know), but that while the new AI was a step forward from the Autopilots of the Huey and Mi-8, it was still in that vein.
Then when they came back in-house - & with the F-14 out - it was decided that the AI & interface wasn't going to compare well as it was then concieved, so they have put aircraft that need that functionality (aircraft that need a full RIO / WSO) on hold until E.D. have a version of that kind of AI that will compare favourably with the Jester.

Edit:
Not sure how that fits with the M-24, but maybe that was too close to ready & too anticipated to make sense to sit on it, & maybe they figure we can get by with a better autopilot. Maybe we'll see how the new AP came out.

Sorry for any confusion.

Thanks
Disappointing. Been after Vietnam era aircraft for a long time.

In my bizarre alternate universe, I thought there might be people that were interested in either the AH-1, or the F-4, but not both, and so might not read both threads (personally I could care less about the AH-1 (waiting eagerly for the Hind ;-), and only posted in this thread by accident, but there you go...).

Ridiculous thought I know - obviously every reader of the Forums reads every post in every thread....

Without being a dick, I would like to know a little bit more about the "politics" involved in making those desicions. At least I have never read a statment like: "Ah, damn it, we need more WWII planes"


Instead the modules I read the most requests about are getting delayed and delayed. Makes no sense to me. Don't get me wrong, I'm convinced that there are a lot of people for WWII planes as well, but I bet they are not the the majority.



I just feel a lack of communication when it comes to new modules, maps, or whatever. It's always like: "ok, here is a little something to get you guys excited, but we will see what we do with it." Whats missing are clear statements and a clear roadmap of whats to come in the near (or distant) future.



There are so many modules in development, every developer is talking through different channels, facebook, blogs - you name it. You get Infos from ten different sources and can than figure it out by yourself and take an educated guess on whats going to happen.



If I could have a wish @Eagle Dynamics or @Wags - Get all those third party developer at one table, work out a roadmap and f.... stick to it.



I guess there is little more the community wants more that simply not beeing left in the bloody dark.

Yes. But its unofficial again. ED has to release something like that. Don't get me wrong, I'm shure that was a lot of work, but I missing official statements. Something that is reliable and not mostly build on guesswork, because I found that "is it, is it not" very confusing.

They're working on it:
Quote:
In the past, modules sort of faded through phases of being supported very actively to support getting sparser. While I think this is a natural consequence of modules costing a finite amount of money, do you see a way of making it more transparent to users how long these phases last and what phase a module is currently in?
Wags: We are working on a public tracking page that will allow users to view the status of each product, items being worked on, and our best date projections. We hope this level of transparency will remove the mystery of product states and general direction of the company and its workload for both modules and core engine.

Good to know. I just don't get why thats not been done long ago. I my view thats an excel list that needs to be updated once a month by an office worker who calls everyone simply asking: "How's it going?". In the words of mastermind Jeremy Clarkson: How hard can it be?
