I would love to see that same open door policy to third-party developers be extended to MAC. Bet we could see some pretty interesting things.

Will we see planes that can't be modelled in DCS World due to confidentiality of systems and performance data?

I don't think that's beyond the realm of the possible.

I think it will be simplified models of the full module planes that we already have.

Nineline - Maybe this is info you cant share, but will fidelity be similar to FC3? Or even "lighter"?

I see. That means that will be just a arcade mode polished to be at Ace combat level or so. Killed my expectations

I'm sure this will not be the case.

Well that is a fear right? Kindof like the 'simple avionics' for the Ka-50... the decision to have fewer button presses will also mean a major sacrifice of realism (and the modelling details/gameplay quality that goes with it) on the assumption that players who don't use clickable cockpits are people who wouldn't notice...

...that and fear of the abandonment of support for the FC3 aircraft...

i dont know, while i spend far more time playing DCS, ive found IL-2 is a lot more fun. DCS is more satisfying in terms of mastering a skill. the IL2 planes are FC3 level low-fi and i find it a more fitting comparison in that there is some degree of historic fidelity. ace combat series (i remember playing it on the original playstation) makes no attempts at realism beyond the appearance of the aircraft...much like the Area88 comics from the 80s? 90s?
