I would appreciate your corrections, as I said in the OP.

I for one fully agree with the rating of the M-2000C campaign

But in all honesty, a brilliant idea and well presented. I'll be watching the new additions with interest. Thanks!

i dont think reviewing a module before it's finished is really giving it a fair shake. I hope you plan on updating that review often.

I agree 100%, and that’s why a PG campaign MUST be a priority . Seriously, you brought the game to a whole new level, well deserved of the many Michelin stars

Lol. It’s from the actual Michelin Guide. Back in the day they put asterisks next to exemplary restaurants. Those asterisks turned into their distinctive “star.”

It's an interesting concept, but in my opinion, in it's present state it's very subjective.


A few comments:
- Some aircraft are not included.

- Fidelity: what's the reason to not award this to all non-FC3 aircraft? Granted, there are some in Early Access which are not feature complete and therefore not 100% fidelity in that regard, but I think it's the defining feature of DCS as a whole to offer "full fidelity" (within certain limits, obviously). I think that if you withold this rating, you should specify what is not correct or what is not modeled and why this is important to you.

- Complexity: this is not properly defined. Are you referring to cold start procedure, radar operations, combat, or a bit of everything? I would say that the Ka-50 is more complex than the Mi-8, unless you count the amounts of switches to flip during start-up.


- Modelling: this is a bit subjective...

- Stars: this is probably the most controversial aspect.
Personally:
Albatros: 3 stars for originality, joy of flying, multi-functionality, inclusion of two versions, campaign availability.
MiG-15: 2 stars for flight modelling, weapons modelling, campaign availability.
Viggen: 2 stars for systems modelling, flight modelling, campaign availability.


With regards to the star rating you would create a poll to try and eliminate the subjectivity.

It's funny, I had no idea the Michelin guide was even known outside of Western Europe
