I would definitely prefer the belly-up route in that case.

Yeah...we're already paying a lot more for modules than in other sims. Thinking about the 100s of dollars I gave ED, and that's just me. I'm not sorry I did so, don't get me wrong. But this should be enough for them to hold up their end of the bargain.

It's like a guy comes to you saying he will build you a house for X dollars. You pay him, then after 3 years you still don't have windows, and he would tell you that it's been 3 years, and it's tough for him to pay his contractors, etc... I'm sorry, but who cares? The deal was X dollars = house. Period. And then he would come to you with another offer to build a garage for Y dollars, and he could spend that money on finishing your house, but of course it just fills his time and he has even less resources for the first project. This is the feeling I get.

This being said, I'm happy to pay these high prices for DCS modules, as long as my house gets finished.

Some software producers now have a licensing scheme where you pay monthly or annual software license fees.

ED may soon face the choice to go that way - or go belly up.
Personally I wouldn't mind a recurring fee if that improved the quality. What do you guys think?
I think that's crap. Many many of us have supported ED over many years with purchases, from Flanker to Lock On to Flaming Cliffs to multiple DCS modules. If you go buy about any other PC game its going to run you $59-$69, maybe $89 for a special edition. How much does DCS, a couple of terrain packs, and 6 aircraft modules cost? Many times that. I know I personally have purchased some modules more than once just to help support ED and others have as well. There are guys here who have probably spent $1000 on ED products, or more. And ED is very good at milking the $$$ out of their products, i.e. separating the WWII Assets from the Normandy terrain pack. I strongly support ED and they deliver some great products, but timely follow through and communications have been problems here forever. My personal opinion is they need to focus on projects and complete them before starting other projects. There have been too many half-completed modules released that never get to the potential they should because ED or the module designer don't finish them.

It's not bs, its true, it was a feature request, its not a high priority, it was never a feature for the original module, it will happen when it happens. Rockets and Gun Pods were generally not widely used or available late in the war anyways.

For future reference, I dont bs you guys.

Closing this thread as some of you are heading towards a 1.10.

The 109 is complete as is. Rockets and Gun pods were not part of the original module features. So you are mad because you bought a house without a pool, and you expect them to add a pool for free because other houses have pools...

There is nothing unfinished about the 109, the 190, the P-51... you are getting free updates to these modules, and you are getting mad that you dont get your free updates fast enough. Its quite a warped look you have on what ED is doing.
