Summer time......complex system....I don’t believe it anymore. I think Ed has other priorities
Not sure how Wags making tutorial videos for an upcoming module correlates to all the the other developers ceasing their work on the Hornet.

The latest weekend news only confuses even more.

ED mentions Walleye II and Harpoon being a priority....but why exactly are these now priorities? What about a TGP you can actually aim?
What about improvements to JDAM?
Improvements to NAV System? We haven’t even got markpoints.
Finish HARM modes?
The data cartridge functions previewed 8 months ago?
Lots of missing radar HOTAS commands?
TWS?

All of these are more important than Walleye. If work continues on these unmentioned systems, then why not mention it. Why not communicate on items that the community actually feels are a priority?
My fear now is that ED will continue to work its way down the published weapons list, half implement all of them, then call Hornet development a day. I appreciate the weekend news, but it does little to actually reassure. Sorry.

How do you even reach that conclusion?? Its mind-boggling, nothing in the history of ED hints to them leaving an unfinished module to extents you are describing. Unbelievable.

Yes, maybe harsh, but time (and probably lots of it) will tell won’t it. We shall see.

Systems aside, key features of the damage model, like damage due to G etc are still not implemented aswell....

I wouldn't be discouraged by some of the negative posters. The Hornet module is awesome and very well done. They have made good progress and have told us they are currently working on some more complex systems so any perceived slowdown in feature updates is completely explainable. The opinion that their priorities are elsewhere is also not factual. ED has explained that they are now using a modular approach to development. So teams working on systems for the Viper have already completed their Hornet responsibilities.

If your considering it get the Hornet and enjoy it! It's pretty awesome and only going to get better when we get the upcoming ED Full Fidelity Carrier!

it's not negative, it's realistic. the hornet is an EA module which is not finished and of which much work remains. there is no planning, so no one knows how long it will take. you just have to know that before buying.

I currently have 93 hours logged in the Hornet, and I payed 60 bucks for. Thats 64 cents per hour of great entertainment so far, and Im not planning on stopping yet .
