Default The Hawk

Not wanting to harp on about why the hawk got removed and the fact that a lot of people actually paid money for that particular module. I don't want a refund, all I want to do is fly the plane. Would it not be possible to reinstate the module but only in beta. I have noticed that the module is still part of the core mod folder but is not available anywhere to fly. Would it not be possible just to have it available in DCS World Beta version please.

No, because in the end the skin and cockpit would just...slowly disappear over successive patches because the .dll's never got updated.

You can fly Hawk in DCS 2.5.3.

No. The Hawk was not removed/disabled. ED were unable to keep it in the sim due to them not having access to the required source code files for the module. The DRM for the module requires it to be re-compiled for every new build of DCS. Once 2.5.4 went live it was no longer possible to keep it in the sim in it's playable form.

As far as I have understood it, ED wanted to do exactly this but veao didn't want to sell/give anybody the rights to maintain it. Additionally it is extremely hard to work with the borked code of somebody else.

I'd imagine it isn't theirs to sell. Despite their claims of grand investors I presume all VEAO assets are now the property of their creditors.

If that were the case I would imagine that their creditors would be eager to sell. However, their lawyers might not be so eager if they think a better deal could be made elsewhere. Especially if Chris and Pete have no funds to pay said lawyers.

Who'd be mad enough to want to buy such a garbage module even if they could.
