Default Clarify things

Ok - just to clarify things.
I am no more under control of the BO-105. It will be a joint venture with a 3rd party and me. Again. the BO-105 is in the pipe but we all need to wait until she's in the first row. I'm also not happy with this situation but that's life -> unforseen stuff always lurking in the background. Furtheron - I'm not a coder. If I was, she would already been released. ED code is very special and it needs 1 Year+ to understand all it's functions and how to get things work properly. The only solution is that one have to contact an experienced team which is familiar with the code.
I cannot say it often enough - Please be patience

Thank you very much for the Info, it's good to hear that the BO-105 will not stay a dream but get real one day!

So the bottomline is, things are going well. The BO-105 is contracted with a third Party, that knows DCS and how to do the code, the model and visuals are ready.
The only drawback is we need to wait, until the projects schedule of that 3rd party allow for taking on the code for the BO-105 and given that the model is ready, it likely does not take as long to finish it...

This is good news! Still love to see this childhood dream coming alive in DCS.

Fingers crossed, it doesn't take too long until we see an official announcement.

Sounds great Fragger!

Are you able to say, if the different announced Versions are still remaining in the actual Plan?

Looking absolutely forward to this Module!

Thank you for keeping up on this und schöne Grüsse!

Thanks for the update! I really appreciate such updates as they give us some orientation on the projects current status.
I don't know if you can tell us, but I wonder if the 3rd party dev is one of the established 3rd parties of DCS or if it is a new one?
Anyways, I hope the cooperation works out well for you and that we will be able to get our hands on this bird in the end


Edit: I think I found the answer to my question after re-reading you posting:

That sounds like it is one of the current 3rd party devs.

I guess that depends on the point of view. As Fragger himself said, he's not happy with the current situation, which is not really what I would translate into "things are going well", but they are progressing at least

From what I read into the post the alternative would have been to further look for a partnership and prolonging the project even more.

And I take any kind of delay over a cancellation of this baby!

Let's hope they can take it on sooner than later... :innocent:
