This is a little bit confusing since Heatblur said they will have animated flight deck on the Forrestal Class carrier. How will this work? I hope we can land the F/A-18 on the Forrestal and the F-14 on the Nimitz! I wish they all pooled resources and just did it right for both.

You have a hook and launch bar on both aircraft, I don't see why you couldn't land whatever aircraft you wanted on what ever carrier you wanted...

Because this is not real life with real life physic. This is a software which needs compatible interfaces between the various components.

Currently it seems like ED, Heatblur and RAZBAM are all developing their own carrier tech with animated crew and all that stuff. That is worrying me as well, not just because of possible incompatibilities, but also because it's an ineffective use of ressources

I hope that the payware / freeware carrier situation won't be the same as Normandy map and the asset pack with units.

Judging that there are pictures of F/A-18s on Forrestals I would assume that it would work.

I'm guessing the non-paying players will see the carriers, but won't be able to land on in anything but the most basic way. A hook, a cat, and possibly parking slots?

Well, then I hope they will be aware of it and the elevators to the hangar deck won't be blocked by players that try to figure out how to use them when they can't

Great with new carriers but I hope they fix the bugs on Carl Vinson first actually as that is the one everyone have.

I think competition is a good thing for the game.
