Could be all kind of things - maybe they don't feel comfortable posting in ENG as they're Russian developers? Maybe they don't have English-speaking representation (yet)? Maybe they're already active on the Russian side of the DCS forum and we're not aware on this end?

But yes, I overall still believe that Ugra 'owes' us at least that Normandy VR improvement that ED is doing for their own in-house developed maps, which would be a huge boost in trusting Ugra down the line for their products. I remain hopeful...

I'm not impressed with UM, atm. As ED's engine evolves, will UM update their maps to enable new features of the engine or will they leave them be? We have only Normandy to judge by now, so...

Based on their previous work and lack of commitment to making their sole product properly usable (FPS), I wont be purchasing the Syria map.

Agreed. This company has done nothing to make me think that they are capable of making a good product.

Agreed. A brief analysis revealed an incredible number of useless objects... wheelbarrows, old Renault vans and dust piles (?!). I can think of better objects to render.

I would assume that they have made great improvements based on lessons learned and it will incorporate all of the improvements ED has made to the engine. It is a fantastic theater with great potential and I would really love to fly on this map.

Unfortunately it is the proven track record of no customer support that will keep me from purchasing the map until they make some attempt to prove that they will be responsive. The map may be the best one available but what happens as ED introduce technological improvements? Will UGRA update the map to incorporate those improvements? Their track record so far and their silence on the official forums says no and ED has repeatedly stated that it is not their responsibility and it is up to the third party to make updates to their product.

I live in dread of finding out that when ED introduce Vulkan that the Normandy map will be broken and will not be fixed.

Intriguing. Fingers crossed!

I'm sorry to say this is another example of what happens when ED don't have sufficient control of its 3rd parties, as with the Hawk. Hopefuly this will have a better outcome. We know ED have changed their approach for the future and perhaps UGRA will respond better to that. (I didn't even know it was a 3rd party item)

There is news of updates to the map out today on Facebook! Very welcome indeed. Hope to hear more about rough timescales at some point.
