RAZBAM DCS and old RAZBAM FSX (which was two guys, part-time) is like night and day.

I'm satisfied with everything they -- and DCS are doing. It's all an immense undertaking, and the results have been spectacular.

I think that given complexity of today's bar in aircraft simulation, I think we won't see any bug-free feature complete simulated aircraft anywhere soon. I do not see any module in DCS stable, which would be much better than Mirage 2000, even A-10C has a fair share of its problems (like something as fundamental as cockpit lights does not work, making it nearly impossible to fly at night, formation lights, CCIP mode problems, etc.). Even simple FC3 aircraft have a lot of really long standing bugs, which have been there for more than 5 years (CCRP problem with Su-25A, autopilot in Su-25T, texture bugs, etc. etc. etc.). Viggen is still getting a lot of substantial fixes, F-14 will be no different. Simulating these complex systems is often as difficult as designing/reverse engineering them and we need to be tolerant here and expect bugs/problems/missing features and I've learned to enjoy what I have. You would be surprised that also real aircraft are full of "bugs" and systems problems which take years to solve and some even remain unresolved as far as my experience goes in aircraft industry and avionic (AFCS) systems. I also applaud RAZBAM for what it is doing and I hope they will continue to bring us some more interesting (eastern) aircraft like Mig-23ML and I will support them as much as I can in order to keep our niche high fidelity sim market alive and diverse.

so where does the Razbam F15E fit since its not on the roadmap?

theyve been showing off new HD textures of 3d modelling aspects of the F15E within the past few months.

I’m a loyal customer and enjoy RAZBAMs products but I think there is more going on than just a couple of bugs here and there.
The M2000 midlife upgrade revealed that the module had some serious discrepancies with the original from start especially in avionics and systems modeling. This is more serious than “a small bug”.

The harrier looks like it was gobbled up so that it barely worked then pushed out the door with little work since. Sure it’s fun and I get to blow stuff up because it has most of its weapons but the avionics and systems department has some teething bugs or omissions since day 1...

DCS’ main selling point over any other sim out there is the fidelity of the avionics and the flight model and eventually I’d like to get what I paid for and no I don’t agree with the excuse that all the bugs are there because ED are changing the core coding of the game all the time.

Having said that I still support RAZBAM and will be a day 1 customer on the Mig19 despite my reservations.

I understand some peoples concern however the Mig19 is a much simpler aicraft in terms of avionics than anything else razbam has done within DCS. Its a largely analog plane without any modern electronics or other highly complex features found in modern aircraft. So id like to thnk Mig19 will be in a very playable state upon release , have most if not all features working and for the team having an easier time to fix bugs.

What ED does well, they do better than everyone else, but there is so much BS, broken promises, and bugs that it pretty quickly doesn’t become worth it to me. Sorry for the rant here. We’ll see what 2019 brings I guess.
Thanks for the perspective. What I'm starting to see the high level of ambition (fidelity, and the list of features) combined with the high cost of development may be something of a problem. It's difficult to develop and maintain (how long? 10 years or more?) the software with single-sale revenue stream.

I was not referring to the Mig19 exclusively, but the whole “policy” that RB seem to follow.
Also it appears ED agrees with me and the others and has stepped in halting MiG19s release until it reaches a satisfactory state. Let’s hope mistakes of the past are not repeated.

+1 .....With the difference that I will not buy the Mig-19 ...


And even if I'm interested in the Mirage 2000C I will not buy it until it's actually the airplane it's supposed to be, best wishes for the Harrier too ...
