+1

The mod gets more attention and we had more servers to fly it online.
But not as an ED module, more as an 3party Def. Module.
So that it stay as an comunity thing

Since ED is moving away from SFM modules it is very unlikely.

I'm fairly sure that that wouldn't be as easy as a lot of people think, not entirely from a technical and quality control point of view, but rather for legal reasons.
A mod that is made by members of a community in their spare time and for no profit is okay-ish (it could face challenges, but it's in a bit of a grey area and chances are it flies under the radar), but a simulation of an aircraft that is included in a commercial simulator - in other words: somebody (ED) aims to turn a profit with it - does need a licence or at least a proper permission from the company owning the rights to it.

I wish they would just add the 3d model with SFM as AI, similar to other models someone doesn't own.

That would mean servers can enable it for players who use it, and players who don't, would see the correct 3d model.... I would love to use the A-4 on the BF servers...

Well what Kang said, plus it'd need more work since it'd really need an ASM/PFM. Which, again, would probably raise a question of having to charge for it later...

Before ED can decide about that, the devs of the A-4 would have to actually want to make this a true DCS module. I don't know if they want that.

I hope "get licensing" isn't that hard.
