Default ** F-14 Stick! **

Hi Everyone!

As our engineering team heads back from the U.S. (and their live F-14 pilot demo and feedback session) - the art team is busy as ever behind the scenes. Every single placeholder model and texture is being replaced by production level artwork. Here's a sneak peek at the pilots' stick. We can't wait to fully unveil your new office!

We've been pretty lackluster with the meatier, detailed text based updates as of late; instead focusing on smaller Facebook tidbits. We'll try to do a bigger, more detailed update soon to give you all a detailed rundown on where the F-14 project stands and our current release projections.

Thanks for all of your support!

Looking more real than real.
I have an annoying question, is Q4 early access still on the table or we can expect a delay?
Top job

They look amazingly good. I have high hopes for the rest of the module - it looks like we'll be in for a huge treat!

Direct Lift Control, I believe.
