At times, we would actually prefer if we could update even faster than only every two weeks; this time was an exception to skip the update. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Any ETA on the FM fix? I can see todays window was missed.

We are still working on the perfomance tweaks but have to sort out some issues in the background first. (it would not help to go into more detail, as this does not concern functions visible to the player directly). We hope it will be soon, but unfortunately I cannot give you an ETA at this point. Please trust that work on improvements keeps running as we speak. Again, thank you for your very kind patience.

I think there was no window for today.
Hasn't Wags said that they will move to update the OB only every two weeks in future?
So we could expect the next update on Wednesday 22nd.

I'm fine if there is not every Update also an Update for the Cat is quality goes over speed. However, either there should be progress seeable, or good communication to the community.
So far, I'm personaly still very satisfied with HB. Keep on doing stuff with that awesome quality!
Quality over quantity!

Thank you. We will be more diligent in the future to keep you informed upfront whether we commit an update or not.

Thanks for your communication. Really appreciate it !

If I may ask ,i know it's the wrong thread but since you talked about FM update, will the F-14 perform better in dogfight after the FM update ? After an OB update, we felt the F-14 slightly... Harder to use in dogfight. I think there was a thread already around this but I didn't understood if, at terms, if the F-14 will be ''better'' or if it will stay like this.

Thanks and really sorry for the lack of precision and sources, currently writting my phone.

Good luck with your work.

Hard to answer the question, really, as it is difficult to know what your perspective would be regarding "better". What I can promise is that it will perfom more accurately (and that we will continue tweaking for accuracy).

It is most important to us to make it as close to real life as possible, which means we cannot give much thought to as what would give it an advantage or not, if that makes sense. I know it is a vague answer, but if she performs more according to specs I presume one could say, yes it will be better.

The best would be for fat creason (akodonell) to answer though. Also perfomance tweaking will continue for a while. Hope that is somewhat satisfying as answer.

I found the Viggen's changelog/update master list thread to be super helpful in the way it listed pending changes as well as patch notes for the current version.

Will it do better in the vertical post-patch?
