Since the FPS is largely related to the graphics and not the underlying switchology, I doubt it.

I wonder how this will work added MAC aircraft in the ME... will it be a checkbox for say the MiG21 or the F5, to choose between HiFid and FC level?

My question about FC3 and MAC is what is happening with the PFM Mig-29?

Earlier this year I was under the impression that FC3 owners would get a free upgrade to the Mig-29 without having to purchase anything else, but with the MAC announcement I'm not so sure a free upgrade for FC3 owners will be a thing.

Really the Mig-29 is the only reason I bought FC3. I already had the F15, A10A, and Su27.

Hi chap'. Any changes/upgrades to individual aircraft are automatically applied if we own the aircraft; regardless of it being purchased individually, or in a package like FC3 or the upcoming MAC.

Reading the MAC announcement, it looks like they'll have the MiG's PFM finished for MAC's release. Those of us who own FC3 (currently the only way to own the MiG-29) will enjoy the PFM as soon as it's release...at no charge.

I bought F-15 before deciding on FC3; the earlier summer sale making up my mind. Why did you buy almost half the planes individually, rather than the discounted FC3 bundle?

Because I struggle with spontaneous mental retardation at times. No, JK, but seriously, I think the individual modules were on steam sale back before I switched to stand alone so I bought the individual A10A, F15, and Su27 modules for like $3-5 USD each. Not sure why I opted for individual modules instead of FC3 at that time. They were cheap and I had the power to pick and choose. I also didn't know anything about DCS at that time.

I hear ya Brother on the SMR issue. Have many bouts myself.
I also get the shakes when anything goes on sale. Wanted to buy Viggen again when HB recently posted their sale. Cheers!

question: will flight model be the same for MAC owners?

because it would kinda suck that a MAC Mig-21 can somersaults while PFM Mig-21 will be looking at it with a sheer disbelief.

I don't know what the status is for over body and LEX root vapes on stuff like the F15, Su-27 and Mig-29.

I was wondering if the LEX vapes will be added to the Mig-29 when it's upgraded to PFM?

Obviously there's probably more important functions to upgrade and model, but I thoroughly enjoy rippin' the stick and getting some sick vapes.
