Probably not, they wouldn't invest in something like that only to stop in the middle, the last update was about the shader stuff, that's a large part.

The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.

Unforeseen things can happen in the course of a project, the respective engineers can quit or, god forbid, worse. Other projects can take precedence, requiring a shift in ressources. Basically, everything can happen. That's not even factoring in hitting unforeseen roadblocks which is common when switching to different technologies, especially complicated ones like the graphics API.

But it's their job to build a good game? Especially one that keeps evolving into a bigger product day after day. I don't see how that's an excuse. "X can happen and Y may be a problem". It's their responsibility to calculate/foresee at least some of these errors. My boss won't give a toss if I'm late for work tomorrow, why should we keep cutting slack of off ED's terrible coding?

They will never, NEVER stop working on upcoming money-maker modules like the F-16 and take a better look at the existing product until their customers say something about the current state of the game. I wish them the best of luck and that they have taken my thoughts (that are shared by many members in this community) seriously and keep their head down after the F-16 comes out.

The F-16 isn't the only thing we are working on, there are a great many things being worked on, including the future direction of the sim as a whole, but when there is news, we will be happy to share, right now, on this topic, there is simply nothing to share.

I'm going to laugh my ass off when Vulkan drops and it makes no significant difference on our end. The wails and gnashing of teeth shall shake the forums!!! Hahaha you guys are always so funny

It makes some dev processes easier and makes gpu draw calls somewhat more efficient. It will not magically give you more magahurtz or make your discounted 950 gpu 3x more powerful.

I play a few games with vulkan and it’s much smoother FPS but I don’t see much increase in FPS but it does run cooler and smoother no hitching or lock ups.
