Without at least one of those features, it's no buy for me and others I'm sure.

It would break multiplayer to have SFM only planes and that was already an issue that had to be addressed.
It's being tossed around I think, similar to MAC, I doubt they would be SFM, once you're going PFM you never go back. Nothing firm on this right now at all. Right now the focus is on the P-47, 262 and Mosquito.

Good to know, thanks! I'm eagerly awaiting all of those modules.

Our FMs are much more dynamic, they require a lot more information than what you might see elsewhere, so they do tend to be more time-consuming. As someone pointed out in the P-47 thread, it can be easier to build a real one than create a simulation from scratch at the level we are dealing with here.
Don't forget to get Eric Brown's report from the UK archives, AFAIK it's the only Allied test report of an Me262 maintained by actual 262 German crews.

Thanks! Really looking forward to it, especially the Me 262.


Although I do really hope that they will have PFM / ASM because that's what sets DCS apart from everything else on the market. I can live with some systems being unavailable in EA, but I do hope PFM / ASM is the goal.

They never said otherwise regarding Me262. Hope there's no change in their minds.

PFM is out of discussion, ED will not go back to any less detailed than a PFM now. With regards to ASM, as I said never, ever, anybody said it would be otherwise but we know the question they made about Mosquito being like that due to complexity. Anyway, bearing in mind 262 is an aircraft from RRG kickstarter (unlike the Mosquito) I guess it has to be full hardcore to fulfil that, so making assumptions now in any other direction is just a mere lucubration.

S!
