The E.A. Sports model is totally different from the DCS Engine.
DCS world is always updated and is always moving forward.
It is the environment itself that we play and is the critical pull factor for current and future customers.
The excruciating level of detail per module is also a totally critical pull factor that brings us here.
Once top end attack chopper releases become a norm in DCS, then I guarantee that the requirement for KA-50 updates will subside.
Believe me, this is so... if we have 1 top league attack chopper..... you will need to upgrade it!

Just because we have Mirage and upcoming F-18 doesn't mean I don't and won't be enjoying mig-21

If Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit from 2011 was still being sold for $50 (like the shark), then yes I would expect the bugs fixed. Imagine if you just bought it today? You'd expect that $50 investment to at least be functioning right? Do what you will with textures, but bugs gotta be fixed if your your still supporting/selling it.

Frankly, because of the business model and the way it is marketed to us, they need to maintain BS2 even if they discontinue sales.

Otherwise they are saying there is a timer on every module, and when it runs out, you wont be able to fly them anymore (without maintaining an old computer running an old version of DCS:World - and even then this would compromise the feature of having different modules fly together)

Whether or not they are *obligated* to do this is another matter, it all comes down to resource.

If they are going to get more benefit from assigning staff to a new module, or working on DCS:World environment, rather than updating an old omodule, I wouldnt expect it to ever happen, regardless of how peeved we are about our purchases.

TBH Ka-50 needs a marketing push as well as a quality pass, it is still the most advanced combat-heli sim available, even now. I cant believe there isnt a fresh generation of interested individuals who would be keen to pick it up.

A few of us over at 229th B Coy have just started re-exploring the depths of the Ka-50. I used to fly it when it first came out in single-player, but mostly just shooting stuff using Vikhrs, etc. BS2 upgrade was installed, flew it some more SP. Then along came the Mi-8 and a new passion was ignited, and I have pursued that ever since, first at Black Shark Den, and now at 229th B Coy. A gang of us have achieved very high levels in the Mi-8.

Now, in multiplayer, the Ka-50 has really started to come alive. The modelling of the navigation systems is extraordinary, especially for such an old piece of software. In VR, the cockpit is accessible and cleverly designed, and typically Soviet in style. Our Ka-50 group is just getting warmed up, starting with a back-to-basics training schedule, and it is really fantastic fun to use all the systems it has to offer.

Still love it!

I won't be buying a black shark 3. I've already payed TWICE for the Shark. You want to sell another Shark, it better be the Ka-52. Otherwise, FIX THE SHARK.
