First of all the EFM flight model was excellent compared to other modules I have (almost all of them). The 3D model is brilliant, the skins are brilliant and the cockpit is poor. Was it worth buying...yes it was, I don't regret it...well I got it bought as a gift actually. However, it appears there are still issues, maybe not as many as I first thought.

Mizzy I am Not talking about you...
These are normal "ooops" moments, no worries.

I was refering to the accusations, of VEAO "blaming" ED, which Chris obviously did not! And especially at the nonsense, that VEAO is the only third party that has problems.
I agree, they have been hit harder, than most, but it is the nature of complex software development, that things can easily go tits up and need to be fixed, reworked, scrapped or whatever.

On the other side Chris and pman where always very open and honest about their plans, status, and issues.
Beginning with the clear statement "the Hawk will be the testbed, from which we need to learn how to integrate a module into DCS. Expect delays and trouble along the path" and the latest news in post 1 of this thread... No evasion, no marketing blanks, only a phase of very reduced update and information, due to the shit-storms that rolled through these forums.

I would be very happy, if other companies producing Operating Systems, Notebooks, Enterprise Software would be as honest and direct in their communication, especially when it comes to features and issues.

I personally am very happy about the latest news and can easily cope with the wait, for the dual-cockpit an overhaul of the ASM (which was already astonishing) and look forward to it.

Ells talked about the P-40 module verification happenin "very soon" and after that it will be released to the public... Now, I wonder what might "very soon" mean. I take it that we probably have the P-40 in our hands before xmas... most likely before. End of this month? Possible?ish? Maybe?

All depends on how those steps go.

All good discussion points and I'm not going to go over old ground again.
We have learnt and P40 is testament to that.

I'm happy to YouTube the P40 start up training lesson and taxi take off lesson, of which we are still working on refining; however I'm going to do it when they are more complete (text and voice).

I can't go into official review details for obvious reasons. And I can't give timescales.
The module will be fully reviewed by ED and TFC prior to release.

In terms of Hawk, yes I'll post details up as work is progressing.

I have spent the past couple of days at Jav's house going through an actual Hawk Pilots notes and checklist cards.
Apart from 3 items on the pre-start, start and post-Start checklists which have been omitted from our module for sensitivity reasons our Hawk was on the numbers every step of the way.
I stand behind the fact you won't find any other Hawk in a sim that matches what we have done.

Yes we have a couple of bugs that I mentioned in my original post with re-spawn but again Hawk is on the numbers for ASM.

Bbrz, Hawk EFM is currently in review jointly with ED. More details will be posted later.

I hope that answers most recent questions.
Keep them coming please.

Thanks,
Chris.

Quick one from me, with the rewrite (which, I support) will the Hawk be re-released in stages or when you get there as a final product? I'm trying to anticipate if it will get worse before it gets better type of thing? Thus, should we expect to see a long period of nothing happening until it catches up? Just trying to set my own expectations here.

Ells228, can the hawk T.1 improvement, fixes and more catalogue them as a "2.0" version?

Unlikey, the re-write will be pretty much from the ground up, thereby making it incompatible with the existing code. So it will very likely just land as a rework in one major hit with additions later on for expansion on minor functionality.

It is important not to confuse the rework with a Hawk T2. It will still be a Hawk T1a just with some new back end code.
