What is the status?


Recommended Posts

What is the status of this thing? The last update thread that I see is from last July.

Frankly I have given up on it. Money down the drain... gurgle.. gurgle.. :mad:

Out:

P-51D

Fw 190 D-9

Bf 109 K-4

 

In Progress:

Spitfire

P-47D

Me.262A1

Map and Ground Units

AI-B17

 

Planes have been coming at a pretty steady pace. Every couple or few months. Bf 109 came maybe a month after the initial guess, but they're on the job. Which we should thank them for, considering RRG dropped the ball.

Mate, stop that immediately, flushing your money is sheer wastage, suggest you use it for purchasing the newly-released Bf109-K4 instead :thumbup:

The DCS Mi-8MTV2. The best aviational BBW experience you could ever dream of.

I wouldn't be so honeyed in respect of ED, I believe they plan to make some money out of it and part of the work was made thanks to us backers so yea, maybe we should all thanks them but they should do the same at least.

You mean a company actually selling a product in order to make money so that they get a return on invested capital? Yeah, I think you are on to something here...:music_whistling:

You assume that they believed they can make a ton of money on WWII planes and theatres and that if they can the additional work was worth putting off other projects.

 

A giant failed Kickstarter would have been terrible from a publicity standpoint though.

 

I hope they do make money. ED going out of business would be bad for the flight sim community. What would you replace it with? So ya, I'm pretty grateful for them picking it up AND hope they make some decent scratch from the endeavor. It goes both ways...

Maybe just read the 12/4/14 DCS News Letter.

 

"DCS WW11 Status: Striving for a late-December 2014 release, but if debugging takes longer Jan/Feb 2015. As always best estimate and not promises".:thumbup:

 

That part in the newsletter is about DCS World 2, meaning EDGE. Nothing WW2 specific

I also pledged $40 but picked the Spit & P47. So I still have nothing. I just wondered what was going on with this since I don't see any official new WW2 status updates.

Do you not get any of the Newsletters?

 

The release of a major part of that just took place as well...

No, I haven't seen any WW2 Newsletters that I remember since the Kickstarter failed. I did get those but none since..

 

Where can I see those online? What was released other than the aircraft that I don't have?

ED doesnt have access to the kickstarter pages, so no updates go through there, you can see discussion on all the latest newsletters on these forums, look in the official update section, and just basically all over the forums.

 

Pro tip though, dont come on all doom and gloom until you look around and/or ask what is going on, you will get a better response from people here, and there are many that want to help others out.

I guess OP meant not only planes but also terrain, WWII units and so on.

So far authors of kickstarter failed again and ran away like cowards.

Reminder: Fighter pilots make movies. Bomber pilots make... HISTORY! :D | Also to be remembered: FRENCH TANKS HAVE ONE GEAR FORWARD AND FIVE BACKWARD :D

You can probably change your picks and select something that is out now if you don't want to wait. It's probably 2 or 3 months if the current release trend keeps up for the Spitfire and most likely 2nd qt for the P47. There may also be a Christmas sale sometime this month but I'm not sure on that.

Thanks for the suggestion. Think I'll wait for my beloved 47. :-)

 

I did find the newsletter signup page in the Personal Section and just signed up. So there is no way to see the past ones that I missed?

 

And is the only content released so far just some aircraft? Nothing else?

You can do a search on the forum for previous newsletters.

 

Current status is 2 out of 5 planes released (or 3 out of 6 if you include the already released Mustang). Spitfire will be the next plane released. Probably Q2. Terrain will come after NTTR and Straits of Hormuz. I'd say that means Q3 next year.
