** F-14 Road to Release + Christmas Update!! **


Recommended Posts

Yeah those vouchers look tempting! I just hope ED is resolving that whole issue with the new protection system sooner than later (hopefully before the fist of January that is), cause i don't really feel comfortable buying full priced modules with the current implementation of said protection system.

Interesting, I did not see that. However, I never received a second giftcard either. :/

 

Just my guess, but it seems to me that it might take a day or two from the feel of it, especially if bought after office hours since I can't make out whether it is something they will send or the company they're using for the commercial transaction will do. I am just talking out of my butt, so don't take this idea as gospel. I get it that it's a PIB if you are going to make an immediate purchase, hope they get a better idea later on to avoid this kind of snafu.

Having a relatively successful release can make you overly confident, however.

You become too much of an unrealistic idealist, and quite frankly, the arduous time prior to the Viggen’s launch was going to eventually take its toll. We didn’t know it at the time, but some of us were fizzling out, and standing on the gas pedal really doesn’t help with a fuel starved engine. In our post success hubris, I made the absolute dumbest statement I’ve made in, well, forever. Allow me to quote myself for ultimate posterity and shame:

The picard double facepalm is not potent enough to describe what a boneheaded PR move this post is.

There was a voice in the back of my head screaming from past (MiG-21) lessons learned, but pff! we just released the Viggen. Nothing can go wrong! Silence, ye bellowing hounds, I rebuked as I hit the Post button.

 

What a sympathetic way to say sorry. Your openness is much appreciated.;)

Looking forward to next year and the release of the Tomcat!

To support your project I ordered 2 vouchers. One for me and one as a gift. As I´m waiting to cash in the voucher for the Tomcat, I can`t try it out now, but my 60$ voucher says 54,99$. I hope this problem can be sorted out soon and we will get some information about it.

Thank you and Merry Christmas to the whole Heatblur Team!!!:thumbup:

Great news. I’m just worried by the amount of HD interior detail (seat cushions...). That may be something visual you can show but the weapons system, radar and other systems , and exterior textures is what’s important to many of us. Plus i’d like to know if my 980GT will handle this level of textures.

Anyway, keep up the good work. But don’t forget real sim life objectives.

Honestly. Have a look around before you start criticizing.

For being involved in development projects, I can say for sure there is no shame in not always meeting the "promised" delivery date.

 

But Heatblur store credit gift cards instead? Or on top? I'm not so sure about that one...

 

Still. Merry Xmas! :)

@Nick (Cobra)

 

I have given you a lot of grief in the past years for a variety of things. I also supported the hell out of the Mig-21 project by donating money (that you never got) and purchasing four copies just to give them away.

 

The Viggen held no interest for me so I have not purchased it, yet.

 

Having looked over the artwork for the F-14, several times, I have to say that you are beginning to impress me again.

 

I wish you good luck with your efforts in the coming year and I will definitely be purchasing this aircraft as soon as it is possible.

Cobra does such a good job of putting a human face behind game development.

 

I have been continually blown away by Heatblur's work and passion for the products they work on. There's no danger in me jumping ship because of a slipped release date. The F-14 is much anticipated (as is the F-18 and Harrier) by me, but this 3rd party developer has, through it's previous products, earned my trust. When they say they're bringing a new revolutionary experience, I believe them. Each of their previous modules have been, after all.

 

I'm also glad they're getting a Christmas/Holiday break for a change. :thumbup:

 

Still exciting news and a nice update.

Thank you for the update. I am a bit dissapointed of course after yet another missed target for release. Being late again and again is discouraging. I am also not sure about the Heatblur gift cards. I for one am not willing to put money towards a product in which I don’t know what I will get or when I will get it. This “road to release” was underwhelming and didn’t really offer any time frame or plan for release at all. I need to see what I am actually paying for and when I will get it before spending my money. There are many DCS customers who have been burned in the past by giving money early to only be faced with unreleased or unfinished products.

 

I wish you a Merry Christmas and the best of luck with the Tomcat in 2018. Hopefully we do see it sooner rather than later and I will gladly spend my money when there is a firm release.

I received it by email like the first one. Took some ours after the first voucher arrived.

There are no shortcuts when it comes to quality. [...]

and with Jester yelling at you over the ICS for screwing up as the cherry on top.

Would you peeps mind being the first developer to give us women some extra immersion, by having JESTER refer to the pilot by pronouns that depend on a user setting (maybe in the "Special" tab of the DCS main settings): male/female pilot? :thumbup:

Thanks for the update and your sincereness, a module from you guys is like a gem, i bought the Viggen just to support but waiting and waiting for the Av-8B made me give it a go and i just cant believe how much fun it has been and how different it is specially most of its type of missions being Sea based, A/G Radar orientated and anti ship missiles wich are a total novelty coming from the A-10C. It has really surprised me and turned the support into a good investment, i just cant wait for your F-14!

Aweesome idea! Thankfully i don't think we have any recordings yet where the gender plays a role. In general Jester talks directly to pilot, hence mainly using "you" :) E.g. "Hey, you forgot to arm the ejection seat", "Allright, obviously we're in a hurry, accepting current INS alignment", or just phrases like "MiG-28 3 o-clock" :pilotfly:

 

 

Edit: Oh, and i can add that we have considered adding an option to have a female Jester, but if we do that it won't be until jester is at a quite mature stage.

Any way to get a physical copy of the gift card? It would be a cool item to add to my collection of tomcat stuff.

 

Unfortunately no. The giftcard is basically just a code delivered to you that you use like a coupon during your purchase on the Heatblur store.

Just to confirm. Can you use the gift card more than once?

 

If you purchase an item on the store that costs less than your giftcard's value, what is left over will be kept in your giftcard's account balance until you used it up. Remember that you most likely will have received two giftcards (due to how the giftcard system works) so for the full amount you have to use both codes. In this case additionally you can of course use only one of the two codes and keep the other one (whichever of the two you prefer) for later. Hope that helps!

I still have yet to receive my 2nd gift card. How do I go about getting this taken care of.

By the way that sentence makes a lot more sense than you probably realised when you were typing it: of course a female Jester would be more mature than a male one :smilewink::music_whistling:
