Thank you for this!

Sounds like news we've been waiting to hear for a long time.
I'm looking forward to hearing more about it. When can we see
some of the work being done? Actual physical locations: WOW!

15 bucks and we are doing our own airplane physics! Finally my Hawker Hurricane will have the wings of a spit and a turbo fan engine.

Doh Unreal here we come!!! Dont know much about Unreal, its been around for awhile and lots of FPS use it.

Either way two of the top engines out there for video games.

Well it needs to look up to date graphically if they are ever to gain new players..
Nee cockpit graphics are definitely required etc.

Note: EDITED (3/24/19)


I agree that the graphics look is the most important feature. This should include:

* realistic terrains (as mentioned there will be actual physical locations)
* trains, trucks, tanks, vehicles, ships, bridges, buildings and better vegetation/trees
* highly detail cockpits
* highly detail aircraft skins
* detailed pilot faces and heads (perhaps pivoting)
* realistic glass (cockpit) reflections with a little bit of "smoky glass" effect
* lights on the wingtips (is this realistic?)
* spinning prop visibility
* realistic engine smoke and damage smoke trails
* cockpit interior and instruments visible from outside plane
* awesome clouds and sky
* realistic water effects including coastal effects like waves
* flak explosions and smoke
* fantastic exploding aircraft
* bullet tracers and better looking shell casings
* better sound effects (no cartoon bail screams)
* a few more exterior view options like chase view
* engine flames (both for jet planes and piston engines)

I have to add this opinion ...
but whoever is going to work on these areas MUST, absolutely MUST
examine how some of the other aircraft simulations and games do this.
We must compete with the best of them. Perhaps a separate area of the
forum
can be for screenshots of these other game features.

I also feel that the designers of the new game should share their progress
and efforts here in the forum and let some others of us have input. Can we
see images of what's going on?

Check out my FaceBook page (below) where I will post images (like cockpit glass,
engine flames, spinning prop, clouds, etc.)

Click on the link below and then go to Photos. In Photos, go to the Album: New Warbirds 2020.

Candy is dandy, but the physics coding of aircraft flight needs a push forward also.

Look at the sky and terrains too.

I'm 67 years old and don't have enough years to learn to be this good. I'm ready to give up!
