We are all anxious for "The Patch" and have seen many beta testers hard at work with the various versions of it but......

I don't think they are as close to a final version as we all would want (or think). There have been personnel changes among the ranks of software developers so work has not proceeded as quickly as originally planned. The scope of work is also greater than many people originally thought adding more time to this project. And please also consider that "The Patch" is a one-time release. Whatever Maddox issues will be the flight model that the community will live with as the final version. My understanding is "Beta Version 8" is not acceptable as the final release; just another stepping stone in the development process.

This a fantastic sim that I plan to fly for a considerable time so why not just be patient and let the software developers complete their work. When done, effort can be concentrated on add-ons to expand it.

I've been following posts of Oleg and see he has told us that development continues. I don't want Ubi to be pressured into a patch release until ALL of the improtant issues have been addressed.

So, for me a couple more months is no big deal, I'll be glad to have the final version of the patch released to the community by this fall.

Amazing...these morons get their own O/T perv forums (even linked on the GD) and they still have to spread their vehemence here.

No less in the ORR...

Facts:

Patch development duration:5 months
FB dev.duration:12-13 months


So patch dev. takes(currently) 41%-38% of the time,the game(which is almost IL2 remake) development itself.

That gives me two deductions:
1.They SCREWED UP.
2.They treat the patch dev. as 4th in the priority queve.



Oh,yes,I forgot that it`s free,so I`d better shut my pie hole before an army of Oleg fanboys tell me what I am and what should I change in my opinion.

Sorry,their assurances that they`re working hard are bullsh!t to me.


You of course can believe whatever you want.I don`t believe those words.

Take it to GD guys, this is not needed in ORR. You have an expected release date for the patch, compared to others in the combat sim world you are all very lucky, you were spoilt in the past and behave like brats now. Give it a rest.
