Official announcement from GT and d-strict teams.

Dear customers. Our teams are happy to announce about collaboration over our project. As many of you know, that during last time both companies where concentrated over work at the same theme projects during 2006. It was "Sykorsky" project for d-strict team www.d-strict.com (http://www.d-strict.com) , and "Knights of the Sky" for GT team www.gennadich.com (http://www.gennadich.com) . Both projects are pointed for simulation of WWI theme. During long period of negotiations we have decided that we can reach much more results and success while working together. Our joint work can give us much more that before and unite all best things that yet have been done from both projects. Our customers will be able to get much more complicated and qualitative product, while our companies will collaborate together to act for simulation market with better success.

Our teams resources collaboration are planned for early of July 2006. GT team will be as tech base for project. Sykorsky team members will be transferred into GT team and all items done for Sykorsky are included into "Knights of the Sky" project. We sure about that, that we will use all those materials in right way to bring out maximum quality products into game development market.

Stay tuned for more info about.

I hear you, but I'm pleased to think that the finished product will be greatly improved by this alliance. I for one have as little idea of aerial operations on the Eastern Front as I had of Sturmoviks & Lagg and all the rest before the launch of Il-2 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif I hope we may see the appropriate maps in the upcoming sim.

There's also the chance that extra programmers may well speed things up when it comes to it.

Whichever, it's great news http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

That's really good news. Must be the first time I've seen two game developers joining forces instead of fighting against each other.

I just hope the Sykorsky guys can move the lighting code into Gennadich's game. Those self-casting shadows are great.

Thanks for sharing.

I wonder if they will dump the il2 engine in favor of the Sirkorsky engine.It will give them move freedom as they will not have to license it.

If they don't keep the cockpits that GT modelled, I'm going to die inside.
