Got this from WW1AirCombatSim.com. Today's date:

An official statement about unofficial statements (Knights of the Sky / Rise of Flight)
Posted by David on August 28, 2008 07:30 AM
There's been a lot of speculation recently about Knights of the Sky (Rise of Flight), specifically over the number of planes that will be included in the initial release and the disappointment people are having with the apparent lack of a mission editor.

So set us straight, neoqb developer VikS dropped by the SimHQ forums to say that nothing is set in stone.. yet...



=FB=VikS: A little statement about unofficial news - nothing is decided yet, i mean about setting and mission buillder.
So everyone - please wait untill official ones.
When? Well, right now we are summing up Leipzig results, so i think "two weeks" is smh close

I will not be surprised if they launch it in six months.

Some of the information released by the developers suggests that it may be released some time this year. I'm hopeful, but as with SoW, I won't hold my breath while I'm waiting. Anyway, got to save up for a rig that will run it!

You're right! And I love the sound. Thanks for the link.

They even claim it will run with a minimum of 512 mb RAM , that's just great!

I still have high hopes for KoTS,whereas my enthusiasm for SoW is fading fast these days. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

There will be an update on SOW monday at the banana forums. Hopefully we will see a substantial update that will give us a better idea on the progress being made.

We can live in hope,but if past updates are anything to go by,I won't get too excited just yet.
I would love to be wrong,but will not be surprised if we get more vague answers and blue screen WIP shots.

The inflight cockpit video seems to be a "Spad" (?)...right? Nice use of 6DOF...I'm looking forward to this one. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

+1, and it looks like they're a lot closer to release than SoW. Bring it on http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I'll fly both but I'm more a WW2 prop fan. That said if KOTS has a more immersive experience, which I doubt, I could fly it more. Time will tell. I think both sim will compiment each other.

Can somebody tell me what SoW is?!? I'm new to all this IL-2 stuff and would like to know what all you people are talking about. (P.S: when is Birds of prey coming out? Is it ever coming out?)

You asked that question in a previous post and were answered.

As far as IL-2 BOP is concerned...it was annouced a month or so ago and rumoured to be release next year. Just incase... because its a popular misconception...IL-2 BOP and nothing to do with Olegs SOW BOB or IL-2 series. Different developer. Although Oleg did give the BOP developer access to IL-2 FM.

SOW means thew Storm of War series and the first installment is called BoB for Battle of Britain. Its done by none other then Oleg Maddox and gang, creators of Il2 series. New flight engine, new CG models (CG means Computer Generated), new everything and it has nothing in common with the Il2 series other than the same developers.

Hope that helps http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'm probably looking forwards to this one a bit more than SoW, mainly because the last WW1 sim I played that I really enjoyed was KoTS, funnily enough, on the old Amiga!

There will be complaining about the lack of transparency of the windscreen. Even if in RL they were often saturated of oil & grease from the engine.
