Brilliant ! I'm gobsmacked by the EIII vs DH2 vs N11 vid and the upcoming Handley Page. The EIII wing warping is excellent. The future looks to be in very good hands :) Bravo 777/Neoqb, your efforts are very much appreciated. I will support this project for as long as it takes and I hope that's a very long time :)

Now, after I stopped drooling all over my keyboard, can this be summarized and added to the developers blog? This is probably the best sort of advertising the sim can get! Very nice!

That's simply amazing! November is now my favorite month, well I guess it already was since it is my birth month after all. 8-) But I can't believe the Handley Page is that far in the design stage! It is a massive plane! Plus, you guys are now doing something that Il-2 never did, heavy bomber campiagns! (With the exception of the Soviet TB-3) That is great! Can't wait!

It is good to see sim developers who are not afraid of multicore procs, even if it limits the amount of Windows 7 customers; now Neoqb needs to get the game to use more RAM. As far as priorities, the forests need fixing much more than the water.

Hopefully the weather system will be overhauled in the first half of next year. That's something I'd very much like to see.

Great news! Sounds really nice.

Just one remark regarding to:
Then after that, we do not know which single-seaters we will make.

hmmm, I guess I can help you… What about the SPAD VII? ;)

After that we do not know which bombers or recon birds we will build.

Hmmm again - do you mean you don't know which recon plane will be build flyable or which one will be created next? Cause there are a lot recon planes waiting to be modeled. A LOT!
I thought new recon planes are on it's way aswell?! :?

Anyway I'm very excited about the next updates! Thanks for the news!
Well done!

It will take some serious drill practice to get the infantry to form up into those natty little arrows before advancing though.

Speaking of Infantry, where ARE they hiding? I wanted to strafe them in the Demo, but didn't see any?

We need the little guys running away from trains and lorries on seeing us attacking the transports- "Scatter!"

And taking to the lifeboats on the canals :)

When RB dropped the infantry going from RB2 to RB3d, I was sad to see'em go. They would cheer as I flew my plane low over the trenches, and yell "CHARGE!" as they stormed the enemy.

It would be great to have animated figures to add life to airfields.
I'd love to give airshows and deliver the mail in a civil early-flight sim.
Sunbathers too.

Soldiers in 3D can cause big performance hit, if you will put too many into small area. We built some infantry and cavalry columns for own mod few years ago and even though the models were very simple, they were causing some fps drop, especially after we added "flexguns" to the units so they could defend themselves with their Mausers or Mosins.
Anyways, it will be worth testing once the tools will be availble here. But i afraid the worst - if the tank battle over the front is so resource eating, then the infantry can badly hit the CPU as well.
