Hey Jason did you saw a drunken bears in the streets of Moscow? :mrgreen:

No, no drunken Bears. Just lots of snow and pretty girls!

Great info. As the old adage goes: All good things come to those who WAIT. Keep up the good work and I especially appreciate the fact that you are taking the time to do it right and proper. The results are well worth it.

Soo many good things to look forward to! These guys really are pioneers in the new breed of simulations cutting a path for others to follow.

well, this level of communication is certainly unusual from a developer,I've been doing sims since as long as I can remember, and never saw something like this… I have just preorder both 2 seaters, just to support this effort.

Wonderful post on a fantastic team, responsible for the best flight sim ever!
I've bought every aircraft, and will continue to do so.

Been reading this article on my phone and finally got a chance to finish it at home.

I sure do appreciate meeting each of the team. It's like these are the guys we've been flying with and now I get to meet them! Aloha team 777!
Have to say I cringed when I saw the snow in the pics…not to mention seeing everyone wearing beanies. Brrrrr. I even get cold in Hawaii :D

Is that a pic of Nungesser on Viks wall?
Nice to see Anton reading Sim HQ :)
What kind of a monstrosity joystick is Petrovich using? A hybrid MSFF2/flight stick? :0o:
And only Han has TrackIR? (he definitely needs a better joystick :P MSFF2 FTW!)

Thanks for the introduction! It's great to meet you all!

Well, Better late than never,

I would like to tell you Jason, this is a very nice tread ! Thank you very much, you've right when you say it's a hobby and the forum is for me (but I think I'm not alone) as important as the game. I understand that it is a tool for your teams too ;o)
And now we know developpers' faces we can think about their fantastic work during flights ! ;)

I hope developpers will see this line :


Ia xachu vam skazat BELCHOI PRIVET iz Parije !!!! SPACIBA BELCHOI !!!! ETA NE TOLKA ATLITCHNA, ETA PIZDIETZ !!!!!!!! MALADITZ !!!!(sorry it comes from heart;o)


Do you also have planned any trip in France ?

I don't know if you know it but near Paris, in June, we have a meeting with WWI and WWII planes. Nieuport 17 and Fokker DRI will fly if we have a good weather.


Here is the pics I have done some years ago, I enjoy to share it with the comunity and your teams ;o)

I can relate to your visit. I am (was) a WW II reenactor and have e-mailed reenactors from Russia over the years (I do/did German and Russian). As I can tell you, it's the governments that do all the yelling, not the people,LOL. Reenactors from Russia are the same as in the US, UK, Hong Hong, France,etc,etc. and through out the world. The people are very friendly. All it takes is a common ground. My job had me traveled the world (excpet China and Russia) and people are the same anywhere you go.
NICE photos btw……
(One thing…you'd be surprised how many Russian reenactors do WW II German….LOL).

That was great and informative post Jason. It is truly amazing :o how talented the ROF team is and how complicated the game engine really has become. These guys, had they been born 40 years earlier, would have been "rocket scientists" that would have gotten the Soviet’s a manned moon landing.

"As millions of American families who lived through the Cold War can attest, the Soviet Union was viewed as a “godless evil empire” that aimed to wipe out America. Sure that’s the simple way to look at it, but my father (Vietnam Air Force veteran), grandfather (aerospace worker building bombers) and even I (4F) at one point was willing to devote all our energies to defeating international communism in the name of freedom. An imagined threat or not, the Cold War was for real and would have made a trip like mine impossible. Boy how things have changed in a single generation."

No kidding. That's why I am so enamored by Russian history. It was always taboo as an American, so opening up a whole new perspective on things has been quite an experience.

Great photos, im glad the trip went well and you made it back safe.

Thanks for taking the time, interest in members, updates, Pictures we can now add to the names of those who help us enjoy RoF. I will always be a Fan & Supporter. Keep up the good work. There are other Sims but none can compare to RoF.
e.b.
p/s Love the pics of Moscow and of the people in your report from your trip.

Saitek doesn't make very precise joysticks. Comfortable and durable and stuff, sure, but not very precise.

Matter of fact, he has created a new flight and damage model that is 10x more accurate than the current model. The only problem is current computers cannot run it effectively in game yet and multiplayer would be crushed due to its complexity and accuracy. The demo I saw was eye-popping cool. To say we are hampered by today’s hardware and internet bandwidth is an understatement. Maybe someday it will be possible to be deployed. We discussed many issues that some in the community like to harp on and we came to some good conclusions about what is or is not possible.

:cry: :cry: :cry: Nooooooooooo! Why?!!!


:lol: I'd love to see something 10x more accurate than ROF's FM/DM. Can you imagine?!

WOW
I dont play that much, but have purchased a few planes to tinker with. This whole post blew me away. Thank you so much for introducing everyone and showing us your hard work. What got me is that what you are working on for the future and have developed it, our hardware cant handle it now.

GREAT JOB ALL!

Bravo Jason! I suspect you and I are about the same age ;) and certainly the political events of our younger selves shaped our view. My professional direction went to diplomacy and though I work daily to create bridges with other countries, folks like yourself are heroes in my book.

Thanks for sharing your journey and for creating such a great product. ROF keeps me up at night and that's not always a bad thing.

BTW- next time you are in Russia, you must visit St. Pete and Novgorod.

Cheers!

What they realy need is airconditioning in the office. Next hot and humid Moscow summer may kill ROF project as firmly as the lack of money. :lol:

I wondered if anybody else noticed that heavily modded FFB2 stick :D
Looks like someone wanted to have his CH combo with some Force Feedback :D

Yes….we have a number of Kulibins (Russian inventor who's name became an appellative) in Russia/Ukraine who are able to make a friends of MSSFFB2 and CH ("intercourse" the controllers, grips etc.)plus slight modifications in mechanical part of MSSFFB2 (bearing etc.)…but such modifications costs nearly the same money as the right-from-shop joystick.

Perhaps at a later date a video of this could be made available.

Jason, I am new to RoF by about a week now, and I'd like to thank you for this post and for yours and ALL the 777 teams towards this project and wish ALL the best in any future endevers.

Jason, could this new general flight model be used to tweak the aircraft in the current flight model? I mean, if the experimental G.F.M. more accurately calculates how the aircraft should behave and perform, then perhaps the values could be kludged into the current one. For example, the Nieuport 17's roll rate; if the new G.F.M. determines that the Nieuport 17 rolls faster than the current G.F.M. does, then maybe that data could be used in the Nieuport 17 F.M. revision within the current G.F.M.
