Big News
« on: December 11, 2014, 02:14:46 PM »
777 have announced that they're merging RoF with Mourmets!  Actually the big news is that they're finally going to apply some FM tweaks and popular "fixes" to RoF:http://riseofflight.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?t=44683

My reading of this is that it's a parting shot at the constant bitching from certain forum members.  Zak says that the changes may not work as players want them to and that tweaks may affect the FMs in unexpected ways.  I've always thought that 777's reticence to change the performances of the planes had less to do with a stick in the mud attitude and more to do with their knowledge that they had created the "best fit" for each plane using their engine.  Forcing one parameter to match its "real" value will probably skew a whole other bunch out of whack.

I hope I'm wrong, but I think they're saying "be careful what you wish for".

Or, they just like watching heads explode, figuratively, on the forums  :D.
Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

Yep, though  I note that Jason replied to my post worrying about the FM "fixes" by saying exactly what I posted at the end of my post above...
