Default Jealousy

I'm jealous of the fact that some of my squad mates, disappointed as they are with Clod, are being seduced by this:

(Shame DCS don't do prop stuff).

I'm seen some rubbish posts here postulating that Clod "has" to survive, and that 1C are the "only" sim engineers, which is blatant tosh, there's plenty of other sim engineers out there.

But I'm jealous of that review. Not the subject matter, but the fact that:

1) The Sim works. Just as advertised. Instead of delivering so much less than promised, it delivers more.
2) The cockpit works. The cockpit modelling helps win the game, instead of being a major opponent in it's self .
3) The difficulty is there because doing this stuff is well, difficult. There's no fake difficulty added on because "harder is more macho, and macho is more real".
4) The mission editor is COMPLETE, EASY and FAST to use.
5) The documentation is complete!

I'm jealous that the DCS game is finished. That it's documented. That it works. That it has content.

While I'm sure Luthier and co are working their hardest to get this pile of potentiality to run properly, does any body really believe this game will ever be finished, nay, polished, to the same degree as DCS?

If DCS weøre to make a prop sim, I'd just be so gone. I've had enough of Trabant, I want me some Rolls Royce.
