Is there an original source for this report? Luthier had said there would be a massive reveal with a strict deadline of yesterday.

Sweet. Thanks for the link SB.
The scale of the September 1st launch may have been slightly exaggerated. I'd thought there would have been more to it, going by what luthier had said previously.
I'll be interested to see the quickstarter presentation on Thursday. I think I'll want to know quite a bit more about the project before investing. Who is leading, who is responsible for what and some key timelines and mission goals would be good. Now that we have seen what can be achieved in a very short time by a determined team with an existing engine, the done-when-it's-done approach may not attract as many backers as one might hope.

Stretch goals.... depends on kickstarter monies.
I'm assuming the large Normandy map will include England.



Luthier....
"We'll see how well we do with kickstarter. Core game will have one large Normandy terrain. If we hit stretch goals, we'll have more maps.

Less than a year from now, or a bit more time if we hit stretch goals."

This looks very promising. Now we have a choice between two different styles of flight sim, one that aims for a detailed CEM experience in the style of Cliffs Of Dover and another that will offer a more simplified approach. Personally, with the financial commitment required to purchasing a series of planes and add-ons to eventually cover the whole range of WW2 theatres, I would prefer to be making a long term commitment to something that offers a little more than " Push Button I to start the engine ".

I hope this project goes well for Ilya, as it has the potential to be a true successor to the IL2 series. If all is good with the presentation on the 5th September, then they will definitely be getting some of my cash to see this game reach it's potential.

It's just going to be so hard waiting for the day when it finally arrives! Still there's always Malta to look forward to.

Speaking of Malta, is there a link where one might follow development? I've been working on a detailed Malta map for Il-2 and would very much like to see how they are getting on.

Nice analysis and I feel the same way...we can't let this opportunity die
