Yes, Hitler was bad, as is what the "crooked cross" represented, but we must all remember history, not just certain parts or things.
The swastika isnt a nazi origonal as most know. Its still used in India as a symbol of peace/good luck etc. Some countrys need to lighten up. Its just a stinkin symbol. To many superstitous people still on this planet.

It's just weird that it's forbidden in something like a simulator, if you look at history books, or photographic books about WW2 you constantly see it.

I do agree that it should be forbidden if it's worshipped along with nazism.
But we just want historical accuracy.

Its not forbidden in most countries if its in a genuine historical context like a display of historical photographs from the period.

However its pretty difficult to claim that a game where people will be flying non-historical low level turn fights online in wonder woman view with cockpits turned off is a "genuine historical context" .

Why would it look like xxxx? At least it's a german military symbol and we won't get any Hakenkreuz in the original version of the game. So it's either something else, or nothing at all.

Your graphics editing/creation program of choice will fix this problem with little effort.

Or, just wait for our fine skinning community to fix it.

I thought the swastika Was the symbol of Gay Pride! Or maybe it should be? It would take away any negitive association with the symbol!

Cheers!
