Only idiots would do that.
I agree, its highly unlikely that IC would give away a source code that cost them millions to produce.

Its far too early to do complex modding, as the current game engine is still in flux, any game engine rewrites could make modders hard work useless. Its also highly unlikely the development will build a new game engine from scratch, but very likely portions of the game engine will be rewritten other portions optimized before the Sequels release. The time to start complex modding will be after the Sequels is released, or cancelled. If and by the time a Sequel is release the game engine and features should be in a more finished and stable state, for the development to have any hope of selling product. Either way the modding should begin in earnest at that time.

Bolox- thanks for your work & answers.As we have discussed before the thing that drives me a little round the bend is this:autopilot-on some missions if not turned on at a certain point( beginning of mission or after the first way point or not hittong it just right, or the second or after going around the aerodrome- it simply sends your aircraft in an endless circuit or after a few times around lands you home while your chums go on without you.Your only solution is to jump into one of the leader aircraft well along in the mission which works ok but its sorta not "your" aircraft.More frustrating: it doesn't always happen or perhaps it doesn't happen if the mission planner can fix it in the planning stages.Anyway its led to many repeat missions ...

Salute

Now that it has been confirmed development work on CLIFFS OF DOVER has stopped, I would repeat the request 1C releases whatever tools there are available to allow players to mod and improve the game.

It's clear the community would like to see this happen, 85% of this poll agreed, it was promised by the original developers, those who have worked with the game already have been able to enable aspects, like dogfight refueling, which were not available in the releases.

An improvement in this game will only result in additional sales for 1C, and some revenue for the company in the period while we await the publication of BATTLE OF STALINGRAD.

Thanks to 1C for their original game, nows the time to allow the community to take it a bit further.

What tools would be needed, who is left to finish them? as long as they are in the flight sim market place, the source code will not likely be made available either.
