Default Was Oleg Maddox too far ahead of his time?

Hi all,

Was he?

Best Regards,
MB_Avro.

Well, his vision certainly was/is.

He wanted to make the best WW2 combat simulation ever, but the technology was not there yet.

I hope he comes back to the genre and has another go at some point.

He deserves better than what he got.

Just my opinion.

Yes I think that is true...he failed to envision a world wide recession though, so many people still running old hardware...including me

FYI, the CLOD project was restarted 3 times under his watch.

I know the history, I've been here the whole time.

Funny you only show up after the sim is cancelled. Enjoy gloating, or just indulging in some good old fashioned schadenfreude?

Oleg is a genious.

Simple as that. IL-2 Sturmovik is the best PC combat flight simulator ever made.

I was here long before the sim was cancelled and had high hopes for its success. And no, I'm not enjoying gloating - just trying to point out that all was not rosy with Oleg and Luthier as some people here like to think.

No, Oleg was not.

His ideas for CoD were taken directly from the wishes and requests of IL-2 flight sim fans.

Unfortunately his publishers did not have the patience or vision he did.

Yes. He consistantly broke new ground, always with visual balance. A rare bird indeed.

The game has been a financial loss for the publishers. What else did you expect them to do?
