Or possibly you'd prefer a quiz when you install BoB. If you don't know why the Spit couldn't follow the 109 into a vertical dive, your HD gets formatted.
XD some flight simmers can be so elitist can't they

But once players are using TS or Ventrilo this not helps a lot. i dont known if is possible but it would be helpfull if game blocks another chat programs when server owner chooses to do so.

An option to unblock or block is highly desirable! Is it possible?

p.s.: im commenting cause Olegs said that radio quality ll depend distances between planes and radio towers.

Blocking team comms will not go over well.

I dare say it would cause many to skip the purchase.

Much of the fun of online play is being on comms with your mates and enjoying each other's company and banter.

Taking it away is not in the best interest of sales.

Be sure.

El Aurens, but once again, options.

But for BoB, at least, I won't bother. All British and German planes we'll be able to fly have radio, anyway...

I understand. However i said comms must be allowed using internal game radio and only with server desire.

TS and ventrilo can be used if server decides yes. Im only thinking about players who wishes a more hardcore gaming, i understand that there is players who would like to fly this way.

And the game could satisfy casual, medium, realistic and extreme realistic players (grognards)! Some players lock his belts, use aviator glasses, gloves and etc...

Perhaps some advanced flight modeling, tweaked graphical features, etc... I know add-ons can address these needs, but you have such a personal following and people who know sims know you give quality and would be willing to pay more with your stamp of approval. At the very least, I hope you're getting a good kickback % on the add-ons that are produced for SOW. The whole flight sim business model should be different than shooters... Not sure it can withstand a high price for all users, but to make up for lack of total users, price needs to be higher...

In general, it seems shooter folks are starting to get bored of the cheap/fast thrill of shooters and are looking for substance. Perhaps in the coming years, we'll see a ressurgence of interest in simming like there was in the early/mid 80s with the original MS FS which "every" gamer had in there PC collection.
I totally disagree with this post. The segment of users like yourself is 1) probably very small 2) Surely elitist, in the negative sense of the word.

Paying 100 USD (!!!!!!) for a "premium user package", or even 30 USD, to get "additional tweaks or modules that are locked and not provided to all users" (!!!!!!!!!!) will be accepted by a very small minority of users, and thus create little revenues, but will for sure create a "digital divide" between "richer" and "poorer" customers. I can't imagine a better way to destroy and upset a loyal base of customers.

I'd prefer rather to pay for patches, if they include additional content. This will put all users on the same level and increase revenues IMHO, provided that the cost is reasonable and well distributed along the time.

Regards,
Insuber

Insuber is totally correct in his assessment of this.

You want more content? Fund a 3D modeler to make something, then have it included in the sim. How's that for "premium" content?
