Hey fellas. Hope the holiday season is going well for everyone.

I was wondering something recently. With all the work that has been put into this FA lib, why not start anew with one of the numerous free game engines out there? Currently, I'm using Unity 3D, which is pretty impressive. Sure, making an entire game for a standalone engine requires a lot more overhead than a game mod, but at the same time the benefits are pretty numerous. For instance, you can stop worrying about compatibility, and making new objects (shapes, etc) is a whole lot easier than editing the existing ones in FA. And when all is said and done, with Unity you can even get it published and turn a profit...

Just my 2 cents.

Development of a standalone flight sim is already high on my list of priorities for the next ~2 years. I'm thinking of making it my final project for school.

It's hard for a lot of people to get into the really high end flight sims (ie DCS), and the mainstream titles (Ace Combat, HAWX) are much to simple for the rest. A spiritual successor to Fighters Anthology would be great, and I think it would help rekindle widespread interest in flying games.

Well, that's just my... 4 cents now.

Good luck!

Come back in 2 years and let us know how it went! Razz

Seriously now, I hope you do well, but I think you dont really understand all that is involved. Either way, good luck with your project...
