simon21 Posted January 28, 2016 Share Posted January 28, 2016 (edited) A horror of modding - just look at all those pink abrams reskins in CM to dateYou still have vanilla servers and also modded ones as an option if you want to try something new. That wouldn't be an issue in CM especially where you still to have to look for your opponent "manually".We got an answer. They've got a strange business model. Hopefully, in a few years they'll be trying to forget these debates ever happened.Red Baron, European Air WarThere, I gave you double what you asked for. I have heard of issues with that game. I have not played it. Was it supported by the developers much after launch ? I'm reading Microprose, which sends up a lot of red flags given that company got passed around.The online IL-2 community went through major ructions when the code was cracked and competing Mod Packs came out. You could only fly on the servers that were running the Mod you had installed.I think it might have shaken out into a single globally acceptable package eventually, but a lot of people had lost interest by then ( and the fact that there "could only be one" before everyone could fly against everyone else again, kinda plays against your point. )Mods killed IL-2 ? From what I recall it wasn't shipped in great condition. I only played near launch. It was a lovely game. -----I'm not suggesting that the developer quit and the mod crews take over. That rarely works out well. Especially, if the game was released before it was done. You have to differentiate between the mod destroying the community or the mod extending the life of an already poorly optimized game, and never fully resolving its existing problems. Let's just say I would hate to be someone involved in modding Batman Arkham Knight or AC : Unity.
