Im not holding my breath that they actually finished Area 18 by Q1 2019, but that along with the new flight model is going to open up some great atmospheric dog fighting game play we have not had before.

Im seeing a lot of you in discord spending a lot of time around Jumptown!

If you know a good way to generate power from salt, then 3.5 is gonna make you a jillion-aire!

You make a great point, the people who want to dogfight like a WW2 sim will love atmospheric flight & dogfighting there, I'm hoping that dogfighting in space is different (but NOT jousting).

I’m trepidatious having actually become competent with the current model. My concern is around throttle control - right now I use twin sticks so throttle is a slider. With the new model I suspect I’m going to need to buy pedals and move throttle response to them?

You could do that I suppose. I don't use dual stick, I use just one, and a throttle with additional controls or just the keyboard and one stick. If I had foot pedals, they'd be for rudder control, but that's just me. the dual stick doesn't set up the way I think of flight.

I'm dual stick and don't have a slider for throttle control. I use a button for 100% and a button for 0% throttle. Works well enough. And when I need more precision I'm just using the thrusters.

In 3.5 I'm looking forward to them releasing the female avatars for the players that want to use them as well as the new character facial options so that each of us can feel unique to a degree. I believe that the introduction of the female avatars will help encourage lady players to becoming more interested in backing if they are currently on the fence. More backers joining will be good for the game long term.
