Fair points all round. I'm not really in a position to argue one way or the other. Time will tell whether this project will deliver or whether the naysayers get to say "Told you so". I prefer to stay on the optimitic side. I can wait for Squadron until CR is happy with it. In the meantime, SC is...
Not sure I understand the incompatibility angle, tbh. These are two different games, yes, but they share a common codebase, which means improvements made to the one carries over to the other.

It's not finished yet, but given that it's CR's next project and the spiritual successor to Wing Commander, you should probably look into Star Citizen and Squadron 42 at some point.
Wowza! This is quite something. I had a few Microprose titles I played for hours on end.
