"Also the update on December 18th will be including many bug fixes that you have asked for along with some Flight Model tweaks that have long been requested by ROF users. "
"...we have taken into account the general comments on the forums about various FMs and attempted to tweak them to match the requests. But we need to warn everyone, changing FMs can lead to unforeseen technical issues and unintended consequences. The endless debates about flight models will likely continue no matter what we do or how hard we try to make it right. So, with that in mind, this is likely the last attempt to tweak existing FMs in ROF. We’ve given it our best shot and we hope you find them acceptable."

All these updates will take us almost two months to be completed and released: we'll start on December 18th and plan to finish in January 2015. This renewal process starts today with transferring everything we made for ILYA Muromets project into Rise of Flight.
So, on Dec 18th, we'll have free access to the Eastern Front map and the option to purchase the Ilya Muromets bomber, formerly sponsored by the Russian Historical Military Society - ("Death to Moose and Squirrel!") I think we can use the Eastern Front map with the any of the existing ROF planes and it could provide a nice change of scenery and campaign possibilities (although I don't know what the terrain looks like). The other FM tweeks and updates will be spread over the next couple of weeks.
Hopefully, this won't be a bumpy ride, but strap on your crash helmet anyway. The upcoming debates over the FM changes will probably be crazy with much wailing and gnashing of teeth from both Entente and Central alike!
Oh yes - one other thing, we'll soon have mouse flight-control support. How they'll train these mice to fly, I have no idea! Unleash the Steam monkeys!

Oh crap. most of the complaints, might have come from the allies.
Well, I think it might feel that way often, but to be fair there have been a TON of threads about the under-performance of the albatrii, the over-performance of the Camel, and other legitimate gripes from the central side. Gavagai, as controversial and abrasive as he can be, has certainly made many of these points well known by now, and with evidence to support such changes.
I think the right approach will probably be: don't get your hopes up, but lets not crucify it until we see it.
If nothing else, I'm just glad to know that the game hasn't become abandonware. Maybe some of our old multiplayer friends will come back in the not too distant future?
