Interview with Oleg on SIMHQ

http://www.simhq.com/_air11/air_341a.html

I start to like the guy again as he personally dislikes the following:

Quote:
Doug: What are your current thoughts on CP and DRM?
Oleg:
I dislike any copy protection, but that’s up to the publisher to decide. In general, it’s a very complex question, and to properly address all the issues I’d probably need at least as much space as the rest of this interview.
Doug: What do you think about having players connect to the Internet 100% of the time as they are playing?
Oleg: I am not a big fan of these things. Many players, especially in less developed parts of the world, still to this day play only single-player and barely use the Internet even if they have Internet access at all.
and this hurts a bit:

Quote:
Doug: A few more questions (for now) on Storm of War: Battle of Britain before we move to the next topic area.
You said recently you want it released for the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. That would be in September 2010. Are you confident flight simmers around the world will be flying Storm of War: Battle of Britain in October 2010?
Oleg: Yes, it is our general plan. Maybe it will arrive earlier. I can't say right now the exact date. But by October 2010 (if not before) Storm of War: Battle of Britain should have many thousands of users.
Seems we have to wait a bit longer, but hell as long it is worth it.

I hope we are not disappointed.

By that time I should have bought a new rig.

Same was thought about IL2, the project was 4 years in development before its release in 2001.

Oleg Maddox - We are pleased to announce that, after 15 years of work, Storm of War: Battle of Britain is finally ready to be released. Eight years ago, as many of you are aware, we changed the game's timeframe that originally spanned 5 years... to 29 years, starting in August 1914 and ending in September 1945.

An update from Oleg at the banana forums
Quote:
Hello everyone,

I know many of you have been eagerly awaiting news. I hope this will be worth the wait. We are now at the stage where we'll be providing more regular updates. Remember when my Friday Updates happened every Friday?

These shots today showcase the environemnt from a small test map that will be one of the online maps shipping with the game.

We're working hard on finding the perfect visual balance, and many of the colors you see today are not final: sky, clouds, grass, trees, water, etc, are all being finetuned. As some of you may know, I'm a professional photographer as well, so perfect visual presentation is a very important goal for me.
