Default ACTUV is gone?

It seems that the webpage of ACTUV is down...so is this 'game' not available, anymore?

Or do I have missed any official statement?

Since Sonalysts stated that it had plenty of data several months ago, it is most likely that the site has been taken down because the sim has served its purpose and Sonalysts is done with the open testing.

Hawk, you aren't missing much. The game is very repetitive. There are only 5 levels in the game and the only difference is changing your ACTUV.

Not only that, all of the ACTUV drones except the GATOR suck.

It's just under archive status now. You can still download it.

ah cool...thx

edit: Ok, the gameplay is in deed a little limited, but this was expected. But I was a little surprised about the upgraded DW engine (1.05?)...widescreen support, also the P-8 model looks quite nice...also the water effects seems to be improved...

Now I stop better dreaming what a DW II might look like :-(
