    Unhappy Well, its official

    No more US planes for FB/PF

    It seems certain US manufactureres are taking legal steps against Maddox Games for using their 60 year old aircraft without permission.

    You'd think they would have something better to do, but I suppose where a dollar can be made...

    You really suprised by this?, This happens with all games - Fifa has to pay heavily to use real player names etc, same with all the other sports type games. I don't see why this is any different.

    Be it current or old planes. Now if the names of the planes where changed to be say fighter 1, 2, 3 etc, they might not have any leg to stand on, as the models would be Maddox's property as they certainly built them on their own, and as much as they are good models they are no way property of any Manufacturers.

    I hope it doesn't come to anything but i can see the manufacturers point too.

    must be cos Microsoft always pays dividends to the people who's planes THEY use....

    so they probably got the arse that the best flight sim ever made wasn't paying royalties to the original owners and thought "we'll stir some pooh over THIS one "

    Its probably as simple as that

    Thank heavens for the private developers...the skin makes...the map makers....

    It'll be Counterstrike in the skies

    What full of 14 year old "n00bs" with their aimbots and "cloud hacks" installed so they can turn from rubbish pilots into "1337" russian pilots. I would not wish that on anybody.

    that happens a fair bit already.

    Speedhack is a good/bad example.

    Well it is just Northrop-Grumman at the moment, other manufacturers may follow suit, but there's no reason to believe they will yet.
    To err is human. To really foul things up ... you need a computer.
