Gyro override! I was wondering when this was going to be added.. apparently sooner than I had expected!

I love how the modding/workshop support keeps getting improvements. Modding can drastically increase the game's 'lifetime' so decent modding support is both awesome for the players and has the potential of increasing sales :) Thanks, developers!

I love these reports, I'm not an aircraft fanatic or anything so I learn a lot of new stuff every time, even though you don't really go into tiny details (which is in my opinion a good thing though).

That VTOL variant is so interesting :P The design reminds me of an AWACS plane. Illuminati AWACS anyone?

Yeah it's a good opportunity to get some extra money from the people that don't want to pay the full price I suppose. I guess I should just see such bundles as, say, Steam sales, which is where I buy the games I'm not interested in enough to pay the full price. (Not sure if that sentence is correct but hopefully you get the point)

Metalspy Oct 30 2011, 1:51pm says:

"Hmm, another bundle?" was exactly my first thought (although I thought it in Dutch). It is a nice initiative, I guess I'm just jealous I've paid too much for those games when I bought them at release. It's a shame indie games seem to be treated like budget games these days though. Not because they're 'indie', which seems to be some kind of status nowadays, but because most developers deserve a higher reward for their labour.

EDIT: Shouldn't it be "Awesome, love it and BOUGHT the games" and "Great, didn't buy this one THOUGH", or am I missing something (a pun perhaps)?

I've heard that one before, but as far as I could find EA was the distributor, not the publisher. It would make Valve not-indie if EA is publishing their games, yes.

Of course they would still be creators of indie games because they made a couple of games without having an 'external' publisher. So they would be a non-indie studio with indie games! ... I think.

When we're talking about code, yes I do 'reinvent the wheel'. I'm currently still in the first learning phase so to speak, and I believe that I will learn a lot more if I analyze existing programs/parts of programs and try to write them myself. That way I know exactly what I'm working towards, while also gaining experience with how to structure my programs.

Of course I don't plan on doing this my whole (hopefully in the future professional) coding career long, because that would be a waste of time. But for learning purposes it's in my opinion a very valuable thing to do.

Here we go again, the mod-planning-to-go-commercial rage. While I can understand both sides (people being angry at the devs; the devs trying to go commercial) I'm honestly surprised every time I read the comments on such an article. Mod/game developers owe their fans nothing really and while it's 'sad' that we have to pay for something that could've been free it's still the choice of the developer. If they decide to ask money for their work (which is perfectly fine of course, time is a very valuable thing) and potentially lose fans/buyers, so be it. Is it really that hard to accept that? Also, not getting downvoted for not being angry for once would be really nice.
