Hi Steve!
Thanks for Aurora! Its peeked my interest for several years now, but I just have to find the time to properly sit down with it some day.
Liked the Lets plays on YT from various people.
It also pointed me to StarFire 3rdR which I am trying to learn and make ready for forum play atm.

Third Edition Starfire is a great game. A small portion of the code in Aurora survives from an assistant program I created to play 3rdR. In fact, playing Starfire ultimately led to Aurora.

Hi Steve. Really looking forward to Aurora C#. Looked through the thread, but didn't see an answer to a question i have. Will the fighter UI be getting simplified? Personally I find managing large groups of fighters a little clunky and tedious the last time I played.

The new fleet window has a naval organisation tree. You can set the fighters as a sub-fleet and then detach/attach them as a group.

I’d buy any naval game that -when a ship fired its large main guns- looked somewhat like the battleship in the 11 second mark below. Sounds nit-picky but I want to feel like it’s a powerful gun. Most just have a ball of Orange that appears and then turns black...but it doesn’t “roll”

That was the selling point of Naval Action for me. It actually looks like a cannon firing

That's wonderful!

All this talk makes me want to install.  I’m concentrating on the F-15 and will fight all urge to learn other planes.

I managed to screw the Brittonian pooch in about 10 turns, my first campaign. Since then I restarted and am doing better but don't underestimate this game, it can Bitch-slap you outta nowhere.

I've never even installed most of the modules I purchased.  I know I have the Mi-8 and Huey and I've never installed those.  I'd really like to learn the MiG-21...I think I logged about 20 minutes of flight time on that since I bought it a couple of years ago.   ::)
