What everyone is going to see is a lot of dedication and passion coming your way via IPACS, however, only a little slower and steadier that some might wish for. For IPACS the motto is quality over quantity, and slow and steady wins the race
By the way, ATC (Air Traffic Control) is going to be a very nice major feature. And it's currently being worked on by the brilliant Dr. Marc Borchers. This will still take more time to complete.
So my question is, how far from the technicality of ATC is AI?
It seems that once you have something that can plot your plane and direct it competently (as well as the sim already having autopilot) that it's not a huge jump from there to at least rudimentary AI planes. Or are they completely different subjects?
