The interview is here, very worth reading:
What interested me and surprised me most is when they talked about helicopter. Torsten said: "we already have the physics engine for helicopters for our R/C model simulator, so in theory we can upgrade this engine a little, which would allow us to simulate large helicopters. If the physics in the small scale are ‘right’, its not that much work to get it right for bigger helicopters. "
I am so happy to read about that, but then I almost cried when I read his following words: "Its just that demand for helicopters is a lot lower compared to the other features that have been requested, so we are putting a lower priority on helicopters for now."
Oh no! I have been reading every post in the Steam Aerofly forum, and there is so much demand for helicopters: http://steamcommunity.com/app/434030/dis…=1&q=helicopter
I just can't understand why you should think helicopter is low on demand for AFS2. Everybody loves helicopter, but there are more reasons for us to ask for a helicopter for AFS2, because your most beautiful and realistic scenery is best suited for helicopter flying. It's the heli simmer's dream come true, and you are not seeing this... Oh no, oh no!
Think of your magnificent New York DLC, think of your Switzerland DLC, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Innsbruck...can you find a better flight sim for a helicopter to fly in? You are not seeing the beauty of yourself, and you are wasting it. I feel heartbroken.
Should I also add that you already have 18 air crafts covering major categories from civilian to military, from GA to Airliner, from propeller driven to jet, with helicopter as the only missing part? Please, please!
