    Having had experience in this from a developer standpoint, it also depends on how far the company want to take it. Most companies protect their trademarks in terms of logos and branding, however some also enforce the design work, ie, any aircraft which significantly resembles their product also comes under their trademarks. Gulfstream may have a blanket protection of not just their business logos and branding, but also the likeness of their product, ie their aircraft.

    Yes TacPack inclusion is planned for FSX, but not until late 2014, early 2015 at the earliest due to existing commitments.

    Okay, best to clear things up. :) 1. The Raptor Driver product is an entirely new product, completely unrelated to the IRIS Platinum Series F-22 Raptor, which was re-branded to the Air Dominance Fighter. 2. The new Raptor Driver product is the SAME product as shipped with P3D V2.0 by Lockheed Martin, but marketed for Microsoft Flight Simulator X. 3. The Raptor Driver product features a far more accurate visual model, higher resolution artwork and far more detailed avionics amongst other things. In regards to the artwork, whilst everyone is entitled to their own opinion, (beauty is in the eye of the beholder after all!), Lockheed Martin were very happy and have repeatedly praised the work done on it. Certainly we couldn't ask for higher praise than that. :)

    Hi Jeff, Thank you for your feedback, should we decide to make a update to the A-10 in the future, we will seriously consider altering the position of the pod as requested. At this stage though, the volume of code to re-write makes it impractical for something which was essentially a free update. Our new Open Beta programs are in place so those with real world experience can in fact provide feedback to create a better product, we've seen this with both the PC-21 and more recently the new Raptor Driver. In addition, I have on many occasions invited those with real world knowledge of a particular aircraft in development to join the development team, though it does rely on people with knowledge to come forward and approach us during development. :) I apologise if you feel that we...

    John's right. At this stage there are no plans to move the pod, it was placed there after wide discussions within the coding team and moving it isn't as simple as moving the object in the model. It requires massive changes to code across the entire aircraft and various systems if it gets moved to another pylon. It was our opinion that its position, whilst it appears controversial, allowed the increased use of AGM-65s and freed up a vital station used by a number of stores.
