Some bad news for the small community of Richthofen's Skies folk posted by Mossie (Project Director):
The server supporting RS both live and dev is going to shut down permenatly. Vespa (of TT) has been supporting us in hosting the game and is unable to continue.There's also mention of development of a new Richthofen's Skies release, but that development may soon be halted. It seems I missed the original announcement back in September. It's good to see development continue. I remember playing the game back before its release in 2004, and despite the best efforts of the community, I think the drawbacks of the sim are due to the game engine. Even in 2004 it seemed outdated. I though there was something wrong when my then-ancient graphics card could run everything smoothly. But for all I know, maybe things have changed.
So shortly RS will go off-line.
No decision has been made about reopening, we have to discuss withtin the Dev Team.
More news later.
