Full release or early access planned?

Massively early doors and it's likely something being discussed but what do we reckon? Will we see this released as a complete game or the main flight mechanics and a couple of planes as early access then progressively updated?

This seems the norm these days so I was curious.

I can't imagine, in the modern track of flight sim development, there won't be an early access period. It makes sense for the producer from both a revenue stream and marketing/generating hype. Not to mention community testing and bug squashing perspectives.

I’m a big fan of early access if things are for sure going to get done. I’ve used it to great results in my old position as we all remember. It also depends on what we are looking to do and how we are funded. Right now I don’t have an answer on how that will quite shake out.

Considering the community reaction I think crowdfunding may well be a viable option? I'm sure there's others besides myself wiling to chuck money at you without a second thought, either way I hope you get what you need for this project it's something I think the community has been crying out for for some time. I appreciate the response though, I know you're innundated with questions atm, thank you.

I’d support a crowd-funding effort. I’ve been waiting way too long for something like this and personally wouldn’t have qualms about investing it this sim’s future ahead of time. Just my personal opinion obviously.

I would love to support both Crowfunding or Early access if needed. I am sure that with good development info and being open of what we are getting, you guys will get excellent results.

If it gets to point where there is just a map, a flyable wildcat and flyable zero and a couple AI assets to show solid progress, I'd happily buy into the Early Access.

Just give me a carrier and two adversarial fighters as a technology/proof of concept demonstrator and I’ll buy five copies for me and four random forum members.
