A principios de 1966, los EE.UU se instalaron en Marble Mountain (las montañas de mármol - Vietnam), ni siquiera aquello estaba en los mapas con nombre alguno. Un año antes el general americano Victor Krulak, había llegado a aquel lejano lugar para elegir el mejor sitio para hacer un campo de aviación. Una vez elegido un oficial naval que le acompañaba, le comentó que ese sitio no estaba marcado en los mapas. Y sin cortarse un pelo el general Krulak respondió, “este lugar se llamaba Chu lai.
Y Chu lai fue el nombre con el que figuró en los mapas desde entonces hasta la fecha de hoy,. Chu lai, provincia de Quang Tin.
Lo que no sabe casi nadie, es que el nombre de Chu lai, se lo había inventado el general Krulak, y lo hizo con su nombre propio en caracteres chinos mandarín, por lo que “ chu lai “ es realmente el nombre del general krulak. , que tío,, no me explico como perdieron la guerra,, debe ser que se perdió primero en los EE.UU,
Siempre recuerdo aquella frase, donde el soldado le dice al general… mi general, la guerra ha terminado,, y el general con cara de poker pregunta …lo ha dicho la CNN ???, y el soldado responde, no Sr. Lo ha dicho el Departamento de Defensa…. Y el general espetó… siga bombardeando.

Hi aWac9
I think this audiopodcast containing interview and discussion with a Microprose team member can give a lot of answers to your questions...and even more....making it more clear what and when microprose will come up with....in short .."where they want to go"  Of course its not outerra related so its uncorrect to post it on the outerra forum ..but its my impression that its also "not excluded" that some of their games will be outerra based...maybe not the mighty eight B17 one. Its a very long podcast but really very interesting for all who love to fly either as sim or as game...from my side I would be extremely glad to contribute with mods to any outerra based game that will appear either from microprose or from the outerra devs themselfs..(if these games will support modding...which maybe is not obvious) . Also it seems that we will get some hints from microprose in the next few months about lots of their upcoming games

Hi Fly77... . the graphics look great ,, they are great ,, but we don't know where Microprose wants to go with the simulators. I read that they will be arcade-type games, without interacting with the objects ,, (so it discards an important number of communities of this type of games from the 2ª WW ,,,,, which should not be a very large niche), if that it is so ,,, why invest time and money in making a detailed radio station ?. I don't understand it very well. I suppose they will have studied it and they won't be blind, but when someone makes a game they have to know some answers ... who will buy it ... how many? ... is it profitable? ,,, etc. if you do not manage that data, it is preferable to do other things ..., making a game is expensive, very expensive, and if it is aimed at a specific community, the margin narrows even more.
Now ,, if you make a flight simulator where you can interact, it has AI, it has good graphics and it is accompanied by Outerra ,, then the fan can be opened.
I have the impression that Microprose has a hobi, and can afford it.
I have a friend who harvests wine ,, he does it with love, and the products he adds to the soil are natural, there is no pesticide ,,,, but when I beg the grape, the harvest is little and produces little wine ... I think that It is not profitable, but we enjoy so much every time he takes out a bottle and we drink that wine ... it is a pleasure ... I think he can also afford it, I do not, but I have it as a friend.

PD: Nothing would make me as happy as flying through clouds of all kinds with a small plane and all its clickable and operational instruments inside Outerra ... it would be like having a friend.

En el Sur de Andalucía - España - Se encuentra el Desierto de Almería,, . Este desierto, fue testigo de innumerables películas de western, muchas de ellas realizadas por Clint Eastwood, que fue en estas películas donde se dio a conocer como actor. entre muchas citaré algunas:
Por un puñado de dólares (1964) - La muerte tenía un precio (1965) - El bueno, el feo y el malo (1966) - Los cuatro truhanes (1968) - Les llaman y les llamaban sinvergüenzas (1972) - En el Oeste se puede hacer, amigo (1972) - Una razón para vivir y una para morir (1973) - Un hombre llamado Noon (1973), etc..eran las conocidas como espaguetis western... y muchas de esas películas llevaban música de el compositor y director de orquesta Ennio Morricone,, que hoy a los 91 años ha fallecido.. descanse en paz.

El desierto de Almería

Outerra had such promise.........

But as I said on this forum, years ago, there was no real sense of urgency from the developers.

It was said at the time that Outerra would need about ten years to really hit its stride, but as I also said at the time, the world was not in any way likely to just sit around waiting, and Outerra had every possibility of being first to the table and last for dinner.

Which seems to be the case, as world engines with life-sized planets with 21st century, impressive graphics proliferate, while Outerra looks pretty much exactly like it looked years ago, when dinosaurs walked the earth.

I'm rooting for the Outerra guys in theory, but in practice, I feel like time has shown them talking a good game, while nothing much happens.

I hope I'm wrong!

Isla Attu
En el extremo más occidental de las Islas Aleutianas (Alaska – EE.UU), se encuentra la isla Attu.
Poco después del bombardeo de Pearl Harbor en la 2ª WW, los japones invadieron la isla de Attu, con la intención de frenar cualquier ataque americano desde la isla e incluso como contención de Rusia por si embistiera hacia oriente.
aproximadamente fueron unos 2400 soldados japones, era muy difícil sobrevivir en aquellas latitudes, y los americanos tenían la isla bloqueada,, fue en el año 1943 cuando se decidió atacar la isla para recuperar la soberanía. Fue terrible, una guerra moderna ejecutada cuerpo a cuerpo. En la tundra se luchaba metro a metro. Murieron 3929 americanos y todos los japones salvo 28 prisioneros.
Los americanos construyeron la base Navy town , que más tarde fue abandonada..
Hoy en día habitan 20 personas…. Pero puedes llegar volando.

I see...still a lot of work to do...yes I agree : probably unavoidable work ...as outerra is an almost perfect virtual world it seems somehow born to be used with VR....so it should be there sooner or later....and very well useable....it seems though that this will be achieved reliably only at the last mile ..unless it gains higher priority than getting us a "game"..wait and see.
