Greetings, for a long time the prospect of Condor 3.0 has been a running joke around here, since at least 2018 that I'm aware of, probably longer. I've periodically popped in to see if there's any progress and get what amounts to a blowoff with just enough of a hint that something may actually be being done to keep the dream alive.

Can Uros, GR, OXO or anyone connected with the dev team please let us know what is really going on with straight answers? We have been very patient and it would be nice to be told the truth where this project actually stands.

If it's lack of funds we can organize a kickstarter/gofundme/patrean/etc (I'd be happy to help) to make it happen right now, preferably with the original team that made this fine sim. However at this point they're not up for it or are too busy with life still and nothing is happening it's time to be honest and say so, that way the community can move on instead of waiting for something that is not going to happen.

VR is upon us and sailplane flight is a perfect fit in every way and never have such possibilities been so accessible. Lets not collectively blow this opportunity to showcase soaring to masses thirsty for quality VR experiences or waste any more of our time when we could be flying gliders in VR today.

DX12 is obsolete, even for 4d monitors or projection. Even just porting Condor to DX13/14/15 would be satisfactory, as the only thing Condor truly lacks is pixels and is still the goto soaring simulator. This is the most significant contribution to soaring that anyone could make at this time, and I'm sure I'm not alone wanting to throw money or time at it to make it happen.

Not funny.

I'm considering suspending anyone who starts a V3 thread. :twisted:

No reason to wait, right? we're all wondering how long it will be untill 3.0 is realeased. Currently i'm downloading Condor 2, and i wonder just for how much longer will we be stuck with this old version that's been the same and recieved no updates since 21.02.2018.

/sarcasm end

Really looking forward to flying in condor 2 :D it looks like a great update from V1. Good job condor team!

This is the first time I've been on the form for a good while, years maybe. With the prospect of purchasing V2 this was the first Thread I came to. As you say, I think it would be best if this thread was removed as it's only potentially going to stop people from purchasing V2 if they seriously think a V3 is only imminent. All of us originally involved in V1 know just how much effort it takes to make such big jumps. V2 might just persuade me to start flying Condor again.

I know it was only a joke but we all know what we are like.

Best of luck with Version 2 guys.
