    The modeling of this game never ceases to amaze me.

    Re: Flat Earth?

    Joke apart, I have a technical question:

    This happened yesterday after the DD server crashed for some reason.
    Since we all lost connection to the server, how come DRock and I both saw the exact same behavior of that AI hurricane, that kept climbing and climbing to astronomical heights (no pun intended).
    I would have expected every flying aircraft to freeze in its last known position after the server crashed, since we would not be receiving position updates from the server...

    The moment the client gets no new info from the server re a position of a plane, it moves the plane along the last known vector (which necessarily is the same on your and DRocks clients) until it does receive new info - in this case never.

    You see that with aircraft of players with really bad ping, too.

    The local brighton chapter got in the news for meeting up in their chosen venue.... a pub... also call The Globe.

    I didn't attend. I think its fair to say I have a more rounded opinion.
