If you are really interested in this, you could scan yourself
through the forums to find people who are still waiting
for qualified answers to their questions. The CTD problem exists since
a year now and already this one year ago the answer was "we are checking with LM".
Obviously nothing happend since then. Same with multiple GPU. Fuel consumption is
still an issue as well etc. Instead of focusing on problems, a symbolic release date
of 7/17 had to be reached. After this was done, no more activities on the 717.
Current situation now is that we here in the forum are self-entertaining us,
You pass by 2 times a month, appologising at lot, asking people with questions
for more informations so that time goes by for collecting and preparing those.
And still the standard-phrase "we are checking with LM". No status, no timeline, nothing helpful, no progress.
Even for repaints it is not for sure after "checking with LM" that the texture structure does not
change again anymore.
Perhaps some of us are a little bit spoiled of the Open Beta Phase and that kind of working
together with development in a way the community rarely experienced before.
It is also understandable that this level cannot to be continued forever.
But it can be expected that a product will be supported continuously and that a communication
about it´s progress goes on. All this is currently not the case.
Sometimes I have doubts that the former TFDi still exists.
