I have been watching people compalin about Ubisoft for over a decade now. They are damn useless.

THey make a great idea for a game, rush it through development, try it for maybe 5 minutes, and package it out.

Rarely do they make patches - Far Cry 2 is a perfect example; I cant even guess how many bugs are in that, and SH series is riddled. Ubisoft do not CARE.

IN FC2, I was in that forum which was 'monitored' by Ubi men - so they say - like hell.

My advice is dont buy Ubisoft but try and persuade a top company to make sub sims etc. If the make the right ones, especially like SH4, they are on a winner.

imho the problem is mostly about developers and publishers understanding the sim audience and then finding a business model to support both parties.

There are a number of positive factors playing into this right now:
1. Re-invention of VR plays nicely into Subsim gameplay
2. Game engines like UE4 and CryEngine have never been so easily accesible for startups
3. Crowdfunding has produced some decent titles
4. Lock On Modern Air Combat (developed by ED, published by Ubisoft) went on basically to become DCS

What you need is someone like KillHouse Games to do what Eagle Dynamics did, have some licensing agreement with Ubisoft for a set number of years but essentially go it alone with a team imparting their experience and passion into a new product. Ubisoft would possibly give up some of the IP, rights and source code if there is a commercial interest for them I doubt they would do it out of kindness to a community.

Simmers want quality and virtual freedom
Developers want to be appreciated and rewarded for their efforts
Publishers want a large return on investment with as little risk as possible

I was pleased to see SH4 appear in Steam, but hope Steam can build in mods and/or patches to make it even better. At present it is picking up my disc based game saves, it should be separate; it is on sep drive under steam library.

I have Age of Empires 2 HD via steam, its an excellent example of steam providing patches that auto intergrate into game, when available, on start up.

I hope steam can do the same with SH4

Default SHO is rubbish

Even for a Beta version its terrible. Items that dont load, actions that dont function, UBI have gone down the SH5 road. I'll stick to SH3 commander and try and join a game old style LAN

I tried the steam version and it sucks, to be blunt. It kept freezing and crashing, so I asked for, and got, a refund.
