...here is an interesting "hint" about the future that may be of interest:"Check out this scripting language, as it would be VERY useful to learn it... http://www.lua.org/ "This is a direct quote from PC12's blog:http://paul-flightsimguy.spaces.live.com/b...565FB!770.entryIt's interesting to note the number of popular game titles that use Lua:http://www.lua.org/uses.htmlsee also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lua_%28progra...29#Applications- Lucasarts * Grim Fandango * Escape from Monkey Island- Bioware * Neverwinter Nights * MDK2 Here is a well written "introduction" to how Lua is being used in modern game development:http://www.gamedev.net/reference/articles/article1932.aspIt is clear from Paul's "hint" that Lua will be used in Mission development. It doesn't seem much of a stretch to imagine Lua perhaps being implemented as an adjunct to -if not a replacement for- other areas of the sim, such as gauge development, AI, flight modeling, and dynamic scenery modeling.

Thanks for the head's up. Yeah, LUA is very popular and will actually drive DCS' Black Shark when it is released. I welcome this as GREAT news and hope that it does find its way to other parts of the sim.
