Are you able to say how much is done or what else needs to be updated?

It's not very useful saying this to users, since they don't possibly have any idea how we work and in which order we do things, how much it took to do the things we already did (and what else we were busy with in the meantime), and how much will take doing the things still missing.

Can you throw us another bone to chew on? A screenshot or a video? :) It's been a while.

With the announcements of the new GSX, does that mean that ORD v2 will be delayed even more?

Nothing in the upcoming GSX update has any effect on KORD V2, which is progressing just fine and independently from it.

was the KORD project cancelled? I find it troubling all we get our GSX updates that put a little shine on vehicles.

Why don't you read the previous quote by Umberto, which he posted before you.

That's exactly the opposite of what I just said...

I find even more troubling that you haven't got the slightest clue about what the next update is about. A "little shine on vehicles", really ? What's your problem ?  

1) We spent about 5 months of hard work of remodeling almost all vehicles in GSX, all animations.

2) We made some very complex programming (Render to Texture in DirectX 11, do you even have the slightest idea how hard is to program DX11 in C++ ? Guess why most game developers use pre-made graphic engines, like Unreal or Unity...), to increase the efficiency of of the simulator by drastically reducing the number of repaints, and make it easier for users to create their own operators.

3) Which obviously came with lots of programming on the editor, to update the UI to allow this.

4) And lots of programming to totally change the scoring system and the operator selection

5) We added a whole new refuel vehicle, with an animation and an interaction between the two character so complex, that took about two months just for that one.

6) And the additional programming that went with it

All of this to make a FREE update for GSX. What idiots we are: in the same time we could have finished KORD, and sell you something, instead of giving away our work for a FREE update, that is "just a little shine".

Amazing how this specific topic died (so-to-speak on April 7th), then after the release of KLAS and SEQM, this topic comes back to life.

I too cannot wait for KORD V2 and I trust that it will be worth the wait.

KORD is a big deal in this community, V2 will likely make KORD an even bigger deal.  ;D

And considering FlyTampa previewed KLAS 2 years ago, in April 2017

https://pcflight.net/flytampa-release-first-preview-las-vegas-klas/

It's very funny someone would assume KORD might have a problem, considering we published the first Preview on March 2018 so, it's "only" last year, not 2 years ago.

- And KORD is more than twice the size of KLAS ( we know a thing or two about *both* )

- And KLAS is not constantly changing as we speak, like KORD.

It would be enough to check Navigraph updates between March 2019 and April 2019, a new taxiway has been added, another one has been removed, and several of them has changed their names, causing all the vertical and horizontal signs to change as well.

A whole new American Airlines hangar has just been built, and yes, we added that one TODAY! And of course, in 2021 a lot of changes will happen. And there are 5 different proposals to bid for the look of the new terminal.

Some people really don't have the faintest idea what does it mean doing KORD in 2018/2019

I agree Umberto.

Three things I presently look forward to in flight simming... no... five things; FSDT KORD V2 - FSAerodata Airport updater - the GSX update - a SODE update - and P3Dv5 ;D

Question is who is going to release their version first? With a finally updated version of KORD, whoever releases their version first is probably going to take the market on this well needed release. And with Drzewiecki releasing at least 2 airports in that current region for 1 price. Going to be interesting who gets the major downloads.
