As an owner of both dish and JF18, here is how it's done:
Take all the best features of both sims. Blend them together, and add a decent terrain engine. The take the whole thing and chuck it in the dustbin. Then start over.
Look in all fairness both games have their good moments, and I will keep and fly them both, But Graphically they are both bad in differing respects, and I was just never a fan of clickable cockpits.
Both look like they were programed by those under time and cost pressures. This is usually the case with under performing sims, it's so easy to spot.
With the shortage of good game programmers out there, they should start pressuring back for for more time and creative freedom.
