Dear everyone,

 

For almost three years we’ve been enjoying your overwhelming interest and support, successfully walking a very difficult road together and reaching a highly professional level in game development for our beloved platform –Digital Combat Simulator.

 

As you know, a business development resembles real life in many aspects; and apart from the amazing experiences we’ve had these years, there have also been some business and management issues and disagreements within our team. As in real life, problems have to be dealt with in a rational manner in order to keep things moving forward. This often results in having to make hard decisions for a better and more secure future.

 

The original “Leatherneck Simulations” four-people team has decided to part ways: three of us (Michael, Radu and Novak) will remain under one umbrella by creating a new company – MAGNITUDE 3 LLC, based in Florida, USA.

 

MAGNITUDE 3 LLC has acquired the rights to the “Leatherneck Simulations” brand and DCS: MiG-21Bis module. At the moment, we have three permanent staff members and two contract members.

 

Nicholas Dackard has acquired the rights for the DCS: AJS-37 Viggen and DCS: F14-A/B projects, which will be branded under a different company.

 

As for the future of “Leatherneck Simulations” and MAGNITUDE 3 LLC, here’s our agenda.

 

Our short-terms goals (3 months, JAN-MAR 2017) for MAGNITUDE 3 are:

- Regain financial stability,

- Setup stable development infrastructure and staff,

- Setup stable customer support infrastructure and services.

 

Our medium-term goals (12 months, JAN 2017-JAN 2018) are:

- Improve staff work flow,

- Release a new DCS module, which is now in development,

- Improve customer support for increased workload for modules support.

 

Our long-term goals (24+ months) are:

- Stabilize stuff work flow (permanent stuff members),

- Release another DCS module.

 

Our permanent goals are to create superb DCS modules and support our customers.

 

We are looking forward to these new challenges and sincerely hope to amaze you again with the modules we are developing for DCS.

 

Last, but not least, we want to express our thanks and gratitude to TFC and Eagle Dynamics for helping through this complex transition.

 

Wishing you all the best,

 

“Leatherneck Simulations” guys, MAGNITUDE 3 LLC

Leatherneck Sim, MAGNITUDE 3 LLC, contracted

 

OK, thanks. Just asking as it's not mentioned in the original post. Unless of course that's one of the modules mentioned as in development which now I presume it is.

Best of luck to everyone. What I don't understand however, will MAGNITUDE 3 LLC continue to work on the DCS: F14-A/B projects or is it left to Nicholas Dackard?

It's rater cleary stated:

"Nicholas Dackard has acquired the rights for the DCS: AJS-37 Viggen and DCS: F14-A/B projects, which will be branded under a different company."

F/A-18, F-16, F-14, M-2000C, A-10C, AV-8B, AJS-37 Viggen, F-5E-3, F-86F, MiG-21bis, MiG-15bis, L-39 Albatros, C-101 Aviojet, P-51D, Spitfire LF Mk. IX, Bf 109 4-K, UH-1H, Mi-8, Ka-50, NTTR, Normandy, Persian Gulf... and not enough time to fully enjoy it all

Correct.

Good luck to all!

The way I see it; two companies = 2 modules being released at the same or almost the same time! Not that I've ever had wished for this

Although from what I understand there is only one guy that is doing the Viggen and F14? That doesn't sound reassuring honestly.

 

Nah, that one guy is just the boss. ;)

Best of luck! You could make a DCS: Fuel Truck and I'd still support you :) (please don't force me to be a man of my word. haha)

 

This looks like it's been in the works for a while, since it's March, and your line says

Our short-terms goals (3 months, JAN-MAR 2017) for MAGNITUDE 3 are:

- Regain financial stability,

- Setup stable development infrastructure and staff,

- Setup stable customer support infrastructure and services.

 

I hope you've already met your first goal, because you're already 3 months into your second one!

 

Looking forward to seeing what you and your team are able to achieve
