*note: - im not intending, nor do i hope for, this thread to turn into a 'when will it come out' nagging thread*

Just a thought here;

Where did you guys get the idea to make BWO ? Why and how did you come up with the name 'Black Water Operations'?

Hrrmmm...I think the idea originated sometime in 2000.  Blackwater Operations as the title was something Kellan and I came up with pretty early on.  I really wanted to do something that was more covert operations (based on the SOC missions in FS2) with the idea that a very benign squadron number would be assigned to an ultra elite SOC squadron that would be permanently on call for the SOC.  Blackwater was chosen largely because of the "black" or "secret" (military speak here) nature of the operations and because it sounded cool :)

The original BWO was meant to have no MOD's and be 12 missions long.  The current BWO has a whole host of MODs and is roughly 40-45 missions long (can't remember exactly).  Development continues.

It'll be out before 2036. The question is, how long before 2036?

Seriously, I think they will get it out before 2008/2009

Some say around 2029 or 2036 when a meteor comes close to Earth.

I thought the apocalypse was supposed to be some kinda uber solar flare?
Fun while it lasted.

Then bitter.
