Warbirds III Interview
JL: WarBirds III is NOT a port; it was a complete redesign. No code was used from WarBirds 2.77. The only thing the two games have in common is they share the same name and are World War II flight sims.
WarBirds III is platform independent; we designed it that way. This enables us to make changes to the sim, so that in the future we can add new things to the game, per our player’s tastes. Online games like WarBirds III has a long shelf life and the game has to change to keep fresh. As deplorers we must be able to deploy changes fast and cost effectively. WarBirds III is UI independent of the operating environment. I did not split the code tree between the Macintosh and Windows. In other words the same code that works on the Macintosh works in Windows.
