Targetware Open Beta Begins
9:02 AM | Tim Morgan | Comment on this story

Sickware, creators of the much-anticipated Targetware engine, has announced the commencement of their open-beta period. For a limited time, players can enjoy playing Targetware mods free of charge through their servers. The two mods available at this point are Target Korea and Target Rabaul, with Target Flanders expected sometime in the future.

The Targetware project is a community-based flight simulation development project. Using Sickware's provided tools (some of which are currently available for download), players can design theaters in which to battle and wage war, or they can participate in combat within theaters others have designed. Both mods available for beta testing realistically simulate the aerial wars over Rabaul in 1943 and Korea in the early 1950's. Should they desire it, Target Rabaul promises pilots of piston-engine aircraft the option of unprecedented control over their powerplants, a feature unique among Macintosh flight simulators. In addition, a massively-multiplayer system of strategy has been implemented, ensuring that players' victories are not without purpose.

The Targetware engine beta requires Mac OS X 10.1 or later. Both the Target Korea and Target Rabaul mods are available to download from within the engine. The open beta period will be free, but upon its termination, a $10-per-month fee will be required for access to Targetware and its mods.
