I’m posting this to announce the release of Airrace, an aircraft racing game. Visit the homepage for more details:

Airrace was mainly meant as a simple test application for Aviation, the flight simulator it runs on. As the main project I’m considering a WWII-era multiplayer combat simulator since this area is not covered by FlightGear, the otherwise excellent free flight simulator. The technology is 90% there as can be seen on Airrace but the project is nevertheless too large to fit into my spare time so I’m experimenting with whether it might be possible to raise enough funds from the community to work on it full-time. This is the general idea, you can see the full rationale here:
Discussion is always welcome but it would be best if it could be concentrated in one place, the aviation-devel mailing list for instance. See the homepage for info on how to subscribe there.
