As initiated a couple months ago, we try to give a bit more regular updates on where we stand and the latest news from the team…
Well, it is time for a new update.
As 4.35 Update 3 is out, we just want to remind people that 2 bugs were found after release and we advise you to take a look at:
AI Overhead fix:

RWR Missile fix:

We understand that having to process this manually isn’t the best but this is the best way for us to communicate around easy fixes without having to go through a full update delivery process.
In the future, we’ll have to look for other ways to distributes files (but nothing simple for now as we have to be transparent with the IP holder of Falcon 4.0).
At this stage, consider Falcon BMS 4.35 end of life as the teams are focusing on the next big version.
To bring down the noise we constantly hear from the community, let me put things straight:
No… Falcon BMS 4.36 will not be released for Xmas…
Although we would have all loved to bring you that surprise, it is unrealistic at this stage as the beta testing process is pretty much ongoing and most of us have daily jobs that intensify closer to holidays…
We want to make sure we bring a stable and enjoyable version to you guys (hopefully without too many issues).
At this stage, we don’t know how long this will take but you will surely see the signs when we’re ready!
Don’t worry, this time, the release isn’t blocked due to documentation as we radically changed our documentation approach since the release of 4.35…
This is a very sensitive topic as you must know that we are constantly being reminded that we’re not alone and people expectations are shifting over the years (industry standard are obviously moving).
This won’t be news to the old timers but for the “fresh” BMS pilots, we need to put things in perspective:
- We are a handful of people
- We do that on our spare time without revenue
- We put a lot of love in our work and are very proud of what we do
- We always look for the best realism we can implement (based on our information and skills)
- We love having community contributions and always look for new talents…
In the end, don’t worry, you’re in for a big surprise as always! We want to surprise you and have fun doing what we do!
The way see it: 4.36 will rock your world and 4.37 will revolutionize your GFX card
(that’s all, I’ll say… Don’t try to get more out of me! )
One last word…
As you must feel, we enter a phase where the team is under tension to cater for all (4.36 preparation, work / life balance, re-organizing our way of working internally, …).
So please be patient with us, we’ll be a bit more quiet in the coming weeks…
In the meantime, stay safe, be patient, fly BMS and don’t believe everything people tell you (yes YouTube… I am looking at you )
We love you!
