You have two options iffun you want a new improved game.
Option 1:- work within the very detailed and expandable game/scenario engine we have to tweak and aim devices, aircraft, ships, to make them work better within the confines of the exe routines we have.
Option 2 - Learn to write whatever language the exe is in (sincere apologies if you are ahead of me on this) and ask Matrix very, very nicely to give you confidential source code access to write a new game. Repeat for about the next 15 years until you get somewhere.
AS to option 2, there are posters here who write it off without consideration, but as a lawyer of 33 years experience I can assure you that the oft quoted barriers to this are not insurmountable, and the $ value of the magic number diminishes each passing day.
So if you are (a) retired & time enabled (b) really smart & (c) $ liquid, you should have a crack at it.
Here endeth the lessen.
The lawyer needs a lesson in the difference between lesson and lessen!
