Sickware has certified the first community add-on for its Targetware series of massive multiplayer online flight sims; the first game, Target Korea, is expected to ship later this year. The add-on skin, titled "Paper Tiger", is based upon the aircraft of Capt. Harold "Hal" Fischer of the 39th Fighter Squadron and was created by Mike "Oil Can" Caulk. Players may fly their F86-F30 Sabre in the actual game using this unique skin, or any other provided by Targetware and the add-on development community.
Using this unique capability of Targetware's "open architecture", entire groups of players may represent their individual squad identifications and personal aircraft markings, as opposed to all aircraft types looking exactly the same. To date, this capability has been extremely limited within massively multi-player on-line flight simulations. Its availability in Targetware products presents outstanding opportunities for the creation of more historical and realistic community events.
