FREE for everyone:
Paid on release
P-51 (from DCS World)
FW-190D (from DCS World)
If you back at a $20 level, you can pick a P-51 or FW-190D.
If you back at a $40 level, you will have both.
If you already own a DCS World P-51 and/or FW-190, then obviously no one wants you to have to pay for anything twice.
If we reach stretch goals, then the story changes.
Free aircraft list will most likely not change.
Backing at $20 still gets you one of the larger variety of paid aircraft.
$40 or above still gets you ALL of the initial flyables.
None of the aircraft released in future updates are covered by any of this.

I like the G. It's just we currently can only make one variant of the 109, and we picked the K as we have the best data on it.
I don't want to make empty promises or vaguely hint at something, but I really liked having multiple variants of the same plane in my older projects. The overall process is much simpler. Once we have the K, making the various Gs and maybe the F should be comparatively simple.

The sidebar description is the most correct.
Sorry about the confusion. I'm still unable to edit the description, getting the limit reached error. I guess I'll just honor the bigger rewards in every case, and deliver the maximum or the combination of any two tiers with errors in descriptions.

We can extend the map to the entire globe, but manually adding detail will be extremely hard to do.
We can have all of England done for the map in virtually no time, but it'll be a general coastline filled with vague generic field.
It really makes no sense to spend time making British airfields if you only have AI bombers; a flyable B-17 will obviously need to have a nice-looking airbase to take off from and return to.

The way I understand EDGE - and I have to mention that there is a chance that I can be wrong here - is that we can take an existing map and just drag out the outer edges and extend it by any number of kilometers.
Creating generic terrain with a vague coastline and some elevation is not a huge task. Making it look good is. Making it historically accurate, i.e. recreating road networks, landmarks, etc, is a huge huge effort.
We could take our existing Normandy and tack on England and Paris and Ruhr and Berlin. Theoretically. It's just it'll either take many man-years to polish every square mile, or we'll end up with some empty generic filler across vast areas.
And THANK YOU to all the backers once again.
We'll have a new cool video released on Monday morning.
I'll be around until then to answer questions, so keep them coming!"
