A Word from the Editor

   The Raptor saw a great comeback with the first re-issue since I took over as Editor, but you guys are letting me down as far as getting me input. I know that there isn't much to go on, therefore I'm going to open it up a little and allow articles, columns, stories, and rants that have little to nothing to do with Area00, but it should be within reason. But, if I do get information in regards to Area00, that has top priority. I don't want to see The Raptor die off as it has before, and with your help, we can keep it alive.    Thank you,

   Saber, editor for The Raptor

   Area00's financial status is better thanks to all of your honorable supports. Thank you very much. Area00 will be revised totally and have a new combat and mission system. Also I'll program a new wing system to make wing wars available. We had a hard time recently thanks to cheaters and bugs. I'll do my best to make new life to Area00. Personally, I'm considering leaving my job because my company has a very bad vision and no profit from software I made. I'll quit the company if the status doesn't get better and work for Area00 full time.

   Thank you very much,

   Tony, Founder and Creator

Up and Coming

   Sorry for delaying of new reconnaissance/electric warfare system.
No new update plan now.

   The Raptor will be changing into a monthly newsletter rather than a bi-monthly. This will give Tony and myself more time to accumulate ideas and context to report on. Please continue to show your support by sending articles, stories, columns, and rants to:

   "Don't get shot down." By MR Kilroy

   "For the Newbies- as soon as you get the money you better buy a bomber and get you rank built up so you can get your sense up to 30. You aren't going to have a real good chance in dog fighting the big boys until you get it maxed out." By getsome122

   "Once you first start out. Never stop bombing till you 1) run out of enemies or 2) don't have any more money. Even if its just residences you really need the exp at that point." By: Scotty4Life
