I know BIS is working on 1.03, and the people here that witnessed the games bugs are surely thankful of that. But outside of the AI issues, and MP issues lies that more important issues that should be resolved first. Let me say I am one of the lucky few that are able to play the game with decent framerates. But I have many friends that aren't as lucky. I am not here to post a rant or give anyone grief. It is merely a suggestion from someone that enjoys the game and want to see it succeed. I just think the issues at hand need to be prioritized.
1. The game has issues with Intel i7 Hyperthreading
2. There is an memory issue with Nvidia video cards.
3. ATI 4000 series card owners and the known graphical/texture issues
4. Issue with SLI/CF having to implement a workaround in order to uses these technologies, and the poor performance when they are used.
5 Receiving screen bug that evidently affects many people that visit our forums.
There are many bugs that are to be expected with any release of a game, I am aware of that. It is impossible to test the game in a way that every type of hardware is ensured to be compatible or optimal for the game.
After months of beta testing, and all of the feedback in the forums there should be a HUGE effort to fix the issues that keep people from playing the game AT ALL. Issues like fixing AI, or adjusting the visibility when flying should be issues that come in as a distant second to the issues that are keeping people who have bought and paid for a game that they are unable to play.
In closing, while I am sure you are working feverishly trying to work as many fixes as you can into 1.03, maybe it would be a good idea to fix the issues mentioned above that are keeping all these people from enjoying any part of the game at all.
