Now, let’s talk shortcuts.

What is a combat simulator shortcut?

A shortcut in any computer activity, app, or game, is a simpler way to do something. That is the basic explanation for all shortcuts. When talking about a combat flight simulator, players are basically asking if there is an easier way to fly an aircraft, or a shortcut in carrying out an attack . . . that sort of thing.

Does Aces High have combat simulator shortcuts?

With that as a definition, we answer the next question, which is does our game, Aces High, have shortcuts related to the playing of the game, and our answer is no.

We do have shortcuts when it comes to making screenshots, and a few other shortcuts which are directly related to the technical aspects of the game, but no shortcuts which give a player an advantage while playing the game.

And why is that? Because we believe combat should be determined according to the skill of the victor, and not some trick which may, or may not, be known by all competitors. When we first designed our game, this question did come up, and there was a serious discussion about it. But, in the end, our desire to make Aces High a competitive game based on playing skill overruled the need for shortcuts.

The real way to improve is . . .

The bottom line is this: if you want an advantage while playing Aces High, the only true way to do that is to practice and improve your game.
