Who's Mike Stone

Recommended Posts

I'm probably going to sound like an idiot who doesn't know anything about anything in the add-on aircraft world, but who's is this Mike Stone? Sorry Mike if I offended you. I keep hearing about him in post, asking him to make planes. Is he like the Dolli Lama(spelled wrong) of downloadable aircraft? Thanks to anyone who is not amazed at my stupidity enough to clue me in.

Well, I wouldn't go as far as to call him a Dali Llhama, or however you spell that. One of the masters at doing some beautiful aircraft design for FS2002, yes.A LOT of people here contribute a great deal to this addiction, I mean hobby. Stick around, you'll see.Oh Mike Stone, high Lord of the realm of FS Aircraft design, take not your wrath out upon this humble peasant who grovels and kowtows at your most honorable feet, lest thy most honorable irritation lead thine patience to grow thin and pack up thine toys and go home. But, if it pleases you your high worship, this lowly servant meekly asks upon your lofty thoughts what next shall flow from thine devine drawing board?Cheers!Heather "Bad Weather"When it absolutely, positively, has to be there overnight, I'll get it there the next day; but when you're #2, you try harder. ;)http://ftp.avsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3d18e8077527c2cb.jpg

I don't know. He, or someone using his name, joined Meridian - twice - but was so busy designing planes that he never had time to fly. Come to think of it, we have SEVERAL people with that exact same "problem"! :-lolMike "The Machine Stone", just keeps cranking out new models. :)

Hey Bob,Yeah, the pilot roster of Meridian reads like a premier list of flightsim designers! :)Maybe you should setup a flight hour equity formula for the pilot/designers (or is that designer/pilot? :)) on the roster.For every plane that is painted= +100 hoursFor every plane that is designed from scratch= +1000 hours!You could figure out a scale for every design discipline, and encourage them to design even MORE than they do now!Of course this could easily be converted into a monetary scale

I know, I know. Every now and then, after an exausting session squinting at a 3d model and moving vertices around, my eyes go blurry and I say to myself..."That's it, I'm gonna take a break from designing and do some flying for a change". Then I join a VA and download a couple of aircraft, which promptly give me some new design ideas.....well, you can see where this is headed. I pop open GMAX and off I go again. Is there an ADA (Aircraft Designer's Anonymous)?Mike Stone
