Ok sorry for you guys shutting down.I do hope that whatever reason caused the demise does not stop the release at some point of the A340 panel and most especially the MU-2. It would be a shame to let those sit unused on someones hard drive and not be released.Thanks for the stuff you have given us already.

Sad news :'( ...I'm curious what it was that forced you to close down, though...However, I bet it was continuing bashing, false copyright violation claims and the like. Sheesh...this world is really getting worse by the day...

It's such a shame about the MU-2. Maybe a forum would have stopped people sending emails and closing the group? Anyway it doesn't really matter now does it.

Or maybe it wouldn't...IIRC, one plane design group (wasn't it EFG?) closed down partly because of hostile comments on the Avsim forums.Truly sad to lose a talented group such as SB (or EFG, for that matter) only because some whiney pr1cks or jealous competitors cannot keep themselves under control. In the latter case it would be another example of how defamatory comments and instigation can shoot honest people down for good...*sigh*The same has happened over at train-sim.com, so I guess it is not limited to just one game...But let me just say one thing - I for one will treasure SB's Airbuses for as long as I will continue to play FS. Best big jetliners there ever were - period.Shame that we now probably won't ever see the MU-2, and neither the A342 and 343 Al once talked about :-( x( :'( ...

Al,what is it that could go so terribly wrong to force you to close down your business? Sorry for asking yet again, but I just don't get it...I'm not asking for every single detail if the reason should be a personal matter, of course.

Hi Al,It is sad to hear that the Simubuild website had to close down...... the fleshy tabernacle has died but the spirit lives forever. I am surprised how talent, dedication and enthusiasm could get bogged down by some eeny-weeny half-penny mischief mongers. I am sure freeware designers have nothing against each other - through innovation, healthy competition and goodwill, they will provide the entire flightsimming community with the best addons for years to come, I am sure. It is the funny third-party troublemakers who I feel are really in the game. Remember the story of the old jackal who was too weak to hunt anymore? He set two goats fighting against each other so that he could eat them when they died fighting each other. So Al, I believe it is just nothing to worry about. But NEVER EVER get bogged down by intimidating comments - bullies are infact people with low self-esteem (a fact which I learnt during my undergraduate years in medical school!!!) and they deserve your compassion. Here is a poem (author: unknown) which is hung on the entrance of our Medical College library. Hope it spruces up your spirit!!You must have those skillful tacticsto place the winning move,It can come through perseverance and practiceI am sure it won't be hard to prove,Your programming must be brilliantand the way you think should be cool,Your universe must have solutions,which others have not learnt at school,Things sometimes may go wrong,(it is natural) and they sometimes will,Just keep going strong,till you reach the top of the hill,When your plans have been beaten to dust,and others around don't care a bitSmile for a while and take rest,but NEVER EVER DARE TO QUIT.I wish you all successin whatever you set out to doMay you have great visionsand the courage to see them through.ALL THE BEST!!!!Warm regards,Dr. Jinesh ThomasResident in Internal MedicineGauhati Medical CollegeINDIA.

Man, that sucks. :( I just got back from a week being out of town & the first thing I see is this. Well, you guys made an excellent aircraft, & I thank you for it. I'm sad to see such a promising group dissolve. :'(

Mr. Murray,In case you havent realised, the files are no longer available, and I would appreciate it if you remove the links. The files are being deleted currently and this is not possible because now there are people accessing the sites dowloading files from your direct links.Al Lynch Jr. - Member FSWorldonline.comhttp://www.fsworldonline.com/~imgsrv/MySignature1.jpg

my guess: money. is that what could split apart a group of people creating such an impressive airbus?possibly.we saw dreamfleet pull their a340 project shortly after the release of the simubuild plane. i think that had to do with them realizing noone would buy their plane with such EXCELLENT freeware out there. it is possible that some people approached simubuild members about the potential income on such projects and now they are split between those who want to make money and freeware ppl.just a rough guess but if ppl start splitting out of nowhere theres almost always money involved.and something as "ill" as the FS scene, the only game addon scene that actually evolved payware on a huge schale, the guess of money being a reason for the death of a group is not far fetched

And that kind of comment is exactly WHY groups shut down...Some people never learn, it seems.If that were the reason, I wonder why POSKY didn't close down in 2000/2001.PSS released a 747 and 777, Wilco a 767. That's all POSKY had until the A330 was released and in your reasoning they should have gotten huge offers of money to pull the plug and maybe join those teams...

groups shut down because some ppl suspect monetary reasons?you dont make sense. there is no other game that so much revolves around cash in the add on market like FS. 99% of addons for other games are freeware, hell it took them years and tens of millions of downloaded counterstrikes to make a payable cd version yet you can still download it for free.no game scene and community has such a large amount of greedy people and people who try to make money with their hobby. you are living in disney world if you dont think that in 90+% of FS group related problems money is a major issue.
