Special thanks to Peter Dowson

Recommended Posts

There are many people who add tremendous value to this great hobby (obsession :-) ) of ours and right up there amongst the best of them IMHO is Peter Dowson.Thanks Peter for pushing the boundries of FS2002 through FSUIPC and the many other excellent utilities you have written.For something for which you don't charge, it's value in FlightSim terms is priceless!

Yes, thankyou! FSUIPC has evolved to cope with everything that MS and other developers have thrown at it. Calmly and quietly without fanfare and without the adulation that accompanies the next 'must-have' plane. An unsung hero of Flight Sim!

Indeed!Without Peter's contributions, none of the external add-ons you see out there would be possible. He has certainly pushed the boundaries and continues to do so all the time, as well as setting an excellent example for other developers to follow.....

I think back to what life was like without Fsuipc. WOW that seems like a long time ago, have I been at this that long :) I wish all the best to Peter!

I remember when I first downloaded FSUIPC and could not yet figure out what I needed it for. I think the first thing I used it for was Taxi wind corrections so I could do crosswind touch and go's and not blow off the side of the runway on deck. Once I got that figured out I have slowly added more stuff until I cannot imagine flying without it. When FS2004 comes out most of my whole cockpit will be unusable until FSUIPC gets released for the new version. Thank You Pete for adding so much, to so many, for so little in return. You are definately an FS Hero in my book.Ken

"When FS2002 comes out most of my whole cockpit will be unusable until FSUIPC gets released for the new version "The best definition for the FSUIPC importance. For the Gentleman that quietly allow all of us enjoy the best addons and minimize FS problems.Thank you Pete and a Merry ChristmasJos
