Is Captain Sim gone??

Recommended Posts

Last night, (about 2AM EST) I was reading CS's forum when a message thread popped up titled "Closed for Business" don't know who posted it. The very next screen went blank, and it still that way!!

You gotta be kidding. The site is definitely down. It can't be, can it?

I can confirm that here as well...Perhaps they have folded? Perhaps they decided to do a runner... I also feel for all those waiting on the additional "blocks" of the 757 project...Why do I have this gut feeling that the project will never really come to fruition? Just a load of hot air again? I agree: Wilco/FeelThere and PSS, CS was added to that list shortly after their 757 was released...Andrew

Don't tease me like that. :-hahTheir website is not down, it's refusing requests to connect. Could be they have pulled the plug, or could be a hacker's work.But after spending a good solid day this week hacking the 707 panel to work to what I consider an acceptable level, they're on my s^%& list again right now anyway.Bob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VSantiago de Chile

Looks like the website has been hacked or other server problems. I would seriously doubt that they've folded. They would continue the sales and just cease the support, like so many others before.Pat

Hi"They would continue the sales and just cease the support"So nothing has changed.;)Now I`m sad but in a way that`s good news as opposed to them morphing into a new group that can continue their stellar performance.Pete

Their physical server is still up, but the html server isn't, so it could be any number of reasons. Their history is one of utter disorganization in all aspects of their operation; this is just another example of how to screw up a business, and is something no modern - I hate to say "western" business management would tolerate.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/166364.jpg

If they did close, good riddance. Frankly I'm tired of people making threads about how they bought CS's crappy products and complain about it on this forum. Next up: Ariane. I can only dream though.

As I have a son who has spent much time with the U.S. Airforce in C-130's....I tend to have an interest in this aircraft!Has anyone built a better one? I certainly haven't seen one!The exterior graphics of this plane, and VC are really quite good IMO. Since I'm not to worried about their airliners and systems, as some appear to be, I don't have a grudge. Besides, my C-130 was on sale for a great price. In fact, I think I got a heck of a lot for what it cost.L.Adamson

No one has built (what was supposed to be) a better 707, either...and it stinks! Yes the eye-candy is good, but the systems modelling and overall "bugs" are beyond belief...and any REASONABLE expectations of payware customers...unless patches are regularly made (which hasn't happened). I realize you aren't as concerned with these types of issues...and your C-130 may not have them...but they are part and parcel of even a mediocre payware addon. The CS 707 can't see "mediocre" because of how far below that it is. Their belief seems to be if we ignore these 707 buyers in favor of our newer customers, they will go away. Well "go away" is the operative phrase here, for me! I wanted that C-130, but there was NO WAY I was going to throw another dime at CS until the 707 was working in a more reasonable manner. At this point I no longer care if they live or die (and deep down...I hope they are toast!). I have had issues with other payware makers...some which took way too long to come to a conclusion...and these have always given me pause before buying from them again. But I have never had dealings with one as bad as CS. CS has never "given me pause"...I knew I would never buy anything from them again. But I kept hoping they would fix the 707. Yeah, RIGHT! I'm sorry if you lose the support of CS for your C-130 (if they are truly gone)...but you don't sound like you need any? ;-) Vic

Did you see any sign of a new "update" for the 707, at the site, Mike? LOL! I don't think it's ever going to be fixed...especially after the "we never PROMISED we would do anything about the 707" post I saw at the CS forums. "Version 1.2" = "promises" = "707 Bug Reports"...it's all the same but now we want to play semantics? LOL! Whatever.

>What a waste of time this topic is... :-lol The only reason I posted it was right before the screen went blank, I noticed a post called "Closed for Business". It turns out it was posted by a user who did repaints which has decided to close up shop. Just a coincidence of circumstances I guess. I would have just assumed they were down for maintenance otherwise. Sorry for the scare everyone!
