A good read / interview with a Xplane addon developer

Recommended Posts

Just found this at FlightSim.com, hope it's ok to post here. It's a good read / interview with one of Xplanes fine (didn't know what to use here Goran, hope "fine" is ok) aircraft addon developers. Keep them coming Goran.

I read it when first posted.

 

Thought to myself, "Maybe Goran isn't so bad after all?"

 

Came back to catch up on what's happening in X-Plane.

 

Thought to myself, "Maybe Goran's wife supplied the answers?"

 

:lol:

Very nice interview , clear and positive.

 

Still trying to see the humor in meshman`s post........................till now no luck.

Nevertheless there is a positive side-effect in meshman`s reaction , I am learning a lot about the man behind meshman.

An interesting read, and it shows how dedicated he is to the platform, and to quality output.

Go Goran! :)

Certainly an interesting read.

 

Goran and Tom are at the TOP of my list, specially because they participate here at the forum, and, although there are certainly other excellent/brillinat 3pds (JRollon, etc...), it's different to actually be able to exchange ideas and ask questions directly to those who design your preferred add-ons (mine, at least...).

 

Goran is also, in the background, either thorugh PMs or even Email, allways helpful and ready to do is best to solve our problem, even with many aspects not directly related to the products developed by LES!

Apart from reply #3, I was pleasantly surprised to see these comments.

Many thanks, Gentlemen!

I too am perplexed and cannot find the humor, Leen. Uncalled for and out of line is probably the better way to put it.

 

Nice interview, Goran. As someone who works with you I am proud to say so and look forward to the many more creations you're working to churn out for the community.

 

Cheers!

He's naturally grumpy (his own words), so what else can we expect from someone like that. Probably didn't have any more mesh work to do.

Great interview! Im very much looking forward to the Saab. The DC3 is just to die for, so I'm sure this one will be too. Im also glad X-aviation is behind it. Their customer service has been nothing short of Excellent!

Couldn't come from a better person. Goran has already helped me on a little experiment I was doing with the XP C172. Very knowledgable and always willing to help out. Kudos to Gonads, I mean, Goran! Sorry brother couldn't resist! hahaha

I understood meshman's humor. Goran is obviously a really cool guy, but when a person is arguing it doesn't portray him in his best light.

 

Where can I find more information on the DC-3? The org probably wouldn't be the best place for me to look.

Enjoyed reading that interview, very interesting!

 

Your aircraft look absolutely stunning and I think the Saab might be the second commercial aircraft add-on for X-Plane that I will buy (the BK117 being the first)!

 

Keep going strong, it´s uphill work for the most part ^_^ .

but he argues a lot and often contradicts himself in those arguments.... some of you see it but choose to ignore it.

Thanks, Jan. That 737 will definitely be 1 of a few add ons I will also buy.

Been waiting for that one!

Is this one already 64-bit compliant?

 

Was one of my featured buys, but I bought the dc-3 and the Sundowner, and two Carenado twins first...

I don't have the BK117 but from what I've read in the support forum it's not yet fully v10 compliant never mind 64-bit.

I sure it'll be updated at some point though. Got my eye on it too. ;)

I could be interested in the DC3 soon. I see that the developer of gizmo is working on other platforms including linux which will be good news for the growing number of linux users in Xplane.

Don't disagree, most of us do from time to time, human nature.

 

X-Plane is like a ball moving on a pool table, you sometimes don't know where it's going, and that can lead to some pretty heated discussions, and be very frustrating.

 

It's fine to disagree, and as Mountain Man put it the other day (not exact, didn't look it up) "It's not what you say, it's how you say it". Were not all perfect, some need to be cut a little more slack than others.

 

What is said here in debate should in no way diminish the value of the contributions and effort that Goran makes to this community. You / we / someone, may not like what he or anyone has to say from time to time, it doesn't mean they don't care, don't want to help, perhaps have a totally different view than our own, that's fair enough, we need to learn to deal with it.

 

I quite often don't see eye to eye with Goran's views, and a lot of others around here, doesn't mean I can't still value / honour his / their contributions.

 

This interview, and it's posting here, is to honour his contributions to the community, gives us a "view" of him, can't we all put our petty feelings aside and do that, can't we?

Edit: I will say no more on this, just had to get it off the chest, it was bugging me.

It still hurts that you didn't make your DC-3 compatible with Linux. :(

 

Or you could read post #21. :)

Hehe I have to respond to this, it all depends on who the player is. Here is Ronnie O'sullivan at his best. Snooker, but same difference.
