FIVE-BY-FIVE

It kept me away from XPX so I returned it

Recommended Posts

The Coolsky DC-9 for FSX was the most amazing payware I have ever bought, I added the McPhat Liveries for Exterior and VC plus I also bought the TSS Sound Pack.  It was the most amazing flightsim experience and I decided to return it to Flight1 until later this year when I will rebuy it after I see XPX mature alittle past 10.30  It was keeping me away from XP10 and the forums.  I'm back on xp10 and happily flying my Peter's Aircraft and some other stuff :lol:  :drinks:   See you again in a few months my little DC-9 :(  :Love:  My investment in FSX/P3D is around $5000-7000 and $500-1000 for xp10, I did not want to leave or stop XP10 so I got a refund at Flight1.....yes the DC-9 is that gooooood! :good:

Two ways to look at this. Your enthusiasm may have sold additional DC-9's.

 

Yet returning the product, after some happy summing hours, can also start a wave of .......enjoy now, and save some money. I don't think that helps Flight 1

But...... you can be enthusiastic on the FSX forum too! And help Flight1 and Coolsky stay in business at the same time. Wouldn't that be wonderful!!! :)

I posted there also in an old DC-9 post, didn't want to start a new one, but I will soon.  Have you tried the DC-9?

the problem was that this DC-9 was making me not want to fly XPX and DCS, hell it even kept me away from Farm Simulator 2013 :lol:   Nothing keeps me away from that but Coolsky did :P   it was simply amazing,  It was made for beginners or professionals, beautiful payware package.

I sim for the enjoyment.  Seems a bit odd to return a product you're enjoying to "pay attention to" one you can always pick up later.  But that's your prerogative.

 

I also enjoy the OP DC-9, btw.  It is pretty!

I'm weird, what can I say:) once I wanted to return a car because I didn't like the colour car was a gift from my dad.

Well, it hurts Flight 1 and Coolsky.

it hurt my xp10, DCS, and more :lol:   I will buy it later on...I want to give xp10 a chance and see what happens in 10.30, 10.40, etc. 

Well, it hurts Flight 1 and Coolsky.

they will get my $50 again plus I still have the other addons I bought for the DC9.  (McPhat and TSS)

Oooh, that's a morally 'grey' decision to say the least. I like your enthusiasm Five, your posts were a small part of the reason I came to XP, but asking for a refund because you can't balance your simming is a poor reason to deprive a developer of funds, especially when you yourself say it gave you a lot of pleasure.

 

Sorry, gonna have to give you a big boooooo on this.

I'm with Five on this one.

 

I also have multiple computing interests. I only use XP10 in flight simming but I really like to go adventuring in the old MUDs. Also get a lot from doing fun programming (helps keep the grey matter working).

 

The upshot is that you have a need to budget your time, so something has to go. In Fives's case she chose the DC9. Simple.

I think Coolsky and Flight1 can survive without my $50 :lol:  Like I said earlier, I had to get the refund or xp10 and DCS would have ended up in the recycle bin.  I will re-buy later on.

So put them in the recycle bin. If we all start expecting refunds because software we've bought temporarily doesn't fit our lifestyle or simming tastes, developers will go out of business pretty quickly.

That must be one of the strangest things I've read here so far... ;-)

I think some should give Five a break. She has said she has spent up to $7000 on FSX products (and probably a lot of Flight 1 stuff) and up to a $1000 on X-plane. That's more than most people. It's thanks to simmers like her that we have third party developers.

 

With so many pirates around, I don't we should judge someone for returning a product who is well within their rights to do so. Playing the card of not supporting developer's is a little OTT for someone who has invested so much money in the hobby and is probably responsible for increasing the sales of many add-ons through here shared enthusiasm and promotion.

Well, did the same twice. Flight1's store is great in allowing for it.

 

I would gladly return all of my P3D, FSX stuff. It hearts me to think about the things I just used for a couple of weeks before uninstalling them.

 

That's why I left flight-simulation altogether around 2007. I was spending way to much time on it... and getting way to much disappointment rather than satisfaction out of it...

 

I am the kind of simmer ( flight simulation are the only type of games I play in the PC ) who is not able to have more than one sim at a time. If I sometimes divert to other platforms, it is only because I am trying to find there what I couldn't find on others.  The case with X-Plane10 was a bit different and more of stubborness :-)  I was mad at LR for not listening to my requests, and erased it from my PC. Then, as you know, I re-visited FSX then P3D and even DCS.

 

DCS is a very special case of a sim where the flight dynamics are great, systems modelling too. The only problem is the focus of the simulation in DCS World. I hate war systems. They're too complex for me, and I am using a simulator that is designed basically to replicate, with high accuracy, those sophisticated modern air war systems. I couldn't care less about it. So, I found myself starting DCS just to fly around for a while in the p51d, the uh-1h, trying to enjoy the excellent flight dynamics.

 

But... I think I could summarize my feelings in the following sentence:

 

"One is too old / frozen, the other too complex, the one just good or too good..." to describe why I came back to X-Plane10.

 

Should I be able to get a refund for all I spent in the other sims, and invest even more in X-Plane10... I would ...
