Yes, well done russianspd.


Over the past 16 months we have posted over 280 SimForum Announcements, most of which have been announcing new beta and new release versions of the software with enhanced or new features. At a guess that equates to over 250 new beta and release versions in 16 months !

Not sure I understand. The full list of 286 Announcements can be found on our SimForums.


If you are wondering about historic weather data then please read my reply in the Coming Soon topic. Our data comes from NOAA hence the 24 hour limit, soon to be increased to 36 hours.
