Do you buy a new plane when you crash?

Recommended Posts

Ive crashed the PMDG 747 in the past so deleted my install and paid for a new one. I know some people may find that silly but if there is no incentive to not fail whats the point lol. And i suppose it gives devs more money :P

Everytime you get killed in BF do you buy a new game? Where is the Captain Captain Jean-Luc Picard slapping his forehead picture?

But BF is an arcade game not a realistic simulation lol.

It's best not to tell anyone, except your insurance company, they'll be really surprised. Who knows, with some luck and new office staff, perhaps they'll send you some money for repairs.

 

:lol:

This is a joke right?

 

I *think* (and this is just a hunch) that it may have gone over a few people's heads. And then crashed and burned the other side  :P

Well, at least you're paying about 250 million less than if it was a real 744  :lol:

Probably, but in that case, the problem with his satire is that it's all too believable. :P    We live in a world where people learn the Klingon language or have a collection of 85,000 strings of Christmas lights, so you never know if somebody is just yanking your chain, or if they are serious.

Last time I crashed a GA plane in the sim with one PAX on board I somehow managed to persuade someone to give birth to a new earthling 9 months later.   :blush:

 

And since the plane was freeware I had to re-download it, of course.   B)

Glad to hear it was a joke! Otherwise I would suggest spending the cash on therapy :)

 

I think spending large amounts of cash on high end hardware is fine if you have the money. Try real world flying as a hobby, or even restoring cars and you will see that our hobby is very cheap.

 

Repurchasing aircraft because you crashed it in a simulator.. Time to change the medication!

I crashed my payware planes so many times, the developers would sure build a statue in my honour. :lol:

I had a conversation with Snave once on the Aerosoft forum where he argued for exactly what you were saying. His contention was that when you damaged a plane, it would be put out of service for the same period a real plane repair would take, and that if you destroyed the airplane it would be automatically deleted from your library.

 

The real point was he was upset at people not taking simulation "seriously" enough and doing silly things like loops and flying under bridges, and that if anyone wanted to simulate aerial combat, the plane should be deleted if shot down.

 

It was a...... lively conversation.  :lol:

 

I would not want to be a mod on the Forum of any company that tried putting a policy like that into practice........

Dont give the developers any ideas.....can you imagine after a bad landing they charge you to "fix" the aircraft....and a total write off you have to buy a new one.
