I think they already started excuses why it will be bugged and hard on fps ;)

 

To be honest this kind of statement is not even funny considering pmdg complexity level.

It looks as if they were getting a bit of heat - the PMDG comment has now been removed from their F/Book post.

Competition is always good.

 

users will then judge whenever what they stated was true or not.

But sure, they could have avoided mentioning PMDG just like that. Good they removed it now.

Sounds like it was an attempt at making a joke that went badly, perhaps because English is not the first language of whoever wrote it. I saw some people on Facebook who seemed to think that NLS was making a serious criticism of PMDG products, something that developers of FS aircraft who have knowledge of PMDG and the community in general wouldn't do as they know what goes in to making them and how good the final products are. At the same time, some people need to suppress their need to defend PMDG any time they're being anything but praised.

I don't think was a joke. I'm not a ######.. so I really hope they can do better than PMDG.

Have high hopes for NLS and this Airbus. This project has been dragging on for a while though. I'm in a wait-and-see (for something substantive) mode. Not impressed by boastful claims, and am waiting for them to walk the walk.

I'm just happy to hear that the project is still going. Can't wait to fly that monster!

 

I agree.. and the QW 787 :)

which part made you think it wasn't a joke? does the winking smiley face mean 'deadly serious' in some other part of the world?

 

at least some of their facebookers understood the comment , but it's not surprising that a lot of simmers are humorless old men with nothing better to do than try to find drama where there is none

 

cheers

Sure it was a joke, it was so "funny" they had to remove it. And yeah, their facebookers understood.. they just post the wrong comments about the NLS post aswell. And watch your words..

so you really believe that they added the smiley face because they were being serious??? 

 

i don't think i really need to explain internet 101 to folks but that emoticon is kind of a big clue that people are being facetious. i think mainly they underestimated how a sarcastic comment might be misinterpreted..

 

Of COURSE they singled out PMDG because they are the undisputed king of complex airliners right now, everybody already knows that. they are suggesting that they are aiming for at least that level of quality which can only be a good thing for us old man simmers. 

 

i think they removed it because too many people didn't get it and it caused drama, just like you are seeing in this thread here what with advising me to watch my mouth and so forth, for no reason other than that you didn't understand a joke (a joke i didn't even make). it's really quite puzzling but i would suggest you relax and have a beer or somethin' man :)   if you're ever in my neck of the woods up in norcal i'll buy the first couple rounds!  have a good one    :smile:

 

cheers,

I have lumped this project with all the other airbus projects and the Level-D 757. Basically, I have adopted a simple mantra: "I believe it when I see it!"  :Talking Ear Off:

Yes, I think some people need to chill out a bit. The emoticon clearly indicates that this was a joke. Having said that, the title of this thread does not include that emoticon, so it is slightly misleading.

Not just like a PMDG project is complimentary. But your title here changed that to sound like they were bashing PMDG

 

 

Exactly my point.

Going to have to politely disagree here--are NLS native English speakers? If they'd said "complex, just not like PMDG" ("just" before the "not") that would have been complimentary to PMDG and self-deprecating. But saying "not just like PMDG" ("not" before the "just") completely changes the meaning to say it will be much more complex than PMDG. "Bashing," as you say.

 

So either they're being deliberately provocative (smiley or not) or this is a language barrier issue.

I think this is getting quite silly and out of proportion. I shouldn't matter what others said unless they are being outright derogatory. In this case it looks to be a casual joke and I feel yet again people in this hobby are getting far to serious and far to precious about PMDG. I love their products but they are not living gods and nobody should be jumping at anyone else's throat for such a small thing said.

They are saying not just PMDG can create fully realistic addons. That is complimentary not negative towards PMDG. If they want to place the bar so high for their addon to be judged along PMDG then bring it on! We need more realistic aircraft.
