Oh dear !

They don't do anything for FS2004 so less FS2004 users likely registered there to vote. Of course FS2004 numbers are down compared to other sims but I think there are quite a few more than polls like this demonstrate.

If FS9 is to paid any development attention, it's simple.

  • Buy the stuff they make us
  • Go to the polls when asked.

The above release only happened because the FS9 community makes itself visible.

 

Yep agreed. I recently bought  EDDF from them.  I have invested too much time and money in FS9 to consider changing.

Good point - but what if I don't need or want a particular product they produce?  Being retired and living on only my pension means that I cannot buy just to support a developer however desireable that might be for our hobby.

I think the point he was making is that if you don't (or can't) buy a newly released FS9 product, you cannot later complain that none is being produced.

Ah, right!

 

I've sometimes regretted that something I would like has not been available for FS2004 but I don't ever recall having complained about the paucity of products.

 

When I looked at Aerosoft's poll results earlier less than 3% were FS2004 users and Aerosoft has announced that they won't be releasing anything more for us.  We have to face the fact that we are becoming a smaller and smaller "band of brothers".  Who, starting out in our hobby today, is going to consider buying FS2004?  I think a poll on that would result in zero!

 

Despite all of this, though, I wouldn't be parted from my FS2004 - not at any price!

Oh dear !

This post was for those who were perhaps interested, so feel free to ignore it.

 

If Aerosoft doesn't release add-ons for FS2004 anymore, other developers still do; and I regularly buy from them - if their products are good.

Not sure what point you are trying to make with that post ?

 

I am a strong supporter of FS9 and am regularly contributing on many forums including this one. I have recently purchased the new version of EDDF, and have bought about six addon airports in the last 12 months from different vendors.

 

I am very interested in the results of Aerosofts poll which was the reason I replied. Perhaps you did not understand my initial reply so I shall translate:

 

"2.59% is not a number that will encourage any developer to put resources into FS9, unless it can be done at virtually no extra cost to them".

 

That means "Oh dear" in my book !

Me too. Plus I really don'y want to start over installing all my scenery and converting my FS9 AI textures and plans to FSX. That would take weeks!

Peter, it seems that I misunderstood you, indeed. I read your post thinking that the topic was marginal and not interesting for you. Thanks for your clarification, and I apologize.

 

Actually, knowing that the poll is not representative, I nevertheless watch it with interest, as long as there grows no "my sim is better than yours" or Bashing-FS2004 discussion. It would be interesting to have the same poll by Drzewiecki Design or TropicalSim.
