Aerosoft Mega Aiport Updates - Storm Brewing

Recommended Posts

I don't think anyone would argue that Aerosoft has absolutely dragged its heels in adapting its add-ons for the various iterations of P3D, compared with any other major developer.

Now they drop this:
http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/126204-mega-airports-for-prepar3d-v4/&

Suggest you all read it.

My view, FWIW, is that it would matter less that they were charging for these updates if they had done a better job of updating airports in the past. As such they've left themselves wide open to criticism, probably incorrect, that they've delayed releases so they can create a "Professional" version and bring in some revenue, when all anyone wants, in the initial instance, is a straight port to the latest P3D version.

As someone says in the above thread, if a small developer like UK2000 can sort porting out quickly and without charge, why can't Aerosoft?

I will pay for, and very much look forward to, the updates, but I am frustrated that Aerosoft can't move faster on these matters, always remembering that ported add-ons to the latest P3D iteration are the only way of guaranteeing that those products have a future.

Mathijs has now closed the above thread, so I thought we could carry it on here.

And the point of this thread? 

I fear this will turn into a complete developer bashing - warranted or not! It's already given in the tone of the OP. If it can be kept clean without baseless and unjustified accusations, I guess it could be interesting - to a certain degree... 

But to be honest I don't think we'll end there... Moderators, please keep a close eye here! I would really hate to have a flame-war starting, with people starting to recklessly bashing a developers business decision. A decision, which they're completely entitled to make!

There's already another thread, which have been closed at the Aerosoft's own forums - for very good reasons! 

Anyway - I've said my piece... let's see how it goes?! I fear this thread will be locked quite soon...

Yep... not upset at all.  New platform, more work for developers, fully understand.  I was actually pleasantly surprise how many developers did not charge for the upgrade.

Same here, not upset at all. Apparently some work has been done for the P3DV4 version, and for the price less than a package of cigarettes ? Why discuss at all ?

If the 5 or 6 Euro helps in keeping developers developing Addons, then I'm glad to pay it.

If a developer like FS2Crew takes the full price from existing customers of the P3DV3 version, that would be worth to discuss...
