I wasn't expecting that! When I read the title, my first thought was that he was moving to P3D. 🙂 I think such a big news deserves to be in the main XP forum.

He's been one of the most important contributor to the XP community, and he played a part in the success that XP is enjoying today. Thank you Andras, and good luck for your life!

Wow! What a message!

I think we will find out what this means only in a couple of months or even years. Thank you very much, Andreas, for all that you did for our hobby!

All the best for the future!

P.S. I think that if all of us who enjoy your work would donate (only) 10 Euro or Dollars (well worth 50 or more) you could enjoy a drink or two 😏.

Alpilot and Tonywob absolutely define just how hi-fidelity freeware can be, when there are people prepared to commit to staggering amounts of work, given freely to their community.

I wish Andras the very best for the future, and a huge THANKS!

I've moved this to the main forum.

This is very sad news but after spending so much time developing lately I can understand completely the need to just step away. I hope Andras will still chime in now and then, and I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting to thank him for all the work he's done over the years.

Andras, just a big THANK YOU! for your invaluable contribution. Flightsimming since 1984 (subLOGIC's time) I tried all versions of X-Plane (and always expected the next one to become the big thing). Now switched from P3D to  XP, and I'd probably never changed without your addons. Really I love it more than my complete ORBX portfolio and will stay with it. My best wishes for all your (maybe less PC-bound) years to come .

Andras, a big "Vielen Dank!" for all those countless hours spent on improving our beloved simulator. I enjoyed every new iteration of your mesh and it also helped my efforts of scenery development tremendously, as usually those meshes showed streets at a much higher fidelity and accuracy than the default global scenery.

I can understand your step - I have taken similiar ones in my past, I still remember me going "cold turkey" on EVE online when my first child was born...

Anyway, good luck for the future and stick around!

Cheers, Jan

I read his goodbye earlier and didn't have the heart to spread the news.

Although I fully understand and respect his choice, I can't help but thinking this is sad news for the community.
His contribution to X-Plane has been enormous and will count for the years to come. I'm into geographic software myself, and his website has been an amazing resource.

Andras's work mainly on free software is also the main reason we have a Linux version of X-Plane.

Andras, Thanks a lot for everything you've done. For the inspiration. For the world.
Thanks to Albert Laubi as well, although I hope he continues his excellent work on the textures.
Thanks for letting the email link alive, you probably don't remember, but I still have a few things I promised to show you about the tiling shader.

 

Cheers,

Pascal

Thank you Andras for all your work.  I for one would not have used XP10 and now XP11 without your mesh.  Best of luck in your future endeavor.

I wish him all the best life has to offer...my take (wink-wink-nudge-nudge) is that he just looked at his latest lottery ticket...checked the numbers...and now, his interests lay elsewhere! 🙂  Hey, Andras...I hope my little joke actually holds some truth!!! 🙂

Thank you for all your time and contributions to the hobby.  I see your work, each and every time I  take one 'up there'....

"Over 'n out"....and cheers!

Andras - I don't think I've ever taken the time to thank you and you need to be thanked so -- Thank you!

I'm very positive that it isn't even possible to fly X plane these days without enjoying your contributions.  I really doubt that many of us newcomers know the half of it.  so...thanks.
