Third-party developers

Recommended Posts

I have a number of excellent addons by third-party developers, but I know next to nothing about any of them. Out of curiosity, I'm wanting to understand how these projects get off the ground to completion. Is it normally a few ambitious folks that work part-time over many months until completion (not their day job)? Or is it more of a large group of people working long hours every day to produce the final product? I'm thinking it's likely both, but it would be nice to grasp all that's involved in producing complex aircraft. Personally it would drive me crazy, but that's why I'm not a programmer. I sure do enjoy their work though.

Hi,I can speak about HiFi:Damian is the brain trust and the lead programmer. He is the founder and owner of HiFi Simulations.Chris is the artist that created the environmental textures.I am the Support Person for problems, new download requests, review links, contest prizes, and general questions.All of us have NEVER met face to face! In fact, we all live in different time zones.I will not go into detail about the work hours involved, but it is a huge number! As for me, this is NOT my main job, as I teach Science to 14-15 year olds in Detroit Public Schools.Last, but surely not least we have a testing team that is second to none! They too, work long hours whenever we need them. They reside world-wide, have a multitude of hardware and software combinations, and provide us with the feedback and many of the options for our products.So for HiFi, it is a total team effort. We all have our skills, talents and levels of expertise. It is the support, dedication, and blending into a team that has made us who we are today!Thanks, Jimhttp://www.hifisim.com/Active Sky V6 Development Team Active Sky V6 Proud SupporterHiFi Beta TeamRadar Contact Supporter: http://www.jdtllc.com/AirSource Member: http://www.air-source.us/FSEconomy Member:http://www.fseconomy.com/
