  1. Awesome Partick, brings back memories from years ago. What sim/platform please as I need to get it, thanks!
  2. There is no question there was plenty of pilot error, it's just a matter of determining the fault line between that and how much the MCAS system and lack of training contributed: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/18/magazine/boeing-737-max-crashes.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share
  3. It's back to the future Anders....the brave new world of 1984.
  4. Or at least the policy change should have been clearly and prominently announced and those with past status and recognition grandfathered in. Taking away prior recognition is a sure way to reduce future interest in donating by both past and potential donors.
  5. Very happy to see you back Mitch. Have seen a number of posts with questions and concerns about you. Hope you are happy and well. Not easy on earthbound mortals when the Baron of screenshots vanishes into thin air!
  6. The only season not included will be the winter of our discontent:)
  7. Thanks very much for all these Devon, much appreciated!
  8. John...I respect and understand your opinion, although there is obviously a love of aviation and desire to learn from past mistakes in the OP. What often sends these threads south imho is unnecessary hyperbole in responses, as in saying such a post "makes us look like those who orchestrated 9/11..." I applaud P_7878 for not reacting to that association and hopefully what you wrote is not what you meant to imply. I thought the OP's motives and purpose for the post were very clear and in no way resembled the comparison.
  9. What in the world are you talking about Paul; I must have misinterpreted. In 2003 IL2 had sold over 1.2 million units worldwide, a number many times multiplied now with subsequent iterations. There are numerous advantages other sims have over your favorites, including market leading flight dynamics and dynamic campaigns etc. that Murmur and HiFlyer know more about than I do. And many advantages of your favorites from your perspective. Even a 1st grader understands the differences in people, their perspectives and interests:) I get quickly bored programming a PC within a PC (FMC) to program a flawless flight across an endless expanse of ocean. I would much prefer to "fly" within a dynamic environment. I also understand the perspective and market for those who prefer otherwise.
  10. God bless Gunny, may he rest in peace. By all accounts of his co-actors a genuine and good man who served his flag with honor. Thanks for the link.
  11. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0043859/ No Highway in the Sky, a classic with Jimmy Stewart
  12. You continually talk as if the OP requested support; he did not. All he did was to make accusatory statements which are obviously untrue even to the casual surfer on this forum, i.e., product does not work, is not compatible, and is not market ready; all easily established false just on Avsim. He did not bother to scan the forum and see the consensus on how outstanding both this product and support is, or apparently have the humility to recognize that as a "human," perhaps human error was involved when essentially no one else is experiencing his problem. Why would any developer wish to dive into that black hole when there are people who approach him with the respect he has earned, and who understand "user error" or "system anamoly" is not the fault or responsibility of the developer? People like Keven make this simulated world the awe-inspiring virtual reality it has become and deserve much better, lest they retreat to a more civil enclave and leave us to our own far less immersive devices.
  13. Jeroen...first my sincere appreciation for you keeping us up to date on FS 2, as I have developed strong interest and plan to buy in Sept. due primarily to following your updates. I have been out of simming for about 5 years due to family and career, but will be in a position to be back in the game in about 6 weeks. Given I love flying in the western US I frankly can't wait to do Vegas to SFO etc. w/o tweaking, a lot of addons, etc. A bonus is that I love to do the old school analog style vs. programming fmc, so esp looking forward to the Lear 45. Couldn't find any screens of that cockpit on the site, so if you have any experience with the 45 and care to comment on it would be interested. Also curious if the flight dynamics are up to your standards with their current aircraft, esp the Lear or new Dash 8. Thanks a lot for keeping us informed and breathing new life into my sim enthusiasm at just the right time.
