  1. Eh, personally I just let it slide off by thinking back to what we said in my Army days - "A complaining soldier is a happy soldier." 😉
  2. Yessir buddy! I've got many an hour playing Choplifter on my Apple IIe in the mid 80's. As real as it gets back then. 🤣
  3. For those that don't have 6 minutes to watch the video, it's being released Monday 5/9. Price not mentioned.
  4. At times I think they use the million monkey development methodology - Give a million monkeys a million piano's and one of them will eventually play Beethoven.
  5. Every now and then I'll lose my Simlink connection. If I sign back in to Navigraph it comes back up.
  6. Aerosoft CRJ. It's become my go-to aircraft.
  7. Thank you. A couple years ago I retired from a career in corporate software development. My last few years I had to suffer through the "Agile Development Methodology", which based on what I'm seeing with MSFS is what MSObo is using. To me it was a developers nightmare. Slam dunk software updates on a monthly schedule solely so IT Management could pat themselves on the back trying to justify their existence. At the same time what the users really needed got put on a "roadmap" to be implemented who knows when and when implementation for their needs finally arrived, they usually got half of what they asked for. I'm done ranting. Please carry on. 😁
  8. All that does is make Neumann a master of the incredibly obvious and telling us what he thinks we want to hear. We've seen little to no positive effort in resolving these issues.
  9. Considering Asobo's proven track record, fixing bugs will more than likely introduce other bugs, no it won't.
  10. Nous n'avons jamais le temps de le faire correctement mais nous avons toujours le temps de le réparer At least that's what Google says. 😁
  11. Ok class, can we spell i-n-t-e-g-r-a-t-i-o-n t-e-s-t-i-n-g? It's only been common IT practice since the punch card days. Until now, that is. I somehow survived and a couple years ago retired from a 35 year career in corporate IT, software development. A common saying/joke among the developers was, and still is, "we never have time to do it right but we always have time to fix it." -Jeff
  12. @Fielder If it weren't for you I wouldn't have known about this; I updated this morning. Thanks much!! Jeff Foster
  13. Exactly this. (I too spent 35 years in software development before I retired a couple years ago.) Remember a few World Updates ago where they fubar'd the flaps and we were all floating down the runway and couldn't land? A WU should have *no* effect on aircraft handling. I still laugh at Asobo's first "fix" - users edit the individual aircraft config files and divide the exist flap parameter by 2.
  14. I have only one, the PMDG DC-6 and to me it was worth every penny. It being the same generation as me and having gotten my private certificate in those days has a lot to do with it.
  15. I don't know if this is along the lines of what you're looking for but I've heard good things about FS Academy. I'll be getting their IFR tutorial soon. They just came out with a "Jetliner" tutorial. https://www.fsacademy.co.uk/jetliner
