am sorry for u nels. just as our sun will flare up into a red giant then disintigrate into a white dwarf, flightsim.com is going to flare up with traffic from the introduction of the disastrously conceived "flight", then disintigrate slowly into an ever dwindling core of never-say-die flightsimmers from previous versions, till it is the merest shadow of its former self. just as our sun will run out of fuel for fusion, this site will run out of advertisements for addons (and dwindling revenue offered or paid from same), and suffer from shrinking interest in a product no longer driven by future interest in a flight simulator, (rather than an arcade game), or by participation from third party developers. u have been cut out of the loop, and deemed obsolete (see also the reminder of my two year old prediction in this thread http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showth...itial-thoughts ). as have we all. your "this has happened with every new version" comments have long since failed to fool anybody who thinks. such comments (other than the most general complaints) did NOT run rampant about versions previous to fs10. no version before fs10 required multiple service packs to make it work anything near properly, or was advertised with such fantastic lies told about it. but at least, as half-finished and clusterfouled an abortion of a product it was, at least fs10 could still be called a flight simulator. and look at what it's degenerated into. nobody goes anywhere but orbx, because it wont work worth a damn around a city. not even going on 4 years later.
now even that vestige of hope is gone. ive had numerous jobs yanked out from under me in my life, including my professional flying career, and i do sympathize. but NOT to the point of sanctioning you hoodwinking your members as to the fact that its all but over. you already know everything ive said, or else youre in the worst and most sef-destructive kind of denial. encouraging people to participate in this latest scam from m$ is unconscionable. you need to do the honorable thing and fall on your sword. promote more worthwile products and get them to advertise more. besides, thats not only the only the only honorable thing to do, its also the only possible way to save your site.
it will be interesting to see if this thread, or my membership, still exist tomorrow. but as ive already said, (http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showth...t=before+i+die), that's not important anymore either.
