I hope developers are reading this, because I'm disgusted at how they all gave up on FS9. Their claims that it is no longer a profitable sim to develop for couldn't be more wrong.
There are so many people still using FS9 who want to purchase add-ons, however since they all dismissed it as being an "old and outdated sim" and stopped developing for it, we basically just have the old payware packages which are slowly becoming freeware cause they completely lost faith in the profitability of FS9.
I sent an email to Carenado saying that I wanted their new packages for FS9 and they told me they would convert the FSX packages to FS9 for me for about $100 per package? Are they kidding me?
If you look at the sales stats for the older paywares, they are still being sold. Some developers even admit that over half of their profits come from the old FS9 packages, however when asked to continue FS9 development they say no way.
I just don't get it. The proof is there that money is still to be made here, and yet nobody wants to pursue it. I guess this is something I will have to fix myself.
