My initial response is that with as many suppliers as there are now, (and I am sure it will be growing), I will not be purchasing anything from anybody from whom I bought payware for FS2002 and refuses to upgrade it for FS2004.
Some items will have an update, but if the cost is prohibitive in my opinion, those suppliers will also be wiped from my wish list permanently. (and by all means I am NOT talking about FSUIPC and the like items. It was free anyway and this is the first time any restitution was requested.) I am trying to be objective, not flame anybody.
My number one example is a combination of a 747-400 and 777-200 which are two of my favorite addon's for which the supplier states that "no update will be available". Totally new ones will be designed for FS2004. They are updating some of their birds, but not these, which are among my favorites.
Well, this is fine if they are supplied free (Ha hA!) or at a reasonable update like cost to update the ones I already purchased. Otherwise, I will erase this source from my mental database permanently, along with all other like sources. There are other sources which are updating their same plane designs. Those sources will be from where I purchase my FS2004 addons.
Am I just being hard to get along with, or is this a reasonable reaction?
What do you think?
