SimToolkitPro 1.0 Released


SimToolkitPro launched just over 3 years ago as a personal projectto help me get better at landings. 3 years on, I'm still not very goodat them, but SimToolkitPro has changed greatly. The first year was aslow one with uptake on users and no "online" functionality at all. Bythe start of year 2, we had hit our first milestone of double digitflights online and later that year VATSIM's Cross the Pond event wehit our high of just over 1000 concurrent flights.

As 1.0 rolls out, we have close to 76,000 active users flight 3000+flights a day. I am consistently humbled by the amount of support thisproject has got over the past 3 years.

For those that don't know STKP is a single developer project,entirely developed to try and give the best available tools to thecommunity for nothing at all as flight simulation is expensive enough!The discord staff and support team are made entirely of volunteersdonating their time to keep STKP running smoothly.

As of the 1.0 release there are also 220+ active patrons over onPatreon helping support the project and allowing me to improve thehardware behind the scenes to provide a better, faster service. If youwant access to the latest test builds you can join themhere.
