    Also not to forget MAAM-Sim with Bill Rambow, Jan Visser, Fred Banting, Robert Young, Bill Womack, Howard Sodja and Mark Beaumont with their marvelous DC-3, B-25 Mitchel and TBM Avenger.

    As well as Marco Spada, the panel artist from Italia.

    There are still a few that haven't been mentioned yet and have retired from FS9 and given up further creations. I am thinking, for example, of John Young (JYAI). And that's quite symptomatic.

    You have listed numerous names of very appreciated persons here which have supported and promoted the further development of FS9 with decisive contributions. With a few exceptions, unfortunately we can no longer count on their cooperation.

    Therefore my simple but very apprehensive question: who will follow? If any. I don't think anyone has seriously understood and noticed the latent impoverishment of FS9.

    The late Gary Russell for some excellent aircraft. His unfinished but still useable Bristol Superfreighter and Canadair CL-44 are well worth having. Also the late Leon Louis who gave us a large number of fictitious but very enjoyable Quebec airfields sceneries. Finally Don Grovestine ,maker of superb British Columbia airport scenery, who's recent death was announced earlier in this thread.

    Who will follow? Hard to say; it's a foregone conclusion that whomever picks up the mantle, it's purely for the love of the Sim. You're not going to see new content from the big Payware companies; as long as they can make top dollar on their existing offerings (they can thank the online Retailers for that), they'll keep selling them, regardless of how long ago they were 'made'. To them, FS9 is obsolete.
