Yes we are still around! Chip’s recovery is extremely slow, poor chap is finding it hard to sit up for extended periods. Funny, Im like that myself after too many ciders.
Even FT56 has been slammed by some sort of flu. Must be my turn next.
Me, I’ve been working on a couple of surprise resources that all new xplane users should love, coming out soon…
Interesting post from Ben today. They seem to want the usual free market approach to dictate evolution of the default sceneries. No real coordination of who does what, a real wild west, winner takes everything style.
So all you budding scenery manipulators, keep your greasy paws off YMMB and YMML, I’m staking a claim on those.
Of course nothing stops you from doing a quick half-arsed attempt first, it’ll just get included in Robin’s updates, hardly anyone will notice. Then when someone else like me does a ‘better’ job, your work can be trashed (not sure how they’ll vote on that one!) and mine can take over. And so the Circle of X-Life goes, with some other uber-dude doing the same to me another time.
In a way it doesn’t really matter. Most of the dedicated freeware add-ons, like Baz’s Aussiepak will still be far superior to any Lego brick, generic build. Those in the know will realise that.
Rant over. Read Ben’s post here:
