Couldn't agree with this sentiment more. As a part-time contracted developer that has worked on some fairly major titles for PC and Console titles over the past few years, I can tell you first hand that you'll never, ever, remedy every issue and bug right out the door on the street date. Attempting to do so will always leave your product in a state of perpetual development.
Hallo Christian und Hallo "fligher0815",
welche Simulatoren habt ihr denn installiert? Wie bereits erwähnt sollte der Installer eine installierte GAP3 Version im FSX erkennen. Durch das manuelle deaktivieren von Tegel bringt man nicht den gesamten Flugsimulator durcheinander.
Not bold at all. Even if the team was sloppy and had no collective ounce of perfectionist ingrained in their work ethic, this thing would never get released if they attempted to squash every bug in the system.
You also don't seem to realize that there is no better group of beta testers than the general public. Case in point: look at all of the threads in Aerosoft's (or hell, any software producer's) support forums. The developers probably couldn't have anticipated half of those bugs and, even so, bugs they may have known about but that are reacting different depending on various end-user configurations. Finding the point with which to finally release 1.0 is more art than science: e.g. what threshold of user errors are you willing to support and deal with out of the gate?
Even so, beta testing has just as much to do with process as it does with the product. If I knew nothing more about the CRJ than perhaps it stands for "Concentrated Raisin Juice," but knew how to identify bugs, replicate them and adequately communicate their characteristics to developers, then I could still be of use. Some of the FS forums are filled with people trying to do nothing more than get early access (as someone else pointed out earlier) to various things and for various reasons. Forgive us if there is virtual eye-rolling whenever someone asks--in poor grammar and all lower-case--to be on a beta team...
please make sure that you have the correct Airbus type selected within the fuel planner before you create the loadsheet.
The red letters in the right MCDU simply tell you, that there is no loadsheet for your currently loaded bus available.
Preview pictures will be published once AS see them fit for publishing, and not on request.
The prize tag will be like the already available buses. The release is still some time in the future, so its still time enough to decide and announce the final conditions.
Just one comment: why should there be a discount on pre-orders? It would be the same product. Furthermore pre-orders are only possible for boxed products, and the boxes of a product will always be released later than the download version. I am sure you wouldn't want to wait a few more weeks while all others are already flying the new bus, right?
Stefan, excellent pics!!! I am curious tho........if you have any issues with the engines, will you be able to see smoke coming out of the air vents? Or should I set up my smoke maker for those in flight failures?
