Recently we have seen a lot of codes used to unlock our products being offered for discounted prices. Almost all of them are bought using stolen credit cards. These codes will all be blocked by our systems and you will have to try to get your money back from the seller, we are unable to assist in these matters. Do be very careful when you see a deal that is almost too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

  1. @LH4371: The things you were mentioning in the post are in my opinion things of less relevance. The proposed rating system will be not trustable without checkrides. Points for well-done flights can only be as ridiculous as they are in FSPassengers. The proposed frequency exchange with the networks sounds good - this requires an API that Online Network Pilot clients can talk to. Thank you for incorporating online networks in your development planning I have never developped a pilot client for the networks, but the key capabilities of the sim should be: * ability for external programs (modules) to open custom windows within the Sim * ability to read plane position/alt/hdg+all axis angles/groundspeed/com frequencies/XPDR code (and mode?) * ability to insert (AI) planes into the simulation * ability to write weather data to the SIM (preferrably just give it a METAR) or allow real time weather in the sim (I think you are planning that, as well) - anyhow, sometimes it makes sense to be able to select the network's weather, see ActiveSky where they have this possibility. Mind that upper winds are important, too. Really great would be: * ability to read transponder mode. Set Standby/A/C/S from the cockpit, not in the pilot client, as we have now * updateable Nav-database (I think you mentioned that earlier) * updateable Groundlayouts of not-sceneried airports (aca AFCAD) * option "do not pause when switching windows" (quite important for online flyers) A good API and good userbase or good potential in the sim will be the key that Online Network software will be developped. I praise your mentioning of a good API, and your experience in the feelings of Addon products developpers will make this a great sim
  2. Leave out ATC: it is so much regional-dependant, you just cannot get that right. Instead provide a framework where online-networks like VATSIM can easily plug in. Make it debuggable for the normal user: give option to write out a lot of logfiles. We see so many CTD's and non-functioning add-ons that this is a real necessity for a serious software. Keep it open: I know you are aerosoft and you want to make money by add-ons. Anyway I want to remind you that some of the greatest momentum in game industry is driven by volunteers. Provide at least a decent API, better still release the source-code of modules like weather, user-input, sound...
