  1. What happen to the Aer Lingus A319?

      Sorry to disappoint you but my liveries are no longer available . It was not a decision I took lightly with some 240 liveries and almost 100000 downloads . I was simply " underwhelmed " by the support I received not just from Aerosoft but also the very forum members who ( seemed to have ) agreed with the actions taken by Aerosoft .

       

      I recently opened this topic :

       

      http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/124861-repaints-and-intellectual-property-ip/

       

      This later turned out to be a misunderstanding on my part . I remedied this by apologising to the person concerned in the open forum ( instead of privately ) and also uploaded reworked textures and an additional 2 new liveries .

      If you take the time to read this thread you will see that other issues came to light that only made everything worse . Aerosoft decided to remove two of the most popular airline livery sets ( American - one of which had more than 13500 downloads for just one registration and SAS - the entire Airbus fleet ) made by DetCord and myself without even asking our permission to do so . Simply put , if I was planning to remove my paints why would I be uploading improved liveries and additional paints .

      I was at the time active in the forum still making liveries by request including entire fleets and read the posts on a daily basis but now I see no reason for " contributing " anything here unless an apology is given ( not just to myself ) and that all painters are given the recognition and status they deserve ( instead of just one ) .

       

      Before being able to reply to the topic above it was locked so I started this thread :

       

      http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/126031-removal-of-uploads/

       

      Even after stating that I had no intention of removing any repaints ( and expecting that the American and SAS liveries would be re-installed on the server ) , it seems that a small minority took it upon themselves to start downvoting every post I made for whatever reason without being brave enough to actually tell me what they " disagreed " with . Even now ( one month later , these posts are still being downvoted ) . I was however disappointed to discover that no one chose to comment in a positive manner or show any support as to what happened . It seems that people are thinking I only painted the Bus for " free stuff " , the only problem with that is I never asked for ( or was offered ) anything from Aerosoft for my repaints even though the American A321 ( N911UY ) is included in the product but Aerosoft " forgot " to include our names in the manual and we received absolutely nothing for it , although others have ( in the past ) received free copies for pointing out spelling / grammatical errors in the manuals or simply uploading a video . This made it perfectly clear that my input in the last 7 years wasn't worth that much ( if anything at all ) .

      This attitude led me to the conclusion that my only option was to remove ALL of my liveries ( some 240 ) myself as no one from the Aerosoft staff chose to make any kind of a reply to my posts and have in fact ignored them . With the sheer number of repaints involved I have no plans to upload anywhere else at this time due to the amount of work this would entail .

       

      You could post in the painters forum asking for the livery to be made , or if you were one of the people who " donated " to Holgi's new PC you could ask him ( and have every right to do so ) although he hasn't uploaded anything Airbus related since May 2016 .

       

      I could have just replied " NO " to your post but I feel it is important that you understand that it was definitely NOT my decision to remove anything in the first place , the " MISunderstanding " is all Aerosoft's doing , not mine .

       

      John
