Hmmmm... it seems what I intended to convey was lost in translation... or maybe my command over English is still not so good... yet again... story of my life... every God-forsaken time I say something, NO MATTER WHAT, someone tries to glean hidden meanings out of it. Meanings that were never supposed to enter the fray. Kind of a curse I have on myself (one of the two, but the other is unimportant here
), I MUST remember to write all sort of disclaimers and attached notes not to be misinterpreted, should not have forgot.
First. I am not criticizing the choice of supporting P3d, FlightGear and other lesser used sims. I do quite support the motion indeed. THIS IS WHY I cannot but remain stumped when a forum that DO support them just goes out of their way to ignore a, yes, admittedly niche sim... but surely a not smaller niche of the already talked of FlightGear.
Second. I am quite a supporter of freeware myself. The few payware I have go back to a period of time I "worked
" as a reviewer for another site that shall remain unnamed, and back then payware flowed copious in my FS... but those times are long over and never had anything to do with X-plane, and I do not quite understand why it got out I was endorsing payware over freeware when I never even hinted at anything of the like. This said, for X-plane the freeware is quite numerous, and if you want, I can give some links to testify this statement.
Third. If the main site does not hold any freeware for X-plane, this doesn't mean someone could find themselves in hot water with a whatever add-on for their X-plane and search for help, or give sometimes interesting insights into said platform. A forum like this should be used to exchange knowledge about flight simming, and X-plane is hardly a submarine simulator.
Fourth. My suggestion was just that a suggestion. If you do not like it, just disregard my request. Do not shoot on the messenger, please.
Fifth. Your eyes are deceiving you. There is no fifth point.
