Gary came to us when were going through personel changes at OSS due to designers having real world job changes and other scheduling conflicts.

At that time we were also developing numerous relationships with the airports we are designing and they themselves were also doing a lot of construction at those airports which in turn cost us devlopment time when we made the decision to try and keep up and model current items.

Amongst all that there were other issues including time delays due to other relationships with real world airlines and decisions to make other products even more detailed which caused personel shifts to other projects at the same time.

I've explained all this time and again and I don't like repeating myself. You can call us vaporware all you want, I really don't care, because we are going to stay our course and do what we think is right. We have not promised anything we couldn't deliver so far after 3 products so no one has any reason to say otherwise.

I have also explained and even apologized for our announcement schedule and changed the policy to reflect these new changes as you can easily see in our forums and new web site.

I also see that other developers are catching the same flack in their forums.

All I can say is that if you don't like then I guess I'll just have to live with that fact but I won't let the prisoners run the prison if you know what I mean.

Funny... You still put "KMCI" in your sig as if it's going to be done before... umm well, let's say, before KMCI becomes the Stapleton of KC. Heh.

Some developers get fussed at over being slow to release a product, but they always eventually release the product... and until then, they don't annouce a half dozen OTHER products at about the point when the first one is a year or two behind schedule.

So you can see why you're the laughing stock of the payware industry. 8)

Fortunately Martin made one of the airports you announced anyway, rather than backing off the idea and letting you have it. We wouldn't have Midway today, if he hadn't. Thank you, Martin!

We didn't announce our stuff with the intention or foresight of having the delays we had. Do you understand that?? Probably not. That's perfectly ok, you don't have to buy it when it's released.

KMCI is my sig block because that's where our company is based out of and I am a real world pilot from there and live about 5nm from the airport itself.

Speaking of MDW we actually had both started the project without each other knowing it and we decided to go another direction and drop ours, thus causing further delays.

The only laughing stock here is you! Who do you think you are to talk to me like that?

Since this is Martin's forum we can take the rest of this offline if you like there kiddo.
