Microsoft Flight Simulator has been my favorite hobby for a lot of years. It seems like we are just now beginning to see the kind of potential I always hoped for. Most of us know that Microsoft is not known for being an “open-source” environment. But luckily, there has been an awful lot of sharing information to make Microsoft Flight Simulator a loosely collaborative work.
I have always needed more than a little friendly advice because of the highly sophisticated software environment to make flight simulation possible, and of course, the rigorous demands from hardware and operating system. So, in order for one to become a flight sim enthusiast, requires one to also learn how to get the most from his computer. Thus, I have benefited greatly from the wealth of knowledge to be found in forums like this one.
Alas, after spending approximately a month or six weeks seeking to get as firm a grasp as possible for the ongoing development of MSFS , I find it too difficult to ignore the constant barrage of disrespect and lack of common regard that any question or comment should be given. Snarky replies seem to come out of nowhere.
It seems that the longer a thread continues, it is only a matter of time until Someone has to descend into a negatively charged conversation. Which makes it next to impossible to ignore, and try to simply share information.
And, share the same hobby. I suppose I will continue to glean needed information on software updates, but I sure wish I could hang out here and share in the hobby. I expect that this very post will attract the same kinds of critical, condescending, mean-spirited b.s. Which is fine. Because I’m over-and-out.
P.S. Anyone know of a forum where friendly folks share knowledge and hobby of Microsoft Flight Simulator? I’d be interested in a referral.
