What Happened To All The Freeware Groups?

Tue Dec 17, 2002 4:29 am

Lately it seems that none of the freeware groups seem to be releasing anything except Posky. Project Airbus has a great A320 and will soon be releasing the A319. However, they said that they will paint every airline, and I haven't seen a new one added for months. Their site hasn't been updated in months either. FFG hasn't done anything since their FS2002 DC-10-10, which is just an updated version of their FS2k DC-10. CSI still considers their 717 their new release, and Allied FS Group hasn't put anything out either. Did people just stop designing aircraft?

That is the way it works. We have had three major releases lately - Meljet 744, POSKY 744 and Project Fokker. The others are probably busy working on their models and it will be their turn next. Project Airbus are busy with the A319 as you say, so that will take priority over liveries. I expect the A319 will be released with various repaints - a culmination of several months work. Knowing them, it will not be released until perfect. POSKY were very quiet a few months ago, but with so many 3rd party repaints coming out, you did not notice.

Hi
Actually... FFG released their FSDS SAAB340 not long ago.. And AFG is about to release their YS-11 version 2 with a new virtual cockpit and new panel and sounds!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Also, on the 31th this month, IDFG will release their gMax 757-200... Abd do not forget that POSKY just released their gMax 747-400F. So who says freeware groups are getting inactive?  Wink/being sarcastic
