    Hi Steve,

    While not unexpected - I do feel bad for those that embraced it... DTG garnered quite a bit of enthusiasm which I did try to temper with my experience with them over here... I think DTG’s plan was really an attempt to capture all the 3rd party developers and get a piece of their action with every and every purchase... I don’t think anyone really bought into this and without third party developers - the product was dead in the starting blocks... While having alternatives is good - in little niche markets - such as we have here - I think it just fragments our already limited resources - taking away from other products that show more potential...

    I can’t say I’m sorry to see them go and thanks for the heads up...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Yes, I feel for Flightsimmers, such as your goodself, Scott, and many others, I was myself involved for over 7 years, and put a lot of money into various developers pockets, however, this news is not the end of the world, as such, you still have FS, FSX and Prepar3D to continue with your past-time from the Microsoft stable, and a few other brand new FlightSims are coming onto the market, there are a few now chasing the niche customers within this hobby.

    Anyway, I think I've hijacked this thread enough now, so, I'd better sign off.....

    Well it is relevant (in case the Mods are watching these FSW comments) in so far as it is due warning for anyone thinking of buying DTG products - within the limits of what we can say by the CoC and stopping short of libel/slander!

    Yes, it's probably best to put your wallet away in your back pocket again, when considering buying DTG products at the present.

    Take it out again in half a year or so, and see what progress DTG has made with TSW before making a purchase of that franchise.
