MAIW Christmas time is coming

Post by gsnde »

Starting tomorrow, Tuesday 14th, we will release one FSX/P3D Conversion Pack every day until December, 31st :smt114

The MAIW FSX/P3D conversion project started 10. January 2018 with the release of the HTAI F-16. Arno Gerretsen's ModelConverterX had introduced the possibility to convert beloved aircraft of the FS9 era into the world of FSX/P3D. This generated a lot of expectations and demand - the number of aircraft on our conversion list grew scary large.

It was no small task to gather all the approvals of the original modelers and painters to convert their aircraft. But we have never been denied, and say "thankee-sai" for this.

Today this list has been worked through with the exception of very few aircraft. We have released 205 packages , which you have downloaded - no kidding - 246.196 times in total. So this is a good opportunity to say thank you to the people who have obtained the knowledge and invested countless hours into this project.

19 people, alone or in teams, have converted aircraft in the last four years. This is to say 'thank you' in the name of MAIW and on behalf of the community.

I'm still a user of the old good FS9, so I'm not directly interesed in this amazing work.
I just want to say that this is another great example of collaboration between people, that has been always one of the major strenght of this great and fantastic Group.
Merry Christmas and thanks to all.

What an outstanding achievement from a team of 20 people all working together. Not only has the process to be discovered, learned by all and practiced, but the stamina to keep going is a real credit in the production of a phenomenal 205 packages. Well done to everyone who has worked on the project and hats off to all the original authors who gave their permissions in the first place.

Jings, I thought you folks had been quiet, and was getting worried.

What a present! Thank-you very much.

Thoughts and best wishes for the team past, present and future.

To be honest it's because Martin and I disappear into hiding from time to time just to get a break. The package conversion devs are relentless. :smt100 :-D

Thank you gents, I never get what I want despite family asking. The relatively cheap flight sim hobby always delivers!

FS9 user, but an opportunity to say a huge thank you to all those who provide the material for those of us without the capacity or knowledge to return the favour - yet. Season's greetings everyone!

205 packages and some more on the stove might also convince some of you test FSX or P3D ;-)
