I kept FS2002 mainly because I was still designing scenery and aircraft = that needed to work in both versions and could check them. Apart from that I = was more at home with the FS2002 flight dynamics and liked the higher = scenery resolution. The FS2004 upgrade has brought scenery resolution back to FS2002 = standard so the only thing I now have to learn is the modified flight dynamics structure. It's broadly similar to FS2002 but the minor changes make aircraft behave just slightly differently. I suppose I ought to spend = some time on the Tiger Moth as it behaves slightly wrong in FS2004 - the .air file being specific to FS2002. Also in the back of my mind is the fact that FS evolution needs to be = kept on top of and I don't want to fall into the same trap as we did with = FS98. After the release of the VFR England and Wales scenery we started on Scotland and Ireland. Both were slow work but we had carried on even = though FS2000 had already been launched. The scenery was incompatible with this version but few FS users liked it and it encouraged us to continue the = work. So we did - and failed to look at the structure of FS2000 and see that = our work was in dinosaur country.=20 When FS2002 was released the impact was immediate - FS98 was dead and so = was the scenery. Although I had finished my bit the Scotland package was = still well short of completion and so I dropped out of the project and = eventually released the work I had done as freeware on Magrathea. A pity really as = it was the best scenery I had made and only a few people stuck on FS98 = grabbed it. Almost all the team stopped work then because none of us knew the = structure of terrain related scenery. It was some time before we were able to move = on and I think only Iain Gallacher and I actually took this step. bones -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of = FrankTurley@xxxxxxx Sent: 24 November 2004 09:04 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] Re: End of FS2002 =20 In a message dated 24/11/2004 06:39:28 GMT Standard Time, bones@xxxxxxx = writes: FS2002 was a brilliant release and I salute it.
