Frank, See my reply to the FT.Not that it's anyone else's business but I live entirely on my UK company pension, plus OAP. Beyond that I'm not prepared to go. It's a bit early in the day to take offence but I've managed it!
The designer of the scenery isn't retired, has a young family and was made redundant by Horizon. The business he's just set up, so I understand, will be his only source of income. Although not a charity, I regard my modest investment of £17 as going to a deserving cause. Fortunately I can afford it. I must admit that I hadn't thought that I should expect to get my money's worth out of any charity to which I've given.
In addition, spending such a modest amount on this piece of Payware somewhat reduces the feelings of unease I have about the large volume of Freeware scenery that has brought me so much pleasure, over many years.

Frank TThose of us who have to rely on pensions, or do not live in tax havens, have to watch the pennies, as well as cater for the wants of others.I would support a worthwhile charity, provided I get my monies worth out of it.I have quite a number of FS boxes which have been installed, looked at and no longer used, and now gathering dust on the shelves. Prudence now prevails.As an aside, I have just installed an Aerospatiale SA342 Gazelle on my FSX system, and it flies a dream, hover taxi and hovering easy peasy. I have no idea how or where I got it, but have a feeling that it was a one off freeware from Abacus recently (they do that now and again) but I cannot find any trace of it now. If you do not have it, and interested, I could pass it to you(if wanted) through Skype one evening..Frank F
