"Kryz's work was bashed time and time again."
Antigoon, thanks for this information, which I did not know. Also thanks "docado". Anyway, after repeated accusations against Krzysz, I wonder if someone from this Forum has defended Krzysz. And I also wonder if this succession of accusations was carried out by a single member of the Forum, or by several. If there were several, that accusatory attitude is still much more serious. How can one be so ungrateful, with a man who has brought to the Forum, those of us who like to fly, so many original planes?
A man who joins the Forum contributes a repository of 56 aircraft, of which the list I present here are all aircraft that fly reasonably well (some such as the Piper PA-38 Tomahacwk,, Rutan Long_EZ; Rutan Quickie 2; Zlin 526 and Z lin Z-50 LX; Yak 18 T; Edgley EA-7 Optica; P-51 Mustang; Bleriot XI, etc. frankly well); How can you be bothered, or even be offended repeatedly?
Whether it was just one or several who offended him, I tell you this:
Krzysz made a considerable number of planes available to us; some very old, others not so much, and that despite not being definitively finished to fly correctly, most fly reasonably well. No one forces you to fly with them. You have the right not to use them, but at least you must respect their decision to offer them to this community free of charge, and you must also respect that the vast majority of the members of this Forum accept willingly and enjoy these aircraft despite all its shortcomings.
I do not dislike criticism, but when it is well founded, when it is right. Here there are professionals of the computer science, of the graphic design, programmers etc, who contribute to this community their knowledge, their help to many who need it (me among them); some have even contributed planes and very well finished. How can we not thank them? Well, Krzysztof has contributed more than all the others. And because not everyone flies correctly, (the instrument panel does not work correctly, etc.), do we have the right to punish him repeatedly and offensively?
I suppose adapting all those planes to fly in "FS 2" will have cost Krzysztof quite a few hours of work. We all like (and it is very human) that we are paid for our work, and ... how much have we paid Krzysztof for all those hours that he has not offered?
I am the first to do so: Krzysztof, return to this Forum. Despite everything, the majority, THE IMMENSE MAJORITY of the members of this Forum, we ask you to come back and we thank you for that collection of flying machines that you have voluntarily given us.
Kind regards: Delfin
