I'm actually waiting for a price drop, at least to 7.99. I feel more confortable buying games at that price somehow

Well i can see it from both sides, but calling added in game advertisements "improvements" is crazy. I'm sure it's an improvement for the dev though... I love that freeverse gave me the option to turn them off in Burning Monkey Casino.

still! helicopter and prob airliner are $5. i spent $10 on you and you come advertise!? i emailed him. look, if he adds the new locations from the other apps i won't care about the ads. leave it like that; then bring the stuff you promised like 3 months ago in a week for an updae to the original app in seperate? pissed off.

Just out of curiosity (cuz I don't own either app): There was a promise at some time to add helicopters to X-Plane. Has this happened? Or did they just release X-Plane-Helicopter instead and make you pay for the helicopters?

That just sucks! It looks like they outright lied.


I thought maybe X-Plane-Helicopter was a "light" version of sorts and those who have the full version would get the Choppers for free.

yeah. and airliners were supposed to be in the full version too. and is in a seperate app. i will calm down if they put at least the different locations in the full version.

According to what he said, I doubt he will.

Hmm.. there HAVE ben about 4 free updates to X-Plane, including one that came out today.

So, I am quite certain I AM doing the promised free updates.

And, more free updates are planned in the future, as well… so I think I am giving good service for the teeny $10 fee… though no, I do not promise that you get EVERYTHING for $10.
