Erm, tbh I made the 3d for Josh and am still maintaining it - even though nothing New is currently planned. Not saying it is perfect as is now but its not "not taken care of", imo

Ok, D-ECHO, that was not obvious. Sorry, if this has come up somewhat negatively.
I just don't want you to be distracted from the super pretty C140 ;-)

Do you really think I care about my standing. I joined the forum to try and understand the working s of the planes I fly. I don't have the skills necessary to put things right or change things. All I have ever done is point out things when they aren't working properly based on information I have read about, either from past FG threads or real world flying.

As for your first point there is no guidance on which board index sub heading should be used. As it happens everyone can read all threads so others decide the right sub heading which still doesn't indicate why it's chosen.

It was just an idea with various advantages. Noted, that you have chosen not to use it.

There is clearly a difference in the way of working here. To keep information bundled it is important to stay on the topic. You find this written in bold on top of the page. Other guys might search in the forum for different issues. And at times it is important to get the whole discussion. Knowledge management ;-)
Also it is important to get the priority items fixed. And these are not necessarily the same as the ones a single user is calling for.

Thanks D-ECHO for working on the reflections. Quite amazing feature. Maybe on the side windows intensity should be tied to the instrument lighting as well? ;-)

BTW: Being forced to limit social activities has its advantages. Doing some things in OpenVSP currently....

Oh the irony: Thanks D-ECHO for working on the reflections. Quite amazing feature. Maybe on the side windows intensity should be tied to the instrument lighting as well? ;-) The problem I highlighted.

Do you really think I care about my standing.


It's been pretty obvious that you don't - all we get to hear from you is that things don't work the way you like them, and that appears to be your main concern.

Whereas 'your standing' is important for the collaborative work that creates all of what you enjoy here. Bad-mouthing people's work neither gets you want you like, nor does it help the project in any way - it is just destructive. There is *gasp* also a constructive approach in which you create something yourself, or help others by finding information they need (rather than trying to get everyone focused on what you believe you need).

I'm sure you're able to see the difference after some thinking :D

The problem I highlighted.


In fact you did not - you called the whole reflection 'bloody awful' without any sign of understanding that reflection of a bright interior is a problem in reality and without any hint that a connection to residual light should be in - that information was supplied by someone else.

As I said above - that's a fairly good example of destructive bad-mouthing vs. meaningful critique. Try more of the latter.
