Nathan is right about the effort involved in environments. Sydney and part of Antarctica are scheduled for SS 2009. It is quite possible that there may not be any new environments for SS 2008.

Sydney and Antarctica. That's good news even if it won't be available until next year.

Hello everebody, still not understanding such critism again VSTEP.
The simulator not matching your expectation ? Don't buy it and try to find another ship simulator (yes there is a few).
The simulator is still not very accurate ? Ok VSTEP is a small company. That's why i bought all products (including add-ons) to support them.
Your bank account is low or you don't want to buy it ? Maybe you can help them by sending ship's pilot cards or sea trials reports or other materials instead of unconstructive critism.
Do that and i bet the next SS 20XX will be better so far.

jibemorel, i dont really think your first post as a new member was very polite, but thats just me. But, yes people, you gotta be patient, u have to give them time to think, to model and to test and add. You can't just say that, hey we want this, and have it the next day! Patience people, all about patience, i've been waiting forever for QM2, but i not really complaining, i'd model it myself, but im not good enough for her yet!
Thanx

Good afternoon TerryRussell, Kapn Jonah, all members.
Kapn Jonah : sorry if you didn't my first post unpolite (there is no personal attack against anybody tough), you're right it's my first post, altough i am not a new member since i used SS2006 and 2008 for a long time (and looking forward the next version). Just thougt that the subject of this topic was a little bit "negative" , didn't help anybody to improve the game and tried to explain my point of view.
Terry Russell : didn't want to take your job (you do it very well) and appreciate your assistance.

All the best,

In transit from Ontario to London, so Greenland seems to be the most appropriate for most of the day....

If you thought this post was a little "negative" you'll find yourself spending a lot of time replying to posts all over this forum with your opinions. It may just be me but it seemed like when vstep was developing SS08 we were all kept up do date with the developments and new features that they were working on, via youtube or announcements on this forum. So far I haven't seen or heard anything about what they are working on for the shipyard or even SS09 for that matter. It would be nice to at least know what to look forward to. How else would we know if  all of the suggestions and requests we have all been asking for are even being considered.

VStep have a fund of information on this forum of peoples' hopes and expectations for SS09 but they seem to prefer to keep people in the dark now.

Like the shipyard when there is a lot of expectation and chatter, then silence when people get bored and then lo and behold - Bingo something pops up in the shipyard.

Hi Mike,
I think VSTEP have learned that any hint of the future that they give gets transformed into a promise to deliver. They then get castigated if things don’t happen when folks imagined that they should, accused of breaking promises they never made—even of lying. There is no reason for them to “keep us informed”, and many good reasons not to.

Marty

That was totally uncalled for, Sir!

I think that your tone even justifies asking you to apologize to a respected member that has contributed a lot to this forum and the game.

I don't know what kind of problem you have here, but if you cannot take Mvsmith's usual spot of sarcasm here and there, I think you better ignore him alltogether and refrain from replying.

This is not the first time you have been inpolite to another person on the forum, so consider this a warning.

Thank you.

Regards,
Fred

Who? Well ME for a start. Obviously.

Your attitude is not very desirable, my friend. Insulting people with snide remarks is not the way to go. Just a friendly bit of advice.

That’s OK Fred. An apology from him would be without meaning. His remarks say more about him than about me.
It is unfortunate that he identified himself in my reference to fools. Now I feel a bit like the prince in “Cinderella”.

I guess you're right, it wouldn't mean much, Marty. Pity some people take unnecessary offence like that, oh well...

I see that the list of "unread post since last visit" have decreased a lot this month :D
Before I had maybe 3-5 pages of unread posts..lol. Now I usually just one page ;D

I wonder what will happen when the Christmas arrives? Maybe a 3-5 pages unread posts again :D

Yeah the activity is low....(and bright on the "other side")

100% agree. Marty provides a tremendous amount of input, most of which is unseen by most members of this forum.

I know that Marty is more tolerant of fools than I am ('cos he said so. He is the more diplomatic one, compared to me, or so he told me).
