Not that suprising when you think how much it costs and how specialist they are.

Please don't use SimWare (I have found the service very poor!) but for you it would would be much better for an American company called "FlightSim" who I've heard have pretty good reviews....

I can say that I have been using simware for my sim hardware, and some software, needs for a long long time now, and made many many purchases, including hardware in the price range of the ship console.

I have never been let down, it's always been delivered in time, and at times I found them to be cheaper than some other retailers, with specific products.

I have used their support system several times when a product was faulty (not their fault but manufactorer's) and I got perfect service and the problem was solved very fast. They were easy to talk to, and went an extra mile for me.

And I never got any malware notifications from my 'AV package' on them. Any chance you use norton?  ::)

So, I guess it all depends on personal experience..  ::)  ;D

Regards
Fred

Funny you should say that, I sent an email to Wilcopub complaining about Simwares service, and it was so embarrasing  :doh: The marketing guy at simware is the same marketing director at Wilcopub!

So the two must be connected  ;)

Hi guys,

Here is the reply from SimWare about this "security notice" thing :

Denis,

We're working on it.
The problem is now fixed but Google needs time to update its system.

Thanks

Fred

About SimWare, I bought several things from them - Flying hardware and Flight Simulator Addons. I've always been very satisfied with them, very good communication about oders, hints before buy, and absolutely amazing delivery time (I usually get my orders more quickly than when I buy on french website). One of the best online merchant I've never dealt with.

Funny how we complain about the price of the SCU, while the Flight Sim boys spend alot more on hardware for their sim  :doh:

I work for P.I. Engineering.  I was assigned the task of finally bringing the ShipDriver to launch:

http://www.shipdriver.com/products/shipdriver.php

...after an unbelievable number of setbacks, delays, and other issues.  :-[

I have been testing it with both SS2008 and SS Extremes.  It works well with both.  As VSTEP makes more controls and other shortcuts available in future releases of Extremes, it will work even better. 

Aside from "What took you so long?", I would be happy to answer any questions.   :)

Well, judging by the images on the website, I do have a couple of questions...

Will the casing of the control unit be plastic, or metal. Also will it be a tinted blue colour or grey?

Secondly, will the switches remain blue?

Thirdly, will there be any lights on this controller aside from the LED display? It would be nice to see what we have turned on when sailing in the dark.

If I have any further questions I will be sure to let you know.

Regards,
Adam
