[Reposted from another thread -- maybe it belongs here]

Three great Russian artists:

1. Anton Checkhov;
2. Pyotr Tchaikovsky;
3. Oleg Maddox (and Team)

Which one of these exposed himself to rabid/greedy critics in an open forum?

Thanks for trying, Oleg. It was a courageous experiment ... this forum.

Yup - hats off to Oleg, I think you're 'project' is unique, not only in the flight-simming world, but in the computer games world as well.

Can't even remember what I paid for the game - it's been so many cool and fun hours ago. Still I get upgrades/patches http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif - A couple of payfor addons is totally cool by me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thank you for all your extraordinary efforts. Your work is truly a masterpiece. Your dedication bespeaks your love of what you do. Don't let a mass of ingrates change that. Know that most of us truly appreciate your work. Your products are the best value for money of any I have ever played.

XyZspineZyX
10-07-2003, 01:45 AM
Just my 2 cents.

I think it is a shame that the amount of immaturity and ignorance displayed on this forum finally got to Oleg & crew, but I can certainly understand it. Someone could post "the sky is blue" and somehow it would turn into an argument that would eventually lead to insults/accusations directed at Oleg.

I just hope this doesn't effect the amount of content and care that 1C/Maddox put into their games. I'll glady pay for anything that they release because I know it will be of a quality that far surpasses anything else produced. They deserve it, especially after what they put up with here. Sadly, Oleg will now likely distance himself from the community so all of the whiners will have the exact opposite effect that they desired. Justice is served.

My two final points are:

1. Please consider your tone and content when posting, just look at what has happened.

2. Thank you to 1C/Maddox for renewing my interest in WWII aviation tenfold, and for creating the highest quality product of its kind.

Good idea to make a place for us butt-kissers and shameless droolers. Thanks Oleg, and you have a great eye for talent in that staff. I don't remember ever trusting a game developer to give the best that is possible for current hardware. You've been firm in not implementing things that would compromise playability, while still looking to continually add what is possible and innovative. Notice something about the complainers: they still buy your product, and most will admit its quality when hit up side the head. I will buy anything you produce. It's a no-brainer.

The amount of hours I've played Il2 and FB, together with interest in other things that have come off that, it's a real bargain.

Look forward to final free add on and the pay-for too.

In fact, I hope Oleg starts now to get a better return off his investment all round and ignoring abusive whiners should mean his quality of life is a little better, if nothing else.

Yer, totaly agree, Oleg this next coming up expansion i wouldnt care if you made everyone pay, ignore the whinners, Sure the game has bugs, but which doesnt? you fix and add what you want at your own time and you deside if you want money or not.

I agree,

Il-2 FB is just a great. I am keen airwar researcher and I use FB as study tool. I started to understand naturally to many things that can hardly be written in the books. You have to live it. And FB helps.

I am also impressed by management of FB development team. It must be real challenge to manage group of people working in different places and finally produce such complicated product like FB.

Thanks Oleg.

Of course he makes mistakes. There are no angel wings on any of us. But when someone who has done so much in the right direction states publicly that he has grown weary of giving to those who are unappreciative . . . well, this thread just a thank you from anyone that wants to say "I've enjoyed the hell out of your labor, Oleg and team!". The guy IS a human being with feelings. Just like you. And just like you, I'll bet a kind word from your FRIENDS is sometimes just what the doctor ordered.
