The end of the year is slowly creeping upon us. It seemed like just yesterday I was still enjoying cold beers on a sunny terrace, but the harsh and cold reality, mixed with the first snow of the year have reminded me that these days are long gone. Enfin, back to our simulators it is. Perhaps we can get a few more hours of sunlight in some warmer destinations in our sim – it’s not like there has been a lack of Mediterranean scenery releases lately.
For those of you wondering what this article is about, this is a new series of short editorials I want to publish once every month. Looking back at the past month from an FSElite perspective, but most of all, from my own. Please, do let me know what you think of this because your feedback is very welcome. I want to write what’s on my mind, but also what you want to hear about. Consider it a tiny peek in to the FSElite kitchen, if you will.
October has been a fantastic month for the flightsim community. The start of the month saw Flight Sim Show 2018 happening in Cosford. It was my first time to attend and to meet some of the FSElite team in person and it couldn’t have been better. Such a great atmosphere. It was really amazing to see so many people come together over, forgive me, such an incredibly nerdy hobby. I had an absolute blast meeting some of the developers behind my favourite sceneries. But also to meet and talk with some members of our own team for the first time. In an increasingly digital world, sometimes there just isn’t anything quite like meeting someone in real life and having a chat over a beer. Or two.
