Thoughts On The Trip Home

While driving down the North Tollway, heading south back home, my mind began to turn the day’s events over. I’d seen a lot, done a lot more, and been a lot closer to warbirds than I’d ever been in my life. I’d gotten to touch functional pieces of history, an experience that not many get to do. I considered three things:

First, flight simulations are not made with multi-million-dollar budgets unless you’re Microsoft. People should realize that small development houses like Shockwave work on limited capital and a shoestring budget, yet they are able to turn out some of the most sophisticated pieces of software on the computer. Why? They are dedicated enthusiasts. They genuinely love what they do, have a passion for it and are willing to pursue whatever ends they need to in order to get their product in the best condition they can. Money is the oil that keeps this machine running, and unless you’re turning out another Battlefield clone, there’s not much of it. This is why I buy flight sims whenever I see a new one.
