Not fair!

This is not fair!

I think the initial copy of FSUIPC for FS2004 should remain freeware.

We are not only going to pay for FSUIPC but also for all the updates of the software we have purchased from commercial developers.

They want to claim there loss on the consumer...

It's like drugs... first give it for free... then ask money when there is no turning back cause almost every decent add-on works through FSUIPC.

Da list:

Software using FSUIPC

Tyrolean Takeoff

If all you want to use it for is to run add-on applications, then it is free. PLEASE go and read the announcement again and maybe follow through some of the existing threads. I shouldn't need to repeat myself here. Please research your subject a little before posting!

I agree with kiki, FSUIPC should stay freeware.

Peter, You can charge extra for WideFS or choose a different module to make payware

WideFS is the only one I am always charging for. FSUIPC in its use purely as an interface to FS will be free to users -- please go and read something about it all before you criticise. I shouldn't have to keep repeating the same information

Pete

If more people had made meaningful donations it probably would have.

It's because of people like you who only want freebies without ever considering the effort (in both time and money) that goes into it that Pete had to decide to charge for it.

But then you're probably using a pirated version of FS as well because it should be free right?

Sorry guys, but I suggest you to stop the discussion about freeware/payware.

I fully understand the decision of Pete. Actually it is a good decision. Payware developers are making money by using something he developed, he deserves to get money for this!
