I ha just realized something, there is a lot of people who ask planes for free…
I know there is some people who have under 14-15 years old, and they couldn’t pay a plane…
Or parents didn’t agree… We all know this situation one day of our life.
But we have to look a little from another position. We are actually in the position of = “customer”
But if we took a plane (LoL) and we fly directly to the devloppers, yes the developers…
First look on Matt’s Instagram profile :
He wrote : “Coding a flight simulator for a living”
What’s the meaning ?
It mean that they live with the money that he earn by his flight simulator.
But how did he earn this money ?
By us ! But how ?
If we speak only about Live subscription not about other planes… (I know they earn money from other sides, as Planes or year subscription…)
We are actually 10’000 members on the community, if each user have one subscription (of a month) by year = 5$, devs are going to earn on one year :
It’s too much !!!
No, it’s sadly not too much because on a year, there is 12 month.
So, 50’000/12 = 4166.6$
4166$ by month !!!
They don’t have 4166$ on their pockets, no ! They have some invoices…
They have to pay :
- Apple (99$ by year)
- Discourse (This community isn’t free…)
- Servers (When we play lives, we play online)
- Android (~25$)
- Website domain (A website with his own domain isn’t free)
- The team Yeahhh IF (=Infinite Flight) There isn’t only Matt, there is Matt and their collegues…
[I don’t know how it’s organized, and I don’t have to know]
And they have a life, they need to pay taxes, their houses and food and drinks…!!!
So, did you thing that finally they have a lot of money, did you thing that they earn as FSX or Flight Gear ?
~ Personally I think not…
We need to be comprehensive and to understand why they couldn’t give all planes for free…
I’m pretty sure that if they can, IF could be free at 100% !
Thank you for your time, and before asking something, think !
I don’t want to put a bad atmosphere or to criticize people, I just need that people understand why…
Sorry for my horrible English, and hope that this topic are going to please you ;-)
