View Full Version : Bearcat, please read this!

I wanted to comment your post "Pay attention cause Im only saying it once", but because it was technically impossibile, I wanted to write it as a new topic.

I don´t know what has happened "last night"..as you said, and haven´t either read much of the posts. But I was sad to read that Oleg has been insulted etc.

May I ask you, all of you who are working for Oleg and this IL-2,ACE,PF -production, not to listen to those, who are immature...because they are immature. And in case there have been intentional insults from mature people, to Oleg , his team members or their product, please do not get provoked. If anybody on earth would like to hurt you and maybe stop you, they can only be your competitors in business and in this case, as they would be disturbing our (we gamers) pleasure, they would be our enemies as well.

I have never seen as fair and good business and relationship between the seller and the buyer as what we all have seen here with Oleg&team and the gamers. This is new style, relaxed and nice business where seller and the buyers talk to each others and it has been very comfortable, nice and enjoyable for all the time. It has been so enjoyable, that thousands of people feel Oleg and his team being their friends. Thousands of people have had good time in seeing all those WWII aeroplanes on their screen, those same aeroplanes they used to build and play with as children. And now those people - including me - are enjoying the opportunity to play the same games again... this time in a form of a computer simulator.

We have got tens and tens of aeroplanes. I have more WWII aeroplanes "in my computer" than what I ever dreamed to posses as a child (LOL). What was the price we had to pay? Practically speaken not much. For younger ones the price is obviously more important than what it would be for us, the adults. We have got much and paid a very, very low price for this. There is something in Oleg´s way to do things what everybody in business should do. He is a straight and fair man of whom one gets the impression that he (Oleg) means what he says. And he informs us about the things, - if he has time to do that, which means in other words, that he also speaks to us.

I HOPE THAT YOU, OLEG & TEAM, DO NOT GET TIRED ON US! Instead of that, I hope that you would enjoy working with your product, the best sim ever, and keep discussing with us. Thousands of people like me have learned from you and your forums lot of details conscerning piloting, aerodynamics, engineering, engines etc, etc,etc. Thousands and thousands of people have enjoyed piloting the aeroplanes which you have created. The thousands workinghours you have invested to your production have put out millions hours of combat piloting offline and online.

Let me propose a toast to Oleg&team and this community

Dear Oleg & team! Do not get provoked by your competitors, if they are trying to attack you. I don´t know if they will, but I know, that those would be the only motivated men to do such a thing. Other´s insults are not worth listening.

Im just a moderator here... I have nothing to do directly with Oleg and 1C other than to try to keep things straight here with my fellow volunteers. I feel the same way you do though. If I had the same support in everythuing that I purchase that I do from this product I would be one happy consumer. And yes.. for me this sim is a dream come true. I had a model of a P-51 at a time when it seemed gigantic in my hand..... in fact I couldnt hold it well with one hand for a while. Most of the people here can appreciate the hard work that Oleg and crew put into this thing but the noisy few make it precarious for us all. I appreciate your comments as I am sure most of us do and I think Oleg would as well if he were to read it.

Back then there were no Tuskegee models... only on the desks and in the memories of the men who either flew them, worked on them or were saved by them. We take a lot for granted today. I was 5 in 1960... a very different world.... and there was no such thing as paintball either. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

My first model was a P40 Warhawk. It was a Monogram 1/78th scale given to me by the father of the kid in the hospital bed next to me. He thought I was bored and would be old enough to build it at 6 years old.

It started my facination of WW2 era modeling and R/C flying.

A topic on the forum a while back ago was "WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST FLIGHT SIM?"

Mine was a balsa (P40 of course) model and string.

From there it went to control line (another P40) to RC. (a Spitfire)

So now I fly flight sims. IL2 captures the fantasy and facination I had as a kid twirling around divebombing GI JOE and army men with that P40 on a string.

It has taught me that the eastern front was A LOT more than a running gag in Hogans Heros.

And with that comes an appreciation for service men of ALL nations.

I can live vicariously the scariest moments of some heroes life in the comfort of my home.
(And I'll tell you when you dont concentrate and loose your situational awareness nothing will scare you more than having the sound of bullits rip into your canopy or fusalge.


But mostly I have come to appreciate pride in work. Something as meaningless as a flight sim gives happiness to many and the QUEST to continually improve and support this sim by a man I've never met is humbling AND inspiring for my OWN work.

Yeah, I know I'm a sappy kind of guy.

As an aside.... I have a video production company. Nostly events and weddings. The Groom on Saturdays wedding said he had folks from out of the country. RUSSIA.
Well, it's later in the night and I notice the groom talking to a man with a THICK RUSSIAN accent who looked EXACTLY like Oleg Maddox. I had to ask his name. It wasn't him but, Oleg, you have a twin out there. LOL

I agree with the original post. It's hard to discern which posts are legitimate "negative customer feedback" and which are slanted with ulterior motives. If only we could see through the virtual walls they hide behind. But then what can do but send our own messages of encouragement to balance it out a little.

Oleg, your health is more important than this flight sim. Many of us know that it's a labor of love for you but don't let it tear you down.
