Irish Flight Sim Design – the end

Well…   it was fun while it lasted.

For the last two years my life has been hectic!   Moving home, new company offices, general life stuff.    During that time, one thing has become clear.   Unless I figure out a way to clone myself, something has to give.

Unfortunately, the thing that had to give was Irish Flight Sim Design.

So, the domain expired last week, and the hosting package is gone.   People did not seem to want to pick up the reigns and take control of the site, scenery and cost associated so I had to let it go….     Graham and I are both simply too busy right now.

Now, that said, I am going to renew the domain…   so if there are serious offers and someone wants to take over, it is yours.

Also! – and this is important – If someone is really serious about finishing off EINN (Shannon) airport, and they approach myself or Graham with a proper plan, we may be convinced to let you have our source code / work done so far….   no promises, I am just putting the thought out there for others to dwell on.

Maybe I can just give the source to my friends over on the ACES team and it could make it to FS(Next)….    who knows!  (Hal, that is directed at you!)

    Nick,

    I would gladly take IFSD to ensure the survival of such a rich resource. I am very saddened to see it go and am very passionate about flight simming as you probably know.

    Would you consider letting me take the reins?

    I have over 700 hours of flying on Vatsim and have made many flight sim videos.

    If you wish I can give you a ring. If you drop me an email at mythicalireland(AT)eircom(DOT)net we could exchange phone numbers. Would love to discuss this further.

    Hi Guys its a crying shame that the scenery building has come to an end. However if hosting is an issue to anybody who takes over, I can give you some space on the VA’s site no questions asked no payment needed. contact details of myself are on the site.
    On behalf of the Aer Lingus va members may I say thanks for making our flights home more realistic and appealing hope you manage to find someone soon.
