What happened?

Post by nathaninthailand » Mon Oct 31, 2016 6:29 am

I haven't played this game in about a year. I got a new computer, and felt the urge to take to the sky. I come to download the game, and I thought I got redirected to some scam site at first glance. All shiny, well organized, talk about multiplayer servers, new planes, vehicles, people? There are forums now?
When did all this happen?

Quite a few years ago. I didn't actually realize this place existed until 2004. I lurked more than post and went by different names back then but I eventually started posting. This is a pretty nice place if I do say so.

Since 2011 I think, every year YSFHQ Community keep growing. :)
As Monoceros said, this is one of the best communities around the web, with users from all the world. I love this community.

Hey nathaninthailand, welcome back! There has been some sort of forum associated with the YS community since about 2001 (the YSTK fansite days), especially the English-speaking community as well as our friends across the Pacific, the Japanese having a community entirely of their own but progressively communicating with us and letting us avail of their delightful offerings for YSFS, and there are a few other smaller but equally effective communities in Brazil, South Korea, etc.

There have been ups and downs (but mostly ups) along the way and much credit is to be given for keeping the community alive (Iceman, wingzfan99, Eric just to name a few; the current version of the forums has been implemented in large due to the efforts of wingzfan99 and Eric, but I'm sure there are some others behind the scenes) and of course the multitude of addon and from-scratch makers cannot be ignored either (all the way from the Skyline/Owl/Taskforce 58 days to now with decaff, Gunny, Patrick, Dan and Dave, Monoceros, NajmiCreative, AdityaB, etc. I know I'm forgetting several out there but long story short, the list has expanded quite a bit. There's also been a revival in the aerobatics and airshow spectrum (just had one with Coop's AirExpo - first annual and VNAF's AirFest, unfortunately his last one but quite the show as always).

You may be just discovering all of this so yes, quite a bit to take in all at once, but the game itself has undergone some big changes, and of course many new entrants have been coming up with quality addons and repaints. Take your time finding your way 'round the YSFHQ goody bag! Hope you like it here :)

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN DAL, I landed AT DAL. On the other hand, I did land in Dallas.

YSHQ: Come here from the redirection, stay for the confusion of all the bells and whistles. :lol:

Other things we have: Active military squads, a lot of virtual airlines, and a Facebook page.
