• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

I wonder about the practicality of someone archiving Jim's posts into a separate read only forum? Just to keep them in one, easy to search location.
This is very sad news. With his stupendous know how Jim was a mainstay for everybody using ADE.

Have a pleasant flight, Jim!
A shocker. Jim was so instrumental in helping me when I was working on 9Dragons Kai Tak back in the day. I talked with him weekly back then. His depth knowledge of MSFS made be think he had to be a former employee of Aces. He is one of the greats who worked behind the scenes helping us develop.

Tip-of-the-wing my friend,

And I still miss his replying to a multitude of problems still showing up that we do not really know how to solve as we lack his knowledge of, insight in and undoubtedly years of hard work delving into these AI matters.
Unfortunately, I could not find any archived posts of Jim in a separate read only forum like n4gix suggested:(. But Bill was definitely right in suggesting this!
