Hi Tony :)

I suppose it depends on the setup. I doubt very much that making FS models would ever pay the rent as a fulltime job.. more something to take up ALL of your time not at the 'real' job as a supplimentary income. Some firms work it that the model maker takes a percentage.. others, you are on the payroll and get a salary. Ideally, the organisation you 'Produce' for should supply as much info for the project as is possible but I doubt that is ever enough. As a one man show.. you have complete control but no support.

I doubt if there's an ideal solution really as each producers situation is different as are each employers rules of engagement :)

Wouldn't be for me but I'm no good anyway having neither the time nor talent :lol:

To my knowlege, Dan Dunn from AS is the only full time FS developer who is an employee in the world, but I stand to be corrected. Pretty much everyone else owns thier development company or works as a freelance on a pecentage of sales basis.

I have yet to see a full FSX (SP2) beta myself,but I have seen some screenshots :thumbsup: . Hopefully the old 95% complete FS9 model might see the light of day as freeware one day.

Locked as it's another flame war trigger.

I don't need to explain what i am doing to anyone and the answer to this question has been explained more than once before.

Can't see why it might be a flame war trigger mate.. especially between Skysim and Alpha so if it's gonna be locked.. it might as well be deleted :dunno:

Simple questions with simple answers.. nowt deep and meaningful (not for us on the outside anyway) ;-)
