Why are you guys sending me this?
I have already expressed the way I feel about this new norm of constantly spending money to keep buying new products to keep up with the trends.
I have expressed myself about the extortion like tactics the gaming industry uses.
I don't need to know about how N3V conducts their business, or how much money is involved in their business.
What I do know is I will not be buying any gaming software from any company that is only going to last a few years. In fact, when I bought my TRS2012 from N3V, it was not being supported anymore, so you can talk until you're blue in the face about how change is good, but I come from an era where people would build things to last, so chasing this hotdog dangling on a stick in front of me is not my thing.
It's not my fault that N3V decided to make a bunch of different puzzles (softwares) to put together, then put all those pieces in one box, and leave it up to the customer to sort all the pieces back out in order to have fun.
"Nothing last forever"....great sales pitch there. Where's the one that says "Buy our product, even though we don't support it anymore."?
All I see is a small group of people here who are trying to create routes, locomotives, and other things to sell for profit, and there is nothing wrong with that, but if you can't do things to make your patrons happy and want to come back, then who's fault is it if no one stays on to buy your products?
There are many people who want to play games, yet they are clueless to how they work. The point is to enjoy the game. When I played a pinball machine back in the day, I wasn't thinking about how it all worked, I was enjoying the sounds and flashes, smacking the ball, picking up bonuses....I was having fun. Playing pool hasn't changed, same tables, balls, some new cue technology, yet people still enjoy playing it every day. Horseshoes, volleyball, the list goes on....but you see, things don't always have to change in order to enjoy something.
If everyone involved in this game chooses to make it complicated to beginners, that the beginner finds it too frustrating to play or create because of constant upgrading or asset changing, so they stop playing, then those are the seeds you choose to sow.
"Nothing lasts forever, especially for FREE" I'm pretty sure I paid money to N3V for my TRS2012. Good thing you don't sell cars.
So please stop sending me stuff. I already know what I need to know on this.
