Today LH Simulations has informed us that they will no longer be able to offer us freeware products for the following reasons citing, long work hours, increased costs, products they need to purchase for sceneries etc. WHAT?? That's outrageous!!
Given the extremely realistic high quality of LH sceneries, I am surprised the last 2 projects were released for free. They honestly don't have to justify to the community why they need to charge for their work. They have the right to charge for the hard effort that goes into the quality of their work. The work is very good and I'm happy to pay for it. I do appreciate their explanation but if the reason was simply to make money, I would have been fine with that. I am happly looking forward to PAYING for future LH products so long as they continue to look as good as they do. Besides, there are payware developers out there charging money for projects that look worse than iPhone games.

Keep up the very good work LH! We are looking forward to Budapest!
