We're dedicated to discussion, technical help and advice and showing off the beauty of Flight Simulation. Upon entering, we hope you enjoy a close knit community that is always there to help you. There’s rules to comply, they’re simple: keep it clean, no profanities. Personal attacks, racial slurs, sexism and sexist remarks are not tolerated and anyone found posting these publicly or via PM will receive an instant permanent ban.
Keep your language clean. This site is for everyone. Every belief, age or other affiliation. Some people get offended by foul language and/or should not be exposed to it. We will delete any comments or posts containing vulgarity, and may message you of it. We have pretty bad outbreaks of the bad mouth syndrome from time to time and we delete those comments. If you get a warning and a chance to edit your comment/post - consider yourself lucky. If we see complete rudeness, consistent personal attacks or other downright childish or bullying tendencies, you have a certain chance of expulsion.
Constructive criticism of developers and products are allowed as long as the discussion is mature, well thought of and logical. We'll allow sensible and mature discussion of other simulation platforms but unsubstantiated claims or simple bashing is not allowed. We reserve the right to moderate any posts or comments if the discussion gets out of hand.
The language in the forums is English. (There are language-specific clubs - if you want to create one contact CaptainKitten)
- Swearing/Explicit language is forbidden, and the user will be kindly asked to edit the post or comment should the post/reply contain any expletives.

Commercial sites, Twitch or other live feeds, Virtual Airlines groups and/or other groups in general.

SHARING ORTHOIMAGERY FILES
As a general warning, once you share work where you have used ortho photos from sources that you have no agreement with, you are risking a heavy lawsuit from the provider. Orthoimagery are free for personal use only. Once you throw in a donation request or charge for your scenery - this goes double. The other problem with this is that you risk closing off this access to free personal usage of aerial photos for everyone.
