We’re now in December and the holiday season beckons (or has already started for some) and that means that I’ll be putting together a series of posts looking back at 2018 and looking forward to 2019 particularly as we near the end of the month. We’ve had a pretty exciting year for flight sims and I’ll be revisiting my predictions from late last year and early this year to see how things have panned out and what the disappointments and surprises were.
A year of updates on Stormbirds
The Stormbirds site has grown a bit over the last year and I’m seeing more people viewing and interacting with the blog than ever before.
I set out to create this mostly as a writing experiment to get better and quicker at putting out articles but its taken on a life of its own and that’s pretty exciting.
I’ve added features like the Community Q&A (of which I have several more in various stages that I’m excited to share with you folks when I can) and tried to capture as much news, events and other cool stuff going on around the flight sim world as I can. I’ve also talked a tiny bit about other titles peripheral to our experience as well as focusing in on DCS World and IL-2 in a big way. I haven’t posted many War Thunder updates nor have I talked about the flying experience from Battlefield V but I will probably talk a little bit about those as time allows.
As with any hobby (and this site is very much a hobby for me), I do this blog for my enjoyment first but I’m also the kind of person who wants to try and help others out and that means trying to provide the kinds of quality content when I can and opinion on issues where I think it may help.
Let me know your thoughts
This is where I ask for your thoughts. How has 2018 has been for you in your flight sim experience? What’s got you excited? What has you down (if anything)? What are you most looking forward to in 2019? I’ll be reading and interacting with your comments on this post and I’ll very much be keeping them in mind for follow up posts coming later this month.
The holiday season is always a busy one for me but I do have plenty of stuff to talk about before 2018 rolls to a close. There is also no doubt in my mind that the constellation of talented developers surrounding DCS World and Eagle Dynamics as well as the fine folks at 1C Game Studios will be keeping us on our toes right through the season.
