Exactly my point. Other people are "extending" or reverse-engineering a platform and improving it and are doing a better job at it than someone who has made their "engine" from the ground up. "Extensive sim development knowledge"? I wonder how you quantify that.

Far ahead where exactly? "A little instable" is an understatement!
