Sorry guys but here was literally NO POINT to the thread other than to declare the death of the sim and you mods approved it.
I certainly appreciate all the efforts in keeping EAW/UAW alive. Nicely done, and certainly under-appreciated.
As for myself, i have moved on to what I believe are better games, given better computers and far better graphics cards.
I still play UAW/EAW for fun, on occasion. It's necessary to play UAW/EAW on older, less capable computers nowadays; more modern computers have some problems, maybe not. I understand the effort of folks to make UAW/EAW viable with Win 10. I hope equally successful efforts concerning Win 11.
I play more advanced games, on a more modern platform, on a more regular basis. UAW/EAW/ is seldom selected by me. A fun, legacy game, with historical value, but not in the same class, either visually, or graphically, as with more modern games.
My sincere thanks to folks keeping EAW/UAW alive and "viable" even now. It's fun to look into the past, although the future is what we all will encounter, like it or not.
Reading comprehension is important.
RIBob states his appreciation of the efforts put into keeping EAW/UAW alive ( as in NOT DEAD ).
He opines it is nicely done and is under-appreciated, apparently by some others.
He states that he, himself, has moved on to what he believes are better games for the newer crop of computers & graphics cards.
He elaborates on his view, while indicating that he still plays UAW/EAW a small percentage of the time.
He expresses his thanks to "folks keeping EAW/UAW alive and "viable" even now".
That looks like a number of points to me, including that the sim is being kept alive ( as in NOT DEAD ).
There is nothing there for a moderator to object to.
Moderators are not here to be fact checkers. We are here to uphold SimHQ rules, and in the case of this sub-forum... attempt to keep a lid on the childish quarrels.
Then your post comes along:
If we're gonna go Shakespearean then here's a couple of my favs -
"....it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."
"Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind."
Which was clearly a shot, and likely to stir up a quarrel.
RIBob's post wasn't the problem here. Yours, on the other hand, was.
