Review this edition of the SPW here


Hello!

The 50th edition of the SimplePlanes Weekly is here at last! That means I’ve written about nearly a years worth of material from SimplePlanes.com. I’ll showcase some interesting highlights from past editions later, but first let’s jump into the news.

SimplePlanes News:

  • Blue0Bull is starting a new chapter in his life by graduating from college and eventually enlisting in the Air Force. He credits SimplePlanes for inspiring him to pursue a life in aviation, as it has many other users. A huge congratulations and goodbye to Blue. Keep flying.

  • Modmaker MOPCKOEDNISHE is also leaving until 2021. His account will remain up as will all of his uploaded mods. Another goodbye and best wishes to MOPCKOEDNISHE!

  • Mod is no longer a moderator on SimplePlanes.com, having only wished to moderate SimplRockets2.com, where he is a still a moderator. Speaking of SR2 mods, whatever happened to [

  • Jundroo has become entangled in a massive conspiracy to prove that the Earth is flat, even though it’s ridiculous to believe the earth is anything but a decahedron.

Teaser of the Week:


We’ve obviously reached peak human evolution.

Meme of the Week:

Roleplay be like by Chancey21

It’s not exactly a meme, but it’s darn relatable.

The SimplePlanes Weekly Retrospective:

Nearly two years ago, I made a satire post mocking the website drama that was occurring at the time. As the post says, I was bored of all the stuff that was happening and thought a Drama Alert style thing would be funny. The comments that followed sparked the beginning of the SPW. WaffleCakes left the first ever SPW comment:

“lol”

shipster then suggested I make it a regular thing. We went back and forth, and then I settled on the name:

“The SimplePlanes Weekly”

After a dispute about what constitutes a curse word (seriously?), the SPW began to be produced on, you guess it, a weekly basis. The first dozen or so posts were still of a satirical nature, but around issue 12 I actually started being serious about this thing. 26 featured the first use of “SPW” as an abbreviation, and also introduced a rating poll for the first time. Squirrel then took over an edition, which still remains my favorite issue to date.

During my inactivity there was a good 6-7 months with no Weekly, but then this June it returned with a refocus towards aircraft reviews. I wasn’t able to keep this up, but I started to introduce more and more features. Strikefighter04 helped out with issue 38, and recently Jim1the1Squid has been writing special articles for me.

With all this having been said, I’m going to take a bit of a hiatus from writing the Weekly; maybe a month or so just so I can have more time for my real life. I genuinely enjoy making these stupid little things, and as long as people like them as well I’ll keep doing so.

Thanks for reading, mates.

    It was a weekly thing, for a really long time. But then I got bored of the game and so I quit. They were very fun to make though.
    You can see almost all of them here. It’s cool for me to go back and see what was happening all those years ago.

    These are actually pretty cool! I'd like to see more of them, even if it becomes a monthly thing.

    @Awsomur ah, well, that's unfortunate. Drama was one of the key reasons I decided to discontinue SimplePlanes. I certainly do hope you return nonetheless.

    There’s always a chance, but I don’t really enjoy playing the game anymore so probably not anytime soon.
    Plus the drama with a certain former-user made me loose motivation.

    @Awsomur might I ask if you're planning to ever become an active user in the SimplePlanes community again?

    You and Gameboi can make your own thing if you want. I’m done with the SPW and SimplePlanes in general. Just don’t use the SPW name or anything.

    Hey @Awsomur could we posibly make an upvote subscription SP writers pack? Im thinkin it would have my SP interview, you would have your spw, and gamboi would would have his simple memes (i havent asked him yet tho) and post them on an unlisted plane ( mabey randomusername would make us a simpleplanes art logo to be the plane. We should also ask a mod if its ok.

    Ok. Writing on the SPW isn’t exactly the best practice, and I won’t be starting up again until January. But when I do begin again you can help if you like.

    Thats a really good idea for practicing. I haven’t been doing the SPW for awhile, but I’ll probably start again come January. I’ve found working with others on the SPW to be challenging, but you seem to be serious about it so I’ll accept your offer. When might I ask is your TOEFL exam?

    Yeah it’s a pretty funny/percussive situation, but you’re sound kinda mean about it.
