Happy Birthday OZx

20 posts in this topic

Born from a oddity and difference of opinion OZx originally provided a home for freeware designers for Australia to have a home to develop this until one day :butch:  (butch) said, hey, can you host a repaint for me? Sure mate, no worries was the answer and... the rest is history :) 

 

Thank you to all members who make OZx what it is to this day, salute to the fallen, Jackie, Hutchie may you smile upon us. 

Thank you for your support everyone, it has been one hell of a ride 

Everyone is a cog in the wheel that is OZx

Happy Birthday OZX. May you have many more. It is a certainty whilst the Batman remains behind the scenes (ever vigilant). The person to thank for this is Jay. Thanks you mate.

Cheers

Happy Birthday OzX!

Thank you JayKae for making this site what it is.  My flightsimming life has definitely gained so much since finding this site years ago.

Thanks also to all the members, past and present, for contributing so much to keep this site running and so full of such great freeware, knowledge, and interesting conversation.

Happy Birthday indeed!

Thank you Jay for a wonderful site.

At first I only posted my Australian themed repaints here, but I quickly felt at home...

Tell me, which birthday is it? and did it originate from the old Australian Virtual VFR site which hosted such luminaries as Ian Thatcher (Ian produced excellent scenery for Tasmania if I recall) and then become Vista OZ and then become OZx (non-commercial) and Orbx (commercial)??

Thank you all it is a pleasure having you all here and no bassman, OZx was part of Orbx Freeware Team until a little disagreement over a nudist beach led to a break up between the two, the freeware boys had nowhere to go so overnight I came up to do OZx, ran it by Mark and the rest is history, this is now 8 years ago lol

 

As a correction Vista Australis was never something else first, John and I met over at BEV and when he stopped working for BEV him and I joined forces, I had the server know how, he had the scenery know how and together (11 years ago) VOZ 0.99 came out December 24th, 2004 :)
