Gravity is the number one cause of plane crashes.
The obvious solution is to make gravity illegal.
Congress however, keeps stalling the vote on the bill.
I am wary of taking my next flight untill they do.

Just sayin.... :D :P

And that brings us full-circle. Well done gents... you're excused. ;D

"Sounds like you are not aware that the state of Alaska is in the works and there will be more after that."

I know they are releasing Alaska but how are we expected to get there? Land somewhere in Hawaii catch a ferry to Anchorage and take off again? NOT!

For the emails:

I also emailed some specific questions and some of those were picked up in their replies. It was stated several times that this game would appeal to novices and experienced flyers. This i consider was misleading. there is simply too much missing for the game to really appeal to the experienced simmer.

If cusance has e-mails from Microsoft regarding what Flight would and/or would not be, and wants to forward them to me, I will be happy to provide an e-mail address.


wow, lets be clear about this. I havent said anywhere that I had direct emails from Microsoft. the replies I mention were in their FAQ they were however specific to issues raised in emails. (the only direct email I had was from Pat Cook saying, sorry I am out of the office at the moment). They ask for feedback and then they respond (or not) in the FAQ.  What happened was that I send them a number of questions specifically aimed at asking if all the efforts that had been put into FSX by people over the years would be lost and thus be rendered useless nd if that happened they would not find a happy welcome from experienced simmers. The next thing was that in their FAQ a message appeared more or less quoting the issues raised in my emails (and doubtless others)  and assuring us that the experienced simmer would be taken care of. These assurances were specifically in response to questions received, or so they said. Issues raised with them, I think is how they put it. regretfully they seem to have removed all that stuff  but it was quite clear that they were reacting to specific issues which probably others had also asked about. I still hold that their assurances in their FAQ after that were in my opinion misleading. The comments were full of what was going to be provided which seemed to promise a lot,  more than was actually delivered. some may call this marketing.

There is no such a thing as overkill. Only unworthy targets.
