I look at "Flight", etc, on my hard drive, and I look at the mountain of computer game CD's, Floppy Disks, 1/4" tapes, Microdrives, Cartridges, etc, in crates, dotted all around my house since the 1970's, and I tell myself; its just another bleedin' computer game, like all the others!... ;D...!

...none of them are "Real"...Its all in the mind of the beholder...trust me!.... ;D...!

Paul...Apple 2E + Sinclair Spectrum 48 + Commodore C64 + Amstrad CPC 464 + Amiga 1200, etc... ;D...!

...Boy's Toys!... ;D..!

...and you know all this because you work at Microsoft?

You keep saying that but you don't need to work for MS to see something obvious or read something they posted...

Complainers will outnumber supporters 10 to 1, it's always that way.


Pessimistic at best, convenient, often uttered by those whose game is getting the bashing, and even true in many cases, but by far and away not always that way.

...and you know all this because you work at Microsoft?

Your statement is just as plausible as me saying "Microsoft upper management was really disappointed with the direction ACES was taking Flight Simulator so they made the hard decision to scrap the Flight Simulator series, bring in a new team and start completely from scratch."

The only value of the Avsim poll is it gives us a snapshot of the opinions of the people who bothered to take the poll.

cheers,
Joe

First off I am not too thrilled about being called a troll simply because I do not agree with you, but as they say stick and stones, rubber and glue.

I have never been one to say Flight will become FS11, in fact I have acknowledged just the opposite.

I do believe if there ever is a FS11 it will grow out of the core of Flight and not FSX, or at least I hope so.

You state that FS11 "is exactly what MS does not want to do" and I don't know how you can state Microsoft's future plans when even they won't.

A quote from the interview you linked to (which I had already read)...

"As to where we are taking Flight, the answer is that I can

It's great to see some intelligent debate about all this.

VERY welcome .... & much as I'd like to throw in my 2c I won't right now  .....

Differing viewpoints & freedom of expression is what a 'free world' is all about.


Keep up the great work guys!  8-)

That's why I get the troll feeling, but hold on that for a second...
Here's the reason: You take one vauge PR qoute to throw back, and ignore the whole rest of the article that says exactly why your not getting the next FS from flight, probably not at all in fact, what the plans are instead, and even goes so far has to explain that most such desires the simmers express are in such a minority in relation to the plan as to be

You know, I have read and re-read these sencences and I still dont understand. Seems to me that you contradict yourself.
however lets look at this sensibly for a minute. MS want to continue 'the journey' with Flight. This means ongoing development. now lets see, what kind of development can they roll out over a number of years and still have Flight NOT morph into a kind of FS11?
Oh and to be precise, with FS11, I mean to indicate all the features we now have in FSX but developed to a much higher standard.
(Personally my ideal would be a mix of Outerra scenery engine and FSX. but hey, we can all dream.) But that Flight will eventually become much more of a Sim would seem to me to be inevitable. By the way as a matter of genuine interest, what is it about Flight that you find so good? maybe I missed something.
