Should this Board be Moved?

Well it just occurred to me that this is listed under '[b]Current Flight Simulator Series

Good idea Pete I completely agree because your right, Flight isn't a sim.

A few people may disagree but it's a sound idea that I have been thinking about saying for a few days.

Also if this happens shouldn't Flight screenshots go in The Cage?

Ohhh boy, loaded question.
I don't think we've actually finnished debate on what SimV members actually consider it, though I'd say the leaning is strongly for game at this point.
That said, personnaly, I have no objection to where it is, but going with MS's own listing has a unit of measure makes the move unbiased, and completely fair.
Therefore I say move it.

It's not an opinion -- it's Microsoft who specifically call it 'not a simulator' - 'a game' That is VERY specific from the team.

That's what I'm saying.
I don't dissagree with you, but there are most certainly at least a few who currently argue that it is a sim, and will argue.
Going by MS's own listing takes away the argument.

Sounds like a poll-worthy question if I ever heard one!

Whatever it is and love it or hate it, it is what we have to work with and it is the latest flight game from MS.  Love it or not, this is what MSFS has become, so I say keep it here.  Don't put it above FSX, but leave it.  :P

IMO this is a sim, I use it in many the same ways as I use FS9 and FSX.

I start up Flight, start the plane using the included checklist, taxi, takeoff and fly to my destination using VFR, taxi to parking and shutdown using the checklist.

All without keeping score. How is that not a flight simulator?

Pete, I am a little disappointed in your bias, but it's your site, do with it what you wish.

cheers,
Joe

Where's the bias? I'm asking a question.

It's not an opinion to state that MS have very specifically asked this not to be categorized as a simulator. That have very specifically asked this to be classified as a 'game' .. & they are very specific about this.

The question here is, as I put it : Should it be in the same category on this forum as 'Flight Simulators' ...

No bias. A simple question.

NO! If it were up to me I'd move it.

I agree with Pete, it should be moved to "Computer Games and Software" - especially since even MS themselves have categorized as a game.

I agree with Pete


... agree? How did my question get translated into 'my opinion?'

Once again  .... I am asking for your opinion ...  :)

My Opinion: It's not a sim so it shouldn't be in Current Flight Simulator Series.

Also if it were moved down there would be less arguments & more posts asking for help because the people who argued wouldn't bother to scroll down & the only people that would scroll down would be people how needed help.

I think a few questions have gone unanswered because the answerers don't want to be branded "Haters".
