Heck, since 1982 I could count all the payware I bought on one hand, up untill last month that is. Now all my saved "just in case there is an FS11" hardware money is being thrown at payware like ORBX and REX, Corenado, Just Flight, etc


Hey don't support Carenado man - they are the ones being paid highly making the planes for M$ Flight and making a good killing from M$ by doing this. Also some of the other scenery guys are contracted to M$ for lots of $$$$. Not sure which ones making scenery but I know for sure Carenado is making props for MS Flight.


Man, where do people get this stuff...

Lets face it, most Universities teach students how to think and form their own opinions based on information obtained from multiple sources. As for any College/University openly allowing their students to use encyclopedias as their primary source of information, in my opinion, is unheard of and a non issue.

I would like to believe that's true. This article is one of many that seem to prove otherwise. No shame in copy and paste for Internet-age students

Believe it,

This article you provided is about students who practice the art of plagiarism or copying information from the internet or from wherever without credit given to the authors. Has nothing to do with the paragraph you are responding to. In most cases when a student is caught doing this, some corrective and sometime punitive action including expulsion is taken.

All about words it seems :o

When you install the Microsoft Sims they go in Microsoft Games folders on the system...so in that respect they can be called games, but this start to become hair splitting as call it whichever and you can support what ever justification you choose.  On the other hand the versions up until now have be FS (Flight Simulator) something where Flight drops the Simulator part of the title and does not have a number following the earlier offerring.


MS Flight doesn't sit comfortably in either

Could it not just sit on it's own between the Current Flight Simulator Board and The Graphics Gallery???

That way it is still up where it will be noticed yet not being seen to be classed as the replacement for FS.X by being in the 'Current' Folder

It's a bit like the tomato debate as to weather it is a vegetable or a fruit...it is a fruit by growth but used as a vegetable, so what is it??...well it's a Tomato and everyone just accepts it without getting involved in trying to categorise it.

Same here, it is neither but can be either...but it is Microsoft Flight and can be whatever you want it to be, but doesn't have to be anything.

I think it really needs to be thought of as 'Something else", maybe from small acorns mighty oaks will grow, but that remains to be seen.

I think this conversation is getting off topic, but I can't resist giving my 2 cents :)

In my degree (Bachelor of Law), secondary materials are rarely used formally, we would almost always reference primary materials like Cases and Legislation. With secondary material we only use peer reviewed materials.

However Wikipedia is used all the time to get a general overview of a particular subject area.

My conclusion - Use it in private but for goodness sake don't tell anyone that you do  ;D


Also plagiarising can be enough to be expelled from uni, or alternatively result in being refused admittance to the Bar in my case...

Seeing that there has been no activity in the Flight Forum for a few days & that the last post that had anything to do with Flight was a fortnight ago at least I think it would be worth moving if you wanted to Pete.
