GTXJackBauerMy gosh. It's about TIME even though I have the original on Steam and never played it. How many years has it been? 20+?
ty_ger07I thought Microsoft said, years ago, that they were abandoning the Microsoft Flight Simulator series.
flyinionGTXJackBauerMy gosh. It's about TIME even though I have the original on Steam and never played it. How many years has it been? 20+?The original is from the 80's :) Perhaps you're thinking of FSX (version 10) from the mid 2000's? It's been so long because MS shut down the flightsim group a year or two after that one came out.
fergusonllWas never into the Flight Sims, but if this turns out like that trailer, I just may get into it. Amazing looking graphics.

Some of them are really hardcore and hard to really have fun with if you don't know what you are doing. I was thinking about this though and after seeing how Forza has a good physics and ability to tinker around as much or as little as you want I feel they might be able to make a fun system that is also forgiving for those who just want to have fun and fly without worrying about crashing.
blackforcefsx cd version was the best if you knew how to set it up, the steam version was trash and was a easy slider all by itself lolyou can't even get 1/4 of the addons with the steam version.
Gold LeaderYeah well if you are planning on professional kits you can make it as expensive as you like really, like buying your own Boeing 737NG or B747-4xx Cockpit for example and connect that to your flight sim machine or machines.The Aviation Megastore here in NL Sells parts for these cool things:https://www.aviationmegastore.com/cat/cockpit-building-355.htmlTons of cockpit building materials thereThere also have thishttps://www.737-simulator.com/en/I been there last year, always a pleasure sniffing around there, here some pics from that day: Yet I do like how X-Plane has improved over the years, X-Plane 11.5 was the latest version even Multi Socket users can get the max out of it that is what I would love to get with FS2020 tbh,as SMP Support goes.But yea 1000+USD for add-ons isn't much, you can go over 40KUSD or even more it depends how far you'd want to take it I know a few that went over 40K EUR for their flightsim systems, some of these people are B747 pilots from my Boeing 747 Community as well, it' sa fantastic but expensive hobby if you want to have the most realistic simulation system that actually mimics the real thing, I also have a few members that bought Boeing 747-400 cockpits the entire head part of the aircraft and used these for their flightsim systems, seens some crazy stuff considering this subject.
GTXJackBauerHopefully the new game won't be a addon leach like the FSX one. $1000+ for addons? Really? How about giving those for free (like the old days) or bundling them at a reasonable price. I think the soon to be new CoD:MW is using the old platform of giving their added maps for free which has me interested.

FS addons have always been 3rd party developers both free and payware, and going back to maybe FS2000 or earlier. It's not required in any way and it was never from MS directly. Unlike MS Flight a couple years ago where everything including more sections of the base world were DLC from MS.
HoggleGTXJackBauerI was wondering how it would manage to store the data but streaming for the microsoft servers makes sense but it also makes me wonder about the long term support the game will have. For a flight sim if it's good people could be playing it for a long time.
