Hi!Nice to hear that they'll release it soon!By the way, does anyone know if their Munich airport will already include the soon to be finished terminal 2? I hope so, as EDDM will become a totaly different look and almost twice the capacity it has now.Toby

Hello,Airport 2002 is nearly gold. So not much long to wait. Official release dates are not given by Wilco, btw.About EDDM, it includes the new terminal completed (even if we are slightly ahead of schedule for this one ;-))All the best,Michael RenousWilco Publishinghttp://www.wilcopub.com

Hi,The avi in itself is ready for a while but we have decided to suspend its publication due to some criticism on unfinished texture.Whilst the A320 is a product that has been and still requiring an enourmous amount of work, opening -in our view- a new very promising technology, we prefer to wait and have a "nicer look of the product" and not demonstrate it at this stage.We believe that once it will be in the hands of the simmers it will reveal all its potential.At this stage, developers are focusing on the reliability of the aircraft systems and only when completed, will they focus on the design.We will have to wait for then (product release still expected within few weeks), before releasing the avi.Thanks for your interest,Michael RenousWilco Publishinghttp://www.wilcopub.com

Kudos to you guys for fixing those problems with the A320 that people noted from the preview shots rather than trying to push it out the door... [;)] I think it'll be really nice when it's done...

I have to agree, these two new Wilco products look very promising. I just hope this new technology they are talking about holds true in regards to framerates. I am very interested to compare the Simflyers scenery with Wilco's.

Eric,Obviously the frame issue is something we have looked carefully into.Choice is often between complexity and realism of scenery and acceptable frame rate.However with FSNAT you'll be able to add scenery, animate objects around your airport (aircraf, cars, gates, trucks...) and make script for them.It will depend on how far you will want to detail your airport and this is a matter of each person taste and interest.We should be releasing the manual online of ways of scripting of FSNAT very soon.All the best,Michael RenousWilco Publishinghttp://www.wilcopub.com

The A320 looks like its going to hit frames hard. How does it manage to operate when the 'VC' is the whole aircraft which you can actually walk around?I dont get it *:-*(Really can't wait to see the .avi)

Hello again,Well, let's give the first clue here... First of all, in no way there is magic, but just trying to make an appropriate use of resources.In order to see the cabin, you'll have to have the door of the cockpit open (just by cliking on the door, it will be animated and will slowly and simply open).Then you separate the resources for the VC and the cockpit...Obviously on how is everything active in the 3D cockpit and in the cabin, this is obviously far more complicated ;-)Hope it answers part of your question,Michael RenousWilco Publishinghttp://www.wilcopub.com

I went on www.simw.com, the date has been delayed to 30 Oct. It's good to see you guys are taking extra time to make the perfect product. You guys have decided to delay the video. We've got 3 weeks left till the release, so how about you update us with some screenshots ? I hope you guys are concentrating on realistic flight dynamics, systems, malfunctions, as well as eye candy. I am hoping for something even better than 767 PIC :-) it's alot to hope for but I m sure it can be done.Any screenshots of Airport 2002 ? I really looking foward to London Heathrow.
