Recently I read that Microsoft has a person or two on payroll reading forums like this for resreach and development. So I figured I would list those things that I would like to see.I think we have drove home the idea that the core market demands an improvment in:1) Weather2) Aircraft modelingand 3) Air Traffic ControlWhat I would also like to see would be1) They use of Pilot Controlled Lighting2) AI Traffic that flys the pattern at both controlled and uncontrolled fields.3) more system failures like tire wear, low oil, etc and allow developers like FSMaintance to have have more control of using this features.4) More lessons. Like Commercial Manuvers i.e. Lazy 8's, Chandelles.5) More ground vechicles like follow me trucks and fuel trucks that allow you to order up fuel or at least when you add fuel it doesnt just appear when you push ok but get a truck that shows up for about 10 sec.I'm going to keep the list short but whatever we see new sure hope the first 3 get addressed.Kilstorm

There is one other thing that would be nice and that is terminal assignments. Since AFCAD allows us to add gates it would be nice to add terminal assigments to AI. Instead of assigning individual gates to AI just allow terminals. When updating AFCAD allow for parking or gates to also have terminal positioning. That way we could have full control of sending AI traffic where we want and not have to get so detailed about each plane. Example would be to send all Delta planes to a certain terminal using real life info that way they are cleared to taxi to an area and not a gate allow for not so many conflicts. Also having Cargo and General Terminals. By allow AFCAD to assign terminal to newly added gates you could also send ac to the right free parking spots that are not near a terminal.Kil~

That could be as simple as implementing a standard airline code that all aircraft would have to adhere to, and adding a field in each gate to match that airline code.Therefore, only aircraft designated "UAL" can park in gates designated for "UAL". This way, scenery designers can just make each gate at the United Airlines terminal at a given airport designated to "UAL", all the gates at the American terminal designated "AAL", etc.....Of course, there'd have to be a certain number of full gates available for miscellaneous/unknown airliners...... GA parking would also probably be designated in this manner to some degree but would probably mostly be general everything-goes....And yes, we definitely need seperate cargo terminals, military parking spots, etc..... Rather obnoxious when I'm flying the Cargo 747 and being directed to park at a passenger gate.....

Honestly I would be happy if they just listened to the 3rd party air file developers and made chages to the way fs2k4 handles flight models. I couldn't even understand what is needed, but I know that some others do and need changes in order to make more realistic flight models. Fix the flight models and allow 3rd party aircraft to behave even better.

I doubt that they take anything seriously that has the word "demand" in it....

its more of a "supply and demand" kinda of thing than a "do it or else" kinda of demand.
