Will users have the option to use FSUIPC as the interface in FSX, rather than SimConnect? It still appears FSUIPC has a far superior handle on the FSX wind anomalies.What are the improvements over AS6 when running FS9?RegardsBob ScottColonel, USAF (ret)ATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VColorado Springs, CO

Hi Bob,1. No, with FSX the interface is SimConnect.2. There is a beautiful comparison chart at the new web site!Thanks,

Very exciting! I look forward to it coming out, especially for FS9. The PIREP feature looks interesting too, if I understand it correctly.

Hello. I run FS9 and I had a couple questions. Do I understand correctly that AS6.5 has a graphics package, yet the new ASA does not have one, you must also purchase XGraphics? Also, will there be a price drop on AS6.5 once the new ASA is released?Thank you.

Hi, you don't need XGraphics, simply use them from AS 6.5 or Flight Environment. As far as I know there will be upgrade paths available for AS 6.5Jan-Paul

Hi,Correct, ASA is going to be a weather engine only. For FS04 you can use the texture package that is a part of ASv6.5. For FSX, there is X Graphics and other texture programs available. This discount will be for ASV6.5 owners who wish to purchase ASA. I really can't say if ASv6.5 will have a price drop. Also remember that X Graphics will not work with FS04.Thanks!
