FS06???

Recommended Posts

Guest twsimfan

At the AVSIM Conference last September the MS guys were making it sound as if we would be seeing some preliminary screens & specs soon on the next version of FS... FS06 I assume. Has anyone seen anything about it?I get a little nervous when I hear that TS2 has been cancelled.

Not just that, but you can't use the search function? This has been discussed to death :(

You are a moderator on Avsim (Avsim is getting big - hard to keep track who is who ;-) )? So why do you repeat the same question that has been raised here countless of times? Use the search button, read all the stuff on the subject, add your own speculations, pour yourself cold glass of beer and relax.

Ricardo,That is hard news. I can't say that it makes sense to me but there you go. I've been using FS since A2-FS1 back in '80 and while I love the series I'm not going to a console to stay with it... too restricting. :(Thanks for a straight answer. :)

Ricardo, Where did you get that "gem" of information? Until I see something directly from Microsoft, which I have not yet, I would say that this is more disinformation that some in the community love to spread. I can not believe that so many people can spread so much BS and not be held to account for it since so many take it so seriously. If this was true I think that the proverbial "stuff" would have hit the fan in these forums, since it has not you can feel pretty sure that it is not true. If I am wrong and you have proof please point me in the right direction.Thanks,Philip OlsonI'm the luckiest man in the world, my girl friend has a yoke and rudder pedals!

Greetings!My reliable source at MicroSoft has recently informed me that FS10, AKA FS2006, AKA FSBTB (Flight Simulator Back To Basics) will be produced as a board game. Tiny wooden aircraft models, beautifully painted with various liveries, will be shoved by the player over a large first quality plywood board, upon which parts of the earth's surface are printed in full color! Add-ons will soon be made available in the shape of little hills and mountains in full 3D, to be placed by the player in the right geographical spots. A small set of watercolors and brushes will be supplied with FS10's basic package, for those meticulous players who want to improve the default landclass and scenery.I'll try to find out more for y'all!Jaap Verduijn.

I've been waiting for this. Just think, you can extend your world just by getting a larger sheet of plywood. Lawzy me, the discussions we can get into. :D

My guess is an announcement sometime between mid Feb and mid March.There will be 3 in productsFS10 - The Tweakers Edition - The screen will be consist of nothing but a framrate counter. Users will have the ability to tweak their systems until they achieve the highest framrate.FS10 - The Flight Model Edition - This will consist entirely of a cockpit view with no additional sceneryFS10 - The Scenery Edition - This will consist of nothing but scenery. No aircraft will be included.FS10 - Default Edition - This will be for those who don't need any of the others.:-lol :-lol Victor

At about the time the FS9.5 patch was released, the MS folks confirmed that they were still committed to the flight simulation business (whatever that meant) and that the next version would include a total revamping (in other words) of their aircraft in FS. I am not making this up. Does anyone else remember that? Just look up the post that included news about the patch way back when and it included the statement about the revamping of the aircraft. RH
