FS2006

No, still too early for any formal announcements. But there was a recruiting message for the devteam posted on a forum recently - it was on Avsims' front page, so its reasonable to deduce work is in hand! Allcott

are you sure - a whole week? I can exclusively reveal that fs2006 will have more eye candy and lower frame rates.

An announcement to this effect is expected on the 31st February! I have a contact inside Microsoft.Stelios

What's wrong with lower framerates? This been Microsoft's most consistent feature since Flight Simulators inception. RH

>nothing is wrong with eye candy.It's certainly the number one reason that I enjoy flight. And the closer a sim comes to duplicating the look of our planet, then all the better!L.Adamson

Rumours are that FS2006 will contain submarines. Also, and this again is a rumour, it seems FS2006 also contains F1 cars which can be driven on a circuit.Finally, but this is the Pro package, FS2006 features a licenced copy of Packman which can be played on the EADI of the included Fokker 777-A340.I'm realy looking forward to FS2006

MS ussually starts working on the next release before the actual version is even released. It also would be a bit late to start recruiting staff for FS2006 only now. This would indicate, that FS2006 would not be relased before 2007.Wolfgang

True, but imagine the framerates you'd get if you tried to run FS9 on that commodore 64. :DThat's the problem with the complaint. People running the previous version of the sim get upset when the new version (with its improved eye candy) doesn't run as well on the same system they were running the old version on. Of course it's a silly complaint. Personally, I find FS9 performs pretty much as well as 2002 ever did and looks better so in truth the criticism isn't all that valid anyway...

yes, but I heard you need to build them yourself using the realtime construction company simulation that's also built in.And the virtual FAA which will take away your right to fly if you violate a rule, causing FS to not start for an appropriate amount of time.

This is the funniest thread I've read here in awhile! :-lol Feb. 31st, and a kit to build your own bridges! Why not just release the SDK and we'll make our own FS?Seriously, after a year and a 1/2 of endless tweaking and battling CTDs and generally pulling my hair out, I've finally got FS9 stable and working really well. Can we now just enjoy FS9 for a little while? Can MS wait a little bit before releasing the next one? This way we can actually have a little peace and enjoy the cool new addons coming out before getting ulcers starting all over again fixing the next version of FS!Lee

Great entertainment, but I hope Tomas takes the comments in the spirit in which they are intended! :-) Allcott

ToMy Li?? Aren't you the same person that kept asking when the Level D sim would be released months before a release date was mentioned?Now that a release date is mentioned you've moved onto FS2006? Good grief! I stopped reading the Level D forum because of your insistant badgering of the developers. Please don't start that nonsense in this forum.

Valid questions, its spring now, and the 767 still isnt released. So i see no problem there. The developers themselves said autumn 2004, no wonder people gets ###### when you miss a release by 6 month.But it should be out tomorrow or maybe even tonight if we are lucky ;-) , so the whining and moaning wil soon end.OHN
