Just a heads-up to those who may have tried and failed to log in: I had to sign up to the Aerosoft Forum, my existing username and password were for Sales only, but signing up took less than 2 minutes.

Personally, I don't see the point in voting.  I would have to have hope beyond belief to think that FS2004 will be considered in any future development projects.  I think the only developer still in the running is UK2000.

Maybe we won't see anything from Aerosoft anytime soon but other developers still produce FS9 airports.  Besides UK2000, recently we got Leige from BDO Aviation; Salzburg and St. Petersburg from Digital Designs; Chisinau from Drzewiecki Design; Kharkiv from Babich design; and Kuala Lumpur not that long ago from A_A Sceneries, which said recently in a FSDeveloper forum that the plan is to do Beijing for FS9. Not too bad for a sim that is supposedly dead in the water.  No doubt some of the big name developers are done with FS9.  Flytampa didn't respond (as far as I know) to the unofficial FS9 begging forum for its Sydney airport even with 10,000 views, which is probably a record for any of its forum subject threads.  Flytampa is not likely to be swayed by any poll, but who knows, maybe some the developers I noted and maybe others might see this poll.  Why not show support for our favourite sim.  It can't hurt to vote.

I do agree that it is highly un-likely Aerosoft will make anything for FS9 again, but if that is the case then why do they ask these type of questions if they have no intention to develop for FS9?

Don't forget Tropicalsim and ImagineSim. They still make scenery for FS9.

Unfortunately, ImagineSim have recently stated on their facebook that they will no longer be doing FS9 sceneries.

Hi,

 

I'm well aware that many companies have stopped developing for FS9. And that they probably won't be convinced by this poll. However, I thought that it wouldn't be wrong to get a little more realistic picture, as 40% X-Plane and 50% P3D (how it was when I looked there first) seemed to be "slightly distorted".

Well that sucks. I was looking foward to their updated Changi scenery. It was supposed to include the military parking in the new version.

It's only a few hundred votes.  The poll needs has to collect at least 2000 to be statistically significant.

Thanks for letting us know, Harald; added my 2 cents to the tally.  FS9 of course.

It would be a bonus to see anything new but I've got enough already to keep me satisfied for at least another decade! Not even the slightest interest in moving to any of the other offerings out there.

I just bought three new FS9 sceneries today.  :Party:

 

I just bought new scenery today also (I only bought two though). I bought the new Salzburg scenery and the new Liege scenery.

This is what was said on the Facebook site:  "Sales returns for the our last KATL 2016 FS2004 version have proved to be just too low over the past six months to make another FS9 product viable."  I wonder why this airport was picked to test the FS9 market because it is a product that has had many iterations?  I bought it on the promise of better performance but it seems a lot FS9ers decided not to invest more money in that scenery.  Maybe a new airport would have been a better benchmark?

 

I wonder if there is still hope for a  FS9 version of Drzewiecki Design's Baku UBBB airport?

Aerosoft just released the German Airports Team version 2 of Frankfurt.  A FS9 version was, at least, not point blank ruled out as a possibility: " The new edition of Germany's largest airport will be published according to Aerosoft for FSX and Prepar3D, however a FS9 version is still uncertain."  Does anyone know if a decision was made by GAP on a FS9 version 2 of this airport?
