In this day and age that is a bit limiting and often is the deciding factor if I decided to buy a product for FS9. As an earlier post mentioned you could host it for download for much less than burning, printing, & shipping cost. That kind of bandwidth is dirt-cheap when compared to the other option and you can simply build it into the product price. As for size

I am currently programming a voiceset editor that is compatible with Flight Deck Companion, FS Passengers, FS2Crew and Radar Contact v4 (when it is being released), so that everyone can easily create their own voiceset.I'll feature a descriptive text for every file for easy browsing, a very easy interface to record a new voiceset and automatic saves in the correct format without making your fingers bleed. All the wave setting can be adjusted for on the fly recording (sample rate, bit rate, etc.).Stay tuned.Cheers,Pat

Well, I'm going to get this either way - CD or download - but sure would be easier and quicker to download. Hope something can get worked out for this to happen.Ed

There is so much you need in place for a large scale roll out to execute it correctly its not funny. Its not just the bandwidth its the entire infrastucture that makes selling a CD much easier and profitable for them.

What works for some doesnt for others. Bandwidth is 1/10th of the total equation.

If Ultimate Traffic can provide a download of 1 gig for their UT USA release then surely a 700 meg download is quite feasible. Even with only a 512K broadband I have downloaded number of files of 2 gig or more - just let it run overnight and it is there in the morning. These days 700 meg is a very reasonable download size. I see no point in going to all the trouble of preparing CDs plus the added cost of postage for a file of that size.Bruceb

i have done a little research in my spare time, and found a couple of web site hosters that might fill the need. i'll look into it after the first of the year.for the months of november and december, rc will be cd only.thanks for the input, maybe web site hosters have improved since rc v1, v2, and v3 :-)

I'm not sure, but I think the upgrade is "upgrade pricing." I think it will be the exact same CD as the "FULL NEW USER" version. I don't think it will actually be "upgrading version 3" itself.Upgrade pricing is available for 6 months after the release and you can order version 4 on the 3rd of December instead of the 10th of December if you are a prior customer.This is all spelled out on the RC4 website.Of course, if you are going to give them the extra $10 that's your choice, but you will need to wait until the 10th when you could get your order sooner by ordering on the 3rd.Happy Simming!Scott
