Anyone Heard Anything About FS 2006 ?

Recommended Posts

The most commom guestimate for the release of FS2006 is the spring-summer (northern hemisphere) of 2006. Maybe sooner, maybe later. Maybe PC-only, maybe an X-Box version of some sort also. MS isn't saying and none of us really know.DougEdited because I can't spel

I'm curious as to how anyone would be able to speculate about an xbox version based on any facts. Somebody makes one post about FS for xbox and it seems to have taken on a life of its own. If there is any "information" to warrant such a rumor, I would love to see it.Scott

I would like to be the first to say that IMO the decision to delete the post regarding the future (or lack of it)for Flightsim on either PC or XBox was at best juvinile and at worst symtomatic of the worst kind of censorship.There are many like me who are quite skeptical about the prospects of a new FSX and would have welcomed the opportunity to ask this gentleman about the source of his post.Alas that will not happen now because someone,somewhere has decided that the mere idea of a world without a new FS is unthinkable and,apparently unprintable.Bad call Avsim! re-instate the post now and let the gentleman explain the source of his info along with the relevant background info.If he is lying then forum members will make up their own minds on the issue.As for the person who pressed the elert button......all I can say is he needs to get out more.kevin

Kevin I didn't see the post but it sounds like someone was once again claiming there will be no future version of FS...If that's the case there are many of us in the loop that know that's just out right not true. If that was the subject of the post it should have gotten deleted as we don't need to hear anymore of that non-since. There's no need to hear what else he has to say when key people in this community are in contact with the MS development team.Like I said I didn't see the post but I know there's a good reason Avsim removed it. Just like the XBOX 360 fiasco I let myself get pulled into which is another issue that doesn't deserve the time and energy many of us have put into it. Flight Simulator on XBOX is a ridicules concept to say the least unless that console became as open sourced (hardware wise) as the PC...

Dillon,its difficult to decide which is the more offensive.The decision to censor the thread in question or your condesending reply.You support the deletion of the post because its assertion is "just out right not true".You don't offer any evidence to support your claim other than "there are many of US in the loop that know".You go on to assert that "There's no need to hear what else he has to say"You then go on to describe the thread on the XBox as a fiasco.I'm sure the posters on that thread would be delighted to hear their contribibutions described as such.The issue here is censorship.So lets get this straight.A man posts a comment that claims that there will be no FSX for either PC or XBox.His comments are deleted.Another man claims that the opposite is true and that this reason alone is good enough to warrant the removal of the original posters thread.So Dillon, perhaps you would care to offer those of us who are "outside the loop" what evidence you have for the assertion that there will indeed be a new FS.kevin

There was a vague message about an X-box flightsim on an X-box site at the time of the X-Box360 announcement.That took on a life of its own here to the point where it's been speculated that FS10 may well be X-Box only.

Kevin this topic has been beaten to death over the last year, do some research (it's an old tired issue that has been research and found not true). I've been chosen (among others) by Microsoft to monitor my FS9 usage which will help in the next version of FS. Why would Microsoft waist time and resources if they were closing up shop on Flight Simulator. Boeing and other Aviation institutes are helping with the next version of FS as well as helping key developers in our community with current add-ons (I wish Gulfstream and Airbus would do the same). I don't want to mention any names but some people among us in these forums know MS team members and the FS team members themselves frequent these forums... Sites like Avsim and Flightsim.com have connections in Redmond as well.Avsim or any FS web related site has no time for negative propaganda that is virtually untrue (at least that's my understanding). When the facts are well known why let people waist everyone else

Dillon,I don't doubt your bone fides.You post a thread that claims that FSX will definitly happen at some stage in the future.You support this claim with only hearsay or speculative evidence.As you say yourself "I don't want to mention any names".Another gentleman post an earlier thread which claims that in fact there will be no FSX in either PC or XBox formats.His post is deleted by the modorators thereby denying fellow forum members the opportunity to establish his bone fides.The same opportunity you now enjoy.I don't give a toss whether there is a new FSX or not.What I do object to is post being deleted simply because it doesn't comply with somebody elses idea of the truth,however obscure that truth maybe.The post in question was neither insulting to others,racially motivated,sarcastic or offensive to forum members.Let's say for one moment that it was posted in jest.Was that grounds for deletion? Say the poster knew something that even you didn't know Dillon.Was that grounds for deletion.We may never know.I for one am glad that I don't live in a world were "others" decide what is good and what is bad for me.The issue is censorship.I call on the moderator of this forum to re-instate the post in question and not to allow themselves to be corralled into censoring posts that offend the sensibilities of those "in the loop".kevin

Hi Dillon,I'm intrigued by your statement?!?!"There's no need to hear what else he has to say when key people in this community are in contact with the MS development team."What do you mean more precisely?

Kevin - This is privately owned forum. There is no right to freedom of speech in such venues. "Others" will, in fact, decide what does, and does not, remain posted here. If that offends anyone greatly, so be it. But the rules here aren't going to change conform to any third-party definition of censorship.Doug

Hey guys thanks for your replies, I did not mean to cause a fight, I only enjoy the flying in the FS world. I know in the past the FS came in October, November befor the X-mas season shoping as most top notch games. I use xbox for games and seems to be fine. I would think that it would not be as advanced as the PC version due to the about of buttons that a controller has. You have to expand your horizon here and there or you will never grow. I'm a AOPA member and read in last months magazine how FS helped a young guy get his pilots lic. He started when he was 13 and has his lic at 16. I had about 600 hours in flight sim when I started to fly aswell and helped me out too. It really helps in the IFR world as it did for me. I just wish you count the time in IFR for remaining current.Have a great day Scot.

I was just wanted to know if anyone has heard anything about FS 2006 when it will be out and what it might have to offer. Well I have FS 98, 2000, 2002 and 2004 just excited about the new one.Scot
