They said at Cosford the need for an Internet connection was going to be optional sometime this month; can't come soon enough!

If that was said from someone at fspackages then that is good news indeed. 

I can understand why they took that route but there should be another way of securing their product.

Loving Chase Plane................except the outages :bengong:

To be fair i am not certain it was entirely about security, i also think it was to ensure that everybody was on the same version whilst the product was undergoing Alpha and later Beta testing.  CP seem to be a good company, i would like to think the best, rather than the worst.

They said they were working on offline about half a year ago.

This is really happening too often nowadays

Its not a tool that requires "external" data in order to be functional (like a live weather engine for example). A permanent online requirement is clearly about piracy prevention.

I absolutely understand every payware dev who tries to protect his intellectual property, but as soon as piracy prevention starts to hurt legitimate, paying customers, it goes too far.

Can't disagree with you, i am sat here right now waiting to fly.  It may have taken half a year to get ready to disable the link...  We can only hope that they at the very least, have it check in every now and again and allow it fail the check a few times.

Look i am not an employee of FSFX but it could be that they require testers (which is currently what we are) are all on the same version of the software for troubleshooting reasons.  I do think that they could make it less onerous for these somewhat common outages.
