    What's going on with FSW?

    Yes i agree; p3d price tag is costly; but the sim is reasonable fully functioning sim; to me there is no preference; Fsw is what is and P3d is what it is; i use all sime available out there really. Some simmer rather avoid the pain of Early access stages; and prefer to splash the $$$ to be up and running straight away because of hobby time limitations etc etc. Yes Fsw have nice ideas but still have a long way to go at the moment.

    Dovetail Announce first official FSW DLC coming!

    Steam gamers will not spend $. 20. 30. Or 50. For an fs add on. Very unlikely at this point

    Best scenery ever?

    yes true fsw include accufeel; but that is not new either to flightsimulation - yes is included as default - very true - but the fsw terrain engine is mostly unchanged from fsx; that is why fsx - addons terrain based scenery work in fsw as they are, and to be honest they also show exactly as in fsx or p3d. I am comparing the scenery and how it look in fsw - not the simulators itselfs.

    Best scenery ever?

    put it the way we like it - either than true sky different clouds i see no other difference - using high res photorealistic + TREEX-LEGACY either in fsx p3d or fsw
