Hi Folks Happy 2nd. Birthday ! Especially to those of you folks who were beta-testers. :good: Was that really two calendar years ago ? Frightening, as it feels just like yesterday, since that Yeeehahh !!!, on realising FLIGHT RTW had been released early, (by a couple of hours only). I'd great fun that evening, & subsequently, attempting to reacquire my beta-period's previously earned awards, particularly those for the various Landing Challenges, where I was still struggling-away with HI31's sloping & bump-indented runway. I then progressed to the Hawaiian Adventure Pack's content, having a hoot again flying the LCs, my favourites being the RV6-A LC 5 into Lanai, and Maule LC 2 into Haiku in-cloud approaches. When the Alaska Adventure scenery pack was released I immediately felt gutted, realising the majority content's detail-level had been degraded to almost FS2004 levels. Enjoyed the challenges albeit few that there were, especially Alaska -Tatina STOL LC. Wasn't surprised at all when cancellation was announced shortly afterwards. Still love it when I launch FLIGHT, and task switch to whatever, then return to find that startup video playing. Brings back some great memories. I do miss FLIGHT's RTM startup video, and the original beta version's music. Wish we could access some of the unreleased mission/challenge/aircraft content. ATB Paul I've never felt so frustrated, died so frequently/spectacularly/or needlessly, yet had so much fun, in a long time. Flight's Landing Challenges FLIGHT - Earn your wings !
First, I apologize if this has been stated in the AVSIM forums already... if not, I'm glad to report it! As of this past Monday, October 10, 2016, Flight Simulator X turned an official 10 years old! Let this stand as a symbol and legacy for how well anything can age and withstand modern games with a little help from a close-knit community! So... happy birthday, FSX! :Big Grin: :p0502: If anybody has stories (10 years in the making!), feel free to share!
