  • Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight

    In June, the new version of the Microsoft Flight Simulator will be released. However, not much seems to have changed, and especially the screenshots look as if from FS2002. The only change I'm aware of are the 3 historical planes...

    Grtz,

    What about the hugely improved ATC?
    Diversion, request new altitudes, halt takeoffs of VFR planes if weather goes bad, allows planes to route around bad weather, directing you to the airport if you get lost, sequencing systems, multiple runways usage, SELECTIVE approach and runways and so on... the only thing I'm not sure is declaring emergencies..
    Can I say not buying it? I have not even count things in the GPS!

      I just hope they updated the JFK scenery. If not I'm not spending the money on it.

        I think it will be worth buying it just for the huge weather updates. The clouds look fantastic in the new one with shallow fog banks, nice fluffy clouds not the generic ones now. I can't wait, although I am very disappointed they didn't include more modern aircraft, like an MD11, Tristar, and turboprops like a DHC8, Dornier or the like. Would it kill them to include something foreign? Do they not acknowledge that there's so much more to aviation that USA's contribution?....or are they neglecting the world on purpose?

          Yes, you're right about the ATC and the weather, but is that alone worth $75 (or whatever it 'll cost)?

            $75?!

            Don't forget I live in HKG, where it will cost me about $3.

            However I normally buy real copies of FS, as I believe it is worth it, and I know I will get a good product.

              Hi all

              I'll be buying FS2002 as soon as it's available.........just to get a look at those clouds

              I ain't worried about the old aircraft included.....there are tons of stuff on the flight sim site to add on the the program.

              Here's to happy FS2004 flying

              Cheers

                I just bought FS2002 a year back. I think it would be quite pointless to go and buy FS2004 just as I've got 2002 set up. And frankly, i am more then happy with FS2002

                  Will there be any major diffenrences to FS 2002 than just the clouds?
                  If not Mycrosoft is just after the money.

                    Isnt Microsoft always after nothing but money?

                    They always charge over the top prices for there products.
