A lot of people are still stuck on this huh? The rest of you post maybe true, yet i'm still thinking it's going to be a mix sim/game.
Only way to find out is to wait for final release hmmm?
To be fair,I'm stuck on the lack of third party support, and the removal of the entire planet.
I want the whole earth in one package. I want the next version of the Flight Simulator series.
Good luck with that.
You should try Prepar 3D instead. This is the closest you will get to a flightsim in MSFS' spirit.
Heck you can apparently even port over most of your add-ons!
Prepar 3D is an option, I suppose. But why use it instead of FSX? Isn't the same sim? Also, I don't like the idea of paying a monthly fee to game.
From the way the guys at ORBX are talking, the Prepar3d team is basically working on FS11 as we speak. Among their improvements will be shuffling a lot of the workload to GPU's, for example.
As far as monthly fee? I figure $120 a year is a fair price if Lockheed continues to put their money where MS's mouth was. I'd have happily been paying $10 a month for FSX all these years if there were constant improvements being made to the sim the entire time. I think it's healthy for the industry to start charging premium prices for premium content.
BTW, regading multiple copies, don't you only get three serial number activations per copy?
