Almost done... ;-)
The time is here! We are upgrading FS2004.com. Anything you post right now will not be migrated to the new forums. We expect to be done by about midnight EST. See you on the other side!

The site will remain live during this time, so please, no parties or riots.

Wondering what this is all about?

Just thought of my relative who works at Microsoft in Seattle, I'll just give him a call, he pays about 5-10% of the retail price on everything, when those come out I'll send him some money to get Vista and FSX.

then pay that much in shipping making it the same as the listed price(or so) LOL.. but hey, that's awesome man.

FSX looks great from now. Maybe it's just me, but that looks like it's just a scenery enhancer.. I'll save my comments for later when I see more previews. (aircraft etc..)

Vista won't cost $500 for us, there are about 10 different versions and the one the average user would use would probably be around $150.

FSX looks awesome biggrin.gif

looks like an uprated FS2004 to me. Hope theres more to it than that?

But looking at some og those shots - other than the water textures - I've seen Mango take better shots with his payware on FS9!



Edit:

Lol Some financial company beat you to the address Jon laugh.gif

biggrin.gif Thanks Pip, but you have to imagine that those are global shots without an addon. That's absolute awesome ! I'm sure the effects and realism on a good system will be incredible.

Way to go Bill, way to go... cool.gif Let them work 24/7 ! tongue.gif

Visually, there are improvememts. The textures across the board are more varied and better. The trees are a lot more denser now, and forests look like forests instead of a sparse collection of twigs.

The game developers actually have a little bit more than a year to continue working on the product, so the final product is going to be even better.


"A little bit more than a year to continue working...". Does that mean 2007 then? unsure.gif In any case, can't wait to see what the additional improvements will be! w00t.gif

X means 10 in roman numerals, FS10 is the next version....like Final Fantasy X means Final Fantasy 10!

Anyone got the video from the audio clip?
