There is a site called www.flyace.com/ace.htm which I thought had a really great idea for Flight Simulator – It started with FS5.1, took in FS98 and a bit of FS2000, but I think after that it probably became to difficult to integrate with new flight simulator programs. It is still there but doesn’t function any more like it use to.
No doubt some of you reading this may have actually joined ACE in the past. If so you will know what I’m talking about – If not go to the site and have a browse around. – It’s worthwhile as a piece of flight simulator history, if nothing else.
I don’t know whether MS would consider this type of “ mission orientation” for the new FSX, but I for one would welcome it. It wasn’t too complex, and I would think most people could figure it out quickly and easily, yet it had enough to keep it interesting. I realise it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it certainly had a lot of people hooked on it back in the old days.
