I browse the forum and miss the high times of FS9 when there was so much to discuss, add-ons, new planes being released, fantastic cockpits, sceneries, links to developpers, frewares that excel, etc.
The forum now is soooooo boring, with only topics on how to set up the game, basic questions about flying, about fps or ...well, nothing that makes the serious hobby fan want to check it up regularly.
So heres a message to newcomers: This is not how the hobby usually is...stick around and in a year or two it will be much more exciting and realistic.
What are we most missing in FSX, besides the performance issue and patches that ought to be addressed by microsoft. What are we missing from the community?
1) Good sceneries of cities and airports (not just the terrain mesh)
2) Good add-on planes, specially ones from 20th century, the golden era with analog instruments.
3) Gauges, gauges, gauges and more gauges.
4) Decent Panels, yes...: the cockpit IS the sim, an excellent plane without a panel is useless. VC as most of us know, are still not good and fast in graphics detail.
I am not going back to FS9 cause I believe in the improve on realism potential of FSX. I am just waiting...
