I love Hawaii!
That said, I don't wanna fly there all the time, so out comes the wallet. NOT!
Now why would I buy an airliner(if even available), that is dumbed down, to fly across the wide expanse of a ... a deserted wide expanse?
Freebie, so, I will download it, but the entire NA West coast, including a couple planes that have the range, needs to be $5 or less to keep me interested.
Kids get bored in a hurry and Daddy's not gonna pop for once a week flying expen$e$. MS better have a whole string of cheap new areas in the wings.
Most folks will get bored after a few complete circuits, without something to renew their interest at reasonable cost(right now I go to an FS library, grab a plane and some scenery, FREE), that interest is lost.
That's exactly what happened with me between FS5 and FS98(I had no internet back then). Two years of my joystick gathering dust.
IMO, a super-real simulator with rookie and a top-o-the heap multiplayer mode would have had more of a draw for anyone interested in flying.
I can just see MS multiplayer now, a bunch of Aerocarboats chasing each other around. Bumper-Planes anyone?
What, I have to wait a month to fly LAX to JFK? And get out my wallet again. See ya! Wouldn't wanna be ya!...Don
