Well, you're dead on. The funny thing is, there's enough information out for us to know that Flight is a repackaged FSX. They add a few planes, make some pretty autogen for the big island, so on and so forth. If you want to build flight and get all the scenery, you'll be paying for extremely expensive FSX upgrades essentially. I don't know how much adding the whole world will cost, but I'm sure it'll be hundreds at a minimum.

Everyone in this thread has very good points to make. This is the first rational flight thread we've had.
Here's something else for you: Why couldn't they have made the island in photoreal with overlaid vegetation and buildings? That's clearly the way of the future. They had a small enough area. Why are we stuck with autogen?
