    Simon, you said in a recent post..

    "I reckon we must be getting to the limits of that coding, or else MS would never countenance a re-write of the game engine for the next edition..."

    thats interesting (re the game engine), can you offer more info ?

    Yeah, the engine is, as I understand it, being streamlined and re-written to take advantage of DX8 (Did you know that FS2002 is actually DX7.0 compliant, and merely Dx8 compatible...?)

    It's early days, but I understand that all scenery will be created using GMax in the new version, which will only support Gmax and Gmax-compliant aircraft - no retro-compatibility this time around, except eith Gmax aircraft already available.

    The opportunity is being taken to (finally) separate CFS from FS and the new CFS3 may no longer be safely regarded as giving clues as to features in the new version of FS.

    If this is true I suspect we might see some useful improvements in some areas

    Hello Simon

    Just a quick question. I'm fairly new to this forum, and have been enjoying your posts. I have used a few of your ideas and suggestions. Others may already know the answer to this question, but how do you know so much! Your posts have covered Flightsim at so many levels, from gameplay to hardware related issues etc. And your insight into upcoming versions gets the heart pumping, and forces me to start saving money for that upgrade, as I'm sure many of us base on Flightsims requirements!

    Just curious about one of the more influential contributors to this forum. I figure that once I know where you get your knowledge from, I will come up with that many more questions that I want to ask!

    Thanks again
