I have been hanging around these forums for a few years now and cant believe the criticisms i am hearing about the new version of FS.
Sure, every new feature is not going to appeal to everyones tastes but it is impossible to make everyone happy. All Microsoft can do is provide a product which would suit most general users.
People say that there are not many new features etc. but what about the better clouds! How many times have i heard people complain about flat clouds on these forums. What about the TAXIWAY SIGNS! How many times have i heard people say they would like taxiway signs in FS.
People complain alot about the planes. I only fly commerical jetliners so i wont be flying any of the old relic aircraft. But then again, even if they added several new "modern" planes who would fly them anyway? How many of the default FS planes do you fly? A few months after the release there will be loads of fantastic better freeware planes available, built by dedicated developers who have alot more time than Microsoft to create them.
There will also be AI aircraft at smaller airfields, new GPS, scenery enhancements, more airports and lots more!
All for just 54 bucks. We spend half that amount on just a scenery add on or a 3rd party aircraft!
True, there are problems with FS and things could be improved here and there. But rather then looking at what we have not got, have a look at what we HAVE got!
