Here is an idea to make it more realstic with the real world (easier then the satellite photo idea). You know how you can see airline flights in the air 'live' (well, about 5-10 min delayed for security reasons. Those 'live' java feeds give you the speed, altitude, direction, long/lat, of many airlines. They should create a program that interprets that data (by the area you are flying) and feed that data into FS2002. Then you could fly with real traffic!!! And if MS wanted too, in the new flight sim they could make it so when the airplane got close enough to the airport, FS would take over and land it (since the site's information doesn't give that much detail). Just an idea...maybe it's been said before, who knows. Take it as you wish.
