    Yes MS definitely peaked freeware wise with FS2004.

    Disagree: FSX was much improved... incremental development may have achieved P3D but MSFS is DEFINITELY two steps back, and only 0.1 forward...

    Better than most payware sceneries: Holger Sandman 'Glacier Bay series'

    I forgot to mention Miltom Shupe; he personally helped me out with a couple of his models which made them one of my favorites to fly.

    The Thread got me thinking if there were any others, and I came up with a few more. please forgive me if I get names wrong or mixed up...

    Frank Betts
    Andrew Loney
    And all the others who created all those little Scenery bits for Alaska, which makes flying there much more interesting and somewhat realistic.

    Bush Flying Unlimited
    Alaskan Winds
    (These guys gave a purpose to fly in Alaska; BITD it really gave me something to look forward to doing every day... something I"m trying to rekindle this time around.)

    DC-3 Airlines
    (They're still around, and if you have even a meager taste for flying the Gooney Bird, they're a great place to log some hours with, and re-create the 'golden' days of flight. The DC-3 flew everywhere on a regular basis up into the early 60's, and folks still fly them in Colombia to this day. You know how many airlines there were in the 40's and 50's using the DC-3?)

    Sorry about the plug. They're one of the only places left that cater to us Niners...

    It almost reads like a premature and hasty necrology of FS9 ...

    Indeed. Nothing wrong with FS9. It was the last of the great simulators.

    As Carlos Sainz would say " Smooooth Operator"!

    Hi,

    All of the above, and Jim Vile (learned how to program approaches thanks to his posts), ScruffyDuck (ADE), Sidney Schwartz & Roger Wensley (great scenery), and certainly "Opa" Marshall...

    DDP.
