MS Flight Simulator coming 2020

#1 Post by MikalE » Sat Aug 17, 2019 5:52 pm

Just got wind that MS is re-creating Flight Simulator for Windows 10. I saw the preview at the graphics are amazing. As good or better than what I've experienced so far in X-Plane 11. I signed up for the Insider Program and I would like to become a Beta tester for this sim.

I've been a licensed commercial pilot with an instrument rating since 1989 and would welcome the chance to help improve what they are doing.

Had I known this was going to be released I might have waited. But then again, no one will have a 727 produced at the time MS releases this, so at least I can fly the 727 on X-Plane until that time.

I will still be purchasing MSFS though.

My last version was FS2004 and that was getting very old by today's standards. I had to stick with it though because the version of 727 I bought and paid for wouldn't run on anything but XP. Hell, it wouldn't even load on Win 7, and forget about Win 10.

Interesting! I've had 2002, 2004 and FSX for a time but haven't done much in either for a few years (RL gets in the way). But I'd definitely take a close look at 2020 when it comes out. So much has changed since FSX, I bet we'll see some pretty impressive VFX. Although, I'm a little curious to see how many airports, worldwide, have ceased to exist since FSX came out. I know there were up over 19,000 in the FS2002 database.

The graphics look very good. Outstanding actually. There is a trailer available to watch at the MS site.

I really hope someone develops a 727 as good as Paul Golding did for FS2004 and FlyJSim has for X-Plane 11.
