So, I checked out the page, and I'm basically now drooling all over myself. I must have this simulator.

Looks pretty neat, but I hope it's more than just looks. The ATC would be nice, but aren't there add-ons for it now?

Here's my wishlist, none of which are probably in the new version.

An autopilot that will actually intercept a glideslope and follow it down rather than chase after it all the way to the ground.

An FMS (or FMC, if you prefer).

Weather radar that corresponds various intensities with what you actually see out the window.


Ask why..

I hope my 400mhz cpu will run this game as well as it runs CFS2.

Oh my god!! Has any of you already checked out the introduction video?

Check it out, and look at the contrails, and the aircraft landing on the water. Awesome...

Man, this one I've gotta have. Unfortunately, there's a fair chance that I might have to upgrade my computer, costing more than $1000.

Ahh... Contrails and realistic ATC.

Do you know how long I've been waiting for that? When I found out I nearly wet myself I was so excited.

I am pretty excited.. so they have ATC, and in one of those screenshots, it appears gates. Will the ATC instruct you to park at a gate and will their be ground traffic?

I don't think it would be really buggy when its released.
