Should FS2004 Have A Story Mode?

Sun Dec 29, 2002 5:27 pm

Like

1)you are hired by a small regional (in the USA,Europe ,SE Asia 'm.east..)and

developed from there after a set of missions and tests .(

all weather ,difficult airports...).
2)or you start as a bush pilot in africa or alaska working your way up from

there if you want ....

I know it sounds boring but after taking the six or seven flights flying the

that writer in fs2002 adventures I can tell you it is not.(of course having 199 active A.I aircraft variants helps  Smile/happy/getting dizzy )

What about- you can get some aircraft types after earning some money in missions supplied by the game you can continue to take advanced missions .

Just like that racing games - you can get a better engine after you have won some races.($$$$)

I'd hope not. Or IF there is, make it optional...

I hate to be forced into following a storyline set by someone else.

It will give your decisions -like should I go around?Can I take off from here? Should I fly to another airport? Some new interesting meaning (if there is something to be lost). And you can get rewarded for arriving on time .

Here is another - you fly/own for a struggling cargo airline - having to fly old DC3/4/8 (high engine lost -set by the game) to small ,dangerous,remote (high cost for replacing that lost engine if you manage to abort on time and stay in one piece) airports just to stay in business.

That is a step in the right direction. But it is not complete. I see the FS as tool that until now is left unused. Like an engine with no car.
I (as I assume everyone) took the B744 to places were no B744 has gone before -but what did I had to loose ? Nothing (beside waiting for the game to load again) and what did I gain -nothing .Its time to put some real interest in that game .It sounds so simple .(simple enough to run it in our heads so why not put it into the game?)

I don't take aircraft where they can't go (unless when I load an aircraft before changing the location to where I plan to start from of course).

Using addons you can make of FS whatever you want to (or almost, you won't get working guns and bombs, get CFS if you want those).

Yeah, I'd have to say "nay" on the story-line idea. It does wonders for MS Train Simulator, but FS is a good enough program to get along without one--and it's done just fine so far.

I think I see where you guys are coming from when you say a storyline might make FS more meaningful. But there's got to be about a zillion add-on programs and VAs that already serve that purpose. And what about just flying? Isn't that meaningful enough?

I'm starting to shun the airline aspect of FS (except for the VA that I fly for), and concentrating more on general aviation, since that's where all the energy of my real-world aviation career is focused. Also, I can say with some confidence that FS does a much more accurate job simulating the GA aircraft than it does the airliners--they are very much less complicated than they could be, whereas the GA stuff is a lot closer to the real thing.

I doubt Microsoft would do this. If they did, then I think they would put it as an option for the user.
