Thanks!.. I will check it out.

I have to wonder how the frame rate will be with all of the new detail now. Hopefully the developers will fix it to allow those out there with not so fast PC's to enjoy the new Sims.

Hopefully this time around they will add military aircraft too!

Well, I like the scenery and aircraft, but I sure hope there is a way to turn off those blasted birds! Evil or Very Mad

A big improvement for me, is that the roads actually look like roads instead of dirt tracks.
I wonder what will happen CG to actually fly through those flock of birds ??? maybe they've included engine/screen damage, I doubt it though.

😀 Well the scenery looks impresive 😀 and the Q & A has disspelled some issues,ie backwards compatability and the need for the new Vista

(While “Flight Simulator X” will not require Windows Vista, it will be optimized for the latest in Windows gaming hardware and fans will get the best experience by running on Windows Vista.)

One very impresive screenshot at the Avsim site,top row,middle pic
Stunning 😳
Note this is old news now so scroll down from the front page

Umm... They all say its direct from MS(and I dont disbelive them Nope )But why still nothing from Microsoft ❓

One question I would like answered,what was the spec of the PC used for the screenshots ❓ 😉

And will the official min specs be as laughable as they were for fs9 ROFL

WOW! WOW! WOW! 😳 I CAN'T WAIT FOR FSX!

For the more game play minded, we are adding a new mission-based element to give fans a more objective driven experience with a sense of progression and skill development

I AM SO BUYING IT ASAP 😀

Dont you guys just looooooooove the screenshots? They look too good to be true!!!

The screenshots look very nice 😎
Now I have to read all those articles to get some knowledge of FSX 🙄

I am saving the pennies for a new computer already. Just read the review and specs, very impressive but very demanding. The screenshots of the dynamic scenery and textures look immense. Better sacrafice a few things over the next few months to run this beast.

Note the fact that the specifcations give are for FSX to run on mimimal settings.

FSX will be on a DVD and they said that they will not put out a CD set.

Are they going to force us to put the DVD into the DVD caddy in order to run the sim or will it be fully loaded.

I know there will be a NO-CD-crack out (if necessary) before or a day after it hits the shelves but I wonder what MS's thinking will be with DVD's.

About halfway down in that Flightsim.com article there's a picture of a yellow/white 172 overflying some streets and buildings from maybe, what, 500 feet? Based on what I've seen of FS9 (not as much as all you guys), I'm flabbergasted. The local streets, the buildings, the trees.... All looking sharp and detailed and quite three dimensional. I recently installed MegaScenery New York, which I thought of as pretty good, but it offers nothing like that view at such low altitudes. If that screenshot actually represents a real place, and FS X can offer that kind of scenery realism for a lot of the world, and it can run without me having to buy a $250+ graphics card and dual core processor (still frighteningly expensive, to this simmer), then not only will it be a staggering visual improvement over what I have now, it will require a whole new approach from the scenery add-on makers, as well.

I guess I'm saying, I love those screenshots, but it would be really interesting to know exactly what we're viewing in them.
