MS has made no announcements. Your guess is as good as mine.

hmm..... thanx. I was just trying to decide if I should get 2004 or wait 'till 2006, but I think I'll get 2004.

OK, I've been meaning to ask this question. I just started getting a couple payware things and I was wondering if i should wait until I get FS2006 and get payware stuff for that. Or do you think that it all might be compatible with FS2006?

MORE AI TRAFFIC=slower frame rates
ANIMATED GROUND SERVICE=to many resources for 10 minutes out of an 8 hour flight
ABLE TO DECLARE EMERGENCY=so lazy people don't have to fly the pattern
WET RUNWAYS AFTER RAIN FALL= okay, I like this
ANIMALS=completely useless
CAREER MODE=do you want to fly or kiss up?
VIRTUAL FIRST OFFICER THAT DO TAXING SO ON=maybe not taxiing, but for setting com and nav frequencies, etc.
CARS,TRUCKS,ETC.=I can't see them from FL350
SLOPING RUNWAYS=Why?
PASSENGER BOARDINGS=pay attention to setting up the plane for flight rather than that
VIRTUAL CABINS AN SO ON=are you flying the plane or going for a stroll?
ABLE TO START FROM BREIFING ROOM BEFORE FLIGHTS=not necessary, but a display of weather along route to allow you to choose flight levels, etc., might be good
A BUILT IN CAMERA TO ALLOW WALK AROUND IN TERMINALS AND GROUND.=then buy Walk around the terminal simulator, instead

Why people want to add so much bloat to the program for things that have nothing to do with flying the plane, is something I'll never understand.

You just made the post of the month(s)Crash. Bow Down

And by the way....I agree 😉

Maybe. Now I am waiting for someone to say the next version of FS should have UFOs.

BTW, to the OP. There is a sticky thread at the top of the "General" forum for what people want to see in FS 2006.

I'm biting my tongue and not commenting on those folks who want to be rewarded with eye candy when they crash.

If it were up to me, upon detecting a crash, FS would shut down and not restart for 24 hours. Bad flying should not be rewarded. Twisted Evil

UFOs in FS???
There are a lot of them out of FS so i think that the simplest thing MS has to do is to offer a miror with each copy of FS ,as a credit, in order all of us to spot these UFOs... 😉

I'm beginning to wonder if FS2006 will ever come out. Maybe FS9 was their last one. Because there iis no official information on it. Usually they have something on thjeir website a few months ahead. 😕

A while back after it first came out I saw a list of the top 100 software sellers, FS9 was (I think) #84. Yes I'm sure they are going to come out with one, 64 bit (backwards compatible) and on a DVD.

They had better, or else...
Nah I think they will, as RM said it is an extremely popular game, and it would be a big dissapointment for many people if FS10 doesn't come out.

A lot of that bigass list you put on there, many people would have to ask: Why? It doesn't seem that many things there are really nesessary, and furthermore, as another quesiton, how do you know for sure when FS10 will be realeased?
