"And while you are at it NOTE THE PRICE. WAY overpriced especially for a panel that looks like it has pre FS98 textures."A matter of opinion, what you are paying for is very exacting duplication of electrical, hydraulic and fuel management systems, let alone the flight dynamics and accurate instrumentation depiction. Something that took a great deal of time to program and was actually done as a systems training program for commuter airlines that use this aircraft. If you don't actually own the aircraft yourself you aren't really in a position to judge the textures since you have only seen screenshots which are usually compressed jpegs. The hours of enjoyment I have personally had simming with the Majestic Dash 8 far outweigh the cost, BTW I pay more to rent a Cessna 172 for one hour than this particular title.
