Me too! A little.I can't help thinking that the luke warm reception which Flight is likely to get from a lot of old school simmers may be the best thing for FSX developers. From my reading of the forums I sense the frustration which some developers suffer when they have to adapt their modelling techniques to comply with a new SDK every three or four years. Having a predictable SDK for an extensive period of time may be just what they've been hoping for.It's great to see PMDG heading off in a new direction with their DC-6. And with so many FSX projects on the horizon for them, the guys must enjoy a little snicker at the less than stellar reception which Flight has received so far.

Stay tuned for the Around The haWaii Race!Just kidding, but I'm quite interested to see what MS are going for with this. It seems they have alienated most (all?) 3rd party devs, so I have a hard time thinking it will amount to much. Though if it just is an updated FSX it will be interesting to see if it's possible to get the content from FSX into Flight...

Well done DC, I was about to post something about a "Round Hawaii Race 2013" but you beat me to it! How many laps round the island to make a 4 day event?!I'll probably download Flight just to take a look but it won't be going anywhere near my FS PC until I see plenty of confirmation that there's no interference with FS. If there's a grain of truth in the rumours it doesn't look like it's a product aimed at hard core flight simmers, but I'm willing to try it even if it's just out of curiosity.
