I also don't want them to lock-out third party devs, as they have been the life blood of FS and keep it interesting.

I think X-Plane could become a good platform, esp. if devs such as orbx turned their attention to it, but I don't see that happening unless MS FS dies a complete death...at least it is there as an alterative.
I put a little note at the end of my survey to plead with them not to turn it into some type of an arcade game. As far as X-Plane goes, I have had nothing but trouble with it. It has been much better now that I have a nvidia card however. But still, its hard to use and the scenery is inaccurate even thought its 70Gigs on my HD lol, whats with that?. The atmosphere is always dreary and lame looking. I guess I just got use to MFS and its hard to switch.

Yep i think FSXI on the RRODBox would be total FAIL but as they say you have to fail to know how to succeed,maybe they need to fail to see just what there turning there back on.....

TongassX should hit this weekend i see it very looks sweet check these roll overs as night and day as anything orbx has done sofar

http://www.flightsimplaza.com/tongas...comp_home.html

Personally I could not care less about counsel systems. Other than when I was a kid I have never owned one. I have always been a PC gamer. Most of my friends think I'm nuts for gaming on a PC, too many options, hardware and the whole mouse and keyboard thing. I can't stand the stupid game pads myself so lol....

Anyway, let Microsuck turn FS into a game and someone else will pick up where they left off.

Yep, mainly becuase the coverage area is smaller than a full Orbx region, so it's much more detailed, however Holger Sandmann is the creator of both Tongass Fjords and a good portion of the Orbx technology, so they are comparable in many ways. The thing about Tongass Fjords is that it's only one of three project areas that are right next to each other. His Misty Fjords is to the south of this one, and Glacier Bay will be to the north. Also what sets it apart from FTX is all the custom objects. Nearly every detail in the area is included, 31 forest service cabins, every lake over 65ft wide, every island over 65ft wide, a full system of roads, 17 photoreal areas, two airports like the one seen above created by Bill Womack, as well as every other airflield in the coverage area, including abandoned dirt strips, all the floatplane bases, and of course every settlement and town is included, most photoreal with a full array of custom buidling and objects.
