Default Flight Simulator X: ACCELERATION (official thread!)

So I am a GameStop employee... and as I was scrolling through my reserves. Blammo! Flight Simulator X: Acceleration

I can only assume its an expansion pack, strolling onto the shelves at $29.99!

Any information about the game, please post here for me, and EVERYONE else.

New planes?
New environments?
Please all information is appreciated!
I hope you can fly a rocket ship

I was excited about 2 minutes then I found out there's no combat, only flying around. Kinda turns me off.

^ its a lot more fun than you think, especially when you don't play arcade mode, and you play it realistically.. a lot to learn and grasp. Makes for a very cool title.

But my question is...

do people really fly in between giant airplane red bull cones? lol

When is the release date?????? Thats what I want to know!!!

The Acceleration expansion includes 3 new planes, 30+ missions, and new features.

The aircraft are an F/A-18 Hornet with newly modeled multi-stage afterburner and workng aircraft carrier, P-51D Reno Racer with new dual stage supercharger system and multiplayer air racing, and Merlin Helo with with working hoist and slingloads.

The afterburner system, supercharger system, and hoist are all new the sim.

Acceleration also includes SP2-DX10, which means just that, DX10!

I play Jane's F/A-18E Superhornet still. I only play military combat fligt sims, not civilians ones as I can't stand those. I play arcade ones too, like BF2 flying if I'm bored.

Yeah get it if you can. EBgames shows that it ships on 10-23, though when I posted about it at avsim the Acceleration Developement Lead for ACES said they are wrapping it up in the near future, but he cannot confirm a release date yet. I've seen a couple different ship dates though depending on the site, so I don't know if 10-23 is accurate, as they will just put something up there to get your money.
