Post subject: For the Air Racers....

...it appears air racing (Red Bull style) will be integral to the next gen MS Flight Simulator, if that's of interest. Multiplay aspects I have no idea about.

Post subject: Re: For the Air Racers....

Outstanding video!!!

It'll certainly be very interesting to see the air race option being offered,a and the new multiplayer capabilities. I still think I see a lot of CFS3-ish graphics in the screenshots and videos, and if that's true and they use the CFS3 core multiplayer engine, we'll be WORLDS ahead of the archaic multiplayer interface and functionality we've had all this time.

And man it'll be a trip to see what add-ons make the crossover! Either way, it'll end up working out.....it always does. Been looking more and more into Vista as well, and sure like what I see in both releases coming up!
