Greetings from Phoenix!
As long as everyone is expressing their wishes and desires for FS2, I might as well also.
I'm not a pilot, and never will be. I spent my whole working career in the airline and travel industry. I am a casual, but avid, simmer. A flying gamer, if you insist. I am not the least bit interested in *study level* aircraft, though I think it's great they exist. Truly amazing actually!
What I want is a highly polished FSX with terrific, accurate default terrain and city graphics, and no popping autogen, hiccups, stutters or pauses. I don't want another tweaking puzzle that's always missing pieces. The fewer scenery addons I have to purchase the better. FSDT Airports are truly wonderful, but they are problematic and very frustrating -- and they shimmer and twinkle.
I want highly detailed and accurate default airports, with ILS, in major cities. Oh, and throw in a really nice directional default push back tug!
I don't really care about real world weather as long as the default weather selections are credible, visually. I don't like flying in bad weather in real life, so why would I in the sim (where I can also play God)?
I want a flight planner and GPS similar to FSX with option to have the auto pilot follow the flight plan on the GPS same as FSX.
I want inside and outside camera's for multi views. It would be nice to be able to place a camera around the airport and runways like FS9.
Like FSX default planes I want to be able to fly FS2 default airliners(with super HD graphics) with just ALT Hold, Vertical Speed Hold, Heading Hold, and Speed Hold and Approach Hold with the Auto Throttle and Flight Director for an auto pilot(CMD). I don't care about LNAV, VNAV, RNAV, SIDS, STARS, FMS, etc. In other words a simplified FSX style NAV system in the default liners. Speaking of default airliners where's the 777-200/300, 757-200/300 and the 737-800/900?
I want an ATC program similar to or better than FSX.
It would be nice to have features like FRAPS and FS Recorder for making videos.
Btw, I just ordered the DVD version of this game.
