I expect to see advancements on a lot of fronts in the near future. We almost have a freeware weather program, we have the gazillion ports of airplanes from krzysk1, a couple of JF airplanes are in work, Jeff is in the finally throws of having his traffic program, TomSimMuc and Friends are making outstanding scenery with advancements every hour including thing they were told that were no possible - like lights on the road traffic, and there is talk about opening up the navigation system for GPS, flat displays and more.
If you still using that old clunker PC this might be a good time to spec out a new one for all this stuff coming down the pike?
"If you still using that old clunker PC..." Guilty! It has not been a priority... Putting money aside for impending income tax is right now! Next machine will have to run AFS2, X-Plane 11, and (maybe) P3Dv?
