With the flight sim market being quite busy and alive lately I am doing my best to defend the honor of Aerofly FS 2 on various forums. However, it is becoming more and more difficult to convince people that Aerofly FS 2 is a valid option because progress simply is too slow. Yes, there are minor updates and yes, there was Utah, but I am talking about serious simming nog options. Planes with (a lot) more functionality. Things like ATC, AI. Things that have to do with the actual simulation of flight. I notice more and more people are dismissing Aerofly FS 2 because it is lacking in too many departments and there simply is no progress. I have been waiting for the Dash for a long time now: that would finally be a plane that would show that Aerofly FS 2 is a serious sim. That would show the potential to a lot of doubting simmers. But nothing. I know the default planes are being worked on but... I have no clue when we will get more functionality.
Even though Aerofly FS 2 is lacking too much I still prefer it by far over the competition. The upcoming LOWI addon from Orbx is a great thing but I would rather see something serious coming from IPACS. I am sure you are working hard on things but that won't convince anyone to invest in Aerofly FS 2. I sometimes feel a fool defending the sim. Now I don't care about feeling a fool but I do care about the future of Aerofly FS 2 and I am more and more afraid the sim is falling behind and people spend their money elsewhere and Aerofly FS 2 may end up dead.
I know things are ready when they are ready but still... I would prefer a bit more insight on how things are progressing. And I would like it even more of things actually get released.
So, I just had to get that off my chest.
