As much as I love afs2 and I respect the developers I must admit that development is rather slow. This was one of the first sims I bought after having used fsx for years. I purchased right after release and added some scenery as well upon release.
Highlights for me were release of q400 and the heli. Vr is still among the best experience in the field.
I fully understand that developing a sim is a massive task and I do not regret spending money on afs2 at all. Last year I deinstalled afs2 twice because I needed the space and didn't really miss it. I installed it again to fiddle with a320 custom sounds but after a couple of days I removed it all.
It just feels to lifeless at the momemt to be honest. Some actual weather or some traffic here and there would be very welcome. I don't have dozens of hours every week just a couple of hours during weekends and I want as much immersion as possible.
When afs2 came out development in VR flightsim world was pretty slow but in current day and age things are completely different and that is not good news for IPACS unfortunately.
I hope some features will be added in the future. I will be the first to reinstall stuff because in the core this is a very good, visually stunning and extremely stable platform. Afs2 never crashed in all these years. That's an accomplishment on its own.
