Thanks for the reply! I am on steam and on the beta, so most of those improvements should be waiting for me.
The Netherlands and South Florida are actually much older than six months!
Have there been any startling home-brewed, not to be missed scenery additions since January?
I am not optimistic enough to have thought things like weather, ATC or fuel flow had been implemented, and if they had I'm sure the forum would be buzzing with details so i couldn't have missed them. I am just hoping that in some subtle but important ways the sim has moved forward in my absence.
