        From Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.0 in 1982 to what we have today, we take a quick peek of each iteration of MSFS through the decades.

        Amazing! This was very long way, that MiFliSim went! Version 4.0 shared the same engine as STUNTS? Thanks for the link, Alex.

        I have been a flight sim fan and user since the mid 1980s, starting with the Commodore 64. I moved up and bought each new version, some with better improvements than others. When MSFS came out, I gave it a try for a few weeks, but ultimately went back to P3D V4.5 from Lockheed Martin.

        MSFS is still too buggy, awkward with some of its commands, lacking access to others, and just not ready for prime time. For now, I will let others invest the time and money to move this from Beta to a real Alpha…

        On the plus side, the eye candy is impressive. I wish P3D could be configured to use Google maps or a similar display for scenery, even granted access to photo real, ORBX and other scenery developers.
