FS2004 Update Plans

The AVSIM Forums (thanks Jim) offers photos of a presentation announcing plans for a patch for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 that will add a bunch of user-requested features. The AVSIM Online news page offers a summary of what's planned for the update, which is expected by early October: "some of the features it brings, like all of the 160 missing bridges, new autogen objects for KJFK, enhanced frame rates and product stability as well as increased terrain data support from 76 meter to 19 meter elevation data."

Thanks for the suggestions Tabs. I can't find much info on what FSGenesis actually does. I understand the mesh but I'd like to see how this actually impacts the graphics. The thing I really doesn't get is the price - $10 for each of about 40 meshs? $15 for each of about 30 ground texture sets? That's about $850 for the lot. Am I missing something? Even if I limit to where I regularly fly (which I don't tend to do but I could pick a few places), it would cost me about $100.

FSWater looks good. Does it include the sky textures or is that something else? Does it cover the whole world all the time?
