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."

Quboid,

Depends on what kind of flying you do.

I've tried several of the free mesh's and I have seen some the Payware scenery like (flying buddy bought some). To be honest wasnt impressed with it considering the cost.

The only one I do suggest is USA Roads (assuming you fly in the US) as it really did improve VFR.

FSWater isnt bad either..it offers several water types and also includes sky textures.

FSNav is also helpfull if you dont have charts available for an area your flying in..it makes finding VOR or NDB a bit easier on the fly over the stock map as it runs while the sim is running.

Keep in mind most of my flying in FS9 is mainly for Nav/Instrument flying practice or rough cross country planning...for getting a feel for airports I might be actualy flying in in RL.

If your flying military aircraft or Airline/Transport types then some of the other addons might be more usefull.
