    Insane find there Steve, thanks for sharing! That really takes me back quite some time. Can you guys believe how far we've come?! I remember when I REALLY got into FS hot and heavy back in 1998/99 and late 99 they showed a screenshot of what could be potential scenery one day for FS. It showed tons of 3d trees on a mountain side. We now call this 'autogen'! I remember thinking, 'Wow, I cant wait till they get this out for everyone. They're going to have to make a 64MB video card just to run it!' Wow, did we ever get a surprise...

    Well, imagine how much better it potentially could be in the next 4-8 years then!

    I like the comment the host made; “It’s a different world now, we have 386 chips and VGA graphics”.

    What's next,LOL?

    Thumbs up

    This brings back memories of my first flight sim program. Back in 1982 in England I purchased a BBC Model B computer. One piece of software was a 747 flight sim program. I don't remember any color but the graphics for that time was very good. I think even better than early subLogic software

    Another old FS was for the early Mac. I think it was called "Falcon" which was way ahead of the earlier PC based software.
