    Lockheed Martin Prepar3D

    I don't think that this has been mentioned before in this forum. (This is in Wikipedia.)

    In November 2009, Lockheed Martin announced that they had negotiated with Microsoft to purchase the Intellectual Property (including source code) for the Microsoft ESP product. Microsoft ESP was the commercial-use version of Flight Simulator X SP2.

    On May 17, 2010, Lockheed announces that the new product based upon the ESP source code is called "Prepar3D" (pronounced "Prepared"). The product is rebranded for Lockheed Martin and is backwards compatible with the previous Flight Simulator X SP2 and ESP v1.0 products. Lockheed have hired some members of the original ACES studio to continue development of the product. According to the IP agreement with Microsoft, Lockheed Martin cannot sell the product to the entertainment market.

    The product will be released later in 2010 for sale directly from the Prepar3D website. Potential users and developers are able to pre-register for evaluation versions on the Prepar3D website: http://www.prepar3d.com

    Flight Sim continues albeit in a different form, but Lockheed are continuing to make improvements and adding new features and functionality to the baseline code.
