You can install the SDK though, it's a separate install.

Just have a look at some of the screenshots on Mally's site. There's a
sequence taken by someone towards dusk and the red glow in the cockpit as
the sun goes down is truly excellent.
The bad news here is that my plans have been somewhat turned upside down as
I now have FSX - given to me as a thank you present. It will have to sit in
its box on my shelf until I have a PC capable of running it... which is at
least six months away. <g>

Ruddy 'eck! someone please remind me never to get on the wrong end of Frank

In fact after reading this post I immediately rushed down to Game, bought
the scenery and am installing it now, just to see if it worth getting the
TSO involved <VBG> 

However, I reckon by the time its installed they'll have sorted the
problems, brought out FSXII and we'll all be driving in hover cars! 

Frank FSX is brilliant! truly the next step in flight simulation, but it
needs people like the JHB list critters to help sort it out. We are the
pioneers lads! If even the hardcore of the community can't be bothered to
sort it, who will? 

...does that pass for a rallying speech? 


Ah well! anyone up for some flying later? my PC is just about back to normal
after the pepsi incident so I hope to have a bit of a fly around this

The Horizon scenery, sounds like a real turkey, a complete waste of money. 

It should not have been released, until it had been 100% tested. 

I would be demanding my money back, as unfit for purpose, that and or
reporting them to the Trading Standards Office.. 

I hope Gerry, that you are reporting all the anomalies you find, and asking
for payment as a beta tester. 

It is bad enough, that the FSX scenery needs updating so soon. As it seems
to be worse than the same areas in FS9. Again, where were the beta testers
working, in the U S of A. 

Sorry to sound so cynical, but I have heard nothing good about FSX so far. 

At least, good enough to make me rush out and buy it.
