But can I ACARS free text to get the latest scores in the World Cup? ;)

 

All joking aside, I've been simming for about 10 years and I don't even have a clue on what half of this means, which means this is a good sign! Love these updates

This really does show just how far the flight sim genre has come. Developers have really got to step their game up to keep up with the times. On-board navigation equipment, and flight instruments is at the forefront of flight sims now. Long may it last. :ididit_s:
