New FSX Screenshots are out

I know its been awhile since my last post, and I completely missed the first round of info we released at CES and the associated screenshots we released about that time.  But, we have some new screenshots out now, the first 3 new ones are available over at AVSIM .  Here’s a link to the discussion thread talking about the new screenshots.

I know I haven’t had much FS related on this blog, but I didn’t figure folks would be all that interested in changes to our dialog boxes (which is what I’m working on this version) :->.  I mean, how interesting is it to hear that our list controls now have the ability to display graphic images within the cells, or can have different colored text per line or per column, etc.  Useful stuff for us as we design the dialogs, but not exactly earth shattering info for you guys :->.  That and I can only talk about features, etc that have been publicly announced (which granted, doesn’t cover a whole lot just yet :->) further limiting what dialog/UI things I can talk about, even if anybody did find them interesting.

So, go check out those screenshots and I’ll se ya around.

I for one am interested in your work, granted, not the most important part of the sim, but think of it this way…..The dialog boxes are the very first thing one would see when starting FS and so consider them a "window to a world" and yes, that DOES have impact!
I’m sure you’re doing great work, especially gfx within dialog boxes, as beforehand, it was sometimes like trying to ‘paint a room through a letterbox stuck on the door.’

Well, I’m very interested in how interaction with ATC might be improved.  I don’t like having to use the keyboard.  Any thoughts on adding mouse/wheel interaction to it?

Well, I think they are very important.  One of my favorite improvements in FS2004 was to be able to select the current Flight name in the Save dialog (to be able to overwrite an existing Flight).
I hope to see much more of that!
