New Train Sim in the works!!!

Hey All,

We’ve lifted the veil a little today on what some of the team has been working on since FSX shipped (not me though, still can’t mention what I’m working on :->) and that is Microsoft Train Sim.  This new version is being built on top of the Flight Sim X engine.  Check out the Website for more info.  There’s also a feedback form on the site if you want to send your wishlists in (no guarantees we’ll implement any of them though :->).

I’ve also updated the ACES Bloggers list to the right with 3 new Train Sim related blogs (Yard Limits, Sim Elations, and Rolling).

So, everyone follow along until the conductor yells "All Aboard" :->

Two posts in one month :->

Hey all,

Well, a second post within one month, will wonders never cease :->.  (OK, technically the last post was Dec 30th, but that’s less than 30 days ago :->).

Band Stuff is going fairly well, although I’m still playing catchup on a few of the songs, but its getting there (and the others all sound great, so that just makes me sound better :->).  We’re currently getting ready for our first public gig at Box Seats in Stafford County, VA next Saturday (Jan 27 2007), if you are in the area, drop on by for a rockin’ show (Dirty Jack … When you gotta have it LOUD -n- DIRTY) and/or checkout our website for other upcoming dates.

And for some Flight Sim related stuff, work on Service Pack 1 is still continuing (I’ve got my SP1 fixes checked in already – MP hosts will be glad to hear they should be able to boot players from their game once SP1 is out in the wild) and there’s lots of other activity going on in the team (some of which we should be able to talk about in the near future :->).

And from the wierd weather department, a couple of days ago it was over 70 degrees here in VA and humid as heck (I was this close to turning the A/C on :->) and today its about 40.  Of course, that’s nothing compared to all the snow, ice, and wind storms my co-workers out in the Seattle area have been fighting through the last few weeks.  Drive careful out there guys and gals, I don’t want to inherit your code :->

Well, so long until next time
