If The Trainsimmers Can Have Them……

‘Them’ being animated characters, that is, then why CAN’T WE !!?? I am pretty sure there is a ‘market’ for much better detailed and animated people in the FSX world. Early attempts were made in the times of Orcas Island and the products of Bill Lyons, and now in FSX we have the default ones and some from Aerosoft. But in Train Simulator 2 we will get REAL characters apparently! Since it uses the same (FSX) engine, we should be able to have ‘ours’ too, may already now !! Check out an interesting article here !

That is why FSX will be a forgotten story soon after FS11 will see the daylight. Anyway, that is what has been said on various blogs… Read more »
