    An xplane update has been issued. It adds a couple of nice features, but the big thing is how the update dezcription explains how x-plane extreme is coming out with b2 bombers and f22 fighters :) cant wait, any thoughts?

    Man, I only discovered 9.06 today, and there's already a 9.07! We now have *6* areas to fly in in the main game. And Extreme sounds interesting, I gather there will be other planes in the sky for that one. I wonder if the rumored Premium App Store will get a Super X-Plane that has all the areas and planes from from all the versions...of course, the initial reason we got separate versions was they couldn't fit it all into memory at once, so who knows...

    The only thing that concerns me is the size of the area and the potential speed of the new planes in extreme

    If you can fly an SR-71 ... then you can get it up to mach 2 or 3 which means you'll fly over the area in-game pretty quick....
    Sandbox might feel a little more limited in this version

    I would like new planes like the B2 as an update. They are crazy to expect me to dish out another $10 for the same game with some cool planes.

    So, a game where you are chasing other planes to shoot down is the same as a straight pure flight simulator? And if the other games we already have are any indication, it'll also have new areas to fly in that aren't available in the main game.

    I have no idea how to fly either (and damn it's hard to keep real planes in the air LOL) but I find this game to be AWESOME!! Easily worth the $10 they are asking. Easily.

    So now if I wanted every version of X-Plane I'd have to pay $40? Ugh, I already feel ripped off, I won't be getting any more.

    Why do I feel ripped off? Well because when the first one was about to come out there was talk of tons of upcoming features, just it wasn't specified these would be in separate apps...
