Unless everyone can agree that FG must be a civilian
only sim I see little reason why we should not add
features that support the military style aircraft.
The only time you have a valid reason for complaining
is if someone forces you against your will to add
those features.
You can't complain when someone does it out of their
own will in their free time.

Why not have both? My 3 year old PeeCee has plenty of
horse power left and a flying aircraft without a pilot
looks rather odd to me.

If people don't like eye candy then let's make a way
to switch it off but why take the eye candy away from
people who want it?

People use FG for many different reasons. Some are
only interested in hardcore aspects like accurate
instrument approaches and FDMs while others want to
use FG just for the joy of flying.

Lighting is important. How can one use FG for night
training at the moment if you can't see the ground
properly? Why even bother with runway and taxiway
lights then?
I would love to see decent lighting added.

Nice rant.  ;-)
