I have recieved numerous emails concerning the remaining V2 shipments. I have addressed this in a previous newsletter, but forthe benefit of those who either don't recieve them, or don't read them :-), here's what we're looking at:
--V2 Mexico will be released on or about August 1. It will ship automatically to those who have previously ordered the now defunct North America product, or the FSX Media Bundle.
--V2 Alaska-Hawaii will be released on or about August 22. It will also ship automatically as above.
--V2 Canada will be released on or about September 30. It will also ship automatically as above.
--V2 World will be released on or about November 15. It will also ship automatically as above.
The reason for these dates, which are considerably later than first envisioned, is that the process is very tedious and time-consuming if done properly, hand-editing, and literally thousands of airports. Unless I or someone else can figure out a more automated process, this V2 update process will take considerable time. V2 US was more automated since the source data for both FSG and the default were derived from a common source. V2 for Canada and Mexico were derived from different datasets, the slight differences of which precludes an automated process, according to my technical knowledge.
In the meantime, of course, you are welcome to download the V1 files if you have not already done so. Simply log into your FSG Store account and click "My FSX Downloads"
Thanks for your patience and understanding and I'm sure the end result will be worth the wait.
