In my opinion, Inferno is FS3.
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

um...Can anyone get onto the Interplay website?

I can't...says it's not there and the interplay-store is "unable to complete transactions at this time." mate?!

I would, to be honest, be dissapointed if they announced FS3, it's far more fun NOT knowing what happened next ;) And since the story would either be just like an already ongoing Mod, or will be so different as to make the other Mods obsolete, it is unlikely to be well recieved by the majority of the community ;)

I would be seriously scared if FS3 was announced one day.
And especially if it wasn't made by V..
Anyone else would probably **** things up royally, and then we'd all be scarred for life, and have a **** game which ruined the rest of it for us.

A little bit pessimistic, but's not coming out anyway, so it doesn't matter :p

Even :V: would mess things up.

Considering the "leap" into the abyss when you compare FS2 to FS1 I must say the team must have been under very poor management or some key personal were lost on the way.

Don't take me wrong : FS2 is technologically superior, but considering that they could have made a lot more out of it.

Of course it could pretty much be Intergay's fault.

It would be hard for whatever was produced to not be a let down. We've all had years of wanting it and thinking up cool stuff to do in the mean time... not to mention so many theories and so on. Living up to that kind of expectation is - while not impossible - tricky.

Hell, if they had actually advertised it a bit, we might be piling into download sites to get the FS4 demo.:D

That's pretty much what I was on about. The advertising for FS2 was virtually non-existant.

Someone please put them in a time capsule.

If you want something to be forgotten and never again found you put it into a time capsule.

It's the most uncommon places where people find old stuff...
