Can this scenario actually be considered "modern"? The game world starts about 17 years before real life today so it seems like it could hardly be considered "modern". And by As I recall, the previous MT started in the mid 2000's and ended in 2025.
By starting it sooner like it is now, the game seems to essentially render an entire era of new planes, the Bombardier CSeries, A350s, and borderline the B787, Mitsubishi Regional jets if it comes out a bit later than RL, useless.
Just food for thought.
