Flight Simulator X: Acceleration releases to manufacturing

My second project at ACES Studio, the Flight Simulator X: Acceleration expansion pack, has gone gold. Well, 12.5 percent of it has: We sent the English release to manufacturing but we have seven more languages we’re shipping over the next couple of weeks. So while the extra-long days are a bit more normal now, the weekends are still fairly busy, coordinating builds and releases with our international folks in Dublin and Tokyo.

Acceleration was a “small” release, but only by the standards of a 14GB, two-DVD Flight Simulator X. Here are some mildly interesting statistics:
