In 1984, Microsoft released their version 2 of Microsoft Flight Simulator for IBM PCs. This version made small improvements to MSFS1, including the graphics and a more precise simulation in general. It added joystick and mouse input, as well as support for RGB monitors (4-color CGA graphics), the IBM PCjr, and in later versions, Hercules graphics, and LCD displays for laptops. The new simulator expanded the scenery coverage to include a model of the entire United States, although the airports were limited to the same areas as in MSFS1. Over the next year or two, compatibility with subLOGIC Scenery Disks was provided, gradually covering the whole USA, Hawaii, Japan, and part of Europe.
