Hmmm...does look a little off-scale when compared to the others, doesn't it? :hmmm:

Anyway...I've found a conspiracy!
Every time I take a jetliner to Europe and try to land at an airport, it's either raining or it's foggy...I can't see the damn airport until I'm almost on top of it and wind up smashing into the runway at 280kts. :damn:

Bad day. Just when I turned to the airfield for a landing engine decided to choke and I had to land to that little strip of land. The results of the landing looks actually similar to landings to the runway and with an intact airplane.. :hmmm:

If you have to land a fighter somewhere in the nature you should do a belly landing. Even if you manage to set the plane down nicely on the wheels, the bumpy ground is very likely to flip you over sooner or later.

Hmm, why did I not remember that.. Thank you, Schroeder!

Bugger me...they look good. MS is going to regret killing off FS. :yep:

GSpector 08-16-10 11:52 PM

W:oW, X-Plane is really stepping up the game. I was so not impressed with X-Plane 9's World graphics but those screes are awsome.:D

Ubergeek87 08-17-10 12:19 AM

Yeah, I've also heard a rumor that there will be terminal buildings at some airports.

Flight Sim returns!

Arclight 08-17-10 05:14 AM

Yes, that was uncanny. :hmmm:

Wonder if it's a sim though, or what level of detail.

HunterICX 08-17-10 06:16 AM

They left out Simulator in their title.....:hmmm: perhaps they decided to go with a new title...or does it have a meaning.

What's the point of a non-sim FS? Flying around for no apparent reason?

I think they're just changing the title because it sounds less technical.

Arclight 08-17-10 06:40 AM

"Social" seems to be the key word here, not "simulation".

I'm guessing they want to attract a bigger audience, jumping on the social networking bandwagon. Though there might still be a simulator somewhere in there, maybe a switch between "casual" and "simulation" like in DCS. :hmmm:

Raptor1 08-17-10 06:45 AM

So far there are apparently no details about it at all, so let's wait and see how it turns out. If they refrain from using words like 'accessible' we still have a chance.

Arclight 08-17-10 07:05 AM

Always a chance, sure.

They're not saying "accesible", but things like "inspired by", "compelling socially connected gameplay " and "reinventing".

I dun' want no reinvented, socially connected game inspired by FS. I jus' wants another Flight Simulator. :-?


It's tied to GFWL, so it doesn't exactly get the benefit of my doubt. :lol:

GSpector 08-17-10 07:23 AM

I just hope there is some kind of a carrer aspect to it but not manditory internet connection where I have to be social. Choosing to be s one thing but saying I can play unless I play with others always bothered me with a lot of the new titles Like Americas Army 3, Rise of Flight and I think DCS Black Shark also requires internet connections.

Arclight 08-17-10 07:41 AM

DCS? Nuhuh, 1 time activation for the DRM and yer done. ;)

Pain in the bottom, but it could be worse.

* think they patched RoF to the same system.

Crécy 08-19-10 01:40 PM

Another happy landing!
