Did you two quit on me!??

I haven't missed an approach or a single landing in a long time now. Got the navigation thing down also :) Flying as realistic as possible.

OOOOOO you so smug......LMAO

No....my main rig is down but as soon as I get it back up and running its the first game I will install....well that and L4D. But I hate that you cannot use DX10 when you download a custom plane and I absolutely love the big big Airbus A380......

I have not got the Nav. sorted yet but I am not too bad. If something silly goes wrong and say I dont get the beeps etc I panic then bit.

But the game is super!!!

I love that airbus....its the sheer size of the thing...and the fact that you cant actually take off from my home airport is so so true to life....lmao.

Have to say some of the missions in the Xcell. pack are mad hard and its nearly impossible to fly some of them helicopters.

Happy 2010 Joshua and welcome back.

Hey I'm curious... what If we were on a situation were we are on an airplane and the pilot is dead, kind of like a Lost episode or Twilight Zone thing. With you playing so many hours with fancy gear and all thats**t, is it possible for you to realistically fly the plain to safety and land it with our lives and limbs intact?

It would deffo help knowing the theory and basics....but I doubt you would be able to land a plane....

TBH,

I installed this game the other day and it runs likes**t on my 5970 for some reason. I did not tweak it I just set up a quick flying session....maxed out I was getting like 30 FPS!!!

I will get around to sorting out my X52s and tweaking it...but yeah I am still flying just, but I still cannot manual navigate.....lol

I have spoken to a few pilots and also read pilot comparisons between Flight Simulators and real life. Well, from everything they told me, it seems as if simulators are actually harder. They commented on several things such as take off, landings and maneuvering and all confirmed that in real life since you get more feedback from the airplane, you understand it more and it becomes easier to control. Combine that with a flight controller, and given a decent amount of knowledge, you should be able to survive, but that of course would depend on the plane and the flying conditions. Taking their comments and watching videos in YouTube, flying does not seem as hard as you may think. Just like anything else you have to train and know your stuff.

It is my understanding that shortly after FSX, Microsoft announced that they disbanded the Flight Simulator team, It's a shame, really.

I am tempted to buy X-Plane. I have been reading reviews for days and almost all praise how realistic X-Plane is.http://www.x-plane.com/desktop/landing/
