lol, good little clip that demonstrates on of the many reasons I'd rather fly this instead of MS Flight Simulator 9. As far as ground mapping and weather goes it's tough to beat, but when it comes to flight models, it doesn't even come close.

That might not be fair. There is a choice in the sim to enable or disable the aircraft stress realism. I broke a 777 the other day just going over the proper AOA at high speed. Also, the plane in the video was not a stock plane. Add-ons can be notoriously unrealistic.

I just got FS2004 two weeks ago and bought the MegaScenery Pacific North-West add-on scenery and let me tell you, it's a blast. Just flying and landing (properly) in a Cessna 172 on a windy day can be a true challenge. And the eye candy with the MegaScenery is outstanding! Probably the best terrain for flight sims period. Check out the site at megascenery.com The stuff is expensive but pretty ****ed nice. To dogfight over terrain like that would be unbelievable! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

How nice is this?

All in all FS2004 is great. And it's a veritable treasure chest of flight schooling. You should not dismiss it just because you can't shoot anyone in it. Try landing a 747 during a nasty thunderstorm at night in high winds. All your humility will come bubling to the surface reeeeeal quick. And it looks cool too. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Lock On: Modern Air Combat has the best terrain. Macrocruft Flight Simulator has good terrain at high altitudes in specific areas, but when you get down low, it's hideous.

I agree, Lock On has fantastic terrain. Sometimes I'll fly just for the sake of sightseeing.

But do check out megascenery.com. I think you'll be impressed by some of what they have.

I find that once people get past the Macrosuck company name and the fact that there's no shooting, they find that the whole MS FS series are very good flight sims. And anyone who thinks they're a hot shot sim pilot might find themselves humbled by some of the challenges in FS2004.

I enjoy the mix of FS2004 and Il2. They complement each other very well. If nothing else, I'm learning more about flying. And flying is what it's all about. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I actually don't dislike it for the Macrocruft brand. I own all but the last Flight Simulator, and played them since the early nineties. I grew up on it!

However, Flight Simulator did not move with the times, either graphically or physically. The flight models are a joke. In the last version I used (two thousand and two), accelerated stalls were not even modelled.

Flight Simulator is very unrealistic. And this time, no one can say, "You've never flown a real one so you can't know." Do you know when I stopped using Flight Simulator? It was when I came down from my first flight lesson. I realised how sadly lacking the attempted simulator was.
