Does anyone Know how the Navigation in Pacific Fighter is going to be? Today in full real you can navigate looking for reference points in the map (rivers, cities, roads, etc) but in the midle of the ocenan this is going to be a big problem. The only solution that I can think about is flying to some heading at a certain speed for a defined time untill you reach your waypoint. How did real pilots navigate under this circunstances? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

They flew at a precalculated speed, heading & altitude for a precalculated time to get to their waypoint.... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
