    Aerofly FS2 (military) Screenshots Here

    Thanks for opening this forum!
    At this stage the sim is in Early Access, and there are plenty of bits to come.
    But we can start looking:









    These are off Catalina Island, stock scenery and plane.

    But of course, if you want the Real Deal, put on an Oculus Rift and enter a whole new world

    Stock San Diego, aircraft









    USS Eisenhower is user-created DLC


  3. #3
    Hello Wing_Z,
    That Eisenhower looks very nice! I am thinking of buying AF2, Can you tell me what is needed beyond the default sim to make carrier landings possible? Where can the Eisenhower be obtained? And is there also a WWII carrier for the Corsair to use?
    Thank you and best regards,
    Stickshaker

    Hi Stickshaker,

    I can answer some of the questions you have. There is not currently a WW2 carrier, although I expect someone will create one sooner or later. TBH I am not certain about the actual carrier capabilities such as traps and launches, I also need to look in to that. The F/A-18 is a default aircraft and is very nice visually and to fly. There are also quite a number of free addons such as scenery packages (as DLC from the Steam store/Aerofly page) and user created addons such as Point Mugu, the USS Eisenhower and more user created addons.

    The Eisenhower can be obtained from the Aerofly forum, along with other scenery objects and repaints.

    You will need to register.

    Thank you, Scotth6. Very useful. I took a look at the freeware addons and there are in fact several carriers. I see myself acquiring Aerofly FS2 before long.
    Best regards,
    Stickshaker

    Bear in mind the sim is a WIP so there's lots of stuff that might be called a placeholder.
    Do not expect working carrier ops just yet, but who knows what happens tomorrow?
    That's part of the attraction for me.
    Anyhow, a few more screens in northern California.
    I said above it is stock: it is in fact DLC but free.





    This sim handles light better than any I've seen so far.

    Beautiful shots, Wing_Z! Judging by the screenshots, FS2 seems to look better than even P3Dv4.

    Thanks!
    I'd agree that the stuff that's "Done" is pretty much state of the art, but there's much work to be done on things like Weather etc.
    All in good time, I love just jumping into the sim and having a look at what's there.

    OK we have quite a few views of this thread...

    so here's a bunch more:

    Very nice shots indeed! I am waiting for my example of FS 2. Is the gyroscopic effect of the Camel’s rotary engine modeled?

    Yes under power on the ground you can very easily end up pointing the way you came...
    I believe they killed more pilots in training than in combat!

    That is also what I read. Excellent news! I am waiting even more eagerly for my FS 2 now!

    Ah yes, the well-known F-15 "Flanker"
    Nice.
    Have we left anything out?

    Enjoying the central Nevada view from FL680, stock-from-the-box AFS2...






    The original screenshots were 5760 x 1080 rez, the sim displayed across 3 monitors.

    No the sim is not dead, just quietly under development

    Had a fly around Montery by ORBX.
    Herewith a few:

    Great shots!

    I do all of my Aerofly flying in VR (Rift), so my screenshots don't look so great. I have been having a ball around Colorado, Utah, California in the F-15 recently. It is light on the systems, but it looks so cool and flies so well it doesn't matter.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Scott! I occasionally rent a Rift just to get reminded of how good the VR feels.
    When they release the Hi-res version I will become an owner (and addict probably).

    I've been using TrackIR which is also quite immersive.
    Sadly after a recent WIN10 update, it stopped working

    Jv at orbx announced that Aerofly TureEarth Netherlands is coming along great (pictures soon) and has still has the great FPS Aerofly is known for. Which means get ready for Netherlands VR!
    Hi

    Loving Aerofly… I think I would use it more often if there was more choice of things I like to fly, but what is there is second to none... particularly like the F4U Corsair.
