I was wandering through Wal-Mart today and noticed a copy of X-Plane 9. From reading the box it appears it is comparable to FSX with a few twists to it.
It has over 60gigs of content that installs and looked more detailed than FSX (detailed but not geographically accurated for landmarks). Carrier landings and launches on pitching rolling decks, space shuttle entry and landings, volumetric fog effects, REALISTIC FLIGHT MODEL (could this be true).
any who, the game was $40 or $50 which looks like a good deal for what you get. Seems newer and better supported and updated than MS flight sims from what I read.
My question is to anyone that has X-PLANE 9 (not 8,7,6...)
Is the flight model better than FSX and is there damage modeling? This is all I really care about. Stalls, spins, turbulence, launchavocs(sp), crosswinds.....
