I am enjoying Flight the same way Roger - I didn't have a nice scenery pack for Hawaii in FSX, and I love a good Stearman, Flight gives me both with better frame rates than FSX and I didnt have to buy anything...and I still have FSX
...using my Thrustmaster T16000 twisty stick - good to go right off the bat
when it comes to all the fussing about Flight - I have to wonder if all these folks are using a 30GB hard drive...they make 'em way bigger now -just sayin
..enter, the Sandman...
So, currently (and i highly doubt it will ever happen), Flight is a MS ball(or like my wife likes to call, a MS raincoat festival), MS dictates what should be developed, and how it should look, with all the responsibilities of such production in one single company, under the promise of millions of units of DLC per year...Or so the legend goes..
Did they cut the freeware developer out of the party? so far the did...with no signs of this changing in the future
Is this a MS payware fest? yup, never mind what you want, they decide for you..
Will Flight eventually evolve into something we can relate to previous titles? pray for Flightīs current vision demise, iīm sure if things donīt go the MS way, they will eventually listen and do what the crowds want, iīm not crossing my fingers, because even so, they wont look at us as an option(the 3rd party dev).
Now, sure, Flight is not for everyone, and yes in some way, itīs kinda entertaining, the same way HAWXS is, for me, itīs like an alternate title,
I don't understand how MS thought that people would purchase add-ons for Flight instead of buying FSX and downloading all the add-ons they want. The business model doesn't make any sense to me unless the target audience is people who've never heard of FSX. It might work, but I doubt it.
And there wont be ANY rush of 3rd party developers createing new aircraft or scenery for flight, MS has locked it down good n tight, cant be haveing anyone competing with MS now can we! :mixedsmi:So far I am not hearing 3rd party developers rushing to create new aircraft, so I'm treating Flight as a beta.
yes i know i cant spell half the time! Thank you kindly to those few who pointed that out
I for one, think that all future 'Flight' threads should be moved to the Flight forum. We had our curiosity peeked and now we have had it satisfied. We FSXers know what Flight can do and what it is. so, let the Flight fans discussed the details in the Flight forum.
On another note, for those who wish to fly Oahu VFR in FSX, I think it is Aerosoft who makes a decent scenery add-on? I bought it a while back and flew around the island. I wish someone would do a detailed scenery add on for the rest of he islands. I would buy the package.
Now, I don't know if you can get out and walk around?

Hi,Those trying the new FLIGHT will you please tell me:
1) if FS9 and/or FSX portover aircraft, including helicopters, will work on flight?
2) is there a "mission"component to FLIGHT as it is in FSX?
Thank you and enjoy,
2.- Depends, missions here are called "adventures" and gives you rewards, or you can go hunting gold medals for points, but as up today, no rescue missions, dangerous airports approachs etc, nop none of that.
BTW, i was a beta tester, been a beta tester with MS since FS9 days, Flight RTM is pretty much the Beta that was released, with some minor fixes to too obvious bugs.
