If there are birds, will there be birdstrike damage? Can you imagine one hitting your windshield?

There is a short video on the main MSFS website, showing a mission of a heli rescue as well as an aircraft flying low in Africa, where there are elephants walking along!!

ok I guess it's my turn to start spreading negativity throughout this WONDERFUL AND DELIGHTFUL THREAD.
FSX sucks. why?

1. BECAUSE THE CESSNA'S FLAPS ONLY WORK ON THE RIGHT SIDE!
2. There are no jets (except for a 747 without landing gear)
3. It won't look nearly as good as that anyway. Those screens are shots of how it will look when you have the best PC in the world and 500000 addons.

ok tnx for your attention, you can now continue admiring FSX

You should remember, like HMS said, that the product hasn't been released yet, and is still being worked on. I'm sure when its released the 747 will have landing gear and other such bugs will be ironed out Wink

I don't Razz besides, it's more challenging to land without the gear, so maybe it's a good thing. And it's also more challenging to land with flaps on only one of the wings, isn't it? I think we all agree --->

CONCLUSION: FSX will be more challenging than FS9.

yay

edit: even more challenging things!

Birds - we will have to dodge birds every flight to avoid engine failures

Animals - upon emergency landings (which will occur more frequently considering all these new challenges) we will have to dodge elephants to avoid crushing our planes

New sun reflection effect - it will be hard to see properly because the sun will flash our eyes and blind us. In other words, it will be impossible to land manually by using visual reference. FMC will be needed!

More buildings - It will be impossible to fly low because of all the new skyscrapers and all the other cute additions to the game.

Isn't this flying??? Question Very Happy
Finally some complete realism.
It won't be IMPOSSIBLE to fly low,and if there will be building and skyscrapers,so much more the reason to do so. Wink
It's just making it more REAL

That screenie of the truck racing the extra 300 is so cool!I remember seeing that race on discovery,complete with a doc about the truck.It has a jet engine and can get to speeds of something like 1000kph.
It seems fsx will be more for everybody:
more like my"kind" of flying-short and fun,but also for short distance hoppers,and for range fliers.
