There we have it, been Flight Simming for 20 years now!!! 😀
1987? Air Warrior II Interactive Magic
Have you tried x-plane 8 I seen some screnshots and the panels look better than fs9 and there scenery is nearly as good they are definitly catching up with msfs!!I have only ever played flight unlimited 2 (I love that sim still play it sometimes) and fs9.
X-Plane8...........well im gonna give it a miss as i have spent so much money and time on downloads & addons for FS2004 , making sure its all set up right with Graphics settings, AI Traffic, aircraft, scenery addons etc etc,.
I have finally got FS2004 running just the way I want it too , i really cant be bothered looking at starting all over again, not until FS2006 comes out anyway.
But....i have heard XPlane 8 has got good graphics but there would have to be alot more crumbs than that to drag me away from Microsofts table.
STARTING ALL OVER WITH ADDONS FOR FS06
Brooks and Dunn
I started with Flight Simulator on the Sinclair ZX81 then games like Night Flight and Night Flight 2. Chuck Yeager's Flight Trainer was pretty good too.
I've played a game on the Commodore 64 that was like a jet fighter game, anyone know what it was? It was liek 5 yesr ago
sorppy, i achtn toep todduy
For me I have done the following:
Fighter Pilot - ZX Spectrum
Tommohawk - ZX Spectrum
FS5.1 (still have software)
FS98 (still have software)
FS2000 (still have software)
FS2002 (still have software)
Computer games come and go but Flight Sim just gets better and as real as you want it to be.
I agree with you sonicninja no flight sim beets fs9 especially if you have a amazing computer.
Chuck Yeager......now theres a game from the past on the ZX Spectrum, ooo how I miss those "See Through" graphics!!!!
I'd forgotten all about Poor Old Chucks Flight Sim, i had that one too
