what flight sims do you own?
« on: September 16, 2011, 01:34:15 pm »
Hi,

I was just wondering how many people here enjoy flight sims and which ones. So I posted this.


I own:

MS FS 2002
YSFlight (with MANY realism packs)
FlightGear (too slow for my liking)
GE flight (online)

I've also done the in-browser thing, but whenever I used in a browser that wasn't IE it would crash (paradoxic, i know)

I'm in the in-browser thing right now...
It seems more stable in FF6 ;D
Hasn't crashed as of yet.

Scratch that, it just smached, freezing up the entire browser for about a full minute before a warning popped up saying unresponsive script :\

It keeps lagging tho..kind of distracting x.x

Google Earth FTW! I used it with a joystick one time and it was pretty sweet.

Google Earth, but I don't use it much, it's so hard to control O.O

Ace Combat Games were really fun.

I don't own any, but I've played different versions of MS flight simulator, and Ace combat a bit as well.

How did I guess who was the creator of the topic ? :P

I don't own any. Never tried in fact. Seems fun !
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE
Sorry if I answer with something that seems unrelated, English is not my primary language and I might not have understood well. Sorry if I make English mistakes too.

I haven't had many problems with the Google Earth one, tho it's easier to use the one that isn't the jet. (the jet's a lot more touchy with the controls)


I actually had some fun with that one, putting the pin thingies around, labeling nearby runways (including but not limited to my high school's field and street :P)

I actually got a road removed from google maps/earth :D I don't need GPS devices telling people to use my driveway as a public road. (It goes through to the street behind, but it is private property and often has lots of boards with nails, potholes which would only get worse, etc.)
