Another interesting sim

Recommended Posts

Saw this yesterday posted by "Chock" (Al Bradbury) in the PMDG forum. Its set to be a helicopter sim, but it looks pretty cool after watching the video and looking at the screen shots. Makes you wonder how Flight will stack up against it as far as scenery and weather. You never know, maybe this one could expand into something greater down the line as well. http://takeonthegame.com/

Looks good, but based on their own information it isn't going to be a real world sim:
Take to the air above two beautifully rich and expansive environments, based upon real-world North American and South Asian terrain-data.
off course that makes it much more manageable for the designers.

Rumor to be something like Simcopter on the ARMA2 Engine. If ARMA 2 is any indication it will probably be arcade style flying.

From what I know for sure about it, the choppers will have an easy mode scaleable up to a more complex mode, including starting it up reasonably realistically and modeling some realistic aspects of a chopper's flight characteristics, and whilst is is the developer's intention to make it accessible to a range of players, they have said they want the thing to handle pretty realistically, more so than the choppers do in ARMA etc, i.e. the throttle and collective will be modeled as opposed to simply the collective being combined with the throttle as it is in ARMA, so it'll have more in common with the Dodosim 206 than it will with ARMA, and the developers actually mentioned the Dodo 206 when they said as much in an interview.The game itself has a story line of sorts: your dad started a helicopter business some years back and hands it on to you, but it is on its &@($* and you have to pull it back into shape, which is where the game name comes from as you have to grab the reigns of the business and 'take on helicopters'. The jobs you can do to get the business back on its feet will include everything from helping to search for criminals from the air in co-operation with the police, to simple cargo and passenger runs.I suspect it will be fun and fairly 'sim-like' without taking it to rivet-counting levels of realism, which is a good combination if you ask me. Chopper sims such as 1C's Apache Air Assault and Whirlwind Of Vietnam take the same approach, and to be honest, I think WoV has one of the most believable chopper flight models of any sim, including FSX, so if it comes anywhere near that, it'll be no bad thing. Put it this way, it'll have to really suck big time for me to not buy it.Al

Graphics looked amazing, particularly the clouds and their movement.

Maybe there will be some after-market airplane add-ons for it. Raised%20Eyebrow.gif
