Plane spotting: how many planes have you seen yet?

Recommended Posts

I decided to have a look at all the official video's and screenshots to see how many planes are (apparently) ready for MS Flight. I did this also because a lot of people keep on saying that MS Flight only has two planes and that they don't understand why it took MS so long to create just that. Well, as I said I expect a lot of dlc is done already, just waiting for the release of MS Flight. Up to now I found 5 airplanes.1326324172.jpg1326351488.jpg1326371385.jpgI don't think so, but anyone see anymore? BTW When you look at the VC's it's amazing to see how the shadows and lighting look in them...!

Not really, its looks a bit like what FSX with DX10 was meant to be many years ago.

5 is the number. Stearman, Icon, RV-6A, Maule and P-51.The cockpit shot of the Maule is probably my favourite from all the preview screenshots. The sahdow and reflection in the gauges is just beautiful.

Yes, it looks awesome, specially in the video! I hadn't look that good at the shadows etc. yet, but it looks awesome! (And btw completely incomparable with the DX10 preview shadows...) It will really improve the idea of the sun shining! BTW The vc's look a LOT better then the FSX default ones too: they are on par with payware addon planes.

Yes, I have to agree that the shadows and cockpit lighting look very nice indeed.

Where are the B737 and B747 etc?
Jets fly too fast if you only have one island. I kind of knew MS Flight will be Hawaii only early on as there were no fast jets in the preview screenshots. (MS has placed a big emphasis on jets in previous versions of FS. Just have a look at the box art)

It looks OK I guess. Have a look at IL2 Cliffs of Dover as well.

If we should believe flyawaysimulations article default flight wont have any jets, but they are planning to make some in future so you can teleport beetween small islands that Flight will cover.

Who would believe 20 others are ready in the wings or that another 50 were ordered all to the same specification , my guess is Glass Egg Digital Media was used to the terms for providing art assets under contract to MS having done Istanbul and Berlin in Acceleration, it should provide for a homogeneous experience for all involved , with great frame rates and no brand to brand idiosyncrasies, a nice taylor made experience , New Taste Flight Simulation

These cockpit shots are just awesome. Beautiful. Keep in mind it is still MS stuff, what we will see from other passionned 3PD in the store in a few month promise to be amazing.

Ughhh the MS love is thick in here ;)No that one shot is down right gorgeous... It is really too bad they didn't have that in the beta, but I am sure that is a teaser money maker. Imagine a 747 with the same sun glare beaming off of your FMC, as you break below the clouds at a constant 60 FPS on final... Then you see the same airport you just left 5 minutes ago after you already circled the Island ;)...I truely hope they make this better than it first appears, I really do...

They look amazing in screenshots but not so great in-game (videos).

It's entertaining until we come upon yet another of your ranting, negative posts.

I love all the new comers. The only reason you are giving Flight a chance at this point is because you were not drug on for months with screenshots and videos. Everyone asked can we see something other than Hawaii? Microsoft never said anything, they would just release a video and some screenshots a couple months later. Then at the very end they tell us it's not only Hawaii only but a game and not FSnext. Why wouldnt they just come out and tell us 6-8 months ago it was Hawaii only? Because they wanted us to stick with them and not start flaming them for a year before release and cause more damage.

My goodness... it is about time people stop saying MS Flight will be Hawaii only... MS made VERY clear MS Flight will NOT be limited to Hawaii. Yes, the free version will, but the free version isn't the final version... How often do some things have to be repeated before people get it...?

The free version is the final version. Flight is built upon the 'Freemium' model, just like the recent 757 by JustFlight. In the Freemium model there are no different versions. Instead there is something you get for free (the game engine+Hawaii scenery + two planes) and extra modules you have to pay for (other scenery, other planes, etc).With the current information it's not clear whether not buying add-on scenery will mean you have very ugly scenery for parts of the world that are not Hawaii, or whether those parts of the world will not exist at all. A definitive statement either way is pure speculation.
