Aerofly ! It looks VERY nice indeed

Recommended Posts

HelloFirst YES! I know this is the fs2004 forum ....I have just had a quick look at the Aerofly videos, and what i see is VERY impressive.I know its only Switzerland (at the moment?)But I most certainly would be tempted .Unfortunately my PC is below (by some way the minimum spec) so tempted is as far as it goes.Its not FS as we know it Jim!Heck Scotty ! ive got FS9 alreadyso that's no problem.If its a good sim its worth having two (or many)Seems well priced.to.Will be interested to see how its reviewed.Beautiful looking scenery.Anyways take cover Horatiowait for negative mongers

http://forum.avsim.n...ofly-simulator/ Looks very promising, scenery looks beautiful from the vids but VERY VERY over simplified... Read the review in that link,Sort of like a Take On helicopters for flying without the systems realism...And of course, anyone that has anything bad to say is a negative monger :( very positive way to inspire open conversation...

Aerofly have been in RC simulation game for some time I believe. Looks like they have made the models full size now. Not sure what sort of systems are simulated though. The scenery is certainly pretty. :)

It does look nice but before this simulator gets a lot of complex airliners, navigraph support, hundreds of addon airports, ultimate terrain, ATC, weather and flightplanning tools (to mention some stuff) I will be retired.Plus who is willing to give me a good credit to start the purchasing story once again*? :(* I actually think the same about Flight, Prepar3D, X-Plane, etc

LMAO!!!OK, I am officially embarrassed to say that one of the mirrors in my master bath upstairs is actually a hidden heated LCD TV so it doesn't not fog in the shower. (also has waterproof remote for shower) One of the inputs is indeed a wireless recv'r from my flightsim machine so I can monitor the flightdeck if I decide to shower mid-flight. And Emirates thought they were the first to offer a shower mid-flight!!! Talk%20to%20the%20Hand.gifYes, I am single LMAO! :(

Yes, I am single
I am a bigamist. Married to a woman and a flightsim.My wife is aware the other relationship is (a bit) older.But, good for both, I'm not gonna exchange either for a younger version!

Hi Gerry,Very much so! I didn't intend to do that with the heated mirror/tv (I like having the news on in the am as I shower/shave and get ready for work) The wireless video card to tv adapter was originally for my laptop but it wasn't long before I figured hmmm I wonder if I could see my fs system from the shower... then it was pretty cool to put fs on a wingview, hop in the shower and shower at fl 370 or to be able to monitor the flightdeck in the event I need to step into the lieu :)So yes to serious and single is self explanatory lmao!

"And now," as they say in Monty Python, "for something completely different!"It seems a bit premature to get into too much of a "discussion" (or argument depending on your definition) about the merits of a new sim that hasn't yet been released. But from what I saw of the video, it seemed to me to be a breathtaking simulation of the joys of VFR flight in a simple, beautiful GA aircraft. Even if it does no more than that, it is still a significant addition to our hobby.After all guys, how else did any of us in the real world get started?I don't think we need to compare apples to oranges - both are delicious in their own way. If all the Aerofly sim does is give people a chance to learn stick and rudder skills while looking at gorgeous scenery, then I'm for it. And I'm guessing that some serious aerobatics would be in the mix too! As much as I love FS9 and will stick with it for many more years, I can't wait to make that flight that is shown in the video. After all, been there, done that --- and would love to do it again, even if it is 'virtual.' Looks closer to real than anything else I've ever seenJust my humble opinion my friendsIan

You are absolutely right. Plus you have brought back my memories... 105.gifI have learned to fly in one like below, how about you, guys? Show me your first birds!bociek.jpgAnd yes, of course, Ian, a good looking GA simulation with right physics of flight is something to be enjoyed by many.I just, personally, prefer riding jet engines today, probably because I have not managed to reach it in my RL, so the sim is my dreamed escape, lol.FS9 is, and will always remain, a marvelous platform for airliners flying, learning systems, navigation, visiting world's airports, etc. If I were a GA freak, I might switch to FSX or this one.See you in the air!

Hi RafalI will try to find a photo I can upload of my first RL aircraft, though back then the camera had just been invented... LOL If the new sim is as good as it looks in the video (not guaranteed of course) then in addition to just VFR cruising or basic "virtual" flight training, it might be fabulous for some other things like STOL bush and mountain ops, aerobatics, crop dusting etc. All of those (except aerobatics and Aerosoft's Leuka scenery) are not very immersive in FS9 for me as the depth of the scenery is just not there. So this may open up a number of new dimensions for the sim enthusiasts out there... FPS will be THE issue for me - if it's not visually smooth, it's not "flying."Ian

No worries, Ian. The above one is not my original photo either, just the same type.My original gliding pictures were slides, old enough now to start natural degradation. Big%20Grin.gif

LOL - yeah, I have an awful lot of great 35 MM slides that I haven't been able to look at in decades.... Every now and then I've looked into having them digitalized but the cost is downright mind-boggling and so I never follow through on it

Going back to the original topic, I received my copy of Aerofly FS today and got to say while it's extremely good fun and graphically pleasing it's no real simulator but I do think it has the potential to be a great simulator.Unfortunately you can't use any of the controls in the VC and I can't set my throttle quadrant up properly to use the mixture lever which seems a bit odd, unless I'm missing something, Aerofly FS on the other hand is missing a lot when it comes to simulation, however the planes are great to fly and in full screen view with no cockpit visible, fully zoomed out you really do get the sense of being up high in the sky and boy is it fast.So my conclusion of this little report is, it's worth getting for the fun factor and hopefully it'll have a bright future but it's no replacement for FS9, FSX or X-Plane as yet, but if they get enough support well anything's possible.I'll try and do some videos and post a link when I do, maybe after I've read the manual a bit more I may find there's more to it than meets the eye.CheersMartin.PS. I'm running it on an AMD Phenom II X4 at 3.5ghz with a Saphire Radeon 5770 and 4gb 1333mhz Memory and getting pretty much 60FPS all the time, however when I activated some weather conditions I still got an high FPS but also got some serious pauses not stutters, the whole thing would stop for a second then continue which just made it awful to fly.

It sounds promising Martin - even though it's not what we would all want, it may have a great future as you said. After all, who would have predicted MS FS would become what it now is? Back when I first saw it, I thought it was totally pathetic.... Thanks for the update - I am sure there are many of us who will be watching and waiting. In my case, I seriously doubt my machine could handle it, but some time this year I will probably be buying a new PC so who knowsCheersIan

Followed the links, watched the video, got intrerested - but why does almost every developer seem to think gay disco appropriate for fly-sim videos? Surely only 10% of us would appreciuate it.

From what I've seen from the vids, they look unbelievable! Beautifully rendered terrain with amazing mesh resolution. However, IMO, I can't help feeling it is all eye candy and no soul. Don't know why, I just do. I just feel it's a bit gamey. Again, don't know why, but, without doubt beautifully put together. I'll wager it will lack the soul in both the aircraft designs and dynamics that we all crave so much for.
