HiFlyer

The world of Flight as seen from orbit!

Recommended Posts

Following the exploits of a fellow flyer who used the uncontrollable spin (left his machine on overnight) to gain some excessive altitude. As you can see, flights earth is definitely round, and could those be continents in the distance?

 

The clouds still bite, though.......

Devon,

 

what "exploit" exactly are you talking about? Do you mean he got this high by spinning and then starting to climb, like in that weird behaviour I reported in another thread telling I was mad at FLIGHT for that :-) ?

 

I'm curious...

 

Or did he use one of those tweaked situations that already put you at some extraordinary altitude?


Flight Simulation is the Virtual Materialization of a Dream...

Uninstalling flightsims is a temptation I can never resist...

Its apparently become a popular trick. People claim to be trying to see if they can reach the moon!

Probably need a space shuttle. Planes act very whacky up there with no air, though the dive record is pretty easy to reach from that height! (good thing there is no damage modeling and plane break-up!)

 

Interestingly enough, another trend as people try to amuse themselves waiting for worthy DLC is that people are spreading out far and wide from the islands, looking for obscure geographic locations. Its getting almost as common to see people out in the middle of the ocean as over Hawaii.

 

One guy last night was earnestly searching for Midway. Good luck going over 1000nm when he was reporting 47% fuel remaining on his Zero.

 

Did I mention multiplayer was interesting?
