I've downloaded it "again". I've tried it last year (3.0 I think) and I was not conformtable with it. But this time, I told myself "Plz try it more than one shot" and I listened to myself!

 

I admit that more I use it, more I like (Love?) it and what a nice weather engine !!!! This is IMHO, the most realistic (stock) sky / fog ambiance i've ever experienced.

 

This FG beast will stay on my hard drive

Great to see FG continuing to be developed. Every version makes it more enjoyable to fly. Thanks also for the vid.

I have downloaded all the previous versions and installed all previous FlightGear and then uninstalled them because they were not a good as FSX. Is  this version better?

Complex question :-)

 

Well, actually, there are many possible answers... From the flight dynamics PoV, FG has the same and actually more potential than MSFS, specially if used with the JSBsim framework. As you certainly know, in FG you can use 2nd order derivates for Cl, Cd, ..., so, if you have access to good aero data, at least theoretically you can come up with more detailed and realistic flight dynamics....

 

Unfortunately only a couple of the many aircraft models I tried for FG really convinced me of this potential, but I still find FG a promising platform.

 

Graphically, IMHO, it can't still compete with the best available for FSX, or X-Plane 10.

It seem a simple question to me. I shalln't  bother downloading - it's still seems to be a matter of hope against experience.

That's what i was thinking also. I did a first try and said: Nah! it's not good. But I've keep trying and found out it's not that bad and now i'm find myself using it more and more. As JRcomm mentioned: It doesn't have the bells and whistles of a FS or an X-Plane in term of graphical entertainment, but the realism is there, especially the weather and sky rendition and that's the reason I appreciate it.

 

This is not for the casual simmers who wants a "world and life and everything spectacular" simulator
