LOVING IT!

Recommended Posts

Working B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L-L-Y , but still not with my home hardware.... because I am still testing it in an old laptop, and it runs all MAXED OUT!!! That's next test, installing in my home pc, now void of any other sims...

 

Love the graphics and the default aircraft

 

Love the UI

 

Love the scenery and the aircraft flight dynamics, even being default.

 

And EVEN MY LPMN  ( just recently inaugurated ) is there !!!!!

 

Airports are updated - just checked EDDF and it has the new 25R / 07L

 

I couldn't ask for more, specially because I knew what it wouldn't have, so, I am really ver satisfied so far.

 

I don't mind at all not having real world weather and the scenarios work just as good as in FSX. Of course I look forward for detailled weather in their upcoming flight sim.

HumptyDumpty -

SO shud I buy it ?

 

As many have said, we've bought aircraft at more than twice the price that we never fly.

For $15 it helps DoveTail and it's fun.

 

Flown about for 45 minutes in free flight, I'm enjoying it. The flight model does feel better than FSX default.

 

Anyone flown in the thunderstorm yet? It's a blast.

Unless you are very curious, like me, and just want to see what DT has done, then NO. If you own FSX or P3D there is nothing here that is worth it at any price.

 

The graphics are a dogs dinner, which is very sad.

 

I just hope DT listen and do better for the full FS. Its need a lot of work that's for sure.

FSX it's out the window.  P3d not for me, maybe in the future.

 

I use Xplane and DCS.  

 

Xplane at least gives me what I always wanted, near to real geolocated stuff.   NO DEBATES PLEASE ANYONE.

 

Lets wait for a few days, definitely screens and stuff will show up.

From now on, and until DTG Flight Sim gets released, DTG will be my only sim...

 

That pretty much expresses my opinion :-)

Just a heads up, you really can't come on to a public forum and state your opinion/point of view then state in bold "NO DEBATES PLEASE ANYONE."

That's not how it works, either be prepared to debate and defend your position (polity) or just don't post.

I agree the sim itself doesn't really add anything for the simmer who already has FSX, P3D or X-Plane.

But like everyone else, I was curious. I had to see the sim in action. It gives us a rough idea of what their full flight sim will be like in terms of user-interface, design, rendering techniques etc. It's also a great way for DTG to collect feedback.

Theres no big WOW factor but it is very smooth, and has alot of potential. My lessons flights were using 5.7GB of VAS lol.

 

Lots of things need improvement, including the instructor. But hey P3D V1 sucked and so did FSX in its infant stages. I wouldnt say it sucks, but the teething process ha begun.

It says "installing..." but I never gave it a drive to install.. 

 

It better not be installing on my c drive.

So you are going to fly around in what is essentially stock FSX with Orbx Global for the next 6-12 months with three moderately modeled airplanes, no real weather, no add-on airports, etc.?

 

Call me skeptical, but I think you'll have it uninstalled by next month.  :P

They seem to be on the right track, but they have a lot of work ahead of them.

 

Remember that Prepar3D v1 came out in 2010 and it was just FSX with a few minor tweaks and fixes. It wasn't until P3D v2 came out in late 2013 that major changes were made to the graphics engine, such as DX11, real-time shadows, HDR etc. Even then, it took almost another year before they had sorted out all the glitches and bugs they introduced with that new graphics engine. So it basically took them 3-4 years to implement a fully featured DX11 engine, and it's still 32-bit. DTG have not worked on their sim for 3-4 years, so it's not entirely reasonable to expect them to match P3D v3 yet.

We tend to compare DTG FS to Prepar3D, but we need to remember that they're building upon FSX, not P3D. They have to re-invent the wheel in many cases since they can't use the code LM implemented.

I like it too...somehow.

The feeling is good, although flight physics are a step back since MS Flight also the graphics look even more oudated.

Sound is great and preformance good. I also like the "career" and achievements.

But as most you already said: Good base but a loong way to go. But for now i bet on DTG.

Tell me what you like - but before going 64 bit with a (buggy code)  the 32 bit should have been sort out - and only than go 64 bit

 

you have to ask yourself who is doing the right thing here:

 

Lockheed Martin  -  or  -  DTG ?

 

i know the answer.

Because expressing a view then making a statement like "NO DEBATES PLEASE ANYONE." says to everyone here "you are going to hear my views but I have no interest in hearing yours"

 

It's a discussion forum, saying "NO DEBATES PLEASE ANYONE." is not really how we keep the conversation flowing around here.

On the other hand......how many times are we going to accept taking steps backwards with a "new" flight simulator, just because the developer is "new to the game"?

I´m glad I purchased it even though I´ve been FS-ing for years. I think it looks very promising. Sure, there are lots of graphical glitches (dark moon in bright sky, cockpit shadows disconnected from struts, the sharp horizon, ugly clouds) but there´s plenty of time to sort these out for the full sim. This version is already much smoother than the alpha that was released only a few weeks ago, they've made huge strides on that! 

 

The big thing is 64-bit, of course. They've got their priorities right I think: now they can start expanding and improving the graphics engine with a lot more resource headroom.

 

It's a lot of simulator for the price if you're new to flight simming-the target audience.

Frankly I think MS Flight looks better and the flight physics are better and it's free.

I have never used STEAM before... But I feel claustrophobic with this "Steam" and adding "games" to it. I do not know what is going on.

 

It says "performing first time task"

 

installing MS VC Redist Package 2 of 3 and I see a spinning cursor

 

IS it stuck or is it installing? Any ideas?

 

its been like that for a while now...

 

Edited to Add: OK It completed.

 

So I have to go to steam and then "play game' .... no exe file for Flight school...k..
