State of the art 1980's Flight Simulation....

Recommended Posts

Though this Evans & Sutherland CT5 was once millions of dollars of state of the art futuristic technology, this poor thing would be laughed off the forums nowadays as "not a sim"

Where are the 5 levels of clouds, The ai? etc, etc..... :ha:

How times change.

I wonder what the future will make of our current state of the art, as they plug their Matrix style neural simulation connections into their brains.

True - if it was just a sim on a 19 inch monitor then it would be scorned. However, a full motion sim complete with windows in the floor (CH-46) !? I wonder if there are any helicopter simmers these days who run that kind of visual setup....?

Lol, I have practiced on a few B200 sims with the projection screen. Have to love the 80's.

True.  Its like nowadays when people say that AFS2 isn't a 'proper' sim.

That sort of thing always raises my eyebrows because first, who gets to define "proper?

For everyone.
