Flyinside Simulator

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

Well this new sim has been out now for a couple of days and so far to a dearth of comment or first impressions.

I downloaded it as a demo and found that 7 minutes is nowhere near long enough to set it up, let alone assess positively whether or not to purchase.

First criticism out of the road,  three restarts later I found that I could only load a single throttle, and as I do not generally fly single engine anything when the third restarted finished, I ran out of patience, and decided that I would try again later.

As a result, I have not made a flight as yet and will keep attempting to set it up in the future. I have to now, admit a couple of things. I have yet to venture into the realm of VR, mostly due to cost factors and my download of the new sim was a look and see option.  I also noted that they have a forum for the new sim which you have to register in before you can ask any questions. Not a biggie but I was a little frustrated at the time to pursue that, and I will go down that track, probably tomorrow.

A side note here also is that PIMAX  is taking preorders and the 5k, the VR Headset which I will most likely eventually buy, have released prices and it will retail for approximately USD700 without options like controllers. The 8K is USD900 and the 5k Businesss edition will come with a price tag of USD1000.

So, it was not really a great or encouraging start for me personally, but I do think that it has a great potential if one (read "me") perserveres and that, I will definitely do.

Has anyone else tried this out as yet and how did you fare?

Regards to all

Tony

Haven't tried it myself but after reading the previous topic about this sim and watching some video's of it I won't be trying it anytime soon. it offers nothing that interests me or that I don't have already. In fact, what I have looks a ton better. Maybe in a few years time I wi... no, wait, I already have AFS2 as my in-a-few-years-time-sim and there is only so much a man can handle. ;)

Which naturally implies they will be around in a few years yet.

Kind regards, Michael

Looks like Flyinside is a very similar offering of what Aerofly FS 2 actually has. A lot of people in the flightsim community think Aerofly will probably never be a full developed simulator like P3D or X-Plane, as it’s probably oriented more to be a “game”, rather than a more serious or professional simulator. So, back to Flyinside, I don’t really see how it will have a good future.

just my thoughts.

Cheers, Ed

I own both of them, and actually they are very different in their weaknesses and strenghts (scenery regions, planes/choppers, shaders, landclass vs. photo concept, responsiveness of the devs - yes) etc. Nonetheless, I agree that both will have to go a very, very long way to become full-fledged sims - if ever - and are far from being comparable to either P3D or XP in their present state.

This said, both have a number of outstanding features, e.g. the shaders/lighting of AeroflyFS2 visually look better than any of the others sims (IMHO, of course).

Kind regards, Michael

Ha, yes, my bad, that should have been "my maybe-in-a-few-years-time-sim". 😉

Could not get the demo to activate - just hangs-up with an error message

Perhaps it will not work on FSX-Steam?

The Flyinside Simulator does not rely on FSX-Steam (or any other sim) but is a standalone product. I would suggest asking at their forums, the devs are quite responsive.

I purchased soon after it was released, and have flown intermittently since then.

There are both good and bad things that can be said about it, but like with Aerofly, I have no qualms with waiting and seeing what it might, or might not become.

Nothing stopping me from enjoying other things while I wait!

That being said, my purchase was more to support a new sim and its developers than it was from any particular excitement about the product: but I was also curious enough to part with the asking price of $25 with no remorse.

Especially since I understand that as more features are added, the price for the program will continue to rise. With that in mind it seemed like a good idea to jump in while the jumpings good!
