Great Role Play

Recommended Posts

My 152 low on gas during my Nile tour (Asobo really need to address fuel consumption on the GA aircraft), I identified an airfield from the pop up map, vectored across and landed. Got a parking spot from ground and made my way over. Called up services and requested fuel, expecting my tank just to magically refill. Instead, I got a message that a fuel truck was on its way. After a minute or two, sure enough came into sight a tanker lorry which eventually stopped alongside. Admittedly at that point the pop up window appeared, no guy actually connecting a hose to the plane but, hey ho. Once complete, dismissed the truck and got a take off slot from ground, taxied out to the active and away.

I did have one anxious moment during takeoff as it looked like my visual flightplan had defaulted back to WP1 but once airborne, the marker jumped back to WP8.

It's little touches like that which make you smile and quite start to like what MS/Asobo have created here.

That sure is a nice and funny story.

I admire your patience with the two minues waiting time before something happened ... I would have quit after 12 seconds, thinking it was stuck.
