So who is going to be the first to pay $70 US for Tower Simulator?

Recommended Posts

Do us a favor and tell us how it is when you do ;)I think we all know Feelthere can be hit or miss, it is supported by Wilco, it has limited screenshots including none inside the tower, no docs and no demo.Despite all of this I am still intrigued LOL. Just not enough to pay $70. But if someone else decides too please let us know how it is :)-PaulPrimary RigLiquid CooledIntel C2D E8500 468X9.5 @ 4.45Asus Maximus Extreme2 gigs OCZ Reaper DDR3 @1400Dual OC'd XFX 8800GTX @ 2 gigs24 inch Widescreen LCD 16XAA/16XAFDual 19 inch LCD'sRaid-0+1PCPower and Cooling 1k Quad SLIhttp://home.comcast.net/~psolk/3monitorsa.htmlBackup RigAMD 4000 San Diego @ 2.72 Gigs Kingston Corsair XMS CL2XFX 7900 GTX Raid-0psolk.jpg

The screenshots don't look real good to me...lack of anti aliasing, low resolution ground textures, etc. prevent me from paying $70 for this product. I'd pay MAYBE $35.

Right...No YouTube videos, no demo, nothing but 8 pretty poor screenshots and they want $70?What is up with that?-PPrimary RigLiquid CooledIntel C2D E8500 468X9.5 @ 4.45Asus Maximus Extreme2 gigs OCZ Reaper DDR3 @1400Dual OC'd XFX 8800GTX @ 2 gigs24 inch Widescreen LCD 16XAA/16XAFDual 19 inch LCD'sRaid-0+1PCPower and Cooling 1k Quad SLIhttp://home.comcast.net/~psolk/3monitorsa.htmlBackup RigAMD 4000 San Diego @ 2.72 Gigs Kingston Corsair XMS CL2XFX 7900 GTX Raid-0psolk.jpg

Good lord, for the good of this community pass this one up. Besides, tower controller, how exciting can that be. "cleared for take off, cleared to land, cleared for take off, cleared to land........yawn".

It's made by Feelthere? No thanks! I purchased their Citation X for $50 and the VC looks like it was done by a 5 year old in Microsoft paint - among other problems. Not interested in this 'creation'.Rich.

From the few screenshots available, it looks a little to much like the very old and free Local 1 tower sim (I think it was called).$70 does seem a little to high, and the fact it's a FeelThere/Wilco product, gives me plenty of pause.I too need the extra cash for petrol, especially since the prices in the UK have recently gone past $8/gallon, and seem to be increasing daily.

Dollar Sixty Five a litre here in Sydney. An absolute joke but the UK takes the cake. I think the first person to buy Tower Sim better keep it quiet :-)

I am glad to see people are starting to wake up and see the light of day when it comes to payware companies that rip us off. Pretty much everyone so far has said they wont touch feelthere. GOOD! Its about time WE make the rules and get what we pay for. These guys have pretty much abandoned the bugged airbus and they ask for our money once again? Too bad, so sad Feelthere. I hope you go under! Teach ya right for ripping us off.

Well... just to be a bit contrary ;-) The Feelthere ERJ145 is one of the planes I fly a lot. Though I have to admit I spent a bit of time redoing the FDE. It would Dutch Roll like crazy on any manual approach until I fixed a lot of the parameters. Does lack side views from the 2d cockpit which is a bit annoying, but I like the systems modeling. I used to really like the original Tower (played on a Pentium I at about 200 MHz if I remember correctly). With the traffic settings up high at O'Hare it was fun to keep everything in sequence for landing and at the same time handling all the ground traffic. I would pull it out and run it about once a month for fun. This new version looks like the same core code but with much upgraded graphics. AND, I have to agree that $70 is way too high. At $20-25 I might have considered it. Mike

Im purchased yesterday, Im able to finish the file downloading today! poor transfer speed at Wilco servers...I am going to uninstall, it's a bored software... and expensive, I don't recommend it, I liked "TOWER OF BAO" released in 1995, but this new one is not good. 70$ to waste!Finally, the most poor are the voices... uhhh looks like talking ROBOCOP without batteries.Sorry and regards to all!

I purchased it too - big mistake. Audio poor, graphics are not better than similar products at least 10 years old. I contacted Wilco for a refund, they just told me that I am sh-- out of luck because I downloaded the program. I don't understand why companies cannot stand behind their products, other companies do that without any problems. Well, no more Feelthere and Wilco for me - just got my $70 lesson.

I'm not into playing "Golden Boy" or "Troll" (air traffic controller) so I would not be interested in this software even if I didn't see all the "wonderful" comments about it and FeelThere/Wilco products in general (guess I won't be buying the Caravan any time soon).What shocked me was how much you guys are paying for gasoline (petrol to you UK chaps ;-) ). I paid $3.60 USD on Monday last (May 19) and my wife paid $3.79 yesterday (May 21) and people are screaming about gas prices. But the post from the Aussie works out to $5.99 US/gal and the price posted for the UK works out to $9.35 USD/gal. That would make a fillup of my wife's minivan run around $200US. The Airline industry is hurting. Most airlines are charging for a 2nd checked bag (and even more for a 3rd). One airline is charging for the FIRST checked bag.at this rate it will be cheaper to FedEX your bags - except that UPS and FedEX are going to have to raise rates due to fuel costs, too.This weekend is a holiday 3-day weekend - Memorial Day. Lota people normally travel. I suspect a LOT are going to stay home. We were going to travel to where my Father-in-law lives (2 1/2 hours away) for the weekend but cannot afford it. Think we'll stay home and burn a brisket Monday.Bionic Bill

Incredible mate... 70$ to waste (Im still waiting a reply from Wilco)

Same here, I have the 8800 Ultra OC and even at the highest resolution it looks like something at least 10 years old. I saw the screenshots on Wilco's website but I thought that they are bad because they wanted the website to load faster. I have seen it many times that screenshots on websites are worse than the graphics in the actual game. I thought (wrong) that a game which looks so bad on a website could just not be released with todays technology. Good luck with getting your money back.

> >AS YOU KNOW, download products are not refundable due to their>nature.> I like their "As you know" crap making it seem like what they are doing is OK. Refer them to flight1 and tell them AS YOU KNOW flight1 DOES give you refunds. These ------- (i am sure you can fill in the blanks on that one. let me give you a hint. you sit on it is the first word and the a donut has a what in the middle.). But gentlemen PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE listen to the us when we tell you not to buy from fromt hese rip off artists. ANd get rid of the "well the next addon they make has to be better" kind of attitude. As long as you keep buying they will keep selling their CRAP.
