  1. That moment when you remember it's May and not March. I forgot it's not winter anymore.
  2. Steam normally changes their daily specials at 1000 PST or 1300 EST. This is equivalent to 1800 BST. (BST is equivalent to UTC, GMT, or Zulu time (if any of you are pilots)) So it makes sense that they release new products at the same time. Otherwise it would become a giant hassle to release games at different times of the day.
  3. "I don't know how to turn this thing off". Isn't it simply just move the throttle to idle (or by checklist), check the magnetos, turn mixture to idle cut-off, turn off magnetos, and turn off master switch? (master doesn't work, but still)
  4. MS Flight was really only a failure because of their marketing scheme. You can't just go out and give out parts of the world at relatively high prices, then go out giving aircraft without cockpits for relatively high prices as well. Really if all we wanted to do was get into a plane and fly, MS Flight would suit our needs because it gives the best all round experience. All you need to do is add in DTG Flight School's lessons located at airports in Hawaii or Alaska and you're set to go. You also have a wider range of aircraft than DTG Flight School. I'm taking a wild guess, but if MS Flight had provided the whole world at the same detail as Hawaii and Alaska before its "death" (You can fly in the whole world now because of a great community), DTG might've bought it instead. In terms of today's Flight School, I'm not going to say anything because it's unfair to judge a book by its cover, given alpha footage gameplay or not. All I'm saying is that they've done a wonderful job for first time flight simulator programmers, albeit with a little help.
  5. What a fun ride! It was more icing than lack of fuel (lack of handling), but it was nice seeing him almost be able to land that thing with little to no experience in that condition. :smile: Everything so far I've seen about the modeling and handling is good. It's just the outside environment that needs a lot of coarse and fine tuning. All the people who've released videos and screenshots are using Preview Alpha Build. Give them time, it's not even in Beta yet.
  6. Surprised the aircraft didn't break apart. Exceeded VNE and had quick movements of the flight controls while still past VNO.
  7. The purpose of Flight School is to teach people to fly. What I would expect DTG to be focusing on are flight dynamics, instruction, and possibly airports themselves. You cannot tell if they are fulfilling that goal by watching the video itself. Once they are done with those three major aspects of the Flight School, you can expect them to start fooling around with the weather, shadows, other scenery, AI, etc. This is what I hope they are doing right now after pushing the release date back nearly a full month. The video doesn't look that bad, but according to the Canadian Aviation Regulations (may be different for others), you should not be descending until established on base, while normal circuit height is 1000' Above Ground Level. I'm not expecting them to fix it because it is probably different in other countries, where you may be allowed to descend on downwind. As for DTG Flight Simulator, I am going to keep an open eye out until at least a month before release before I make any decisions or opinions on how it looks.
  8. lol what's with the rat in the middle picture up there?
  9. That's funny, it didn't work for me... 6 months ago. Why is it working now?
  10. The steam version doesn't work anymore, does it?
  11. I don't think you can do that with the toolkit. If I remember correctly, the toolkit is mostly used for adding or editing paint schemes or other objects.
  12. The first one looks like a Maule, but the second one.... is it a Twin Otter?
  13. I have nothing to say about Flight at this moment. I have been concentrating on other things. One of them is ground school. I'm going to go write my glider pilot entrance exam through cadets. If I do well on the exam and the interview, then I'll be able to go to a training centre in the summer for 6 weeks to learn to fly gliders. I know it's not much, but it's a start. About Flight: If you want to make a glider, and I have my glider's licence, you can ask me. I should be able to help you, but that's at least 8 months from now. Also, it's hard to believe that I can actually be this patient when it comes to games, but not patient enough when it comes to other things. I've been waiting for new things from Flight for about 6 months now, and nothing, yet I can be more patient than waiting to watch Hockey Night in Canada.
