  1. Sorry if this has already been mentioned somewhere, but over on the Flight Simulator site there is a community update linking to a map of all the screenshots. Very interesting! https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?usp=sharing&mid=1IJYlVvT9fy9VQ9voO6cp-JS3LCBGCetW Credit goes to u/Ansenton. OK, just seen the previous post about this, saw Feb 13th update at the top of the list and didn't think there was anything new.
  2. It would be nice if, in between Feature Discovery videos, they could just release a bit of in-game footage for us to drool over.
  3. I seem to remember reading that the demo machines were high but not top-end specs. Unfortunately, I can't remember where and don't have time to trawl millions of posts.
  4. Are those procedurally generated flamingos? On a more serious note, I think "The living world" would be a good theme, showing whats alive and moving, from planes and trains to... well yes, flamingos.
  5. I missed this the first time around, I think it was so realistic it just registered as normal.
  6. If you search for this on Google Earth you'll see just how much better the MSFS version is.
  7. I tried skiing down a mountain in a helicoter, I think in FSX; it worked quite well.
  8. I don't for one moment expect to get it, but SAR missions in a helicopter would be a dream.
  9. I wonder how much of the processing is done in the cloud and how much still has to be performed locally?
  10. I'm probably on the other side of the spectrum of users. I don't have as much time for flight simming as I used to, so when I do get down to it I need to jump into the cockpit with engines running. What keeps me engaged is a helicopter with a realistic flight model, so I exclusively fly the R22 in AFS2 now. Although I would like to learn IFR, I don't think I will ever tire of VFR, especially if I have the whole world available. Anyone who flies helicopters will want high detail at low altitude, so seeing individual blades of grass is a big plus. My above post was a bit tongue-in-cheek, but it does show the kind of thing that rotorheads dream of (I'm not that good though). VR is a must for me too; I wouldn't want to fly a helicopter without it, even though it's a recipe for nausea in the learning phase.
