  1. Lol. Actually tho a bit of DIY editing can make a good difference. I put a atc sound through a sound editor and it wasnt great, but sounded better and more realistic.
  2. Thank f for that. That is good news. Im going back some to just before the last flight sim was released. And had the cabin announcements in time. It was a popular program, i forget which, but also needed some download files to make it all work in sync and unless you are a tech guru it was hassle,.but sort of worked. So good news. Not a great immersion imo to hear prepare for landing five minutes after take off, lol.
  3. Realistic timing to flight phases is essential imo. Iff they are doing this that is good. I dont know about ai generated voices as opposed to actual audio wave file recordings but whatever sounds best is what counts.
  4. Thats what i love about Vatsim. I would take a few procedural tests before going public. Not as a controller, thats there anyway i think, but as a airliner pilot. I saw one Vatsim video on discord that was a co-ordinated scheduled event in Croatia i recall. A pilot had somehow stalled in the middle of the only available exit ramp, because had not received taxi to departure runway clearence,at pushback. Something like that anyway. It caused go-arounds for a couple of incoming flights. A ground controller told the virtual pilot to submit a serious incident report, and then laughed and said 'no im just jokin mate' !. It was sort of hilarious to watch all this but that was some seriously good virtual realism as well.. .
  5. When i first flew an airliner, a 767 or 747, 767 add-on i think without learning the basics. I realised that you dont start to brake when you see the runway and overshot lhr by about 10 miles, lol.
  6. Fair enough, but not trying to say that they look realistic closer up, just better than the very first releases that i saw. Unless im wrong there, and just imagining that but i think thats the case. I dont play the latest video games, so i can see why they are sometimes referenced as examples, but i just see the trajectory, based upon previous flight simulator. .
  7. Know what you mean but i think animated passengers (eg on a plane or an airport terminal). look more realistic now and better, than the first versions.. Hopefully its the same with this co-pilot. Its the first co-pilot ive seen, i think. .
  8. Im not sure what the video is meant to demonstrate that said the voices seem to sound better in this one.
  9. Just on Vatsim, i have no user experience of it but was impressed by a few internet videos. About three of them. There was full coverage albeit mostly at departure and arrival. They presumably were organized events. Edinburgh, Madrid, and a Croatia airport i recall. Maybe its coincidental and such events are hopefully in the US also. Just checked and they were streamed live.
  10. All speculation around msfs2024. My guess to the question is no. That said i dont think it makes any difference, either way to the simulator or game question.
  11. What i dont get 🙂 (other than everything) is how a subscription model equates to a better sim.
  12. Personally, i hope not. Its a reasonable question given other stuff where it is the model. I dont know iff server running costs complicates things, i dont get why.
  13. Audio sounds promising already, and procedure improvements too after one watching. The ai/atc controller issue confuses me, lol, but agree that maybe next year.

    I like hans zimmer track 'time'. For a long flight its not overdynamic but not quiet enough either to lose interest, i find. 🙂
