It has been my favorite flight sim for a long time (I prefer it over
Flightgear). I love the environmental features.. rain, snow etc. The
one that gets me all the time are the darned birds. I like to fly an
old Ford Tri-Motor (bought the aircraft addon for the game) and I'll
be all nicely lined up, push to full throttle... and just as I take
off a flock of birds will fly out of the bushes or trees on the side
of the runway and splat splat splat... at least one engine conks
out... and then I usually crash. i have managed a landing a few times
There are lots of addons for this game. some free... others you have
to buy. Most are available though the sister site
http://www.x-plane.org If you don't mind paying for good quality
addons, I can recommend:
- Heinz's Planes (go for the package deal) The DC3s in this package
are really nice
- Inside passage (scenery for Vancouver Canada area)
On the free addon side, the Paris and Madagascar addons are excellent
- the Paris one has a photo realistic component and looks amazing.
There are loads more on the .org community site.
