OK! Enough with the "Flight" section...WHERE'S THE OUTERRA SECTION!?!?

I just tried the demo on a machine with the following specs:
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
AMD 4400+ Dual Core @ 2.2Ghz
2GB PC-3200
ATI (AMD now) Radeon HD3870

With the screen resolution set at 1400 X 900@ 75hz, I was getting between 15 and 35 FPS! That's better than FSX on the rig in my sig! I will be watching this project with GREAT interest!

I agree there should be an Outerra Section.

And before people comment on it you must remember that it's still a Beta.

For example it uses far too much Graphics Card Memory according to the Development team.

Man, you guys are putting a lot out there for a sim that is barely usable.  The one I have, the plane is almost uncontrollable, you have to respawn every time you want to change a setting, there is no pause feature, the plane is basically just a white shell with no markings of any kind, and you can't even land the thing.  There is NO flight model.

It looks good, yes and I did pay the $15 so I will be getting the game when complete, but several companies (Aerosoft, for one...) have tried making an FSX killer now and nothing has panned out yet.  I know it's in an early stage, but to be honest, I don't think it rates gushing over yet.  ;)

I just feel, that as far as potential goes, it could go a very long way. It isn't being developed to be a flight sim, but it would be an interesting platform to base one on. The only thing I didn't care for is the realtime downloading of terrain. Anyway, I get that it's only a rendering engine as yet, but again, so much potential. That's all I was saying.

Well there should be a Flight Model. It uses the same FDE Program as Flightgear.

As I said it's still a beta & it will get better.

It's more usable than Flight. ;)

Seems like MS Flight received a FUS RO DAH from the flight sim community  ;D
