Not too bad

Postby ShaneG_old » Fri Jul 17, 2009 7:31 am

It's taking me a bit to download the scenery, just going with the USA for now, and I'm still getting used to the control layout, but the graphics are not that bad. :)

How is the FD?  Framerate wise, which FS is it comparable to for PC requirements?

I'm seeing 60fps with things set as high as they go.

AMD64x2 5400 2.8Ghz dual
ATI 1650pro 512Mb
x2GB OCZ 800Mhz RAM

It seems very twitchy at first, but once you get used to the pressure needed it's fairly smooth.

It needs to be remembered, that this is a work in progress, and that it does need improvement, but out of the box is quite nice for a community project.  :)

It is the most stupendous freeware project I've ever seen!!!
I've got the full world scenery now (long and boring afternoon at work) so I'll let you know how I get on ;)

Looks almost as good as FS9!  Amazing that it's free . . .

I wouldn't say almost as good as FS9

But as good or better than FS2002 for sure

The graphics remind me of the Skai Traffic aircraft (Love the Skai Traffic just FYI)

I'd definitely say that this is a great option for anyone looking to get into computer simulation, or looking for a break from all the hassle Microsoft puts you through (hehehe).
