Thanks for posting this. I've been wondering about a new version of MS Flight Simulator for a long time. Is that what this is?
I believe the old Flight Simulator is gone, good or bad. Spent too many hours there speaking for myself.
Just checked and this has gone live. There's big button saying "download and play for free"
The thing about FS is you could learn real flying skills with it - not the physical skills of course, but all the mental/logical/mathematical stuff.
Looks very interesting. Thanks.
tried it last night, was not too fond of the graphics, although the water effects look decent
Flew this sim for awhile.
Simple mouse control for beginners. Advanced users can use full blown control with high end controllers.
Free flying for the big Island of Hawaii scenery set.
Too expensive for some like me . The Hawaii Adventure pack offered is $20. For a few dollars more, one could buy the MS Flight Sim X.
Experienced server lag on long flights ending in a landing far from the takeoff point.
Buy the MS Flight Sim X Gold Edition from Amazon for about $28 if you are really interested in a flight sim.
