If they will deliver this sim including the whole world it will be like 1 TB big lol.
But it sure looks good. Waaaaaay better than XP10 and even better than Flight.

Looks great. I am looking for English support from their website. I'll keep my eye on them but I must say, damn expensive!!

Aerofly is an R/C simulator, nothing to get overly excited about unless you're into radio control airplanes.

Aerofly is a RC simulator, but Aerofly FS linked above is a Flight Simulator.

George looks good was wondering have you tired the x-plane 10 demo with the global lighting?

I have. The lighting is great. The landing light casting real light is very welcome after decades of the same flat microsoft overlays.
Autogen looks good. Lots of subtle visual improvements.

Its still WAY too drab though. Lighting lacks kick from direct sunlight.

With both Xplane 9 & 10, I could never get past the difficult to configure controls, views & flight models. XP10 seems to have introduced low fps performance too, so I wasn't blown away to be honest. I gave up trying to configure it after I got the 747 to pirouette like a 1kg RC model :) Its not for me. Yet.

R/C simulators generally don't have animated pilots or cockpits.

lol George, I tried for like 2 days to configure the controls, views I finally got some working, sort of and flew around the airport some cool stuff like you mentioned the autogen and the global lighting was the best thing not sure about the clouds yet have to a couple do a couple of flights been trying to mess around with the autopilot.

Man I wish fsx had this system, but some other stuff like the ui needs a major overhaul its just to basic very dos like and very difficult I have been playing all kinds of games for a long time now and I have to say it wasn't easy setting up. I wish the guys all involved with x-plane all the best so maybe later on down the road they might upgrade some things and the Aerofly sim looks cool so far so you never know if they might expand it in the future, it looks like Microsoft flight starting beta I know flytampa cannot talk about certain thing's so that should be a very interesting start for 2012.

You don't know how to setup the hatswitch (In XP10) to rotate the views do you? I've been trying for 30mins. UGH.

Thanks Cesar. I'll try that later.

I'm still not getting on very well with the flightmodels but the night lighting is awesome.
