    Not played a flight sim in years, maybe 20 years to be honest.

    What are they like these days? And don't say "like flying a plane" :p

    Are they overly complex? How detailed are they? Size of maps/airports etc? Missions involved, or do you just fly planes?

    Reading up on it there, it isn't out until 2020.

    I wonder if it will be a next gen game?

    It depends.

    The PC version is extremely in depth but I'm not sure what this will be like. It will still be very realistic.

    You can do a full length flight from London to New york if you please :giggle1:

    Can someone settle an age-old debate and crash into a building to see if the jet fuel melts through steel beams?

    I had Flight Simulator for the PC years ago, think it was Flight Simulator 2000.

    Crashed into one of the Twin Towers and the plane just fell to the ground.

    And people try to tell us there weren't "controlled explosions".

    Get the old concord back and that's a quick 3hours.


    Would likely be PC I'd buy it for, notice the 2006 version was the last one they done? oft.

    '98 edition though, had they emulated easy melting steel by that point?

    Personally I've been of the view, for years, that 9/11 was in fact, an optical illusion, or at least dramatic performance art.

    This game brings back memories. Got it when a was about 11 so safe to say I was useless at it. MGS on Ps1 was probaly the most complex game ad played up until then, way to much going on for me at that age haha.

    A remember the one a got had 3 discs, a had a time pc with 900 MHz and it took about a day to install haha, think it was 2002 or 2000 a had ?

    Would assume if it's real scale, they likely then have an option to condense it?
