Hit the pause button on your keyboard, open up the camera tab and select showcase. You can then leave the plane and fly around, F & R goes up and down.

Yup. Flew around LSU and TS still shows the north endzone being constructed.

Sucks it couldn't have Google Maps but Bing. I understand why, but shtt, Google maps is awesome.

I love this game, it has opened up "sims".

Last night I did the longest leg of the CA/NV bush trip. Landed at Burning Man, but the game didn't recognize me as being at the right place so it wouldn't auto-save my progress. I had to drive around on the ground to find the hit box, but in the process I managed to flip the plane and have to restart the whole damn leg because of a glitch.

I've done only free rides outside the tutorials.

It is still a mess of a game but also amazing and fun.

For sure. Just wish the mess would have been on one of my 7 minute legs, not my 50 minute leg.

I downloaded a F-18 the other day and had a blast. It's a FSX port, so it's not near perfect, but it'll do for now until someone releases newly designed fighter jets.

What are you using to fly?.

The only thing I could get a hold of is this T.Flight HOTAS 4 Flight Stick (works on pc or ps4)

I should have a Logitech G Pro Flight Yoke ship this week from an eBay purchase.

The bush planes are my favorite. I can take short trips and land in a dime anywhere.

re: Microsoft Flight Sim Release Date Aug. 18
I like to do short flights from MSY to the random fields/landing areas for crop dusters used by cane farmers.

Theriot Field is right by my home. So did MSY to Theriot Field last night (like 10mins). I love flying over places I spent time in boat, as in Lake Des Allemands and Lake Boef. Bird Island is in the wrong spot in Lake Boef though. It is a floa'ton which moves around the lake with seasonal winds.

Sorry if it's already been asked in this thread, but does anyone here use FS Economy and does Flight Sim work with it yet?

ETA: If any of you hard-core flight simmers don't know what FS Economy is, check it out!! It's like an MMO (almost) for flight sims... lets you fly in a virtual "world" where you can earn virtual money, buy and rent aircraft, buy your own FBOs (once you earn enough), etc... Best free addition to any flight sim that I've ever found!

I want this game BAD. Any word on the release for Xbox?

re: Microsoft Flight Sim Release Date Aug. 18
No Xbox release info yet. I'd assume with all the new XSX info coming out that MSFS info isn't far behind. There's no way the base One would run it. Maybe the One X, assuming you have good ventilation.

I'm about done with the Nevada bush trip. Should finish it up tonight or tomorrow and get the achievement for not using any navigation aids. It's been a little difficult to spot some of the more remote runways. Sometimes I need to do a circle to find them and get lined up.

I'm so glad I finally started using an Xbox One controller. Much better than using a keyboard to fly.
