The Flight Simulator experience and other tangential thoughts

  • FS 2004 Aircraft

    We constantly see posts on various forums about how poorly we model aircraft, how we should have chosen this aircraft instead of the one we did, etc. We see this so much we've developed pretty thick skins, and frankly some of the criticism is well deserved...
  • Playtesting

    Last week we held another play test of missions, so I thought I would share some thoughts about play testing. As team members we try to squeeze time into our day to play with Flight Simulator X, especially areas that we don't directly work on. This...
