35. Re: Star Citizen's Realistic Flight Explained Jun 19, 2014, 14:56 Zoom
jimnms, i was about to mention KSP too. I am a "sim jock" and i like the approach taken by Roberts here. I am certainly not expecting atmospheric-like flight, that would be very disappointing.
KSP is a good example of a fun, ultra-realistic simulator (yes, check it out, especially with some realism mods like FAR etc..). People love it anyway.
Here by taking a hard core approach, they'll allow skill progression for the pilots, a newbie will get his ass handed over by veterans unless he's a native space pilot The differentiation by skill is better IMHO that forced game mechanics ("level up", which in MMO's is translated into "pay to win")..
Let's see how that plays out over time. Also consider that bigger ships will handle like trucks, there it's less about 3D piloting skills and more about having a good team.
