Released in 2016. Actually finished it in 2020.

Why would anyone say it's finished? Such a stupid comment.

If you don't care about the flight part, you're much better off using Google Maps satellite view. You can rotate it in 3D and see the world in higher fidelity than will be available in Flight Simulator. But if you want to use a controller and fly around like a drone, you'll be able to do that in Flight Simulator.

As for the number of airports included in Flight Simulator, they communicated that poorly. You will be able to land at just about any airport in the world and all of those airports will be much more detailed than other flight sims in almost all cases. The x airports they mentioned for the different SKUs are just extra detailed ones with e.g. hand-modeled buildings, manually created taxiway signs, ambient vehicle activity, etc. Not essential by any means but nice to have if you're interested in a very detailed airport.

Actually not. In MSFS 2020 they have pre-made models to enhance how it looks, even where there is no detailed map data.

Be careful what you wish for. Those amazing FS2020 graphics require you to always be online.
Where do you get this nonsense from. They've said they have offline mode a long time ago.

You must be kidding right? This is a joke? Or have you been living under a rock for the last year?
This sim is groundbreaking in many ways.
I can't imagine any other flight-sim creating as much hype within the flight-community as this has. Ever.

It was a fair question. This iteration of Flight Simulator is strongly Xbox-branded and extremely hyped. Microsoft royally botched their previous outing (Microsoft Flight). They're trying to make up for it this time around to some extent, but there's definitely a major effort to appeal to casuals which tends to ruin things for more hardcore users. Hopefully not in this case.

I see your point. But according to a lot of simmers, this time around Microsoft really have listened and are actively working with its community. Many of the most active hardcore simmers have already tried and praised this edition in its beta, I think it's fair to say that we this one looks good so far.

Not all VR headsets costs 1k.
And I would guess they are playing the other games or sims that are 1000 times better in VR than on a 2d screen.
Does that answer your question?

The main stumbling block for VR is the crappy controllers any headset comes with.
They are to me, the main thing that can break VR, as there is no standard and they are always clunky, demanding too much space and really, they don't do anything that a mouse and keyboard can do.

Um, they allow for 1:1 movement in 3D space, a M&K definitely can NOT do that.

And if moving your arms is harder for you than pushing a mouse, I think you have bigger health issues to work on other than "immersion".

Many people can't move their arms about, and this has nothing to do with health. Simply with the space available.

Controllers really don't add much in space apart from you flailing your arms around. So if you want to break away from the abundance of wave-shooters VR is suffering from (for this very reason). controllers quickly become non-essential. You don't move through a room any better with a controller. Far worse even.

This is what VR needs, so just my opinions here, flame away all you want =):

As usual, there are people having opinions about VR here that have never tried it.
You can't compare VR to 3D movies, it's not the same at all, no interaction and no true 3D.
Then we have the people who "wait" until 3D will give them the full immersion with a running track etc (most of those have never tried VR either).

VR is pretty great today, with some stumbling blocks.
The main stumbling block for VR is the crappy controllers any headset comes with.
They are to me, the main thing that can break VR, as there is no standard and they are always clunky, demanding too much space and really, they don't do anything that a mouse and keyboard can do.
It's just a matter of implementing the mouse and keyboard properly.
I think of them as toys, and I am too old to be interested in toys.

Then we have the people that are saying that playing with mouse and keyboard breaks the immersion.
VR controllers are breaking my immersion any time I use them.
With a mouse and keyboard, I don't have to "think" how to move as it is in my spine after 30 years of gaming.
I don't teleport around in VR, I move as in any FPS game.
Non-standard controllers will spoil this every time.

However, it seems as if Alyx will allow a seated experience according to the steam page, here's one hoping it supports keyboards and mouse.

So here's one hoping Half-Life: Alyx will raise the bar.

Isn't it ironic how Doom 1 used to require a mere 4MB of RAM and remains a shining example of a much better designed, enduring gameplay, created by much smarter and more passionate people.

These modern abominations have nothing to do with Doom except the name. They play like an even more retarded version of Serious Sam 3.

They certainly won't have an enduring mod scene 27 years from now, unlike the originals. They're just generic FPS schlock, without memorable mechanics, visuals, or level design, blending into the rest of today's overdesigned mediocrity.

Bullshit. Have you even played Doom 1 lately. It's boring as hell + ugly. There's one thing remembering something fondly, but that doesn't make it better than the present. Don't get confused.

AMD shouldn't even worry about this, nobody buys AMD to play games, they buy AMD to bitch that developers are to lazy to optimize their code for the superior AMD technology, and to brag about how much power they save while using 50% more cores to achieve 8% less performance at half the price.

Leave the gaming to the toy CPU's Intel makes.

Maybe you should keep up with current events. It used to be that no-one bought AMD for games. Times have changed.

Sounds like a good plan. The 2070 will easily hold you over for a couple of years.
No, bad advice. Because 8 GB is already not enough and the next gen of consoles is around the corner.

Do upgrade, that 980 Ti is already obsolete if you want to do VR.

Surely you realize that while they're preparing for the summer tour Bruce Dickinson or Dave Murray are not finding out about a game company using the name Ion Maiden and personally setting out to sue them right? haha

I think he's to stupid to realize that this is pure lawyer stuff.
Bruce Dickinson even said once in a concert that he didn't care if we copied his music (during the mp3 era). So this is hardly something coming from him.

@CJ_Parker: I think people are ridiculously brainwashed by Oculus and HTC online, as if they are the only brands that matter, seems like people do 0 research on their own, when in-fact they are probably among the least interesting brands.
For you I'm betting the Odyssey+ would be a perfect fit as it is for many. Cheaper, and way better than HTC Vive Pro.
Just don't get stuck into thinking HTC and Oculus are the only products there are, as these companies want you to believe.

I miss arcade flight sims from Microprose, they were a perfect balance of game and simulation for me, plus career and missions generator. Loved that, my all time fav was Gunship 2000 followed by F15 SE2 and F19 and later F117. These days there's only serous DCS (I'm glad they here, but no time to commit hours to learn proper) and silly Ace Combat/Hawx and nothing in between SP worth playing. Shame

So you completely skip the IL-2 series? Which in general opinion probably is the best thing that has happened to WW2 flight-sims.

DCS is the king of-course, and yes it takes an effort to get good, if that is so bad.

The genre that practically made PC gaming is now one of the most barren and deserted. Fucking sad.

I got into 'modern' PC gaming in 1992 because of flight combat sims like Aces of the Pacific, which was my first game on a 'modern' PC. I say 'modern' in quotes because before getting an IBM PS/1 486SX/25 w/4mb of RAM I had a Tandy CoCo3 from the time I was 5 in 1983. And one of the first games on that, in fact, was a port of the very first Flight Simulator. In all it's black and white wireframe glory. ('Is that the horizon or a mountain range?!') I also had Flight Sim 2 for it along with Epyx's Sub Battle Simulator. But when I sold it in 1991, I was left with nothing but a Genesis and sims were not exactly it's forte. (To put it mildly) When I saw an ad and previews for AotP, I had to have it! I bought it six months before I even had a computer to run it on! I didn't care, I just needed it. (And prior to this, I had stared at an ad for Their Finest Hour for three years that was in an old copy of Game Player's magazine!)

I really don't think we'll ever have those days again and it makes me sad. Game stores with shelves lined with big box flight combat sims and other simulations, wargames and rpgs? All with phone book-sized manuals? Heaven. And that's probably the only place we'll ever find another one again, too. Maybe, just maybe, it's time for me to let it go and retire from gaming altogether? There's just so much bullshit and greed. Devs no longer make games to see how far they can push their system but to see how much money they can wring out of their customers. I miss those days more than I can describe... Sigh

=-Rigs-=

What are you talking about, keep up to date. Today you have awesome sims, like X-Plane and DCS. Your bullshit reminiscence is annoying to read. Who gives a shit. Today the future is so much brighter than your bullshit.
