First, i'd like to thank richlp for taking the time to answer my question about how to start an online MP flight session. He told me how to do it as opposed to suggesting that I read the manual. It was a quick and easy solution and for that I am very appreciative.
Back on topic. I jumped into a session that "Jeff" started (awesome guy). He followed me around for a while and we began chatting. He was very polite... no profanities, no hostile comments etc. I enjoyed his company immensely. After flying around for a while, Jeff thought it would be fun to do a mission (something about a $100 hamburger... LOL... reminds me of the time that a friend of mine flew me to Catalina Island and we got a buffalo burger.) It was expensive, but very tasty... heh.
Anyway, Jeff and I did a canyon run in the biplane. It was really cool. The scenery was great and very smooth (fps wise). After making the run, Jeff and I switched planes (not sure of it's name, but it's the low wing). By this time, another player joined us. I can't remember his name, but he was from Sweden (also a very nice guy). So we all met on a strip of dirt and lined up for the ride. We made the same run that Jeff and i had just made, but this time is was MUCH faster being as how we had a much faster plane (duh)...
I normally fly in the spot view, but this time I chose the cockpit view. Whatta ride! I have a high-end system so even FSX is fairly smooth for me, but Flight is flawless as far as being in high density areas... it's able to maintain smooth fps at all times (can't say the same for FSX... but that's another thread).
I'm really enjoying the challenges of Flight, simple and gratifying.
Although Flight can't really be compared to FSX at this point as it's in it's infancy... but it sure has potential. I will say this, although it bothers me as a consumer that MS chose to remove a lot of features that FSX has.... they are certainly awesome business men because offering the sim for free.... THEN offering optional features for an additional fee... what a great marketing strategy! They're going to make a spit-load of money on this game.
Anyway, I can't wait to see how Flight progresses. Although initially disappointed with flight because I was expecting a FSX progression....I'll admit, it's working it's way into my heart as we speak!
