    Default Hovering objects in Flight Sims are realistic after all...

    If you've ever seen a hovering building, AI aircraft or autogen objects, take look at this:

    Which sim is this representative of?
    I've never seen such in the latest P3D, for example.
    Floating buildings maybe, but not ships, NEVER ships...

  4. Default Nothin' special

    Just like with all advanced map editors that Novalogic had, and still has with their game titles. If you offset, or misuse the X, y offset, your map objects, including your runway, will be hovering 10 or 20 feet above the terrain, water. Some of these guys managed to invert the object, a ship stuck with the bow down into the ocean as well. You can get as meticulous, and organized, or as goofy as you wanna get with this stuff. Novalogic was doin', as well as cheaters online, in windows 98.
