Anybody partaking?

its quite fun seeing your own house and whatnot. I do immediately want to shoot down an IL-2 or something, of course.

I'm tempted, I used to be a fan of flight sims back in the day, but no longer have a joystick or £60 to drop on a game any more. :C

I think Kos is.
I'd need a new PC.
I'd also get even less WFH done.

Is the experience much different from zooming out on Google maps over your house to a certain height and slowly moving the map making nnnrrrrr noises?

£1 first month Xbox PC Games Pass, £3.99 thereafter. The joystick would be a dealbreaker for me, but some are having fun on gamepads apparently.

I mean, this probably depends a lot on how much you like flight sims! And I think it'd be closer still in Bing maps.

IL-2 was an awesome game.

Thank you for reminding me about the £1/$1 PC Game Pass thing! I was going to buy FS 2020 on Steam, but now I don't need to. Hurrah!

£1 for the first month. But that's how long it takes to download!

Have played a bit (runs OK on a 1060 gtx until you go to the really big cities), but only have an xbox pad which isn't ideal.

The graphics are absolutely stonking, and it's quite good fun just cutting about in a wee prop plane visiting places you know. It's amazing how much detail is in there, like being able to easily recognise which  hotel you stayed in on a Greek island years ago.

If Feds call you and say something bad on me, it may prove what I said are truth, they are afraid of it.
