Well, you are obviously not interested in Falcon 4 so maybe this sim will get you back into the genre?[/quote]

I'm not interested in Falcon 4 either, it has outlived its usefullness.

No other flight sim out there has a dynamic campaign like Falcon 4 and its my firm belief that no future flight sim will.

I've tried to be diplomatic about this subject, but now I'm just going to say my peace. If you don't like Falcon 4 then real simming probably isn't for you. The only sims that I've seen that come close to Falcon 4 in terms of realism is Janes F15 and 18. Even IL2, a more contemporary sim, pales in comparison when it comes to realism. Although the engine management system, which we don't use, is supposedly very realistic? The only thing more real, so far as I know, is the Microsoft civilian sims, but of course, they are not combat sims so there you are. If your complaint is that the graphics are old, then you're more concerned about eye candy than you are realism. If you're concerned about network protocols, yes F4 is old, but it is more stable than it ever has been in its history. I admit it is difficult to connect at times but well worth it. If your concern is that it's too hard, then you're too lazy to practice and/or RTM...or it's a combination of aforementioned. Bottom line, you're looking for a "lighter" sim--I use the term sim loosely here as games like LOMAC are really video games with Sim-like qualities in my opinion. F4 is still plenty useful to those of us who actually want to play a real sim and get as close to the cockpit as we can given that we don't have the luxury of strapping on real combat jets. It is simply the most versatile and realistic flight sim on the market today, and that's ---what?---fifteen years after it was first published by Microprose?

The market for real flight sims has really fallen out, and so this is what we're left with for now. So don't play if you don't want to. I fly it alone at my leisure now simply because it was hard to meet on nights when we weren't playing one of our other games. OH well.

not that I don't like realisum but falcon 4 just don;t take to me at all. It don't say play me. LOMAC and il2 for some reason ask me to play them so to speak, falcon just don't do it for me, its not the realisum. Hell maybe it because I am not a big fan of the f16.

Again, this is why I play Falcon pretty much alone unless Jedi and Panzer feel like flying. No there is no mod. If there is, I'm not interested. Again, if F4AF isn't your thing then it simply isn't. But it's a damned shame because even with Fighter Ops comes out, it simply will not be as realistic as F4AF.

Guess that depends on the player DA. I haven't seen anything that tops it yet, so I guess I'll keep flying it over other simms.

Grif, Its not that I dont like F4, its that I prefer sims that are based on guns and props not radar and sidwinders. Its not a "realistic" issue, its having to manage all the systems. Even when I fly FSX, I fly warbirds or vintage prop planes. Hell I have LOMAC/FC but for the life of me I cant even get the engines started on the A10.....

Like I said its a comfort level thing for me.

YMMV

And for you that may be the case Buff. For others...well let's just say I'm unconvinced that's their issue. That's fine. I'll continue to fly it when I can since I can't get most people here to commit to it on a regular basis.

I'll fly Falcon 4 with you whenever you want Grifter!

I used to think that the flight sim market was being killed off by all the teenage kids buying consoles but I've come to find out from SimHQ that quite a LOT of people who used to play flight sims have given that up for consoles.

If had the time, I would fly F4AF a lot more. I am simply not able to make it online when most of you are on. Work + School + RL = no prime time gaming for me. After October is over, I should have a little more breathing room. *fingers crossed*

That's the nice thing about the Thirdwire sims. There are mods out there for almost every plane between Korea and now (almost).
In fact, I think the F-101 was released this week.
