Hope everyone is doing well!
I was able to get the new Flight Simulator game to finally run! Holy cow talk about a resource hog 🙁 But I will say the graphics are nice and there are a lot of neat features. I love the live features. Live traffic, live weather, etc…
I am actually just starting a flight as we speak, of a live flight. It is from KRFD to Oakland, CA. The game grabs actual real life flight data, and you can fly the same flight! I normally like to fly the Cessna 172. But obviously, the Cessna 172 is not going to make that trip. So, I am going to try flying the Boeing 787. This will be fun.
There are a few things that I want to complain about though. Some of my visual reference points to fly into KRFD, have been taken out of the game 🙁 And also when you crash, it does not show the crash anymore. And the whole resource hog issue and crashes alot. But overall I like it. I think if it didnt take up so much resources and the game didn’t crash so much.
Here is a screenshot I found online. So you can see just how amazing the graphics are!
So here I was thinking summer was slipping away from us. But the next few days are going to be mid 90’s 🙂 Heck yeah I am excited! What we really need though is a good thunderstorm. We had a little bit of rain last night. But nothing like how much we need. I think we are in a drought. If not, we are not far from it. Plus a good thunderstorm would be nice 🙂
