Just got this game, any top tips? I am strugglin' to get my first licence!
dont think after 30 minutes of flying you will be ready for a 747-400 ... i normally get about 4 miles from heathrow before ditching ...
Start with the Cessna 182 at Meigs and try taking off (relatively easy) and fly straight and level for a while (slightly more complicated) before attempting any sort of landing (the most difficult part).
I've been flying the various releases of this sim for the past 8 years or so and I still consider it one of the most challenging pieces of software ever created.
With all due respect to this excellent forum you probably need to visit a specialist FS forum. Am I allowed to mention any?
I got this game but the Logitech FF Joystick was too annoying, while trying to keep level flight the FF would kick in and cause the plane to drop every 20 secs or so, I tried every patch for the game and the joystick but still it didn't work. I too was guilty of trying to run before walking, after 20 minutes or so I tried to fly and land a 747, after a few miles I had wrecked the landing gear and the flaps so you could imagine what that did for my chances of landing safely..............
I honestly don't think I have the patience for a game like this, though oddly I did like MS Train Simulator I'm ashamed to say
I used to use a joystick (CH Flightstick Pro) but have been using the CH Yoke, Pro Throttle and pedals for the last few years. You can probably tell I'm fairly serious about flying
Unfortunately I'm not familiar with the FF sticks but I imagine they add a lot of realism on landings and take-offs. I assume you've tried changing the sensitivities with FS2002 to limit the effect of FF?
Landing a 747 after 20 mins eh? Challenging to say the least but still quite easy compared to landing Concorde which remains THE most difficult aircraft to control.
