I tired it on pc was shocked my tiny town of 20k was ingame and i landed at the airport.

The players will be doing there own simulation from police to farmers to mud runner players.

What simulation games do they make? Flight sim is made by Asobo studio.

Halo, Sea of Thieves and Crackdown are all quality simulators

On what earth are any of those simulators? At a massive stretch you could maybe argue for Sea of Thieves but that's it.

It's a flight sim...what an amazing feet...

EazyC85d ago

Feat, for fuck's sake. Feat.

anast85d ago

Yeah, you are right. I typed feet instead of feat. I bet you still understood.

"FFS" The issue is that I can correct my mistake (not an error) going forward, but you probably can't correct your necessity to solve mundane and inconsequential problems.

Reminds me of f16 falcon looks good in the air but on ground doesn't look that good especially the generated terrain
