Exclamation Best flight sim I've ever flown - seriously.

I bought 'DCS Black Shark' via digital download yesterday..

My God.

It's like joining the air force and learning to fly a helicopter from scratch.

Absolutely authentic.

Check this out. The simHQ preview.

If you're into hardcore sims, you have to get this - but it's full on.

(56 buttons just to get the thing started in authentic flight mode.)

Seriously, this is like owning your own attack helicopter and having to learn to fly the beast.

Get it here:

http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/

(Seriously feels like you're flying - mouse look around this amazing ****pit - every button clickable or turnable and fly with stick. Awesome.)

Really recommend you watch the vid, or type the name into youtube, there's a big fanbase growing around it now - especially since FlightSim has been cancelled.

Lol..the fully functioning ****pit kills me. I think this is how all sims should go. Id spend hours flipping switches and turning dials. They have the ****pit spot on, now they just need to improve their terrain engine abit.

No probs at all - there's already downloadable terrain packs that add hires textures / skins etc. Loads of third party support and amazing reviews from real pilots...

Put it this way, I just bough the trackir4 motion tracker just to get that extra immersion.

The ENTIRE ****pit is clickable / turnable.

We're talking full flight checks and booting sequences just to get the ****er off the ground.

Love it.

This can't be possible because all the HAWX threads say they don't make sims anymore.

Yep, very 20th Century

But never mind, Rise of Flight soonish and the Korea sim before the biggie - Storm of War: Battle of Britain. Beautiful terrain engines, real sims. Not so many buttons in Rise of Flight
