Some tinkering with running UTCanada in it, ran like a snail, but gives a good idea how the engine scales.

and #2 was just crazy experimenting

Will try churning out some pictures of it with "playable" settings later.

Have you guys tried running multiplayer yet? I have been on it for the past 20 minutes and it is a lot of fun, as long. If someone is in the tower it is even mroe realistic.

You can fly, fly with someone or even be Air Traffic Control.

I like hearing what people say when they are lining up to take off and I fly by at an extremely low altitude in a f-16 jet. It drive's them crazy..that and fly-bys of the tower.

I know it sounds lame capnkill but it's really cool flying with other people all around the world.

No, it doesnt sound lame, I just couldnt imagine what you could possibly do. I didnt even know flight sims had multiplayer.

So is it like just flying and talking with someone via a microphone? Or can you do a pilot\copilot type thing? I just dont see how people interact in a flight sim.
