Flight Sims use to be a very popular type of game but over the years the number produced really was anemic. when it comes to really serious ones it’s extremely limited. But when it comes to modern Combat Flight Sims it seem that lately the reference is DCS World. This game is modern by design and free to play with a single plane for you to test out. You can fly the SU-25T and feel the good physic of the game. If you like it then you can actually buy modules or more specifically Planes that can be from extremely detailed in recreating how planes works with extremely accurate planes computer system and switchable buttons all over the cockpit that actually do something. Or you can have simpler planes as well that offer a good level of detail without going into making you a complete pilot as if it was for the real thing. So we decided to make a few videos in order to promote this game a little with the hope of reviving or stimulate the flight sims style of game to a mature public here enjoy those guides and fun moment!
Take On Helicopters is a flight simulator that focus on civillians choppers there is a few military choppers but overall it’s all about doing contract as a civilians contractor. It allows you to fly at least in Seattle and In South Asia. The map is highly representative of the area with an nearly insane quantity of building around the place as well it forest and lot’s of type of terrain. The physic of flying is realistic and the immersion is amplified by the environment.
This video show one type of mission you can do, Time trial. In that type of mission you have a set of waypoints to follow and you need to cross them all before a set amount of time. So it will test your pilot skill well.
While this type of mission is fast paced, it’s very likely that the campaign will require you to be more careful with your choppers since the chopper models are highly detailed and you may end up having to fix those part if you not careful.
While this game doesn’t focus on the fact of getting shot at like most flight sims now a day, I think it worth a look and I’m very curious to see how the final game will be. Not to mention that this game use the Arma engine that has one really proactive moding community. So it clear that moder will tweak this game, adjust stuff, create great things with it.
Now this was recorded on a Preview Build. This mean it’s still in developement stage and doesn’t represent the final product. so you may notice a few minor bug like traffic disappearing at crossing, this should be fix very soon.
Me and Attila did some very fun formation over San Francisco, California, and we both decided we would record our flight with fraps and upload it later on. Here’s the flight from Fizznfire12′s Point of View. :)
