For this epic tour of Australia with the soon-to-be released Microsoft Flight Simulator I’ve gone all out for resolution – hoping for the best when it comes to performance.
All settings are maxed out (UHD) for resolution and world rendering.
Keeping in mind this is still a preview build – the results are absolutely mind blowing.
Yes there is work to be done – especially when flying in Australia – both big cities and random country areas are missing detail – but this will improve.
I hate to call this a game because it’s such a good simulator. I trained in Cessna 150 so that’s why I’m doing most of my sim testing in the available 152 and 172 planes.
I haven’t flown for a while but this sim immediately put me back in the seat for my first solo in the mid 90s.
It also helps to have the right gear so the follow is a list of equipment and how I recorded the flights.
