I’ve been tired of FSX for years. Lockheed Martin have done an admirable job converting the aging platform to DX11, removed bugs and improved VAS management, but still, things look pretty outdated. The scenery/terrain engine is in need of a major overhaul, and I’m tired of flying jets at 20-40 fps.
After a very disappointing X-Plane 11 beta demo (It had severe stutters on my system and fps were in the 5-20 range) I decided to check out the new Aerofly FS version. It is still a work in progress, but what software isn’t these days. It took forever to download from Steam, but when you launch it and see the scenery you’ll understand why.
It took me just a couple of minutes to get it running and what a beautiful and fluid experience it was. After doing a couple of flights this sim has won my heart and I’m going to go all in and help these folks weed out the bugs and help improve the platform any way I can.
