Flight Simulator

Anyone else excited for the new Flight Sim game due out tomorrow (and on Game Pass ultimate which I have )

Apparently it is going to dynamically download scenery from the internet, 2 petabytes in total, as you fly over it so the detail of the world should be pretty good.

I would like to "play" this, unfortunately my gaming PC has been in pieces since I moved to Japan and my laptop is in no position to be able to handle what I think would be very strenuous requirements. On top of that, I have a PS4 instead of an Xbox so no luck there either.

The info on the various versions mentions 30, 35, 45 "hand-crafted airports". But can you land your plane at airports that aren't part of the game? I mean, it's obviously using some sort of satellite technology to map out real buildings, roads, etc why not airports.

I played a bit with the old Flight Simulator X a few years ago but didn't have the patience to stick with it. Looking at the discussion on Steam, quite a few glitches on the new one and the price pretty high, so a lot of people seem to be waiting a bit and still playing the old one.

Every airport (I think) in the world us on there. It's just that those 30/40 were given extra attention and built by hand.

My local aerodrome (Redhill) is there and looks pretty good.

Overall it is a technological marvel, the detail is astonishing considering the area covered.
