Microsoft Flight screenshots

You will find 6 new preview screenshots of Microsoft Flight on their official website, showing their design efforts on water, trees, Autogen and other environment visuals.

Earlier this month, developers also replied to some comments we read a lot here and there, about “simulator” dropped from the game title, the FSX similar look of preview screenshots and about the wider audience they’re trying to catch.In a few words, dropping simulator from the title doesn’t mean they’re going to make an arcade game. They will keep on doing a simulation software, just they want a straight marketing around the “flight” experience.

They explain the FSX similar look of their previous screenshots series because the developement stage is very early and think they will catch more people using Flight by improving the user interface and the software performance on actual machines.

Perhaps I should clarify my last post. My comment was: “with a lot less hassle.” What I meant by that is that a new program will be developed at some point without the performance problems that plagued FSX when it was released. Now, Microsoft has taken a somewhat different approach using the experience of FSX to create a new program (sim) that hopefully will not have the out-of-box problems that FSX had. Many of us are still using FS9 because of those problems. I have a copy of FSX Deluxe. However, it still sits on my computer desk shelf because… Read more »

Heres the passage… Microsoft: Makes a wonderful anouncement for MS Flight. Response: Thinks name change makes it arcade game and is not interested. Microsoft: Posts first videos to market flight and launches website, days after anouncement. Response: Thats all pre-render show me something real! Microsoft: Posts real screenshots this time and has to explain name change. Response: Thats just like FSX, they better improve ground textures, its rubbish. Microsoft: Addresses name change again and explains commitment to simulation, performance and wider appeal. Response: Graphics now where near like addons, it will be slow slow slow and looks the same as… Read more »

They knew that if they didn’t do this, someone else would develop a sim that would surpass FSX with a lot less hassle.

The screenshots look promising.
