Hola Schnuffelduffel (Marcos) and other colleagues
As I have already expressed, I love your cultivation of the N.W. of Sapin. I would only need a little more than ... what I was going to ask you, it will no longer be necessary due to the immediate presence of the simulation giant:
I positively value that cultivation process, which you did, because now I fly wherever I fly, I see: highways, roads, bridges, large and small towns, with their correctly situated entrances and exits; I see rivers, mountains etc. and all these elements, placed exactly where they need to be, and with total realism. This vision produces great satisfaction in visual flight (knowing exactly where you are), especially to those of us who have extensive experience in "real flight", and know in detail the mountains, hills, valleys, rivers over which we fly, etc. Yes, friend user of this Forum, yes "dear artist from Dresden", you have made me enjoy this flight activity more on the PC. However, and to be honest, that resolution is still very deficient, and it will be much more so when it is launched on the market, which many hope, and a few others, wish it to be as late as possible.
In any case, the emotion of this "completely static flight" has nothing to do with the real one. The real flight is fantastic and very exciting: the ascents and descents feeling the violent pressure against the seat, the strong lateral wind that tilts the plane violently, or, ... (we like acrobatics): the loopings , barrels, augers, that when you get down, you almost get dizzy, sweating, with a dry mouth, your adrenaline comes out of all your pores and with your heart at 110 beats per minute. etc. Those sensations are unique, amazing; they are not felt in any other human activity, and that in the PCs, they simply do not exist. This strong emotion is what I remember the most because it is the most exciting aspect of the flight. However, over time, with the accumulation of hours flown, it becomes more monotonous every day, but ... that's life, and ... these PCs represent a very elementary flight substitute
A very good resolution of the scenery we are flying over gives us the visual enjoyment of flying over a real scene, which we may or may not know; That is the least of it, and the vast majority of the time, we have never seen these scenarios in the real world, but we are visually satisfied with those architectural wonders, but it is the only visual perception we have, when in real flight, we more exciting are the ascending, descending movements, centrifugal forces ... those forces that are exerted against our body, is what is exciting for those of us who like this sport.
NOW SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR SCENARIO CREATORS:
I believe that only in special areas of the planet (very well chosen) we can do some cultivation but doing a lot of work to make the most of the primitive tools available here, in this Forum, those who have given hundreds or thousands of hours building very low quality scenarios, basically because of the tool used for that purpose. If you do not create scenarios with these characteristics, all your creative work, no one will enjoy it simply because it is not attractive enough, compared to many others that are.
I think we can only compete basically in two disciplines: building flying machines and ... airports?
Anyway, dear colleagues, I do not intend to discourage you, I am simply describing a situation that will inevitably occur immediately. I love this Sim. but I am not blind to what is coming and I am simply exposing something that I am sure, that, especially the set makers have also thought about, and I deeply feel that a large part of their set creations will be forgotten.
Scenario creators! ... inevitably you are going to have to change jobs, and that ... is very hard, but that's life. Be that as it may, you will always have my deep appreciation for your creative effort.
Kind regards: Delfin
