FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Flight Sim 2002 Screenshots




What: Microsoft® "Flight Simulator 2002"

Publisher: Microsoft Corp.

Developer: Microsoft Corp.

Availability: Fall 2001

Format: CD-ROM for Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000 operating system

Product Overview:
"Microsoft® Flight Simulator 2002" Professional Edition is the revolutionary new version of Microsoft's highly realistic aviation simulation-the best-selling PC flight simulation ever produced. "Flight Simulator 2002" introduces many exciting features, including interactive air traffic control (ATC), auto-generated scenery, plus challenging new aircraft - even a floatplane - and stunning visual enhancements that truly make "Flight Simulator 2002" Professional Edition "As real as it gets."

Features:

  • Experience interactive Air Traffic Control (ATC) - for the first time, "Flight Simulator" includes realistic, interactive air traffic control. Through pop-up menus and key commands, players ask for permission to taxi, take off and land, plus request en route clearances and vectors for instrument approaches. ATC responds with verbal instructions.
  • Marvel at auto-generated scenery - when flying above cities, towns, farmland, and dramatic landscapes, "Flight Simulator" automatically adds buildings and vegetation appropriate to the terrain below. Office buildings, factories, homes, farmhouses, and trees smoothly blend in at the horizon and fill the area with detail that adds unprecedented depth and reality to "Flight Simulator."
  • Fly in crowded skies - while the auto-generated 3-D objects fill in details below, a new artificial intelligence system generates air traffic around and between airports.
  • Experience stunning aircraft models and special effects- the new aircraft in "Flight Simulator 2002" include amazing visual details and subtle shading and lighting effects. Many special effects that made "Combat Flight Simulator 2" so exciting are now in "Flight Simulator." Players will see contrails from high-altitude jets, dramatic lighting effects, and puffs of smoke from tires at touchdown.
  • Fly new aircraft - "Flight Simulator 2002" includes the aircraft users have requested most. Climb into the cockpit of the Boeing 747-400 jumbo jet and fly in real time across the ocean or fly a bush-pilot adventure in the Cessna Caravan on amphibious floats. New players can begin flying careers in the world's most popular trainer, the Cessna 172S Skyhawk.
  • Enhanced virtual cockpits - with a 3-D graphics card, players can fly many "Flight Simulator" aircraft from a new perspective -- 3-D cockpits with working instruments.
  • Flight analysis - pilots work to improve their skills and enthusiasts looking for new challenges and bragging rights can check the precision of their flying. Maps and graphs show how well virtual pilots maintained their course, altitude and speed. "Flight Simulator 2002" Professional Edition also includes a multiplayer "instructor's station" for pilots who want to take on anything that a wily instructor can throw at them.
  • New lessons and challenging flights - the addition of a floatplane and other aircraft opens many possibilities for engaging activities. Players can be a bush pilot over Alaska, fly a 747, or earn an instrument rating in the Cessna Skyhawk. New and expanded lessons and flights help new players get into "Flight Simulator" for the first time while challenging experienced "Flight Simulator" pilots.
  • Included tools for add-on developers - "Flight Simulator 2002" features gMax, a 3-D modeling tool from Discreet. Add-on developers can create scenery objects using an industry-standard format. Also included is a vastly improved Flight Dynamics Editor that makes modifying and creating "Flight Simulator" aircraft much easier.
