    Also the default speed is 0 kt.

    No support for HDR, bloom, lens flares.

    I downloaded it and tried it out. When flying over towns it did look like shit.
    Maybe San Francisco looked nice, dunno what town I flew over, but it looked like shit.

    Also it didn't have Stockholm-Arlanda Airport (IATA: ARN, ICAO: ESSA).

    I'm impressed by both the visuals of X-Plane are great and the video of FlightGear is impressive too!
    Yeah, but when you download it, where do you see any jet?
    It comes only with shit planes. You can download some jets, but they're alpha quality.

    It doesn't come with cool fighter jets like the F-22: Raptor or the F-35: Lightning II, etc.

    Perhaps you would like some Ritalin?

    Michael, have you inquired with the FGFS devs about benchmark support?

    Wrong game dude. Get you an Ace Combat 6 or this other Tom Clancy thingy. They are fcking arcade, but then you will be looking for badass fun anyway I guess.
