#259739 A glimpse of my other hobby...

Sounds fascinating, Herman.  It is very tempting to get back into it. The screen shots are amazing and I can only image the attention to detail.

 

Computer technology has come a long way in the last two decades, the level of realism in games and simulators has leaped forward exponentially.

So cool, looks like a great program! Thanks for sharing.

 

I used to love Flight Simulators, spent some time many, many years ago with the Microsoft Flight simulator.  It was OK, I just found it to complicated to really get into and very little reward.

 

I later got into a World War I shoot which I just loved and they company went out of business eventually.  I tried a jet fighter simulator, didn't like the feel and one other won before I gave up on them.  Eventually, I moved to first person shooters on Playstation until I weened my self completely from this type of gaming, mostly due to lack of time.

 

Non of these compare to the detail you show above, very impressive.

Bill,

 

I try to avoid those discussions.  More times than not, someone makes a post to bait people into responding just to get everyones fur up.

 

Gear purchasing is a personal thing.  You buy what works best for you and meets your needs first.  We all have our personal preferences based on our experiences, likes and dislikes, budgets etc.
