Wanted: 3D Flight Sim based on Google Earth
Yeah. What the subject says. Like this, only 3d. :p Or like this, but in a somewhat more cohesive package.

If anyone finds/hears of something, let me know. :)

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

Flight Simulator 9/X?

EDIT: Nevermind...but isn't that Google Earth/Flight sim thing basically what you want? :)

Re: Wanted: 3D Flight Sim based on Google Earth
I think it might be, but I can't make heads or tails of it. :p Do I need MSFS? What version? It said it could run on something free, didn't it? What's it talking about? Who am I? Where the heck is this?? :nervous:

Well, if you have a lot of money to spend (70 $ circa), you can buy X-Plane 8 with the world scenery (7 double-layer DVDs, for about 60-70 GBs of hard disk space). Look at http://www.x-plane.com/.

Tempting... if I wanted to get into something as complex as that. Even MSFS is too complex for my liking. I just wanna hop in a plane and zoom around the planet. :p

Re: Wanted: 3D Flight Sim based on Google Earth
Hmmm... google earth, and planes... If one took the camera from google earth, and integrated it with a joystick, and had about 16GB of RAM, they could do that with no latency..
