It’s really good. My computer is 4 years old and runs it pretty well, all things considered. 

Bummer. I don't have a gaming computer, this is coming to the Xbox, but it'll be a long wait. Looking at custom builds, looks like it'll cost at least 600 USD to run this thing.

Can you fly over Bandon Dunes and do a screencap, lol?

I never got into flight simulator. 

I didn't either. I kept stalling and crashing. But the visuals in this one are amazing.

I had a flight sim for radio control planes.   It was great for learning new tricks on real RC planes.  It ran on Windows 98.   I could pick all different types of RC planes and using a realistic RC controller do several types of aerobatics.    I inquired about updating the software to Windows 10 and the price had jumped about 800% over what I paid back in the day.    I still have that old Windows 98 laptop and may fire it up to use the RC flight sim.

The MS 2020 flight sim does look great.

If they bring it to Xbox I'll definitely buy it. The 2014 Mac Mini I have running Windows 10 in Bootcamp doesn't even come close to meeting the required specs for PCs, though.

Last Microsoft FS I purchased was FS2004. At that time there was also a very active 3rd party ATC simulation that someone was able to merge the pieces, so not only were you flying from point A to point B, you were doing it under the control of live verbal ATC. I tried both parts, and it was always interesting seeing a plane appear on you radar screen, and the pilot reporting in.

I spent way too many hours flying from Chicago to LA, or Chicago to NY. Cross county would have kept me up all night.

Here you go. These are on the lowest settings possible, FWIW.

Thanks! Pretty good, guessing it’s not  custom mapped.

I’m guessing it’s gonna be a long wait. A year?

Ok damn it. I gotta try this simulator. My kid has a serious gaming PC and I’m sure this will look awesome. Maybe they’ll make this for VR Oculus Rift?

    • Did you end up checking it out?
    • You know some people pay good money to be spectators at events like these. 😂. I have a friend who thinks I'm a slow player because I always get to the course after him, take two practice swings as part of my preshot routine, and use Aimpoint when putting what's m whereas he just hits and takes a look at his putt for a second or two before putting.  I don't think I'm a slow player but maybe i am 🤷‍♀️. That said, generally speaking, i don't have a family or anything i have a specific time that i have to get back for so a 4-4 5 hour round doesn't bother me as long as we're not stop, go, stop, go, stop, go.  If it feels like we're in rhythm then i generally won't be bothered bc the round won't feel like it takes a while.  I guess playing at public courses generally on weekends when you know it's going to be filled with ppl just makes me expect that a round won't be less than 4 hours.
    • Day 27 (23 Jul 21) - long day w/the grandkids, decided a few minutes with the putter was what was needed.  Worked on backswing - downswing length making sure both are equal length.  
    • Has anyone successfully got a round off of a GG Live system via computer in the past few days?  I'm wondering if Wednesday's failure was related to some sites disappearing briefly from the internet (although I was able to access the GG site).   Right now, mine is just recharging so I can use it on Sunday.  Would be nice to get the stats for today.
