Flight Unlimited 4?


Recommended Posts

Not sure how many will remember the sim, Flight Unlimited 3,but it was released 20 years ago and used Ortho Scenery to make a realistic state of Washington,now with true earth and XP11 we have its successor.  I had to sub in the Citation for the Beech Jet and the Seabee for the Lake 270, but most of the planes in the old sim can be found for XP11

I remember. In fact I kept playing FU3 well into the 00's, until better scenery started coming out for FS. Early landclass-based scenery for FS looked too crude and inaccurate to me, but with the Holger meshes and Megascenery, it started looking more attractive and realistic. Then with the OrbX regions I thought we'd reached the peak of realistic scenery in flight sims. The regions still look great, but TrueEarth is once again on another level. It's just a shame we can't also have AI traffic and ATC around all the smaller airports like in FU3 and FSX/P3D. I always miss the Cessnas and Pipers calling out their positions in X-Plane.

Flight Unlimited 3 was a far better sim than FS98 and FS2000,it's ATC system was good and for the time pretty ground breaking.
