Flight Simulator 2004
Drawing on 20 years of experience developing award-winning software, the Microsoft Flight Simulator team commemorates both the centennial and its own aviation milestone with the release of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight.
Key New Features
* Dynamic weather system based on realistic atmospheric physics, with true three-dimensional clouds that form and dissipate, and automatic real-world weather updates when you're connected to the Internet.
* Weather “themes” that generate a wide variety of stunning—and challenging—flying conditions with just a few clicks of a mouse
* Enhanced interactive air traffic control (ATC), including traffic at all airports around the world (including non-towered airports), altitude changes en route, pop-up IFR clearances, and precision and non-precision approaches to multiple runways
* Interactive 3D “virtual” cockpits—tune radios and operate key aircraft controls and avionics by pointing and clicking in the virtual cockpit view.
* Scenery improvements, including taxiway and runway signs, enhanced auto-gen 3D objects, more high-detail airports, and improved lighting and sky effects
* Garmin 500 and 295 series GPS with color moving maps and airport/facility information
* Improved full-color map view with terrain display
* Improved support for 3D graphics hardware acceleration in multiple windows and across multiple monitors
* Learning Center–a “Web site on the disc” available while the simulation is running that includes a Key Topics visual guide to the features in Mcft Flight Simulator, direct links to flights and lessons, flight briefings, how-to procedures, aircraft handbooks, and more.
* New and expanded lessons and ground school topics
* Kiosk mode for unattended demonstrations
