    "Flight Simulator 4 half as fun as YS !"

    March 11, 2013   |   By SatelliteSteve

    Version: YS Flight Simulator 20120701

    Pros

    Install options gave options to NOT install other language, and a choice of GL or DirectX saving tons of disk space. Microsoft just overloaded the memory, it never real time like YS here. Loaded with VFR and IFR options, record your take-off's flight, and landings. Tower contact if you wish. Best was rudder, flaps, thrust reversers, realistic flight guages and all visable in different views.

    Cons

    Not big on terrain. Some 360 degree views could use a
    "slow------[]------fast slider.

    But for the price, I could fly a Cessna after playing "crabbing" on cross winds. (wink)

    Summary

    Worth the download. Installed on first try. Found my AVB Top Shot joystick right away. No jerky screens. Full post flight stats. The person responsible must belong to the AOPA ! My Dad was USAF and a Boeing employee. Shame he left us in 86. He would have loved it more than I do. Keep this guy in business....donate. Steve@BDW 9-R

    "Good and very simple flight sim"

    August 01, 2012   |   By Tylius

    Version: YS Flight Simulator 20120701

    Pros

    Light, fast, diverse planes

    Cons

    No great details.

    Summary

    This is a flight simulator to be relaxed mainly. ...and to test some acrobatics that have in your mind. It`s very light, does not need an expensive computer to run, everyone could test its favorite plane, in a flat landscape, without trees, with some buildings and little mountains.

    "Brilliant, a real gem"

    November 20, 2011   |   By Shnbwmn

    Version: YS Flight Simulator 20110207

    Pros

    - it's free
    - it runs fast
    - multiple maps, scenarios and planes to choose from
    - small file to download; quick install
    - joystick support
    - Windows and Mac support
    - great community who regularly contribute their own add-ons
    - no nonsense, just pure realistic simulation
    - network support, for playing against other people
    - A.I. support

    Cons

    - graphics aren't great
    - interface is 1980s

    Summary

    This isn't a game, but rather a proper simulation package. Practice your flight maneuvres for playing in other flight games and get the feeling of various aircraft. The non-existent graphics make the sim ultra-fast and makes one focus on the flight and not the sight. Perfect.

    "It's free, that's all you need to know."

    September 14, 2011   |   By keggsy

    Version: YS Flight Simulator 20110207

    Pros

    It has the features of some $$$ programs, but it's free.

    Cons

    Really needs a joystick or flightstick for full enjoyment.

    Summary

    I like the story behind this product as much as the product itself. A computer programming professor and flight sim fan produces these programs for free to enjoy.

    "Great flight sim for novices"

    April 19, 2011   |   By techfreak1

    Version: YS Flight Simulator 20110207

    Pros

    - Very easy to get started
    - tons of aircraft to choose from (ADDONS!)
    - many different maps
    - runs on many low-spec computers

    Cons

    - graphics not as good as other flight sims
    - relatively small userbase (but growing)

    Summary

    Overall, this is a great game. Though it may seem cartoonish and unrealistic, once you have some great addons in there this can be very fun to play. Unlike some other sims, you will be sure to max out the FPS on this game if you have a computer less than 3yrs old. And if you have an even older computer, you will get near-max FPS.

    The addons in this game are amazing. They can range from commercial airliners like the 747 to fighter jets like the F-22. However, the game is not limited to modern day planes. There is a huge selection of WW2 and Cold War-era planes, and there is even the Wright brothers' plane! All of these aircraft are quite high quality. Addons are very easy to install, you just copy and paste and you are good to go (see ysfhq,com for a tutorial).
    And that's just the aircraft addons. There are a ton of maps available for download, with ranging scenery from Japanese countryside to urban metropolis. There are also is a Grand Canyon map and various naval aviation maps.

    All of these addons are made possible by the worldwide userbase this game offers. When you are flying on a server, it is quite common for you to meet someone that is not from the same country as you. The main fansites that are out there are YSFHQ.com and YSPilots.com. There is also a Japanese-speaking community, as this sim is very popular in Japan.

    Some features of the game:
    - multiplayer/online play
    - air combat
    - a variety of weather conditions
    - a landing practice mode

    This is a great sim for people getting started in flight sims or returning simmers. It is very easy to get started, and can be a very fun game for both "coffee breaks" and hardcore gaming (endurance mode). Don't let the graphics discourage you from the game; the gameplay far outweighs the graphical detail (but if you want more detail addons are available).

    For more information on the game, and the community forums, I strongly encourage you to check out YSFHQ.com , where you can download addons and ask questions if you have any. The multiplayer serverlist is also located there.
