Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight also introduces an updated, dynamic weather system, enhanced automatically generated (auto-gen) scenery and detailed visual effects.
Celebrate the past. Players can take the controls of nine aircraft
that changed the world, including the Ryan NYP "Spirit of St. Louis", the
airplane Charles Lindbergh piloted on the first solo, nonstop flight across the
Atlantic Ocean in 1927. They can experience what it was like to pilot Wilbur and
Orville's 1903 Wright Flyer, an invention that changed the face of history.
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight also features in-depth and
engaging multimedia content that reveals the amazing stories behind each of the
historical aircraft and the pilots who made them famous.
Explore the present. Gamers can take command of 15 contemporary aircraft, from the Cessna 172 Skyhawk SP Model 172 and the massive Boeing 747-400 to the R22 helicopter. The long-established Flight Simulator physics engine lives up to its reputation for providing an experience that is "as real as it gets."
Dynamic weather system. Players can watch raindrops on the windscreen on a foggy, drizzly morning or wispy cloud fronts move across the horizon on a hazy summer day with the improved Real World Weather system. They can create custom weather, choose from a variety of weather themes, or experience automatic live updating that mirrors real-world weather.
Improved scenery and visual effects. The software enhances an already stunning graphics engine with expanded automatically generated (auto-gen) scenery, improved taxiway and runway signs, and highly detailed modern airports. In all, more than 24,000 airports from around the world are featured.
Interactive 3D virtual cockpits. Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight improves on the franchise's virtual cockpit by allowing pilots to operate aircraft controls, tune radios and flip switches without leaving the virtual cockpit view.
