By - | Views: 15,658

Aerofly FS 4 Flight Simulator from developer IPACS is out now on Steam with Native Linux support, offering up an expansive flight sim experience. This follows on from Aerofly FS 2 Flight Simulator that released originally in 2017, with a Native Linux version of that one that arrived back in 2020 so it's nice to see continued support.

"Aerofly FS 4 is a true next generation flight simulator with an easy to use and intuitive user interface as well as custom graphics and physics engines using state of the art technology such as 64bit support, multi-core processing, native Vulkan and Virtual Reality (VR) support, a real time full multibody simulation and complex aerodynamics simulation. World wide coverage of elevation data and base aerial images are included with Aerofly FS 4."

Graphics look average for a modern PC flight simulator ("average" simply meaning typical of what other similar products offer). I wonder how good the flight physics are?

From memory without doing a direct comparison it looks like the terrain looks better than X-Plane. If the physics are good/realistic, it might be a nice middleground between arcadey but gorgeous MSFS and great realism but dated graphics X-Plane?

Nice to see Linux-Support any way - does that include VR?
