LOL, I would have a lot more time if all I had was my 6 month old! The 3 yr old on top of that makes gaming of any kind while they're awake very difficult. So, after 9PM pretty much, and if you're lucky a few hours in the afternoon on weekends while they nap!

We have a 4 month old right now. For a while, I thought after he goes down would be a good time for games and other fun stuff...

WRONG!!!

Once he's down, it's time for momomy and daddy to get some much needed sleep! I fired up SF2 the other night from 1-3 AM after I got up to calm him down and I couldn't get back to sleep. That's the only gaming I've done in the last few weeks.

the burning wrecks are really well done. the smoke effects especially are quite superior to anything i've seen from dcs, actually.

Looks amazing! I wish I had the time and patience to learn something as in depth as this.

Yep.
Little did I know as I raced to Electronics Boutique on my lunch break and almost giddily pick up my Falcon 4.0 binder, that I'd
have to wait 13 years before the sim sitting next to me on my car seat would actually be ready.

Of course I guess now I have to repurchase the thing. ( I probably won't - no time to learn jet sims nowadays)
I do miss the campaign builder in F4 though - still the best I've seen. I used to spend more time designing missions
than flying. A few modern sims could learn a thing or three from it.

Great review Beach.

LOL..that is so funny..and so true. Although we did have some pretty good stuff in between. The FreeFalcon stuff and Allied Force were nice notches in that direction (and the previous BMS versions).. But to have stability AND beauty.. Wow..

Can't wait to MP..

Can't wait to stop working these 12 hour shifts so I can fly again. I have 4 kids 11, 10, 9 and almost 3 years old. I get to fly a few hours during the week, when the wife is at school and Friday and Saturday night from about 11pm-5am. i work Mid shift so I'm up all night and try to keep that schedule during my days off.

Beach, you little rippa. Thanks for the review.

My original F4 box set was (like another) going to rear its ugly head on e-bay. I guess i am going to have to try like the rest of the dads here, to find the time to re-learn this bird (never fully got into F4 as the graphics did put me off)

But one question.

As you have brought to light again... Falcon 4. Is this going to highlight the shortcommings or necessities / pros and cons of having a dynamic campaign and the lack of such things in sims like DCS (which is my sole sim atm)?

I would be intersted in your viewpoint as a fellow Sim junkie (and RL pilot) what this portion of the sim (Dynamic Campaign) means for you.

I understand my last question can be a flame thread starter, so if for interests of safety within the board community and flame retardant vests, if you prefer to not answer that question, that is fine.

Best regards,
Bogus
