    Default Shit planes

    FlightGear only have shit planes like passenger aircraft.

    It doesn't come with cool fighter jets like the F-22: Raptor or the F-35: Lightning II, etc.

    The fighter planes are few and mostly, and often just in alpha or development state.

    I want advanced fifth and sixth generation supersonic fighter jets with stealth technology, aeroelastic wings, 3D thrust vectoring, and all that good stuff.

    I think you're looking at the wrong simulator for that kind of stuff.

    I think that this troll post is very funny because the FlightGear's video was made with a jet, how better to shoot yourself in the foot?

    I'm impressed by both the visuals of X-Plane are great and the video of FlightGear is impressive too!

    Yeah, but when you download it, where do you see any jet?
    It comes only with shit planes. You can download some jets, but they're alpha quality.

    Visuals sucks, just fly over a town and its all flat and everything looks like shit. Trees, mountains, etc though look decent.

    I downloaded it and tried it out. When flying over towns it did look like shit.
    Maybe San Francisco looked nice, dunno what town I flew over, but it looked like shit.

    Also it didn't have Stockholm-Arlanda Airport (IATA: ARN, ICAO: ESSA).
