Free online flight Sims?

Postby CJS on Mon 21 Dec 2015, 5:56 pm

Wait, wait, before you (quite rightly) chastise me for mentioning it, can I first just say that I would love to have the time and hardware to justify doing it properly. But I don't. So...

...do any of you know of any half decent free online flight sims which would run ok on a laptop with 12gb ram and an i5 processor?

I literally manage about an hour a week of playing these days, hence it's not worth me splashing out on anything proper.

I've gone down all the usual game site routes but am after something a bit more real and with cockpit or tail view, rather than the side view that most of the ones I've found use. And the shoot em up aspect doesn't appeal either.

Best one I've found is the C-130 simulator as it allows free flight if you choose to ignore the missions. The unity web player rarely seems to work though.

Thanks all for any help

If you don't mind spending £4 and you have steam, FSX:SE is on sale at the moment.

Yeah its basically the same as the original FSX but with the acceleration pack already in there and also it has better multiplayer
