(Not so) Pro-tip: Microsoft Flight

Posted by Roddykat (237 posts) -

Just kicking this game around a little. After barely nailing a free-ball landing at an airport, (yay, me?), I saw that you could pull up a takeoff/landing checklist by hitting 'q'. It probably said that somewhere, but who pays attention to that kind of stuff anyway...? Anywhoo, I clicked on the checklist on how to maintain cruising speed and at the bottom under the checklist was an option to automate going through the steps of the list. Me not thinking it would actually do anything, I clicked that option and not only started my plane to moving, but turned me into the treeline of the airport at a good click. And of course, me not figuring how to stop it in time resulted in a crash into said tree and, not so surprisingly, my first achievement in the game. Had a good laugh at it, as I had a Cannonball Run moment of "Make it Stop!" (No one will probably get that reference or think it's funny besides me). Anyway, games been pretty fun so far. Might actually sink a little time into it.
