Review of MiGMan’s World Tour
Review by popular YouTube channel Sim Hanger Flight Simulation. The review starts at 6 min 39 secs. One slight correction is necessary, the flight plan IS accessible in flight by bringing up the default map display (default key 'V'). If you want to see the NAVLOG within MSFS, you will need the Microsoft Markeplace editions, which were not published at the time of this review.

""That Sierra 3-D Helicopter Simulation is so rare that no one at Sierra could find anything pertaining to it for me. Only one or two people even remembered hearing about it." - READ ON

Overall the campaign is fun and geared to quick action. The framerates were quite acceptable and only really reached annoying lows in missions such as the D-Day invasion.

This is a fitting successor to Jane's F-15, and if you enjoy that sim or Falcon 4, you will surely find a lot to like in Jane's F/A-18.

One of the crowning achievements in the Golden Decade of flight sims which presaged the fluidity and detail we would take for granted in the years ahead.

What a missed opportunity. The PC sim crowd expects more, especially from a sim with the Janes name attached.

MiGMan thanks Fausto Romeo for this review which was actually one of the first additions to the Flight Sim Museum.

Like most (all?) folks, my first flight in MSFS 2020 had to be to my childhood home.

What I said 18 years ago about Flight Sim 2002 seems totally applicable to this new sim:
Previously to get anywhere near this level of detail for a particular locale you would have to purchase a 3rd party scenery pack and then suffer abominable frame rates.

With the ability to automatically generate buildings, trees, static and flying aircraft and the associated radio traffic this package must have sent shock waves through companies whose business was based on enhancing the Microsoft sims. Still, the open architecture is there and the Pro version even includes an object / aircraft construction kit.

I'd imagine some business plans are hastily being rewritten and in the end we are all better off.

The sim has the ability to support computers and graphic cards that aren't even built yet - but they will be!

Yet it still runs on an average PC and looks good. Who could have imagined 10 years ago that this level of detail and complexity could be modelled on a PC? Only in my dreams!

MiGMan, 2002

I think Orbiter should really be flown in a dark room up close to a big monitor. It's like looking out the window of the Shuttle, with Bach, Strauss, and Ravel cycling in the background.

Orbiter is a amazing free 3D Space Simulator written by Dr. Martin Schweiger, Ph.D. Orbiter contains accurate math and orbital physics, and has an extensive community support base.

Back in the early eighties a couple of Englishmen left their programming jobs with the Royal Air Force and in 1984 established their own company called Digital Integration. Their goal was to develop complex flight simulations for home computers that would be very advanced in flight modeling accuracy, graphics and attention to detail. MiGMan thanks their experience developing simulations for the RAF the enterprise got off to a very good start.
