Love to fly the TB-3---but it is SLOW and even on 8X speed & auto pilot it takes way to long to reach the area where the action starts. Most other flight sims use a " fast forward" key to get to a point where the action starts and the player needs to take over. Sorry if my typing and language skills are not up to par with some of you!!! Thanks CW3SF

Well you could stick it autopilot and X8 then go get a cuppa. The sim`s working out everything else that`s going on in real time. It`s very detailed and taxxing.

In most other sims that do it, they are not trying to do a dynamic campaign, so everythying is just randomly placed.

In FB, everything you come across or meet has been calculated properly by the program to get to you.

To speed this up would probably overstress the cpu causing stutters, crashes and all sorts of problems. People are already complaining about crashes as it is with 8X on auto!
