New features of the RealFlight G5.5 include;
**Two New Multiplayer Combat Events**
DeadRinger and Hardcore Combat
In DeadRinger, an entirely new multiplayer game feature,
being the first pilot to fly through the floating
rings is difficult, but doing it while other pilots try to
shoot you down is almost impossible.
In Hardcore Combat sustaining high-g maneuvers will cause progressively
fading vision at best, and unconsciousness and a crash at worst.
Now more in-game control of multiplayer sessions and events.
For example, events may now end after a certain number of
points are accumulated or a specified amount of time has elapsed.
**New Combat Events**
Streamer Cut, Paintball, Rocket, Machine Gun, AceRace
Overlay a colored grid on the sky to ensure perfectly symmetrical
patterns and pinpoint entries and exits
**New Glider Launch Options**
Get maximum altitude with ease! Your first option is a
bungee launch. But choose an aero tow, and you get a free tow and
release at altitude - automatically!
The Overhead feature superimposes a site map over the terrain,
showing your location and the location of the runway.
ElectriFly Edge 540 EP (flat foam version of the Edge 540 Aerobat)
ElectriFly Cirrus SR22 Turbo (scale civilian sport aircraft)
Flyzone Switch (high-wing trainer & mid-wing sport versions)
General Atomics MQ-9 "Reaper" (UAV)
RF-97 Sailplane (new to G5.5 but available on previous Expansion Pack)
Westland Lynx Scale Military Heli
Overhead-provides pilots with overhead view of flying site
along with the position and orientation of the aircraft.
During multiplayer sessions, the overhead view displays the
locations of all participants.
PRODUCT ATTRIBUTES: Using G5.5s Multiplayer and your Internet connection you can fly with
other RealFlight pilots. Hook up with an instructor for one-on-one
tutoring, engage in combat with a single opponent or a patrol - or
host multiplayer events for a whole squadron. You can invite
guests, choose sites, aircraft and events, limit play by points or
elapsed time - and automate it all, so you can join the fun, too.
Please note, the number of participants in a Multiplayer
session may be limited by the internet connection (speed
and bandwidth) available to each participant.
Pilot's License, choose a name, select an avatar, and create your own
profile to share - including a personal statement and flight hours
In Combat Events, select a single opponent from any number of
participants and track his movement throughout the virtual arena.
Use the Aircraft Editor to add cameras to your plane or heli, just
like any other object. Movable camera angles can be changed through
your controller. Activate servos using a switch or rotary knob to
rotate the camera position.
Another RealFlight R/C simulator first - First Person Video (FPV)
puts you in the pilot's seat, experiencing your simulated flight as
you would from inside the cockpit. Window frames, wings, engines
and other detail in first-person views.
TruFlo Wind Dynamics allow you to designate wind direction and speed,
from blustery to mild. Several flying sites support Dynamic Slope
Soaring and hand-launch gliders. G5.5 more accurately renders
thermal winds-static thermals and dynamic thermals
Depth of Field Effect keeps your model the visual focal point of your
simulation - while anything that falls outside of its immediate
vicinity loses sharpness.
Water Takeoffs and Landings allow any of G5.5's float-equipped
aircraft to turn ponds, lakes and oceans into landing strips.
Built-in interface allows you to use your own transmitter if desired.
MultiMode lets you use the controller and interface simultaneously -
a feature no other R/C simulator has.
InterLink Elite controller is based upon Futaba's popular 6EX
complete with digital trims.
PhotoField sites are legendary for razor-sharp detail. 3D flying
sites are embedded in over 5,000 square miles of TrueLife Terrain.
Use the FlexiField flying site editor to add buildings, trees and
Virtual Flight Instruction, G5.5 includes new training functions and
lessons from the pros. Complete with voiceover commands and video
display of proper stick movements.
