just when you thought it couldn't get any weirder

ha this is sweet im gonna try it also there is a flight sim in google earth

Haha, neat! Though, I think driving a real car is easier than this simulator. It started me out angle parked in the middle of the freeway. :O Found my way home, then took a drive in the woods behind my house.

Driving a tractor with levers instead of a steering wheel is easier then driving this thing.....it was very odd to get used to. :-)

It's very hard to go straight. Any other direction is easy.

Oh, I didn't know that's were you started. When I type in my address, I can find my new school, but not my old school that requires like, three turns...I ended up in a cluster of homes that I never saw before.

it turned out, I didn't go far enough.

Flying-car... You'd thing it'd give you coordinates? Maybe in the finished version... L

You could get close to that but increase the head up control (upper right corner of the screen).....I just wish street signs were visible.....I couldn't tell where I was....

I know my local area, but I'd probably be stuck elsewhere... L

Yeah, my first "drive" was through NYC (I am NOT familiar with anything but a few maps of the area) starting at 34th street....I couldn't tell which direction I was heading, and when I leveled off and looked for street signs, I couldn't find them or maybe I just couldn't read them. After running over a few buses and cars, decided it wasn't worth the effort to try to avoid them :-)

Speaking of a few a buses and cars, somewhere close to where you start, there is a bis that is half or 1/3 missing, I'll try and find it.

When you make the view Head Down, so you are level with the road, it creates WHITE OUT spots, especially in the city *sigh*

It does that to me no matter where the camera is for me. Can't wait for the final version.

I like this, with the camera controls maxxed I'm flying in my very own hover car!

I don't like it. I barely press up, and all of a sudden I'm going 100km/h. I think it's because of my computer though.(Is it?)
