Open Falcon Vs Lock-On: Modern Air Combat

Sun Aug 31, 2008 3:23 am

I'd like to hear what everybody's opinions are regarding the two simulations...

IMHO: The simulation accuracy is better in Open Falcon in terms of the flight-dynamics of the aircraft, the cockpit also seems better and is fully clickable -- Open Falcon also seems to have better engine-sounds. Open Falcon also has better up-close landscape-detail in terms of grass and taxi and runway detail, it would appear that the graphic detail for afterburners are additionally superior. From long range it would seem that Lock-On: Modern Air-Combat may actually have better landscape detail (in that it appears smoother not as grainy), although clouds are better in Open-Falcon. Lock-On: Modern Air-Combat seems to look less choppy when displaying rapidly-moving objects (like a plane nearby rapidly flying by), particularly up-close and maintains a smoothness which Open Falcon seems to have trouble with. Open-Falcon though does seem to more accurately display moderate-speed motion, especially from long-range.
