At the ignite 2020 conference held online today, Microsoft reviewed the evolution of flight simulation games since its inception in 1982. Nearly 40 years of history shows that PC games have indeed undergone earth shaking changes. The video began with Microsoft Flight Simulation 1.0, which was first released on IBM compatible PC platforms in 1982, allowing players to experience the Cessna 182 on New York, Seattle, Los Angeles and Chicago routes. < / P > < p > in addition to the visual effects, the video begins with a demonstration of how much PC sound cards have changed over the years. Two years later, in 1984, Microsoft launched flight simulation 2.0, which not only improved the overall graphics, but also added support for key joysticks. < p > < p > in 1988, Microsoft Flight Simulation 3.0 added support for more models and custom displays. Then version 4.0 added more features, including random weather and dynamic scenery, to improve the user’s game experience. < / P > < p > it is worth mentioning that this is also the first version to support the Mac platform, for which the Microsoft Flight Simulation team has developed many custom mod and pricing components. < p > < p > < p > < p > Microsoft Flight Simulation 5.0 was released in 1993, and the support for texture paved the way for the series to be realistic. Version 5.1 continued this path, increasing frame rates and introducing more model options before the 1996 release of Windows 95. < p > < p > and then there was Microsoft Flight Simulation 2000 in 1999. This 3D Flight Simulator broke through the boundaries of game console once again, and Microsoft attaches great importance to it. < p > < p > as shown in the video, there was another leap in graphic quality between 2001 and 2002. At that time, the 3D virtual cockpit function left a deep impression on countless people. Players sitting in front of the screen can get a more immersive simulated flight experience. Microsoft Flight Simulation x, which was updated in 2006, added a large number of new models and expansion packages after years of interruption, and provided DVD based distribution media for the first time. < / P > < p > the last time is 2020, and we are finally ushering in another major update of microsoft flight simulation series. The software giant hopes to let players experience a more real world with the help of azure cloud platform, artificial intelligence, real-time weather, rich model expansion, and Bing map database.
